* ''VideoGame/HaloReach'': '''Every''' main character except [[SoleSurvivor Jun]] and Kat. [[KilledMidSentence Kat's death]] averts this trope hard.

* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' has this regardless of which way the player ends the game. The Nameless One is determined to either destroy or reclaim his mortality, even though the former means instant death and the latter means death fairly shortly, as centuries of life suddenly catch up to him. He also knows that death means an eternity in Hell. So does he back down and remain immortal? No, he either destroys his very mortality in a battle of [[PhysicalGod Physical Gods]] or he overwhelms the being of superhuman intelligence and wisdom with logic and force of will and pulls it back into himself.

* What turned [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Ash Crimson]] from TheScrappy to [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap the contrary]] for a good part of the fandom is how, at the end of the Tales of Ash saga, his supposed EvilPlan was revealed to be a huge JerkAssFacade that covered his true BatmanGambit, which he deployed to protect his OnlyFriend Elisabeth... and finished with him ''willingly erasing himself from existence alongside his ancestor Saiki'' to do so. The fact that Ash also got to FaceDeathwithDignity and GoOutWithASmile sealed the deal.

* [[VideoGame/{{Mother3}} The exhausted Barrier Trio struck one final Barrier Pose!]] It was spectacular.

* In ''GearsOfWar 3'', Dominic Santiago heroically sacrifices himself to save the rest of Delta Squad by crashing a truck into a massive fuel tank. This scene was particularly shocking and heartbreaking because not only was Dom a very likable character, but he was also the one character that nobody expected to die.

* Stella's HeroicSacrifice in VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia.
* [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Asch's death]] gets it's own little video. Unarmed at first, he manages to fight off dozens of soldiers but then ends up stabbed in the back. The sword goes through him, another three swords get stabbed through his body. He kills the last remaining soldiers, ''remains standing and pulls one of the swords out'' before his strength leaves him and he falls to the ground. Also contains a GoOutWithASmile seconds before he slides down the wall.
* This is what happens in the true ending to VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2 as [[spoiler: Ludger sacrifices himself so not only do the fractured worlds stop appearing, but also so Elle, who is his daughter in another one of those worlds, can live without becoming a divergence catalyst.]]
