* ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' had a BittersweetEnding as [[spoiler: B.J. lay crippled after Deathshead [[TakingYouWithMe tried to kill them both with a grenade]]]], giving the order to fire a nuclear missile on his own position. The sound of a helicopter during the end credits teased that they came back for him before it happened, with [[VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus the sequel]] outright confirming it.

** Troopers who ''are'' left behind (but not killed, only knocked unconscious) are listed as "Captured". There is a chance that they can be rescued in a future mission with their skills and equipment all intact, but that is a chance, not a guarantee.

* ''{{Spacetrawler}}'': Captain Nogg has no qualms about abandoning a crew member if that's what it takes to get the rest of his ship away safely. On the other hand, his crew has no qualms about ignoring Nogg when he tells them to abandon their mates.[[note]]They ''did'' abandon Dustin, but only because Dustin was a jerk who got captured because of his own stupidity.[[/note]]

* Lampshaded and Played with in ''Anime/VanDread''. Dita tries pulling one of these when Gascogne gets stuck. Gasconge is more GenreSavvy.
-->Gasconge: "This isn't a third rate soap opera! You go and you come back with help and get me!"
* An interesting variation is done in the Alabasta arc of ''Manga/OnePiece'': After Luffy defeated Crocodile, he carried both the king of Alabasta and antagonist Miss All-Sunday out of the crumbling room they were in. The latter was wishing for death, but Luffy didn't listen, and saved her anyway. She eventually paid him back [[HeelFaceTurn by joining his crew]].

* Similar to the above, NVA and VC troops during TheVietnamWar did their best to recover their dead, for pragmatic reasons; it spooked their opponents, and frustrated US Generals who were fixated on "body counts".

* Subverted in the ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'' novel ''Speed of Darkness'', where the main character intentionally shoots a dying (flamethrower-armed) Firebat, forcing the enemy to stay back. Though some of his squadmates give him a hard time for it, the vets acknowledge it as necessary, even effective.

* ''Manga/UchiNoMusumeNiTeODasuNa'': Seen in chapter 5, when Point Blank ambushes [[BridgeBunnies Risa, Kisara, and Jun]] by shooting down their patrol chopper. Then guns them down as they're trying to get each other to safety. Clara tries to come to their rescue, creating a brief HopeSpot, but ends up being gunned down with them. Point Blank continues to fire on her even after she falls unconscious. [[spoiler: It takes [[MamaBear Athena's intervention]] to finally make him stop]].
