* ''Franchise/MetalGear''
** ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Metal Gear Solid 2]]'': Even MissionControl suggests that you knock E.E out and drag her in order to get past some scary bugs on the floor.
** In ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater Metal Gear Solid 3]]'' punching out Eva and dragging her is the best way to keep her from doing something stupid that might attract enemy guards. Also saves on food since her stamina doesn't go down while asleep.
* Happens twice in ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' once early in the game, Tsai of the Holy Spear may knock out two of the main characters to preventing them from fighting against Luca Blight, and later on the game Flik knocks out e major of Greenhill to prevent her turning herself in to the enemy army.
* In the finale of ''VideoGame/CaptainRainbow'', [[spoiler:the island is facing destruction, and Hikari tells you to escape on the last wishing star. You can refuse, but Hikari will still insist you go. Since she won't take no for an answer, you knock her out, put her on the star and send her off to safety.]]
* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheBalladOfGayTony'', Tony is ordered to kill several men with a supply of satchel charges. Knowing that he's drugged up and has no clue how to use them, Luis knocks him out and does the job himself.
* In the early days of ''VideoGame/DungeonsAndDragonsOnline'', the "Threnal" quest chain was infamous for a hold-the-line quest wherein you needed to protect an NPC who liked nothing better than to charge every group of monsters -- and consequently draw too much aggro and get himself killed. Nowadays, he can be knocked unconscious with a dialogue option.
* This happens in ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors 7'' during Shu's story mode. At the battle of Yi Ling, Liu Bei tries to take on the entire Wu army by himself to get revenge for his fallen sworn brothers. Zhao Yun, who had pleaded with him to fall back, finally stops him with an elbow to the stomach, which knocks him out, leaving him to be carried away from the battlefield by some allied troops.

* An instance of this trope can be considered the PointOfDivergence in the ''Literature/ArciaChronicles'', which then has contained a pretty faithful FantasyConflictCounterpart of UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses. Namely, during the Battle of Graza (Bosworth), Alexander Tagere's (UsefulNotes/RichardIII) final SelfDestructiveCharge is cut short by his BestFriend Raphael Kerna knocking him out and hoisting his body over a horse that'd carry him out of the melee. Thus, Alexander survives where Richard died.

* Done a few times in ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'', like in episode 2 where Keroro [[DropTheWashtub drops about a dozen metal wash basins]] on Momoka's head to stop her from pelting Tamama with volleyballs... and thus prevent her from provoking Tamama into [[BreathWeapon retaliating violently.]]

* In the first episode of the ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' cartoon, Cyclops orders a retreat, but Wolverine refuses to abandon Beast and Morph. Because going back would be suicide, Rogue uses her power on him, knocking him out; they carry him out as they retreat.
