*In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, [[spoiler:although he doesn't act on it, when Snape and Dumbledore talk after Lily Potter's death, Snape makes the much forgotten remark "I wish... I wish I were dead...". Dumbledore quickly shoots this down by saying in a harsh tone "And what use would that be to anyone?"]]

* The Music/{{Vocaloid}} song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mP6LCQc0I8 My R]] is about a suicidal girl that keeps running into other girls when she goes to jump. She's shown making the first two girls realize that their issues aren't worth dying over and convincing [[AbusiveParents the third one]] to wait a bit longer. [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] at the end of the song, when it's revealed that there never were any other girls. The song is actually about the girl going over her own motives for suicide and talking ''herself'' down. [[DrivenToSuicide By the end, she's given up on trying.]]]]

* In one episode of ''Series/{{MASH}}'', Colonel Potter encounters a soldier that had extensive facial injuries and wanted to kill himself because he feared that all of his loved ones would reject him. Potter does his best to convince the soldier otherwise, but to little avail. Eventually, he catches the soldier trying to use some of the camp's anesthetic gas to kill himself, and Potter feigns outrage before trying to "assist" the soldier with the deed. The soldier panics and tries to flee, proving Potter's point that he had not truly lost his will to live.

* As soon as the title character in ''Literature/EdenGreen'' awakens to find she's been infected with an immortal alien needle symbiote, she puts a shotgun in her mouth. When her best friend is unable to talk her out of it, the psychopath who infected her tries to point out that the symbiote will keep her alive. In the end, [[spoiler:all that saves her is the fact that the gun is empty]].

* Music/TheFray's song "How to Save a Life" is about someone attempting and failing to talk down a suicidal boy. The lead singer was inspired to write it by his time spent working at a camp for troubled teenagers, and a boy he met there, whom he said "no one could write a manual on how to save him."
