* In ''AngelSanctuary'' there are many heroic deaths, though some are more 'I'll die as a hero' by characters who'd die anyway but want to show off a little.

* This one gets a bit of a workout in ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. By the end of the series, we had several significant {{Heroic Sacrifice}}s that saved other people, most memorably [[spoiler:Kittan, who ''destroyed a space ocean'' with his dying laugh, and Lordgenome, who stopped and absorbed the shot from a WaveMotionGun ''[[SlapOnTheWristNuke powered by a Big Bang]]''. [[AllThereInTheManual Additional materials]] and [[WordOfGod the creators]] have also confirmed that Nia knowingly went to her death rather than ask Simon to save her, in order to avert [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the Spiral Nemesis]], although [[GainaxEnding it wasn't entirely clear in the anime itself]]]].

** Also speaking of the ball; [[spoiler: several secondary characters [[TakingTheBullet take the bullet]] to save members of Ala Alba; Mama Bear for Natsumi, Aisha and Craig for Nodoka, Emily for Yue, and Tosaka for Ako. Soon after that, Jack Rakan himself does a point blank attack on Fate, even though he knows he's about to be erased from existence. ]]

* In the manga ''[[KonjikiNoGashBell Konjiki no Gash!!]]'', the former badass Vincent Bari puts himself in a mortal situation to allow the protagonists to enter Big Bad Faudo's innards. To avoid killing him, Umagon burns his book to send him back to the demon world.

*** Igaram getting himself blown up to give Vivi and the Strawhats a chance to safely escape Whiskey Peak. *** Igaram, however, had a ''duty'' to protect her. Vivi's partner, Mr. 9, had no such obligation. And yet when faced with the chance to escape, leaving Vivi at risk, or attacking a man who has the Devil Fruit power of exploding, and even then only buying Vivi a few seconds at most, he takes the latter without hesitating, and immediately disappears in a ball of fire. [[spoiler:Naturally, being ''One Piece'', he is eventually shown to have survived.]] ---> '''Mr.9:''' Bye bye, baby.

* ''{{Scryed}}'' has one of these with Sherice, whose ability involves [[spoiler:sacrificing her life for someone else's]]. This is also an extreme example of IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy considering that [[spoiler: Ryuho is in love with someone else.]]

* [[spoiler: [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots The first Reinforce]]]] of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. Knowing full well that [[spoiler: her [[EnemyWithout corrupted self-defense program]]]] will come BackFromTheDead since her recovery system is already working hard to repair it, and that it has become impossible for her to restore it to its normal state, she willingly destroys herself to prevent any chance of it going on an [[OmnicidalManiac omnicidal rampage]] again.

** In the manga of this season, [[spoiler:Sailor Pluto does this. She [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique stops time itself]] in order to prevent the Black Moon Clan from destroying the world by bringing the two Silver Crystals together, knowing full well that she will die as a result. (Stopping time, as Neo Queen Serenity explains, is a taboo punishable by death.)]] She uses the same move in the anime when the Outer Senshi's helicopter is swarmed by daimons and explodes, buying time for Sailors Uranus and Neptune to escape.

*** And see the whole bloody time in SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas, two notable examples being Capricorn El Cid finally killing the four Dream Gods and saving Athena and the protagonists at the cost of his own life, and with Sagittarius Sisyphus' quite frankly terrifying HeroicSacrifice, in which he ripped out his own heart. Nice.

* 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 the disgusting Inui juice (knowing full well he'll pass out after doing so) in order to allow his team to move forward. He gets a sunset-y "death" scene, his partner Ohtori pulling a BigNo on him and everything. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny And it was hilarious]].

** Also, Sorata's reason for existing is to die in place of the one he loves, which turns out to be Arashi. *** [[spoiler:In the manga version, Nataku does this for Karen, and in the anime he does it to heal Fuuma.]]

** Also, Sorata's reason for existing is to die in place of the one he loves, which turns out to be Arashi. Arashi. In TheMovie he fills it by taking a massive blast from Fuuma and then fighting him until his body gives out [[spoiler: though Arashi is killed almost immediately afterwards]]; in the TV series, he does so by blasting half of Fuuma's body off ''while he's being impaled through the stomach by Fuuma's Shinken'' [[spoiler: (and while he fails to kill Fuuma thanks to Nataku, he ''does'' manage to convince the FaceHeelTurn-ed Arashi to return to the Dragons of the Heaven).]] *** [[spoiler:In the manga version, Nataku does this for to protect Karen, and in the anime he does it to heal Fuuma.]]Fuuma after Sorata, as said aboe, almost fried him alive. Both times, it lets Nataku fulfill his Wish - in the manga he wants to protect his mother-like figure (Karen), in the anime he wants to help his father-like figure (Fuuma)]]

** Although it illustrates the main article, it's somewhat subverted. Yusuke saves a small boy from a moving vehicle and dies. However, it turns out that not only was the boy going to ''survive'' being hit, but he actually would have been ''less'' injured than had Yusuke intervened. This turned his HeroicSacrifice into a SenselessSacrifice. Ironically, this worked out in Yusuke's favor as normally they would just give the boy's place in the afterlife to Yusuke. However, as the boy wouldn't have died and Fate hadn't expected Yusuke to intervene, there was no place for him, which lead to his RedemptionQuest. ** Humor aside, it was the intention of the act that counted, and earns Yusuke a chance to come back to life. The ''true'' sacrifice comes shortly after when Yusuke gives up this chance by failing the test to save his girlfriend's life. However, this proves to be enough to convince Koenma that Yusuke deserves to live, and he gets revived.
