* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': Near the end of season three, Crichton plots to destroy Scorpius's Command Carrier in order to stop the Wormhole Weapons project. The plan is successful, executed in such a manner that the ship collapses in on itself, thus allowing the majority of the crew to escape. Crichton then encounters Scorpius in the hangar, where Scorpius laments the destruction of his life's work, and his fears of the pending conflict with the Scarrans. When Crichton tells him that if he's going to leave now would be the time, Scorpius's remarks invoke this trope. Of course he survives, but it's the one time in the entire series we see Scorpius well and truly ''defeated''.

* In ''Disney/ReturnToNeverLand'', when a giant octopus is about to sink Captain Hook's ship, he begs Peter Pan to save him from drowning, to which Peter Pan mockingly answers: "You know the rules, Hook! A good captain ''always'' goes down with his ship!". Captain Hook's reply? "I DON'T WANNA BE A GOOD CAPTAIN!".

** This was especially common in Japan because they had learned their naval traditions from Britain, but through subtle translation difficulties, they believed the British tradition was that the Captain ought to insist on staying aboard and drowning if his ship is sunk. This was readily accepted because it fit the Samurai mentality and the ''bushido'' code so well. They even had a particular phrase you'll see used to describe it often: "share the ship's fate".

Unfortunately for Imperial Japan, this practice might have killed a lot of incompetent commanders, but it also killed plenty of competent but unlucky ones.

* Notably ''not'' a prominent tradition in the US Navy. A captain who abandons ship prematurely is labeled a coward, and one that abandons ship before taking every reasonable effort to see to the safety of his crew is likely to be labeled a DirtyCoward. But, once the crew is safely evacuated, the captain should at least make an effort to abandon ship himself. If the captain goes down with his ship, ''both'' need to be replaced. Ships are more expensive to replace, but a good Captain takes considerably longer to make.

Ships are more expensive to replace, but a good Captain takes considerably longer to make. Additionally, Naval regulations clearly state that the Captain is still responsible for leading his crew even after the ship is lost, whether that means keeping them alive while awaiting rescue or doing the same in captivity if they get picked up by the enemy.

** In ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', Captain Kirk is the last person to eject from the ship, using an EscapePod launched from the bridge itself, presumably with this trope in mind as they are called Kelvin pods.

** In ''Film/StarTrek'', [[YouAreInCommandNow newly-promoted Captain]] George Kirk goes down with his ship--he sets the ship on a collision course with the attacking Romulan ship (to prevent it from attacking any of the escape pods), but the ship's autopilot is damaged. So he manually pilots the vessel and uses his last words [[TearJerker to tell his wife he loves her.]]
