* One of the earliest examples, if not ''the'' earliest, occurs in WinsorMcCay's ''ComicStrip/DreamOfTheRarebitFiend'': [[http://www.comicstriplibrary.org/display/952 see here]]. Needless to say given the title, it's AllJustADream.

* In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', there is a society where everyone commits suicide at the age of 60. Originally to alleviate the strain of paying for keeping the elderly alive, it has become a way of honoring the individual and their family. Lwaxana Troi attempted to dissuade a man of this society from doing it, but he ultimately went off to after he was begged by his daughter (whose mother had already done so).

* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'': In "A Taste of Armageddon" they're used in lieu of nuclear warfare; computers select those who have been 'killed' in each attack, and the victims report voluntarily to the suicide booths, thus sparing their civilization the horrors of mass destruction. Things go well until Kirk and his crew are designated dead.
