** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', [[spoiler: the Gray Prince, half-orc Grand Champion of the Arena, sends you on a quest to determine his heritage. When faced with the news that his father was a vampire and he is illegitimate, (more the first than the second, in fact he only seems to care about the first) he becomes a Death Seeker. If you challenge him to the title of Grand Champion, he will accept, then sit still and allow you to kill him, even offering verbal encouragement.]]

* One of the example villains in the old edition of ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' Supers was a disgraced sumo wrestler who couldn't commit seppuku due to his NighInvulnerability. Thus, he sought out other supers to goad them into killing him. His sympathetic backstory, and his history of tracking down and defeating violent supers, make him more of an AntiVillain. There's also a [[PointBuildSystem disadvantage]] called 'On The Edge', that basically allows you to play your character as a Death Seeker. It makes you passively suicidal. You won't off ''yourself'', but if you're, say, [[CurbStompBattle facing down an entire biker gang while armed with a toothbrush]]...

*** In the ''Bloodmoon'' expansion, there is a Nord who has spent 500 years searching for Sovngarde, an homage to the real life Valhalla of Viking lore. The player can give him a book detailing how Nords may reach Sovngarde: by dying honorably in combat. Delighted, the man asks the player to kill him, but only in real combat (and he's [[BadassGrandpa remarkably dangerous for a 500-year old man]]).

** Also prevalent in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''. Most notable is the Old Orc, an Orc who is too old to become chief or take a wife but is still strong enough to fight. He would rather die a glorious death than become too old to hold his own in battle. Nords in general also fit this, as they believe that Sovngarde (the FantasyCounterpartCulture of Valhalla) awaits all Nord warriors who die in battle, or at the hands of an enemy in general; being executed by a weapon counts, which appears to be why the preferred from of execution is beheading by axe. In the ''Dragonborn '' [=DLC=], the [[BonusBoss Ebony Warrior]] will visit the player character if he/she is at least level ''80'' (a hint that he's not going to be a pushover) and asks you to meet him at Last Vigil. He feels like he has seen and done it all and now he only wants to die fighting so he can go to Sovngarde. Sending him there is easier said than done, thanks to his enchanted ebony equipment, high stats, and his Unrelenting Force Shout.

* ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' has [[spoiler:Ryoma Hoshi, the Ultimate Tennis Pro. Since he became a death row inmate, he thinks his life is worth less than anyone else's, and after Monokuma announces that everyone will be executed if a murder isn't committed in 48 hours, he volunteers to be the first victim (and is disappointed when he isn't). He tries to find a reason to live, but in Chapter 2, he learns that nobody from the outside world misses him, [[DrivenToSuicide causing him to lose his will to live and therefore allow himself to be murdered by Kirumi.]]]]

* Animus from ''VideoGame/TheBlackHeart'' is a HumanoidAbomination that can't be killed, which he finds to be a curse and has driven him an insane CombatSadomasochist. In his own words, his own blood brings him pleasure, but the fact of existing makes him sick. In his ending [[spoiler: His father, Final, refuses to let him die because he has a prupose to fulfill, so instead he puts him under his control and gives him a fragment of the Black Heart's power. However, all it takes is a moment of self-awareness for Animus to use that power to finally destroy himself]].

* An in-game mechanic in ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' is that characters with certain afflictions will SelfHarm out of masochism or [[DespairEventHorizon to ensure to die faster]] while goading the monsters into attacking them. For a more straight example, the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Abomination]] and the [[WarriorPoet Leper]] are two of the most willing to face [[spoiler:the Heart of Darkness' OneHitKill]] if chosen for this reason.
