** D'Anna Biers is DrivenToSuicide for a different reason: After her first death, she becomes obsessed with the "place between life and death" and begins to kill herself...[[ImmortalLifeIsCheap over and over]] in hopes of glimpsing into something she isn't supposed to know. She gets an actual one [[spoiler: after the Fleet comes across the nuked remains of Earth]]. She chooses to stay behind and presumably dies. Since she was [[spoiler: the only living Number Three at the time, this action also [[StealthPun ends her line]]]].

* ''Series/{{Accused}}''In "Frankie's Story" Frankie's friend Peter is bullied ruthlessly by the other soldiers, led by their corporal, after he cracks under fire. This leads to him shooting himself. In "Tina's Story" Stephen Cartwright reappears when he enters a juvenile prison to start his time. After only a short time, he hangs himself. This spurs the episode's plot, as Tina blames another guard who didn't move him to a cell with another prisoner where he could be watched as she asked.

* In the ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode "Bully", a corporate boss shoots herself after video footage of her abusing a timid business partner is leaked and her business is ruined. She [[NeverMyFault castigates her late partner, the media, her employees and police]] at a press conference before killing herself, saying it was their fault. It's possibly a reference to the public suicide of former Pennsylvania treasurer R. Budd Dwyer, who shot himself during a press conference (his behavior was far less acrimonious though). This inspired the song "Hey Man Last Shot" by Music/Filter.

** The German pilot in "Steel Hand From the Sea", who has come to doubt both the usefulness of his past actions and Germany's chances against the British air force. Kluge suggests that he has become a DeathSeeker and recommends that, if so, he should commit suicide properly because seeking death by British airman would be unfair on the rest of the crew of his plane. Near the end of the episode he is shown contemplating Kluge's advice, but events intervene before he comes to a decision whether to take the plunge.
** In "V for Victory", an islander is presented with a choice: he will be sent to a labor camp on the mainland unless he gives up a friend who has been leaving subversive messages around town (which will get the friend the death penalty). These, the Germans tell him, are his only two options. Rather than accept either, he commits suicide.
