** More than one case in the series begins with someone commiting suicide, and you just ''know'' that said death was caused when someone ruined that person's life. And obviously, whoever is to blame will become the AssholeVictim.

** More than one case in the series begins with someone commiting suicide, and you the reader/watcher just ''know'' ''knows'' that said death was caused when someone ruined that person's life. And obviously, whoever is to blame will become the AssholeVictim. A good example is the death of [[spoiler: Sakurako]] in a {{filler}} episode: she climbs to a tower from her college, stares sadly at the skies, closes her eyes [[GoryDiscretionShot and throws herself off]]...

* The plot to ''Film/IRobot'' is kicked off by the apparent suicide of Docotor Lanning, the world's foremost expert on robotics, which the main character Detective Spooner, a friend of Lanning, believes was a murder committed by a robot. [[spoiler: It turns out he was half-right. Lanning's robotic "son" Sonny did kill him, but only because the doctor asked him to do it in the hopes that Spooner would investigate and discover the plans of the BigBad, making it an Assisted Suicide, and this example an InvokedTrope]].
