*** [[spoiler: While the Rainbow Sage [[YourDaysAreNumbered is about to die of old age]] by the time the cast meets him, when Garon's advisor Iago sends the Avatar and his/her group a message saying that they must kill the Sage to avert anyone else to get his immense powers, the Sage simply tells the Avatar not to worry [[FaceDeathWithDignity and calmly]] [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled offs himself right there]]. And unlike the others, [[KilledOffForReal there is no way to save him]].]]
** [[spoiler: After being defeated for the last time, Prince Ryoma of Hoshido realizes that the Avatar will be caught in a straight-up SadisticChoice where, [[IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten if he/she refuses to finish him off, Garon will probably kill him/her instead]]. So [[TakeAThirdOption before this happens]], Ryoma commits {{seppuku}} on the spot to both die honorably and keep the Avatar from being killed. And just like the Rainbow Sage, he [[KilledOffForReal stays dead]].]]

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', [[spoiler:[[AnIcePerson Invel]] uses his [[MindRape mag]][[PeoplePuppets ic]] to force Gray and Juvia to [[InvoluntaryBattleToTheDeath fight to the death]], with Grey being the obvious victor. Seeing no other way out, as Invel outright states the only way they'll be free is when one dies and they can't attack him, they simultaneously muster the last of their resistance to kill themselves, Juvia in order to spare Gray from living with the sin of killing her, and Gray in order to save Juvia's life. However, Gray ends up surviving because Juvia gave him an emergency blood transfusion before she died, saving him]].

* In the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' novel ''Oathbreakers,'' Jadrek drugs himself asleep with the intention of dying quietly of cold rather than continue to be TheLoad to Kethry and Tarma if they're unable to find shelter from the bitter mountain winter weather they're lost in. Fortunately, they ''do'' find shelter and he sleeps the medication off without further complications, although Tarma at least suspects what he was trying to do.

** A nonlethal version in the first book- they're taking the role of chess pieces, and Ron allows himself to be taken (smashed off his horse by a giant chess piece) to get the others the win.
** The above could be argued to be a [[Heroic Sacrifice]] instead
