* Mentioned in, of all places, ''Literature/JudgeDee'', when the judge suspects this may be the explanation for a middle-aged man's conduct, explaining that such men have a moment in their lives where they end up harming what they'd spent their lives building up, then snap out of it and laugh it off.

* In ''Series/RedDwarf'', Kryten experiences one of these. Kryten is a service mechanoid who has existed for approximately three million years. Turns out his series is built to last six million years. As a result, Kryten starts wondering if he could have done more with his existence, and he later upgrades his chasis to a goofy-looking "sporty" model. If a mechanoid mid-life crisis isn't absurd enough, later in the episode [[spoiler: the crew discover that [[GeniusLoci the universe itself is sentient]] and Kryten accidentally gives ''it'' a mid-life crisis]].

** The A-Plot of "Lois Comes Out of Her Shell" in ''Family Guy'' focuses on Lois going through a mid-life crisis. She starts speaking in l33t and text message abbreviations, wears skimpy clothes, gets a lot raunchier with Peter, and culminates with her trying to have sex with Justin Bieber. As is expected in this kind of show and ''Family Guy'' in particular, Lois is back to her old self by the end of the episode.

** The Sixth Doctor is often interpreted along these lines. After wearing beige and getting really interested in cricket in his Fifth incarnation, the Sixth Doctor goes back to wearing a [[ImpossiblyTackyClothes ghastly]] pastiche of the outfit and hair he wore in his Fourth incarnation, becomes suddenly rude and confrontational, starts insulting his female companion for not being attractive enough for him (despite her being drop-dead gorgeous by any reasonable standard) and even ''fixes the TARDIS's Chameleon Circuit'' to make it look cooler, causing it to become [[StealthPun a massive organ]].

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' in an episode set in the future: Dr Doofenshmirz hasn't had a mid-life crisis and feels left out compared to other men, so he invents a device that ''induces'' a mid-life crisis in the wearer! He concludes that he prefers the boring middle-ager stuff so he takes it off. It lands on Mr.Fylnn and causes him to do something crazy and reckless; switch out his Earl Grey for ''Darjeeling''!

** Sarah also lampshades the trope when they meet up again in the new series. "I can tell you're getting older, your assistants are getting younger."
