This is what happens when somebody is Too Cool to Live. This character is often relegated by ThePlotReaper to the job of being a HeroicSacrifice, or the SixthRanger. Many a wise and awesome [[TheMentor mentor]] has [[MentorOccupationalHazard fallen victim]] to this trope. Depending on how it happens, such a death can be a severe example of TheWorfEffect.

TheWorfEffect. There's also a very strong overlap with SacrificialLion.

** [[spoiler:Shadow of Lasciel]][[note]]A weak carbon copy of the Fallen Angel but with all her knowledge and personality[[/note]] started off as a villain to tempt Harry and turn him evil. But his inner goodness and stubbornness lead to years of resisting its charms and temptations [[spoiler:for three years, when most people submit to a Fallen's Shadow in less than a month. No one lasted this long. After Harry notes that as something living in his head, which is malleable enough to be turned evil, she can be the victim of the same aspect. She can change, and after said three years, she is no longer the same Shadow he first met. So, he calls her Lash]] and this kick starts her quick HeelFaceTurn. However, [[spoiler:as she would be able to grant Harry perfect memory, perfect recall, the knowledge of a Fallen Angel without needing him to sacrifice his morals]] the former villain would be a huge GameBreaker in-universe. So a HeroicSacrifice was used to remove the redeemed villain.
