* In the Creator/HPLovecraft story, "The Shunned House," the protagonist's uncle, Elihu Whipple, transforms into a rotting monster under the house's influence. It then takes the forms, in rapid succession, of all those who had lived and died in the house. As the monster is on the verge of disintegrating completely, it takes on, after an apparent struggle with itself, the kindly appearance of Whipple once again. "I like to think," says the protagonist, "that [my uncle] existed at that moment, and that he tried to bid me farewell."

** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E12TheDoctorFalls The Doctor Falls]]": What the Twelfth Doctor tries to do in lieu of regenerating. He doesn't want to go through the agony of becoming a new person all over again because he's at last content with the man he currently is. Instead of regenerating, he stops the process and allows himself to die. Only his companion, Bill, and her lover Heather have something to say about this. Moreover, while he still manages to stop it in the final scene of this story, [[Creator/DavidBradley his first incarnation]] suddenly arrives on the scene...

* In the first ''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead'', [[spoiler: Frank]] does this by turning on the morgue crematorium and climbing inside, having just seen [[spoiler: Freddy]] give in to the pain and become another brain-eating zombie. That he's doing this to try and preserve his humanity through his destruction is obvious; he solemnly removes his wedding ring, kisses it and hangs it up, then offers a short prayer to be forgiven before immolating himself.
