** During the climax of ''Theatre/WaterworldALiveSeaSpectacular'', after which the Deacon is set on fire, he attempts to knock the Mariner over the edge of the Atoll with him, but hilariously misses and plunges to his doom. Sometimes, he'll even say the trope word-for-word.

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. 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. 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.

** ''ForgottenRealms'' dragonmagic includes "death matrix". Needs to be cast only once, after this the dragon's body will explode upon death, unless disintegrated or something like. As an implanted magic ability, it can't be detected or dispelled like normal waiting enchantments.

*** The 3rd edition splatbook "The Slayers Guide to Dragons" gives us the new age category "Dracos Invictus". When dying, these dragons have death throes that cause 10D6 crush damage, variable explosive damage from 8D6 (white) to 14D10 (red/gold), '''and''' can enact a curse so powerful on the PCs that the DM is ''encouraged to alter the course of the campaign'' to see that it's fulfilled. There is no save against the curse.

* 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.''
