* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''
** Jonathan Joestar 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.
** Erina herself dies peacefully in her own bed of old age at the end of Part II surrounded by her loved ones.

On the other end of things, if you stop his rampage by killing him, his face will still be contorted with pain and grief in death.
* In ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'', the Forest of Fallen Giants contains several trees that used to be the corpses of giants slain in the war between the giants and Drangleic. Examining them will just say "Alas, nothing happened", until later in the game when you have a certain item that allows you to do something with them. However, there is one of these trees hidden away in a secluded area that the item will not work on. Examining it will instead say "A giant rests in peace". This tree also has a small chance of providing you with a useful item every time you get invaded.

* When the {{Badass}} Vampire Lord David finally 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.

* 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.
