*Played straight in ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare3'' when Yuri, though already impaled on a steel beam earlier, charges in guns-blazing to stall Makarov long enough for Price to recover and kill him.

* In the Jedi Knight storyline on Voss in [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic Star Wars The Old Republic]], the player [[spoiler: encounters a character named Tala-Reh, who helps them with their adventures on the planet. At the end of the last story mission on that planet, Tala-Reh sacrifices herself - on orders of [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MadOracle the mystic Valen-Da]] - to defeat Sel-Makor, the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EldritchAbomination being]] that had corrupted much of Voss and engineered a war to increase its own power.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has ''four'', if the player goes the Genocide route. First there is [[spoiler: Papyrus who defiantly says that they truly believe the player can be good if they try]], then the player meets [[spoiler: Undyne who dies, ''comes back thrice as strong'' and dies because her body gives out (not because of the player) while showing a big grin as she announces that thanks to her, the other monsters will have escaped]]. Then the player meets [[spoiler: Mettaton, who shows a impressive form, but is extremely weak. He is this nonetheless, because he fought DESPITE knowing he will instantly die. And if the player does anything but fight in the first round, he declares it a win for himself since the player can't be as bloodthirsty as they seemed]]. And then there is [[spoiler: Sans, who gives the player the most brutal beat down ever and when he gets fatally hit, he simply shrugs it off and walks off-screen so that the player can't even gloat him in his face as he dies]].

* ''Franchise/StarCraft'':
** In the original game, Tassadar sacrifices himself to destroy [[EldritchAbomination 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]].

* Takeharu Kirijo of ''{{Persona 3}}'' gets one in the [[UpdatedRerelease PSP remake]]. After Ikutsuki shoots him, leaving him fatally wounded, Takeharu pulls out a gun of his own and fires back at Ikutsuki. (In the other versions of the game, [[TeamPet Koromaru]] attacks Shuji, which is awesome in its own right, but it's not a DMOA.)
