** In ''Literature/GhostStory'', we find out that Harry was murdered by Kincaid...after being hired to do so by Harry, so that he wouldn't become a monster as the Winter Knight. Harry then had Molly remove the memory of the arrangement from him, so that he wouldn't see it coming. Subverted because Mab saw it coming.[[ReliableTraitor She's not upset though]]. She also saves his life, because he fell in ''cold water'' and she's the Queen of Winter, otherwise it might have worked.

* ''Manga/OnePiece''. Pirate King Gold Roger allowed himself to be captured, as he knew he was already dying, and when the World Government was set to publicly execute him, in what should have been a chilling warning to all aspiring pirates, he turned their plan completely on its head by speaking the words that '''launched the Golden Age of Piracy.'''
--> '''Gold Roger''': "My wealth and treasures? If you want it, I'll let you have it...search for it! I left all of it at that place".
** 26 years later, Roger's old friend/[[TheRival rival]] Edward "Whitebeard" Newgate followed in his footsteps, as with his last breath he confirmed the existence of One Piece, inspiring a new generation of pirates.

* In the episode "Hitman" of ''LawAndOrder'', a man hired a hit man to kill him and then pin the crime on his wife and her lover. However, when his friend (who had unwittingly helped him put his plan into effect) came under investigation, it was revealed the man had a contingency plan in place in order to clear his friend's name: He made a tape before his death and admitted that he had put the hit out on himself. Despite this, he still got his revenge in the end because his wife didn't receive his life insurance money since his death was ultimately ruled a suicide.
