* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series mythology, this falls within the realm of Stendarr, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric Divine]] God of Mercy, Justice, and Compassion. He is a protector deity and heavily associated with Restoration magic. His [[TheCommandments Commandment]] states: "Be kind and generous to the people of Tamriel. Protect the weak, heal the sick, and give to the needy."

** Fittingly, in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the Vigil of Stendarr is a ChurchMilitant order dedicated to hunting down and destroying supernatural threats to mortal life, including Daedra, Daedra worshipers, vampires, lycanthropes, and others. The Vigil formed in the wake of the [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion Crisis]] with the goal of preventing any similar incidents. The Vigil believes itself to be doing good and helping the helpless, which is, for the most part, accurate. They'll cure disease free of charge and work to eliminate supernatural threats to mortal life. However, they can also veer into KnightTemplar territory pretty easily.

* In Creator/MercedesLackey' Tarma & Kethry stories, part of the [[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Valdemar]] setting, Kethry's magical sword 'Need' compels her to help any woman in trouble. Sometimes, even if the woman in question doesn't WANT help.

* Lupin and the gang from ''Anime/{{Lupin III}}'' (though mostly the anime adaptations and ''not'' the original manga). They're career criminals, but will often help out those in need, especially if they're being harassed by even worse criminals.

* Minako Aino from ''Manga/SailorMoon'' just can't stop herself from helping anyone in need she stumbles upon, especially in [[Manga/CodenameSailorV her solo series]], no matter the trouble she may get in doing so (once got late to school, once she nearly missed a lottery she wanted to take part in and ended up winning it as ''Sailor V'', and once she nearly exposed her SecretIdentity), and without asking for rewards (and the one time she ''was'' given a reward for helping a mangaka completing the next chapter before the deadline Artemis convinced her to give it back).

* [[Characters/SupermanTheCharacter Superman]] tends to do this while not requiring/demanding any gratitude in return, there is a reason he was called "Champion of the Oppressed" back in the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]].

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} can't stop herself from helping people in need. During the early Silver Age she spent more time protecting the weak and making people happy anonymously than fighting super-villains. "Help for all" is, actually, her motto.
-->'''Supergirl''': My cousin once said in an interview that he stood for "Truth, Justice and the American Way of Life". If anyone asked me, I'd say I stand for "Hope, Help and Compassion For All."

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Nelson & Murdock is a firm that provides legal services to working class residents in Hell's Kitchen that can't go anywhere else. For instance, they decide to defend Karen Page because Matt knows from her heartbeat that she's innocent, she admits that she doesn't have any money to afford an attorney, and she's their first client in the seven hours since Matt and Foggy signed the lease for their office space.
* ''Series/LukeCage2016'': Luke's initial superheroics against Cottonmouth are all in the name of the innocent Harlem residents that Cottonmouth harasses and intimidates. In fact, a RunninGag of the show is people offering Luke money in exchange for his superheroics, or telling him he could charge money for his services, and Luke refusing (especially funny given Luke's "Heroes For Hire" past in the comics).

She's reliable enough (when sober) that high-price attorneys like Jeri Hogarth and corporate billionaires like [[Series/IronFist2017 Joy Meachum]] are willing to employ her services. That said, she puts aside the issue of money whenever it comes to helping those that Kilgrave has victimized.
