* Deconstructed in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', as [[spoiler:Church]] prepares to make one. Facing the sad truth that he will die never knowing if it made a difference. Pointing out how most stories forget to mention this.

** Sacrifices of this sort seem to be one of the only things that can get the eternally grumpy Emperor to actually and unconditionally respect someone, to the point of refusing to insult them in any way (which for this Emperor, is a fairly huge deal). Though he naturally does have (justifiedly) high standards: A GoThroughMe moment brought up mostly because a "lesser" human did it first and you didn't want to be upstaged just earns you posthumous scorn, and a StupidSacrifice where there were actual non-suicidal options that didn't involve self-destructing LostTechnology pisses him off outright.

Rather tellingly, Sanguinius who died giving the Emperor a chance to defeat Horus, is the only one of his sons who he doesn't insult at all.

** Later, Chiaki realizes Nagito's plan, creating a situation where the murderer couldn't be identified, was to get everyone except [[TheMole her]] executed. She urges everyone to vote for her as the killer, relying that Nagito's luck held out and that she's the one who accidentally killed him. She's right.

*** Epsilon realizing that the only way that he could run The Meta armor was to effectively do a hard reboot on himself, erasing all his memories (the core of what Epsilon was), allowing for the other fragments to expand and use the freed up capacity. In addition, in a message left behind, he muses on what it is like making such a sacrifice, knowing that there is no way to know if it even did any good. [[spoiler: To drive his point even further, the episode ends as he does this, so the audience also has no way to know if it did any good.]]
