* In ''Literature/TheRuinsOfAnAmericanPartySystem'', when [[SleazyPolitician Huey Long]] is facing the end of his political career and jail time for corruption charges, he decides to [[MagnificentBastard go out on his own terms]]. First, he votes for the Civil Rights Act (partly because he's always personally wanted it but fought it for political reasons, partly as a final "fuck you" to his opponents both within and without his own party). Then he overdoses on morphine in his home before he can be formally charged with anything. And as an unexpected bonus, the shock of hearing about all of this causes Long's main idealogical rival Eugene Talmadge to drop dead of a heart attack.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Though Pyrrha eventually loses her life, her final fight is a powerful struggle against Cinder, throwing the huge gears in Ozpin's ruined office at Cinder, landing solid hits, and once even pinning Cinder by the throat. Even with the complete powers of the Fall Maiden, Cinder actually struggles to gain the upper hand over Pyrrha and retain that advantage long enough to win. The fight strongly implies that Cinder, despite being the BigBad, could not have defeated Pyrrha without the Fall Maiden powers. Pyrrha ''is'' a prodigy after all.

** Epsilon gets one for real at the end of season 13. With the Reds and Blues trapped in a room with Charon's forces about to breach the door, everyone gears up ready for a LastStand. Right before the door is breached Epsilon leaves a message to his friends and others to several other people explaining that he is deconstructing himself so that the fragments he'll leave will be able to run all the enhancements in the Meta's old armor so that everyone will have a chance of surviving the fight. As he says good-bye he laments that he'll never know if his sacrifice really made a difference, but he just needs to have faith that it will be enough.
-->'''Church''': Ain't that a bitch.
