* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' has Stan's attempt to kill a war criminal being botched by a suicidal lemur; when the guy tries to shoot Stan and Francine as they're fleeing (using Stan's gun that he was attempting to shoot him with), the lemur jumps in front of his bullet in slow motion, then gives a thumbs-up as it dies.

* ''Anime/ParanoiaAgent'' has the episode "Happy Family Planning". Three people are trying to commit suicide, with two of them trying to keep the other from doing so because she's too young. And its easily the goofiest episode in the series.

** In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' {{crossover}} "Simpsorama", when the rampaging Bart gremlins rip off Scruffy's mustache, he decides that life without a mustache isn't worth living and blows up his head with a laser handgun. His headless body is shown cleaning up during the end credits.

* One Christmas episode of ''TheJackBennyProgram'' had Jack shopping for presents. A [[MelBlanc clerk]] helps him with a gift and message, but Jack keeps recalling the gift so he can change the message. Finally, Jack decides to return the gift and get a cheaper version. The increasingly frazzled clerk (MelBlanc, at his hysterical over-the-top best) [[SuicideAsComedy ultimately leaves to shoot himself.]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Jack hears the gunshot, then realizes he'll have to make his own change from the register.]]

[[folder: Stand-Up Comedy]]
* Part of [[Creator/BoBurnham Bo Burnham's]] routine in "Make Happy." He attempts to imitate Katy Perry-esque inspirational songs and devolves into imploring his audience to kill themselves, before apologizing, discussing how suicide is a serious issue, and that if you're desperate enough to take words of wisdom from pop music, you should [[CrossesTheLineTwice kill yourself]]. Burnham realizes the gravity of the issue he's joking with and goes as far to immediately apologize for the song, begging listeners to not complain about it on their blogs.

* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' features [[TheAssimilator Cell]] use Android 17's voice to try and convince his sister, Android 18, to let Cell absorb her, and doesn't even try to cover up the fact that she will die in the process. The comedy comes in the fact that Cell gives 17 a TotallyRadical vernacular.
-->''Come on sis! You gotta chill yourself before you kill yourself!''



* During a flashback in ''WesternAnimation/YvonOfTheYukon'' some royal soldiers throw themselves at the king's fireplace to act as fuel for the fire. It was rather [[NightmareFuel creepy]].

* Used as an example of how interminably stodgy [[TheSpock Prowl]] is in ''ComicBook/TransformersLastStandOfTheWreckers''. He had a captured Decepticon commander at his mercy and spent the better part three days going over every single one of the Decepticon's many violations of the Tyrest Accord in excruciating detail. It was the end of day three before anyone realized that the Decepticon had been ''dead'' for about twelve hours, having preferred to shut off his own Spark (the equivalent of willing one's heart to stop beating and wiping out the soul in the process) rather than suffer through any more tedium by listening to Prowl. In other words, Prowl has successfully ''bored someone to death''.
