*** Kor was a legendary but disgraced Klingon, managing to survive so long as a warrior he was going senile. In "Once More Unto The Breach", he took command of a damaged vessel, and lead a skeleton crew of volunteers on a suicide mission to delaying a Jem'Hadar squadron from overtaking the Klingon task force they were chasing. This was deemed so impressive by the Klingons on the ship he'd been serving on (even Martok, who hated the man) that they all broke out in song, including Martok . Truly a warrior's death.

** ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': In "Yesterday's Enterprise", the ''Enterprise'' is being attacked by three Klingon warbirds; Riker states that they can outrun them, but Picard orders the ship to stand fast and fight the Klingons so as to allow the past ''Enterprise'' to escape. Prompts the famous line, "Let us make sure history never forgets. The name. ''ENTERPRISE''!"

*** In "Blaze of Glory", Eddington single-handedly masterminded a scheme to save his people AFTER his whole FaceHeelTurn--not to mention being captured and imprisoned by Starfleet--and then went down fighting to ensure that everyone escaped.

** "Tomb of the Cybermen". The Doctor and Jamie attempt to close the electrified doors to the tombs, sealing the Cyber Controller inside. When they realize that doing so would kill them as well, even if they could overcome the Controller's attempts to force its way out, the enormous Toberman pushes them aside, declares, "You shall not pass Toberman: The door is closed," and forces the doors shut, killing himself and ([[BackFromTheDead apparently]]) the Cyber Controller.
** In the new series episode "Tooth and Claw", a character who had previously betrayed the Queen repents, and so of course [[RedemptionEqualsDeath has to die]], so he volunteers to sacrifice himself to give the main characters more time to escape the werewolf, despite the fact that normal humans with guns had previously been shown not to slow it down at all. His death is not shown directly, so it is not known if or how he actually slowed it down.

** In the new series episode "Doomsday", a Cyberman, formerly the director of the Torchwood Institute, turns on its cybernetic fellows at the last possible moment before they break in on the Doctor & Rose and stop them saving the day; this rebellious Cyberman even ''says'' "You will not pass" twice, and then mows down the other Cybers with an electric rifle. It's actually a very touching moment. Then comes the [[TearsFromAStone single black tear]]; borders on Narm but we'll let it pass.

** In the new series episode "Dalek", one of the soldiers tries to hold off a fully-charged Dalek with a pistol. We then see a flash of light, the sound of a Dalek shot and a scream. Then we see the Dalek approaching.
** Part 3 of "The War Machines" back in the Creator/WilliamHartnell era. In the last scene of the episode, a rampant robot is bearing down on the (characteristically) useless army and random civilian director-type-people. They all turn and run for cover, but the Doctor stands his ground in what could be more of a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMoA]] too.
** In the episode "The Stolen Earth" in the recent series, the American UNIT general and random RedShirt single-handedly stand against an oncoming Dalek force to give Martha Jones time to teleport away. [[spoiler: ... and of course, get lasered rather quickly. I mean, come on, these are Daleks.]]
** In "The Parting of the Ways" Captain Jack Harkness stops at the entrance to the main part of Floor 500, holding off several [[ImmuneToBullets Daleks with a 19th-century handgun]] to give the Doctor an extra twenty seconds. YouShallNotPass, indeed.
** In "The Wedding of River Song", we get Rory versus The Silence. The device that lets him remember them is booby trapped and causing him ''agonizing pain,'' but he keeps it on so he can remember them and cover the escape of Amy, the Doctor, and River Song once the Silence break in. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it gets too bad for even him once the juice gets cranked up. The Silence ''still'' don't get to pass, because Amy, who was told to run, comes back with a machine gun.]]

** Marcus Cole does this to Neroon in the episode "Grey 17 is Missing". Clips over part of the episode show Marcus getting his ass kicked. While he is prepared to meet his death to make this delay as long as possible, Neroon spares his life. Neroon then immediately concedes that Delenn is the proper leader of the Rangers by saying "They would die for you; I don't think I could make them die for me."

* As in its [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire source material]], ''[[LiveActionTV A Game Of Thrones]]'' features [[MasterSwordsman Syrio Forel]] holding off a Kingsguard knight and several Lannister mooks with a wooden sword while his student Arya escapes. However, we never directly see a killing stroke inflicted on him, and his head is not amongst the ones adorning spikes on the wall (like Ned's or Septa Mordane's), so whether he's dead or not is [[EpilepticTrees left ambiguous]].

*** Kor was a legendary but disgraced Klingon, managing to survive so long as a warrior he was going senile. In "Once More Unto The Breach", he took command of a damaged vessel with no living crew left, singlehandedly destroying/delaying a Jem'Hadar squadron from overtaking the Klingon task force they were chasing. This was deemed so impressive by the Klingons on the ship he'd been serving on (even Martok, who hated the man) that they all broke out in song, save Martok because he still hated the man. Truly a warrior's death.

* The Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}} is being pummelled to oblivion by Cylon Basestars....when suddenly the far more badass Battlestar Pegasus shows up and starts stomping on the Cylons. The ship [[HeroicSacrifice is destroyed]] taking out the last Cylon ships so that Galactica can escape. Possibly the most Awesome Moment of Awesome on that show.
