* 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.

* Disney animated show ''TheWeekenders'' has a charity organization "helpers helping the helpless," where helpful helpers help helpless people needing help. Description courtesy of the lady in charge losing her thesaurus (she finds it later). Not ''quite'' this trope, but the name is there.

* Skeeve's team and later the ''M.Y.T.H. Inc.'' crew (in "[[ThemeNaming Some kind of]] [[Literature/MythAdventures MYTHsomething]]" by RobertAsprin) seems to take any client who can meet their fees. Admittedly, they've built up such a reputation by now that not just anyone can afford to hire them. * RepairmanJack from F. Paul Wilson's series of novels will fix anything, barring mechanical appliances.

* One of the jobs of the Seeker of Truth in SwordOfTruth series. Because of all of the world-threatening dangers that Richard ends up fighting, he very rarely has time to help the little guys. Knowing this, when he ''does'' have time, he teaches them to help themselves, often leading by example. It's surprisingly effective.

* The crew of the good ship ''Serenity'' in ''Series/{{Firefly}}''. As an added bonus, some of their jobs ''do'' involve helping the helpless. (When they noticed one of their jobs involved ''exploiting'' the helpless, Captain [[strike:Tightpants]] Mal did a HeelFaceTurn and brought the stolen loot back.) ** Lampshaded/subverted by Mal: "We rob from the rich and sell to the poor."
