A kinkier variation of this is the "we're going to die tomorrow, and [[MustNotDieAVirgin I don't want to die as a virgin]]" mindset.

-->"You have no idea of how much I love you.... my beloved [[spoiler: Kunzite]]..."



* Played straight in ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', when [[spoiler: Seishirou]]'s last words to [[spoiler: Subaru as he was dying in his arms]] are... actually we never get to hear what they were, but you can take the obvious guess along with everyone else.

Played straight in ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', when the manga, where [[spoiler: Seishirou]]'s last words to [[spoiler: Subaru as he was dying in his arms]] are... actually we they're never get properly heard, but since [[spoiler: the Sakurazukamoris are destined to hear what be murdered by the person they were, but you love the most (and Seishirou had done this already [[MommyIssues to his mother Setsuka]])]], one can take the obvious guess along with everyone else.
** In the anime, [[spoiler: Sorata]] dies in the arms of [[spoiler: Arashi]] and his FamousLastWords have him reaffirming his love for her and begging her to live on.

* An interesting variation happens in the third book of ''Literature/TheElenium'', when Sparhawk and former-friend-turned-villain Martel have dueled to the death. Martel has only a few minutes left, and requests to say goodbye to Sephrenia, who taught them both. His dying declaration is of a familial sort of love for her and Sparhawk.

* Some ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' characters' death quotes do briefer versions of this, mainly in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia the Akaneia games]] where there's only one possible pairing for any given character if at all. It's also a recurring tendency for cases of [[LoveMakesYouEvil lovestruck antagonists]].

* In the ''FanFic/TamersForeverSeries'', [[spoiler: Takato has always known that Rika would kill him if he told her he loved her but he figures since he's dying anyway, he's got nothing to lose. A rare instance of this trope that actually ''[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming works]]'']].
* In the ''Film/StarTrek'' fanfic ''Fanfic/WrittenInTheStars'', Fem!Kirk spends most of the story trying not to fall in love with Spock. But by the time of ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', she has, but doesn't have the chance to tell him until she's dying in the reactor. What makes this confession different to most is that she connects with his mind and tells him by showing her the memories her counterpart showed her, of their Prime selves and the life they shared together in the original reality. It's a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and TearJerker all rolled into one.

* Subverted in the ''Beyond!'' miniseries. SpiderMan gets killed by Venom and dies proclaiming his love to Mary Jane...or so he thought. He's actually so delirious from his wounds that he mistook [[PrehensileHair Medusa]] for his wife. Medusa got the sentiment though, and was so upset that she very nearly executed Venom. [[spoiler: And further subverted in that it wasn't actually Spider-Man, and he wasn't actually dead.]]
* Happened in the Belgian comic ''Papyrus'', more exactly the issue ''Tears of the Giant''. [[spoiler: Papyrus gets one from a Hitite princess [[RescueRomance whom he saved at the beginning]], and who until then had been a massive {{Tsundere}} to him... before being kidnapped by some plotters who wanted her to her to spill out the secret of iron. When Papyrus found the girl, she was already dying after all the ColdBloodedTorture, and only managed to tell him her love and thank him for being there for her before [[DiedInYourArmsTonight dying in his embrace.]] Papyrus, understandably, had an HeroicBSOD at this, [[DownerEnding and the issue finished with him carrying the girl's lifeless body away]].]]
