  • Pretty much what [[Literature/BookOfJudges Judge Samson]] did in the Philistine Temple.

I don't think this one qualifies for this trope. While it was definitely a taking you with me, at that point Samson had survived a long enough imprisonment for his hair to grow long again. The conditions outlined in the book do not mention him possibly being killed. The Philistines were going to gloat, oh yes, that's why they hauled him into the temple in the first place. But there was nothing to say they were going to do more.

Plus, it's a Zero-Context Example. Why does that fit this trope?

A fan theory. Interesting, but it belongs on the work's WMG or other relevant page.

  • There's also a popular fan theory that Foxface's death wasn't accidental and that she knew perfectly well that she was eating poisonous berries, choosing to commit suicide on her own terms rather than being killed in some brutal fashion by the other tributes or the gamemakers. The theory goes that she made it look like an accident so her loved ones wouldn't get into trouble.

Edit: Plonking this here on the basis it's too general for a wiki example.

Edit 2: * In more of a political death, Richard Nixon decided (or had it decided for him, depending on how you look at it) to resign from the Presidency once it came out that he had explicitly told his associates to stonewall or cover up what they knew of Watergate.

This trope is about literal death. This might fit somewhere else.
