* About half the time on ''Series/PersonOfInterest'', the titular person is someone who is ''going'' to be the victim of a violent crime and the protagonists have to intervene before that happens (the rest of the time, the person is someone who's going to ''commit'' a crime and they need to figure out who the victim is).

* Being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, ''Manga/MutekiKanbanMusume'' subverts this trope because the various non-fatal victims of the week that we met at the series are regulars in her DebutQueue (they will not solve their problems) or people who will solve their problems themselves, [[StopHelpingMe despite the help the protagonist gives]].

Common in series that use MonsterOfTheWeek or MysteryOfTheWeek. In more supernatural shows, having a victim of the week is also a very good way to showcase the special powers or other abilities of this week's monster or villain that the hero must overcome in order to save the day.
