** "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 in 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.]]

* [[spoiler:Aaarrrgghh!!!]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}} [[spoiler:protected Toby from Angor Rot's Creeper Sun knife, getting turned into stone in the process. This comes off as even more of gut-puncher, because Aaarrrgghh was already suffering from an ever growing wound made by a nick from said knife earlier. His days were already numbered, but everyone, cast and audience alike, assumed that there'd be more time for him, only for that bit of "security" to get yanked away. This sacrifice is also the catalyst that convinces Jim to head to the Darklands alone.]]

* ''{{Chaotic}}'', [[spoiler:[[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Tangath Toborn]]]]. ''Twice''. Granted, if you're going to go, the way he did so was [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome incredibly awe-inspiring]], and he'd be the one [[AnimalStereotypes brave and heroic enough]] to do it. But for a show where they NeverSayDie and DeathIsCheap...and [[TearJerker his final moments and the memorial and monument]] he received...

* In the season 1 finale of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', [[spoiler: Princess Yue sacrifices herself to revive the Moon Spirit, which had been killed by Admiral Zhao. She then becomes the new Moon Spirit. Though in this case she had been living on borrowed time her entire life, as the Moon Spirit had shared some of its life energy to prevent her from being stillborn, and she simply gave it back.]]
** Also, at the end of season 2, [[spoiler: Iroh stays behind in the caverns fighting Zuko, Azula, and all of the Dai Li to buy time to allow Aang and Katara to escape to safety, even though he knew he couldn't escape himself.]]

** This is generally how [[EleventhHourSuperpower Enchantix]] is earned in the third season. To earn it, one must protect someone from their planet[[note]] Or in one case ''the entire universe'' [[/note]], usually at great risk to themselves. The one exception, Bloom did it through [[TheDeterminator sheer force of will]], and it turns out [[DeconstructedTrope it's incomplete]] because it wasn't gained through a sacrifice. This lasts until she revives her planet at the end of ''[[TheMovie The Secret of the Lost Kingdom]]''.

** [[spoiler: Zak himself]] later in that same episode: he lets [[spoiler: Argost suck the Kur power out of him, knowing the process will kill him, like it killed [[EvilCounterpart Zak Monday]], because [[CallBack he figured out]] "matter and antimatter don't play well together"]]. He even [[JustBetweenYouAndMe gives a lengthy speech]] explaining this, knowing [[spoiler: Argost is inside a sound-proof barrier and can't hear him.]] He's [[NeverSayDie "gone"]] for a couple of minutes, but luckily [[IGotBetter gets better]].
