See also:

  • Going Down with the Ship (A Heroic Sacrifice for the sake of honor, rather than saving lives, usually.)
  • Hesitant Sacrifice (Commonly found attached to the examples above, in particular "Someone Has to Die".)
  • Last Stand (You aren't saving anyone else immediately close to you, but you're going to stay alive as long as you can to make your enemy pay.)
  • Not Afraid to Die (Can be the aversion to Hesitant Sacrifice, or it can be partnered with it.)
  • Obi-Wan Moment (Too many Heroic Sacrifices to count.)
  • Sealed Evil in a Duel (A Heroic Sacrifice, where the hero doesn't technically die.)
