* A variation happens in Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''[[ArrivalsFromTheDark Fighters of Danveyt]]'', when the novel's protagonist finds himself in a no-win situation with a much more powerful enemy ship. He orders the ship's semi-sentient computer to eject the two other crewmembers (who are sealed in personal pods) and sets a collison course for the enemy's {{Antimatter}} gun. The ship decides to alter the plan slightly by ejecting the captain as well a few seconds before the collision. The collision results in the loss of containment for the {{Antimatter}} and the destruction of both ships. The protagonist wakes up a week later having barely survived the blast.

* Subverted in the case of the ''Admiral Graf Spee''. The captain, Hans Langsdorff, should have gone down with that ship when he ordered it scuttled on December 18, 1939, but his officers convinced him not to. So he killed himself the next day, a symbolic act of dying with his ship.

* In Film/{{Ben-Hur}}, the galley captain tells titular captive Judah Ben-Hur that he won't escape as long as the Roman legion who controls the ship is able to stay in control but in case they lose control to outside forces,
Ben-Hur, not the Roman captors, will sink with the rest of the slaves, chained to their assigned oars.
