** Vegeta's death after Frieza gives him a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. Vegeta has been despicable for sixty-something episodes, and has just killed a village full of cute alien children and their big brothers. You'd expect a character of this type to die in a spectacular explosion, then never be seen again. But instead, after Frieza shoots him for describing Goku as a Super-Saiyan, we get Vegeta's lengthy final speech about his genuinely horrendous childhood, and see Vegeta crying as he begs Goku to kill Frieza and avenge their people, before breathing his last in a BigSleep from his terrible injuries.
*** Although [[DeathIsCheap he eventually gets better like nigh everybody else in the series]], he does get a burial from Goku.

** The Egg of the Perfect World is one of the few villains in ''Berserk'' that is actually LIKABLE. His death scene is heart shattering.

** The Egg of the Perfect World is one of the few villains in ''Berserk'' that is actually LIKABLE. His death scene scene, where he selflessly sacrifices himself for Griffith, is very heart shattering.

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', Prince Emilio may have spent much of his life wanting nothing more than [[RevengeBeforeReason revenge]] on his ParentalSubstitute King Delzaine (who reportedly killed his father and is shown to be an unsympathetic ruler), but when Delzaine dies [[PapaWolf protecting him]] from [[AxeCrazy Ibelda]], Emilio regrets it heavily and it's not hard to feel sympathetic. There's also an element of this when Ibelda needlessly slaughters his fellow [[LesCollaborateurs Truculent]] without warning.

* Caster and Souichirou's deaths in the Unlimited Blade Works route ''Anime/FateStayNight'' were definitely this. Caster is killed by Archer (an entity who is much stronger than her) while trying to protect Souichirou, her lover. When Caster is killed, Archer gives Souichirou the opportunity to flee for his life but Souichirou is so upset at her sacrifice he tries to avenge her death, [[CurbStompBattle and is effortlessly killed by Archer.]] Even our protagonists are upset at their deaths.
** Illya's death in UBW (killed by Gilgamesh) is also very sad. Illya might be a homicidal woman-child but the brutality at which Gilgamesh kills her is unnecessarily harsh, especially considering Gil didn't even need to kill her.

* ''Anime/{{K}}: Return of Kings'' has the Green and Grey Kings. As Shiro enacts his plan to [[spoiler: destroy the Slates]], Nagare, the Green King, asks why Shiro rejects his WellIntentionedExtremist plan to give the whole world superpowers. Shiro and Neko tell him that they don't need any of that - just warm food and friends to share it with around a small table. Nagare thinks back to his Clan's secret base, which was a lot like that, and remembers their warm life together as he dies. Then, the Grey King, who was like a father to Nagare, comes and holds Nagare as they die together. Afterwards, their remaining Clansmen toss flowers into the spot where they died and remember them.

* In ''Manga/MiraiNikki'', virtually of the Future Diary owners receive this trope although Yukiteru Amano and Kamado Ueshita may be excused and others have taken their own HeelFaceTurn. Most notably are [[{{Yandere}} Yuno Gasai]] who suffered a terrible childhood, went insane and became a god in order to repeat time to respend her days with her loved one Yuki, until she eventually is DrivenToSuicide to ensure he becomes a god. She gets better though.

** In the Thousand Years Old Blood War, we have Royd Lloyd. Just... Royd Lloyd. Not only he was subjected to a massive CurbStompBattle from Yamamoto while posing as his leader Juhabach, but before Juha goes "YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness", he looks so damn ''happy'' as he lays dying. And the first page of 510 shows his backstory as well...

* ''Manga/{{Gunnm}}'' had Zapan, a bounty hunter cyborg whose problems can [[WhatTheHellHero all be ultimately traced back to Alita]]. Exposition time: Alita beat him up and humiliated him for not wanting to serve as cannon fodder for her quest against a brain-eating cyborg. From there, he tries to stop her from helping a wanted fugitive escape, at which point, Alita dupes the security bots on site into thinking that Zapan was trying to steal her proof of bounty. She ''rips his face off'' and leaves him for dead, only to be discovered with partial memory loss by a young woman named Sarah who worked at a soup kitchen. The two fall in love, and live fairly happily until Zapan sees Alita on television, gets horrific flashbacks, and has a mental breakdown, screaming "This isn't my face!" as he ''tears off most of the skin on his face.'' As he thrashed in pain, he killed several winos, and, more importantly, accidentally decapitated Sarah. He became wanted and horrifically depressed. Alita hunts him down, then, after mind-raping him ''a second time'', she lets him get devoured by cyborg dogs. Almost done: after he's resurrected and put in the super-robot-killing-machine Berserker Body, he starts wreaking havoc on Scrapyard, finally being hit by several 'Collapser' bullets from Alita, and the two are plummeting from several miles in the air, both horrifically wounded and on the verge of death. But suddenly, Zapan wakes up: he's lying on a sleeping mat in the market next to Sarah, who comforts him after he briefly recounts his horrible nightmare. She hugs him and tells him that he's not a monster like the Zapan in the dream is, and that she'll always be with him...and then he snaps out of his mortal-wounding induced hallucination, right back to where he was. He screams Sarah's name once, then continues to disintegrate, but not before flapping his wings just once, enough to break Alita's fall and save her.

Although considering everything she did you him, one has to wonder why he didn't just let her die.
