* Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''. While the title character and his monkey Abu are exploring the caves full of treasure, Aladdin tells Abu to "wait here" while he goes to get the lamp. As you'd expect, Abu sees a huge gem and goes to grab it, ignoring the warning they received to "[[ForbiddenFruit touch nothing but the lamp]]" and setting off a lava flow apocalypse.
* ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' has the titular character's mother telling him to wait while she checks the meadow to make sure its safe.

* At every crime scene early in the series, Detective Beckett orders Series/{{Castle}} to wait in the car... and he ''never fails'' to get mixed up in the final confrontation of the perp. Subverted in "Home is Where the Heart Stops," when he actually ''does'' wait in the car... and the perp lands on his windshield and drags him out anyway.

* In ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'', at Weathertop Aragorn says he's going to have a look around and for the hobbits to “stay here.” They do. Unfortunately, three of the four decide to pass the time while he's gone by ''[[TooDumbToLive lighting a highly visible fire]]'', thus attracting the attention of the Ringwraiths anyway.
* In ''Film/OceansEleven'', when part of the crew goes to [[spoiler: steal the “pinch”]], George Clooney expressly tells Matt Damon to wait in the van. He can't take the bickering of the two brothers and leaves, which leads to... complications.

The second time, he actually does stay behind, [[spoiler:which allows him to initiate the NoOneGetsLeftBehind, as Papa had made them all promise not to go back for him — but Clumsy, who wasn't there at the time, never promised anything.]]

* This ends up actually working in ''Literature/TheGirlIn6E''. The title character asks the DamselInDistress to wait for her — at a shack in the middle of nowhere and the dead of night — while she goes to confront the antagonist, and to call 911 if she doesn't return in 15 minutes. You'd expect that she'll either get in over her head and be incapacitated, leaving her Damsel at the mercy of the antagonist, or that something or other will happen to the Damsel before she gets back. But while things don't go quite as smoothly as she'd hoped, she returns unharmed in all of 10 minutes, the Damsel is still where she left her, and everything proceeds swimmingly from there.

-->'''Paradine:''' Now you stay here. If you hear a shot, you get back to the lieutenant at a fast gallop… If you haven't heard from me in 15 minutes, you get back there anyway.
* Dawn in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' often fell into this. (“Dawn's in trouble; [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall must be Tuesday]]...”) Although to be fair, Xander had this happen to him occasionally (at least twice a season.)
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' As shown on the quotes page, the Doctor has been facing this problem for forty years. RuleNumberOne is "Don't wander off" yet the companions always do.

* Jade in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' lives and breathes this trope. Jackie will say “Stay here,” “Don't play with the CosmicKeystone,” “Don't try and fight the ancient evil dragon spirit.” And what does she do? The above. It's gotten to the point Jackie should carry chloroform and rope wherever he goes just to subdue her. Or accept she's his {{Sidekick}}, train her, and let her be annoying/helpful like a more competent [[TheScrappy Scrappy]].
