* In ''ComicBook/{{Finder}}'', Jaeger, the protagonist of several arcs, sometimes has to resort to self-harm if he doesn't get injured in some other way, as he has a very strong HealingFactor that, if not activated every so often, gives him an auto-immune disease. This is played for black humour in one story where he starts cutting himself in his girlfriend's bathroom, gets too enthusiastic, leaves the bathroom looking like a slaughterhouse, and jumps out of the window and runs away in embarassment when she gets home. She muses that it was the first time she had a boyfriend who ran away '''and''' killed himself.

* Some of the most stereotypical portrayals of self-harm come from bad fanfiction, perhaps most notably ''FanFic/MyImmortal'', where self-injury (specifically cutting) is used as an indication of "goffikness", with none of the emotional nuances characteristic of real SI attached.



* ''Very'' common in ''Manga/DeathNote'' fanworks centered around the M's. A popular {{Fanon}} explanation for the fact that Matt wears long sleeves and gauntlet gloves in LA is that it's to hide evidence of self-harm and/or [[DrugsAreBad needle-drug use]] brought on by a period of painful [[DontSplitUsUp separation]] from Mello following the latter's InUniverse decision to leave Wammy's. (It should be noted, however, that he has the gloves and sleeves while they're both at Wammy's.)
* In chapter 11 of ''[[{{Fanfic/Facade}} Façade]]'', [[spoiler: Chie]] was revealed to have cut herself.

* "Ana's Song" by Music/{{Silverchair}} is about anorexia.
* Several songs by punk-rock band Music/TheUsed are about self-injury. Their second album, ''In Love and Death'', is particularly preoccupied with it, perhaps due to CreatorBreakdown, as much of the album was written in response to the death of lead singer Bert [=McCracken=]'s fiancee.
