* 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.

* Deconstructed in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''. Noah is under the impression that sacrificing himself to save everybody from an oncoming missile makes up for all the atrocities he put Yugi and his friends through.
