** And then [[spoiler:Harry himself]] repeats the feat in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows The Deathly Hallows]]'' when he finds out that the only way Voldemort can be beaten is if Harry is killed by him. After assuring that there are people who have the necessary information to kill Voldemort, he has a peaceful moment with the ghosts of his loved ones. He then confronts the Dark Lord, accepting his fate and not even using his wand to defend himself. [[spoiler: He gets better, though.]]

* ''Series/AgentsOfShield'': The megalomaniacal [[spoiler:Hive]] gets one. When he realizes that there is no way to survive even though he has several minutes left, he becomes contemplative, sad only that he couldn't unite the world as he wanted to.

* True to the source material, [[spoiler:Kanan Jarrus]] of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels meets his end this way. [[spoiler:He knows he's going to die, so he shaves and cuts his hair so he can appear to Hera as he was the day they first met, gives Ezra and Sabine one last lesson, and resolves his feelings for Hera. When the time comes and he's holding back an explosion to save his family, he connects with them through the Force one last time before throwing them clear as he's consumed by it.]]

* Roy Batty in ''Film/BladeRunner'', whose quiet resignation was a sharp contrast to Pris and Zhora's shrieking wrath. Realising his quest for prolonged life was AllForNothing, he saves Decker's life and gives arguably the greatest final speech in film history, then smiles and silently slips away.

* After surviving the wreck of a jet car, ''TopGear'''s Richard Hammond said in a mutual interview with [[UsefulNotes/FormulaOne racing legend]] Sir Stirling Moss, who had survived a similar brain-damaging accident in 1962, that the sensation of being about to die was like getting to the end of a to-do list consisting of: 1) get in car, 2) drive car, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick 3) crash car, 4) die]]. "Oh, I've got to the 'die' bit." Moss said that in his case, when his steering sheared at 165+ mph and he found that he'd crossed his arms in front of him, something was wrong, and the only thing left on his mind was "Christ, what does it mean?"

* Master Oogway in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', who much like Obi Wan seems to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence rather than do anything so crude as to actually ''die''; in this case, he fades into a cloud of peach blossoms blown up by the wind.

** In ''Film/TheLastJedi'', [[spoiler:Luke Skywalker]] does this. [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope He]]]] [[SubvertedTrope is not killed by Kylo, though]]. [[spoiler:Kylo ''attempts'' to kill Luke in the aftermath of the CurbStompBattle of Crait by [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill vaporising him using an AT-AT's laser cannon]], and then when that apparently fails, he goes and confronts Luke in person, and attempts to [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe slice him in two]]. It is revealed that Luke isn't really there, and it is just a powerful astral projection. Luke subsequently becomes one with the Force after using the last of his energy to create the projection, [[AwesomeMoments/StarWars just so he can tell Kylo he is doomed to fail and the war is not won]]. Just before he dies, [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu Luke basically tells Kylo to go pound sand]].]]

* In ''SonicX'' (and the video game ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' which the anime was based on) just before being ejected into space and blown up ([[DIsneyDeath not really]]) Sonic looks at his friends, says "hey, it's okay" before telling Tails to finish what he started. He's still smiling as he's blown out of the Space Station. Tails finishes what he started. Awesomely.
