* Several of the Righteous Gentiles from WorldWarII obtained that status, not by great and exciting deeds but by taking in Jews and providing the necessities that were difficult or impossible for them to obtain. A long, terrible, and boring job done at tremendous peril.

* Lisa Garland, the nurse who [[spoiler:who took care of Alessa]] in ''{{Silent Hill 1}}''. In exchange for her care, she was granted a degree of protection from the horrors of the DarkWorld of Silent Hill, which she couldn't leave [[spoiler: because Kaufman had killed her, trapping her there. Fan theories speculate Alessa cared for Lisa, and was using her to manipulate Harry into ceasing his search for Cheryl. In the end, she reverts to a blood covered monster when Harry rejects her and she realizes what she is. She does get a comeuppance by killing Kaufman in the Good + ending, though.]]

* Mrs. Medlock in ''Film/{{The Secret Garden|1993}}''. She watched over the young lord's "ill" son Colin assiduously, and scolded Mary for being reckless when she worsened his condition. Mrs. Medlock goes so far as to lock Mary in her bedroom and force Colin to take baths in freezing water, while he screams that he's fine. When it turns out it was years of overprotective care that left Colin unable to walk, which Mary cured, Medlock was reduced to [[HeroicBSOD a near friendless crying heap]].

** In the novel itself, Mrs. Medlock and the rest of the staff only kept Colin isolated and overprotected because their orders for caring for the kid were "Don't let him get worked up and give him what he wants." They initially worry about Mary's visits on the grounds that Colin tends to throw fits when guests come in, but are fine with his later requests to be taken outside and the like. In the 1993 film adaptation however, Mrs. Medlock goes so far as to lock Mary in her bedroom and force Colin to take baths in freezing water, while he screams that he's fine. [[spoiler:She's later yelled at by Colin's father, for not being able to better handle the situation.]]

* In ''DeptHeavenApocrypha'', it fell to Milanor to slowly and painstakingly nurse Nessiah back to health after the latter's mind finally shattered. By now Nessiah has ''mostly'' snapped out of the [[EmptyShell catatonic state]] he was originally in, but is still fairly dependent on Milanor as of chapter 10. They're lovers, and Milanor [[TheAtoner felt kind of responsible for Nessiah's state]], so Nessiah's helplessness wasn't quite as awkward as it could have been, but...
