In Tales of the Emperasque Vulkan , Corvus and Leman all find themselves in various distresses before Emperor rescues them: Vulkan is stuck on a planet full of Everything Trying to Kill You , Corvus is trapped in ever-changing, sanity-breaking maze and Leman is about to be overrun by Chaos armies. In Slight Hope , Jin is in far too bad a shape to fight back against Hazama, who had come along with the intention of killing him. Having butted heads with their allies once too often and stormed off to work on their own , they usually fail spectacularly and have to be rescued, after which the Aesop has been taught and they can resume kicking ass. He rescues not only Hakoda but Suki as well, who is also a badass. When the Hunger attacks, it corrupts the Astral Plane, trapping Kravitz in an ocean of a black, tar-like substance, leaving him perpetually drowning.

Badass in Distress
Happens twice in The Force Awakens , first to Poe Dameron at the very beginning and then to Rey, who actually becomes more badass while in distress as Kylo Ren keeps accidentally teaching her about the Force by example. Princess Celestia is this in both the series pilot and the Season 2 finale. Even when she was a prisoner she punched the fuck outta Suzaku while wearing a Pimped-Out Dress. In the intro, an insect-like creature named Taranza wipes out all of King Dedede's soldiers and took the king high up into the floating islands of Floralia , prompting Kirby to rescue him from the clutches of the spider-like mage.
