* In ''Videogame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'', the heroes weather an assault by TheWildHunt, and the enemy has breached the castle and unleashed the [[EvilIsDeathlyCold White Frost]] to incapacitate the majority of defenders. [[CoolOldGuy Vesemir]] and Ciri get behind cover just in time. Vesemir gets beaten down and taken hostage to coerce Ciri to surrender herself... which she does. To [[ShootTheHostage remove himself as a hostage]], Vesemir whips out a dagger and stabs his captor, prompting the captor to kill him in kind. Before his [[DefiantToTheEnd last defiance]], he says the following:
-->'''Vesemir''': You always were an unruly child. I adored that about you. Now FLY!

*** Subverted with Tuhan, in fact. While this was arguably his intent (before he died, he wanted to stand before a Narn in neutral space and personally, if not officially, apologize), but his failing health robbed him of that chance (as did the afforementioned scheming). He also very much wanted to meet a Vorlon, and Kosh indeed stops by Turhan's sickbed shortly before his death. When Turhan asks the Vorlon "How will it end?" Kosh replies "In fire," which is not what the poor old man wanted to hear. Finally, his last words, after being informed that Refa and Molari have struck a decisive blow against the Narn, is a whispered "We are all damned." Turhan wanted the ObiWanMoment, but got a TrumaCongaLine.

* There are several of these moments in the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse. [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Thrawn]] smiled. [[OutboundFlight Lorana and Thrass]] [[HoldingHands took each others' hand]]. [[Literature/DeathStar Atour Riten]] stayed behind on the Death Star to give the others clearance and sat surrounded by his books. [[ManchurianAgent Diric Wesseri]] held [[Literature/XWingSeries his wife's]] hand. [[Literature/XWingSeries Ton Phanan]] weakened and died very slowly, but he was still quietly DefiantToTheEnd and [[DeadManWriting wrote to his wingmate, telling him not to blame himself]]. In ''Literature/TheNewRebellion'', Luke didn't die, but he thought he would and acted in accordance to this trope, allowing himself to be killed rather than resorting to the Dark Side.

** As of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', [[spoiler:Han Solo have joined the fold.]] He approached Kylo Ren/[[spoiler:Ben]] alone to talk to him to convince him to leave the First Order. After being stabbed for his failed attempt [[spoiler: to redeem his son, he simply clasped onto Ben's cheek]] before falling into the chasm.

* Reportedly Hannibal Barca, the great Carthaginian general, had a moment like this when the Roman legions who had been chasing him for years finally caught up for him, but rather than let them take him back to Rome he [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled took poison]] instead. His last words were reportedly "Let us relieve the Romans from the anxiety they have so long experienced, [[TakeThat since they think it tries their patience too much to wait for an old man's death]]."
