* ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'':
** The plot is driven by a mutual example of this trope, affecting both TheHero and the BigBad. After all, if coming into contact with an otherwordly existence causes insanity, why wouldn't [[InvertedTrope an Eldritch Abomination go insane after encountering a human]]? The main character Kyousuke has a literally irresistible case of ChronicHeroSyndrome, while [[spoiler:the White Queen fell in love with him at first sight, then became a murderous {{Yandere}} after he rejected her]].
** A temporary example occurs whenever someone loses a [[SummonMagic summoning battle]]. The losers experience a shock equal to seeing the death of one's god (which, given that [[PhysicalGod actual gods]] can be summoned in this series, can be literally the case). They lose any ability to take independent action for 24 hours, and will follow any orders given to them by someone else. Even if that order is to throw themselves off a cliff...
** A permanent and more traditional example occurs whenever the [[EldritchAbomination Black Maw that Swallows All]] is summoned. It devours its own summoner, then leaves its vessel (the person who is possessed by the summoned entity during a summoning ceremony). The vessel is left physically unharmed by the experience, but their mind will be completely and utterly gone.

* Astrid Mueller of ''ComicBook/CleanRoom'' has gathered a body of knowledge about the demons threatening the world, their past interactions with humanity, and their plans. Promotion in the Mueller Organization earns access to larger parts of this knowledge. It's relatively common for the promoted to commit suicide in bizarre ways from the sheer horror.

** ''TabletopGame/CthulhuTech'', on the other hand, plays with this. Reading arcane texts, for example, can slowly drive you over the brink, as you'd expect exposure to the Necronomicon would. So does exposure to god-like aliens or their avatars or anything else that every natural law is struggling against. Realizing that the [[BodyHorror Doahanoids]] you [[ShootTheDog vaporized with a charge cannon]] ''weren't'' isn't good for your grip on reality, either. However, since the JapaneseMediaTropes the game adds to the Mythos call for a certain level of idealism, society at large is [[GenreSavvy entirely aware of these effects]], and [[ThereAreNoTherapists There Are Therapists]] to reduce or eliminate the dementia characters gain.
