* In the penultimate episode of ''TigerAndBunny'', [[spoiler:Kotetsu pulls a HeroicSacrifice to destroy H-10]] that's very similar to Goku's in the battle against Raditz. [[spoiler: It doesn't stick, however - it's revealed in the finale that he just passed out from the pain.]]

** Not to mention [[spoiler: Armin]], who sacrifices himself when fighting [[spoiler: the Colossal Titan]] so that Eren can win. [[spoiler: [[CallBack Call backs]] are made to earlier in the series when he expresses his dream to see the ocean, and when he says that those who cannot throw anything away cannot change anything themselves. Bertolt expresses shock that Armin's final act with his brilliant mind was a self-sacrificial one, and Eren says that Armin was braver than any of them, after having cut Bertolt out of the Colossal Titan's nape.]] His death was not in vain.

* If Endou Mamoru from ''InazumaEleven'' is in [[HeroicBSOD his down time]] or if [[CurbStompBattle things goes out of control]] during a soccer match, expect the rest of his team to cover him and take some (usually powerful) shots for him just to pull their captain back to a fight. The shots sometimes even knock them out cold.

* [[spoiler: Uni and Gamma]], to revive the dead Arcobaleno in ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''.
* [[spoiler: The death of Rin's mother Aki ]] in ''Kodomo no Jikan'' technically qualifies as this. [[spoiler: She has lung cancer, but decides the money for expensive treatment to prolongue her life for a short while would be better used to raise Rin as well as possible. She hides it as long as possible; by the time it becomes inescapably noticeable, it's too far gone, and Aki herself dies a relatively quick wasting death.]]

** Robin ''[[SubvertedTrope tried]]'' to do this, offering her life to [=CP9=] in order to protect the crew from a Buster Call. The rest of them decided "screw that" and proceeded to rescue her by assembling a makeshift army, raiding one of the most secure islands in the world, ''declaring war on the entire world'', and defeating the world's deadliest assassins.

* The basic premise of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', wherein the Fourth Hokage gave his life to seal the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox into the titular character. [[spoiler:Said sacrifice was later noted to involve his wife, Kushina Uzumaki, and their sacrifice had a much stronger reason than simply protecting the village.]]

* The finale for ''Manga/NurseAngelRirikaSOS'' has [[spoiler:Ririka]] do one of these on her 11th birthday. She learns that the [[spoiler:Flower Of Life is essentially within herself]] and that the only way to [[spoiler:stop Dark Joker from killing everything]] is to sacrifice herself. [[spoiler:Subverted as the final shot is her opening her eyes, showing that she somehow survived. It's ambiguous if her peers still remember her existence though]].

*** And see the whole bloody time in SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas, two notable examples being Capricorn El Cid finally killing the four Dream Gods and saving Sasha/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.

** [[BoisterousBruiser Might Guy]] attempted this by opening all eight chakra gates (huge temporary power boost at the cost of dying in minutes) to get strong enough to fight off [[BigBad Madara]] until the main characters could get in shape to take him down. He actually would have killed Madara for good too, if it wasn't for his practical {{Immortality}}. Eventually subverted, since [[spoiler:one of the abilities Naruto got from his power up allowed him to stop Guy from dying]].
*** Guy's father, Dai, went out with the same eight gates technique Guy used, saving his son and his team. No subversion for him though.

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', [[spoiler:Ange Ushiromiya]] does a spectacular HeroicSacrifice after Battler goes through an epic HeroicBSOD. In order to restore his faith in truth besides red text, she [[spoiler:grabs him from behind so that he can't see her and declares her identity, thus breaking the rule that she could only exist in the past as long as Battler didn't know who she was]]. She then proceeds to beg him to continue the game and [[spoiler:come home to her... as her body is being torn apart. Even when he comes home, it won't be to her, since YouCantFightFate, but another her who doesn't have to experience the future without him]].

* Subverted by Ryoko in ''[[TenchiMuyo Tenchi Universe]]'', albeit with a particularly sadistic flare on the part of the writers. Having failed to convince Tenchi to abandon Ayeka to her fate and run away with her instead of heading into a seemingly hopeless battle with Kagato, Ryoko dedicates herself to making sure Tenchi arrives there alive. An elaborate space battle follows as the space pirate does anything and everything in her power to accomplish this. Only she's still grievously injured from her previous attack on Kagato, and the strain for her to just stand upright is noted by at least three characters (neither of whom tell Tenchi, naturally). After dropping Tenchi off at the palace, Ryoko reminisces about how the previous events have been really fun, even if it's just her and Ryo-Ohki again. She then closes her eyes, her arm slips off the armrest limply (complete with blood flowing down along it), and her head slumps forward with a small smile on her face. Ryo-Ohki presumably tries to wake her with her yowling, and the scene fades to black with one particularly mournful sounding howl. This continues into the wrap up episode, where Tenchi notes that [[NeverFoundTheBody no one had seen or heard from Ryoko]] since that battle, and includes an AntagonistInMourning moment with Ryoko's rival, Nagi to boot. All this culminates with [[spoiler:Ryoko popping up, none the worse for wear, in the last ten minutes of the series, ready to try again to win Tenchi's heart. No explanation as to how she survived is given.]]

* Not death, but still a pretty big price to pay: in ''MahouSenseiNegima'', Tosaka tries to blackmail Negi into being his slave. Realizing that this would screw all the other girls, [[TheWoobie Ako]], of all people, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome offers to be Tosaka's slave for life, as well as forfeiting any rights she has, if he leaves Negi alone.]] [[spoiler:Fortunately, Tosaka is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, and just forks over the evidence.]] He still doesn't like her afterwards though.
