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.

* ''NuclearWar'' has the "Retaliatory Strike" rule where a player who has lost the last of his population may immediately launch all of his missles and warheads at whomever he likes. If one of his targets is eliminated in the process, then that nation may make a retaliatory strike of his own. It's possible to launch the unique 100 Megaton warhead in the hopes of getting a lucky roll and destroying the world in the process.
* In ''MagicTheGathering'' any spell that deals damage to both you and an opponent such as [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=190551 Earthquake]] or [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=21149 Pestilence]] can be used for this.

*** Just before this moment, there's a subversion when Gilgamesh grabs Shirou with his chain. Shirou ''assumes'' that Gilgamesh is trying to pull this trope on him, but Gil is quick to tell him to stay right where he is so that he can pull himself out of the aforementioned sphere of nothingness.

** EVA-02's self-destruction against the MP-EVAs. However it is not Asuka who sacrifices herself. It's Kyoko who, after bidding her daughter goodbye, ejects her before blowing herself up.

* Orthodox Christianity states that that is one of major reasons of why demons want to kill us through sins. They are already doomed, and they want to drag us to the eternal torment, as we are made in Lord's image. Talk about EvilIsPetty!

* In the ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' storyline ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'', after her plan to destroy [[spoiler:Worldkiller-1 -a body-snatching, genocidal alien abomination-]] fails, [[spoiler:Supergirl]] decides that the only way to kill it is killing herself while it is trying to steal her body, so [[spoiler:she removes her [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Ring]], which usually results in instant death of the bearer]].



* The Joker is often so AxeCrazy that he's willing to include himself among his victims if that will get his point across. In the ''Spider-Man/Batman'' crossover, for example, he couldn't bear the thought of [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou Carnage killing Batman]], and threatened to spring a lethal virus that would have likely killed everyone in the city - himself included - unless Carnage backed off. (And neither Batman nor Spider-Man thought for a second that he was bluffing.)

* In ''ComicBook/XMen'', at the end of the Inferno arc, Madelyne Pryor tries to trap Jean in her dying mind and thus take her with her, recreating the incident that awakened Jean's powers in the first place (Jean nearly died inside the mind of her friend Annie, who was run over -- Madelyne was given this memory by Sinister). Madelyne would succeed if it weren't for the Phoenix Force offering Jean the opportunity to live if she absorbs both Phoenix and Madelyne's personalities.
