** Explanation: [[spoiler: the Sun is about to go nova so humans '''ALL''' got on rocket ships to find a new sun, knowing how crazy that would be. Aliens find us mid-journey. They might regret that.]]

--> '''Shepard''': Maybe you're right. Maybe we can't win. But we will fight. We will sacrifice. And we will find a way! Because that's what humans do!\

* This is part of the underlying theme of GarthEnnis notoriously Gorn-filled series ''{{Crossed}}''. It's pointed out several times by different characters that as monstruous as the Crossed's behavior is (cannibalism, rape, infanticide, usually all three at the same time), they're still things that normal humans do all the time. What the Crossed virus does is seemingly removing the sane parts of the human psyche, leaving only the madness behind.

** This is particularly noticable when one compares straight up Lovecraft-authored protagonists to those of more "SwordAndSorcery branches" of the CthulhuMythos, such as Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian, where the protagonist, whilst still finding the {{Eldritch Abomination}}s to be scary, manages to take a stand at them and comes out ultimately mentally unscathed.

* In the ''[[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Mankind Veil of Madness]]'' stories from 4chan's /tg/, this is revealed to be why humans haven't found any alien life. When humanity finally journeyed into space, they found several extinct alien civilizations, some pre-industrial, some which had expanded into space empires, but eventually they had all succumbed to some mysterious interal destruction. When humanity finally finds an alien species thats still alive, an agressive reptilian one still in its prehistory, it quickly turns out that the entire race is psychotically violent to the point that spontaneous suicide is common. Its not until humanity has its first disastrous encounter with an alien space ship that the truth is revealed: Earth is located in an area, encompassing around 3% of the galaxy, that is known as the "Veil Of Madness" because the species that evolve here are, to a man, violent and insane. Through some quirk of evolution, humans have ''just'' enough sanity that our species haven't succumbed to complete self destruction and are capable of rational behavior, but the fact that our species originated from the Veil means that the rest of the universe is terrified of us. Eventually, the humans give up on trying to convince the rest of the galaxy that we arent roaming space murderers and uses our scary reputation as an edge in negotiations and diplomacy, playing up the Terrifying Psycho Alien image by wearing scary power armor and scrambling our voices. The result is that the other space-faring civilizations view humans as "scary and dangerous but not unreasonable".

When humanity finally journeyed into space, they found several extinct alien civilizations, some pre-industrial, some which had expanded into space empires, but eventually they had all succumbed to some mysterious interal internal destruction. When humanity finally finds an alien species thats that's still alive, an agressive aggressive reptilian one still in its prehistory, it quickly turns out that the entire race is psychotically violent to the point that spontaneous suicide is common. Its common, and they probably would've died out already if they didn't have such a high birth rate. It's not until humanity has its first disastrous encounter with an alien space ship that the truth is revealed: Earth is located in an area, encompassing around 3% of the galaxy, that is known as the "Veil Of Madness" because the every species that evolve evolves here are, (as well as non-native aliens coming into the area to a man, violent and insane.colonize planets) are eventually driven insane by some kind of NegativeSpaceWedgie.

Eventually, the humans give up on trying to convince the rest of the galaxy that we arent aren't roaming space murderers and uses murderers, instead using our scary reputation as an edge in negotiations and diplomacy, playing up the Terrifying Psycho Alien image by wearing scary power armor and scrambling distorting our voices. The result is that the other space-faring civilizations view humans as "scary and dangerous but not unreasonable".

* Humanity in ''Fanfic/MassEffectEndOfDays'' is regarded as insane by pretty much every Citadel race, for one very simple reason; they have created a synthetic partner-race, similar to the Quarians and Geth. However, unlike the Quarians and the Geth, the humans and their A.I's, the Vision, learned to [[FireForgedFriends fight together]], and are quite comfortable with the other. Naturally, the Citadel (which has always regarded A.I's to be [[AIIsACrapshoot crapshots.]]) finds it insane that the Vision are even allowed to aid humans in matters of technology and genetic engineering.

* In the ''[[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Mankind Veil of Madness]]'' stories from 4chan's /tg/, this is explicitly the reason why humans have free run of a good chunk of the galaxy - Part of it drives anyone in it insane, but humans are all a little crazy already.
