I'd argue that, while Braveheart and 300 end with the deaths of the main characters, the final battle that truly ends both pictures is a defeat for the bad guys.

They would fall more under "movies where the main character dies" than anything.

Yes, I would agree with that.
The movie has to have the real bad guy who is one of the main characters defeat the good guys (gals) and come out triumphantly.

My vote for the day:

A lot of horror movies do this. Two that come to mind are:

The Evil Dead
Jeepers Creepers

I'll also add:
Unforgiven

I'm also wondering how that's debatable. Debatable that the bad guy won, or debatable that he's bad?

Open to interpretation???
Spoiler:
It was pretty clear that Motoko was in a severe state of existentialist angst and clinically depressed. She wanted what happened to happen. She essentially disobeyed orders to get inside. The Puppeteer (project 2501) was the hero of the movie. Motoko became part of a God. When asked in the second one if she was happy she stated that she had no qualms. She had meta-qualms before she merged with the hero of part one.
