* Inverted rather tragically in ''Literature/TheSagaOfDarrenShan'', with [[spoiler: Kurda Smahlt]]. After discovering that his friend is a traitor, Darren exposes the plot, and helps the vampires wipe out [[spoiler: Kurda]]'s allies... only for it to be revealed at the later trial that [[spoiler: Kurda]] was trying to save the vampires from the war that was destined to happen, that would wipe them all out. Darren comes to see his point of view, somewhat, but due to the vampires' HonorBeforeReason attitude, [[spoiler: Kurda is still seen as a traitor and absolute scum, completely dishonored. After Kurda's death, Darren is offered the throne that was to have been Kurda's, and Darren is regarded as a hero for his role in exposing the plot.]] Later on, several characters acknowledge the fact that [[spoiler: Kurda]] had good points that should have been listened to before it even came to that, but it's too little, too late.

** Nearly invoked in ''Discworld/SmallGods'' when Brutha is condemned to die by crucifixion on an iron turtle. Urn wants to rush the altar and save him, but Simony urges him to wait because if Brutha ''dies'', he'll become a martyr and the rebels can use him as a rallying cry. Urn is rather horrified and points out that this cold-blooded calculation is exactly the kind of thing the BigBad who ordered the execution would do.

** Prince Oberyn Martell intends to avenge the rape and murder of his sister Elia Martell by [[BloodKnight Ser Gregor Clegane]] "the Mountain that Rides", who also murdered Elia's infant son. [[spoiler:He takes Tyrion Lannister's side in a trial by combat against the Mountain and wounds Gregor, but delays in killing them as he wants a confession that the Mountain performed the murder, and is killed when the Mountain smashes his skull. However, in a way Oberyn still succeeds as he coated his spear with poison he treated to work slowly, leading to the Mountain spending weeks dying in agony.]]
** Davos Seaworth goes to White Harbor to convince the Manderlys to fight for Stannis, but is arrested and sentenced to execution. [[spoiler:Then subverted, Lord Wyman Manderly executes a common criminal in Davos' place and tells Davos he had to work secretly as his son Wylis Manderly was a prisoner. When they are returned he reveals his plans to Davos to restore the Starks.]]

** [[spoiler: Rei's]] death as well. His injuries at the hands of Raoh leaves him with three days before dying horribly, which he uses to hunt down and kill his sworn enemy, before wandering off to die alone so no one will see the carnage.

* The obscure, semi-canonical (Bradbury was on the dev team), text-adventure sequel to ''{{Fahrenheit451}}''. Guy manages to break into the Library and find Clarisse (who apparently faked her death at the end of the book), who has stolen a monumental stash of microcassettes containing the contents of the New York Public Library. They lock themselves in a transmitter room long enough to upload the cassettes' content to the Undreground's archives all over the world. They finish their upload, but don't have time to escape when the Firemen bust in and immolate

*** You spend a few generations getting your liver pecked out by an eagle on a daily basis just for giving humans the ability to cook meat and keep warm- I think he qualifies
* Jesus Christ. According to Literature/TheBible, dying for humanity was his entire ''raison d'etre.''

qualifies.
* Jesus Christ. According to Literature/TheBible, dying for humanity was his entire ''raison d'etre.'''' He only doubts his cause ''once'', praying after the Last Supper at Gethsmane to God, asking if there is any way for events to transpire differently, then concluding that God knows best (Mark 14:36).

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'': Jonathan Joestar's death. During his seemly happy ending, he's ambushed by Dio's servere head shooting eye laser at his throat. Despite dying, he uses his remaining ripple power to take down his nemesis. It works; Jojo's effort saves Erina, prevents a ship full of zombies from reaching America, and puts Dio's reign down for at least a century, at which point Jonathan is considered a hero and his even stronger decendants are there to carry on his legacy.
