* In ''Series/TheTudors'', the series version of Cardinal Wolsey perfectly illustrates this trope. Historically, he's said to have died of illness and exhaustion while being detained (and that is already quite ugly), but since he was a) stripped of all titles, offices and incomes, b) kicked out of the royal council, c) sent to jail, d) separated from his beloved Joan and their two children (Yeah, children. So what ? Priests must not ''marry''. That's all), and e) waiting to be trialed for treason, the issue of said trial quite painfully obvious, the suicide option seems sadly logical. Maybe this is a case of TruthInTelevision, we'll never know.

Added DiffLines:

** Castiel becomes so depressed in season 11 that he [[spoiler:offers himself as Lucifer's vessel]], which is tantamount to suicide. He ''was'' also desperate enough to hope it would solve the current crisis, but he appears to grow even more depressed as [[spoiler:the possession]] goes on, to the point where when Sam and Dean try to make contact with him via Crowley, he shows no real interest in [[spoiler:kicking Lucifer out]], and seems to feel that he might as well stay where he is and at least be useful one last time.

** Castiel, filled with regret over his decisions regarding Crowley and the souls in Purgatory, [[spoiler: actually ''does'' succeed in sort of committing suicide in Season 7 by walking into a lake. His "death" [[DeathIsCheap doesn't stick]], but in Season 8 he admits to Dean that he can't go back to Heaven, because if he sees what his actions have done to it, he may "kill himself".]]
