* The one in the middle of the story, wherein the Heroic Sacrifice leads to new heights of BadAss, or new depths of depression, in the characters who are affected by it (depending on the story.) Sometimes both.

Characters who DrawAggro may not expect to live, and thus it will also be this trope.

A Heroic Sacrifice usually requires that a character be NotAfraidToDie. If the Heroic Sacrifice was pre-planned, it's a SelfSacrificeScheme. Often preceded with a SneakyDeparture from the team, or a MoreHeroThanThou dispute. AFriendInNeed often requires it, and doing it [[ActOfTrueLove proves your love for them]]. Contrast VillainsDyingGrace, when a dying villain decides to save a life. The DoomedMoralVictor fights a battle where the outcome is clear from the beginning. If the character has time to say some last words before dying, they often do so in an ObiWanMoment. Often a DyingMomentOfAwesome. There's also the case where SomeoneHasToDie, which takes this UpToEleven.

For specific subtypes, see [[HeroicSacrifices this index]].
