* In ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'', Draco is mortally wounded during the fight with Medusa. Aware his time his short, he uses the last of his strength to stall and weaken her. Confident that Perseus could finish what they started, the normally stern Draco gives the hero a peaceful smile, reminding him to tell all that, "men did this." Medusa then turns him to stone and shatters his body.

This usually pops up with TheObiWan ([[TropeNamers naturally]]), the ZenSurvivor, or any other character who has lived like they were NotAfraidToDie. May also happen with villains in a DissonantSerenity situation. This may also be an indication that the character's death was not only [[MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning planned]], but in fact [[ThanatosGambit is a part of the larger picture of the story]]. Because of this, he will naturally FaceDeathWithDignity. May happen if the person is about to perform a HeroicSacrifice or has already done it but death was not instant. This may be a precursor to a [[DeathActivatedSuperpower Death-Activated Superpower]].

* In ''Literature/WarAndPeace'', both of Pierre's mentors, [[TheObiWan Osip Bazdeev]] and [[EccentricMentor Platon Karataev]], die in this way. Osip, in his bed with Pierre by his side. Platon, [[spoiler:shot by the French]], having intentionally fallen behind in a [[spoiler:POW forced march]]. Both scenes are described as them dying with a certain dignity.

* ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' has at least two examples. When [[spoiler:the artist realizes there's a bomb on his ship]] and there's nothing he can do, he hugs his girlfriend and awaits the end. Likewise, [[spoiler: the newspaper seller instinctively moves to shield the comic-reading kid]] as a massive explosion engulfs them both. In a book that features quite a bit of HumansAreBastards, the second example above doubles as something of a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}.
** There is also [[spoiler: Rorschach]]'s death. He starts out like this, cooly accepting the logic of his own death under the circumstances. But he breaks from the trope at the last moment; with tears streaming down his face he screams at his hesitant killer to "DO IT!"

* In ''{{Cyborg 2}}'', Jack Palance is the leader of the underground railroad helping to smuggle cyborgs out from under the control of the Pinwheel Corporation. At the end of the film, the CorruptCorporateExecutive captures him, brings him to his office, and gloats that he's just sent the self-destruct signal to blow up the cyborg heroine (Angelina Jolie!). Instead, it's Palance who starts ticking, and with a smirk he proclaims "looks like you kissed the wrong ass goodbye!" before blowing the BigBad and his corporate headquarters sky-high.
* In ''ClashOfTheTitans'', Draco is mortally wounded during the fight with Medusa. Aware his time his short, he uses the last of his strength to stall and weaken her. Confident that Perseus could finish what they started, the normally stern Draco gives the hero a peaceful smile, reminding him to tell all that, "men did this." Medusa then turns him to stone and shatters his body.
