* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'': In the fourth episode of season two, Amentia tries to force one of the major characters into marrying her. Brandon effectively lucks out of it, and in the 24th episode of the season, Brandon and Sky decide to get Amentia's help in allowing the Specialists' ship to get inside the Underrealm to rescue Bloom. Also, in season one, a few nymphs from one of the {{Filler}} episodes warned Alfea of the arrival of the villains during the final battle.
** The fairies and witches joining forces against the Trix.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'''s "The Return" had the entire League trying to help out citizen LexLuthor (he got a pardon in a previous episode of ''JusticeLeague'') who was being targeted by AMAZO, an unstoppable robot. They didn't like it but they had to try and stop AMAZO especially after it looks like he disintegrated Oa. [[spoiler:He didn't he just warped it out of his way. Once the misunderstanding is cleared up, he warps it back.]]
** Done during the finale of the series as well when the Legion of Doom unwittingly resurrected Darkseid due to a final act of revenge from Tala, [[LivingBattery who was being sacrificed for the ritual intended to bring back Brainiac]], and the evil extraterrestrial comes gunning for Earth. Both the JL and the Legion team up to take on the bigger threat.
* In the DTV movie ''[[ComicBook/DCTheNewFrontier Justice League: The New Frontier]]'', the Centre has finally shown up off Cape Canaveral. The military and the CIA, however, are more interested in keeping Franchise/{{Batman}}, Franchise/TheFlash, ComicBook/GreenArrow, the Comicbook/{{Blackhawk}}s and ComicBook/AdamStrange away from it, both sides drawing weapons on each other. It takes an angry Franchise/{{Superman}} to get the two groups to join forces -- especially after he gets blown out of the sky and is presumed dead.
* The final two episodes of ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' were the main cast calling on aid from almost every mutant from the series to stop Apocalypse.
* The fifth season finale of the 2003 ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' cartoon involved the turtles calling on everyone they'd ever worked with, and a few they'd fought against, to help stop the threat.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', during the Day of Black Sun, various allies of the Gaang from the Earth Nation show up to help out. [[spoiler: It's also one of the few cases where this gambit fails almost completely. However,]] in the series finale, other characters such as [[spoiler: Iroh, Jeong Jeong, Bumi, and Pakku]], to name a few, show up to help fight the Fire Nation.
* The sequel series, ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra'', has General Iroh of the Fire Nation (Zuko's grandson, not his uncle) responding to Republic City's call for help in the battle against the equalists. Iroh brings the whole United Forces armada, in two waves (the second led by Bumi, Aang and Katara's son).
* The series ender of ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' and the episode "Reign Storm".
* Season 4 of ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' involves an AlienInvasion with Gotham City at ground zero. There's a breakout at Arkham Asylum, and the Gotham City Police Department arrives to find the inmates fighting the aliens, the Joker being especially angry that the aliens are invading his turf. When his lieutenant asks Gordon what to do, he orders his men to back the supervillains up.
* ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo'': Chiro called upon a bunch of previous allies for an epic battle against the Skeleton King... one which never did come (shakes fist at Jetix).
* The penultimate episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', "Titans Together", had every young hero the team had encountered over the past five seasons coming together to help battle the Brotherhood of Evil.
* In the last story arc of the first season of Filmation's ''WesternAnimation/FlashGordon'', Flash, Barin, Thun, and Vultan put out a call to the various allies they've made for a final united battle against Ming. It's pretty awesome.
* WesternAnimation/ReBoot has Bob call for help from Megabyte and his viral army when the CPU's are outmatched by the web creatures. It turns out Megabyte was deliberately waiting in order to let the web creatures cripple the CPU forces so that Megabyte would have an easier time taking over after his [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder inevitable betrayal]].
* ''WesternAnimation/MrBogus'':
** This was also somehow used in the episode "[[Recap/MrBogusS2E4BookstoreBogus Bookstore Bogus]]", where Bogus calls on the help of Little Red Riding Hood, the Big Bad Wolf, and Humpty Dumpty to help him save Rapunzel from the clutches of his sworn enemies, Ratty and Mole.
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the second act of the episode "[[Recap/MrBogusS3E4KungFuCampout Kung Fu Campout]]". In order to stop the aliens from running amok, Bogus calls on the help of [[RascallyRaccoon a raccoon]], [[NuttySquirrel a squirrel]], and [[MoleMiner and a star-nosed mole]] (via use of a drum), but these animals refuse to help. However, it is played straight afterwards when Bogus has no other choice now but to [[EnemyMine call on the help of his sworn enemies, Ratty and Mole.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' does this twice. In one episode Annihilus attacks Prison 42 with his army of bug creatures and traps the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents stationed there with no way to escape or call for help from the outside. So they end up releasing most of the super villains being held there to help fight off the invaders. Most except Baron Zemo, who Captain America knows he can't trust. Also in the series finale when Galactus and his heralds come to devour the Earth, the Avengers call on almost every super hero that has appeared on the show so far.
* In the season finale of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'', Wilykit and Wilykat, realizing that the others are going to need help during the battle against Mumm-Ra's forces, go off to recruit nearly every friendly person or group the Thundercats had met during their journey thus far. They come back to provide TheCavalry at the crucial moment.
** This is comically DoubleSubverted when they first come in: the big fanfare is for them to bring in ''one guy'' to help, but then we find out there were more in their BagOfHolding, he just didn't want to go in it.
* The second season finale of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' has every single live superhero showing up to help save the Earth.
* Happens on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' when the people from Jersey Shore stage a take-over of state-wide magnitude. After their pleas to the government fall on deaf ears, the inhabitants turn to [[spoiler:OsamaBinLaden]] of all people. And they get his support.
