* Sparhawk, the Queen's Champion, spends the first two and a third books of the ''Literature/{{Elenium}}'' searching for what's needed to save Queen Ehlana from a fatal poisoning; she's being sustained by magic. The first thing she says, when she's finally able to speak to him, is that she knew he would come.



* In ''Webcomic/LsEmpire'' Timpani is confident that her husband will come rescue her after she was kidnapped by the Pixl Queen's army, saying that they have no idea how far he'd go for her (for those not in the know, [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario the last time she disappeared]] he went on a SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum when he couldn't find her.) Subverted since Indx didn't let him come along and demanded he get some therapy after having ''another'' SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum. Timpani is rescued, but it was [[spoiler: Daisy (who had also been kidnapped)]] that rescued her.

She Will Come For Me often indicates a character GenreSavvy enough to be sure the hero will show up JustInTime. She Won't Come For Me is a subtrope of NothingCanSaveUsNow in which the character despairs of rescue by a specific person (or small group of people), rather than despairing of being saved in general by [[DeusExMachina rocks falling from the sky]], [[CrazyEnoughToWork thinking up a daring escape plan]], and such. However, She Will Come / She Won't Come For Me are ''not'' subversions or inversions of each other; they are equal facets of the same trope.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'': Roxanne has been saved by Metro Man so many times she doesn't even feign concern when Megamind kidnaps her. She (and Megamind) is shocked when Metro Man appears to be killed by one of Megamind's {{Death Trap}}s. [[spoiler:He isn't.]]

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings': Pippin has been searching the battlefield for Merry following a fierce battle between the Gondorians and the Rohirrim on one side and Sauron's forces on the other. When he finally locates him amid the debris, Merry says, "I knew you'd find me." Possibly subverted when Merry then asks if he's going to leave him (as he's pretty badly injured). Pippin, of course, responds that he's going to look after him.

* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' Jerin Whistler has nearly thirty sisters, and [[spoiler: is married to five adult wives]]. When he is kidnapped, he is very certain that at the very least a couple of them will come to his rescue. His only angst is about being DefiledForever before this happens.

* As in the film, Buttercup in ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'' is very confident that Westley will come to stop her wedding.



* In the season three finale of ''Series/MissFishersMurderMysteries'' [[spoiler: the villain kidnaps Miss Fisher's father, planning to [[ForcedToWatch kill her in front of him]] when she comes to the rescue. This one is a sort of balance between the two variations: Baron Fisher says she won't come because he's always been a lousy father, but it seems like he's more ''hoping'' this is true and is worried that she might come for him after all. Naturally, Phryne and Jack pull off a BigDamnHeroes and rescue him in the nick of time without getting hurt themselves.]]

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', when [[spoiler:the Warden and Alistair are captured by Ser Cauthrien and taken to Fort Drakon]], you get the option to either break out yourself or wait for help--and you can specify which two party members (except for [[spoiler:Shale]]) come to break you out, even if they don't like each other... or ''you''.

** "Bounty": An example which involves the hero talking to another hero and not to the villain. While at Kelly's, Murdock keeps fiddling with the radio, trying to find the transmission the others will probably use to locate him. Kelly says that he should relax and that they'll find him, and Murdock replies that he knows.
** "Hot Styles": Face, having been captured by the antagonists of the week and waiting to be dumped into the ocean, tells fellow victim Rina that they just have to wait until Hannibal comes up with a plan. Sure enough, not that long thereafter, Hannibal and Murdock storm the boat to rescue the two of them.

Not only does the "hero" of the [[spoiler:Zurich]] subplot not come for [[spoiler:his girlfriend, who honestly believed he would]], it turns out that [[spoiler:he never intended to and instead purposefully sacrificed her to distract his enemies' attention long enough for him to take them out as he'd planned to all along.]]
