* TruthInTelevision example: The phenomenon of "[[SuicideByCop police-assisted suicide]]," in which people who can't bring themselves to end their own lives commit a violent crime, such as taking a hostage, in order to provoke the police into shooting them. Only officially considered "suicide" if the person left a note to that effect.

* The 1990 comedy ''Film/ShortTime'' stars Dabney Coleman as a police officer who erroneously finds out he has a terminal illness. The problem is, his wife ([[HeyItsThatGuy Marge]] in Film/MomAndDadSaveTheWorld) only gets his pension pre-retirement if he is killed in the line of duty. Since suicide is also out of the question, he starts taking massive risks on the job in an effort to get a perp to kill him.

* In ''Manga/GashBell'' the demon-bookkeeper pairs cannot burn their own books; therefore there were many cases of demons(or their bookkeepers) asking others to burn their book for them. It could be either because any more damage to the demon could actually kill the demon(their bookkeepers would rather have the demons sent back to the demon world than having them die) or because they do not feel like participating in the battle anymore. Examples include Koruru, Rein, Wonlei, Leira, Bari, and Umagon.

* In ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' the girls FairyCompanion's protect them from lethal injuries, whether it be suicide or battle damage. [[spoiler:This is not a good thing as whenever they fight their Mankai get leveled up. Eventually they automatically use the DangerousForbiddenTechnique which causes them health consequences, anything from losing the ability to use your legs to not being able to taste anything. After several uses they end up ''severely'' crippled and it's basically a FateWorseThanDeath]].

* Creator/{{Bioware}} likes this trope. In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', the main character will encounter a Dalish elf who has turned into a werewolf. Her transformation has left her in excrutiating pain and she will beg the character to end her suffering. If you do, she will thank you. If you don't, she will attack and force you to kill her.

* In ''VideoGamePlanescapeTorment'' you come across a woman who is dying of a painful illness but whose race has a taboo against suicide, and who requests that Dak'kon (a priest -- sort of -- of that same race) end her suffering. You can use this as an opportunity to [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential psychologically torture him]].

* Assisted suicide is still officially treated as homicide in Britain, but the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has issued a statement to the effect that if they are satisfied that the perpetrator acted with the informed consent of the deceased, they will not seek to press charges.
