* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in ''Film/{{Dogma}}''. It's mentioned that once Loki and Bartleby are given a clean slate and are considered forgiven for all their sins, the heroes can't kill them or else they'll ascend to Heaven and set off TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. When Jay asks what do to if they kill themselves, Bethany replies they won't do that since the entire scheme is dependent on Catholic belief, which considers suicide sinful (see below). Turns out the pair are banking on performing SuicideByCop.

* [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagged]] in the ''Literature/ImperialRadch'' trilogy. Radchaai have access to physician-assisted suicide as a matter of course; however, one character has a minor family scandal in the form of a relative who killed herself, which suggests something much messier and more personal.

* Despite being lectured about the sinfulness of crushes, dancing, and fashion, the protagonist of ''Film/StationsOfTheCross'' doesn't hear about the wrongness of suicide from her fundamentalist mother or zealous priest, but from her friend, Bernadette. Unfortunately, by this point, suicide is the one thing our hero can think of to avoid insulting God, so she refuses to admit that her desire to die is not good.

* ''Literature/TheSilerianTrilogy'': Suicide is anathema to Silerians. When some Silerian men are imprisoned, they find it ludicrous that the Valdani took steps to prevent them from hanging themselves.

* In the play "Emilia Galotti" from Lessing, the main character demands her father to kill her in the end, and he stabs her. While she lies dying, she argues her father is not to blame because she wanted to be killed, so that he will not be regarded as murderer afterwards. But he replies by taaking the blame on himself and denying that her death was suicide, because if it was suicide, she could not get a proper christian bureal.

Technically it might not be deemed suicide, though it's probably suicide by proxy. She is wrong that this wouldn't be considered murder, at least legally, as well.

** People think Dexter's foster father and legendary cop Harry Morgan died of a heart disease, but it was later revealed he had killed himself (overdose of medication). Harry's superior and friend Captain Matthews felt that suicide would be a serious blow to Harry's reputation and that it would taint his immaculate service record.

** It is considered especially shameful since many tryhard players will think that it's BetterToDieThanbeKilled because that way they won't give the other player the satisfaction of getting a kill, '''especially''' if that kill would be a revenge kill. In a way, suicide in GTA Online where DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist is a KillSteal where the stolen kill is oneself.
