** Played straight with August during the war with Alvarez: having completely outmatched and outgunned ''Gildarts'' of all people thanks to his [[SuperpowerLottery powerful]] [[AllYourPowersCombined magic]], instead of using literally ''any other attack'', August decides to end the fight with a suicide attack that only succeeds in killing himself (due to [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas a very convenient]] HeelFaceTurn).

** Rin. F**king. Nohara. When the Mist ninja captured her and sealed the three tails in her body, she [[spoiler:gets Kakashi to kill her]] so that she can't be used as a weapon against Konoha. The problem? This conflict could have easily been resolved if she, you know, helped Kakashi fight her captors or try to flee from danger since he was willing to fight for her safety anyway, anything that would have stalled time for Obito to arrive and help the two fight off the Mist ninja. And as you'd imagine, [[spoiler:Obito doesn't take her death very well and puts together a revenge scheme that sets Black Zetsu's plot to revive Kaguya into motion.]] Yes, Rin's incompetence and absolute stupidity through her ''heroic sacrifice'' is the cause of every bad thing that has ever happened in the Naruto universe from that moment forward.

** This trope is almost referenced by name by Mayor Me in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E10FaceTheRaven Face the Raven]]" when it's discovered that Clara has needlessly taken on a death sentence that was never supposed to be imposed (it was simply a trick), yet now Clara has taken it on, it must be completed, leading to the Doctor's companion being [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]].

** The Fourth Hokage sacrificed his life to seal the Kyuubi inside his newborn son. But had he allowed the Kyuubi to die with its previous host, it would temporarily put a hold on the BigBad's plans for an unspecified number of years. Allegedly the Kyuubi was used as a war deterrent, but the Fourth alone proved that in the right circumstances he is the equal of not only the Kyuubi, but also next strongest host (the eight tails) and the Fourth Raikage as well. Add onto that the Third Hokage (strongest of his generation, maybe of any generation) and [[PowerTrio the Sannin]] and you've got a group that are far more effective and convenient for deterring attacks than an EldritchAbomination. End result, his son grew up an orphan, utterly despised by nearly everyone in the village for no reason and the bad guy's plan has gone off more or less without a hitch to date. Its power does become useful against the bad guys.

[[note]]This is the result of a {{Retcon}}; originally the Kyuubi had been on an unstoppable rampage and sealing it within Naruto was the only way it could be stopped, Kushina being the former host and recontaining it within her to stop its rampage was made up much, MUCH later in the story.[[/note]] Allegedly the Kyuubi was used as a war deterrent, but the Fourth alone proved that in the right circumstances he is the equal of not only the Kyuubi, but also next strongest host (the eight tails) and the Fourth Raikage as well.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse''. [[spoiler: Heroine Asahi]] makes a DivingSave when [[spoiler: a Flynn-disguised Shesha]] attacks the main protagonist, who can be killed, but can't stay dead due to a DealWithTheDevil. [[spoiler: Shesha]] quickly makes it clear that he didn't just kill [[spoiler: Asahi]], he devoured her soul. If he did kill the main protagonist, the god who brings him back wouldn't be able to find his soul again.
