* The Cavalry is generally a very happy concept. See the movie version of ''TheMist'' for an example where it really, really isn't. (In the original novella [[spoiler: they never show up at all.]] Which, arguably, makes the ending of the novella happier. Or at least less [[DeusAngstMachina fucking depressing]].

*** Then there was the time Colonel Makepeace lead four SG teams to rescue [=SG-1=] from Hathor. It did not go so smoothly and they had to be rescued by MORE calvary, this time in the form of some rebel Jaffa, with air support provided by Bra'tac and General Hammond in a needle threader.



* In the finale of [[SpartacusBloodAndSand Spartacus: War of the Damned]], [[spoiler:Agron and Nasir arrive just in time to save Spartacus's life. Well, almost; he's already fatally wounded, but they prevent Crassus from delivering the coup de grace, and ensure he dies free.]]

* Early on in [[http://kleinerkiller.deviantart.com/gallery/41037509 Yognapped]], Simon and Lewis are rescued from a [[ZergRush mob spawning]] by a squadron of [[GasMaskMooks Peons]] with vastly superior weaponry.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Chief Bogo and the rest of the force, in the museum scene. In this case, though, it is the ''villain'' who called them, expecting [[spoiler:a feral Nick]] to kill Judy in the meantime. Instead, [[spoiler:Nick was faking being feral, and the villain's whole gloat was CaughtOnTape]].

* DoubleSubverted in part III ''Fanfic/AVoiceInTheWilderness''. Starfleet and the Klingon Empire both respond to USS ''Bajor'''s distress signal after her warp drive is disabled by the Borg, but everyone knows they're too far away to rescue the ship before the Borg return.

* In [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], during the Battle of the Everfree Plains, when it seems as though Celestia's forces were caught in an impossible situation, the [[BigDamnHeroes pegasi reinforcements from the west]] finally arrive and help them out, as a form of apology for their previous inaction.
