[[labelnote: Note]]It's worth noting that some later incarnations of the Scooby gang have dealt with real monsters, this episode is explicitly set within an early episode of the original series, featuring the campy, carefree gang.[[/labelnote]]

* In ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' Soujiro goes temporarily insane when he realizes that he did regret killing people despite clinging to the words of his EvilMentor: -> If you're strong you live. If you're weak. you die. It doesn't help that the people he regretted killing were his AbusiveParents or that he'd been a StepfordSmiler so long that every other emotion was completely suppressed until then. To top it all off it was Kenshin's words that caused this. It eventually leads to Soujiro's VillainousBSOD.

* Every so often ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' uses this trope to great (chilling) effect. For example, in the episode entitled "Not Equal" an American Special Ops soldier is reduced to a gibbering, suicidal shell of a man after seeing [[spoiler: the memories of the experiences that aged a young girl into an old womanin the span of 16 years during her time as a prisoner of a paramilitary group.]]

He also snapped after Yamori did a SadisticChoice in front of him where he killed two people after ordering him to choose who would live and would die. He breaks down crying and begs Yamori to kill him instead and later its the torture which led him to become a ruthless AntiHero.]]

** The reason why Sibrand cracked. TheReveal about [[CessationOfExistence the afterlife]] by the Piece of Eden turned Sibrand scared-shitless of death. His fears became even worse when Altair was after him. Everything that wore white and hoddy clothes would be immediatly killed by him, even if they were obviously just scholars and not assassins.

->''"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."''
