* In ''Anime/MoribitoGuardianOfTheSpirit,'' this is both the main plot and back story: when the Second Queen of Yogo suspects that her husband is trying to kill their son [[WiseBeyondTheirYears Chagum]], she tasks [[LadyOfWar Balsa]], a warrior-woman who happened to stop the most recent assassination attempt, to run away with him and keep him safe. As the series progresses, we learn that Balsa herself was once the "kid" in this trope, being taken in by a warrior named [[PapaWolf Jigoro]] on her dying father's request. A WholeEpisodeFlashback later fills in the details.

* As revealed in a flashback, this was the dying request of Roy's alchemy teacher in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist.'' Granted, "take care of my daughter" ''probably'' didn't mean "make her your personal assistant and bodyguard," but hey, the woman is damn good at what she does.

* In Creator/VCAndrews' ''Midnight Whispers,'' Dawn apparently shouted this to her brother Philip before she burned to death with her husband. He does take Christie and her brother in, but...[[AbusiveParents it]] [[RapeAsDrama doesn't]] [[TheUnfavorite go]] [[IncestIsRelative over]] well.
