* In ''Literature/TheAffix'', the gem drags Matt's friends into the fray thanks to its nasty effects on causality. Even his [[ClingyJealousGirl stalker ex]], whom he ''hates'', is pulled in, and he feels an obligation to protect her too. As he discovers his status as keeper of the Affix doesn't even fully protect ''himself'', it only increases his determination to get them out of harm's way.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', a powerful star nation might take a much smaller and weaker nation under their protection - this gives the larger nation a share of the smaller nation's resources, with none of the negative diplomatic fallout they'd get from simply conquering them. Sometimes it's simple GunboatDiplomacy, sometimes the smaller one actively seeks out protection and approaches the larger nation themselves. Given enough time, the smaller nation may eventually be absorbed into the larger nation - this is usually the case with [[TechnologyUplift uplifted primitive species]].

** A Protectorate that reaches their overlord's TechnologyLevel is upgraded to "Vassal" status, instead of providing extra Influence their ship unit cap is partially diverted to their liege and the military they do have is obliged to participate in their wars.
** The third type of subject empire available to player empires, the Tributary, is the exception to this trope as overlords aren't obliged to defend tributaries. Though it's usually recommended to add an Independence Guarantee to reduce the opinion penalty of forcing someone to hand over a quarter of their income.
** The Guarantee Independence treaty is a lesser version that comes at the more powerful empire's expense with no benefit but building trust with the less powerful empire.
** [[{{Precursors}} Fallen Empires]] always attempt to subjugate the rest of the galaxy when they Awaken, but most of them won't bother to defend their subjects if attacked. The exception are Benevolent Interventionists and their "Signatories", though on the downside Signatories cannot start wars at all.

* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', the agreement between the six displaced kaiju and Equestria's leadership is the six will protect Equestria from rogue kaiju attacks while Mothra and Twilight Sparkle work out a way to send all the kaiju back to Terra. Because rogue kaiju would be keen to seek out high magic concentrations, the six are stationed in said spots. In particular Anguirus [[spoiler: and later a reformed Destroyah]] protect Ponyville, Rodan protects Cloudsdale and Appleloosa, and Godzilla Junior guards Canterlot and the diarchs. [[spoiler: Later on, after he [[GoodAllAlong drops the villain act]], Xenilla earnestly becomes the protector of the Crystal Empire and specifically the royal family, traveling with them wherever they go.]]

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'' the Yonko, the four most powerful pirates in the world, each lend their power and fearsome reputation to many different islands of the New World to discourage other pirates from attacking them. Some, like Whitebeard, do this out of the goodness of their hearts, others, like Big Mom, expect something in return. And woe to the island that fails to deliver on their end of the deal.

* In ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', Kobayashi is probably the single safest person on Earth, given that she has high ranking dragons from both factions that value her safety (primarily Tohru and Elma). This even gets played for laughs in ''Elma's OL Diary'' when Elma "protects" her during a mixer by preventing any of the guys from interacting with her directly.

** Played with regarding Kanna. Saikawa is very protective of her. Of course, being a dragon, there isn't really anything on Earth that could threaten her anyways (and even if there was, Saikawa wouldn't be much help).
