* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', when Ling is carrying the seriously wounded Lan Fan away from the homunculi, she says that she's just being a burden on him and that he'll be able to escape if he leaves her behind. When he tells her to stop talking like that, she takes out her knife and points it at herself...and then we change scenes. When it cuts back later in the episode, we discover that [[spoiler:she actually cut her own arm off and tied it to a dog as bait to draw the homunculus away]]. Still rather disturbing, but better than the alternative.

* Played with in ''SuperFuzz'' (1980). After developing his super powers, Speed and his partner respond to a situation on the [=23rd=] floor of a building. During the scuffle, Speed gets thrown out of the window. There's a window washing platform a couple of floors down, but Speed misses it. Instead, he uses his powers to safely land on the sidewalk. When he rejoins the fight, his partner looks out of the window, sees the platform, and assumes this trope got played. * Literature/LordOfTheRings: Frodo starts climbing down a cliff face when the cry of a Nazgul causes him to freeze and fall. A fortunately-placed ledge catches him.

As they plunge into the canyon to their deaths, they're caught in mid-air by the giant robot they'd been fleeing earlier. So yes, their lives have been saved...[[FateWorseThanDeath for the short term]].
