* In the ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' mission "House Pegh", Emperor Kahless sees an Iconian, T'Ket, on a security camera during a covert infiltration mission and goes charging after it in search of "glorious battle". For reference, two story arcs earlier an Iconian vaporized the entire Klingon High Council with a wave of its hand. [[TooDumbToLive This ends the way you'd expect]], despite [[spoiler:a Klingon engineer on the team using {{technobabble}} to strip away T'Ket's NighInvulnerability]].]]

*** Most Khorne devoties act like that. Several novels depicting the Imperial Guard stated that "those are easier kind to deal with."

* ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander'' features a variation of this, wherein the character himself is not a Leeroy Jenkins per se (the ACU is the primary builder and thus doesn't leave the base), but his tactics have every hallmark of the trope. In the fifth mission, you are joined by a fellow commander named Fletcher. This blatantly racist jackass should already be grating on your nerves, having been spouting his nonsense in every mission thus far, and his appearance on the battlefield doessn't help. The first thing he does is get enough mass extractors and energy generators running to let him build Fatboys. Then he'll do that. And nothing else. This guy will do absolutely nothing to defend himself (no defense towers, no shield towers, nothing) short of giving his ACU a shield, and your opponent will exploit this. You are expected to keep this bastard alive. To make things even more insulting (but also very satisfying), [[spoiler:you have to kill him in the next mission when he finally goes nuts]].

** Any and all berserker units in ''VideoGame/RomeTotalWar'' will go into a frenzy, become uncontrollable, and charge enemy units with complete disregard for their surroundings.

** Way back in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2 Innocent Sin}}'', Eikichi Mishina pulls this at Club Zodiac by charging in without waiting for the others. It's slightly mitigated by the fact that he absolutely ''could'' have laid waste to the goons in there... if they hadn't been threatening his love interest, thus causing him to not fight back against the beating of a lifetime. (Hilariously, allowing Eikichi to deal with this on his own instead of ''helping'' him [[spoiler:is the only way to get his Ultimate Persona.]] You ''have'' to let him be Leeroy!)

* Leeroy returns as a card in ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft''. He can attack the turn he is played since he has the Charge ability, but has a Battlecry effect of giving the opponent two 1/1 dragon whelps upon being put down. [[note]] Since he has two health, this is essentially a way to deal immediate one-off damage with him, then he gets killed by the Whelps unless you have a way to keep them off him.[[/note]]

* The commonly-used ''VideoGame/WorldOfTanks'' mod XVM tracks this as a stat: "Kamikazes" are the number of times a player (or more generally, players using a specific tank) rush out, spot an enemy, and die within the first minute of the game. This tends to happen a lot with [[FragileSpeedster light tanks]] or the faster [[GlassCannon tank destroyers]]. This is unrelated to the in-game achievement Kamikaze, which just asks you to [[CarFu kill a higher-tier enemy with a ramming attack]].
