* The original ''[[Film/{{Gojira}} Godzilla]]'' has Doctor Serizawa using his [[AppliedPhlebotinum Oxygen Destroyer]] to kill the titular monster, but, fearing that it will become weaponized by governments, destroys all his notes and allows himself to be killed by it as well, destroying the knowledge of its creation forever. Unfortunately, some of the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' continuities imply that it was a SenselessSacrifice by having Godzilla regenerate his whole body.

** The original sacrifice in ''Wrath of Khan'' is [[InvertedTrope inverted]] in StarTrekIntoDarkness (which also features Khan as the main villain), down to some of the dialogue being lifted whole cloth. Kirk is the one to enter the warp core to make repairs while Spock is forced to watch his friend die helplessly. In this case it hits Spock's BerserkButton.
* ''Franchise/StarWars IV: Film/ANewHope'': Obi-wan raises his lightsaber and allows Vader to kill him (which, as most people believe, he actually ''doesn't''---the act of allowing Vader to kill him makes him disapear and become one with the force) so that Luke will leave immediately instead of waiting for him.

* In ''Film/{{Suffragette}}'', Emmeline Pankhurst admits to and goes to prison for the destruction of an (empty) manor house by the group of suffragists the protagonist Maud belongs to. It is not clear whether she was involved in planning the attack, but it is obvious that she was not involved in carrying it out. The government officials complain about not being able to arrest the real culprits.

** In ''Film/TheAvengers'', [[spoiler: Tony]] sacrifices himself by catching the nuke headed for Manhattan and flying it out into space through the wormhole, fully expecting to be trapped there and die, after Steve warned him it was a [[SuicideMission "one-way trip"]]. He survives, but only due to luck he loses consciousness and plummets back through the wormhole just before it closes. Also a CallBack to his argument with Steve earlier in the film, when the latter accused him of being incapable of sacrificing himself for someone else.
