* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': Subverted with All Might, mentor of Izuku Midoriya. He's already seriously injured to the point it inhibits his powers at the start of the series. Throughout the first one hundred chapters we see his condition deteriorate as he's able to maintain his HourOfPower for less and less time. He also failed to inform Midoriya that he wasn't going to be around forever when there was a clear need to do so. Then he goes up against his incredibly powerful ArchEnemy just as his power runs out and Izuku is watching the whole thing on live television. Everything points to this being All Might's final battle, [[spoiler:and it ''is'', but not because he's killed. He simply uses up the very last remaining bit of his power defeating the villain, but manages to survive in the end]].
