* ''ComicBook/TheGreatPowerOfChninkel'': According to Bom Bom's last descendant, J'on died for nothing. His death did not prevent the [[ApocalypseHow near-total destruction of the world]] by the Almighty Creator and even J'on's memory will be lost when he dies and the other Tawals/humans start worshipping the Monolith again.

* Subverted in C. S. Lewis' ''ChroniclesOfNarnia''. In ''The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe'', Aslan [[MessianicArchetype (Who else?)]] agreed to give up his own life to Jadis in order to save Edmund. Before killing Aslan, Jadis tells him that she's still going to kill Edmund (and everyone else in the rebel camp). Later, Aslan resurrects himself (invoking a loophole in the Deep Magic) and proceeds to [[KungFuJesus kick Jadis' butt]].

** Even if it didn't finish him off, it did take him out for the rest of the season, which in turn allowed the rest of Celestial Being to survive the final battle. On the other hand if Lockon had saved himself he might have lived a few more days but with Ali's help the UN forces would have exterminated Celestial Being and everyone would have died anyway. Though if it weren't for Lockon inexplicably failing to use [[SuperMode trans-am]], he might not have needed to sacrifice himself.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'s'' [S] GAME OVER flash, [[ThePollyanna Jane]] has been put to sleep by [[ManipulativeBastard Aranea]], who has thrown [[{{Badass}} Dirk]]'s sword at her with [[MindOverMatter mind powers]]. Seeing this, [[BoisterousBruiser Jake]] throws himself in front of it and takes the blow, only for Aranea to psychically throw the sword through Jane with Jake ''still on it''. Both of them end up dead (Jake's death is deemed [[HeroicSacrifice Heroic]], whereas Jane's is deemed [[KarmicDeath Just]]).

* The ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode ''Sworn to the Sword'' reveals that [[FragileSpeedster Pearl]] used to do this. Her devotion to Rose Quartz meant that she kept throwing herself in the way of attacks aimed at Rose, despite the fact that Pearl was a GlassCannon and Rose a BarriorWarrior whose magical weapon was a ''shield''. What tended to happen was that Pearl got poofed and Rose had to save her. Unfortunately, ''Sworn to the Sword'' sees her train [[BadassNormal Connie]] with her skills and methods, and the completely-human Connie [[KilledOffForReal can't regenerate like Pearl can]]...

* PlayedForLaughs during the Sky Dodge game in ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaInnocents''. Ouchama attempts to [[TakingTheBullet block the dodge ball heading]] for the defenseless Levi with her body, with the scene playing out in dramatic fashion... except [[SuperDeformed Ouchama's body]] is roughly around the size of the super-charged ball so the ball comically smacks her away with barely any momentum loss, leading to both of them getting eliminated.
