* ''Series/BlackMirror'': ''"Playtest"'' is all about this. Unlike most episodes where the main character is a VillainProtagonist or someone who could really do with a lesson, Cooper is an {{Adorkable}} NiceGuy who is put through immense psychological torture when the experimental horror game he's testing malfunctions and begins using his very deepest {{Adult Fear}}s on him, like making him think he's going to see his mother hanging from the beams in the ceiling and making him think he's contracted Alzheimer's. None of his torment is even remotely deserved, [[spoiler:and in the end it is revealed that he never even survived the malfunction and that in reality he died alone and in terror, screaming out for his mother.]]

* ''TheOffice'': Erin Hannon has a complete ''mental breakdown'' in Secretary's Day after being told that Andy has dated Angela. [[{{Yandere}} She]] '''really''' [[BewareTheNiceOnes didn't]] [[ComedicSociopathy take it]] [[PsychoExGirlfriend well]].

** He's pretty resilient, though; only Lew's death subdued him past the end of an episode, and even then, he's back to his old self relatively soon. The one who comes the closest to a major breakdown is actually [[TheStoic Ed]].

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': Obvious examples come from MutantEnemy: River came conveniently pre-broken, but we got to see the earlier cutie in a very few flashbacks. Or, if you watch the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKYFNsnO-tc R. Tam Sessions]], you get to [[SanitySlippage see the whole process,]] including a rather jarring look into what River was like ''before'' she got [[MindRape broken in the brainpan.]]

* ''Seris/{{Kamen Rider Gaim}}'' has plenty of this. Especially when it comes to the characters of Kazuraba Kouta and Kureshima Mitsuzane.
** Mitsuzane even goes so far as a DespairEventHorizon.

* ''Seris/{{Kamen ''Franchise/KamenRider'':
** ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'': Shinji Kido is [[AllLovingHero All loving]] IdiotHero in ThereCanBeOnlyOne plot. Pretty much everyone else participating in
Rider Gaim}}'' has plenty of this. Especially when it comes War is a jerk, an ass or some combination thereof. The events start wearing him out through the time to the point where he abandons his original goal for a while. He recovers and resumes fighting mirror monsters to protect people.
** ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' pulls this into DarknessInducedAudienceApathy territory at times.
*** It was mostly rounds of breaking and recovering for Kouta Kazuraba, initially a WideEyedIdealist teen. He even had several
characters of Kazuraba Kouta and working on breaking him or at least waiting around to see his idealism fade.
*** Mitsuzane
Kureshima Mitsuzane.
has it similar, just without the recovering part. He falls over DespairEventHorizon early into the story and just keeps on going. His ImageSong summs it up nicely just by being called ''Point Of No Return''.
** Mitsuzane even goes so far ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': Emu Hojo is well meaning doctor who wants everyone to be happy. The CrapsackWorld he lives in and his jerkish fellow riders usually ruin his efforts. The breaking never fully works, but his later attitude is rightfully described as a DespairEventHorizon.''[[AllLovingHero Do no]] harm. [[GoodIsNotDumb Take no]] crap.''

*** During the more [[FoeYay "serious"]] scenes between the Doctor and the Master, you can see the Master himself suffers this because of the drums. Suffers it horribly, in fact. Which means that ''everything the Master has ever done'' was the fault of [[spoiler: Rassilon and the Council]]; he started out as a completely normal child. Poor mad Master.

*** Then there's ''The End of Time.'' The Doctor is already tormented by the prophecy "[[ArcWords He will knock four times]]". But then the Master comes back, beats him to a fare-thee-well and then forces the Doctor to watch as everyone he knows and loves on Earth (with the exception of Wilf and Donna) is [[GrandTheftMe turned into The Master]] (it's never said, but a foregone conclusion that Sarah, Martha, Tegan, Barbara, Ian, Ace and so on were Mastericized by the incident). Then, the Time Lords return, threatening to [[ApocalypseHow destroy all of time]] so that they can [[AGodAmI gain apotheosis]] and finally gain a (pyrrhic) victory in the Time War. The Doctor has to send them -- all of them and most likely Romana, amongst others -- back to the Time War to be annihilated. And then, he gets to see just who the "he" was who would knock four times, heralding his death: [[spoiler:Wilf, who was trapped in a radiation-safety chamber that was about to fail.]] The Doctor has a HeroicBSOD of epic proportions before rescuing him, and is pretty much not the same for the last 20 minutes of screen time left in his life, nary cracking a joke or smiling, but instead paying last visits to old friends before regenerating in the most violent regeneration scene in the show's history.
