* 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 cherry blossoms blown up by the wind.

** Well, [[SubvertedTrope not quite]]. [[OnceMoreWithClarity Issue 21 then reveals that]] [[spoiler:Baphomet didn't actually kill Inanna, as he realized that if Inanna knew that Baph's motive was to steal his remaining years of life, Ananke must have told him, meaning that she planned for the Pantheon to start turning each other. Unfortunately, Inanna still dies that night, but he's caught unawares and murdered by Ananke and so doesn't get the DyingMomentOfAwesome he seemed to get in issue 11]].

** [[spoiler: Whitebeard himself]] does this after taking down hundreds of Navy soldiers [[spoiler: despite having a giant hole in his chest]]. He definitely got the last laugh: His last words were [[spoiler: to reveal that One Piece exists to the world, thus jumpstarting new age of pirates.]] His last thoughts were [[spoiler: to smile at the fact that he achieved his greatest treasure and dream in life: a loving family.]]
*** It's even better than his last word made absolutely certain that though his death (and Portgas D. Ace's) spelled the end of the Golden Age of piracy just like the Marines wanted. His dying declaration made darn sure that the "New Era" would be three times worse than any of the others since Pirates now have the confirmation that One Piece is a 100% real. Which makes all of the Marines sacrifices that day null and void.

* ''Manga/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!"

* A subversion appears at the end of [[ComicBook/TheDeathOfClarkKent the Conduit saga]]. Restrained in a {{deathtrap}} designed to be unbeatable, watching his life tick away on a timer overhead, ComicBook/JimmyOlsen delivers a rousing plea to his super powered pal not to [[ItsAllMyFault blame himself for]] [[YouDidEverythingYouCould failing to save him]]. Luckily, he had an [[EurekaMoment epiphany]] which allowed Franchise/{{Superman}} to save him -- just barely.

* This is how Lelouch goes at the end of ''Anime/CodeGeass'', reassuring Suzaku that what they're doing is for the best and giving Nunnally one last smile. Of course, it's kind of strained by the fact that he's been stabbed through the chest and is (apparently rather painfully) bleeding out, but it's still generally what he was doing.

* In the midst of the entire slaughter that was the Eclipse, Judeau's death in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' was particularly heartbreaking, in that he spends his final moments talking to Casca, who he was secretly in love with but never got the chance to tell her his feelings. Instead, he spends it reminding her that her true love, Guts, loved her. He dies less horrifically than the rest of his comrades, dying instead from the injuries he sustained while trying to protect Casca.

[[spoiler:Madoka]] has a lengthier ([[HoYay and even more subtextual]]) last conversation with [[spoiler:Homura]], reassuring her that things will work out and they'll probably see each other again. Both of them GoOutWithASmile.
