* In ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', the famous "To be, or not to be" line is from a soliloquy of the title character after he found that his uncle Claudius had killed his father Hamlet Sr. and had married his mother Gertrude, and comparing the shock to that of someone contemplating suicide. One interpretation is that Ophelia's death really is a suicide.
** Third example from ''Hamlet'' is Horatio, who attempts to die with Hamlet by drinking the remainder of the poisoned wine that killed Gertrude. Hamlet has to wrestle the chalice away from him and talk him into living. It's not the most inspiring speech, but it works.
** Also from Creator/WilliamShakespeare, in ''Theatre/KingLear'', after Gloucester is blinded, he asks someone to take him to a cliff so he can jump off. The disguised Edgar takes him up on it, but tricks him into thinking he's at a cliff when really he's on a flat plain. It can be hard to direct; after all, if not pulled off correctly, the scene can just [[IncrediblyLamePun fall flat on its face]].
** ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' both kill themselves at the end, Romeo because he wanted to join Juliet in death (but tragically, he didn't know that Juliet was only FakingTheDead because the information that Friar Lawrence had intended for him never arrived), and Juliet because she wanted to join Romeo in death.
