It's not quite clear whether the mind control is instructing them to do so or whether they just can't live with themselves after being forced to fight on the same side as the man they've been told is TheAntichrist.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'', Boomer, the second-to-last boss to fight [[spoiler:before entering [[VeryDefiniteFinalDungeon The Gate to Smithy's world]]]], ends the fight before Mario and co. attempt to finish him off, saying [[HonorBeforeReason he'd rather kill himself than lose to them.]] Mario tries to talk him out of it, but Boomer refuses to take his sympathy. With one swing, Boomer hits Chandeli-Ho[[note]]The Shy-Guy holding up the chandelier he's standing on[[/note]], who releases the chandelier and sends him plummeting to his doom...[[SubvertedTrope or so we'd think,]] if that same Chandeli-Ho didn't say [[BungledSuicide he wouldn't be]] [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou killed by the impact,]] or even ''[[NoSell harmed for that matter]]'' right afterwards.

* 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.]]
