* StarWarsRebels explores this, where Jedi Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger have private matters pertaining to the Force, such as their trip to the cryptic Malachor or their confrontation with Force-sensitive Inquisitors away from their crew. This trope is implicitly acknowledged by Hera, a non-Force Sensitive, who sometimes wishes Kanan would allow her more involvement in Force matters.

* In ''LightNovel/KumoDesuGaNaniKa'' Shiraori understands that her and Ariel's actions have greatly damaged Blow's pride and that his duel with the Hero is both an attempt to restore it and ultimately doomed to failure. She chooses not to interfere as it would ruin his pride even further and she feels [[LivingIsMoreThanSurviving it's more important to have your pride than live without]].

* ''FanFic/SoulChess'': This is the main reason why Marianne allows Lelouch to face Aizen by himself in the FinalBattle -- she knows that the moment Lelouch chose to stand against Aizen as his personal rival and greatest enemy that he sealed his fate, and that even though she is his mother, she cannot shield him from it any longer.

* Happens sometimes in ''Manga/KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'', usually when a challenge fight is being fought, or when somebody desperately wants a rematch. Also interesting is the dynamics of helping and refusing help between Kenichi and Miu: Kenichi is very chivalrous and wants to [[DeclarationOfProtection become strong enough to protect Miu]], and sometimes even tries to interfere when she is about to start fighting, but Miu is more skillful fighter than Kenichi (''always'' beating him in sparring matches), and ''she'' is very willing to protect ''him'' when she thinks he is in danger. Kenichi, of course, often refuses such help from Miu, because "this is something a man must do himself".

** The Masters will often hang out on the sidelines and watch, even when Kenichi is in serious danger, because they believe that a good Master stays out of his Disciple's fights. They will only intervene if Kenichi has zero chance of escaping the situation on his own.

This is the logical extension of ItsPersonal, the cousin of LeaveHimToMe, and often stems from HonorBeforeReason. Also see IWorkAlone for denying help from the beginning. There's also LockedOutOfTheFight, where the hero ''does'' want help but circumstances contrive to prevent the helpers from helping. Compare ShooOutTheClowns. Contrast InTheEndYouAreOnYourOwn, where the helpers can't be of any help even if they wanted to. See also WhatYouAreInTheDark. Also contrast FigureItOutYourself, where the bystanders ''could'' help, but don't, even if you ask, as well as ICantDoThisByMyself.

* Season 3 premiere of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' had this for Twilight, who must retrieve the Crystal Heart to save the empire. Subverted in the end, as [[spoiler: Twilight got trapped and had to get Spike to finish the quest instead]].

Subverted in the end, as [[spoiler: Twilight got trapped and had to get Spike to finish the quest instead]]. She falls into this situation a few more times, such as retrieving her Element of Magic in an alternate universe or [[spoiler:taking on all the powers of the Princesses to take down Tirek]]. Ironically, the pony who told her to do this alone is the same pony who told her to learn the magic of Friendship.

* ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion'': Asuka often says Shinji that he can't fix her issues: the only person who can solve it is her. What he can do, though, is standing by her side and supporting her while she tries to fix herself.

A comic book released decades later pulled this trope as part of a ForWantOfANail idea. [[spoiler:Optimus handily kills Megatron.]]
