* ''{{Exalted}}'': The First Age Solars, who by that point had gone [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity cuckoo for cocoa puffs]], were killed during the Usurpation, and as their souls settled into the Underworld, they finally realized [[DeathEqualsRedemption what sort of atrocities they'd committed]]. That is, save for 13 Solar ghosts who still raged at their betrayal... and who were all too happy to accept the deal the [[EldritchAbomination Neverborn]] offered them. Thus were the Deathlords born -- immensely powerful ghosts with a stated goal of dragging all of Creation into the maw of Oblivion.

* While not exactly his plan, the Master in the new ''Series/DoctorWho'' series creates a cult of FanGirls and leaves specific instructions on what to do in case he is killed. After he is shot by his wife, he chooses not to regenerate so as not to end up the Doctor's prisoner, and because he knows his followers will bring him back to life. Unfortunately for him, his resurrection is sabotaged by his wife, which causes him to [[CameBackWrong Come Back Wrong]]. Worse, this all may have been a GambitRoulette of [[strike:TimothyDalton]] the Time Lords.

* ''ValkyrieProfile'': Lezard Valeth kills himself to gain immortality, which allows him to survive Ragnarok. This is only seen in the best ending, but presumably occurs in every one since there are no NiceJobBreakingItHero moments related to him.

* In ''Film/{{Serenity}}'', The Operative [[NecessarilyEvil knows what he does is evil]], but is deprived the ability to pay for his sins with death when Mal [[SwordOverHead refuses to kill him]] after winning their duel.
* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'' begins in the 18th century when the French authorities prepare to punish Destro's ancestor. When he speaks the tropes, the French respond, "We're not going to kill you, we're going to make an example of you." and shove a red hot metal mask on his face.

* Subverted by Prince Vigo in ''Film/GhostbustersII''. Despite his apparent last words being "Death is but a door; time but a window. I'll be back!", it was not his intention to die and become all powerful. He was murdered with extreme prejudice against his wishes, and just happened to have a way to reincarnate as an immortal overlord a few centuries later. A straighter example is seen in ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' where that movie's villain, Rowan North, commits suicide so he can be born again as a powerful ghost.
