* In 1994, OJ Simpson famously led Los Angeles police in a low-speed chase while fleeing arrest for the murders of Nicole Brown-Simpson and Ron Goldman in a white Bronco driven by his friend, Al Cowlings. Allegedly, Simpson was in the backseat of the Bronco holding a gun to his own head, and had threatened to kill himself if the police got too close. The chase eventually ended at Simpson's house, where he finally surrendered to police.

* ''Film/BlazingSaddles''. See the above picture. "Hold it! The next man makes a move, the nigger gets it!" What makes this especially funny and awesome is that when Bart takes himself hostage, the townspeople were about to ''lynch'' him. Moments later, they are suddenly saying things like "Won't someone help that poor man?".

* In ''Love Happy'', the MarxBrothers' final film, Harpo is being tortured for information, but he's too dumb to torture. He is getting hungry though. So when he breaks out he points a gun to his own head and starts eating.

** In the Forest of Death, a variation is used; Ino possesses the body of Kin, one of the Sound Genin, and threatens to commit suicide unless Dosu and Zaku stand down. However, the two know that any damage done to a victim of possession by that technique also hurts the possessor, and not only see through the bluff but attack Kin to injure Ino.

However, the two know that any damage done to a victim of possession by that technique also hurts the possessor, and not only see through the bluff but attack Kin to injure Ino. Not to mention that the Sound Genin don't like each other and thus don't actually care if Kin dies, so long as they complete their mission.

* In the ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'' episode "Mr. and Mrs. Mxyzptlk", Mxyzptlk tries to force Supergirl to marry him. To stop him, she sets the Fortress of Solitude to self-destruct, pointing out it would be enough to kill her. Since he's not allowed to use his powers to stop someone from killing themselves, he panics and begs her to shut it off. She gives him the deactivation code and he enters it. Since it was in Kryptonian script, he found out too late that it was "KLTPZYXM", his name backwards, banishing him back to the Fifth Dimension.

* Also in ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4: VideoGame/ModernWarfare''. The level "The Sins of the Father" concerns the protagonists tracking down the [[TheDragon son of]] the BigBad, and they manage to corner him on the roof of a building, shouting at him to drop his weapon and come quietly. If you wait around long enough, or move forward to restrain him as Captain Price tells you, he simply [[AteHisGun puts his weapon up to his chin and blow his brains out]] (telling you [[BilingualBonus in unsubtitled Russian]] that "you will all die soon anyway" if you wait around).
* Just like in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', Will threatens to kill himself in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' unless Barbossa lets Elizabeth (plus Sora, Donald, and Goofy) go free. [[spoiler: Unlike in the film, this backfires thanks to Pete's presence, and everyone else is left [[BoundAndGagged tied up]] on the ''Interceptor'']].

* A twist on this occurs in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' episode 34. After realizing that the Freedom's pilot has a ThouShaltNotKill policy, Shinn Asuka exploits it in their next battle by deliberately putting himself in situations where his attacks would become fatal, which forces Kira to check his swings.

## The protagonist is dealing with [[EvenEvilHasStandards a principled antagonist]] who just doesn't want any casualties. If not, it's just plain funny.
