* This was one reason UsefulNotes/CharlesI attracted such acclaim after his execution, with the pamphlets that came out almost immediately only increasing the effect. He was mostly unimpressive physically and mentally unexceptional, and he had a perpetual nervous stammer. Until, that is, his trial, where he conducted himself with more assurance and dignity his opponents had expected and lost his stammer, and on his execution day met his face stoically, even asking for an extra shirt so that people would not mistake his shivering at the cold for fear.

* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'': [[spoiler:The entire human race, or at least those working and communicating with the EL project. Unlike most apocalyptic stories there is no mention of riots or the collapse of civilization. Whatever plague was killing humanity did so at a rate where basic services and food were still available for a while and the internet was still functional. Once it became clear that the human race was going extinct, the logs of the project team are filled with stories of love, of what they'll miss, and the hopes of what might come of the project. One even comments on how in the last days the entire world effectively joined online to send as much data as they could to the Archive to preserve as much knowledge as possible for whoever found it. When communications did start breaking down, the logs turned into goodbyes as staff members either committed suicide peacefully, left the facility to be with their loved ones in their last days, or in Alexandra's case [[HeroicSacrifice died at her workstation trying to complete the Talos project]]]].

* Part of the reason that even many ''[[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]]'' fans who disliked BaseBreaker AntiVillain Miko Miyazaki were saddened by her death was that she faced it with dignity, even though her attempt at HeroicSacrifice inadvertently caused Xykon's victory and she never said that she had done wrong.

* 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.]]

*In ''Theatre/TheLionInWinter'', as Henry II's sons are hiding in the cellar waiting for him to come and kill them, Richard the Lionheart says he won't go down hiding like a coward and will face their father when he arrives, knowing he will die. The cynical Geoffrey scoffs at this, asking what difference it makes what manner you die in. Richard counters that because you don't get to choose ''if'' you die, you only get to choose the manner you face it with, then yes, the manner is the only thing that matters.

* The final Music/DavidBowie album, ''Music/{{Blackstar}}'', is essentially him taking his impending death and turning it into one final album in the only way he knew how: writing awesome music.
* The song "A Sovereign Act" by Music/{{Cormorant}} invokes this trope, as it is about the [[https://public.health.oregon.gov/ProviderPartnerResources/EvaluationResearch/DeathwithDignityAct/Pages/index.aspx Death With Dignity Act]].

**The ship's Musicians played music to calm the passengers as the life boats were loaded and didn't stop until they had died. One eyewitness account said:
--->Many brave things were done that night, but none were more brave than those done by men playing minute after minute as the ship settled quietly lower and lower in the sea. The music they played served alike as their own immortal requiem and their right to be recalled on the scrolls of undying fame.
