* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': When Charles was in between 9 and 12 years old, he was HearingVoices and wasn't aware that he was telepathic, so he had assumed that he was going mad from an acute mental illness. His past self is so broken that it's torture for him to be bombarded by the thoughts of others, and he uses a serum designed by Hank to block out the ceaseless "chatter" in his head. [[spoiler:In order to visit his future self]], Xavier has to go through Wolverine's mind, which is full of traumatic memories; it's a pretty shocking experience for him. Likewise, when he attempts to use Cerebro, all he can sense is people crying out all over the world in loneliness and pain.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Jean Grey loathes being "trapped inside [her] own head" because of her telepathy, and Xavier understands her anguish because he was also haunted by other people's suffering, pain and secrets in the past. When Scott asks Jean, "How do you know what [Alex] felt?", her face is somber when she gloomily replies, "I know how everybody feels." Professor X momentarily stuns Apocalypse on the astral plane by letting his enemy hear the inner voices of hundreds of minds that are within Charles' psychic range.

* Karl from ''Webcomic/FreakAngels'' has taken to wearing a TinfoilHat to block his telepathic link to the rest of the group, because their communications tend to be immature infighting, {{Seinfeldian Conversation}}s, and bragging/complaining about their sex lives, all of which pretty much annoys and/or disgusts him.

* This happens to Buffy in the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Earshot". The problem more arises from being overloaded with hearing people's thoughts, as opposed to being shocked at what people are truly thinking. Though she was surprised to learn that AllMenArePerverts.

** Another one in Martian Manhunter #23 is when J'onn is in his PI alter ego John Jones and he tries to scan Jim Corrigan AKA [[TheDreaded The Spectre.]] While J'onn didn't sense anything amiss when he was talking to Corrigan (while they are bonded they're essentially the same person, they are also very distinctly different), when he tried to do a simple mind scan (I.E. just a quick surface thoughts read, nothing invasive) the image of the spectre putting on his GameFace appeared and J'onn almost had an Aneurysm. Let that be a lesson, if your a telepath with strong mind reading powers, DON'T try to read the mind of a guy who's also the host for the embodiment of God's own wrath.

* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' an anime only character Satori has the power of mind reading. When he visits the Tendo house he tries to prove it by reading [[MoneyFetish Nabiki's]] mind first, but he gets terrified by almost drowning in money. Then he reads [[DirtyOldMan Happosai's]] mind, it's unknown what he saw but he faints with a nosebleed. When he regains consciousness he complains that this family is so weird.
