* Granted their RelationshipUpgrade doesn't happen for another four books, but it should be noted that the first major interaction Literature/HarryPotter has with [[spoiler:Ginny Weasley]] is to basically spend an entire book working rescuing her from [[spoiler:the BigBad and his giant snake]].

* Parodied in one episode of ''DailyLivesOfHighSchoolBoys": the student council of the boys' school is talking with the girls' school's student council president, trying to get her to do them a favor. A man comes by and mistakes their conversation for thugs trying to hit on an unwilling girl, and tries to pull a classic Rescue Romance. Noticing this and deciding to "help", the guys immediately start pretending to be thugs and then deliberately fall easily. Sadly, the girl president is a moron and thinks that they want her to punch the guy out afterward.

** One of Ichigo's strongest motivations is to protect his loved ones, and two of these persons are girls not related to him: Rukia, the ActionGirl who gave him his powers at first, and Orihime, his BarrierWarrior friend. Each girl gets abducted for different reasons, and each time Ichigo pulls a RoaringRampageOfRescue for her. [[spoiler: The one he marries is Orihime. Though Rukia's eventual VictoriousChildhoodFriend Renji was also involved in Rukia's rescue towards the end, with Ichigo even lampshading the trope.]]

* Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye spend the entirety of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' saving ''each other''. In chronological order, she gunned down an Ishvalan who was about to stab him during the war, and saved him from Scar by ''tripping him'' (ItMakesSenseInContext), then he risked blowing their cover to [[spoiler: save her from Gluttony, and later rescued both her and Al from Lust when she was in the middle of a [[HeroicBSOD suicidal breakdown]], believing him dead]]. In later chapters, he went [[spoiler:completely AxCrazy againt Envy, when he/she/it admitted to killing Hughes. He only snapped out of it when she assured him she would keep her promise of shooting him if he ever became corrupted, but she would kill herself afterwards]]. And just when they got all that cleared up, they found themselves in a situation where [[spoiler:she was dying from a jugular wound...and he ''couldn't save her.'' Luckily, someone who could showed up; the emotional scene which followed is easily one of the single most romantic things in the entire series.]] This trope is played with in this case, since they went that way simply because they love each other, even before they enter military.

* In the sequel to ''Literature/DaddyLongLegs'', ''My Dear Enemy'', this is twisted on its head when [[spoiler: Sallie [=McBride=] and Dr. Robin [=McRae=]'s BelligerentSexualTension starts "properly" turning into love when Sallie ''witnesses Robin saving other people''. First, he brings an alcoholic teenager back from the brink of death with Sallie's help, and she almost has a LoveEpiphany; later, he almost dies rescuing a little girl from a HollywoodFire and she realizes where her feelings lie.]]



** Also, for such a [[TheSoCalledCoward so called coward]], Yarne can score this with Nah as well. Lon'qu can have this with Lissa after saving her from an assassin, and a variation with Miriel after he keeps her from falling to her death while she's completely absorbed in her studies.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' doesn't lack examples, either. [[WhiteMage Azama]] can potentially have this with two women: [[BodyguardCrush his lady-of-liege]] [[TomboyPrincess Princess Hinoka]] (whom he found badly injured in the mountains and nursed back to health, which is why he serves under her in the first place) and [[spoiler: [[GlacierWaif Effie]]]] in the third path (theirs is a mutual rescue, since they met when she shielded him from an enemy attack, and [[AfterActionPatchUp he healed her injuries]] at least three times.)
*** [[MysteriousWaif Princess Azura's]] romantic supports often invoke the trope... but in several of them, ''[[BadassPrincess she]]'' is the one to the rescue. On one hand she helps Hinata to get away from a Nohrian spy that had tricked him before, [[FromDressToDressing patches up Saizo's wounds]] when he gets hurt helping her, exorcises a demon that was about to attack Silas, and (solely in the ''Birthright'' path) she [[spoiler: helps Takumi to get free from a MoreThanMindControl spell]]; on the other, Subaki protects her from hitmen and [[spoiler:Arthur]] once rescued her from guards years ago. She also has a mutual rescue with the Male Avatar on ''Conquest''; he saves her from soldiers that had captured and were going to execute her, and she later repays the favor by protecting him from assassins in their support chain.
