Ray decides he doesn't mind dying for a good cause and continues rigging the device. [[spoiler:He's knocked out by Mick, who has grown to grudgingly respect Ray and intends to take his place; when Leo finds out, he comes back, knocks Mick out in turn, and ends up being the one who blows up with the Oculus]]. He also gives an awesome PreMortemOneLiner:

** 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.

** "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. All but one shoot themselves, but one refuses to die by a weapon of war and electrocutes himself instead.

* Writers must love writing this trope for ChronicallyKilledActor Creator/JamieBamber. Aside from Archie Kennedy, Tony Dewhurst (the very first of his characters to be killed off) was shot and killed trying to protect TheScarletPimpernel from being gunned down (adding insult to injury is that Dewhurst ''lived'' throughout the series of books the miniseries is based on), and the most recent one, DS Matt Devlin of ''Series/LawAndOrderUK'' was shot protecting his friend Alesha Philips (along with the young witness in their case) from a hail of gunfire.

** The Doctor in general tends to go out with a bang: most of his regenerations were heroic sacrifices of some kind or another. Honourable mentions go to Three (walks into a radiation-drenched cave to confront the Great One), Four (unplugs a cable with an effort that throws him off a tower and incidentally saves the Universe) and possibly Eight ([[spoiler:purposefully abandoning his identity to create a regeneration capable of ending the time War]]).\\\
