** Stroheim attempts to do that several times, when Santana escapes the lab - first he attempts to blow up entire lab along with himself, then asks Joseph to cut off his leg, so he would be able to reach the door to open it and burn Santana with sunlight, and after Santana hides in his body, blows himself up with a grenade in order to destroy both of them. Even though [[SenselessSacrifice Santana survives that]], it gives Joserph chance to expose him to sunlight, which turns him into a stone.

* Memorably parodied in ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis''. During a filler chapter/episode featuring an eating battle between several teams, Hyoutei's Shishido Ryoh noblely volunteers to drink [[GargleBlaster the disgusting Inui juice]] in order to allow his team to move forward, knowing full well he'll pass out after doing so. He gets a sunset-y "death" scene, his partner and best friend Ohtori pulling a BigNo on him and everything. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny And it was hilarious]].

* The rare non-lethal version happens in ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'': [[spoiler: Princess Charlotte/Tabitha and her mother, the duchess of Orléans, were in a high-class party. At some point a waiter handed Charlotte a drink while smiling weirdly; the Duchess was aware that Charlotte's EvilUncle Joseph wanted to harm her as she was the next in line for the Kingdom of Gallia, so she immediately took the glass and drank the potion whole.

* HeroicSacrifice is one of the central themes of ''GiantRobo: The Day the Earth Stood Still''. No surprise then that the series involves a ''huge'' number of mind-blowing yet touching sacrifices from both heroes and 'villains' alike.
