* In Tad Williams's ''MemorySorrowAndThorn'' trilogy, we have ''Du Svardenvyrd'', the Wyrd of the Swords. The man who wrote it was insane, and the first person to encounter it immediately committed suicide. Only one other person's response is shown, and he went from being the best and brightest of a circle of wise, learned men to being a wandering thief and alcoholic, unable to commit suicide, but unable to live with what he'd read.

*Ringo's mindsight turns out to function this way in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. Any genuine telepath (John is not one) who taps into Ringo while he's using mindsight will instantly become addicted to it, and unless he's heavily shielded, he'll also get the mental equivalent of a bad sunburn.
**And don't think the mindsight isn't having a comparable addictive effect on Ringo—hence his extreme BlessedWithSuck.

** Yawning is not only contagious ''within'' species other than humans (i.e. between dogs), but even ''interspecially'', at least between species of higher (social) intelligence. It has at least been scientifically [[http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0071365 proven]] to happen between humans and dogs. Anecdotally, people with other pets, like cats, will often have noted this too.

* Lampooned in one series of ''{{Nodwick}}'' strips, the EvilSorceress She Who Must Be Obeyed has obtained a written copy of That Which Man Is Not Meant to Know, and she is smart enough not to read it, because she realizes that this Trope must apply if no-one is meant to know it. However, after taking the heroes prisoner, [[spoiler:Piffany assures her that only ''men'' are not meant to know it; women can safely read it, because it's something that they know already. When she reads it, not revealing it to the readers, the fact that such a secret would be so devastating to men almost makes her bust a gut laughing.]]

* Humorously parodied in ''Series/TimAndEricAwesomeShowGreatJob'' with the "iJammer," which in-universe MegaCorp Cinco markets as "the first digital music box with two revolutionary dance tones!" Anyone who listens to either of the frequencies from the box--either "iJammer" or "e-Bumper"--suffers from seizures, wildly aggressive behavior, widened eyes, and general addiction. The box also produces an "OOPY DOOPY!" protein paste called "Oh Hungee," which seems designed to hook listeners even more, as they don't need to stop to eat. The kicker? The iJammer is manufactured by Cinco ''Toys''--meaning it's aimed at ''children.''
