* [[RobotBuddy BEN]] from Disney's ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' is a subversion; While he claims that the reason he's so loopy is from spending hundreds of years alone on the title planet, the truth is his memory chip was removed, so his brain really ''is'' broken. [[spoiler: Once he gets it back, this aspect of his personality tones down.]]

* During the three year TimeSkip between seasons four and five of ''{{Series/Merlin}}'', [[BigBad Morgana]] and [[TheCutie Aithusa]] were locked at the bottom of a well without sun for two years. Morgana has gone [[VillainousBreakdown way off the deep end]], and Aithusa has gone from a cute, helpful little dragon to an emaciated shell incapable of speech.
* In an episode of ''MyNameIsEarl'', Earl is trying to repay the government tax money he didn't pay (that they wouldn't accept) by doing some work. He spots a ChainGang and asks the guard if he can join. The guard agrees, and Earl is happily working on the side of the road. Problem is, while his back was turned, the guards changed shifts, and the new guard had no idea Earl wasn't a prisoner. (It didn't help that Earl was wearing the same kind of jeans and white T-shirt the prisoners were wearing.) When Earl tries to explain that he isn't supposed to be imprisoned, the guard takes that as having an attitude problem and throws him in solitary. As Earl puts it:

* The origin of the ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'' villain Mister Nobody is that he was injected with a powerful anaesthetic and left in a WhiteVoidRoom for three days, resulting in a combination of this trope and EnlightenmentSuperpowers.

* The origin of the ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'' villain Mister Nobody Nobody, originally a criminal and former member of the Brotherhood of Evil named Mr Neumann, is that he was injected with a powerful anaesthetic and left in a WhiteVoidRoom for three days, as part of an experiment by an ex-nazi scientist hiding in Argentina. The room was spherical, resulting in a combination of this trope the illusion that Neumann was suspended in an endless white void, and with absolutely no external stimuli other than sight, Neumann went insane in less than a day. Three days passed, which seemed like eternities to him, until finally he saw a dot appear in the whiteness, causing him to latch onto the dot as his only anchor to reality. Finally, the existential fear caused by the dot erased Neumann from existance, and he was reborn as Mr Nobody, complete with EnlightenmentSuperpowers.
