** However, this is played very straight immediately before the above example, [[spoiler: where John's discovery that his dad is just a boring businessman and [[MindScrew isn't really into "harlequins" at all]] is enough to send him into the fetal postion.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'': Of all people, [[spoiler:Sam has one when he saw several years later the cabin in which he was tortured by Sandra for days]]. Seeing the character who until then [[spoiler:was known for his NervesOfSteel]] fleeing from the scene, having nightmarish flashbacks and needing some time to compose himself is rather distressing.

* [[Webcomic/GirlGenius Webcomic/GirlGenius has a few, but given the GrayAndBlackMorality of the setting, the degree of Heroic in HeroicBSOD may vary:
**
Gilgamesh Wulfenbach]] Wulfenbach suffers one of these when he thinks that [[spoiler: Agatha's dead.]] dead,]] which lasts for a couple of months.
**
Agatha later has one of her own when [[spoiler: Lars dies]], but hers involves a calliope and an attack carousel. Given carousel which is capable of levelling a small town.
** Zeetha is heavily implied to be suffering from depression before her appearance in
the GrayAndBlackMorality of comic, due to the setting, fact that she's spent the degree of Heroic in last few years unsure whether her homeland actually exists or whether all her memories are fever-dreams. She finally gets confirmation that it's real from Agatha, only to be told that the one person who could possibly know where it is has been missing for years, which triggers a [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20041029#.VvGe8-KLTIU more traditional]] HeroicBSOD may vary.and a BigNo.
** Gil gets another BSOD in the most recent section of the comic which is really rather impressive - [[spoiler: after the timestop in Mechanicsburg, he believes that Agatha and everyone else (including his [[LoveTriangle rival for Agatha's attentions]], Tarvek) is stuck in it,]] which leads to his HeroicBSOD lasting for ''two and a half years''. This includes barely sleeping (not sleeping for months at a time, to be precise) and being constantly stuck in TheMadnessPlace for the entire time, which is really ''really'' bad for your sanity. This BSOD doesn't actually end when he sees [[spoiler: Agatha]] again - it takes [[spoiler: [[FoeYay Tarvek coming out of the timestop]] and proving to be sane and healthy]] to pull him out of it.
--> '''Bohrlaikha:''' He no longer sleeps.\\
'''Doctor:''' '''''What?!''''' For how long?\\
'''Bohrlaika:''' Weeks? Months? I do not know.\\
'''Doctor:''' Ridiculous! That's dangerous! One can go '''''mad!'''''\\
'''Bohrlaika:''' How would we '''''know?'''''

** Still in "That Which Redeems", Torg goes through a mild one of these after [[spoiler:an AlternateUniverse version of Zoë he'd been dating]] dies, and immediately jumps to Roaring Rampage Of Revenge mode. He never completely ''stops'' being his goofy self after the ordeal and returning to his home dimension, but he is a lot angrier and mopier for a while, especially around [[spoiler:Zoe]].
