* A segment of ''Podcast/{{Rabbits}}'' tells the story of Arcadia, an idyllic community whose citizens would be taken by madness every eighty-nine days. A madness that would last until one person was killed and then fade until the next time. Arcadia's Keeper, Ivan, spent his life trying to find a way to break the cycle. In old age, he decided to try sacrificing himself, making himself the one death; an act that was forbidden. When the day came, he slit his wrists in the town square as the madness came over him. [[HopeSpot At first]], it looked like he succeeded, but the madness came over everyone yet again. This time, however, it didn't end with one person's death and Ivan lived just long enough to [[SenslessSacrifice see everyone in Arcadia kill each other]].

* In Creator/BrianKVaughan's last arc on ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Chase brokers a deal offering up his own life to the Gibborim in exchange for Gert being resurrected. Of course, since this is [[IdiotHero Chase]] we're talking about, the Gibborim aren't much interested in his life and instead try to take Nico, forcing the Runaways into a CurbStompCushion battle that nearly kills them all.
