* ''Series/DarkMatter'': Milo kills himself rather than be used again by the Seers to further their aims.



* {{UsefulNotes/Christianity}} generally treats suicide as a sin. However, some have argued that Jesus' death is also a suicide (in the same manner as the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' [[MessianicArchetype example above]]). Being God, Jesus obviously could have saved himself from crucifixion, yet this was also necessary in Christian belief for humans' salvation. A form of heroic {{suicide by cop}}, arguably. Actually it's not the act of killing oneself that is the sin but the despair that leads to it. Despair is a sin against the Holy Ghost because it denies the goodness of God. Logically then somebody who dies not in despair but to save another, preserve the time line, protect the Earth, etc. has not sinned. However, many (for instance Catholicism) recognize that illnesses such as clinical depression can cause a despair that is not under someone's control and thus lessens or perhaps expunges any moral responsibility for suicide.

In a more minor Biblical example, Samson pulled down the temple on top of the Philistines (also a {{suicide attack}}), killing himself in the process. This is treated as nothing but heroic.
