* In ''[[Literature/LineOfDelirium Emperors of Illusions]]'', this is the goal of the protagonists, as far as TheEmperor is concerned. They have nothing against him personally (except for Kay, whose home planet was destroyed at the Emperor's order), but [[spoiler:a CorruptCorporateExecutive thinks that the Emperor created this universe and wishes to pay him back for that by destroying humankind]], so they decide to get rid of the Emperor. However, since ResurrectiveImmortality exists in this universe, the Emperor cannot be killed permanently. Their plan is to cause him to lose his mind in a way that is irreversible. [[spoiler:It nearly works, but the final trigger phrase fails because the Emperor is not the creator of the world, resulting in an Empire-wide manhunt for the conspirators]].

** In the Series 9 finale three-parter, the Twelfth Doctor is driven to madness by a TraumaCongaLine: betrayal and capture by both [[spoiler: Ashildr and the Time Lords]], his companion Clara being [[spoiler: Killed Off for Real]], and ColdBloodedTorture at the hands of the latter betrayer, with absolutely no one around to help him through his agony. The result is that he becomes a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds who almost destroys ''Time itself'' in the pursuit of a TragicDream. He is ultimately pulled back across the DespairEventHorizon, but most endure the losses of [[spoiler: his homeworld and people (for now), possibly his confidante Ohila, Clara ''and'' his key personal/emotional memories of her]] in the process of returning to his best self.

* The Skeksis render their captives near-mindless servants and steal their living essence by exposing them to Film/TheDarkCrystal.
* In the Creator/RogerCorman directed VincentPrice film ''Pit and the Pendulum'' (bearing loose resemblance to the EdgarAllanPoe story it is based on), this is the goal of Nicholas Medina's tormentors. It [[GoneHorriblyRight goes horribly right]].

* In ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'', V kills every Norsefire employee who'd once worked at the concentration camp where he'd been imprisoned. Every employee, that is, except for Lewis Prothero, who as the camp commander had selected him, among other prisoners, to be subjects of medical experimentation. Because said experimentation drove V mad, [[PayEvilUntoEvil he drives Prothero mad]] by kidnapping him, sticking him in a replica of the camp, and cremating his beloved rare doll collection before his eyes.

* In {{Euripides}}'s tragedy, ''Theatre/{{Bacchae}}'', the [[Myth/ClassicalMythology god Dionysus]] drives his aunts --and many of the women of Thebes-- mad because they dishonored his mother and refused to acknowledge his divinity. The play ends with [[DownerEnding tragic results]].
