* When US Airways Flight 1549 went down in the Hudson River on January 10, 2009, Captain Chelsey "Sully" Sullenberger made sure all passengers and crew got into life rafts, and walked the plane twice on his own to ensure everyone was out before leaving himself. He did not leave the Port Authority facilities until all passengers and crew were accounted for.

* Hideaki Akaiwa was at work on March 11th, 2011 when the 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami hit his city of Ishinomaki, Japan. His wife of twenty years was trapped in their home under the waves, and rescue workers could not get to her. Rather than just give in to fate, Hideaki somehow managed to get a SCUBA kit and dove into the raging waters of the tsunami to rescue her. Navigating through the waters and dodging numerous obstacles including cars, downed power lines and ''houses'' getting swept away in the current, he managed to find his home and his wife. She was alive, and thanks to Hideaki was rescued. This alone is impressive, but when his mother was declared missing, he did it ''again'' and saved her. And for the duration of the disaster, he went out on his bicycle alone with a folding knife, a few bottles of water, his SCUBA gear and gave help wherever he could. He was named BadassOfTheWeek for that.

Often portrayed as a subtrope of HonorBeforeReason. In real life there is a perfectly cold-blooded reason to still do this: people are expensive and difficult to train and replace. Better (and cheaper) the guy with potentially years of experience spends some time in a hospital then you stick some neophyte right out of a rushed training course in to replace him.

* While the standing policy of [[Series/MissionImpossible the IMF]] is "Should you or any member of your I.M. Force get caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions", the way it worked out in practice was "Should you or any member of your I.M. Force get caught, the rest of the team will move Heaven and Earth to get you back before the Secretary finds out about it."

* ''Series/SpaceAboveAndBeyond'': {{Inverted}} (albeit under protest from [[AFatherToHisMen Commodore Ross]]) in "Sugar Dirt". A landing to capture a strategic airstrip goes south because the Chigs suckered the UN high command, but the Navy realizes that in order to pull this off the Chigs withdrew forces from an even ''more'' strategic target, which is now open to attack. But there isn't time to retrieve the troops already on the ground so the ships are forced to abandon 25,000 troops, including our protagonists in the 58th, for two months until they've captured the new target and can return to retrieve them... by which point the 58th have nearly starved to death and only 2,000 survivors remain.
-->'''Ross:''' As a commander, I feel no obligation to explain my actions. But as a ''man'', I have never been more ashamed of myself, or [[SoProudOfYou more proud of you]].
