* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': A downplayed version of a cathood delusion seems to be an element of Lalli's AmbiguousDisorder. He's perfectly aware that he's human, but has a lot of cat-like habits such as sitting on his haunches, sleeping in strange places (and doing so in the daytime due to being used to working at night), scratching doors instead of knocking at them and hissing at human beings that disturb him too much. He's also of very solitary nature, has limited tolerance for other people touching him and his hostile to cats he runs into. Unsurprizingly, his luonto eventually turned out to be an Eurasian lynx, which may offer a partial explanation. The explanation is really partial as while the two other mages of the story have personality traits that are typically associated with their respective spirit animal equivalents, these traits stay within the range of acceptable human behaviour.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has a decidedly non-funny example in Biter. A [[WildChild feral child]] raised to fight dogs in a pit, Biter sniffs people as they walk by him, kills his enemies with his (filed) teeth, and eats his victims after the fact. He's also utterly loyal to Rorge, the man who made him into what he is.

* Zigzagged in the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoon "Hare Brush"; Elmer Fudd, a millionaire, thinks he's a rabbit. He gets put in a mental institution, where he escapes, leaving WesternAnimation/BugsBunny in his place. The psychiatrists promptly ignore Bugs' insistence that he really is a real rabbit and use hypno-therapy to convince him that ''he'' is "Elmer J. Fudd, millionaire. I own a mansion and a yacht." The real zagging comes at the end, where it turns out Elmer was faking insanity; he's being investigated by the IRS for tax evasion, a fate that ultimately befalls Bugs.
