* In ''VideoGame/HaloWars'', the [[CoolStarship Spirit of Fire]] is trapped inside a Forerunner shieldworld. In order for them to escape, somebody has to take the ship's {{FTL}} Drive and use it to destroy the artificial sun. This is combined with MoreExpendableThanYou when [[SergeantRock Sergeant Forge]] tells Jerome that humanity will need every [[SuperSoldier Spartan]] they can get to fight the war and so decides to take the latter's place.

* Subverted in ''{{Franchise/Bionicle}}'', when the Toa Inika are told they have to sacrifice one of their own to get to the powerful Mask of Life. Matoro takes the hit, feeling he's [[MoreExpendableThanYou not action hero material like the rest of the team]] - but he's OnlyMostlyDead and quickly brought back, as the ''willingness'' to sacrifice was what mattered and the actual death was irrelevant.

* At the end of ''Film/TheAvengers'', [[spoiler: Tony]] grabs the nuke and flies it into space in spite of Natasha's warnings that anything going out of the wormhole is on a "one way trip" because everyone on Manhattan Island would've been killed otherwise, even if Natasha managed to close the portal in time to stop the rest of the invading army. It's unsaid, but notable, that [[spoiler: Thor]] also had the capability to do this, and [[spoiler: Tony]] could've refused to catch the nuke and instead [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere flown away from the city in time to save himself]], yet chose not to.

* ''K19TheWidowmaker''. If the first men going in weren't sure what was going to happen to them, those who saw them afterwards pretty much knew.
* ''NationalTreasure 2: Book of Secrets''. With the cavern flooding, the only way to escape drowning is for one person to hold the drainage door open long enough for the rest to escape. Mitch specifically invokes this trope.

* ''ATaleOfTwoCities'' - Sydney Carton's switching places with Charles Darnay with one of the most memorable final lines in English literature, "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known."

* ''Deep Wizardry'', the second book in the ''YoungWizards'', features this as a major plot point. A magical song/play must be sung/performed or the ocean will be corrupted, and Nita volunteers to play the part which is KilledOffForReal at the end of it, a fact she doesn't realize until she's well and committed. The Shark King (who is supposed to eat her) sacrifices himself to prevent Evil from interfering, and is eaten by all the sharks in the ocean, getting her off the hook (no pun intended).

* In ''[[DarthBane Darth Bane: Path of Destruction]]'', General Hoth and 99 other Jedi sacrifice themselves to get the Brotherhood of Darkness to detonate the thought bomb that they had prepared, which would trap the souls of all involved for eternity. Hoth reasoned that the Brotherhood would only detonate the bomb if doing so would trap a large number of Jedi, and that the Brotherhood would otherwise escape and continue to plague the galaxy. Every Jedi present volunteered.
* In DarkReflections , the only one who can defeat the BigBad is the Flowing Queen- in her true body( she's been sharing the main character, Merle's). the gang finds her true body, that of a Sphinx, but the Queen tells Merle the catch- in order to return to her body, the life force of her host must be exchanged with the form she takes on- and since her body is dead, it means Merle will die. Merle makes her peace with this, but the Queen tells everyone else that someone else can become her host and die in Merle's place. the love interest, Sarafin, offers his life, but Merle refuses to let him die. They Kiss and Sarafin uses the moment to take the Flowing Queen into his own body, then makes the transfer.

** FridgeLogic Sets in when you realize they had still several bombs on board they could of used at any time prior in the last 6 months. More FridgeLogic sets in when you realize the drive is an Orion Drive. Orion drives are a product of ForScience that are metal plates you put your ship on and have a nuclear weapon detonate on the other side of. The amount of energy being used to reach the comet and then match it's course to go back to Earth is a hell of a lot.... and if you pointed the engine at the comet the entire time there'd be a lot less comet.
