It's also implied during an argument with her subconscious that she had attempted to overdose on pills in the past.]]

* Dani from ''Webcomic/BetweenTheLines'' was sent to a psychiatric hospital after cutting her wrists and nearly dying. Being a bullied, closeted trans girl with AbusiveParents drove her off the edge.

* № 4 from ''Webcomic/{{Hellp}}'' died by suicide as a result of having a crappy life, but since the story takes place in Hell and everyone is DeadToBeginWith, we only find out about it as a part of his {{Backstory}}.

* Lexx from ''AlienDice'' tried to kill himself several times but survived because of tiny machines injected into his circulation. He doesn't dare to try the most radical methods for fear of the pain if the machines would still repair his body. Only after several attempts to die failed did he gather the determination to try and win.

* ''QuestionableContent'' has Faye, a girl with obvious issues. It is later revealed that the reason she is so severely messed up is that [[spoiler:her father, who she saw as her best friend and in whom she confided everything, committed suicide for reasons unknown by blowing his brains out with a gun, ''in front of her''. He went outside in the early morning without realizing that she had gotten out of bed and followed him outside. Then he blew his brains out before she could call out to him. Yikes.]]

* Scotty kills himself in ''SomethingPositive''.
* ''Breakfast of the Gods'': [[spoiler:Trix]] tries to hang himself after [[spoiler:betraying Cap'n Crunch into a fatal ambush]]. He doesn't succeed, because the tree cuts him off and says [[spoiler:[[BlackComedy "Silly rabbit."]]]]
* Artie Crowley of ''{{Concession}}'' was seen holding a gun to his head after realising [[spoiler:he had had sex with a prepubescent boy while in a trance and unable to realise what he was doing]], but he didn't go through with it.
* This is the entire basis for every storyline in ''SuicideForHire'', which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.

* After untolds amounts of emotional suffering due to his robotic form, the [[TheWoobie title character]] of ''Webcomic/WarbotInAccounting'' finally decides to kill himself by jumping off his office building while leaving behind a note scribbled "No Love". It doesn't work due to him being NighInvulnerable and he ends up taking crap from his co-workers for skipping work.

* Neilli of ''{{Juathuur}}'' is driven to suicide [[spoiler: by Meidar, who decides that a girl that wants to be a healer would make a perfect torturer. Possibly a SecretTestOfCharacter directed at Neilli's boyfriend Thomil.]]

* Conor from ''FreakAngels'' shoots himself in the head, not out of a true desire to die, but out of a wish to upgrade his mental abilities. His action fits this trope because he really didn't know whether he'd survive, and his conversation with Arkady and relationship with the other Freak Angels suggest that he didn't much care.
* At the end of ''AndersLovesMaria'', [[spoiler: Tina]] commits suicide after [[spoiler: failing to win Anders back.]]
* ''WapsiSquare'' BackStory: Jin tried to derail the spell with this. [[SenselessSacrifice It didn't work]]

* A RunningGag across ''MSPaintAdventures'' as a whole is people being driven to suicide near a stump in an empty field, later named the Land of Stumps and Dismay in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. First it was the protagonist of ''Webcomic/{{Jailbreak}}'', then later an ''audience member'' of ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' and ''Homestuck'' gives it some serious consideration in response to events in the comics themselves.
** However, a few of the characters have attempted suicide: the Ace Dick who played the Game of Life with Death in ProblemSleuth, and the Handmaid in {{Homestuck}}. Both cases proved temporary, although the Handmaid eventually succeeded in SuicideByCop.

** [[spoiler:This makes sense, however, when one consider that Larima's little sister Taffe is deaf, and [[DisabilitySuperpower uses her power of air to hear]], which means Taffe is burning herself out in a much quicker pace - and ''will'' die before Larima does. Throw in the fact that [[DeathByOriginStory their parents are dead]], and we may have the reason to Larima's attitude - [[TearJerker she doesn't want to live without her little sister. She doesn't want to be alone. She's trying to pace herself with Taffe]].]]
