* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Gin believes he's the only person capable of killing Aizen, and spends a century performing evil in Aizen's name just for the chance to kill him. When his moment comes, he fails because Aizen factored Gin's betrayal into his plans. As Gin dies, he expresses relief that he had the opportunity to apologise to Rangiku and finally acknowledges that the person who needs to defeat Aizen is Ichigo.

* In ''ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume'', rebellion leader Natalia turns herself in toward the beginning for execution, so that her troops will be spared. No matter which version of the chapter you're playing in, they end up being killed anyway, and her ally tries to rescue her. Whose side you picked determines whether he's successful or not.

* ''{{Film/Equilibrium}}''. Partridge is aware that he's been sense offending, carrying a Yeats book of poetry. [[DissonantSerenity He's cool, calm, composed. Constantly, even when faced with death. When Preston becomes suspicious and finds him in the church, he doesn't look up, doesn't bat an eyelid, totally aware that Preston is armed.]] He even goes so far as to ''read'' from one of Yeats famous poems, 'The Cloths Of Heaven'. He looks up, questioning everything the system stands for, hoping to get Preston to at least understand what's going on before he dies. [[spoiler: We find out later from Mary that he was her lover and he secretly fought for the Resistance]]. The way he says the line below describes how resilient he is, because he doesn't do anything to prevent his own oncoming death despite knowing what was coming for him. He's going to die fighting for a cause and he wants it to stay that way. If it means dying for your beliefs, he's in no denial.

* Salvatore "Sal" Tessio in ''Film/TheGodfather''. Surrounded by Corleone men, he understands what is going to happen next. He gives Tom a message to Michael that it was only business, makes a slow, token, halfhearted reach for his shoulder holster (which Willie Cicci takes away) and asks Tom to let him off the hook with a wry grin, as a final, very dark joke about his own demise.
