* Most of the characters in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' die smiling; this is explained by the thing that all vampires (and a werewolf), as immortal beings, held only one desire: to die.

It makes a lasting impression as a [[ObiWanMoment pretty dignified]] [[FaceDeathWithDignity way to go]]. Usually reserved for the finales of TearJerker stories or the climax of a BittersweetEnding. See also LetThemDieHappy if the dying character is cheered up by well-meaning lies and ThanatosGambit if the character is content to die in order to achieve some objective. See also FinalFirstHug and LastKiss. Sometimes crosses with OutWithABang. Unless the body dissolves or is destroyed, usually results in PeacefulInDeath. Sometimes unredeemed villains die this way, but that is only so their corpses will continue to terrify you after they're gone.

** As well as [[spoiler:Shinji]], who, [[spoiler:while bleeding to death out of two point-blank gunshot wounds, not only sneers at his would-be killer, and asks why he looks so sad, since this is what he wanted, but stands up, walks a few feet, throws back his head, laughs, assures everyone that this is how it should be, and collapses]]. Much more of a tear-jerker than it sounds like.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' has a twisted variation with [[spoiler:Ghirahim. He laughs maniacally as Demise forcibly turns him into the anti-Master Sword]].
*** Another variation is made with [[spoiler:Zelda. A variation in the fact that she doesn't die, but she locks herself in a crystal to fall into a deep sleep for thousands of years, to keep [[BigBad Demise]] at bay - which could be considered similar to death. After Link promises to wake her up, you can see her [[TearfulSmile tearfully smile]] behind the crystal just before she falls asleep. She does, however, wake up later in the game]].
