* 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.

** In ''Literature/MostlyHarmless'' and ''Literature/AndAnotherThing,'' we have Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged. In an accident that has never been successfully repeated, he made himself immortal. In the former volume, he is using his immortality along with time travel to insult every single being in the galaxy. To their faces. One at a time. In alphabetical order. In the latter, he's given up on that and spends the entire book trying to find a way to die. [[spoiler:He eventually finds a reason to live when he falls in love with Trillian, but he still goes through with it. Fortunately, the chosen method doesn't kill him immediately but restores his mortality so he can grow old with her.]]

* Subverted in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', when JD listens to an old patient saying she's lived a long life, he believes it's code for being ready to die. Dr. Cox soon sets him straight.

* Subverted in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', when JD listens to an old patient saying she's lived a long life, he believes it's code for being ready to die. Dr. Cox soon sets him straight. Played straight in an earlier episode, where JD is forced to accept an old woman's desire to refuse the treatment and die, claiming to have lived a full life and seen it all. His attempt to show her that she hasn't only reveals that she has done all the things he comes up with for her.

* [[http://www.exitmundi.nl/suicide.htm This site]] suggests the possibility that humanity could all one day evolve into a super intelligent [[{{Instrumentality}} singularity]], learn everything there is to learn, get bored and decide to end their own existence.

* This is [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Maiza's]] reasoning for approaching Firo and [[ICannotSelfTerminate asking the kid to kill him]] (more specifically, he's both SeenItAll and finally received closure over his dead younger brother) at the end of the first arc of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}''. Firo's response is to nod, smile...and then give a number of entirely bullshit reasons for why he [[TwoThousandOne can't do that, Dave]], before admitting that he really just doesn't want to lose his mentor.

* DCComics: this was the origin story of the first Mr. Terrific, who was seriously considering suicide because he was just too damn good at everything to find anything interesting anymore. Then he discovered crime-fighting. Problem solved.

* At the end of ''SupermanRedSon'' [[spoiler:it's the far future, humanity has become quasi-immortal and the Earth is about to be swallowed by the Sun which has grown into a red giant. Lex Luthor's distant descendant Jor-El tried to come up with a plan to stop it but was ignored, theorizing that the trope is applying to the species as a whole. [[StableTimeLoop He then decides to send his son Kal-El to the past]] so that humanity doesn't become "[[WeHaveBecomeComplacent this cold complacent lot]]"...]]
