** Fry does it yet ''again'' when the Earth is going to be destroyed by a solar flare and only 30,000 people max can fit on the escape ship: he sticks Leela's photo over his on the ticket and gives it to her, so she can get on the ship instead.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', after alerting them of their arrival and being imprisoned again, [[spoiler:Lapis Lazuli]] is coaxed by [[spoiler:[[ArcVillain Jasper]]]] to [[FusionDance fuse with her]] in order to get revenge on the Crystal Gems (the former for being imprisoned for possibly millennia, the latter out of anger for being defeated by [[spoiler:a fusion]]). To prevent Steven from being hurt again, [[spoiler:Lapis takes control of the fusion and drags them both into the ocean for (possibly) eternity]].

** When Steven and Lars [[spoiler: end up on Homeworld, they are suddenly attacked by shattering robonoids. Steven and the Off Colors are in severe danger, but since Lars doesn't have a gem, he's invisible to the robonoids. He uses this to his advantage as he starts [[CurbStompBattle beating them up]]. When there's only one left, he leaps on top of it and starts beating it with a pointed rock as it tries to throw him off. He jams the sharp end of the rock into its "eye", causing it to explode in mid-air. Lars gets shrapnel launched straight through his eye into his head, is thrown into a wall and falls thirty feet to the ground. Needless to say, he doesn't survive (at least not until Steven revives him).]]

** [[spoiler:After Aku decides to broadcast Jack's execution in an attempt to cower the world into submission, conveniently giving an explanation of Jack's mission in the process, it backfires, bringing an army of his allies down upon him, which is clearly a suicide mission ''and'' a MortonsFork. (Possibility One, they get crushed by Aku; Possibility Two, they succeed, rescue Jack, but will end with many of them dead after Jack slays Aku in the present; Possibility Three, they succeed in rescuing Jack and are erased from existence when he succeeds in the past. Clearly, the latter two are considered better than the alternative.)]]
** [[spoiler: Ashi does so too, aiding Jack in returning home by harnessing her father's powers, and as a result, undoes her birth and causes herself to be RetGone.]]

** "A Regular Show Epic Final Battle" has a major one: [[spoiler:Pops. At then end, he finally realizes how to end the endless cycle of fighting between him and Anti-Pops - by not fighting. Instead, he goes to his brother and hugs him, while flying them both into a star. As Mordecai and Rigby watch helplessly, Pops reassures them that this is a happy ending before he incinerates himself and Anti-Pops, saving the entire universe.]]

It's still a very tragic moment and if this wasn't Disney he might have never gotten his memory back.]]
