* Erica in the backstory for ''VideoGame/{{Malicious}}'', she was weak and frail, the girl was in the middle of a grand scale war started by her own father King Eldrake, the tyrant corrupted his own kingdom and had his wife, Queen Ashlelei, imprisioned. When Erica and her brother freed their mother to start a revolution, Eldrake started an alliance with barabarians, in the battlefield Erica could not fight so she choose to hurt her father by killing herself in front of him, to no avail as King Eldrake felt not remorse at the sight of his daughter taking her own life before him.

* Intentionally done to the local priest, Minase, in VisualNovel/{{Suika}}. And he deserves it too. [[spoiler:First, he strangled his insane wife to death, which... might be overlookable since she was ''nuts.''

He puts his other daughter Sayo, unconscious and badly bleeding after Itsuki herself threw her down a flight of stairs, in the hospital and doesn't even recognize which of the twins she is.]] When Akira finds all this out, he confronts him and recommends suicide.

* In ''ObsCure 2'', one of the playable characters commits suicide after his girlfriend, and most of his friends have been killed in the 'incidient' at the school. (By incident we mean the surivial horror plot.) The sequel is DarkerAndEdgier than the orginal, which is no small feat seeing as in the first game everyone dies in horible experiments, or a the hands of the horrible experiments, except for the playable characters.

*** Rivet City also has Mei Wong, an escaped slave. She's terrified of a man named Sister who's a former slaver and thinks he's coming after her. You can either give her money to buy a gun for protection (good Karma), or tell Sister (who doesn't really care) she's a slave and let Mei know you told him, causing her to overreact and kill herself (bad Karma).



*** [[spoiler: Arcade Gannon]] [[{{Seppuku}} disembowels himself]] in his ending if you [[spoiler: turn him into a slave for Caesar.]]

*** In ''VideoGame/Persona2: Innocent Sin'', the heroes meet a ghost of a teacher who threw himself into the gears of the school's clock tower. Officially it was ruled a suicide, as he had just gone through a very acrimonious divorce and was showing signs of depression. His ghost says he was trying to prevent the end of the world, having interpreted an obscure prophecy as alluding to the clock signaling the beginning of the end, and he thought that if he killed himself in the tower the school would turn it off permanently. [[spoiler:It was a little of both and then some, because he was haunted by the Big Bad, had his life ruined, and finally at the end was given a little "push."]]

* In both the [[spoiler:Law and Chaos]] paths of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', you will fight [[spoiler: Isabeau]]. In both cases, you manage to beat them. Saddened both of your paths diverge so wildly, [[FondMemoriesThatCouldHaveBeen and lamenting they could not remain together]], they slit their throat. [[spoiler: In the White/Emptiness/Bad Ending, you are convinced by the White nothing will ever change and that everyone will be better off dead, combining this with PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery.]]

* A more sinister instance occurs in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}''. While Kamoshida had been a serious asshole who exploited those around him and struck down those who resisted him, he blackmails Ann into paying a visit to him by putting her friend Shiho's spot on the volleyball team at risk. When Ann turns it down... well, it's suggested that Shiho was assaulted both physically and [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil sexually]], because she is clearly seen taking a dive off the roof of Shujin Academy; she survives, but she's out of commission for a good long time.

* A major plot point in ''VideoGame/VirtuesLastReward'' is a disease that causes infected individuals to try and kill themselves. [[MultipleEndings In most timelines]] [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior Quark]] is the first to attempt to kill himself, however it's Alice that's the first to go. The player character also does this in Clover's ending, though whether or not it was a result of the virus is debatable.

*** You can sometimes come across skeletal remains with bloodstains caked into the walls and guns lying next to them. Presumably when the nuclear holocaust happened, some people decided to die on their own terms.

** Happens in ''Videogame/Bioshock1'' and ''Videogame/Bioshock2'' also. [[spoiler: Andrew Ryan mind controls the player into killing him]] but a quick look at audio diaries, corpse placement, and a few other things will show that quite a few people in Rapture elected that way out. One of the easiest examples to find is in the apartments. Some girls, their parents, and a jar of poison while the TV shows "please stand by".
