This isn't quite a HeroicSacrifice or RedemptionEqualsDeath -- they would have died anyway -- but at the least it shows they weren't completely evil and still retained a measure of nobility as a FallenHero, NobleDemon or AntiHero. Sadly, this is definitely not enough for RedemptionEarnsLife. In a best case scenario, they DiedHappilyEverAfter. It is one way to make characters and audience lament AlasPoorVillain though not necessary.

* In NewDanganRonpaV3, after getting two of his classmates killed in the previous chapter, [[spoiler: Kokichi Ouma]] ends up getting killed...but it turns out [[spoiler: he decided to die in a way that would result in a case that's impossible for Monokuma to know who died, thus ending the killing game and preventing [[ActionGirl Maki]] from becoming the blackened. This is especially notable as he went out of his way to paint himself as evil throughout the game, yet he ''hated'' the game, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone came to really regret orchestrating the deaths of Gonta and Miu]] and previously treated Maki with contempt for being a ProfessionalKiller.]]

* The Hellfire Club, in their early days, was presented as more amoral than evil, and it showed in the death of one of their Inner Circle. In battle with the ultimate Sentinel Nimrod, alongside their enemies the Xmen, Harry Leland of the Hellfire Club stresses out, and the overweight gravity/mass manipulator suffers a massive heart attack. Rather than just give up or give in, however, he manages to hang on to life long enough to use his own teammate, invulnerable mutant Sebastian Shaw, as a human Kinetic Kill Weapon onto Nimrod with his literal final efforts.

* The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants were close to assassinating anti-mutant Senator Robert Kelly until former Brotherhood member Pyro, dying of the Legacy Virus, stopped them before the virus killed him. His actions forced Kelly to rethink his anti-mutant stance and probably prevented the disastrous age of Sentinels.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout1}}'', if the Vault Dweller presents The Master with compelling evidence that his plan to "unify" the wasteland is doomed as the Mutants are all sterile, he'll self-destruct his own base (he cannot leave due to his own mutation) while giving the Dweller a chance to escape before it goes down.
