** [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Jack Sparrow]] does this as well in ''Kingdom Hearts II'', when he frees the party [[MyFriendsAndZoiberg and Elizabeth]] from being tied up after a TeamRocketWins moment for Pete, and rejoins the party ([[RequiredPartyMember as a mandatory character]]).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/SpyroYearOfTheDragon'', each world has one such character; rebels against [[BigBad the Sorceress]]' cause, who [[TheQuisling Moneybags]] has locked up. Spyro has to [[CashGate stump up]] every time in order to have Moneybags release them, and each of them will ally themselves with Spyro [[AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent as playable characters]] when this is done ([[VeryPunchableMan after they've taken their revenge on Moneybags, of course]]).

* MiniNinjas used this; part of the game's backstory is that the Ninja Master sent out each of his more experienced ninjas one by one to defeat the Evil Samurai Lord, until only two were left. With those two, you have to rescue the others on the way to finish their job.

It's that [[ExtyYearsFromNow time of the millennium]] [[ViciousCycle again]], where the EvilOverlord comes out of his [[SealedEvilInACan can]] and starts wreaking havoc. [[AngstWhatAngst No worries]], we gave TheHero a [[CallToAdventure call]], and he's [[JumpedAtTheCall jumping]] to it. Now he just needs a {{team}}, but there's a problem. Some (or, in extreme cases, ALL) potential allies are:

* This trope in a nutshell is how the Heroes' League got formed in the backstory of ''WebComic/WhiteDarkLife''. Author!Luigifan has not released all of the details ([[ScheduleSlip more due to laziness and constantly finding other things to do than anything else]]), but the gist of it is: Bowser came up with a plan to eradicate the Mario Bros. by [[VillainTeamUp joining forces with several other villains]] to crush all the heroes who would dare oppose them. Mario, Luigi, and Luigifan set out to counter this plan by chasing after the growing LegionOfDoom and joining forces with said heroes, usually arriving JustInTime to prevent Bowser's planned slaughter. When all was said and done, Mario, Sonic, Pipsy, Kirby, Bomberman, and all of their friends were heading up a HeroesRUs organization.
