* [[spoiler:Sakura Oogami]]'s death in ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' turns out to have been a suicide; the victim had just admitted she was blackmailed into being TheMole, and she knew her continued presence was a ticking time bomb that would eventually get someone killed. So she locked herself in a room and drank some poison. Unfortunately for the player, Monokuma tampers with the suicide note, leading [[spoiler:Aoi Asahina]] to believe she did what she did out of despair and try to cover up the suicide to get everyone killed.

* ''Series/MurderSheWrote'': In "[[spoiler:Trails and Tribulations]]", the VictimOfTheWeek actually committed suicide, but his wife covered it up and attempted to make it look like murder.
* A ''Series/{{Forever}}'' VictimOfTheWeek did this accidentally: she intentionally overdosed on her medication to induce a simple, quiet death with the intent of going out whilst looking upon a painting created by a long-lost lover. Unfortunately, an unanticipated delay between her overdose and her arrival at the painting caused her to fall down a flight of stairs and suffer severe injuries. Undeterred, she then crawled on the floor to get that one last look at her beloved's painting; this unfortunately created the impression that she had been beaten and that she desperately attempted to escape her attacker before she succumbed. The first suspect was the man who had unwittingly caused that delay.
