* Played for BlackComedy in the ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' strip "Survival*"; a man lost in the woods is afraid of dying alone, so when he finds a skeleton lying on the ground, he curls and dies in its' arms.

* At the end of ''RoseGunsDays'', Richard, whose allies either betrayed him or are dead, ends up meeting with Philip Butler while he's escaping alone. The latter informs him that the mastermind behind the death of his sister and nephew wasn't the Chinese mafia, as he believed, but the major Gabriel Kaburaya. Richard goes the American army's HQ to kill Gabriel… and gets his chest full of lead in the ensuing duel. Butler then quietly shows up and kills Gabriel with the already dead Richard's gun, to make it seem it was his doing (he tried to use him as an assassin from the start). The whole scene has a tragic and crepuscular feel to it that makes Richard really pathetic, as he has literally nothing left and dies like a mere pawn. And in the same scene, Gabriel sort of counts too.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', Hayate notes in the introduction to Episode 9 that the thought of dying from her {{ill|Girl}}ness didn't scare her because she had been alone until the Wolkenritter came into their life, but now that they are depending on her, she wants to live and be there for them. Graham also suggests that if she were to be sealed away with the Book of Darkness, no one would have to mourn her.

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent "Heaven Sent"]], a WhatDoTheyFearEpisode, the Doctor is completely alone, trapped in what turns out to be his own confession dial, facing the possibility of this at the hands of the voiceless monster The Veil. Because he is desperate to escape in a way that ''won't'' require him to give a final confession about The Hybrid teased all season -- which the next episode ("Hell Bent") reveals is because he's hoping to find a way to save Clara Oswald, who was recently KilledOffForReal, and needs some kind of bargaining chip to do so -- he figures out a way to escape "the long way round". It requires him to die alone ''billions of times over'', each time reactivating the teleporter that brought him there and summoning a copy of his younger self to begin the ordeal of the dial again...

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', the sheer anonymity of [[NiceGuy Marco Bott]]'s death horrifies Jean - no one knows when or how he died, and until Jean identifies him he's just one of many nameless corpses. [[spoiler: In latter chapters, we see that he wasn't actually alone at his death, which makes it worse.]]

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations'' reveal that this is the fate of Altair, who seals himself and the Apple of Eden in the Masyaf library in order to protect the Apple. However before he does the deed he at least shares one final moment with his son Darim.

* ''Embrace of the Endless Ocean'' by AmonAmarth is about an escaped dying alone at sea when a storm hits him. Directly invokes this trope with the lyric "Father, I die alone".

* "Afterlife" by FrontLineAssembly seems to be about the last moments of a soldier dying on the battlefield. "No longing moments, no one goodbyes, what are we fighting for?", etc.
* "Cubicles" by MyChemicalRomance contains the line "I think I'll love to die alone."

* Narrowly avoided by Shizuo from ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}''. He is apparently shot twice by [[JerkAss Horada]] and left to bleed to death, alone in an alley, but [[MadeOfIron his natural resistance to pain]] saves him from this.
* This is the fate of any jinchuuriki captured by Akatsuki in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. Beaten into coma-like states, their beasts is torn from their bodies and they die alone and unmourned by their village. This is a big part of Naruto's motivation.
