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; LetThemDieHappy is when someone intentionally deceives someone so that they will do this. 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.
