* The WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes short "Cheese Chasers" from 1951 features Hubie and Bertie unable to think of anything else to do in life after downing a mother-load of cheese, so they decide to let themselves be eaten by a cat, leaving the trope before doing so (with a double-meaning PS attached: "We've lived a full life"). But the eagerness to get eaten scares the cat to the point that he can't eat mice anymore, and unable to perform his main reason for existing as a cat, ''he'' leaves the trope (with a PS that went, literally, "No PS").

* Played for BlackComedy in one WebAnimation/ASDFMovie installment: a man puts a gun to his head and sadly says "Goodbye world." Cut to a sentient planet Earth happily asking where the man is going only to get cut off by a gunshot as it exclaims "Oh no! That's not what I thought he meant by that at all!"

* While suicidal undertones are common of Music/TendonLevey's work, albums released towards the end of 2009 (primarily ''I Recant, The Rifles in Mind Recoil'' and ''Bot of Big God, Bomb of His Whirs'') are far more blatant in that they were actually intended to function as his suicide note(s).

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.
