* ComicBook/{{Superman}} suffered one early in his Post-Crisis career. After being dragged into another dimension to deal with three alternate universe Kryptonian criminals who had practically wiped all life from Earth, Superman is forced to execute them as there would be no other way to bring them to justice on his world. The decision causes him to have a breakdown and start sleepwalking... well, sleep''vigilante'' as Gangbuster until the Guardian snapped him out of it. Supes was so horrified by what he had done, he exiled himself from the Earth and stayed that way until he could confront his demons.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'':
** Superman's cousin Kara Zor-El had one of these after [[spoiler:the destruction of]] ''Comicbook/NewKrypton''. Superman hugged her while she cried in space, and she considered quitting the hero gig for a while.
** In the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' arc she went through one after meeting and beating Lobo, believing everyone wanted to manipulate her and she belonged nowhere. She was so upset and furious that she became a Red Lantern. A while later she was told that she would be a Red Lantern forever because she would die if she took her Power Ring off. She fell to her knees in despair and fury, threw her head back and screamed while incandescent light poured from her eyes.

** Sonic himself had one when [[spoiler: his girlfriend, Princess Sally, is roboticized, the evil Ixis Naugus becomes king, the Babylon Rouges get away after endangering his city ForScience, Antione makes a HeroicSacrifice that saves Sonic's life (whom of which [[VitriolicBestBuds he wasn't exactly the nicest person to]]) and Bunnie runs away from feeling useless due to her recent derobotization]]. He's gotten better though.

* In ''ComicBook/AnimalMan'', Buddy Baker has a BSOD lasting at least several days when [[spoiler:an assassin murders his wife and children]]. This subverts [[spoiler:temporarily]] the normal tendency of DarkAge superheroes to immediately go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.

* ComicBook/{{X-23}} is constantly slipping in and out of these. When first introduced in ''ComicBook/{{NYX}}'' she's virtually mute, and in her first few panels she seems as if she's barely aware of what's going on around her. Then we learn in ''ComicBook/InnocenceLost'' and ''Target: X'' just ''what'' [[BreakTheCutie put her into that state]]. In fact, in the latter book she's broken so completely she's gone outright DeathSeeker, intending to kill ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and herself. She goes into another in the third arc of her solo series when she accidentally attacks Gambit, and spends the rest of the day and well into the night curled up in bed staring at her claws with Gambit sitting vigil over her. By the time she turns up in ''ComicBook/AllNewXMen'' she's in yet ''another'' one, due to the 1-2 punch of what happened to her on [[ComicBook/AvengersArena Murderworld]] and shortly after being captured and tortured by the Purifiers, leaving her wandering the streets of Miami in an amnesiac state.
