* After the San Francisco Earthquake in 1906, a lot of wooden frame buildings had collapsed with people inside, and many [[KillItWithFire caught fire]] due to either broken gas mains, upturned stoves or furnaces, or some combination of the two. Many of the people trapped were pinned under debris, but the admittedly few first responders often didn't have the strength to drag them out before said fire could kill them. There are stories of people begging to be shot if they couldn't be freed. There is a story of at least one person who complied before the victim could burn to death, who then went immediately to the nearest police he could find to turn himself in. After listening to his story, the police told him he had done the right thing and let him go.

* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' includes a surprisingly lighthearted variation: In one chapter, a [[HeadlessHorseman Dullahan]] becomes friends with a terminally ill girl at a hospital and doesn't know how to cope with her impending death. Her solution? [[spoiler: Kill her... and re-animate her as a zombie, as in this setting [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies are fully sentient and are basically just humans with a few biological quirks]].]]

* This is the reason behind the voluntary euthanasia laws in Albania, Belgium, Estonia, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, three US states, and the Canadian province of Quebec beginning in 2015 (assisted suicide is set to become legal across the rest of Canada from June 2016). [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Obviously]], as stated above this remains very controversial.

* Early on in ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', you have to help New Tristram's blacksmith, Haedrig Eamon, kill his wife Mira and everyone else who's been bitten by the [[ZombieApocalypse zombies]] attacking the town. The page quote is the Demon Hunter's response to Haedrig's question about how he could kill his own wife. Later on in the game, [[spoiler:when Leah is possessed by Diablo himself following Adria's betrayal, the final battle is essentially this for Leah as well as a final reckoning for the Prime Evil]].

to:

* *Every boss battle against [[BigBad Diablo]] is this because in order to take physical form, Diablo needs [[DemonicPossession a host]]. And in order to defeat Diablo and free the host, the host must be put down. In ''VideoGame/DiabloI'', the titular demon possesses the [[AdultFear younger brother]] of the warrior character, forcing him to kill his own brother in order to defeat Diablo.
**In ''VideoGame/DiabloII'', [[TheHero Prince Aiden]], the warrior character from the previous game becomes Diablo's new host, forcing the player to kill the former main character.
