His army is routed, but the Romans are unable to [[NeverFoundTheBody recover his body]]. [[spoiler:He is carried away by a few of his allies, after defeating the BigBad in personal combat, and dies surrounded by friends. The survivors made up of a few fighters and most of the non-fighters then escape to freedom.]]

* Pulled off well in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII: CrisisCore''. Zack Fair dies in a heroic LastStand against the corporate army that has been hunting him down like a dog, and while he doesn't even come close to achieving his goals, his death empowers the guy who eventually overthrows Shinra.
