* Towards the end of ''KingdomHearts 358/2 Days'', [[spoiler:Xion fulfills her programming and becomes a perfect replica of Sora. After Roxas kills her, though, Sora's memories fade away from her, and she spends her final moments as herself, lying in Roxas' arms.]]

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia'' plays this straight with [[spoiler: Hardin]], but the remake of ''Mystery of the Emblem'' has a particularly cruel twist on this trope: [[spoiler: Eremiah was an orphanage caretaker brainwashed by Gharnef into creating [[TykeBomb Tykebombs]]. After the party defeats her, Gharnef un-brainwashes her as she's dying ''just so she can re-live the most horrible memories of her former life in her last moments.'' Just in case you didn't realise he was a colossal dick before...]]

Added DiffLines:

** Most of [[spoiler:[[GreaterScopeVillain Anankos]]]]'s victims in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' get this after you put them out of their misery, including [[spoiler:[[BigBad Garon]]]] in ''Birthright'', [[spoiler:[[RivalTurnedEvil Takumi]]]] in ''Conquest'', [[spoiler:Scarlet, Arete, Mikoto, and Sumeragi]] in ''Revelation'', and [[spoiler:[[MadGod Anankos himself]]]] in the best ending of the ''Heirs of Fate'' DLC. [[spoiler:Garon]] is too far gone in ''Conquest'' and ''Revelation'', however, and [[spoiler:[[TheMole Gunter]]]] has a very close shave with this trope before he is brought back to his senses and manages to survive.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' episode "Retribution," the mad Captain Sawyer seems to regain his sanity when Wellard enters the cabin, intending to kill him so that he won't name either Hornblower or Kennedy as the man who pushed him. Sawyer confronts this calmly and admits that Wellard is worthy of respect. Though Wellard can't go through with it, the Spanish break in moments later and Sawyer stands side-by-side with Wellard, calling him a brave lad just before they're both shot down.
