* Averted ''hard'' in ''The Pit and the Pendulum'' when Creator/VincentPrice's character finds the remains of his wife, who he fears was buried alive. The corpse appears to be screaming in agony. [[spoiler: It's all a {{Gaslighting}} scheme by his living wife and her lover to drive him mad. Unfortunately for them, [[GoneHorriblyRight it works.]]]]

* 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.

* Music/DanielAmos's "Shedding the Mortal Coil" (from ''Music/{{Alarma}}'') is sung from the perspective of a dying man who sees his old life as “out of date” and “unnecessary”. It's quite a chipper tune.

* When the {{Badass}} Vampire Lord David finaly died in ''Film/TheLostBoys'' he mysteriously lost his wicked stubble and looked about ten years younger - A Lost Boy if you will. A lot of people has said that the perfect ending of that movie would be a shot of a "Missing Child"-Poster from 1950 with Innocent David on it.

* Jonathan Joestar of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' is able to leave life peacefully after making sure that his bride Erina and the orphaned baby girl they rescued will survive. He dies hugging the (still alive) head of his friend/brother/mortal enemy Dio Brando. Like with most parts of Jonathan's life, Dio messes this up too by hijacking Jonathan's body and using it to wreck havoc in the future. Thankfully, Jonathan's sacrifice wasn't in vain, since Dio is ultimately wiped out for good by Jonathan's great-great-grandson.

* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', the blacksmith Godo dies after finally succumbing to illness. He repairs Guts' equipment one last time before dying peacefully in his own home in the company of friends and family. In a world as nightmarish and cruel as the setting of Berserk, Godo's death was a good one.
