* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', a minor character named Brigo will try to talk Link out of jumping off a bridge under the mistaken assumption that Link is trying to kill himself. That Brigo regularly patrols along the bridge and has a little station next to it where he sleeps and gets out of the rain carry the implication that he has done this with lots of people.

* Happens in ''Anime/WelcomeToTheNHK'', when Misaki (with others help) convinces an entire suicide club (which Satou joined) to abort their plans. [[spoiler: In a particularly dark twist, Satou is not genuinely suicidal and just wound up roped into the pact with everyone else. As each member of the group realizes they have something to live for, it causes Satou to realize how empty and sad his own life is, and by the end the now-hopeful members of the pact are having to physically stop him from jumping.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'': Undyne reveals that she first met Dr. Alphys while Alphys was staring into the abyss (a waterfall with no visible bottom) and remarks that she looked, "contemplative." Undyne asked Alphys what she thought of the abyss...which led to Alphys spending ''hours'' explaining every single theory she had to a now captivated Undyne. It's not clear if Undyne knew what she was doing, but the way she pauses before saying certain words implies that she might have.

Undyne asked Alphys what she thought of the abyss...which led to Alphys spending ''hours'' explaining every single theory she had to a now captivated Undyne. It's not clear if Undyne knew what she was doing, but the way she pauses before saying certain words implies that she might have.have, or at the very least realized it in hindsight after the fact.

* Comicbook/{{Deadpool}} once dragged a would-be teenage jumper on a night of crazy adventure. He ends it by taking her to the emergency room, having already texted them that she would be walking in for help. Wade tells her that he doesn't think she's crazy, and that she just needs some help. He's self-aware (and self-loathing) enough to realize that ''he'' can't truly help her, but the people at the emergency room can.
