* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul[=:Re=]'', Kishou Arima has spent roughly a decade becoming TheDreaded as part of a larger plan to spark a revolution. As the most powerful servant of the GovernmentConspiracy, anyone that killed him would immediately become a HopeBringer for ghouls and a powerful force capable of opposing his masters in '''V'''. After three years grooming Kaneki into his SuperiorSuccessor, Arima goads him into a brutal final battle and tries to provoke Kaneki into killing him. When he is defeated but spared, Arima commits suicide and requests that Kaneki claim credit for his death. Eto later explains to Kaneki that as Arima's "killer", he is now in the unique position to become the One-Eyed King and lead the revolution that she had planned with Arima.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Belkar tries to provoke Miko into killing him so that she would get her status as Paladin revoked. [[DeathIsCheap He assumed that his teammates could just resurrect him afterward.]] However, this is subverted as V points out that they needed 5,000 GP's worth of diamond dust, which they did not have. Also given that he's a {{jerkass}} SociopathicHero going on VillainProtagonist, his teammates might not have been willing or (and given they were in a Lawful Good country in which he had murdered someone) able to gather the components to Raise him.

Protagonists are also capable of doing this, but more often than not those are just undertakings that are [[HeroicSacrifice considered suicide]] and not part of some master scheme. If anyone on the hero side pulls this off, it will probably be TheObiWan, complete with an ObiWanMoment.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Sephiroth [[SubvertedTrope doesn't fall into this,]] as he wasn't planning at all on his demise at Nibelheim. However, it did ultimately put him and Jenova in the position to cause the events of the game several years later. Then the game flips the trope into a rare heroic usage ''without'' even using TheObiWan; the game heavily implies ''Aerith'' manages to do this thanks to being Cetra, and ultimately saves the world in the end by getting the planet itself to help Holy defeat Sephiroth's Meteor. To reiterate: [[BigGood the flower girl]] [[ThanatosGambit outsmarted the strongest man on the planet]] [[HoistByHisOwnPetard by essentially using her death at his hands to counteract his plan at the last minute.]] It's open to interpretation if this is what she really intended, but there's a lot of evidence suggesting it.

* Friend from TwentiethCenturyBoys tries to do one of these by faking his death. Unfortunately, he underestimated one of his subordinates, who seizes the opportunity to kill him for real and take his place in the scheme.

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'': In Part 5, Carne approaches the plane the heroes are about to take, apparently unarmed. Mista guns him down on the spot. Unfortunately for the heroes, Carne was something of a suicide bomber - his death was the trigger to awaken Notorious B.I.G., one of the most powerful and dangerous Stands in the series. (How powerful? Try ''absolutely indestructible''.)

* Citizen Soldier, a constantly-reincarnating CaptainAmerica {{Expy}} from ''ComicBook/{{Stormwatch}}: Team Achilles''. Anticipating that the protagonists, who know about his reincarnation cycle, will put him in cryogenic suspension, he arranges for someone less knowledgeable to find out his location and kill him right as the protagonists are about to take him into custody.
