Most often though, it's a cigarette, because SmokingIsCool. This comes with the bonus of being able to ''see'' the character's final breath, and the added symbolism of the cigarette dying out. A character who has previously quit smoking may take this opportunity to smoke his LastUnsmokedCigarette. The character's foe may even help him light it as part of a DyingTruce.
