* ComicBook/ScottPilgrim's worst enemy Gideon Graves specializes in this. Scott's own Room is a desert.

* ComicBook/ScottPilgrim's worst enemy BigBad Gideon Gordon Graves specializes ''weaponizes'' this through ''The Glow.'' Used as psychological warfare, anyone inflicted has their heads glowing and those who can travel Subspace can enter these domains. The affected have their memories tainted and distorted while their vices are amplified to self-destructive tendencies. For example, when Ramona's head glows, it's a sign of her currently troubled state. Scott later ends up infected by it and could actually be the origin of [[spoiler: the Negascott.]]
** We see Ramona's where a subconscious version of her is seen
in this. a rather skimpy outfit, fawning over a subconscious construct of Gideon, showing the subconscious influence he has over her.
** While a variation,
Scott's own Room mindscape represents a desert and appears to symbolize his feelings of despair and loneliness as seen in the beginning (he is still recovering from a desert.bad breakup and showing he's in an emotionally unstable state.)

* In the final episode of ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'', Max seriously overstrains her time travel powers and passes out. She spends an extended period of time wandering through a nightmare world, bombarded by all her worst fears and insecurities: [[spoiler: that she's using her rewind to make people like her and doesn't actually care, that the tornado might be her fault, that she's too dull for Chloe, that basically all the guys she knows are possible threats...]]

In movies, entering the Room is often shown with a MadnessMontage. Compare Room101 for the non-metaphysical version with all the same effects. Not to be confused with a DebugRoom, or the [[MinusWorld Black Room of Death]] in ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''. See also PsychologicalTormentZone.

The opposite of the HappyPlace and the darkest corner of the MentalWorld, the Black Bug Room is the place inside a person's head where all of his or her negative feelings dwell and fester. A person's consciousness may get sent there when his or her mind breaks under the strain, or other characters may end up there by taking a wrong turn during a JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind.

* ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}} 2'' features this near the end of the game, when Nowe travels into Manah's mind to save her from a HeroicBSOD. It's freaky enough to begin with, what with the series of empty doorframes, and having to chase around the constantly teleporting CreepyChild. And then you have to fight a goddamn army of red-eyed black-and-red-silhouette ''things''. And they keep coming. And then during the second stage, the background becomes row upon row of these things, just watching you.
