** [[FromBadToWorse It got worse for them.]] The school in question had a philosophy based on rational numbers, and that everything in the world could be described via some sort of fraction. The golden ratio (1:1.6180339887....) was paramount to this philosophy, as being a mathematical symbol of beauty. Upon their discovery of the irrational numbers, and the fact that the existence of those numbers as a whole [[LogicBomb directly violated the school's philosophy]], the school of Pythagoras learned that [[AwfulTruth the golden ratio they loved so much]] [[OhCrap was an irrational number as well.]] It's hard to imagine a mathematical construct becoming a BrokenPedestal, but it certainly became one to them. To say that the school of Pythagoras [[VillainousBreakdown didn't take that information well]] was an {{Understatement}}, and at least one [[http://nrich.maths.org/2671 legend]] got started of a man who decided to tell and was KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade.

* In Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} story ''Comicbook/DemonSpawn'' Nightflame steals the titular heroine's soul and carries it to a hellish place inhabited by legions of horrible demons called the Innerverse. Then Nightflame reveals that world and its demons are a manifestation of Kara's own evil. As Kara faces a cyclopean, wrinkled demon, she doesn't want to believe it.
-->'''Nightflame:''' Peer into your soul, Supergirl, and see what you have never faced... your own evil!\\
'''Supergirl:''' Wha-? This... This thing exists within my own body! No, it can't be! Nothing as evil as all this could be part of me!\\
'''Nightflame:''' Yes, it is part of you... and of all mortals.
