Add Tag:
A hero who refuses to be back down against the Evil Overlord and bites the dust with fighting spirit intact, if nothing else. Might manage to motivate others to resist, though one has to wonder: Why does his dying a miserable death after losing everything he ever had encourage anyone to get on this villain's bad side? Actually it's a whole stock plot. Examples (I think those are examples, I haven't watched them attentively): Gladiator, Braveheart. Are there others?
