* In the alternate ending to ''Fanfic/TheKillerRarityverse'', "the Word is Fear", Blossom traps Shining Armor with her magic, and proceeds to play a game of spin the bottle with him, in which she spins a knife, and cuts whoever it lands on. Whoever doesn't bleed out first will then be free to get the healing potion She has placed just out of reach. When Shining asks her why she is doing this, she tells him that she doesn't want to live anymore, but still fears dying, and this way, she won't know she is dying until it is too late. This fails, as Shining succumbs first, leaving Blossom to face Celestia's wrath.

** At several points in the series, depending on the mode of resurrection, some ghosts and forms of reanimated dead are still conscious but have no control over their body. They will sometimes be {{Apologetic Attacker}}s and will thank the person who kills them for freeing them as they die (again).

** The Underking in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' has this due to the fact that he ''cannot'' die until re-united with his heart (his goal the game is just that, and since the canon ending turned out to be '[[MergingTheBranches all of the above]]', he probably did).

* In Creator/LarryNiven's novel ''[[Literature/{{Ringworld}} The Ringworld Engineers]]'', Teela Brown has become a Protector whose descendant-protecting instincts are paradoxically making her try to stop the main characters from saving the Ringworld. She is, however, just rational enough to provoke the main characters into killing her so they can get on with the job. It helps slightly that Louis is literally the only creature on Ringworld who is technically the same species as she is, so her protective instincts are ''slightly'' stronger towards him then they are towards the humanoid-but-not-quite-''human'' Ringworld natives. She doesn't feel any instinctive compunctions to keep Chmeee alive, though. Luckily he's a half-ton of obligate carnivore from a ProudWarriorRace, and therefore no slouch himself. She still half-kills him while desperately trying not to fight as effectively as she can, though.
-->'''Chmeee:''' "She let her instincts fight for her. Not her mind. You were right, Louis, she fought to lose. Kdapt help me if she had fought to win."

* Records exist of HornyVikings on their deathbeds who asked their friends to "speed the process along," so to speak. Beyond functioning as a MercyKill, this practice was associated with the kind of honorable death favored in the MartyrdomCulture of UsefulNotes/TheVikingAge -- a bit like {{seppuku}} in UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}. See, according the Myth/{{Norse|Mythology}} faith, dying outside of battle wouldn't get you into WarriorHeaven, but if your friend finished you off, then you ''[[LoopholeAbuse technically]]'' "died by the sword."
