Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheGoblinEmperor'', Maia remembers the story of Hanevis Athmaza, who was horribly injured in protecting the emperor Beltanthiar III against Orava the Usurper, and died in his emperor's arms. Disturbingly enough, this story is implied to have inspired Maia to want to become one of the four ''nohecharei'' who are sworn to ''die'' before they would allow harm to come to the emperor. As unloved son, he saw this as a chance to win his father's (the emperor's) love.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/LittleNemoAdventuresInSlumberland'', the title character doesn't die in Princess Camille's arms, per say, for he's incapacitated beforehand after the knockback from shooting the Morning Rod at Nightmare King forces him off his flying bed and lands his head on a rock. When Princess Camille, Professor Genius, and Flip regain consciousness, Camille discovers Nemo, rushes to his side, and cradles him, pleading for him to wake up until she bursts into tears. Of course, it's not long before King Morpheus awakens him with the Morning Rod.

Compare with PietaPlagiarism, the pose characters generally find themselves in, CradlingYourKill, when a character dies in their killer's arms, and DeadlyHug, where the victim is killed ''during'' the embrace. Contrast IntimateHealing, where a wounded or ill character is ''less likely'' to die while in a loved one's arms. (Though strangely enough, ''intimacy'' is [[GetTheeToANunnery exactly what's being referenced]] by the Cutting Crew song.) May overlap with CradleOfLoneliness, especially if the body of a loved one is cradled long after their death.

* ''WeissKreuz'' gets some mileage out of this one: Aya gets to both Asami and Sena ''just'' in time for this, Sister Ruth dies in the arms of both Ken ''and'' Omi, Nagi catches Tot as Fafarello stabs her (she recovers) and has a nice FreakOut, and, most dramatically of all, Ouka Sakaki is shot as Omi embraces her, telling her [[TemptingFate they'll always be together]]...
