* The Titanic's sister ship the ''Britannic'' was sunk by a German mine while serving as a hospital ship during the first Wold War. Every passenger managed to escape the ship (with the exception of those killed by the initial explosion and an accident with a lifeboat) but Captain Charles Bartlett made certain everyone else got off before he did, literally staying at the bridge until it flooded and he swam out but not until his Fist Officer go off before him. That being said, he still technically wasn't the last man off because a quartermaster was bellow deck gathering supplies for the lifeboats only to go back on deck and see the ship half-sunk and all the passengers and crew gone, he barely made it off before the ship made the final plunge. In Bartlett's defense, his officer didn't know someone was still on board while running the final search down the ship's decks.

** Chief Officer Henry Wilde and Second Officer Charles Lightoller both had the ship sink beneath their feet as they tried to load the remaining two collapsible boats. Wilde clung to a deck chair and perished while Lightoller mounted Collapsible B with nearly two dozen-men and survived (the highest-ranking officer to do so). The manner of First Officer William Murdoch's death is unknown, but it's believed that he was crushed by the forward funnel collapsing.

** Thomas Andrews, the designer of ''Titanic,'' also went down with the ship--after frantic efforts to help others get off--holding himself responsible for the shortage of lifeboats and the fact that the ship was not as "unsinkable" as advertised. It is said he was last seen in the First Class Smoking Room, his life jacket cast aside, staring into space.

* Admiral George Tryon, who went down with ''HMS Victoria'' in one of the worst naval accidents of the 19th Century. Due to a dreadful miscalculation on his part - his last recorded words were an admission of how he'd screwed everything up and "It's all my fault."

* A variation happens in Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''[[Literature/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.
