* MarkTwain's witty essay/short story ''Punch, Brothers, Punch!'' (also known as "A Literary Nightmare") concerns a tune which the narrator is unable to force from his head, and is unusual in that the killer verse is presented for us in full -- and the nature of the silly little ditty is such that just reading the lyrics really ''is'' enough to get the damn tune [[EarWorm stuck in the reader's head]]! He finally banishes it from his mind [[spoiler:by tricking a friend into getting it stuck in ''his'' head.]]

* In ''FatalFrame II: Crimson Butterfly'': The horror of looking into the Hellish Abyss causes the viewer to become blind. [[spoiler: This happens to Mio in the 'Hellish Abyss' ending, as she looks down while trying to pull Mayu up. The kicker? That's the ''good'' ending (in the original version of the game, anyway).]]

** As another ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' example, Steve Smith gets lost in the desert and meets God, who took the [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith form]] of AngelinaJolie.

** [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-632 SCP-632]] is a species of spider. The combination of the sight of them, the feel of them crawling on your skin and smelling the chemicals they emit will cause baby versions of the spiders ''[[BodyHorror to grow in your brain]]''.

** There's also Rohan Kishibe's Stand, Heaven's Door, which takes effect if anyone looks at his manga (even if it's ''drawn in the air''), turning them into books that he can read and edit to control their memories and actions.

* In ''Literature/TheWarOfTheFlowers'', [[EnigmaticMinion the Remover of Inconvenient Obstacles]] always shrouds himself in shadow when he's using his true form. When he goes out in public, he can turn himself into something slightly more humanoid but that is still so hideous the sight of him can send goblins and trolls running and shrieking in terror. His true form is ''worse''. How much worse? When protagonist Theo gets a brief look at him in bad lighting he's sent reeling, his mind coming up with a variety of squicky metaphors to ''try'' and make sense of what he saw while being unable to do so. What happens if you get a ''good'' look at the Remover? [[spoiler: The last person who did was Erephine Primrose, and she went insane on the spot]]. [[NothingIsScarier Neither of the Remover's forms is ever described in any detail]].
