* [[Manga/MobPsycho100 Mob]] has been in safe mode since before the series started after being knocked out by bullies caused an eruption of his powers that not only injured them, [[MyGod
WhatHaveIDone but his little brother as well]]. He's usually a dull and unassuming person, but his emotions still build under the surface until they explode outward. This is acknowledged by the narrative as a complex.

* [[ActionGirl Sarah Connor]], in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', spends a good chunk of the movie this way, after the events of the [[Film/TheTerminator first film]]. It's only after [[spoiler:she [[MyLord HelixWhatHaveIDone nearly kills an innocent man in front of his wife and son]]]] that she snaps out of it and lets herself feel like a normal person again.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'': Lightning has been in this mode ever since her parents died (which is also when she started to [[MeaningfulRename call herself Lightning]]). She instructs Hope on how to enter Heroic Safe Mode to help him cope with his trauma:
-->'''Lightning:''' Think of it like a strategy. Focus on your ultimate goal and shut out everything else. Still your mind. Move on instinct. Let doubt take over, and despair will cripple you.

** Imperial Guard-[cough]-Astra Militarum HeroUnit Commissar Yarrick fought an entire battle after losing his right arm below the elbow. Once it was over, he "allowed himself the luxury of passing out" (read: promptly fainted).

* Becomes an entirely new game mechanic in disc 3 of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasIX'' when Garnet, overwhelmed entirely by, within the course of a few weeks, [[spoiler:learning that she was adopted, witnessing the death of her mother, and seeing her entire kingdom completely wrecked before she can even assume the throne]] completely shuts down on an emotional level, losing the ability to speak. Yet she remains usable in battle, but can no longer use the game's limit break and has a 1/3 chance to fail to follow commands due to an inability to "concentrate". She recovers both her voice and her combat usefulness following a "[[Heroic BSOD]]" moment that forces her to confront her issues, and overcome them for the sake of protecting Eiko from sharing one of her greatest misfortunes. Zidane has a similar meltdown later on, but his reaction is... different.
