* Creator/{{Socrates}} is traditionally considered to have died in this way after being poisoned with hemlock, which was a standard method of (relatively) humane execution for political prisoners in [[AncientGreece ancient Athens]]. The issue is under contention since no one is exactly certain which "hemlock" it was. Enid Bloch's exhaustive essay [[https://web.archive.org/web/20120206212323/https://www3.nd.edu/~plato/bloch.htm ''Hemlock Poisoning and the Death of Socrates: Did Plato Tell the Truth?'']] suggests the plant was ''Conium maculatum'', which does cause a creeping paralysis and painless death in the manner described: "Socrates died gently and peacefully, just as Creator/{{Plato}} said he did. For Plato not only told the truth, he did so with astounding medical accuracy."

After being framed as a traitor and facing desertion charges, Yankee Doodle agrees to the easy way out to save face.

* Parodied in ''Series/TheStrangeCalls'': Older mentor figure Gregor has been attacked with a serum that will turn him into a tree. Lying on a stretcher in an ambulence, he quietly accepts his fate, and offers some last wishes to a tear-stricken Banks. His last words before fading away: "If any dogs piss on me, shoot them." Further subverted in that these turn out to be PartingFromConsciousnessWords, as the nurses had just sedated him.


* Nero of the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' movie quietly faces his death, even as his ship is ripped apart around him as it sits halfway in a black hole. He was offered the opportunity to escape, but chose to go down with his ship.

both smile and reassure performed their friends [[spoiler: mutual HeroicSacrifice, killing each other to ensure that Londo's awakened Keeper wouldn't force Londo to betray Sheridan and Delenn as they escaped Minbar]], in the flash-forward scene in "War Without End". At that point, the two were no longer enemies but friends, so [[spoiler: their long-prophesied strangling of each other was not actually out of violent anger (at least not until the Keeper woke up). Londo {{Lampshaded}} the Prophecy by saying "we have unfinished business, you and I", and he said "I'm sure you're as tired of your life as I am".]]
** [[spoiler: Sheridan's]] farewell and going to his predicted death in the series finale.
** Centauri Emperor Turhan also faced his death with a graceful dignity. He wanted to make sure he could apologize to the Narn for their past occupation
before dying. The latter he died, and make peace with them, which was why he came to Babylon 5--although that overture sadly failed due to the scheming of Londo and Refa.
*** Subverted with Tuhan, in fact. While this was arguably his intent (before he died, he wanted to stand before a Narn in neutral space and personally, if not officially, apologize), but his failing health robbed him of that chance (as did the afforementioned scheming). He also very much wanted to meet a Vorlon, and Kosh indeed stops by Turhan's sickbed shortly before his death. When Turhan asks the Vorlon "How will it end?" Kosh replies "In fire," which
is resurrected, only not what the poor old man wanted to choke hear. Finally, his last words, after being informed that Refa and Mollari have struck a decisive blow against the Narn, is a whispered "We are all damned." Turhan wanted the ObiWanMoment, but got a TraumaCongaLine.

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E13LastOfTheTimeLords "Last of the Time Lords"]], [[spoiler:the Master]] smiles at the Doctor as he calmly dies [[spoiler:having refused to regenerate after being shot]]. Of course, his death is essentially a big "screw you" to the Doctor, and he apparently had plans in place for his resurrection.

But he ends up this way. And then [[spoiler: Tosh]] who is talking to him over a radio communicator convinces him to go out this way, and that's while ''she's also dying'', and not long after, she also does her own version.

* Series/TinMan: While he doesn't die [[spoiler: immediately]] after doing it, the Mystic Man smiles serenely and clasps Cain on the back before charging out to make his HeroicSacrifice, buying the heroes time to escape the Longcoats.
* For someone so full of energy and excitement throughout his life, [[spoiler: Chris]] from ''Series/{{Skins}}'' has an oddly peaceful, serene look on his face when he dies in S2.
