Driven To Suicide: Webcomics
  • This is the usual response someone gets when they've read My Immortal.
  • Lexx from Alien Dice tried to kill himself several times but survived because of tiny machines injected into his circulation. He doesn't dare to try the most radical methods for fear of the pain if the machines would still repair his body. Only after several attempts to die failed did he gather the determination to try and win.
  • Justin from El Goonish Shive seriously contemplated suicide a few years ago (in comic time). Big Bad Damien actually committed suicide upon realizing he was not a god.
  • Luna Travoria from Dominic Deegan tried to kill herself twice in the same story arc. The first attempt ended with Luna and Dominic uncovering a plot from her crazy mother, in which she would make a great deal of money by Luna driven to suicide. The old lady would wind up dead anyway, after picking a fight with a Royal Knight and getting her head chopped off. The second time, Luna jumped off a bridge after said crazy mother left her nothing in her will, and her half-dead body was discovered by Dominic and his cat Spark while on a fishing trip.
    • Nimmel Feenix later tries the jumping-off-a-bridge strategy for himself after a rather horrific attack on his class by a Psycho for Hire. He's stopped by none other than Luna herself.
  • Two characters from YU+ME: dream feel Driven to Suicide.
  • One of the Paladins in The Order of the Stick commits seppuku after a slaughter in the throneroom
  • Questionable Content has Faye, a girl with obvious issues. It is later revealed that the reason she is so severely messed up is that her father, who she saw as her best friend and in whom she confided everything, committed suicide for reasons unknown by blowing his brains out with a gun, in front of her. He went outside in the early morning without realizing that she had gotten out of bed and followed him outside. Then he blew his brains out before she could call out to him. Yikes.
    • It's also implied that the car accident she was in just before the story started was an attempt. Faye says that she isn't sure herself, because she doesn't remember the moments leading up to the crash.
  • Scotty kills himself in Something Positive.
  • Breakfast of the Gods: Trix tries to hang himself after betraying Cap'n Crunch into a fatal ambush. He doesn't succeed, because the tree cuts him off and says "Silly rabbit."
  • Artie Crowley of Concession was seen holding a gun to his head after realising he had had sex with a prepubescent boy while in a trance and unable to realise what he was doing, but he didn't go through with it.
  • This is the entire basis for every storyline in Suicide for Hire, which is Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
  • ApenShephard of The Silver Eye lost his will to live and tried to take his own life when he was only ten years old after being exiled from his country, and a number of other tragic events.
  • After untolds amounts of emotional suffering due to his robotic form, the title character of Warbot In Accounting finally decides to kill himself by jumping off his office building while leaving behind a note scribbled "No Love". It doesn't work due to him being Nigh Invulnerable and he ends up taking crap from his co-workers for skipping work.
  • BLU Sniper in Cuanta Vida, after losing both his lover and his eyes. Because he was blinded, though, Medic had to help him.
    • Or so the BLU Medic claims; subsequent events suggest another possibility.
  • Otter Soldiers: Subverted. One of the characters at one point contemplates upon committing suicide. She ends up thinking too much about how it could end up going horribly wrong (survived but crippled etc.), and is ultimately unable to go through with it.
  • Neilli of Juathuur is driven to suicide by Meidar, who decides that a girl that wants to be a healer would make a perfect torturer. Possibly a Secret Test of Character directed at Neilli's boyfriend Thomil.
  • Daichi Takana's mother is apparently driven to suicide by a Mafia boss, who just so happens to be his friend's father in The Mitadake Saga
  • Conor from FreakAngels shoots himself in the head, not out of a true desire to die, but out of a wish to upgrade his mental abilities. His action fits this trope because he really didn't know whether he'd survive, and his conversation with Arkady and relationship with the other Freak Angels suggest that he didn't much care.
  • At the end of Anders Loves Maria, Tina commits suicide after failing to win Anders back.
  • Wapsi Square Back Story: Jin tried to derail the spell with this. It didn't work
  • Bug sees this as an acceptable response when your web server goes down.
  • Lucy does this in "Disaster Dominoes" near the end to join the recently run down Mike.
  • A Running Gag across MS Paint Adventures as a whole is people being driven to suicide near a stump in an empty field, later named the Land of Stumps and Dismay in Homestuck. First it was the protagonist of Jailbreak, then later an audience member of Problem Sleuth and Homestuck gives it some serious consideration in response to events in the comics themselves.
    • However, a few of the characters have attempted suicide: the Ace Dick who played the Game of Life with Death in Problem Sleuth, and the Handmaid in Homestuck. Both cases proved temporary, although the Handmaid eventually succeeded in Suicide by Cop.
  • In Monsieur Charlatan, Charlatan is contemplating in the opening scene.
  • In Pacificators, Larima Torbern is implied to be this. She recklessly uses her power all the time, which only makes her burn herself out much faster (as people with powers shorten their lifespan if they use their power excessively), and she shows slight Death Seeker tendencies, such as placing herself in the path of danger for no reason at all.
