* ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'': The prisoners on La Dolorosa are imprisoned in solitary confinement, often for years. Most are driven insane over the years, with behavior ranging from talking to themselves or people who aren't there and terrible self-harm. Phedra also begins to experience it during her stay there.

* Arthur in ''Literature/AlongTheWindingRoad''. While he is reasonable coherent, he quickly trails off into rambles and forgets any number of things he's trying to do. He also has severe insomnia, which is apparently spurred on by [[HearingVoices ghosts]].

* ''Manga/ElfenLied'': Subverted by [[spoiler: Mariko Kurama]]. She was immobilized in a giant containment unit soon after she was born and stayed there for 8 years, with her only contact with the outside world being a lab assistant speaking to her via an intercom. She isn't exactly a poster child for mental health, being a [[KidsAreCruel sadistic brat]], but she eventually reveals herself to be far more bitter than crazy. And realistically, [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality she should barely be able to talk, much less function on her own.]]

* Almost happens to ''Anime/{{Cyborg 009}}'' in an episode of the 2001 series, when he spends a whole episode stuck in his SuperSpeed mode. What feels as mere seconds for the others, is for him ''several days'' spent unable to interact with anyone since he moves so fast that no one can see/hear/etc. him, and he can't touch them either as the smallest touch could [[KillItWithFire set anything ablaze]]. It truly is an AndIMustScream situation, and he almost crosses the DespairEventHorizon.

* [[spoiler:Element Lad]] of the ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} spent billions of years as the only being in the universe after being flung outside time and space in ''Legion Lost''. He was driven very much insane as a result, although there was also some ShowingOffThePerilousPowerSource involved. It took him weeks to even remember his former friends when they were brought to his attention.

* Appa Ali Apsa, also known as the Old Timer, was once one of the [[GreenLantern Guardians of the Universe]]; in fact, he was the last Guardian to remain behind when the others departed for another dimension. Unfortunately, being left alone on Oa was not conducive to his continued sanity. He now had all the power of Oa too.

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': In the beginning of chapter 12 Shinji and Asuka [[spoiler:have been detained and shoved into separate cells.]] As he waited, pondering that it was driving him crazy being locked in that place with no way to know how long had passed and what had happened to Asuka, Shinji reflected on those cells -small, nearly empty, almost completely dark- were especifically built to drive someone crazy due to the feeling of isolation among other things.

* In ''Film/JurassicWorld'', ''Velociraptor''-trainer Owen immediately suspects that this is one of the ''I. rex's'' major problems. Any animal will become psychologically damaged if they're never socialized with humans or other animals, and the ''I. rex'' has spent her entire life confined to a paddock that's far too small for her massive size. The only positive relationship the ''I. rex'' has is with the crane that brings her food; she even ate her own sibling. [[spoiler: We later learn that this was part of Hoskins' and Wu's plan all along to create the perfect LivingWeapon.]]

-->'''Claire:''' Your raptors were born in captivity.
-->'''Owen:''' With siblings, they learn social skills and [[{{Imprinting}} I imprint on them]] when they're born. There's trust.

** A similar circumstance happens with the Q known as Quinn. He keeps trying to kill himself because as an immortal and omniscient being, he's done everything, seen everything, and knows everything. It's the isolation from anything new that's driven him insane.
