The suicide note. The final explanation for why one is [[Theatre/Hamlet shuffling off this mortal coil]], quitting the earthly sphere, leaping off to join the choir invisible. The composition of such a note - rife with anguish, despair, and turmoil - can take a while; this may, happily, lead to an InterruptedSuicide JustInTime. Maybe, instead of writing things down, the victim could leave behind a VideoWill. It could even be part of the elaborate facade involved in FakingTheDead or covering up [[TheCoronerDothProtestTooMuch a murder]]. In a murder mystery, it's often found to be forged in some way by our local AmateurSleuth. The lack of a suicide note will immediately and in all cases prompt law enforcement to suspect that the death is not a suicide even if suicide appears obvious; in this case, the real cause of death will usually be homicide, accident, or natural causes.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator''. A girl can be found dead from falling from a great height, and [[BarefootSuicide her shoes]] and a suicide note are found on the roof. Seems straightforward, no? Except the main character, Yandere-chan, is a, well, {{Yandere}}, and, if her language skills are high enough, can push a rival off the roof and ''forge'' a suicide note to throw suspicion off her.

* Subverted in ''Manga/Classi9'': Beethoven started regularly writing suicide notes because of his SenseLossSadness, but people who found out about his habit know he is much stronger than he looks and won't actually commit suicide. Beethoven himself says he sees the notes as diary entries more than anything else, and the cast uses the length of the notes as a way to measure how upset he is.
