*** The theology is in fact quite clear. The mortal sin of suicide lies not in the act of self murder so much as the despair that motivates it. Isabel was not motivated by despair but by the need to save others. She gets a pass.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar brings this up without flat out saying it]]. [[spoiler: After the world is saved from time freezing to a stand-still which created a BadFuture thanks to the protagonists, Azuril goes through an nightmare that he can't wake up from which Cressila states is caused by the space-time distortions that are created by the heroes who dabbled with time to save the world. She says that they must "[[NeverSayDie disappear]]" to stop the distortions which would end up destroying the world; the partner character was beginning to wonder if they should do as she said, but the player character convinces them to think of another way out. It eventually turns out that "Cressila" was actually a disguised Darkrai who was lying to them about the distortions and planned on the heroes dying to get themselves out of the way of its plan to puts the world's inhabitants into an eternal nightmare.]]
