** Liutenant Saito from the second TV series goes out wielding a [[GunsAkimbo pair]] of machine guns and screaming his head off as he [[HoldTheLine keeps the bad guys off his companion]] while the latter is setting up the bomb for said bad guys. The next time we see him, his companion calls out to him a few times with no response... then [[DiedStandingUp Saito falls onto his back after a few seconds, revealing over a dozen holes all over his body]]. Can't be less from a character voiced by [[Creator/IsaoSasaki the same man who sang the series' opening song.]]



* In ''LightNovel/TheTwelveKingdoms'' we have a teenage girl named Rangyaku huddled in a corner, shivering and crying TearsOfFear as she mentally begs her ActionGirl friend Youshi (actually the Queen of Kei, Youko, in disguise) to help the Kei kingdom before she's stabbed to death. Not very awesome, you say? Think twice. When Yoshi/Youko arrives and finds Rangyaku's lifeless body, she sees that Rangyaku hid something among her clothes... [[MacGuffin The Seal of Kei]], which is vital whenever Youko needs to show her authority. So the poor girl couldn't fight her killers back, but managed to protect something that the heroine of the story ''cannot'' act with in the end.
** We later meet another lady who died even more awesomely: Ribi, one of King Shoryuu's counselors. She and the "Sacred beast" Enki have been captured by the enemy and are forced to wear magical red cords that react to one another: if one tries to take their cord off, it'll create a fatal backlash that will kill him/her. For worse, Enki's cord actually [[PowerLimiter seals]] [[BroughtDownToNormal his beastly powers]], [[DistressedDude making him completely helpless.]] What does Ribi do? As soon as she and Enki are alone, she cuts off Enki's cord ''herself'', clearly knowing that ''she'' will be hit and killed by the backlash. And yup, Ribi has her head sliced in half and dies, but Enki is released and escapes from their prision.

** In a meta sense, the whole anime is kind of this way for ''Creator/StudioGainax''. It was one of their last animes ever made and their last mecha anime. It's also a culmination of everything they made up to that point (from ''Anime/{{GunBuster}}' s'' Homage style and [[RuleOfCool over-]][[SerialEscalation the-]][[{{Troperrific}} topness]], ''Anime/{{NeonGenesisEvangelion}}'s '' {{Deconstruction}} and themes of TheAntiNihilist and BeYourself and ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'s'' sheer insanity.)

* Chtholly's death in ''LightNovel/SukaSuka'' may have been [[{{Tearjerker}} tragic]] considering the circumstances involved, but you can't deny that she went out ''like a badass'' by wiping out the hordes of Timere the entire crew (which included her equally capable fellow leprechaun friends plus [[AlmightyJanitor Wil]][[DentedIron lem]]) had trouble with for the previous episodes in the area they were assigned in. Even after tanking all the Timeres' fatal attacks against her (which inevitably led to her death), she ''still'' had enough energy in her to calmly walk towards Willem and an unconscious Nephren to deliver her final parting words to him.

* ''ShinAngyoOnshi's'' protagonist Munsu has this at the very end. It really has to be seen to be believed. Missing an arm, he finally confronts the PhysicalGod BigBad Aji Tae. Aji Tae subsequently decides to take Munsus other arm and an eye. All ''that'' does is make Munsu taunt Aji Tae to try and crush his heart and ''continuing'' to walk towards him. Aji Tae, who was previously presented as by far the most powerful being in the story, ''nearly shits himself in fear'' until he notices Munsu has finally died. [[DiedStandingUp Still standing, staring at Aji Tae.]] The relief doesn't last long, as a very angry Sando attacks Aji Tae from behind. Now, Aji Tae would have vaporized her, except, ''the dead Munsu is standing on his cape'', preventing him from turning around fast enough.

* ''Manga/CityHunter'': Hideyuki. Attacked by a man dosed with a drug called Angel Dust and surprised at arms length by what was by now a killing machine almost Immune to Bullets and capable to tear down a car bare-handed, he somehow succeeded in killing the zombified man, and, while mortally wounded, managed to walk to Ryo's home, warn his friend about the danger, and give him a ring for Kaori before finally succumbing. Becomes even more awesome when later appearances of people dosed with Angel Dust make clear that anyone else but Ryo will die in terror when attacked by those people.

*** And in the final episode Mikazuki and Akihiro choose to [[YouShallNotPass stay fighting to ensure the rest of Tekkadan can escape safely]]. When their Mobile Suits are almost torn to pieces by a barrage of Dainsleif rail cannons, they stand up and continue to ''slaughter'' Gjallarhorn's mobile suits. Akihiro succeeds in killing [[KnowNothingKnowItAll Iok Kujan]] (who had escaped death all season) by crushing his cockpit, avenging Naze, Amida and Lafter (who got killed indirectly thanks to Iok), while Mikazuki continues fighting, and would have killed [[ActionGirl Julieta]] had he not bled out seconds before finishing her.
