Can Richey Edwards carving 4 Real be considered an example, even if it is notorious there are good reasons for questioning if it actually happened. If you've seen someone write with a knife, unless they are really gouging it out, you can't tell where one stroke of a letter ends and another begins till the blood starts to flow. To scribe anything clearly and legibly is not the result of a mad moment but a long and deliberate process.

I find it a little interesting that flagellation and other forms of ritual or religious self harm aren't discussed much, if at all, on this page. Do they have their own page I don't know about, and if not, should one be created? Or should I just add examples to this one?

Would an eating disorder be an example of this trope?

I don't think so. Though often related, Self-Injury and Eating Disorders are different behavious. Personally, I think Eating Disorders should have their own page, but I think it's been brought up and shot down in YKTTW.

Well, I found Weight Woe, which encompasses eating disorders, so I guess I answered my own question.

Just a note about the removal of episode numbers: throughout the wiki, single-episode examples either use the episode title or just don't specify the episode, rather then list the season and number. I removed the numbers for consistency's sake. For single-episode examples, please feel free to add the titles if you know them.

However, it's not necessary to do so when it is an ongoing plotline or problem for the character. For example, in the Degrassi examples, Adam's example could have the episode name (which I don't know off the top of myy head) added since he doesn't struggle with SI outside of the one episode. (I don't think, anyway, I stopped watching a while ago). Ellie's example, however, really doesn't need the episode title; even though only one episode shows her cutting, its frequently discussed and is an ongoing problem for her rather than solely an episodic incident.

I just did some work on this page, but would someone else mind elaborating on the BoysDontCry example? I haven't seen that movie.

Also, I don't know how to create a redirect, but could someone create one for "Self Injury", and possibly "Self-Harm" and "Self-Injury"? Both terms are common.
