* Most antipsychotic drugs reduce symptoms of schizophrenia somewhat, but clozapine is the only one that ever really provides a cure. Unfortunately, it also causes side effects ranging from diabetes to agranulocytosis (severe loss of immune system function). Even though these are serious, many "super-responder" patients choose to risk death and remain on clozapine—electing to risk dying as themselves

* Happens to [[spoiler:King Candy]] in ''Disney/WreckItRalph'': though he is partially assimilated [[spoiler: King Candy/Turbo]], the BigBad of ''Disney/WreckItRalph''. The climax sees him merging with a [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Cy-Bug]], and being defeated by Ralph exploiting a piece of Cy-Bug programming, [[spoiler: namely, that they are programmed to always go towards bright lights, even if said bright light comes from an erupting volcano]]. He alternates between straight following the Cy-Bug programming and protesting, [[spoiler: with the shift being marked by a Cy-Bug, in change between his final moments [[spoiler:he is not King Candy, Candy disguise and his disguise, but Turbo, true appearance as Turbo]]. It's his true, protesting self that's in charge when [[spoiler: the identity he was trying to conceal.]]volcano vaporizes him]].

TheCorruption has taken hold of this character. Fully ahold, leaving no trace of the original. Not a time for DrivenToSuicide or ICannotSelfTerminate; there is not enough mind left. Often it's not even a matter of MercyKill -- you have to kill in self-defense.

Or ColdBloodedTorture or MindRape has utterly destroyed the mind. There is nothing left. Looming death may make MercyKill unnecessary -- but it may not.

** A variation in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' when Rodney comes down with "Second Childhood", basically advanced Alzheimer's. Ronon and Teyla want to take him to a particular location that will allow him to regain his identity long enough to say his goodbyes and die with dignity.

Ronon and Teyla want to take him to a particular location that will allow him to regain his identity long enough to say his goodbyes and die with dignity. Once they get there, Rodney immediately says "the hell with dying!" and is actually pissed off that they thought he'd be better off cognizant of his impending death. Of course, they eventually do find a way to remove the parasite from his brain.

* An example from ''RescueMe'' may apply, though it does not involve death. Chief Jerry Reilly's beloved wife is rapidly deteriorating due to Alzheimer's disease. For weeks, she's been calling him "Bud," her brother's name. After she tries to kill herself while he's out, he realizes that he can no longer care for her properly and commits her to a nursing home for Alzheimer's patients. After he says goodbye to her and begins walking away, she calls after him on the verge of tears, [[TearJerker "Jerry!"]]

* At the end of chapter 8 of ''YggdraUnion,'' [[spoiler:Gulcasa]], after losing everything and giving his body over to Brongaa, regains himself while dying and is even able to reach reconciliation (of a sort) with Yggdra. The scene is both [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming incredibly touching]] [[TearJerker and horribly sad]].
