* Played completely straight in ''Film/BrandUponTheBrain''. Mind you, Guy Maddin plays straight a lot of tropes that nobody else uses now--or [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs ever]].

* On ''{{Daria}},'' the title character is in the hospital for an embarrassing rash, and [[CoolLoser Jane]], trying to [[BadLiar make up an excuse]] for her whereabouts, tells [[DumbBlonde Brittany]] that she has brain fever. ("[[ShapedLikeItself It's a thing that brains get]]," but usually goes away after you read a bestseller.) Ironically the rash turns out to be [[AllergicToLove stress-related]], so it sort of fits this trope itself.

* As mentioned below Live Action TV, this trope hasn't fully disappeared in Asia. A few times in ''FruitsBasket'', Tohru stresses herself out or gets upset and gets sick as a result. It usually plays out as the Sohmas putting her to bed and putting a cold compress over her forehead and her getting better after a good night's rest.

* In ''Eragon'', the first book in the ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'', the title character and his mentor, [[TheObiWan Brom]] enter the city of Teirm under the aliases of Evan and Neal. Brom plays the role of the slighty senile uncle and Eragon comments to a guard that he had a bit too much sun and now has a touch of the brain fever. After they are safely inside the city, Brom comments "A touch of brain fever?" and Eragon replies that he couldn't let him have all the fun.

* Invoked in ''TheAdventuresOfHuckleberryFinn'': Huck is sneaking bread and butter out of the house by hiding it under his hat. When the (melting) butter starts to run down his face ''in front of Aunt Sally'', she starts screaming that he has brain fever, and it's [[{{Squick}} causing his brains to leak out]].

* Although [[{{HPLovecraft}} H.P. Lovecraft]] was more known to have characters GoMadFromTheRevelation, this trope also cropped up occasionally in his work, such as the young artist's suffering in TheCallOfCthulhu (although this, like many of Lovecraft's usages of Brain Fever, is ambiguous in that it ''might'' be the result of trauma, or possible a physical effect of the Great Old One's mental influence.)
