* Literature/TheCulture: In ''Literature/TheHydrogenSonata'' Ngaroe QiRia is a deliberate if narrow aversion. He's the oldest biological citizen in the Culture and has seen pretty everything the galaxy has to offer in 10,000 years and still keeps living, albeit in a rather jaded, eccentric way. In the rest of the Culture, living forever is completely possible but considered rather tacky, so most hyper-elderly citizens tend to euthanize themselves when they've seen it all. One of these people is shown in ''Literature/LookToWindward'' -- in a subversion he considers delaying his suicide to see the concert being organised by the protagonist, but says that there's always one more thing to see, so it would just be putting things off.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Casanova}}''. Casanova runs into his old flame Billino in Naples, where she's staying with friends despite Mount Vesuvius ominously belching smoke and fire nearby. Billino says that she's achieved everything she ever wanted in life, and Casanova belatedly realises that they're all waiting for the volcano to erupt and end their ennui.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/OnlyLoversLeftAlive'', this is Adam's attitude. He's very jaded by the progression of human society. This is directly opposed to his wife's [[WorthLivingFor point of view.]]

* Sadly, too many people in retirement homes follow this way of thinking. As a culture (in the United States at least), we feel that once you're in a home, it's over. Time to just wait for death. [[YourMindMakesItReal And this attitude causes quick degradation of physical and mental abilities and become a self fulfilling prophecy.]] A lot of Developmental Psych textbooks and experts say that retirement homes need to avert this trope with their residents.

* Done by Light Yagami in an AlternateEnding of the manga version of ''Manga/DeathNote''. He's now in his 50's or 60's and has been ruling as Kira for many years...and decides he's bored. So he asks Ryuk to write his name in the book. [[spoiler: In the afterlife, he gets killed many times over, for every name he wrote in the notebook. Light, being who he is, chooses not to take that sitting down, and goes to bargain with the Shinigami King. This may or may not tie into the popular fan theory that Light became a Shinigami after he died.]]

* The reason the BonusBoss of ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', [[spoiler:the [[BlackKnight Ebony Warrior]]]], seeks out the [[PlayerCharacter Dovahkiin]] [[DeathSeeker for a fight to the death]]. And given the power needed to attract his attention, [[{{Badass}} let]] [[HealingFactor alone]] [[MagicKnight defeat]] [[MakeMeWannaShout him]], at this point this could be true for the Dovahkiin as well.
