* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', grief-maddened Merik is absolutely convinced that his sister was the one to kill him, even though there's no proof she was and a mountain of evidence against her involvement - evidence he refuses to acknowledge.

* ''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. So a Marauder who believed himself to be a NatureHero would walk down the street transforming buildings into gigantic old growth trees, cars into elephants or lions, and people into natives...and then they would all change back as soon as he left the area.

* ''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"]].

* 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 poster child for many other tropes: BeliefMakesYouStupid, the InspectorJavert, the KnightTemplar, the LawfulStupid. Not to be confused with the TheSparkOfGenius or the RealityWarper (who literally ''can'' reject and replace reality) although it is possible to combine this trope with either of the others; AGodAmI is usually the result. Also, if the reality is [[LotusEaterMachine fake]] [[{{Masquerade}} to]] [[DyingDream begin with]], rejecting it may be a right and necessary step to awaken. If rejecting reality actually causes stuff to happen outside the person's head, they are a RealityWarper.

* ''Webcomic/EnsignSueMustDie'': Ensign Sue is totally convinced that she's the protagonist of a suefic, and always acts as if everyone else fits into one. She rejects any evidence that reality does not work that way and that her crewmates are trying to get rid of her by any means necessary. For example, when Spock fires a phaser at her (she survives), she thinks that he was trying to give a demonstration to her and the phaser went off accidentally. [[spoiler: When she's BroughtDownToNormal in the sequel, she is forcibly dragged back into reality.]]
