* The 1978 ''Film/MessageFromSpace'', made in Japan, also uses this trope. The Gavanas have conquered the planet Jillucia, whose natives have performed a ritual to send magic seeds into the universe to find heroes. The Jillucian leader then sends out his granddaughter Emeralida and her bodyguard Urocco to find the "Liabe heroes" that the seeds have chosen, and bring them back to defend the Jillucians and defeat the Gavanas.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomOMagic'': The first quest, "The Magnificent Seven-Eleven Quest", is a straight-up parody of this, as you have to recruit a group of heroes to defend one of the towns from a barbarian horde. Once you do, the horde turns and leaves as soon as they see your heroes, but the town still gets destroyed... by your heroes, in the drunken post-victory celebrations.

*''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' is a less serious take on this trope, borrowing heavily from ''Film/ThreeAmigos'', as well.

* ''ComicBook/MarvelStarWars'' (the original ''Franchise/StarWars'' comic book), where immediately after they finished with the movie, the plot moves on to Han and Chewie leading six other fighters (including wanna-be Jedi [[MeaningfulName Don Wan Kihotay]] and green carnivorous rabbit-man Jaxxom) in defense of a small village. And then Godzilla shows up. . . . .

* Most of the episodes of ''Series/TheATeam'' involve a peaceful, non-violent person, small business or community being menaced by violent thugs of one flavor or another. Since local law enforcement is powerless, useless, non-existent or corrupt, the victim of the week must hire a team of four of the greatest badasses to ever serve in the U.S. Army's special forces.
