* 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]]"...]]

* In ''The Lady of Shalott'' by Creator/AlfredLordTennyson, the eponymous Lady is kept in isolation by a magical curse which will kill her if she looks upon the world through any means other than her magic mirror. When she sees the image of her love interest, she is driven to go and find him, knowing that it will mean her death.



* FallOutBoy's song "Thriller" (no, not a cover of the Music/MichaelJackson song) contains the lines "The only thing I haven't done yet is die/and it's me and my plus-one at the afterlife."

* If successful at the button input at the end of [[WhoWantsToLiveForever Zasalamel's]] story in SoulCalibur 3, he sits down and writes book after book (eventually enough to fill a city library), all based on his past lives. With the last book done and his quill dry, he just sits back and waits for his long-welcomed end.

* ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra'' combines this with AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence with [[spoiler:Iroh]], who didn't so much die as he did decide he'd done everything he had to do in the real world and retire to the Spirit World.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]
