* In ''VideoGame/TerrariaCalamity'', we have [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GcPA3C0QeI "Roar of The Jungle Dragon"]], the second phase theme of the Jungle Dragon, Yharon, who is implied to have realized that it is already doomed to fail, but will keep fighting anyway [[UndyingLoyalty out of loyalty to Yharim]]. To quote the song itself:
--> If you proceed, I will not blame you.\\
I will move forth and win your war.\\
But if I should die before you continue,\\
You shall have heard my final dying roar.

* "Sh'ma" from ''Theatre/{{Parade}}'' could be argued to be this, as Leo is about to die. The ''Sh'ma'' is the central prayer of Judaism, and the last thing a Jewish person is supposed to say before they die.

to:

* "Stay Alive (Reprise)" from ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', where [[spoiler:Hamilton's son Philip is dying from a gunshot wound]]. "The World Was Wide Enough" is one for Hamilton himself. The finale, "Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story" is a combination of this and DistantFinale, as it addresses the future and eventual deaths of a number of major characters, ending with Eliza, who sings about her achievements in the fifty years she outlived Alexander before reuniting with him in the final moments of the show.

** "No Reply", a song that never actually plays anywhere in the series, is part of the "Knocking on Heaven's Door OST Future Blues" soundtrack. The song details how the singer laments how he'll never be with the woman he loves, a woman who doesn't know he loves her, but has always supported him at every turn. A woman who will never know how he feels about her as [[DrivenToSuicide he has already jumped from the top of a building]].
