** Also, special mention should go to Asuka's death, which occurs less than twenty minutes later. After her LastStand against the MP Evas, she finally runs out of power, gets stabbed through the skull, disemboweled, harpooned, dismembered, and finally eaten. The entire time, not only is she still alive, but she's still trying to fight back! This is either one of the most [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome kick-ass moments in the series]] or one of the most disturbing... She gets better 'tho... If waking up in a ruined post-Apocalyptic world as one of possibly the only two people alive can be called "better".

** Piccolo spent the last two arcs of Dragon Ball as the main villain, slaughtering thousands, including quite a few main characters. But his first death in Dragon Ball Z has him [[TakingTheBullet throw himself in front of Gohan to block a blast from Nappa.]] Extra points for surviving the blast in one piece and remaining on his feet for a few seconds just to stick it to Nappa, and then spending his last minutes telling [[MorealityPet Gohan]] [[LickedByTheDog how he changed his (Piccolo's) life for the best]].

** At the end of the first season of the original anime, the deaths of the Sailor Senshi against the DD Girls, the strongest Youma around: Jupiter summoned a lightning that ''pulverized'' two of them and killed her, Mercury, who didn't have any offensive ability, walked into certain death to destroy the source of the illusions that made them almost invincible, Sailor Venus survived their strongest attack and replied with one that killed her and disintegrated only one of them only because [[OhCrap the other two ran in terror when they saw she was still alive]], and Mars burned down one, was left for death from their combined attack, and then burned down the last own before dying by ''exhaustion''.
** In ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'', Ace's death in an ActOfTrueLove: [[spoiler: knowing that Sailor Venus, [[ReincarnationRomance who he loved from their past lives]], [[MarriedToTheJob would always choose duty over love]] and fearing she'd suffer more than necessary from it and even die should she find out at a bad moment, he joined the Dark Kingdom, discovered that Venus had reincarnated as Minako, set up a situation in which Minako would fall for him, and then reveal his role as Kunzite's {{Dragon}} and fight her, so she could realize it early and in a controlled situation by ''killing him'', and, mortally wounded, [[GoOutWithASmile he smiled]] before explaining what he had done]]. [[BrokenBird She suffered from it]], but still lived and triumphed, and got over that pain.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'': Jack Rakan managing to [[PowerFist hammer]] [[BigBad Fate Averruncus]] into a huge crater ''while being erased from existence''. Depending on your interpretation, it could be argued that he went out PUNCHING GOD IN THE FACE... And if Jack Rakan has to die, that's exactly how it should happen.

* Musashi in ''Manga/GetterRobo'' gets one in every single alternate version he is. In the manga and in the beginning of Shin Getter VS Neo Getter, he pilots the Getter Robo in its three forms alone and fights the entire Dinosaur Army, and when the titular robot can no longer take it, he makes it pull out its reactor and make it blow up, pulverizing him and the rest of his enemies. In the 70's animated series, he pilots one of the aircrafts with a bomb strapped to it, and crash it in the core of the Dinosaur Army base. While sustaining heavy fire and piloting through narrower and narrower corridors.

* You know one of these is coming in ''GashBell'' when "[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Yasashii Kaze]]" starts to play.
* ''TransformersCybertron'' has [[TheDeterminator Starscream]], who goes down in a BattleAura enhanced PunchParry [[UpToEleven so massive it creates an explosion sufficient to destroy a small planet]] (and leaves a pretty big crater in the ''large'' planet they are actually on).

** Raoh's death. He sends his fist towards the heavens, says "I HAVE NO REGRETS!" and projects all his energy into the sky, bringing light to the desolate waste lands and becoming a statue in the process. He commits a HeroicSacrifice for the whole world. He becomes the [[Pantheon/LifeAndDeath God of it]]!

* ''Manga/MiraiNikki'': There's no doubt about Akise's badass status when in chapter 51 despite having just been stabbed by Yuno and sliced across the throat, he gets back up out of sheer determination and texts an important message to Yukiteru even though Yuno ends up cutting off his head completely.

* Used ''repeatedly'' on ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', throughout the series, although obviously none of them stick (from the audience perspective anyways). Also used at least once in VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry with Rika in the Shion arc, though there even she wasn't expecting it to stick.

* ''{{Hellsing}}'': [[CowardlyLion Sir Penwood]] was already pretty cool for the line [[CowardlyLion "While I may be incompetent...I am no sneak, Integra."]] (Meaning he had remained loyal in spite of the offer of immortality.) Then, as the Nazi vampires kick down the door, he [[TakingYouWithMe blows them all to pieces with planted explosives]].
