* In the ''WesternAnimation/Sealab2021'' episode "The Policy", Murphy pulled this off when Sparks tried electrocuting him for the insurance money: he got close enough to Sparks to electrocute him as well. There seems to be no hard feelings between the two, as they both sit in hell casually comparing punishments.

* Dragon-Bloods in ''{{Exalted}}'' have access to a series of Charms with the Martyr keyword, which become significantly more terrifying when they're used by a dying man, many of which are combat effects. The most notorious is the Essence 7 elemental nuke called As In The Beginning, so a dying DB gets to take ''entire battlefields'' with him.

See also SealedEvilInADuel, SelfDestructiveCharge, MutualKill, and HeroicSacrifice. 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.
