* In the last issue of ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Nico is given a choice of either signing up with Hunter Stein or taking the team to go out and look for Chase, who abandoned them. She chooses the latter, at which point Klara begs her to reconsider, pointing out that they have no money, no home, no allies, and no assurance that they'll ever find Chase (or that he'll agree to rejoin them if they do.)

* ''Theatre/TheMerchantOfVenice'' opens with a scene which may be intended as a parody of this trope, in which Antonio speaks repeatedly about his own sadness and frustration without any obvious cause, much to the bemusement of his friends.
-->In sooth, I know not why I am so sad:\\
It wearies me; you say it wearies you;\\
But how I caught it, found it, or came by it,\\
What stuff 'tis made of, whereof it is born,\\
I am to learn;\\
And such a want-wit sadness makes of me,\\
That I have much ado to know myself.

One of the best ways to show that a character has crossed the DespairEventHorizon is to give him/her the occasion to perform a DespairSpeech to show that his/her hopes are lost and that there's nothing else left to do. Expect CreepyMonotone if the character is portrayed as scary. ManlyTears are occasionally involved.

A DespairSpeech would be done by a character to show that they have crossed the DespairEventHorizon. The character is winding up his/her own lack of chances, desperation and, sometimes, remorse for something he/she could have done or said before. If said character is a criminal, his/her confession can become a DespairSpeech. Be careful when writing this: done too much or badly, and it becomes {{Wangst}}.
