* WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack suffers from ChronicHeroSyndrome and will always stop to help anyone in need, even if it means sacrificing [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption yet another chance]] to achieve his ultimate goal of going back to the past and [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong preventing Aku from taking over the world]]. The worst part is that if he actually ''did'' go back to the past and defeat Aku, it's highly likely that in a future without Aku in charge, none of those people would have even needed Jack's help in the first place.

Of course, they're suffering ''right now'', while his defeating Aku is in the future; he trusts that, no matter how many chances he loses, at some point destiny will bring him back to the past.

* Comicbook/{{Shazam}}: Captain Marvel and the Marvel Family also exhibited this trope. After the character was bought by DC Comics and folded into the DCUniverse, he became a more extreme version of this to even Superman. The best way to sum it up is that unlike Captain Marvel, Superman had the added pressure of being the world's most famous and most beloved superhero. People looked up to him and always came to him for help, and thus he had more incentive to find a solution--''any'' solution. Captain Marvel, on the other hand, did what he felt was right no matter what, even if it meant risking complete failure.

* WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack has two main goals: [[TheresNoPlaceLikeHome return to]] [[FishOutOfTemporalWater his own era]], and defeat [[BigBad Aku]] ([[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong preferably in the past to prevent]] the BadFuture). However, while in said future, he will never ignore a call for help, and will ignore, decline or downright sabotage any possibilities for returning to his past (even if it OnlyWorksOnce) in order to save people.

* DC's [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] is most definitely this. He does his best to save as many people as he can, but doesn't impose his will on the world. He's seen the dangers of what happens when someone like Black Adam loses touch with their humanity and starts acting like a god. This was especially made evident in the animated WesternAnimation/SupermanShazamTheReturnOfBlackAdam . When Adam has a hostage, Cap is willing to turn back into his moral form if Adam will spare her life, knowing that doing so will mean his own death. Unfortunately, Adam tries to kill Billy and the hostage, but luckily Superman makes the save. Unluckily for Black Adam, [[BewareTheNiceOnes that also made Billy]]. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown It didn't end well for Adam]].
