* Dark Eldar from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}'' are all nightmarish hedonists. Every now and then, a Dark Eldar grows weary of the cruelty, the backstabbing (literal and figurative), and the empty hedonistic thrills that make up the average day in Commoragh. Occasionally these Dark Eldar end up embracing life on one of the Craftworlds whose lifestyle is nearly the complete opposite of what Dark Eldar life is like.

There are many causes for insanity. Too many, honestly. However, insanity does have [[SanityHasAdvantages its limits]]; specifically, if you [[{{Cap}} go past 9,999]] you roll over the "insane-o-meter" and go back to being sane. Other characters simply grow bored with being insane and choose to become sane again. [[EpiphanyTherapy So they do.]]

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', this is one of the reasons Zoom [[spoiler:created the persona of Jay Garrick and pretended to be the heroic Flash of Earth 2. The other reason was ForTheEvulz]].

* ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's'' done this multiple times, to the point that the character is often portrayed as [[HollywoodPsych "super sane"]], not being nearly as crazy as everyone else is. Whenever Batman appears to die, in fact. Or once when faced with an EldritchAbomination.

* Seemingly has happened to Johan in ''Manga/{{Monster}}''. He has been a mass murdering psychopath for pretty much all of his life, but he seems to have become pretty nonchalant about all the evil plots and groups that revolve around him and the possibility that he is the AntiChrist. He has seen a vision of TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt several times, and while other characters are either horrified or entranced by this, he has grown weary of it and doesn't regard it as a big deal any more. His suicidal impulses can be traced to boredom with his own sociopathy.

* ''FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops'': In the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' Loops, the looping Chaos Gods aren't a threat because they're bored with Chaos's original emotion-warped insanity and they don't want to do everything again.

* In ''Film/TheCrazyFamily'', after the insanity comes to a head with an [[spoiler:explosion]], the family settles down to have breakfast.
* In ''Film/EvilDead2'', the evil spirit which torments Ash shatters his sanity more than once, forcing him to kill his girlfriend, [[EvilHand sever his own hand]], and leaving him shouting in {{Angrish}} and laughing hysterically in the cabin while a mounted deer head, rocking chair, and even a desk lamp all laugh with him. Once visitors from the outside arrive and start dying, [[UnexplainedRecovery he gets better]], at least enough to be CrazyAwesome.

* Faust of ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. Once a brilliant doctor, until a young girl died on his operating table, then the guilt drove him insane and he became a psychotic serial killer named Dr. Baldhead. One day, he had a vision from the girl saying that her death wasn't his fault and that she was assassinated, so he had a major FreakOut and disappeared. Now, he's back, [[TheAtoner he's sane]], his name is Faust, he wears a paper bag over his head, and he's CrazyAwesome instead of AxCrazy.

Played with in that he's not completely sane and the old bloodlust is still there, just held back by his self-control.

* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': Asuka had gone through huge emotional and psychological trauma during the original timeline (her mother's madness and death; her father's adultery and abandonment; people using her like a doll; her surrogate family and friends hurting her, betraying her or leaving her; constant beatings, humiliations and even a MindRape at the "hands" of alien monsters; the boy she liked treating her as masturbation fodder after spending months clueless to her hints; getting chopped into pieces and eaten alive...) and it had rendered her mad and unstable. Even though she survived the end of the world, she was so broken she decided to kill herself. Then she got sent to the past. She was so thrilled with having a second chance she decided to forget about her mental issues and start from scratch.[[https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/posts/4047455/ In an outdated version of a scene of the second chapter]] She blatantly says she got bored of being crazy.
