* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Sansa Stark hates the world she lives in. In the real world, the truth is either boring or horrible, so she makes up stories in her mind to survive. This is taking a toll on her sanity.

* In the ''Podcast/HowDidThisGetMade'' episode on the movie ''Film/{{Sleepwalkers}}'', June Diane Raphael flatly refuses to acknowledge that the titular Sleepwalker creatures are a mother and son in the midst of ParentalIncest. Co-host Jason Mantzoukas wastes no time needling her about it throughout the episode.

* Nale of ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'' is convinced that the Desolation is ''not'' coming, despite several people telling him that they saw the tell-tale sings of it. In his reality, those are all either unconnected coincidences or remnants of the previous Desolation - [[spoiler:at least until he sees the Voidbringers himself.]]

* The recent VisualNovel/Danganronpa installation entitled ''VisualNovel/NewDanganronpaV3'' has the theme of '''Truth against Lies''', giving the chapter 6 TheReveal of literally BreakingTheFourthWall that the characters are nothing but fictional contestants of a reality game show also entitled as ''Danganronpa'' itself. The characters are in shock that everything was a lie, including their identities, their memories, and their talents. They were able to recover this though in the end.

* ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'' employs reality-rejection as a sociological tool (it '''is''' the trope namer for the OrwellianRetcon.) The residents of that world will even reject their ''own'' reality, if it's no longer in accordance with new updates in doctrine.

*** Some of them also literally had the ability to "substitute their own": they would (in a manner totally unconnected to their actual power level as a mage) unconsciously [[RealityWarper warp the reality]] around them to conform to their delusion.

* ''Anime/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions'' gives us Rikka Takanashi, who for the most part is just a {{Chuunibyou}}, but the one part of her fantasy that she absolutely will not let go of is [[spoiler:that her old home still exists, and that her father is still alive on the other side of the "invisible boundary line"]].
