* ''Manga/SevenSeeds'' has this occur with some of the deaths.
** In the Team Winter flashback, turns out that [[spoiler:Fuyuhi]] died while last smiling at [[spoiler:Aramaki]]. [[MindScrew Kind of]]. [[spoiler:The Fuyuhi that had been following Aramaki since Mitsuru's death was a grieving delusion of his, where he projected his lost friend onto a dog that he had rescued earlier. Nonetheless, the dog-Fuyuhi-illusion smiles before Aramaki realizes what was going on.]]
** During the ''Hail of Corn'' arc, [[spoiler:Mayu and Hyo]] manage this. Despite being trapped under rocks from a cave-in and slowly dying from their sustained injuries, they both smile when realizing that, while they aren't going to make it to the future, Koruri will make it just as they hoped she would.
** The ''Ryugu Shelter'' arc reveals that Hana's mother, Miho, died while smiling. A bout of attempted sabotage in the food storage results in the area beginning to be flooded and Miho notices that one of the doors is not shutting properly, so she [[HeroicSacrifice chooses to push the door closed, to save the rest of the shelter inhabitants]]. She is last seen smiling at her husband on the other side, while drowning in the flooded storage.

* Surprisingly averted in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker''. Not only does SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker not smile during his death but he even says "That's not funny. That's n-" before keeling over.
** Probably because the Joker isn't necessarily fond of [[MoralMyopia being the butt of a joke]] (his DCAU version especially not so).
** In the censored version, Joker dies via electrocution, and it's mentioned that he did indeed have a smile on his face.
** On the other hand he does laugh hysterically when the titular character of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm'' prevents his escaping a massive explosion. He survives, thanks to JokerImmunity, but at the moment it didn't seem like he had any means to get out alive.
*** His victims all die with a smile, although none of them had much of a choice.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobSquarepantsMovie'', this happens to [[spoiler:[=SpongeBob=] and Patrick when they [[DisneyDeath dry out]], knowing that even though they didn't get Neptune's crown, they at least made it to Shell City.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Severely depressed people may become unusually happy upon deciding to end their lives because they think that death is the only way out of their troubles. If this is the case for you, please seek help. There are plenty of alternative solutions to the problem like therapy, medication, exercise, asking for help from a trusted love one, etc. (note: death is a permanent solution to a temporary problem).
