* While the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series never shows a character dying on screen, ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' has [[spoiler:Dhruke]] dying in an awesome, yet mundane way. They are shot by the killer three times and he just stands there while giving both a DeathGlare and a BadassBoast to them before dying moments later, causing said killer to [[OhCrap figuratively shit his pants]] and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere flee the scene]].

* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' has [[spoiler: [[OldMaster Gen]] ''finally'' [[DeathSeeker getting to die in exactly the way he wanted]]: a DuelToTheDeath with Akuma, rather than of his cancer.]] Not only that, but he also [[spoiler: uses his FamousLastWords to [[DefiantToTheEnd figuratively spit on Akuma's face]].]]

* All of Zero's various {{Heroic Sacrifice}}s throughout the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' and ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]]'' series qualifies, particularly the last one. Going out in a [[ColonyDrop literal blaze of glory]], taking a villain of the highest order with him, leaving behind a legacy of humans and Reploids working together for a more peaceful world. Said peace wouldn't have even come into fruition if the humans didn't see firsthand Zero's selfless acts throughout the series (up to and including the aforementioned HeroicSacrifice). It's [[{{Badass}} Zero]], for crying out loud. They have to make his death one of the highlights of his life/lives.

*** [[{{Samurai}} Dak'kon]]. The others are each faced with The Transcendant One alone, but Dak'kon is surrounded by at least half a dozen massive undead horrors, and [[{{Badass}} he still calmly elects to fight the bastard and all of his goons]].

*** [[{{Badass}} Nodrom]] challenges the Transcentdant One knowing full well that his chances of winning are slim. Not bad for an apparently soulless construct.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'': Noctis comes out of a ten year hibernation to find that the world has gone to hell with it being perpetual night and demons roaming the world. He and his friends make their way to Insomnia to fight Ardyn, though Ardyn stuns the other three since it's a one on one battle between kings. Noctis then sacrifices his life to not only destroy the Starscourge, but in the afterlife he destroys Ardyn once and for all in the process.

* Episode 5 is one big one for [[PlayerCharacter Lee]]. After being bitten at the end of Episode 4, he spends the last hours of his life going on a RoaringRampageOfRescue to save Clementine, managing to get her out of Savannah and leaving her with some final advice on how to survive without him. Extra points if you decide to go ahead with the option to have his arm amputated, making him a HandicappedBadass.
