* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' subverted this when a clearly unhinged mailman with an issue of ''Psycho Weekly'' scared all the nearby subway passengers away when he made a seemingly threatening comment about becoming disgruntled ever since he was laid off. He then proceeds to take advantage of the cleared-up space by [[ManChild swinging harmlessly on a subway strap]].

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain''. Both of the main characters are heavily implied to be insane, but Pinky is not violent at all, while Brain does often get violent when he's annoyed but never seriously hurts anyone (unless you count unintentionally hurting himself).

* ''Series/TheXFiles'' episode "Grotesque" has a SerialKiller who claims that he's possessed by some dark spirit. Scully thinks he suffers from a dissociative disorder and Mulder informs us that he spent the better part of his twenties in an insane asylum. The episode deals with the issue of spirit possession versus insanity.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Accused}}'': Stephen is a paranoid schizophrenic. His delusions lead him to stab his stepmother, believing she killed his mother, his dog, and is trying to do his father and brother in as well. Somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] with his condition, as the belief they're being persecuted is more likely to make the person use violence (which like Stephen they may honestly believe is self-defense).

* Only somewhat TruthInTelevision. A lot of mental disorders do cause violent outbursts. However they are just that. Outbursts. They usually don't want to hurt people but sometimes they lash out at things. Some fully aware of these triggers, and tend to try to avoid them. This can backfire horribly in institutionalized settings, as they can appear totally sane in their absence, leading others to underestimate the response even if the patient themselves warn of it.
** Unfortunately, some people with such disorders aren't aware, or refuse to accept the possibility that there could be something is wrong with them. Or they are aware and refuse to get help because of this trope. These people are often the ones who commit violent crimes.
