* In ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', [[AxCrazy Ophelia]] has just [[OneWingedAngel awakened]] and has gone full blown psycho villain ([[SarcasmMode as if she wasn't before]]), and pretty much forgets why she became a claymore in the first place. Then she see's her reflection and realizes the monster she's become, and goads Clare into killing her. Until the final blow, she remembers her late brother who sacrificed himself to save her, and her reason for taking up the sword. Just before dying she tells Clare to fulfill her original goal of vengeance to kill Priscilla, and tearfully welcomes death to be reunited with her brother.

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' Dark World Arc, this happens with ''Discord''. Though in this case, its more 'Death Permits Redemption'. After being mortally wounded by his sister Rancor, he's confronted by the Dark World Mane Cast on his deathbed. Normally, any attempt on his part to help the heroes would [[VillainOverride overwritten by]] [[BiggerBad Nightmare Paradox]] to keep him 'in character', not allowing him to act on the HeelRealization he had long ago. However, because she doesn't have any "footage" of him dying this way, he's able to pass on his memories to Twilight via her Memory Spell, allowing her to finally break free of the GroundhogDayLoop and have a chance to stop Paradox. That it was a HeelFaceTurn is confirmed when we see him in the afterlife, where he's sent apology letters to Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy for what he's done to them.

* Subverted in ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'' when the Emperor--the mirror universe version of Captain Georgiou--offers to buy Michael time to escape and go down guns blazing. Michael manages to grab her into the transporter beam instead, but the Emperor isn't remotely pleased to be taken from her DyingMomentOfAwesome. Nor, as she points out later, is this a way for Michael to atone for not saving Captain Georgiou because they are ''not'' the same person and the Emperor has no intention of giving up her ruthless, authoritarian, xenophobic ways.

* ''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.
