* The trope works even nowadays: read the "Spiegel" interview with German politics legend [[note]]if you don't know him - he was the one [[MoralGuardians responsible]] for taking WesternAnimation/PorkyPig down on German Television 1973 for "too much violence"...oh the irony! Later his own party introduced Private TV in Germany, making Porky Pig look like Ghandi in comparison...[[/note]] Heiner Geißler taken just before his death. He confesses to have lost faith in God bit by bit for the standard theodizee reasons.

* Zelda is shown going through this during the "Slumbering Power" memory in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' [[spoiler:due to her inability to access her RoyaltySuperPower despite her constant efforts, fully aware that failure to do so before Calamity Ganon's return would (and ultimately did) result in untold death and destruction.]]

* ''Series/{{Medici}}'' may as well be called "Crisis of Faith: the Series." Cosimo struggles mightily with his guilt, morals and his personal identity in conflict with his family's needs.

* Victoria suffers from this following the siege of Adamant Fortress in ''[[Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird]]''. Being a devout Andrastian who has up to this point fully embraced her role as the Herald of Andraste, she's deeply shaken to learn that [[spoiler:it was nothing more than a cosmic accident, and that the god she's always revered may really not exist at all]]. It takes a lot of effort by those to whom she's closest to help her get out of it.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1755_Lisbon_earthquake 1755 Lisbon]] was possibly the [[ShiningCity most splendorous city in the world]], having spent centuries funnelling their colonial wealth into majestic palaces, gold-laden churches and gigantic art collections. On November 1st (All Saints Feast, one of the main Catholic holy days), the city was struck by one of the [[EarthquakesCauseFissures deadliest earthquake in history]]. The [[HouseFire subsequent fires]] created massive firestorms, but the fires downtown were short-lived since a [[GiantWallOfWateryDoom tsunami]] put them out (the rest kept burning for five days). [[MonumentalDamage Palaces and churches alike fell along with 85% of the city]], the surviving 15% being basically {{TheCityNarrows}} and the {{RedLightDistrict}}...
Not only Portugal but all of Europe went into a near religious panic: for all they knew [[BoltOfDivineRetribution God had punished]] the [[HolierThanThou most pious people]] among one of the [[TheFundamentalist most religious nations in Europe]] while sparing the sinners, and the King himself only survived because he decided not to attend mass.
