* In the 1978 ''Film/DawnOfTheDead'', Peter contemplates committing suicide but changes his mind as he rushes off to the helicopter to the sound of heroic music. So he can live a life in a world covered by zombies, yay. The original script had Peter kill himself but ExecutiveMeddling called for a "happier" ending. In [[Film/DawnOfTheDead2004 the remake]] of the movie Michael gets bitten and, after getting the other survivors away on a boat, shoots himself.
* The Harold Lloyd film ''NeverWeaken'' revolves entirely around his multiple suicide attempts after being jilted. Since they all play out in Lloyd's typical "thrill comedy" style, and we know there's no way he'll actually succeed, it's okay to laugh.

* In ''Film/{{Thor}}'', it appears that suicide by collapsing wormhole is [[spoiler: [[AntiVillain Loki]]]]'s response to the realization that [[WellDoneSonGuy his father]] would never condone his actions, and indeed he is assumed dead by his family and the rest of Asgard. [[spoiler: Subverted [[ChekhovsSkill with precedent]], however, in TheStinger, when he is shown to be alive and well and close to grabbing the Tessaract.]]
* ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'':
** [[spoiler: Bruce]] reveals that they once tried to attempt suicide but [[spoiler:the Hulk took control and "spat the bullet out"]]
** Subverted with [[spoiler: Selvig]] who had been [[spoiler: mind-controlled by Loki for most of the film]].

But it turned out he wasn't looking at the ground but at [[spoiler: Loki's scepter a few floors down which was the key to closing the alien portal]].
