* Right at the end of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi Kai'', after escaping Hinamizawa to report the betrayal of [[spoiler:Takano]] (the telephone lines had been cut within the village and there weren't cell phones back when the story takes place, so they had to actually leave the village to report this), Tomitake and Akasaka decide to return to Hinamizawa to continue fighting despite the deployment of Banken (an elite combat force that will hopefully save the day) and the danger to themselves.

* At the end of ''Machinima/Redvsblue'' S9, [[spoiler: Epsilon-Church says this after being pulled out of the Epsilon unit.

[[folder:Western Animation]] * In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Cyborg at one point becomes trapped in the distant past. While in the past, he befriends the people of a barbarian tribe, who have been fighting off invading monsters. Then, during the final battle to defend the tribe and destroy the monsters once and for all, the other Titans manage to use magic to forcibly retrieve him from the past. His words as he arrives? "Send me back!" Unusual in that Cyborg does not actually return to the past, as (a) he has no way to get there, and (b) he finds out from a history book that the tribes won without him anyway.
