Subtrope of GracefulLoser and DeathEqualsRedemption. Compare to HeelFaceDoorSlam where the villains never truly gets to redeem themselves. Not to be confused with CruelMercy. Can be used as a form of RestrainedRevenge.

* In the manga (but not the anime) of ''Manga/SazanEyes,'' after Yakumo mortally wounds the Ryo-Ko, Pai comforts it as it lies dying. Perhaps to repay her for this, it tells Pai and Yakumo about a secret passage that will lead them up to the roof of the burning hotel they're trapped in so their friends can rescue them.

Near death experiences have a tendency to change a person's outlook on life. Knowing you're going to die is no different; however, when faced with imminent death, villains by and large repent nothing and decide that if they're going to die, they try and [[TakingYouWithMe take you down with them]].

But on rare occasions, the villain will have a HeelRealization where they ask "MyGodWhatHaveIDone" as, faced with a lifetime of evil flashing in front of their eyes as the CollapsingLair implodes, they decide to do one good thing before they die: save the hero. They may cling to life so that [[LoadBearingBoss their death]] doesn't [[CollapsingLair collapse their castle]], or to hold back a wave of monsters. Perhaps they'll show them where their personal [[VillainExitStageLeft escape passage]] is hidden or briefly become a LoadBearingHero to let them escape. Another situation is where they feel they were beaten by a WorthyOpponent, and therefore the superior one should carry on.

* BloodDiamond has Danny Archer (who is either a VillainProtagonist or a pretty contemptible antihero,) do everything he can to help Solomon once he realises his bullet wound is going to prove fatal.
