Examples of characters sacrificing themselves to save others:
- Cut the Safety Rope
- Heroic Suicide
- Jumping on a Grenade
- Self-Destructive Charge (This can sometimes be played as an Heroic Sacrifice.)
- Self-Sacrifice Scheme
- Silent Scapegoat
- Someone Has to Die
- Suicide Mission
- Take Me Instead!
- Taking the Bullet
- You Shall Not Pass
Examples of this failing due to bad writing:
- Going Down with the Ship (An Heroic Sacrifice for the sake of honor, rather than saving lives, usually.)
- I Don't Want to Die (Commonly found attached to the examples above, in particular "Someone Has to Die".)
- Not Afraid to Die (Can be the aversion to I Don't Want to Die, or it can be partnered with it.)
- Obi-Wan Moment (Too many Heroic Sacrifices to count.)
- Sealed Evil in a Duel (An Heroic Sacrifice, where the hero doesn't technically die.)
- Taking You with Me (You're dead meat anyway, but dammit you're going to save the world. Or, doom it, if you're the villain.)
