* The ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', whose philosophy, as Peter says in a television ad, is that "no job is too big, no ''fee'' is too big!" Though they do milk business customers like the Sedgewick Hotel for all they're worth, they're more forgiving when it comes to private individuals like Dana and Louis.

* [[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]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'', BLADE's primary mission is to recover the Lifehold core, but they're generally designed to be able to respond to anything and everything that the citizens of New Los Angeles need. From fighting off dangerous Indigens and hostile Xenoforms, Scouting the planet and installing Data Probes, solving domestic disputes, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking finding lost pets]], and anything else under Mira's five moons. Granted, BLADE IS divided into divisions that supposedly specialize in more specific fields but any BLADE, regardless of division, can accept any job if they feel they can handle it. So it's not uncommon for, say, a [[TheBigGuy Harrier]] to provide marriage counseling, or an [[TheBlacksmith Outfitter]] to gun down a rampaging [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Millisaur]] if they need to. This is justified in universe, as humanity has only been living on the planet for a couple of months prior to the game's start, and they know next to nothing about it. Such flexibility is ideal in a situation where anything can happen.

* Travis [=McGee=], from John D. [=MacDonald=]'s novels. He usually gives his profession as 'salvage consulant'.
* Creator/TamoraPierce has a character named Kel - the heroine of the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aptly-named]] ''Literature/ProtectorOfTheSmall'' quartet. Kel spends most of her time outside training kicking the collective asses of anyone who picks on helpless people. She's ''good'' at it, too.

* 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' is all about this trope, with lending a helping hand being Wander's modus operandi. "The Wanders" states that he does it so much because he knows what it's like to be in that situation.
