He shows up in ''Series/KamenRiderX'' no worse for the wear, though, and ''Manga/KamenRiderSpirits'' reveal that he did survive, but suffered amnesia for awhile.

*** Kamen Rider Tiger, after realizing how his ChronicBackstabbingDisorder made a mess of his life, jumps in front of a truck to safe a father and a little kid. Ironically, his ChronicBackstabbingDisorder came from his wish to become a hero and his twisted interpretation of what a hero is, is that a hero is someone who sacrifices what's most dear to them, which in this case were the people he cared about.



** Way before them, Riderman in ''Series/KamenRiderV3'' saves Japan from a nuke, apparently being taken with it, leading to V3 to declare, officially, that he was the fourth Kamen Rider. He shows up in ''Series/KamenRiderX'' no worse for the wear, though, and ''Manga/KamenRiderSpirits'' reveal that he did survive, but suffered amnesia for awhile.
** Subverted in a comical manner in ''Series/KamenRiderGaim.'' [[CampGay]] Kamen Rider Bravo throws himself in the line of fire to save Kamen Rider Zangetsu-Shin from an attack by the powerful Overlord Inves Deemushu, causing him to revert into his human form. It may seem dramatic with Bravo lying weakly in Zangetsu-Shin's arms, as if Bravo is going to succumb to his injuries in the arms of his lovely warrior in white. Then it turns comical as Zangetsu-Shin nonchalantly throws Bravo out of his arms and out of harm's way. He got better, though.

** In the Direct-to-DVD crossover special ''Kamen Rider Yongou'', released during ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'''s run, the evil organization Shocker uses a machine to trap the Kamen Riders in a GroundhogDayLoop, giving Shocker the time to strengthen their army. Each time one of the Riders dies, the loop resets. In the end, it is revealed Takumi from ''Kamen Rider 555'' keeps the loop active with his desire keep everyone he cares for alive, making him the anchor for the loops. In the original timeline, he was supposed to have died after the events of ''555'', but with Shocker's meddling of history, Takumi survived.

** In the GrandFinale, Rembrandt injects himself with the anti-Kromagg virus and jumps to his own Earth despite the seer's vision that anyone who did that would die. While his fate remains unknown, it's clear that, even if he dies, the virus has a chance to spread and free that Earth from the Kromaggs.

** "Summit" has an almost literal example when the sole survivors of a peace summit offer to kill themselves to prove their sincerity and ensure that the peace treaty they negotiated before terrorists murdered the other representative party was accepted.
