* Jodie, from the 1970s sitcom/soap opera parody ''{{Soap}}'', takes a bunch of pills, falls asleep and wakes up as the most emotionally healthy character in the series. Go figure. * Ex-Secret Service agent Paul Kellerman in ''PrisonBreak'' realizes that his life is meaningless and that the woman he has done so much for despises him. He puts on his parade uniform with all his awards and medals, properly cleans his service pistol, sits down on a chair, and prepares to pull the trigger. The scene cuts between this and his sister receiving a disturbing call and rushing to his place. She gets there and finds him slumped on the chair, the gun on the floor. He then stirs and looks at her, telling her in amazement that this is the first time in his entire career his gun has misfired. He then finds out that Sara Tancredi is on trial and, with renewed purpose, goes to testify, knowingly incriminating himself in the process. Later, his prison van is intercepted by masked people with guns. He faces them with dignity and prepares to die. [[spoiler:He gets better]].

* [[ProjectRunway Tim Gunn]] recounts in his autobiography how after he attempted suicide by taking every pill he could find in his parents' house after getting sent to yet another boarding school and feeling conflicted over his (at the time undiscovered) homosexuality that he was glad to have failed at it once he'd spent several years in a psychiatric hospital with a doctor who helped him turn his life around.

* In {{Planetes}}, a couple with a young child in episode 5 were planning to commit suicide due to some extreme financial burdens. But then a thief aboard the spaceship steals the medicine, and later takes the young girl hostage. They try to dissuade the thief from killing her, and begin to realize that they themselves were about to decide her future in a bad way themselves. After the girl is saved, she tells her parents about her hopes and dreams of going into space and piloting a spaceship, and they seem to reconsider killing themselves, and instead promise the little girl that they'll work hard for her as well.

* Crossing over with RealLife, the disillusioned [[spoiler:Marjane]] in ''{{Persepolis}}'' deliberately overdoses on anti-depressants. The result is that she passes out for three days then has several hours of hallucinations. When she meets with her therapist, he's at a loss to how she survived, saying the amount she took should have been enough to kill an elephant. * Happens in ComicBook/TheWalkingDead, seeing as it's a {{Cliffhanger}} to whom it happens and when and that he/she/it lives, so no other spoilers shall be needed.
