Jonathan Brisby is the husband of Mrs. Brisby and father of their four children in The Secret of NIMH. He was the bravest of all the street rats and mice.

Alas, he couldn't save himself from getting killed by the farmer's cat Dragon while drugging him. He had sacrificed himself to save the rodents.
