* In ''Anime/NarutoShippuden'', during the Sasuke and Sai arc, Team Yamato storms [[EvilOverlord Orochimaru's]] underground hide-out to rescue Sasuke, [[TearJerker but it fails.]] Sasuke himself does this later with his own QuirkyMinibossSquad, storming the Five Kage Summit. He nearly dies -- five times. In order: Jugo and Suigetsu have to save his ass from Darui's Genjutsu blitz; [[EnsembleDarkHorse Gaara]] saves him when he's about to be decapitated (or at least have his chest compressed) by [[MemeticBadass A]], the Raikage; then Zetsu saves him when he's nearly melted by [[SuperPowerLottery Mei Terumi]], the Mizukage; finally, Tobi saves him right as he's about to be atomized by [[BadassGrandpa Onoki]], the Tsuchikage. [[HumiliationConga It was all so satisfying when he was kicked off his high horse.]]

* In ''Series/BurnNotice'', this happens about every other episode. Sometimes it happens near the beginning of the episode, because Michael needs to get the bad guy's attention in a major way. Sometimes it happens at the end of the episode, especially when Michael needs to rescue Fi or Sam. Either way, it always works, because Michael Weston [[BadAss is the man.]]
