* In ''WebComic/{{VGCats}}'', the evil storekeeper Johnny Evil Guy does this after Ternaldo had spent several hours harassing the storekeeper him and his customers about his obsession on his card game. It was probably the lame pun that tips anime. What drives him over the edge.edge is an IncrediblyLamePun about "flipping" out over the ''YuGiOh'' movie.

** Parodied in one episode where the guys are playing laser tag, and Peter is weirdly good at it. When asked how he does it, he answers that it's not about what he does but how he forgives himself for doing it, then puts the laser gun in his mouth and fires, though obviously all it does it light up the inside of his mouth.

There are lots of ways to [[ChoosingDeath do yourself in]]: jump off a bridge, hanging, stick your head in the oven. One popular method in the USA and Hollywood is to wrap your lips around the barrel of your favorite firearm, and pull the trigger.[[note]]This being part of the reason why they have fewer suicidal and depressed people than all other developed countries - their average suicide attempt is about 50% lethal, versus less than 10% for the rest of the developed world (deliberate drug overdose having an average lethality of 2-3%, versus bullet to the brain at 90%+). This is because ''half'' their suicide attempts are with firearms, this rate also mirroring their rate of firearms-ownership (about half, versus 15% for Australia and less for countries like Poland where they don't have [[DeathWorld cane toads, rabbits, crows, dingos, foxes, and crocs to deal with]]). Funnily enough, despite the impression given by all the gory stories about 'drive-by-shootings' and 'school shootings' it's actually suicide and not murder that makes up the majority of their 15,000 annual firearms-deaths.[[/note]] One obvious reason for this: [[NoRangeLikePointBlankRange not a lot of room for error]]. Of course, some people still screw it up.

* 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.
