* In ''Literature/TheVampireChronicles'', the older the vampire, the harder they are to kill. The oldest and most powerful ones cannot die even if they [[SuicideBySunlight step outside during the day]]. There are some instances of vampires failing to commit suicide this way, including Lestat, Louis, Armand and Mael. Marius actually cites the inability to self-terminate as a reason a younger vampire may choose to not drink blood of an older vampire to strengthen themselves.

* In Creator/LarryNiven's novel ''[[Literature/{{Ringworld}} The Ringworld Engineers]]'', Teela Brown has become a Protector whose descendant-protecting instincts are paradoxically making her try to stop the main characters from saving the Ringworld. She is, however, just rational enough to provoke the main characters into killing her so they can get on with the job. It helps slightly that Louis is literally the only creature on Ringworld who is technically the same species as she is, so her protective instincts are ''slightly'' stronger towards him then they are towards the humanoid-but-not-quite-''human'' Ringworld natives. She doesn't feel any instinctive compunctions to keep Chmeee alive, though. Luckily he's a half-ton of obligate carnivore from a ProudWarriorRace, and therefore no slouch himself.

-->'''Chmeee:''' "She let her instincts fight for her. Not her mind. You were right, Louis, she fought to lose. Kdapt help me if she had fought to win."

* Referenced by name in ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'' by Shinji, who is really rather bitter about the whole Kaworu thing. [[spoiler: Though in Kaworu's defence, he really couldn't; [[DrivenToSuicide he tried]], but [[HealingFactor it didn't stick]].]]

* ShiningForce II's Lemon, who goes on a killing spree as the Red Baron, snaps out of his trance and now wishes to atone for his sins. However, since he is no longer human but now a immortal vampire, he finds that he can't kill himself. The first time he attempts suicide, he tries jumping from a cliff, with Astral commenting "That couldn't have felt good".

* One of your final missions in ''VideoGame/Doom2016'' is to destroy VEGA, the sentient ArtificialIntelligence and MasterComputer of the UAC, because its power is needed to send you to the heart of the Hell portal so you can shut it down forever. VEGA walks you through each step of the process, and even gives you a variant of the Trope Name at the start. [[spoiler:The Doom Slayer makes a backup of VEGA for his suit at the end of the mission, because it is the only major entity in the game that did not seek to either use him for self-serving purposes or try to kill him]].
