* ''StarTrekDiscovery'': Near the end of "The Battle at the Binary Suns", Burnham is beamed back aboard ''Shenzhou'' against her will [[spoiler: when she was trying to reach Captain Georgiou, who had just been killed. Although she doesn't ask to go back (it's clear Saru, who beamed her off to begin with, won't send her back), the normally {{Stoic}} officer collapses on the transporter in a fit of InelegantBlubbering over [[SurvivorsGuilt being unable to save her captain.]]]]

* ''WesternAnimation/DungeonsAndDragons'': The Young Ones have found portals back to their home realm, but [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption have had to give up their chance at escape]] because it would involve leaving one or more of them behind, letting Venger get away with his scheme of the day, and sometimes both. The unaired finale [[spoiler: left it open, ending with giving them the choice of going home or continue to adventure in The Realm.]]

* 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. He had figured out the secret that let him escape the cycle, but then was dragged into the fight again.]] This is also a terribly sad moment: [[spoiler: Church is terribly abused by Tex, especially in her flailing failure to accomplish anything, and only achieves inner peace when he gets rid of her, by forgetting her.]]

[[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.
