* ''Film/RogueOne'': In the epilogue, [[spoiler: a few rebel troopers aboard Admiral Raddus' flagship manage to obtain the recently-transferred-death star plans and attempt to board the Tantive IV and escape. However, they are prevented from boarding the Tantive IV due to a faulty blast door, and soon Darth Vader arrives and begins slaughtering said-rebels, with one screaming for the rebels on the other side of the door to help them. Soon, once the lone rebel realizes he will be killed, he passes the death star plans through the little space, telling the rebel on the other side to take it, before he is killed by Darth Vader]].

* ''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.
