** In The Reichenbach Fall, [[spoiler:Moriarty issues Sherlock an ultimatum: commit suicide and be remembered as a fraud, or doom his three closest friends to death by sniper. Sherlock manages to fake his death convincingly enough to both call off the snipers and walk away. However, the public disgrace remains, and he spends the next two years in exile to avoid further endangering his friends.]]
** In His Last Vow, [[spoiler:the only way to stop Magnusson from blackmailing Mary Watson is to kill him. Acting alone, Sherlock shoots Magnusson in front of multiple credible witnesses so that John cannot possibly be accused of the murder, knowing that he is risking arrest at best and a virtual death sentence at worst.]]

* In ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'', Richard finally meets his biological father [[spoiler:Panis Rahl]]. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:Panis]] and Zedd don't get along, since [[spoiler:Panis]] killed Zedd's father long ago (to be fair, though, [[spoiler:Zedd's father had been trying to kill Panis's infant son Darken]]). Near the end of the episode, the group is attacked by Sister of the Dark, and one of them hurls her Dacra (a large shuriken) at Zedd, whose back is turned. [[spoiler:Panis]] calmly takes a step, [[TakingTheBullet interposing himself]], and receives a fatal wound. He's able to make amends with Zedd and Richard before expiring.

** In the Season 2 finale, [[spoiler:Barry creates a Time Remnant of himself in order to stop Zoom from destroying TheMultiverse. While Barry fights Zoom, Barry's Remnant runs faster than his body can handle in order to create a feedback loop on Zoom's device. His body disintegrates from the stress, as the Remnant screams in agony, but the machine is stopped. In an unusual departure from the ExpendableClone trope, everyone, including Barry, honor the Remnant for his sacrifice]].
** In a Season 3 episode, Barry heads into the Speed Force in order to [[spoiler:take Wally's place in the prison]]. However, the Speed Force is having none of that, telling him that it's high time he stopped blaming himself and took responsibility for the problems he'd caused. [[spoiler:Jay ends up taking Wally's place until such time as Barry can put Savitar back in prison]].

** In the Season 2 finale, [[spoiler:all the remaining Legends choose to travel back to 1916, crossing their own timeline, in order to save the reality from Thawne's manipulation. They know that, by doing that, they themselves become Time Aberrations and will disappear upon the success of their task. All but Future!Sara end up dying in different manner (with Future!Jax taking an arrow for Past!Stein), though, and Future!Sara vanishes with a smile on her face after the Black Flash kills Thawne]].

** Sam tries to do this in one episode, when he's captured by a group of mercenaries, who want to send a photo of him to Michael. Sam makes a weird gesture that Michael recognizes from another photo of him and Sam and realizes Sam is trying to tell him not to come for him, knowing it's a trap. Naturally, Michael isn't about to let Sam die and manages to rescue him.

** She also pulls one in the alternate reality episode ''The Last Man'' where the 'Phoenix' is critically damaged in a battle with 3 hive ships. With most of the systems offline, she beams the remaining crew down to the nearby planet, then rams the Phoenix into the nearest of the Hive ships, destroying both vessels, and with the blast destroying the other 2 hive ships.

** During Apophis's attack on Earth in the early seasons, Bra'tac's plan was for him and a chosen few to pilot their Death Gliders and attack Apophis's ship. They hoped that Apophis would, naturally, assume that his son Klorel was trying to usurp power (a common practice among the Goa'uld) and withdraw, saving Earth, while fully expecting to be blown out of space for their trouble. When SG-1 shows up and comes up with an alternative plan, he still plans to die.
---> '''Col. O'Neill:''' I think what the Captain's asking is, "What now?"
---> '''Bra'tac:''' Now we die.
---> '''Col. O'Neill:''' Well, that's a bad plan.

* In ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' AlternateRealityEpisode "Vegas", Sheppard takes the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Wraith]]'s cash, quits his job, and leaves to live the life of a rich man (or lose it all in the nearest casino). However, on the way, he has a change of heart and manages to find the Wraith and radio his location in time for the alien to be destroyed by an airstrike before he can call in the others. Unfortunately, he himself is shot in the process and is shown bleeding severely in the middle of nowhere.

** In the GrandFinale, Sheppard is fully prepared to do this, strapping a nuke to his F-302 and flying it into the Super-Hive in order to detonate it inside, as the ship is too damn tough for any weapon to penetrate it from the outside (even the vaunted Asgard beams). Luckily for him, the rest of his team ends up aboard the ship on a similar mission and he uses a timer to detonate the nuke instead. Ronon does die heroically during the mission... but the Wraith [[HealingHands bring him back to life]] in order to interrogate him.
