* Happens a few times in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' with Ichigo; he sets out repeatedly to fight alone, and most of the final battles are just him and the BigBad. But his friends and TheObiWan Urahara refuse to actually let him set off for battle alone.

** In fact Luke is capable of killing Jacen but recognizes he would be doing it out of revenge over [[spoiler: Jacen killing Mara]] not justice and it would inevitably drive him to the dark side making things worse in the long run.

* Inverted in ''MahouSenseiNegima'', where Negi initially tried to do everything himself, only to get bailed out by his stronger allies. Although his TrainingFromHell is getting him the point where this won't be the case any more.

* Happens sometimes in ''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".

* 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 ''TheBelgariad'' the duel between Belgarath and Ctuchik is a one on one fight - not because Belgarath's companions don't want to help but any additional sorcerous power added to the situation would obliterate them both.

* [[CatGirl Buki]] of ''Sudeki'' takes on a giant spider boss monster by herself because "Like me, he is a Shadani Warrior" (this was actually a game design decision -- bosses simply worked better against lone characters)

* In the ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "I Am The Night", Batman [[TenMinuteRetirement withdraws into the Batcave]] after he arrives too late to keep Jim Gordon from being shot. Dick tries to snap him out of it, and then suits up to go and protect Gordon from the assailant (who broke out of prison and is likely to come back to finish the job). ''That'' brings Batman back to himself:

* In RWBY, right before Jaune's fight with the Ursa Major begins, Pyrrha arrives with help but tells everyone to stand back instead and let him deal with the Grimm on his own. Subverted in that she ends up stealthily using her Semblence to move Jaune's shield just enough to block a slash from the beast.

* In RWBY, right before Jaune's fight with the Ursa Major begins, Pyrrha arrives with help but tells everyone to stand back instead and let him deal with the Grimm on his own. Subverted in that she ends up stealthily using her Semblence to move Jaune's shield just enough to block a slash from the beast. In the second season's finale Jaune (who's now had months of training) again confronts an Ursa Major, as Pyrrha watches from the background. This time she doesn't help him and while Jaune is nervous, he defeats it with no trouble as she smiles at his growth.
