* ''ErrantStory'' has a good example, as Sarine [[http://www.errantstory.com/2009-06-12/4169 does this]] [[http://www.errantstory.com/2009-06-17/4218 at length]] with the remains of her oldest friend Sarna, whom she has just killed in a fight (not exactly a [[DueltotheDeath Duel to the Death]], but close enough) she really, ''really'' didn't want to have.

* In Asian martial arts films there's a rather nasty move usually exercised by villains in which they cradle their opponent and proceed to break their spine (either over their knee or, alternately as seen in a BruceLee film) but simply crushing them.

* Invoked in one of ''TheWitcher's'' short stories, as a LastRequest of the killed. Subverted in that it is only to get the killer [[TakingYouWithMe close enough]].

* In ''FistOfTheNorthStar'', Rei's battle with Juda ends this way- Juda may have been a bastard, but hearing how his descent into madness was sparked by being unable to accept that Rei was the more talented and beautiful fighter, admiring him to the point of jealousy, perhaps even to the point where it seems Yuda might actually have been ''in love'' with Rei, is sobering. His final request is to die in Rei's arms. Even Rei is saddened by this revelation and outcome, and he doesn't deny Juda's request.
