* [[ThePhilosopher Gothos]] in ''Literature/TheKharkanasTrilogy'' claims that the project he's currently writing is a suicide note. He's been at it for [[WeAreAsMayflies several centuries now]], and does not expect to be done any time soon. Other characters are quick to question the point behind writing a suicide not that will never actually ''end''; Gothos cares not.

* Quite possibly the TropeNamer (although not the first instance by at least 28 years): the last song on the second side of Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/TheWall'' is "Goodbye Cruel World", which - while not a suicide note - is a final message from the main character to the world before cutting all his emotional ties and going behind the Wall.

* At the end of Season One of ''{{Soap}}'' Chester tries to write a suicide note when he decides to commit suicide (PlayedForLaughs mind) because [[spoiler:Jessica is about to be arrested for Peter's murder and he's about to lose pretty much everything (money and home, etc.)]] but he couldn't figure out the correct spelling of "suicide" and guessed that everybody would get the picture when they found him dead over a piece of kitchen roll with writing on it (because he couldn't find any paper).
