*** [[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, (solely in the ''Birthright'' path) she [[spoiler: helps Takumi to get free from a MoreThanMindControl spell]] and (sdolely on ther GoldenPath) [[spoiler: stops Ryoma and Xander from what's about to be a DuelToTheDeath]]; 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.

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'' and ''specially'' its remake, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', Gray joins the mission to rescue Clair in hopes to help save her and score this with her (or at least, RescueSex). If both of them live to the end, they get married.

* PlayedWith in ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'': if you choose to use your blood to save Heather Poe, the young woman you meet as she's bleeding to death in the Santa Monica clinic near the start of the game, she'll eventually move in with you and become your Ghoul. However, it's never entirely possible to say how far this is due to her genuine gratitude and attraction towards the player, and how far it is a result of the Blood Bond controlling her actions.

** Naruto and Rock Lee believed in this with Sakura in Part I, but [[SingleTargetSexuality she only had eyes for Sasuke]]...who tries to kill her twice, later leading to Naruto having to save her again, although [[ShipSinking Naruto no longer had any romantic feelings for her at that point]].

** Speaking of ''The Last'', Naruto and Hinata do play this straight in the movie. Now adults, Naruto again saves her, this time from [[BigBad Toneri]], and after the FinalBattle, [[spoiler: they finally become an OfficialCouple]]. It also serves as a CallBack and MeaningfulEcho to the story of how Naruto's parents fell in love (see below).

** {{Double Subverted|Trope}} when [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Hinata]] jumps in to try to save Naruto from [[TheDragon Pain]]. She tells Naruto that she can't stay back while he's in danger [[AnguishedDeclarationOfLove because she loves him]], then attacks Pain - who simply smacks her down, stabs her, and insinuates to Naruto that she's dead. [[BerserkButton Naruto promptly]] [[UnstoppableRage loses it]] [[DespairEventHorizon worse than]] [[DarkestHour he ever has before]]. The anime turns it into a MeaningfulEcho with both characters in the opposite positions when they were younger, against bullies (the manga and ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' later canonized the flashback).

** Also spoofed in [[{{Filler}} Episode 101]] of the original anime. In a flashback Kakashi easily defeats the pathetic Moya Triad who had been pestering a random woman, and afterwards she's completely smitten with Kakashi. [[spoiler: Rin also loved Kakashi before and after he saved he rescued her, even jumping in front of his attack so the tailed beast inside her couldn't be unleashed- was [[TearJerker her idea]] of a "rescue"]].

** Played straight with [[spoiler: Naruto's parents, Minato and Kushina.]] She fell in love with him when he saved her from the Kumo ninjas that kidnapped her when she was a kid, then complimented [[HeroesWantRedheads her red hair]], which other children used as a reason to bully her.

* ''[[TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial 1]]'', very surprisingly, has a case of this, but it's a really bizarre one: if you repeatedly phone to [[spoiler:Rei Ijuin, the game's {{Bifauxnen}}]], it will activate various events revolving around [[spoiler:her]], and in one of them, [[spoiler:she]]'ll be kidnapped. You can decide to go to [[spoiler:her]] rescue (and is required if you want to get [[spoiler:her]] Ending), [[spoiler:but in a subversion, when you'll arrive to the supposed place where's she captive, the Ijuin Family Army will already have saved her. As usual, she'll give the protagonist some badmouthing for his stupid recklessness, but will still thank him, and apparently starts to like him from this point]]. Oh, did I forgot to mention that the protagonist, at this point, doesn't know that [[spoiler:she's actually a girl, and won't discover this until the end of the game, when she'll confess to him on Graduation Day under the Legendary Tree]]?

* In the Creator/StudioGhibli version of ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'', Howl and Sophie meet when two soldiers hit on Sophie. Howl uses his magic to send them away. It gets better when Howl takes to the air in order to save both of them from the blob-men of the Witch of the Waste.
** ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'' with Patsu and Sheeta and ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' with Ashitaka and San follow this too. ''Anime/NausicaäofTheValleryOfTheWind'' slight subversion as Nausicaä is the one who saves Asbel, causing him to fall in love with her.
