* ''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.

* Eddard Stark of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is set up like this. He is facing death after a failed coup to remove the illegitimate Joffrey as king. Varys, whom he thought an ally, threatens his daughters into confessing guilt to stop war. He recants [[spoiler: but is executed anyway and dies a traitor]].

Varys, whom he thought an ally, threatens his daughters into confessing guilt to stop war. He recants [[spoiler: but is executed anyway and dies a traitor]]. It's ambiguous whether this is a {{Subversion}} (ie. whether or not he is actually a "moral victor") [[spoiler: especially since his family ends up getting scattered and slaughtered afterwards]], or if subsequent events prove that he was right all along as the characters who ''lack'' his honour don't really fare any better [[spoiler: were probably planning to kill him to begin with, and in certain cases were planning to engineer a civil war from the start regardless of what Ned personally did.]]

This is heavily reliant on, as Creator/JRRTolkien called it, the "Theory of Courage," the idea present in older iterations of NorseMythology that despite the foreknowledge or likelihood of failure, one must press on to do the moral thing for no better reason than the fact that you should.

* NorseMythology before Christians influenced it, when [[TheNothingAfterDeath There Was Nothing After Death]] and evil won in the end. Of course, it's not quite all there since there is nobody left to fight after Ragnarok. In later versions, it's played straight when the new world is reborn.
