* The origin of the ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'' villain Mister 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 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.

* A frequently discussed trope on ''Series/{{Survivorman}}''. Les always brought his harmonica with him when he was going to film an episode because being able to play music gave him something to concentrate on, especially whenever conditions forced him to hole up somewhere and prevented him from being able to look for food or head to the extraction area, which he stated was an important thing in a real survival situation.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', if you save rescuing Liara for last, you'll find that she has gone half mad from spending so much time in a bubble. She'll refuse to believe that you aren't a hallucination until you physically drag her to safety. She recovers pretty quickly, though.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' episode "The Box", Miss Finster puts TJ in the eponymous box, which is just a chalk square drawn on the playground. The isolation (no-one is allowed to talk to him when he's in the box) leaves him singing "How Much is That Doggie in The Window" as a MadnessMantra, and when he comes out he's not only [[ScareEmStraight scared straight]], but has a profound phobia of squares. His friends arrange for him to go back into the box as exposure therapy, and this time a kickball bounces over the lines, at which point he realises he's not really trapped at all, and [[StatusQuoIsGod everything goes back to normal]].\

** The Daleks, especially in their debut appearance. Richard Martin, the director of the first Dalek story, had an idea that they were all insane from isolation and claustrophobia inside their metal shells, and this is why they are always bellowing "EXTERMINATE!" at everything.
