* ''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.

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.

* ''OnePiece'' is a skilled user of this trope, with many characters who die preferring to GoOutWithASmile. The Pirate King Gold Roger kicked off the series by smiling (on the execution platform, no less) and telling the world that whoever wants his treasure can have it if they can find it. The highlight though was the death of Nami & Nojiko's mother, Bellemere. Willingly sacrificing herself for the continued safety of her daughters, a gun pointed at her head, her final words to them before death were "Nojiko! Nami! I love you!"

* In the ''{{Trigun}}'' manga, Wolfwood sits and shares one last drink with Vash in the rubble outside the orphanage he grew up in and just saved from destruction. The last thing he sees before he dies is confetti thrown by the children as they fly to safety welcoming him home.

** In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', Clair also gets a very serene Obi-Wan Moment. After she's slashed through by Will, she actually curtsies as she dissolves into the stage.

* Jean from ''{{Claymore}}'' goes out this way while [[spoiler: she uses the last of her yoki to help Clare revert back from her half-Awakened state, reassuring Clare that she has finally repaid her debt to Clare after she saved her from the same fate and that [[ItHasBeenAnHonor she was glad to have met her]].]]

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fabrizio_Quattrocchi Fabrizio Quattrochi]], an Italian security officer taken hostage by Islamic militants in Iraq, shouted "''Vi faccio vedere come muore un Italiano!''" ("I'll show you how an Italian dies!") just before he was shot in the back of the neck by his captors. He was posthumously awarded Italy's Gold Medal for Civil Valor for that defiant remark.

* 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 [[XWingSeries his wife's]] hand. [[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.
