* The heartbreaking nine-page diary of twelve-year-old Tanya Savicheva, in which she systematically recorded the deaths of her entire family, one death per page, during the Siege of Leningrad. The final entry reads, in a childish scrawl: "Savichevs died. Everyone died. Only Tanya is left." Tanya was eventually rescued, only to [[DownerEnding die age fourteen in an orphanage]].

* Well-known herpetologist Karl P. Schmidt did this in 1957, after being bitten by a small boomslang viper; he believed it wasn't large enough to be dangerous, so he did not take antivenin, but did type a running log of his symptoms through the night and into the next morning; he was found dead later that day.

--->'''VIking:''' I am the only one left now. I raise these stones to my wife, Astrid. May she forgive my sin. The day grows dark, and I sense the evil curse rising from the sea. I know now what the curse of Fenric seeks: the treasures from the Silk Lands in the east. I have heard the treasures whisper in my dreams. I have heard the magic words that will release great powers.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has ''lots''. Some of the most memorable:
** A journal found in Azuna written by the tauren Paladin Aponi Brightmane details how she and her comrades have fought the Burning Legion for days, only to fail. The final entry claims they've been captured and are about to be dragged through a portal to the Legion's hellish domain. (A subversion, as she still lives, and can be rescued and recruited.)
** In Sumar, a journal left by Arcanist Kel'danath, a Nightfallen mage, details his attempts to find a cure for the Nightfallen's condition. While he came very close to success, the Legion's initial invasion ruined his research, and the last entry suggests he is about to succumb to his addiction and become withered. (Which is exactly what happened; when the player actually find him, he is a mindless husk of what he once was. However, his work was not in vain, because the player can bring it to the other Nightfallen to continue and improve it.)
