* ''VideoGame/BloodBorne'' gives us Micolash, Host of the Nightmare: his experiments with [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow Insight]] have smashed his mind to little chunks of crazy, and by the time you find him he's babbling off-kilter prayers to [[spoiler: [[EldritchAbomination Kos (or some say Kosm)]]]], howling like a wolf at random intervals and [[GigglingVillain cackling like an imbecile]]. Whether it's terrifying or hilarious is a matter of personal interpretation, but none of it makes him any less dangerous.

* ''Videogame/DarkestDungeon'' plays this one for drama. One of the various Afflictions heroes can suffer when their SanityMeter is topped out is becoming Irrational: Essentially, they completely snap under the pressure and start to behave extremely erratically, wandering all over the place, refusing to act, doing things at random, refusing healing for stupid reasons and constantly ramble about nonsensical things. Their usefulness drops ''fast'' once they've gone insane in this manner.

* It can be argued that, if late to the "trope-naming party", the final level of [[VideoGame/{{Banjo-Tooie}} Banjo-Tooie]] should well be considered among these hallowed halls, since it is indeed called [[http://banjokazooie.wikia.com/wiki/Cloud_Cuckooland "Cloud Cuckooland"]].

* Merlin of ''VideoGame/{{Guenevere}}'' frequently behaves in erratic, nonsensical ways, like making reference to things that haven't happened or handing out carrots to the royalty for seemingly no reason. Given [[Myth/KingArthur the character]] this incarnation was[[TheOnceAndFutureKing inspired by]], he may just be operating on a different scale of time.

* The ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' series on Nintendo's various handhelds features Fawful, a nonsensical weirdo who on the surface looks and sounds like a goofy bumbling minion, thanks to his swirl-eye glasses, giant grin, and tendency to speak in a combination of [[IntentionalEngrishForFunny terribly mangled English]] and [[TalksLikeASimile absurd similies]]. Go a little further and you'll discover that he's a DangerouslyGenreSavvy MadScientist and TheChessmaster of all things. He exists in his own bizarre little world about 80% of the time, but he's still proven himself to be more terrifingly competent and effective than the better portion of Mario's RoguesGallery.

* Manah in ''{{Drakengard}}'', when she's not trying to be [[EnfanteTerrible actively evil]], has all the charm of a cute little girl playing with imaginary friends.

** Aperture Science in general didn't have much in the way of sanity even before the insane AI killed everyone and took over. Probably due to the aforementioned Cave Johnson -- anyone who wasn't already crazy would either quit, be fired, die in an accident, or go nuts.

** In the comics, the people of Teufort have been rendered this way due to lead poisoning. Mayor Mike, in particular, does things like building a collage of things related to the forthcoming execution of the Scout and Spy and covering it in pregnancy-related stickers because those were all he had to hand, and it turns out near the end of that issue that he randomly ordered one of Teufort's residents to call himself Guiseppe and speak in a pseudo-Italian accent. The Soldier's mental instability is implied to (partly) be due to drinking the same water (or at least made it worse), judging by his surprised reaction when Miss Pauling mentions that this is the reason she gives the team bottled water.

Either that, or he's so crazy that lead poisoning has no discernible effect on his sanity.
