* ''Literature/TheSwordOfTruth'': Wizard's Life Fire can be this, when done to protect another person. It requires that a wizard [[CastFromHitPoints put all of his life force]] into a spell that consumes everything surrounding them in a last act that also kills him. In the first book, Kahlan's former wizard does this to ensure that Darken Rahl cannot [[spoiler: use magic to learn who has made off with a Box of Orden]]. Zedd tastes the ashes left on the wall and notes that they are sweet, the sign that it was done to protect another person. [[spoiler: This is also the first indication they have that he was acting on some greater plan, rather than just abandoning Kahlan for the money and power of his new post.]] Zedd later attempts it to stop the chimes, but survives and is revived by Richard.

* In ''ShinAngyoOnshi'' Kye Wol Hyang was a victim of a vicious sadistic choice by resident BigBad [[CompleteMonster Aji]] [[PhysicalGod Tae]], either she got to live as a zombie and serve him while he committed untold horrors, or she killed her beloved Munsu, and Aji Tae restored her to normal. She took a third option and killed herself in front of Munsu a second time, pulling Munsu out of the HeroicBSOD he was in, causing a massive failure in the curse that Munsu was suffering, making him invincible against Aji Tae, and ensuring that in the long run, the former would bring down the later.

-->-- '''John Hartigan''', ''Film/SinCity''
''ComicBook/SinCity''



* John Hartigan from ''SinCity'' kills himself so that no one will hurt Nancy to get at him.
* In the IronMan storyline "Execute Program", a villain remotely hijacks several of Tony's Iron Man suits, causing them to go on a rampage all over the world. Tony takes down four of the five, but is unable to defeat the last one, which is about to crush Captain America. Because the suit is controlled through software that's plugged directly into Tony's brain (long story), he realizes that he can deactivate it by killing himself. Which he does, by using his suit's power source to give himself a massive electric shock (don't worry, [[OnlyMostlyDead he gets better]]).

* ''{{Film/Fallen}}'': Realizing that Azazel will never stop tormenting him and that the demon will target Gretta and Sam next, Hobbes plots to lure Azazel to the remote cabin Milano killed himself at, then poison himself and trick Azazel into his dying body so that the demon will die, too, without any other host in the area. Although he does succeed in setting all aspects of his plan into motion, and dies thinking it worked, Azazel manages to survive by finding a cat to possess.
