* In the ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' universe, quite a few people in backstories. Redd White in particular is apparently responsible for a large number of instances of this (as the driver, not the drivee).

** Something that's kinda overlooked by fans during early playthroughs is that [[spoiler:Shiina Mikado aka Misha]] also has suicidal tendencies. In [[spoiler: Shizune]]'s route, during a talk with Hisao, she tells him "Wouldn't it be better if I disappeared...?" In [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the beta to the game]], [[spoiler:[[StepfordSmiler Misha]]]] ''would'' have committed suicide in [[spoiler:Shizune's]] arc. Act 3 is full of her acting increasingly depressed and reveals her self-loathing, only to end with her getting hit by a car and dying soon afterwards. Act 4 is all about her friend [[spoiler:Shizune]] [[HeroicBSOD shutting down]] in grief. The BadEnd actually has her [[spoiler:essentially [[DeathByDespair kill herself]]. She dies of dehydration when hospitalized when she removes her IV]].
** One of the ''three'' {{Bad End}}s to [[spoiler:Hanako's]] beta arc has her jumping in front of train (in front of Hisao too) after undergoing a TraumaCongaLine. This is the closest thing to a Good End her arc has. To unlock the true Good End you need to have played her arc than play Lilly's arc, until a point comes where you can choose to unlock the true [[spoiler:Hanako]] end.

* Implied to be the fate of [[spoiler:Dr. Alphys]] in certain variants of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'''s Neutral ending. Broadly speaking, this usually occurs if you [[spoiler:kill Undyne or Mettaton]]. Does not occur in the GoldenEnding, but on the way there, you'll have a conversation with that character, after learning just ''why'' they might have "done something... cowardly" even if you did everything right.

** In [[BonusDungeon Aubrey's Uncommon Time]], we learn that their decision to participate in the hibernation experiment was effectively this; their depression was so extreme they felt that the only way they could have worth was to sacrifice themselves for Altair's success.

* ''VideoGame/UncommonTime'' has three examples:
** In Ending 6, [[spoiler:Meirin]] is absolutely distraught after the party fails to save her LoveInterest, and kills herself in the hotel room the next day.
** In Ending 4, [[spoiler:Saki]] and [[spoiler:Meirin]] ''both'' commit suicide. [[spoiler:In his suicide note, Saki explains that he's terminally ill, and preferred to die by his own hand than let it catch up to him. Meirin's reasoning is less clear; presumably, she couldn't bear to live without him.]]

** Also a part of [[spoiler: Flowey]]'s backstory. [[spoiler: After awaking as a flower in Asgore's garden, he eventually found that he couldn't feel any love or warmth from his parents. Not wanting to live in a world without love, he committed suicide. The only reason he is still alive is because, during his attempt, he realized he was afraid of actually dying, and that unwillingness to die caused him to wake back up in the garden as though nothing had ever happened. This is how he discovered his ability to save and load.]]

* Happens a few times in the ''Franchise/FatalFrame'' series:
** Lord Himuro kills himself after slaughtering everyone else in the mansion when the Calamity happened.
** Yae Munakata hangs herself after her daughter went missing. Years later, her granddaughter Miyuki does the same when she's no longer able to cope with seeing spirits.
** It's unclear if Sae Kurosawa hung herself or if the priests hung her, but Sae knew she was going to die and accepted it, certainly putting it close to suicide. [[spoiler: To make matters worse, she's Yae's twin sister. They died the exact same way.]]
** Itsuki Tachibana hangs himself after an attempt at helping Yae and Sae escape, not wanting to see them suffer the way he did after he [[spoiler: killed his twin brother.]]
** The fifth game, ''Maiden of Black Water'' has suicide as a prominent theme, seeing as how the cursed setting this time is a suicide hotspot, and how the ritual of the past involved shrine maidens witnessing suicides.
* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'':
** At the highest level of [[spoiler:[[HatePlague Hinamizawa Syndrome]]]] people claw out their throats.
** [[spoiler:Rena's]] backstory has her having attempted suicide in the past.
** [[spoiler:Rika]] decides to stab herself repeatedly in the throat instead of allowing [[spoiler:Shion]] to kill her.
** [[spoiler:Shion]] falls onto a rooftop but decides to push herself off after realizing the atrocities she's done.

** In the currently under-development ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', Yandere-chan can lower the reputation of a rival within the school to dire levels with malicious gossip either at school or on the internet, which will lead to the girl suffering serious bullying. If you lower a girl's reputation to -100, Senpai will reject her LoveConfession, which is enough for Yandere-chan to eliminate her as a rival for his affection. Lowering her reputation even ''further'' than that is a pure exercise in cruelty, and will eventually make things so bad for her that not only does the entire school hate her, but they ''want her to die'', which ultimately results in the poor girl hanging herself.

** Yandere-chan can also stage her murders as suicides by pushing girls off the roof and leaving their shoes and forged suicide notes above their bodies. The suicide notes all include a unique instigating cause for the suicide (e.g. sexual abuse, drug use), which Yandere-chan must obtain through eavesdropping earlier on.
** Furthermore, Yandere-chan can kidnap students and quite literally torture them until they are broken mind slaves who will commit murder-suicide on Yandere-chan's command.
* When you scare someone ''too'' much in ''VideoGame/HauntTheHouse'', they will run to the nearest window and jump out.
