* {{Mekton}}'s Operation Rimfire has an exaggerated version of this trope.

* ''DaveBarry Does Japan'' describes a visit to a Japanese opera. The main character has lost the Sacred Incense Burner (don't ask). Deciding that suicide is the best option, he stabs himself and sings about it. For ''fifteen'' minutes. As Dave puts it, "I would have shouted 'Somebody stab him again!' if I knew how in Japanese."

* Roy Batty in ''Film/BladeRunner'', who uses his last operative moments to deliver one of film's (and cinema's) most defining {{Tear Jerker}}s.
-->'''Roy Batty:''' I've... Seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams... Glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those... Moments will be lost in time, like... Tears... In rain. Time... to die.

* ''The Man Who Would Be King'': [[spoiler: Sean Connery's Daniel Dravott,]] having posed as a god, is condemned to walk out to the middle of the bridge built in his own honor, and wait while it is cut, as his last friend watches. He goes out onto the bridge, stands there a moment looking out to the horizon, then yells to his captors, "Can't you ------s cut?!" Then, to pass the time, he sings "The Minstrel Boy," paired with the [[http://www.lutheran-hymnal.com/lyrics/tlh452.htm words of a Protestant hymn.]] Peachey joins him from the cliff's side in song, their voices combining into a ballad of courage and faith. And then the bridge is cut, and "like a penny-whirligig... it took him half an hour to fall."

* Very nearly done straight (it is, at any rate, a "final" speech) in the last episode of the '90s ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' animated series, where a mortally wounded Professor Xavier - just recently brought out of a coma as a side effect of trying to contact an alien race that might still be able to help him - delivers an individual poignant goodbye to every one of the X-Men present from what appears to be his deathbed.
