There is a medical condition frequently attributed to conspiracy theorists: apophenia, "[[ThereAreNoCoincidences the tendency to see connections where none exist]]" ([[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited thank you,]] [[ComicBook/TheQuestion Question]]). But that's only what TheMan and his crony doctors will have you believe. And as AgentMulder would say: [[ProperlyParanoid just because you're paranoid doesn't mean They're not out to get you]].

* ComicBook/TheQuestion from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. "There was a magic bullet! It was forged by Illuminati mystics to prevent us from learning the truth!" However he is also played oddly positively for a conspiracy theorist as while his tendency to connect everything to a single overarching conspiracy (supposedly dating back at least to AncientEgypt, and [[AncientConspiracy secretly controlling the world ever since]]) is shown to be insane it also allows him to see the connections to the real conspiracies. He's even called the League's "Data Guy" and is a case of someone being a ProperlyParanoid CrazyAwesome. To the point that Batman of all people calls him uptight. The rest of the JL can only give Batman dropped jaws. Also, the tips at the end of shoelaces are called [[WhatTheHeckIsAnAglet aglets]]. Their true purpose is ''SINISTER''.

* Also from one episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. He spends $150,000 of taxpayer money to discover why his plants absorb the water he pours them.

* ''Literature/TheDevilsDictionary'': Bierce satirizes some views of these with the entry on "Freemasons":
-->An order with secret rites, grotesque ceremonies and fantastic costumes, which, originating in the reign of Charles II, among working artisans of London, has been joined successively by the dead of past centuries in unbroken retrogression until now it embraces all the generations of man on the hither side of Adam and is drumming up distinguished recruits among the pre-Creational inhabitants of Chaos and Formless Void. The order was founded at different times by Charlemagne, Julius Caesar, Cyrus, Solomon, Zoroaster, Confucius, Thothmes, and Buddha. Its emblems and symbols have been found in the Catacombs of Paris and Rome, on the stones of the Parthenon and the Chinese Great Wall, among the temples of Karnak and Palmyra and in the Egyptian Pyramids always by a Freemason.

* In ''Series/FirstWave'', "Crazy Eddie" is a well-known crackpot conspiracy theorist, who publishes an online journal called ''Paranoids Times''. During his first meeting with Cade, he insists that Lincoln was killed with a sword (which he has) and that the CIA has developed a compound that is capable of quickly dissolving a dead body. By the end of the episode, he finally accepts the truth aliens are real, they're here, and they're preparing for an invasion. Of course, the show's premise is straight out of a conspiracy nut's repertoire: hostile AliensAmongUs, predicted by secret quatrains of Nostradamus. This conspiracy theory happens to be true in-universe, but, of course, most disbelieve Eddie anyway.

* ''[[MatthewReilly Area 7]]'' opens with an article from "The Conspiracy Theorist Monthly" (circulation: 157 copies) connecting a senator's death by hunting accident with the deaths of his wife and daughter by gas explosion. [[spoiler:There's actually a ''bigger'' conspiracy going on than the writer knows...]]

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': The Denmark segment of the prologue has one pointing out the fact that nothing is known of the PatientZero group, and uses this as a basis for suspecting an ApocalypticGagOrder about the disease's seriousness. She turns out to be right in the following segment, that has an official newcast admit what she suspected two day earlier.

** He reappears in Book II. During the height of Discord's rampage across Equestria, he hacks into a radio broadcast to tell everyone listening that Discord is actually Celestia's ex-boyfriend, and Selena is her child by Discord's bat-pony half-brother. He then goes on a rant about how he's not going to let all the facts that contradict him stop him from spreading the "truth". And then Vinyl shows up and knocks him out again.
