* Subverted in ReBoot. One episode had the User send Mainframe a new file upgrade that is supposed to help the heros. When Bob takes the upgrade inside the Principal Office to install it, Megabyte pops out of it and seizes control of the core control chamber.

* In "Bottom", when Richie and Eddie are stranded at the top of a Big Wheel ( which will be demolished in the morning), they are rescued by the hand of god. At least, until [[spoiler: they admit they don't actually believe in god, and plummet to their deaths]]. They got better, though.

* Very much played with in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached''. The four are told that they received their considerable magic from the Fans and the C'hovite gods so that they'll be equipped to go on the Vasyn quest. However, this is not the true situation at all. John is first [[WingedHumanoid transformed]] because the Fans have to save his life, and Shag intends to change him back as soon as she can figure out how. Then Ringo independently crops up [[PsychicPowers psychic]], and the Fans realize they'd better make sure George and Paul get magic too, or things will be quite awkward amongst the four. It's only after the four are fully empowered that the C'hovite gods notice them and hire them (via the Fans) to go on the Vasyn quest.

* Crossing over with TakeUpMySword, Luke gets his lightsaber from [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] in ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'', a move straight out of TheHerosJourney. Though oddly, he never uses it until [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack the second movie]].

* Teddie of ''Videogame/{{Persona 4}}'' initially acts an AdventureRebuffer by sending the protagonists back to the real world because of the danger of the TV World. Later, he assists the protagonists by helping them navigate the TV world and giving them glasses that makes it possible to see.

* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' has power-ups given to all the Seishi by Taiitsukun. Arguably, the Shinzaho created by the Priestesses could also qualify.

* In ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', dragons grant magical powers right off, though it takes some instruction to use them properly. Over time, they also increase all the physical attributes of their rider. Ostensibly, anyway. The only people shown to be bonded with dragons are either very old, and thus have already gone through quite a bit of this, or get a Plot Relevant Upgrade fairly early on. Also, provided both partners aren't killed they'll live more-or-less forever. Technically AgeWithoutYouth, but with enough power, one can look as old or young as they wish.
* Galadriel gives the Fellowship parting gifts as they leave Lothlórien in ''[[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings The Fellowship Of The Ring]]'', most notably the lembas bread and the light of Eärendil.
* [[SantaClaus Father Christmas]] visits the four Pevensie children in ''[[{{Narnia}} The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe]]'', bearing a sword and shield for Peter, a bow for Susan, and a vial of healing potion for Lucy. (Edmund didn't get anything, because he wasn't there at the time ... though this was his own fault.)
