* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Durkon is defeated by Malack. As the vampire drains his lifeblood, Durkon begs Malack to at least let his friends live. In deference to the friendship they shared in the short time they knew each other, Malack agrees. The lives of his friends assured, Durkon is able to die in peace. He sheds a tear, knowing that according to the Oracle's prophecy he will finally be able to go home. He dies with a smile on his face and X's in his eyes. He gets better(?) after Malack raises him as a vampire.

* [[spoiler: Rei]] in the ''Kiryuuin Chronicles'' seems to have finally been at peace, considering all that had happened. Satsuki also noted that death was what had freed her, thus making her death symbolically an example of IDieFree.

*Having died acknowledging how poorly she treated her daughters and having made amends with them on deathbed,Ragyou's death of terminal illness in ''Fanfic/CellarSecrets'' is this. Despite being a bit antagonistic, it does come off as rather tragic.
-->'''Satsuki''' (later musings): "She went to her grave, at peace with the fact that she wronged her daughters and she had no one but herself to blame."

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', [[CreepyChild Maria]] is found this way in the fourth arc. Battler notes that the murderer apparently went out of their way to make her look that way, and it actually looks pretty squicky, since she's lying so peacefully in the lap of her mother, whose face was half-blown off, surrounded by adults whose faces were half-blown off.
