* Mr. Incredible from The Incredibles. The fact that he's forbidden by law from engaging in vigilante heroism is a major source of stress for him. His desire to go help a mugging victim eventually leads to a disastrous confrontation with his boss at Insuricare. In the DVD special features, the National Super Agency's file on Mr. Incredible lists this as one of his weaknesses. In the opening scene, as he rushes to his own wedding he has to stop to help in a police chase, then while on his way to do that he stops to help a woman get her cat out of a tree. Fortunately, said tree also came in VERY handy in stopping the car the criminals involved in said police chase were driving! His hero syndrome even shines through as an insurance worker. He is as helpful as possible to clients when company policy demands that he be as unhelpful as possible.
- Finn from Adventure Time. He explains that he was abandoned as a baby and nobody stopped to help him, so he doesn't want anyone else to go through that.
- Wander in "The Fugitives"; trying to resist helping others appears to cause Wander great stress.
Further confirmed in "The Nice Guy"; even when there isn't someone visibly in trouble/need, the possibility or implication of it will still make Wander go out of his way to help. Even further confirmed in "The Helper", where the concept of an entire day (or an entire planet) where absolutely no one needs him to do anything is enough to drive him completely out of his mind. The boy is compelled to assist.
