* ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/11652651 Avengers: Civil War]]'': [[spoiler:Zemo plans on blowing both himself and the Avengers up with pressure-sensitive explosives so that the Avengers will be killed and two of their own members: Wanda Maximoff and Bucky Barnes (whom Zemo had framed for an attack on the United Nations Complex) will be held responsible, thus ruining the Avengers' legacy. Fortunately, everyone escapes and Wanda manages to contain the explosion and T'Challa takes Zemo into custody for his crimes ([[YouKilledMyFather one of which was killing his father in the UN Complex explosion]]).]]

One form of TakingYouWithMe is when a villain deliberately sets up a LoadBearingBoss situation, hoping to collapse his lair on the victorious heroes (over cries of "You'll kill us both\all!"). When cornered, one might decide that it's BetterToDieThanBeKilled, and take a CyanidePill; too bad that those don't bring down the opponent with you. Alternatively, the ''threat'' of taking an attacker down with you can allow you to achieve a VictoryThroughIntimidation. If this action is taken by a usually stoic villain, may have been preceded by a VillainousBreakdown. If [[ApocalypseHow all of the universe/reality]] is included with "you", this becomes a SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum.

A LastStand is a prolonged version of this, involving more characters. It may, in fact, have several TakingYouWithMe incidents in it. This trope often goes hand-in-hand with DoNotGoGentle.

* ''Literature/TheRuinsOfAnAmericanPartySystem'' has a purely unintentional example. When Huey Long votes for the Civil Rights Act as a final political act before killing himself to avoid jail time for corruption, the shock causes his ideological rival Governor Eugene Talmadge to drop dead of a heart attack.

* Directly invoked by Enjolras and the other revolutionaries in ''Theatre/LesMiserables''; when they realize that [[spoiler:no one is coming to help them and that they are going to die]], they promise to "make them bleed while we can". [[spoiler:Given how quickly they go down, they likely weren't too successful]].

See also SealedEvilInADuel, SelfDestructiveCharge, MutualKill, and HeroicSacrifice. May occur after crossing the GodzillaThreshold. The DoubleKnockout is a nonlethal cousin of this trope. May be the purpose of some variants of a [[DeadManSwitch Deadman's Switch]]. Compare LastDitchMove for (not necessarily lethal or even offensive) scripted final actions. A SoreLoser might resort to this if they're upset enough. Contrast VillainsDyingGrace. Not to be confused with [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe Taking Them Home With Me]]. It also should not be confused with BackstabBackfire, where the death of the person trying to do a last ditch effort in killing his enemy did not plan the possibility of death when attempting to backstab them after being defeated.

May be the purpose of some variants of a [[DeadManSwitch Deadman's Switch]]. Compare LastDitchMove for (not necessarily lethal or even offensive) scripted final actions. Someone pulling the SelfPoisoningGambit may be doing this if they don't have any means to counteract the poison. A SoreLoser might resort to this if they're upset enough. Contrast VillainsDyingGrace.
