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]]

This is regularly [[SuicideAsComedy played for laughs]], despite being DudeNotFunny. 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).

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.
