* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', several of your companions are recruited in this manner:
** Nick Valentine is recruited this way, having been captured by Skinny Malone and his gang and taken to the vacant Vault 114.
** Strong is recruited when the Sole Survivor rescues him and Rex Goodman from his Super Mutant brethren.
** Preston Garvey is a technical example, as he is the only Minuteman remaining to protect a group of settlers from a band of marauding Raiders. He doesn't officially join you until you officially join the Minutemen, however.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': This is [[MagneticHero Luffy's]] recruitment MO. Pretty much every member of his crew got a StoryArc dedicated to [[LotaltyMission solving some problem of theirs]] that prevented them from committing fully to Luffy's quest to find [[MacGuffinTitle the titular One Piece]].

** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has about half the party members recruited this way. Of the group, one needs to be gotten out of prison, another has to be unfrozen, a third is missing his wife, and a fourth is stuck in a tower full of possessed mages and won't leave until it's been reclaimed. There's also a poisoned war dog who needs an antidote.

* Pretty much everyone you recruit into your group in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' has to be rescued from the TV world and their Shadow taken down so that they can gain a Persona to join you in the hunt for the killer who's been throwing people into the TV world. With the exceptions of your two starting party members, all of them were thrown into the TV world by the killer. The only playable character who does not have to face his or her Shadow is the protagonist, and that's because [[spoiler:Izanami gave him the power to manifest Personas]].
