* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', this is where every single bad emotion is stored in Guts' mind, especially all of the horrifying memories of the Eclipse. When [[EnemyWithin the Beast]] isn't directly exerting pressure on Guts, that's where it sleeps.

* The titular [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier Winter Soldier's]] mind looks a lot like this, in the horrific flashback sequence we see. One highlight: having his arm amputated without anesthesia.

->''"It doesn't kill you. What it does is make you feel like you're in a noisy little dark room ... naked and ashamed ... and there are things in the dark that need to hurt you because you're bad ... little pinching things that go in your ears and crawl on the inside of your skull. And you know that if the noise and the crawling would stop ... that you could remember how to get out... But you never will."''

** ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'' has a similar example known as the Harrowing, which occurs when a wraith is discorporated (takes enough damage to lose coherency). It's as much a struggle against one's own personal nightmares as a fight against some of the more insidious influences of [[EldritchAbomination Oblivion]].

* Most of Lucy's interior monologue and reasoning in ''Manga/ElfenLied'' takes place in an incredibly large black void. Could count as a Black Bug Room given that her reasoning is mostly governed by her murderous insticts and tortured past, so she sees the room as a spaces where humans remind her that she is pathetic and doesn't belong in their world, with her diclonius instinct sweetly promising that everything will be better is she just kills every last motherfucker in sight.
