* On ''AllyMcBeal'', Billy started out as the straight man of the cast. Later, he suddenly dyed his hair blonde, and turned into a sexist, smug jerk (with an occasional flash of remorse). This was later explained as a brain tumor, which killed him.

* Ryan on the US ''TheOffice'' in the season 5. After years of working at the surreal Dunder Mifflin, constant sexual harassment from Michael Scott, the horror of actually having a relationship with the vapid Kelly, getting promoted during a recession, getting addicted to cocaine (TruthInTelevision - it turns you into an asshole), running a massive fraud, and getting busted and fired, then starting all over again as a temp at Dunder Miflin, Ryan now carries a notebook filled with the names of people who piss him off. So he can "get back on them once I'm on the top again".
* In the last season of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'', [[spoiler:Felix Gaeta]] loses it big time after [[spoiler:fellow BridgeBunny Dee shoots herself dead, being unable to cope with the consequences of the latest WhamEpisode.]] It had actually been [[BreakTheCutie building for some time]], but the change in his demeanor and attitude after this particular incident was quite drastic. Getting [[spoiler:shot in the leg by Anders and then losing said leg]] didn't help much either, nor did finding out that [[spoiler:the afforementioned Anders and the XO are Cylons]] and discovering that [[spoiler:as he half-suspected but was in denial about, he was involved in the deaths of several innocent people on New Caprica thanks to Cylon treachery]]. And [[spoiler: He was nearly airlocked as a Cylon collaborator... And half the people who were about to kill him turned out to ''be'' Cylons.]] That can't be good for the sanity.
* Buck Compton from ''BandOfBrothers'' showed signs of a HeroicBSOD after he got shot in the Netherlands, then he finally freaked out after seeing two of his friends get hit with artillery fire near Foy.
