* ''OnePiece'' has a rather interesting variation of this. The former Pirate King Gold Roger, well aware of his impending death due to disease, turns himself in. He then challenges everyone to find his MacGuffin and proclaims that whoever finds it can have it. The World Government had been about to execute him to make an example out of him to other would-be pirates, but his [[ThanatosGambit stunt]] singlehandedly created an Age of Piracy. Made even more interesting by the fact that nobody (well, at least nobody who's talking) knows for sure whether the titular "One Piece" treasure really exists, much less what it actually might be.

* The somewhat-obscure MarvelComics hero The Torpedo (see ComicBook/RomSpaceKnight and ComicBook/NewWarriors) got his [[PowerArmor supercostume]] from the dying scientist who had made it for an evil organization but then changed his mind... while he was ''waiting for an elevator''. Then he just decided to ''[[TooDumbToLive put it on]]'' right then and there, which got him into a fight with Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}, who had been pursuing the scientist moments before!
