* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' adds another layer of horror to this with the Black Samurai. She travels around the land, freely giving away books that eventually render all humans who read them mad, and the insanity eventually melts their minds, reducing them to demons. [[spoiler:It wouldn't be so bad if it was ''only'' a TomeOfEldritchLore. But, as it happens, it's just ''literature''. The people of East Mikado have had their beliefs in social inequality so blasted into their minds, the revelation that things ''can'' be different is so ''alien'' and ''terrifying'', they. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Just. Can't. Handle. It.]]]]

* The original civilization on Easter Island. The most popular theory is that deforestation caused the collapse of their society: over logging, local climate shifts, or a widespread plant virus are working hypothesis. Regardless of the cause, the destruction caused widespread ecological damage that obliterated island's advanced standard of living. The madness in this case, was when the islanders discovered their gods were impotent lies and their leaders were not a chosen people. What followed was pure utter madness and chaos: wars, genocide, cannibalism, loss of technology, and abandonment of culture. When European explorers "discovered" the islands generations later, Easter Island was a mere shadow of it's former self, forever unable to resurrect its former glory. While slaver traders and foreign diseases brought the final death knell, the island had reached a forgone conclusion.

The madness in this case, was when the islanders discovered their gods were impotent lies and their leaders were not a chosen people.

* In ''Videogame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' there are scholars who have tried to understand what [[SatanicArchetype Gaunter O'Dimm]] really is. In O'Dimm's own words, the ones who did are either dead or have gone entirely mad. The one living researcher that Geralt can find who knows the most about O'Dimm is unhinged and near-suicidal, having spent the last year hiding in a magic circle that's supposed to protect him from O'Dimm. [[spoiler: The moment he falls out of the circle, he dies.]] Geralt can also ask O'Dimm what he is straight to his face, but Gaunter will not tell him, mostly because [[PragmaticVillainy he still needs Geralt sane and useful]].
