* 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]].

** And later Yoren tries to do the same for Arya and Gendry. It doesn't work.


Added DiffLines:

** Jorah Mormont does it twice, first against Viserys when he tries to steal dragon eggs and later against a battle-hardened Dothraki fighter. Fittingly, his family motto is "Here We Stand."

* Subverted twice in ''PersonOfInterest''. In "Firewall". Reese stays behind to battle a hit team while the POI escapes. [[spoiler:Of course that's exactly what she wants, leaving her free to kidnap Finch (who's waiting with the escape car) without his interference. Turns out she's the sociopathic hacker Root.]] In "Shadow Box" Reese gets [[spoiler: arrested by the FBI]] due to the exact same circumstances of staying behind to fight off the opposition.

*** 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.

Truly a warrior's death.
** Eddington single handedly master minded 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.
* In an alternate timeline in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', 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''!"

Janeway attempted to sacrifice Voyager on a number of occasions, and at least one version of Janeway succeeds.

** {{Subverted|Trope}} with the Battle of the Line. The [[OurElvesAreBetter Minbari]] rolled into the Sol system, [[CurbStompBattle effortlessly trampling]] the human fleets and bases arrayed against them, and on their way to Earth with the intent to KillAllHumans. The President of Earth made a passionate speech urging any volunteers to fight to the bitter end and buy time for others to flee Earth to neutral territory. As luck would have it, [[CombatAestheticist the Minbari]] themselves happened to be so [[WorthyOpponent impressed]] by her emotional plea and humanity's general {{Determinator}} spirit throughout the one-sided war, that they called the attack off and made peace.

** The Battle of the Line probably also qualifies, seeing as they were attempting to buy time for transports to evacuate as many civilians from Earth as possible.
--->"Hold the line. No one gets through, no matter what."
