* Viciously deconstructed in ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine''. Walker is bound and determined to help out in Dubai no matter what, but when he's given undeniable proof that his presence is causing more harm than good in the form of [[spoiler: the white phosphorous incident, where he accidentally kills civilians with white phosphorous mortars]], his Heroic Safe Mode activates and [[spoiler: he begins imagining a perceived BigBad Konrad (who's long dead at this point) taunting him through a broken radio and giving him the perfect scapegoat to place the blame for all his failures on as he keeps going. Then things get much, ''much'' worse.]]

* In ''Literature/{{Twig}}'', Sylvester displays two separate versions of this when his mind collapses under stress and trauma from the PsychoSerum he uses to give himself an edge, hallucinating versions of his friends who guide him (which ultimately fails, as they're ultimately just Sy talking to himself) and his enemies who taunt him and force him to drive others away so he can't hurt them.

* ''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'' reveals that Data has a literal Heroic Safe Mode. When in specific failure modes, his ethical subroutines take over control, leaving him in a state where the difference between right and wrong is the only thing he is capable of acting on. If damaged into such a state when witnessing something his ethical routines consider wholly wrong, he can become almost berserker-like.
* And in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' he has acquired the ability to toggle his emotion chip, keeping him from freaking out in combat the way he did in ''Film/StarTrekGenerations''.
