* ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'': Comic #260: "The Captive Princess" shows [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros Princess Peach]] successfully managing to escape from Bowser's castle on her own. Ultimately subverted, however, when she overhears Mario yelling that he's come to save the Princess, goes to investigate, and then accepts Mario's rescue, despite the fact that she had just escaped on her own.

* Early in ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'', Ryu and Nina are travelling a steep cliff. Nina falls, and Ryu immediately jumps to her aid, descending like a pro from several landings until one mid-jump where he realizes Nina is ''flying'' (she has wings); the shock was apparently too much for him that Ryu {{Face Fault}}s the rest of the way to the ground. When Nina joins Ryu shortly afterward, she quickly apologizes for not telling him about her wings.

* In ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'', this trope shows up in the [[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers Grovyle]] Connection Orb mission. Your objective is to rescue a shiny Celebi in a dungeon. Upon encountering her, Grovyle points out Celebi is strong enough to not be troubled by such a dungeon, making a rescue mission unnecessary. Celebi actually ''pretended'' to be in trouble so that Grovyle would rescue her and cause RescueRomance, but [[ChasteHero it completely flew over Grovyle's head]].
