* ''Film/BlackPanther2018'':
** Zuri takes responsibility for his role in N'Jobu's death and [[TakeMeInstead offers himself]] to Killmonger to keep him from murdering T'Challa. Unfortunately, Killmonger opts for killing them both instead.
** Killmonger's death is a combination of this and DefiantToTheEnd. He's offered the chance to be healed by T'Challa, but refuses, saying that all that's left for him is life imprisonment, and pulls out the spear stuck in him. As he bleeds to death, he calmly asks to be buried in the ocean, just like the many slaves who'd jumped from the ships to choose death over a life of bondage.
** Klaue subverts this hard, not by begging or getting afraid, but by simply cackling psychotically at this absurd turn of events.

** [[ArtificialIntelligence Epsilon/Church]] allows his consciousness to be once again broken into the A.I. Fragments, so they could better power the team's equipment and at least give his friends a fighting chance during their LastStand. In his last moment, [[TearJerker he depressingly leaves a final for his friends, saying that he will die not even knowing]] if his [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice]] even made a difference, but does it anyway.

** Killmonger's death is a combination of this and DefiantToTheEnd: offered the chance to be healed by T'Challa, he quietly compares himself to the black people captured in various slave trades who jumped to their deaths in the ocean rather than spend a life in bondage, before pulling out the spear T'Challa stabbed him with so he can bleed to death.

* In ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}'', the play begins in the aftermath of the defeat of an invasion of Scotland by forces from Norway and Ireland, joined by the rebel Scottish lord Macdonwald. Though he remains an off-screen character, Macdonwald is captured after the battle and executed. The messenger who reports his final moments is utterly moved by how dignified and accepting he was of his fate. [[spoiler: At the end of the play Macbeth himself realizes that he is going to die fighting MacDuff, the result of an Exact Words prophecy -- but instead of begging or lamenting it, decides to die fighting with a sword in his hand.]]

* ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'': At first, when Calpurnia pleads with Caesar not to go out of his home because of an ominously superstitious nightmare, he decides to humor her and stay home. Moments later, Decius Brutus gives Caesar a flattering interpretation of the bloody fountain dream, which makes Caesar even more resolved to attend the Senate meeting, in spite of the dangers awaiting him.
** This is a crucial part of Julius Caesar's fearless, DefiantToTheEnd philosophy:
-->'''Caesar''': What can be avoided, whose end is purposed by the mighty gods?\\
Yet Caesar shall go forth; for these predictions are to the world in general as to Caesar.\\
'''Calpurnia''': When beggars die, there are no comets seen; the heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.\\
'''Caesar''': Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.\\
Of all the wonders I have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear,\\
Seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come...\\
Caesar should be a beast without a heart if he should stay at home to-day for fear.\\
No, Caesar shall not; Danger knows full well that Caesar is more dangerous than he.\\
We are two lions littered in one day, And I the elder and more terrible,\\
And Caesar shall go forth.

* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': Isaac Mendez, an artist with the ability to paint the future, creates a series of paintings that show him being killed by Sylar. So what does he say when Sylar shows up at his door? "You're late." He continues to tell Sylar that neither of them [[YouCantFightFate can fight fate]], that he already saw Sylar being killed and is quite happy that he could be of use to the good guys after all the mistakes he made. He does so while having all his limbs impaled by ''paintbrushes''. That's right, Isaac Mendez is such a great artist, he can turn his own death into a Crowning Moment Of Awesome for himself.
-->'''Isaac''' (last words before having his skull opened): "I finally get to be a hero."

** In the first episode of Volume 2, Hiro's father Kaito is thrown off a building to his demise.

Hiro is eventually convinced and allows the murder to play out, but nonetheless takes advantage of the opportunity to find out [[YouKilledMyFather who killed Kaito]].

* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'':
** Jack Sparrow may be an ImmortalitySeeker and find any way he can to cheat death, but when he's trapped with no way out and he knows it, he doesn't face his end like a coward. Case in point: when he's at the Kraken's mercy near the end of ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest'', he simply quips "[[FacingTheBulletsOneLiner Hello, Beastie]]," and jumps right into its jaws, sword at the ready.
** Cutler Beckett in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd''. When he sees his ship is defeated he ignores all the canon blasts around him (which seem to hit everything but him) and accepts his fate unflinchingly as he walks slowly down some steps.
*** Though this may be more shock than stoicism. He's showing a ThousandYardStare at the time, and he starts his walk by muttering "Just good business". His flagship goes down without firing a shot in her own defense because he's too frozen to give the order to fire.
