* An optional rule in ''{{Earthdawn}}'' allows players to do a "dying act." The character is allowed to spend all of their karma dice on a single roll, after which he or she is [[DeaderThanDead dead beyond the reach of any resurrection magic.]] If the roll in question is a damage roll, it becomes this trope.

* The DixieChicks song ''If I Fall You're Going down with me'' is an [[InvertedTrope inversion]] of this trope since the song is actually about falling in love as opposed to dying.

* Being a game of supremely high stakes, often high-energy magic, and doomed romanticism, ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' and its spin-offs maybe encourage this sort of mind-set. Notably, the Renaissance-period version, ''Mage: The Sorcerers Crusade'' featured references to High Artisan Magistrate Roland Hoffmann, whose artillery were crucial to the defeat of Infernal powers at the Battle of Harz. And when the enemy got through to his guns, Hoffmann and his crews detonated their gunpowder stores, taking down everything on that side of the battlefield.

* [[https://youtu.be/LUQV9zZaNX8 Second Chances]] by d.notive. Basically, the whole album is about a police detective who accidentally travelled 30 years back in time and is going to use the opportunity to hunt down and prevent the maniac from murdering his younger sister this time. And this song clearly states his intentions regarding the man he's after, literally qouting the trope.
--> ''I'm not promised a way back,''\\
''And if I die, I'm taking you with me.''

* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', Grand King Ghidorah is mortally wounded by Godzilla Junior impaling him through his core (the organ that serves as both his heart and brain) while Xenilla has him distracted, liberating the countless souls he'd devoured that begin tearing his body apart during their escape. Grand King Ghidorah's response is to attempt this trope by channeling all of his power into a [[WaveMotionGun super charged Gravity beam capable of leveling a continent]] in an attempt to take the brothers and all of Equestria down with him. With some help from Rarity, [[GodOfGood Harmony]], and [[BackUpFromOtherworld Godzilla Senior]], they manage to win the resulting BeamOWar and Grand King Ghidorah is the only one that dies.

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.
