* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' -- Buzz Lightyear ends up doing this after discovering he is indeed only a toy and not an Space Ranger as he previously believed. He snaps out of it later, though.

* There's a Transformers fanfic out there that has the Seacons slowing losing their minds as they investigate the ancient wreck of a crashed spaceship, finding dead Quintessons that are described accurately, but with the kind of disgust usually reserved for shoggoths, and the ultimate revelation that Unicron exists and being a mind-breaker for even the normally cold and under-control Snaptrap.

* ''Inverted" in the ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' episode "Dale to the Chief". Dale Gribble is a noted conspiracy freak, believing in everything from aliens to army experimentation. While reading the [[WhoShotJFK Warren Commmission report]] to Joseph, he ignored a crucial detail, and goes crazy when he concludes the Warren Commission was credible. The thought of the government being correct sends him into a daze. After encountering a genial police officer, he trades his paranoia with insufferable patriotism.

* WebOriginal/JonTron has this gem from his review of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII "Final Hallway XIII"]]: "I ''thought'' I was playing the game Jon... [[OhCrap But I've been using the wrong controller this whole time...]] The game's playing itself Jon! The game's playing itself Jon!!! THE GAME'S JUST PLAYING ITSELF JON!!!"
** He also didn't take the reveal of Conker being a useable asset in VideoGame/ProjectSpark very well if "CONKER IS TOTALLY BACK GUYS" is anything to go by...

Compare with BrainBleach, BrainFever, and MyGodWhatHaveIDone. See also AFormYouAreComfortableWith for a way to avoid this. Often goes hand-in-hand with the DespairEventHorizon, to the point where a number of examples on this page can be found on the other as well.

* In the first season finale of ''Series/{{Preacher 2016}}'', this happens to pretty much the ''entire town of Annville''. The shocking revelation that [[spoiler: God is real but has abandoned Heaven]], pushes most folks past the DespairEventHorizon, with some indulging in raging hedonism, others turning suicidal, and others becoming homicidal -- [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Quincannon]] in particular seems to suffer an outright break from reality. [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Emily]] is the only person shown not to be overly affected, but it's possible she's just become a StepfordSmiler to try and cope.

** Sargeras the Burning Titan went mad when he discovered that [[spoiler:the Void Lords could corrupt the unborn Titan world-souls within planets. His entire omnicidal campaign is an attempt to deprive the Void Lords of any possible foothold in the universe. Azeroth is a priority target because it holds the last world-soul within it.]]

* The Black Spiral Dancers from ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' get their name because every last one of them walked the Black Spiral, an equally metaphorical and literal path that brought them face-to-face with the Wyrm, a cosmic embodiment of suffering and hatred. The experience breaks the minds of all but the most strong-willed like a twig; most Black Spiral Dancers take their deed name after whatever pathetic growls or mewling noises come out of their mouth upon "revelation."
** Similarly, the Weaver, originally a cosmic embodiment of order and purpose, was turned into an all-consuming force for stasis when it tried to define the Wyld (a cosmic embodiment of primal chaos) and got the biggest "DOES NOT COMPUTE" in history.
