* In Creator/LarryNiven's "[[Literature/KnownSpace The Borderland of Sol]]", the villain saves the life of two of the three protagonists by increasing the air pressure in his breached asteroid habitat, before being [[KarmicDeath sucked into]] his miniature black hole, allowing the protagonists an extra bit of time for rescuers to find them.
** In another Niven story, ''A Relic of Empire'', explorer Dr. Richard Mann is trying to evade a murderous space pirate who calls himself Captain Kidd. Mann manages to blow up Kidd's ship. Before Kidd dies in the fire, he radios Mann and tells him a valuable secret: the location of the Puppeteer's homeworld, something all of Known Space has wanted to know.
** A Creator/StephenBaxter short story, ''More Than Time Or Distance'', is similar to that story. The dying villain calls the heroine a WorthyOpponent, and tells her where to find his ship so she can get home.

* In ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', when the protagonists are trying to outrun an overwhelming enemy force, the Darkfriend Lord Ingtar chooses to buy them time by [[YouShallNotPass blocking a choke point]], sacrificing his life to renounce the Shadow. Unusually for the trope, he is TheMole, and outs himself as a villain solely for the chance at redemption.
