* Part of the setup of ''Film/BramStokersDracula''. Vlad Dracula's fiancee, believing Vlad to be dead, killed herself. The priests declared her to be damned because of this (since suicide was a mortal sin according to the religious doctrine of the period -- see Religion below), which causes a grieving and distraught Vlad to renounce God and become a vampire.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', Kiryu's guilt after his actions as a Dark Signer make him suicidal, but unable to do it because it's too quick. (He's so close to the DespairEventHorizon because of it, he ''wants'' to suffer.) The whole reason for the Crashtown arc is because he figures he'll lose the AbsurdlyHighStakes game (higher than usual, even for the franchise) and die that way.

* [[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 entire scheme is dependent on Catholic belief, which considers suicide sinful (see below). Turns out the pair are banking on performing SuicideByCop.

* Played with in ''Series/DowntonAbby'', where [[spoiler:Thomas's]] suicide attempt seems to be viewed as shameful by the more old-fashioned Carson but treated with sympathy by the rest of the cast.
