* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': Bontu sells out the rest of the gods of Amonkhet, which shouldn't be surprising [[AmbitionIsEvil given her nature]], and promptly gets [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves killed for it]]. Though it's worded ambiguously, it seems like her final act with her dying breath (so to speak) is to set the not-quite-dead Hazoret, whom she had just helped defeat, free from the prison trapping her that Bontu had just created so that at least ''one'' god could survive to take revenge.

* ''{{Exalted}}'': By the time of the Usurpation, most of the Solar Exalted had gone [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity completely nanners]]. After being killed, most of them made their way down to the Underworld... where they found that [[PowerOfTheVoid Oblivion]] was maybe two steps away from eating the whole thing. They united, drove back Oblivion, then passed through Lethe and re-entered the cycle of reincarnation after atoning for their sins of hubris. At least... ''most'' of them did...

* In {{WebVideo/Jerma985}}'s '[=TF2=]: Bring On The Thundah!', Jerma and {{WebVideo/STAR_}}, both of them were phlogistinator pyros, were originally intended to take down the enemy teleporter at their spawn but then the enemy started to come out. Jerma wanted to hide from the enemy but STAR_ just stayed at the spawn door and using his phlog special crit power and Jerma followed suit. They ended up with a very effect double phlog crit chain spawn camp and Jerma realized what dicks they are for doing such tactics and only felt relief when he got killed.

* In ''Film/{{Gladiator}} facing his imminent death is what gets Emperor Marcus Aurelius to reassess his life and legacy in which he fears that he, "brought the sword. Nothing more." Setting him on the trajectory of getting a suitable successor to purge the corruption that's been allowed to fester in the senate and then give power back to them and by proxy the people. However, this is also a case that dovetails into being an example of RedemptionEqualsDeath given that it is these pursuits that wind up getting him killed earlier by his son Commodus instead of the oncoming one from natural causes.
