This is regularly [[SuicideAsComedy played for laughs]], despite the risk of falling into "DudeNotFunny" territory. Also incidentally, deliberately pushing someone into suicide is treated the same as premeditated first-degree murder in many countries. Unfortunately, [[KidsAreCruel minors can be total monsters]] to each other, and [[NightmareFuel grave bullying at school]] or elsewhere often can have very sad consequences (the bully more often than not also gets off with a simple slap on the wrist, too).

SCP-405 is a contagious effect that causes the victim to gain the power of uncontrollable {{Telepathy}}. The constant mental "noise" and resulting sleep deprivation cause most victims to attempt suicide.

Tragically, this is an all too common occurrence in RealLife, but due to the nature of this trope, [[Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease please do not add real life examples]]. [[norealife]]

Whatever the reason; ([[MyGodWhatHaveIDone a guilty conscience]], [[CrapsackWorld the world is simply too much to bear]], or [[InternalizedCategorism self-hatred, whether reasonable or unreasonable]]) the character may be Driven To Suicide. This may be as little as pondering their existence or as much as holding a gun to one's head. Most times, the character will have second thoughts, or will be talked down by a friend, but in shows where AnyoneCanDie, the character may go through with it. In any case this is a powerful way to underscore the desperation of the character. In a {{backstory}}, being Driven To Suicide can [[IncrediblyLamePun illuminate]] the character's DarkAndTroubledPast. On desperate occasions, this can be a happy ending, but only if a majority of the viewers agree, and this is very rare.
