* One episode of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' has a CharacterOfTheWeek, a terminally ill patient who's projected life expectancy was, at best, barely a full day. J.D. and Turk, the patient's attending physician and surgeon, are quickly reminded of their own mortality and fear death much like the patient. However, the three of them spend the last few hours having a quiet, philosophical conversation on the matter, ending with the patient rolling over to take a nap. This is after J.D. has informed him that his body will gradually become more fatigued until he falls asleep, never to wake up again. The patient is sober but extremely calm, even saying he'll see J.D. and Turk when he wakes up, even though all three of them know that's not going to happen.

* Franchise/TheElderScrolls:
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', a House Redoran quest has you convincing another member of the house to do this via a duel to the death in the arena. He will almost certainly die (unless you aid him from a distance.)
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'': At the beginning of the game, Emperor Uriel Septim VII who from the intro knows his death is coming. Even as his guards try to smuggle him out and save him, he knows they [[YouCantFightFate Can't Fight Fate]], so his last moments are spent giving instructions to the PC so that he might avert the consequences his death will have.
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', when you encounter [[spoiler:Emperor Titus Mede II]] in the finale of the Dark Brotherhood quest, he tells you that he's long since accepted his fate, talks to you in a calm and friendly manner and is completely unimpressed by you trying to intimidate him. The only thing he asks of you is to kill the person who ordered the contract on him and he only asks you to merely consider it. Of course, this scene is something of a callback to the one from Oblivion above.
** Also from ''Skyrim'', there's this gem, [[spoiler:from [[RebelLeader Ulfric Stormcloak]]]]:
