* In ''Film/TheVoices'', what happened when, at the insistance of his therapist [[spoiler: and his crush Fiona's disembodied head hallucination]], the hero Jerry eventually took his pills? [[spoiler: He dreamed about dark memories of his childhood during his sleep, then brutally awoke in a disgustingly filthy home (in his altered state of mind, the home looks very bright and clean), and the pets stopped talking. Fiona's head stopped talking too, and now looked like a rotting corpse. Needless to say, Jerry is very freaked by this experience and immediately gets rid of his pills. When he awakes the following morning, things are back in their usual state, to his relief.]]

--> '''Matt Smith''': "Thatís what interests me about the Doctor because, actually, look at the blood on the manís hands. 900 years, countless very selfish choices, and heís literally blown planets up. [[WhereIWasBornAndRazed His own race]], you know, thatís all on his hands. Which is why I think [[StepfordSmiler he has to]] make [[CloudCuckoolander silly jokes]] and [[BowtiesAreCool wear a]] [[NiceHat fez]]. Because if he didnít, [[DespairEventHorizon heíd hang himself]]."

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Much of the cast exhibits various expressions of this trope, both whether for good, evil or something grayer. With all the [[TraumaCongaLine terrible]], [[GoMadFromTheRevelation horrible]] [[EldritchAbomination things]] [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters and people]], most characters need to abandon some part of their sanity just to stay functional. [[spoiler: For example, Guts abandoned [[SociopathicHero much of his empathy]] to pursue his RoaringRampageOfRevenge regardless of civilian casualties ([[SuperpoweredEvilSide though that brought other problems]]) and Casca regressed to [[CuteMute an infantile state]] to deal with [[{{Satan}} Femto]] [[RapeAsDrama raping her]].]] The CrapsackWorld of Midland is ''just that bad''.

* When Wrestling/MickieJames first started feuding with [[Wrestling/LisaMarieVaron Victoria]], it was because Mickie was crazy, crazy enough to keep coming back after defeats, to blindly charge her larger opponent even when Victoria was armed with bat. While Mickie did realize she was crazy and try to reign herself in Victoria was so tired of losing she tried to make herself crazy in hopes it would allow her to beat Mickie again.[[/folder]]

** Some interpretations of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker depict him as "super-sane" rather than crazy: he sees how ridiculous and mixed-up the world is, and the only way for him to deal with it is by treating it as one big joke.

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} may be a case of this. An optional dialogue in ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance'', though of questionable canon, goes as follows:

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Hawke with a [[StepfordSnarker sarcastic personality]] often comes across as this, having become a StepfordSmiler and SadClown in response to all the craziness in Kirkwall and personal tragedies they've suffered over the course of the game.
* ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', this is a valid interpretation for a Sith Inquisitor, who is "differently rational" even under the best of circumstances. Doubly so for a ''Light Side'' Inquisitor, who is trying not to replicate the AxCrazy mentality that counts as "normal" for a Sith.

Often a staple of wartime environments and the resultant BlackComedy which often transpires, where the psychological demands of having to deal with death and suffering on a daily basis requires pretty extreme measures to retain one's grip on reality. Compare BoredWithInsanity, and SafetyInIndifference, which is another popular coping mechanism for the same predicament. Contrast with the so-called "[[MortonsFork Catch 22]]" situation, where going crazy is conclusive evidence that you're sane enough to stay on the job.
