* ''Webcomic/KidRadd'': [[spoiler:Bogey lets the titular character kill him in the final chapter, dropping a power-up that saves his life from an imminent, apocalyptic blast. It's [[TearJerker very effective.]]]] [[spoiler: [[BackFromTheDead He gets better though.]]]]
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Nanase experiences the pain of death repeatedly (through the repeated destruction of her fairy-doll avatar) during her fight with Abraham for Ellen's life. She has to be hospitalized afterward due to the extreme expenditure of magic and loses her magic completely for over 2 months.
* Played with in ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'': when the heroes, [[IDidWhatIHadToDo in desperation]], decide to kill the CardCarryingVillain Bob by [[ColonyDrop dropping an asteroid on his fortress]] even though the impact will also [[TakingYouWithMe kill the heroes]] and the many, many innocent people who happen to be to be within the range. Bob decides that, since he's going to die anyway, he might as be the only one who does, so he [[SuperpowerMeltdown blows himself up to stop the asteroid]]. Of course, they NeverFoundTheBody...

As a result, "Agatha [[UnstoppableRage Flips Out]]". It also [[ItHasBeenAnHonor earns him incredible respect]] from the Jagermonsters. Maxim even gives up his hat (the one thing Jagers prize above all else) to be buried with Lars, because he's made himself as good as a Jager with his act, and no Jager should be buried without a hat. Maxim walks hatless from that point on, until he acquires the replacement in a suitably epic mini-arc.
* ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'': [[spoiler: Bogroll taking down ''Lord Ansom himself''.]] There's no possible greater glory for the lovable oaf.
* ''ComicStrip/{{Fleep}}''. After [[TomatoInTheMirror discovering a very nasty truth about his past actions]], Jimmy gives up his chance of being rescued in order to assure that another civilian would survive. Jimmy's own internal monologue downplays the heroism of the sacrifice--he just wants to see his wife, and [[spoiler:now that she's dead,]] redemption is the only shot he has at ever seeing her again.
* ''Webcomic/MobTies'': Mika was very nearly killed by [[BigBad Bengal]], but for Kyoko, the LoveFreak GenkiGirl, leaping in front of the knife that would have killed her.

** General Tagon (Captain Tagon's father) comes at this from a strategic angle. If you're going to sacrifice someone, it should be someone you care for--if it's someone you hate, it's not a sacrifice, it's ''murder''. This ends about as you'd expect.
-->'''Captain Kevyn:''' You have many friends, general?\\
'''General Tagon:''' Alive? No, not really.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': [[spoiler: Jade sacrifices her Dream Self to push John out of the way of an oncoming meteor in the End of Act 4.]]
** Another one happens in Act 5, "Hivebent", when [[spoiler: Sollux withstands the MindRape of an EldritchAbomination's cry just long enough to get Feferi into the Medium.]]
*** Feferi allows her dream self to get killed so she can prove the Horrorterrors of the Furthest Ring aren't at all something to be feared, so she can [[YourMindMakesItReal interact with Jade on a more personal level]].
*** Sollux has another go at it when he [[spoiler: overexerts his powers to propel the asteroid to the green sun before their window of opportunity passes.]]

It finally does, to their relief and joy, only for a group of guards to charge towards them. The ogre in the group pushes the others towards the exit, grabs a spear and goes to meet the guards. Two pages later, you see two of the guards stabbing him repeatedly.
** Subverted in the same arc a few pages later. Complains tells Big Ears that he's badly injured and can't move, so Big Ears will have to--and Big Ears cuts him off, furiously telling him he won't leave him behind. Complains stares at him for a moment, then:
--> Are you high?! I was ''going'' to say you should find a board or something to put me on, and you could maybe drag me out of here! Damn ''right'' you're not leaving me behind!
** Played with in the case of [[spoiler: Chief]], who stayed behind to fight [[HeroKiller Kore]] to allow the rest of his group a chance to escape and hide in a dungeon crawl.

But the battle was being lost due to the dinosaurs' ultimate weapon, the Horrorsaurus. In a moment of honor and courage, Chuck provoked the Horrorsaurus into attacking him so the [=NASAGhast=] would kill it, but the spirit didn't act quickly enough to prevent his gruesome death.
* Karnak, the Demon Lord of Wounds from ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'', is an odd candidate for this. Especially since his sacrifice was what lead to him [[http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2006-04-13 physically entering hell and becoming a Demon Lord.]]
** A less odd candidate is Klo Tark, who switches places with Dominic when the latter is about to be annihilated in a foreign plane.
