** Its predecessor ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'' had a similar format where the Monsters of the Week were {{Jerkass Genie}}s who took the Victim's wish and warped it for their own ends, usually Woobie-fying them in the process. Protagonist Ryotaro would try to help the victims, initially taking some flak from some of his allies who insisted his only job is to protect the timestream, but his response was that helping the victims was part of that job too.

* This trope is one of two main gimmicks of ''YamadaKunAndTheSevenWitches'', along with {{Magic Kiss}}es. Every arc revolves around at least one character with a hard life - usually one of the titular witches - that Yamada needs to help. The series is not afraid to play the JerkassWoobie card, though - many of the woobies of the week are rather uncooperative or even villainous until Yamada finds out what is troubling them and gets through to them.

* ''TheLoveBoat'' likewise has a new set of guests every week, all of them looking for love on the cruise ship.
* ''QuantumLeap'' has this built into its premise: Bakula jumps into a new body every episode, and that person, or someone around him, is ''always'' in distress. The series catchphrase, his mission, is to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong; once that's accomplished, he leaps into the next body. It's heavily implied to be the result of divine intervention.
