She then kills a group of men that was also sent after him. When he expresses his gratitude, she reminds him that she is still going to kill him — she only saved him because if the other group killed him, she wouldn't be able to fulfill her mission.

* Literature/TheIliad - In an early occurrence of the trope, Achilles orders the other Myrmidons not to attack Hector, so that he alone may have the satisfaction of killing his foe and avenging Patroclus. This is jarringly inverted in Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida in which Achilles does the opposite: actively ordering his men to slaughter Hector for him.
* Literature/HarryPotter - A prophecy made before Harry was born foretold his rivalry with Voldemort, and that one of them will end up killing the other. The exact terms could have referred to someone else ([[spoiler:Neville]]) born the same month, but Voldemort chose to go after Harry first - and created a SelfFulfillingProphecy thanks to Lily's sacrifice. Years later, Voldemort remains obsessed with killing Harry personally.
** Subverted when Harry returns to Hogwarts in ''Deathly Hallows'' when he invokes something like this - Neville points out that while Harry was off chasing Horcruxes, he'd been fairly effectively leading the resistance in his absence and Luna points out that she'd worked out how to find the penultimate Horcrux before Harry (or even Hermione) had.

* In ''VideoGame/StarFox'', TheRival Wolf acts this way towards Fox. The games thus far have never really provided a reason for this though, and the more recent games used it more as an excuse for EnemyMine situations (involving Wolf saving Fox so that he can "tan his hide" after the big threat has been dealt with). They still clash in every game for no real reason other than this, of course. Maybe he's just a sore loser.
