** Though it should be noted that Nora was slowly dying from a magical illness that didn't have a cure and Mary didn't want to live without her and they also crashed the car to destroy two magical objects that the villain was using to put vampires in a magical hell so their deaths can be seen as a HeroicSacrifice.

* ''Manga/{{X1999}}'' has this at the core of the story. Kamui's mother Tohru and Fuuma and Kotori's mother Saya were lesbian lovers, but in order to save Tohru's life Saya and her RomanticRunnerUp Kyougo Monou agreed to get married, in order to take Tohru's place and "give birth" to the holy sword (read: explode into a bunch of bloody pieces). Tohru survived, but she took off with her son Kamui [[GuiltComplex because she felt too guilty for this]]; later, she died by bursting into flames to protect Kamui or more exactly, by becoming a HumanSacrifice of sorts, burning herself up to slow the global warming.

* Lucy bites it at the end of ''Film/HighArt''.
* ''Film/{{Cruising}}'' is also a serial killer stalking New York City's gay leather subculture, and Al Pacino going undercover to stop this. In contrast to the acres of dead sexually active perverts, Al's neighbor, Ted, is offered up as a contrast - he has a steady boyfriend and hates the idea of cruising. And he dies, too.
* The titular funeral in ''Film/FourWeddingsAndAFuneral'' is for one half of a gay couple. The eulogy delivered got the main character thinking about love and marriage, setting up the climax. (The other half of the gay couple survived and eventually found someone new.)

* ''Franchise/StargateVerse'':
** Captain Alicia Vega was supposed to be the first canonically gay character in the Stargate-verse, which had a respectable reputation in real life for the diversity of its cast and characters, but had yet to feature an out character. She was introduced in the first episode of season five of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' and was heralded as a new recurring character, but almost all her scenes from her introductory episode were deleted for pacing reasons, [[HideYourLesbians including the scene where her sexuality was hinted]]. The producers then decided her character did not fit the series as well as they liked, and she was killed in her second appearance.

* Sexual exploration and awakening are key themes of ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' and Frank N. Furter is the most brazenly sexual and overtly gay character in the cast. Though several characters die throughout the story, it is his death that forms the climax of the show. He is also a murderer, kidnapper and seducer (albeit a hugely charismatic one), so the Depraved Homosexual trope comes into play here too.
* This seems to be a favorite trope of Tennessee Williams, much of the anguish motivating the protagonists of his two most famous plays, ''Theatre/AStreetcarNamedDesire'' and ''CatOnAHotTinRoof'' revolves around gay men who commit suicide.

* Surprisingly subverted in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' (That is, if [[HideYourLesbians you managed to notice it at all]]), especially since this is a show that is ''not'' [[NeverSayDie afraid to say "die"]]. Maggie Sawyer is blown out of her car during an attack by Intergang, and the next shot has her badly burned and motionless beneath a crushing pile of rubble, ''without'' [[EyeAwaken moving her eyes]] or [[FingerTwitchingRevival her fingers]]. Dan Turpin even calls the attackers "murderers" as he screams at them, so everything seems to be indicating that she [[KilledOffForReal is really dead]]... [[NotQuiteDead except she is alive]], and she returns later on in this and future episodes. In fact, her recovery is the first ([[HideYourLesbians and only]]) appearance of her girlfriend in the series... and ''Turpin'' is later KilledOffForReal.
** Thus making it an outright ''[[InvertedTrope inversion]]''.

** Then eventually played straight with Root, who gets in the way of a stray bullet to [[HeroicSacrifice save Harold]]. It should be noted that the Machine takes on her voice and personality as a way to honor her which means Root is technically reborn as the Machine and she makes an appearance in the series finale.

* In ''ComicBook/SalvationRun'': Monsieur Mallah and the Brain, a... talking gorilla with a gun and a French accent and an immobile [[BrainInAJar brain in a little chamber thing]] that allows him to talk. Mallah got into a fight with Gorilla Grodd after the latter was offended at the suggestion that they're at all similar. Despite being armed, Mallah lost, and was beaten to death with ''The Brain'', who likewise expired. And that was the ''second'' time they died: the first was being blown to smithereens the instant they confessed their love for each other.
