* A somewhat extreme example is Alexander Matrosov, a Red Army soldier during CrowningMoment/WorldWarTwo. During an assault on Chernushki village, the Soviets were held off by a German [[CoolGun MG 42]] (which is the [[MoreDakka fastest firing]] single barreled machine gun in history) firing from a pill-box. Matrosov threw himself in front of the massive amount of dakka, blocking the fire and allowing his unit to advance. He was posthumously awarded Hero of the Soviet Union, the highest honour that can be bestowed by the USSR.\\\

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fanfic ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', Kara shields both Hippolyta and Fury from a heat beam barrage. The pain is unbearable even for Power Girl, but she stands her ground and takes it.
-->The three women surged forward again, wearing grim battle-faces that might have been those of Greeks in the Trojan War.\\
Before they had covered half the distance, all three felt the pain of searing heat along their bodies.\\
Power Girl halted, grabbed her two allies, and tossed them to the ground. Then she spread her body over the both of them and stretched her cape to its full extent, shielding them as best she could. "Stay down, you two," she warned.\\
"We've gotta fight ‘em!" wailed Fury.\\
"They'd... broil you like a hot dog," grated Kara. "Stay down, and I mean it!"\\
The three outlaws of Krypton were standing in a circle about Power Girl, sending six beams of heat from their eyes at her caped back. One Kryptonian could cause pain. Two could injure. Three could destroy.\\
But Hippolyta and Fury lacked the Kryptonian durability to withstand heat vision for a time. Without her protection, both women would soon burn to death.\\
Kara bit her lip to keep from screaming. The terrible beams seared her back like a grid of white-hot iron. That, despite her protective cape. There was only so much longer she could take it.\\
Her brain rushed to formulate an escape stratagem before the three of them could die.\\
But all she could really come up with right then was to lie there and take it.
