* Tommy Wiseau's ''Film/TheRoom'' had main character Johnny go out this way after he found out about his fiancee's affair. Of course, it is only ''after'' his wimpy rage against his home that he goes, "[[Podcast/RiffTrax Oh hai, gun barrel!]]"

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': After Karen Page thwarts an attempt on her life in her jail cell (at the cost of [[EyeScream the attacker's right eye]]), Wilson Fisk has the attacker himself assassinated and, as Karen learns from Ben Urich a few episodes later, has the scene staged to look like this.

* An ImpliedTrope for a character's mindset in Literature/TimeEnoughForLove: Lazarus Long mentions, repeatedly, that a marriage between a '[[TimeAbyss Howard]]' and '[[WeAreAsMayflies ephemeral]]' is a bad idea. Then he tells a story about the one time he broke this rule, on a world with a "Wild West" society... and he fell in love with her. When she dies of old age... [[TearJerker what was he thinking before he calls his sons into the room]]?

* In the original [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/Postal ''Postal'']], you can do this by pressing the "suicide" button, which causes the Postal Dude to shoot himself in the head with the Machine Gun. While in ''Redux'', he uses the Sub Machinegun to kill himself unlike the original game.
** As [[CopyProtection Copy Protection]] in the first game, the Postal Dude will repeatedly kill himself when a level starts. Unless if the "suicide" feature is removed by [[GameMod modding the game]].

* In ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar 2'', you get Tai Kaliso as an early squadmate, who is shown to be a MadeOfIron {{Badass}} that can shrug off being inside a vehicle as it explodes like it's no big deal. Later, he stays behind to hold off some Locust while Marcus and Dom escape. Surely he'll be fine, right? [[spoiler:Later still, you clear out a Locust barge and discover that he's being held prisoner on it, so Marcus lets him out, hands him a gun, and tells him to get back to ass-kicking. Turns out that after being extensively tortured by the Locust, he's not really in the mood for ass-kicking. Or living. ''*[[PlayerPunch BANG]]*''.]]

** Arseface got his distinctive looks by trying to kill himself by putting a shotgun under his chin; he was trying to emulate Kurt Cobain's suicide. His father's first words to him in the hospital? [[NoSympathy "Shoulda put it in your mouth, you dumb little fuck."]]
*** This was likely a tribute to the [[http://ultimateclassicrock.com/judas-priest-suicide/ infamous Judas Priest incident]] that launched the witchhunt over SubliminalSeduction.
** Jesse at one point tells a gun-toting pedophile midget thug to "eat his gun" using his CompellingVoice... and the guy starts chewing on the gunmetal. By the time the cops show up, he was bleeding heavily from his mouth...

** The film shows loads of Nazis shooting themselves in the mouth rather than surrender. This is TruthInTelevision many of the Nazi leadership chose to go out this way when it became obvious they were doomed to either capture by the Allies or bloody revenge by the Russians.

* Martin Riggs in ''Film/LethalWeapon'' contemplates this form of suicide early on in the movie, but can't follow through. He even has a special hollow-point bullet to make sure his brain is sufficiently damaged. But when he's partnered up with Roger Murtaugh, the latter is so exasperated with Riggs' DeathSeeker attitude (which he believes is just a bluff) that he offers him his own revolver to do himself in --and Riggs promptly presses the barrel to the underside of his throat. Then he moves it to his mouth, because the other position still allowed for error, and very ''nearly'' fires until Murtaugh realizes he's not bluffing.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZbsXFoCHks E3 announcement trailer]] for ''VideoGame/ZombiU'' has a nameless British office worker preparing to do this (around the 1:10 mark) when it becomes quite clear that no amount of pills or injections will stem the tide of his infection. After a glass of liquor and a sad look at a photo of his wife and child, we see that in spite of his expression, he has already pulled the trigger because of the incoming horde of zombies mere feet from where he sits. The next tableau on the bridge shows that it ''really'' didn't work--he became a zombie himself.
