* Used so often, so lengthily and so absolutely ludicrously in the ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' series that it became a trademark of the series that all the bosses tell their entire life story before dying, and everyone complained when the enemies in the third game merely repeated their codenames a few times and then exploded.

** The other games play around with the concept, sometimes using it to full effect, sometimes not. That being said, as a game mechanic, they've never been taken out, and even got a kind of resurgence in length during AssassinsCreedIII.

* [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Anime/Hellsing/ Anime/Hellsing]] has an amazing one for The Major. On the ground, missing his left arm and leg, faced by Sir Integra and Seras, he still manages to give a speech both entirely true and giving The Major the [[spoiler: moral high ground when facing the protagonists of the story. keep in mind, he's a Nazi, so that is saying something.]]
-->[[spoiler: The Major: Deny it all you want. My humanity is not in question. I still have that one trait that puts us in ascendance even above the angels. It is my will that drives me. The vampires that you were so happy to keep in your employ...without the life blood of others to keep them going, they would shamble to a halt. If it's a monster you want, look no further than Alucard , and this little one, playing at immortality. Don't mention me in the same breath as that fraud. The moment I am propelled by my own unadulterated will, I become heir to something Alucard can only steal. Even if I were reduced to nothing more than a brain in a jar, synapses firing in a sea of pure thought... I am human just like you are. Within me rests a human soul...and a human's will, precious beyond all worth. He smiles at you in the form of a young girl, or pulls at your heartstrings in the form of a weary veteran. So many faces a monster has, and all of them stolen, all of them lies. I despise him. Every cell in my body called for his annihilation. So I destroyed his kingdom and cast him down into the dust. Fitting that it took a man with the trappings of a monster, to slay a monster with the trappings of a man. He was a casualty to my will. 'My enemy is not human. My enemy is less than a human.' Since the earliest dawning of mankind, this is the battlecry...it just happened to be more literal in my case. That battlecry...those thoughts are running through your thoughts right now, aren't they? I planted the seeds of this war half a century ago...now, show me what has blossomed.]]

* {{Mekton}}'s Operation Rimfire has an exaggerated version of this trope. The villain says a twenty-seven line speech before he dies, while his enemies, about ten or so mecha armed to the teeth surrounding him just standing still as he delivers it. [[{{Railroading}} And no, you can't pull a]] ShutUpHannibal, [[{{Railroading}} it goes against the rails]].

* ''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.
