* 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.

** 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''!"

** {{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."

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': "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.
** Another ''Doctor Who'' example: 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.

** Yet another ''Series/DoctorWho'' example: In the new series episode "Doomsday", a Cyberman, who formerly was the director of the Torchwood Facility, turns on its cybernetic fellows at the last possible moment before they break in on Our Heroes and stop them saving the day; this rebellious Cyberman even ''says'' "You shall 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.

** Still another example from ''Doctor Who'', when 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.
** From Part 3 of "The War Machines" back in the William Hartnell era of ''Doctor Who''. 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.

** Does no one remember Jack Harkness? In "The Parting of the Ways" he stopped 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 broke 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'd been told to run, came back with a machine gun.]]
