* Considering what the Mane Six [[CoDragons have spent the last thousand years doing]] while [[BrainwashedAndCrazy under Discord's corruption]] in the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' [[BadFuture Dark World]] timeline, it's understandable Rainbow Dash feels this way when she discovers Discord's {{Sadistic Choice}}s were [[ILied all lies]] and she failed to [[spoiler:kill Twilight and get Discord to reset time to before his reign]]. She doesn't even struggle when [[spoiler:Rarity tries to rip out her Element]] and even tells the others [[spoiler:to let her]].

* In ''Fanfic/SolitaryPinion'', Doctor Remedial Oath believes that a teenage filly purposely jumped into a lake, after what he [[DespairEventHorizon believes to have been]] [[AbuseMistake a lifetime of abuse]]. {{Subverted|Trope}}, because said filly is actually a [[BalefulPolymorph transformed human]] [[DamnYouMuscleMemory unused to her new body]] that ''[[{{Determinator}} refused]]'' [[{{Determinator}} to give in to despair]]; she was actually trying to adapt to her new body, walk away, and find civilization.

** This happened with Granny Pie, but the exact circumstances of this are still unclear. It's later revealed that HearingVoices affects whichever Pie family member has Pinkie's abilities each generation, and many end up taking their own lives.
* An interesting twist on this trope shows up at the end of ''[[FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse Just Us Little Ponies]]''. After finally realizing that no matter what he does, Princess Luna will never restore his political power, Duke Greengrass attempts a form of political suicide. He makes a bargain with Archduke Fisher to restore his power in exchange for taking down Baron Mounty Max, but does so while he knows Max is evesdropping.

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': In chapter 8, Ritsuko was so depressed because she'd committed all kind of crimes for the love of a man who didn't care about her that she started drinking wine copiously after taking painkillers. And then she attempted to take ''more'' pills, knowing fully well what would happen if she mixed sedatives and alcohol.
-->ĎYouíre halfway into your fourth bottle of wine and trying to take more pills. Youíre a goddam doctor, Ritsuko. Are we still going to pretend you donít remember what happens when you mix sedatives and alcohol at this dosage? Are we still pretending this isnít a half-assed suicide attempt?í
* ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'': Shortly after her birthday [[spoiler:Asuka could not take it anymore and locked herself in the bathroom and swallowed a bottle of sleeping pills.]]
* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': In the immediate aftermath of Third Impact, with the whole of humanity wiped out and the world in ruins, Shinji and Asuka ended up walking into the sea together; they didn't know if they'd enter Instrumentality or drown, and neither of them really cared by that point. Instead, they ended up [[PeggySue going back in time]]. Then Shinji nearly ends up putting a bullet through his head when they meet up just after the Third Angel happens, and he realises she remembers ''everything'', including the whole "DudeShesLikeInAComa" incident he thought she was unconscious for. This is not his last fit of self-destructive behaviour, but fortunately Misato and his fellow pilots are aware of it and doing their best to help.
** In Chapter 3 we learn that when Kaworu "went all 'ICannotSelfTerminate' on me", as Shinji bitterly puts it, he ''really'' meant it. When it didn't work, he [[DespairEventHorizon gave in to despair]] and [[NotSoDifferent tried to initiate Third Impact.]]

** [[http://eva303.smackjeeves.com/comics/1769985/034/ A line in chapter 12]] suggests that she has attempted to commit suicide before the beginning of the story.
* ''Fanfic/{{HERZ}}'': Seven years before the start of the story [[spoiler:Shinji slit his wrists after an argument with Asuka because he believed that she hated him and never wanted to see him again.]] The scene was very similar to Asukaís own suicide attempt during the series.
* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': When the story begins, Asuka is hospitalized after having attempted to kill herself.
-->Asuka had once felt like dying too, several times in fact, but there was always something that kept her going.\\
No, not always. She had wandered the streets for days. She had starved herself. She had stripped naked and climbed into that bathtub. And she had waited, her life meaningless, her pride destroyed, her whole being slowly slipping from reality.
* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': Invoked. After Shinji reveals his whole story to him, [[spoiler:Kaji]] wonders how the kid has kept himself from "eating the gun", so to speak.
* ''Fanfic/TheOneILoveIs'': Asuka had been completely beaten, humiliated and even {{MindRape}}d, after which she knew she would be replaced.

[[spoiler:Fortunately she got found in time to save her life.]]
* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'' gives these examples:
** When [[spoiler:Gendo arrives in Terminal Dogma and finds that Rei isn't there he tries to kill himself in a last ditch attempt to be with Yui again.]] It doesn't work.
** The epilogue reveals that [[spoiler:two SEELE members also tried to do it to escape arrest after their group was publicly exposed by Kaji.]] One succeeded, the other didn't.
* ''Manga/ReTake'', the most famous Evangelion doujinshi series, does this to Rei, who hangs herself after being rejected by Shinji. The fact that before when she was confessing to him she splashed red paint on her self to make it red and [[MadnessMantra chanted]] "[[GratuitousJapanese anta baka]]" makes even more chilling.

* In [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9758731/44/Gensokyo-20XXI-The-Outside-World Chapter 44: Early Preludes to a New Winter of Sorrow]] of [[FanFic/Gensokyo20XX Gensokyo 20XXI]], Eirin, surprisingly, succeeds in killing herself (by severing an artery), dying with a smile to know that she '''''could'''''. She is supposed to be immortal but her willingness to die overrode her ability to resurrect upon death, effectively granting her wish, even though her motivation was unclear at the most. It is never exactly stated why she killed herself, besides, "Is it wrong to want to feel death, even though if one cannot experience it?" but it is implied that she killed herself out of the uncertainty of their situation, which caused her a lot of stress (leading to her developing anemia and to suffer from alopecia) and depression and, apparently, she might have done so [[BettertoDieThanbeKilled way of escaping capture]].
** In 20XXIII, we do eventually find out her reasons for suicide and it was because of all the hell and uncertainty. The entire diary entry was basically her suicide note
** Later on, in 20XXIV, we have Ran, chapter 9, after a near-miss with a rogue male kitsune. According to Mokou, she's attempted suicide more than twice by slitting her wrists. She fails at it nonetheless. She attempts it again when she think she's killed Reimu. In Chapter 62, she was apparently contemplating it. Later on, we have Chen, in chapter 60, attempting suicide drowning herself, that of which she gave no motives for and probably can't on the grounds that brain damage from said failed suicide attempt possibly rendered her unable to talk, however, it is known that she wanted her mom back and had given up on life, which would be as far as motives go. Two chapters later, she does seem to have her motives somewhat explained in her suicide note, the which Flandre finds.
** In 20XXI, we have Nitori attempting suicide by ramming herself into wall, the which could have broken her neck. She failed.
** In 20XXIV and ''The Unsaid Rivalry of the Youkai and the Shrine Maiden'', we had Yukari contemplating suicide due to whatever sadness and pain she was suffering. Both times she is convinced not to.
