* A parody in a classic Emo Philips joke: he talks a guy off a ledge by saying how much they have in common, going to the same church, and having the same beliefs, until they diverge on such a miniscule religious belief... at which point Emo pushes him off the ledge yelling "Die, Heretic!"
** [[spoiler: Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of '''1896''']] vs [[spoiler: Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of '''1912''']], AIR.

** In a "TreehouseOfHorror" "WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror" episode, he does manage to successfully do it, but since Homer killed the Grim Reaper, no one can die.



** In a segment of "TreehouseOfHorror XIV" (parodying ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "A Kind of a Stopwatch"), Bart uses a watch [[TimeStandsStill that stops and restarts time]] to play pranks, including making each one of Homer's doughnuts seemingly vanish just as he's about to take the first bite. Homer bursts into tears and tries to stab himself in the chest, only to find the knife replaced with a peeled banana mushed against his suddenly naked body.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Cartman Sucks," camper Bradley is ready to throw himself off a bridge when Butters shows up. Rather than begging him not to jump, Butters confronts the councillors, telling them he's sick of being told he's confused, because it's only making him feel more confused, that he thinks they might be confused too, and that if God made him bi-curious, then it must be okay to be bi-curious. These confident words encourage Bradley to come down.

Of those eight, [[http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/06/14/world/main6580981.shtml this guy]] deserves special mention. He lives in Australia's hottest suicide spot, and he has intimate experience with people who want to end it all. And what does he do when they try to jump? He offers them a cup of tea and a smile.

* The ''SinCity'' story ''Hell and Back'' kicks off with hero Wallace coming across a woman named Esther about to commit suicide and saving her just in time. Not that he stops her attempt, she ''does'' go off the cliff, but he manages to pull her out of the water and revive her. When Esther is kidnapped, Wallace goes through hell and high water to get her back. In what was possibly the greatest heartrending moment in a surprisingly deep and touching series ("Sin" City or no, these stories each have an Aesop to put any Edutainment show to shame), when he asks her why she jumped, she replies that [[spoiler: "I was lonely."]]

* In a very early GoldenAge ''{{Superman}}'' comic, Superman saved the life of a man who jumped off a bridge. He turned out to be a former champion boxer whose career had fallen apart when his crooked agent drugged him so that he would lose a title bout. Superman then spent the rest of the issue helping the man win back his title (And getting Clark Kent a promotion for his articles predicting the boxer's comeback).

** Another one occurs later, in the CP9 saga. Fearing her friends would eventually betray her, as did all of the people who took her in as a child, Robin sacrificed herself by surrendering to the CP9. She [[DeathSeeker preferred to die right there and then]] rather than live to eventually be betrayed and thrown away, and made clear that [[UnwantedRescue she didn't want to be rescued]]. Fortunately, the PowerOfFriendship makes her realize that [[TrueCompanions her crewmates]] would ''never'' betray her, and were ready to go to hell and back to save her. This gives her the will to live again, making this a HappilyFailedSuicide.

* In ''OnePiece'', Robin resigned herself to her fate as the Royal Tomb crumbles around her. However Luffy unexpectedly rescues both King Cobra and Robin. When she protests that she wants to die, Luffy tells her he's going to rescue her anyways and if she still feels that way after, then she can do it ''after'' he rescues her. Luffy's action gave Robin the will to live and to perform a HeelFaceTurn as she joins the Straw Hats.

* ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'': Dazai loves suicide, and so his gimmick was to do this (normally getting interrupted by Kunikida or Atsushi) but later he changed his mind - now he wants a lovers' suicide with a beautiful woman, except of course he lacks a woman who's willing to go through with it.

* In the 1993 Norwegian film ''The Last Lieutenant'' (a.k.a. ''Second Lieutenant''), the Nazis have threatened to bomb the town unless the local military surrenders. Their commanding officer agrees to do so, then locks himself in a toilet booth with the intention of shooting himself. Suddenly the protagonist enters the room, so the embarrassed officer quickly puts away his pistol and flushes the toilet as if he'd been using the booth for its normal purpose.
