* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' offers a meta-subversion. The game was ''supposed'' to be the last game made by {{Squaresoft}} before it went bankrupt, and Hironobu Sakaguchi retired from the gaming industry. [[CashCowFranchise Look at what it is now]]. [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle Now you know]]. [[SincerityMode How's that for encouraging]]?

* Every Colossi's death in ''ShadowOfTheColossus'', and arguably Dormin's, if you consider Them truly vanquished.

* In ''StarCraft'' Tassadar sacrifices himself to destroy the Overmind. ** For those that actually haven't played the game: Tassadar is/was the commander of the Protoss forces until he committed the treason/heresy of not only talking with the Dark Templar but embracing them and sharing in their learning. Cue Zerg invasion of Aiur (Protoss homeworld) that reaches such a [[ZergRush stupendous scale]] that they even manifest the physical body of the Hive Mind there. In the climax of the battle, Tassadar takes it upon himself to finish the job; namely flying his damaged and deteriorating flagship dead at the Hive Mind's physical shell, while channeling every ounce of his legendary psychic power [[YinYangBomb using both Khala AND Dark Templar techniques throughout the ships hull, turning it into a psychically-charged kamikaze nuke so strong it (more or less) KILLS THE HIVE MIND of the entire Zerg]].

They manage to make casualties in the ''thousands'' before they are all killed. ** In ''[[VideoGame/StarCraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm Heart of the Swarm]]'', [[HeroAntagonist General Warfield]], when dying in front of Kerrigan, [[DefiantToTheEnd uses his last breath to]]] 1) [[TheMenFirst demand she lets his surviving men go]] and 2) deliver her a spectacular ReasonYouSuckSpeech. He gets brutally killed by her for his troubles, but his speech has enough effect to convince her to actually spare his men like he asked. ** In ''[[VideoGame/StarCraftIILegacyOfTheVoid Legacy of the Void]]'', Zeratul dies in a duel with [[DemonicPossession an Amon-possessed]] [[TheHero Artanis]], but manages during the fight to severe Artanis' nerve cords, freeing him from the possession in the process.

* Following that, SEGA in sense went through this during its Dreamcast Era. This would be the company's swan song as a First Party developer and player in the console wars before reviving itself solely as a Third Party. Considering this was the period they had a massive surge of great ''new'' output with [=IPs=] that would live on today (like SkiesOfArcadia, VideoGame/JetSetRadio, CrazyTaxi, SambaDeAmigo, and many many more) and the Dreamcast itself was accepted very well in sharp contrast to its immediate [[SegaSaturn predecessor]]; critics, fans, and some non-fans would agree that they went out with a bang. To this day, although still successful, SEGA hasn't hit a home run quite like they did back then.

-->'''Crach:''' Shut your trap...and fight!fight! * In ''VideoGame/FateExtra'', either Rani VIII's Berserker or Rin's Lancer, depending on player actions: whichever one the player chooses will sacrifice their life in order to save their Master's, Lancer firing off one last one-liner and Berserker giving what the PlayerCharacter describes as a fatherly smile to Rani before they sacrifice themselves.

* In VideoGame/AsurasWrath, this is pretty much how the last two episodes are! Episode 21 has Yasha getting into one last battle with Asura which has a hidden purpose: to awaken the Mantra Reactor he placed inside of him, showing he ripped out his own core to help power it. Episode 22 is this in spades with Asura flying to the ends of the galaxy to fight [[spoiler: [[GodIsEvil Chakravartin]] to rescue his daughter Mithra, as well as keep him from destroying Gaea. Even when Mithra tells Asura that he will die if he kills Chakravartin, Asura just cares that Mithra will still live as he finishes off Chakravartin once and for all. In that moment as he disintegrates, he finally feels his rage is gone and can finally join his wife in death.]]

* Bill's death in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead''. In the campaign The Sacrifice, the survivors are trying to get a boat to get out to sea and hopefully to an island somewhere the infections hasn't reached yet. In order to do so, they have to operate several generators in order to hoist the noisy drawbridge. In the process of doing so, one of the generators powers down, leaving the drawbridge shut, and the survivors exposed. Louis begins to volunteer to be the one to go back to turn it back on, as he had a busted leg (canonically at least, gameplay wise it doesn't matter who), but before he does Bill goes back a guns a blazing. He manages to get the generator fixed, but is trapped in the generator room by no fewer than [[OhCrap THREE]] Tanks. [[BadassGrandpa Because you -need- that many tanks to take out someone like Bill]].

* What turned [[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.
