* ''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.
