* {{Subverted}} on ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''--[[SadClown Amethyst]] is convinced that she has to be the one to defeat [[TheBrute Jasper]], because Jasper [[BornWinner has always been the perfect warrior]] while Amethyst has her species' equivalent to a birth defect. [[TheHeart Steven]] snaps her out of it, and instead they fight her with ThePowerOfFriendship.

* {{Subverted}} on ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''--[[SadClown Amethyst]] is convinced that she has to be the one to defeat [[TheBrute Jasper]], because Jasper [[BornWinner has always been the perfect warrior]] while Amethyst has her species' equivalent to a birth defect. However, [[CurbStompBattle Jasper really IS far stronger than Amethyst]]. Eventually, [[TheHeart Steven]] snaps her out of it, this, and instead they fight her with ThePowerOfFriendship. ThePowerOfFriendship [[spoiler:by fusing]].
-->'''Steven:''' Stop trying to be like Jasper! You're nothing like Jasper! ''You're like ME,'' because we're both not like anybody! And yeah, it sucks. But I least I've got you, and you've got me. So stop leaving me out of this.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats1985'', [[TheLeader Lion-O]] accepts a caveman's challenge to arm wrestle over the time capsule that they had been searching for. The others arrive midway through, but Lion-O tells [[CowardlyLion Snarf]] that as the one who accepted the challenge, he's going to do it without their help. [[TheBigGuy Panthro]] stops [[TheLancer Tygra]] from intervening moments later for the same reason.

** At the conclusion of the "War World" two-parter, Draaga insists on [[LeaveHimToMe fighting Mongul himself]]. (And he has good reason to, as Mongul is a despot who's rule depends on BreadAndCircuses, who was blackmailing Draaga into compliance for years). The heroes step aside and let him do so, simply telling him to watch Mongul's left hook.

* This appears in the ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}'' cardgame by Steve Jackson Games in the form of the "Gazebo" card -- which bears the text, "None can help you fight the gazebo. You must fight the gazebo alone." A reference, naturally, to ''[[http://www.netfunny.com/rhf/jokes/98/Jul/gazebo.html Eric and the Dread Gazebo]]''.

* Hilariously subverted in ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria''. The first time Eizen and Zaveid square off, they both yell at Velvet and her party to stay out of it. Velvet just says no and [[MeleeATrois beats them both up]] to get everyone back on task.
** Also played with in regards to Shigure. In the final battle, [[spoiler:after Shigure reveals [[IAmNotLeftHanded he'd been holding back in the past]], Velvet informs Rokurou in no uncertain terms the rest of the party will be fighting with him. Neither brother objects, but once they've slowed Shigure down enough for it to be a fair clash, the rest back off so Rokurou and Shigure can duel to the final strike.]]

* Hilariously averted and actually even inverted in ''StrikeTheBlood'', as whenever the normally-mellow Kojou is finally angry enough to finally go all-out in the final showdown with the villain-of-the-week, his sidekick/minder/leading lady Yukina always manages without fail to interrupt his solo attack (usually a punch) by destroying its momentum as she suddenly stops his forward movement dead in its tracks just as he's about to advance at last: first by blocking his path through the thrusting and twirling of her spear and then by jumping right in front of him and between the villains '''each and every single time'''. It's already become the series' own infamous catchphrase and original ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9fJswUgnGc meme]]'' in the fandom:

** This is even lampshaded and played with in the series itself when Kojou finally wises up in later chapters (on occassion) as he slyly says "OUR fight" instead of "MY fight", pre-empting a gung-ho Yukina, who always finds herself shocked at being caught off-guard and thus momentarily leaving her at a loss for words. Kojou is naturally most amused at this.
