* ZigZagged in the video for Music/PoetsOfTheFall's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ompevuR1644&list=PLjACqN5i5sDWjx8wkdUyCl4MjctV4SE6o Lift]]." Evidence from his psych hearing combined with imagery from his HappyPlace [[ImpliedTrope suggests]] MadDreamer Mark, diagnosed with schizophrenia, delusional parasitosis and dissociative identity disorder, is genuinely AxCrazy. But in his more stable moments, it takes very little {{troll}}ing on his part to provoke varying degrees of violent responses from frustrated staff, whether the psychologists are breaking pencils and scattering papers in rage, or a guard is attempting assault.

* Although not always the reason behind all the killing and violence in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', certain characters, such as Gregor Clegane and [[BastardBastard Ramsay Snow/Bolton]] are portrayed as psychopathic and are responsible for some of the most sadistic atrocities in the series.

* Manga/DragonBall Z generally implies that the more insane the villain, the more powerful. The series went from the generally sane, but evil [[FauxAffablyEvil Frieza,]] to [[AffablyEvil Cell,]] to the unbelievably psychotic being that is [[OmnicidalManiac Majin Buu.]]

* Taken to the extreme in Manga/SoulEater. Insanity, fear, madness, etc. is basically this universe's [[TheVirus Virus]]. You can be infected with insanity, and being insane means that you have the urge to hurt things. By killing humans and eating their souls (which is what insane people do, apparently), one can actually become an Eldritch Abomination. This is how the series' BigBad Asura became the Big Bad-- he was a nervous person who succumbed to his fear, and took the life of an innocent human and consumed their soul in order to gain power. (Ironically enough, consuming the soul of a corrupted, insane person in this series has no negative side effects whatsoever.)

* In ''AmericanMcGeesAlice'', the whole plot of the game is about violently abusing and protecting yourself from the mutated enemies seen as mere small cartoons in the Disney movie.
** The second game is an aversion. Alice is violent in her fantasies but almost completely helpless in real life. The only time she actually hurts someone, the player would too if they could.

* Vezon from ''{{Bionicle}}'' basically has [[NewPowersasThePlotDemands new mental disorders as the plot demands]], among them a rather literal case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder. However, he's considered relatively harmless, as he has no powers and is physically weaker than most of the other characters. His violent tendancies are usually PlayedForLaughs.

* Certainly is the case of the mental patients in the BedlamHouse section of ''VideoGame/NeverendingNightmares''. Though being bound in a straight-jacket, [[EyeScream blinded]] and [[{{Lobotomy}} lobotomized]] might be a good reason why.

* Usually inverted in RealLife. The mentally ill have little or no increased risk of committing crimes... but they are about ten times as likely to be the ''victims'' of crimes.
* Mental health and medical communities say that people with mental illness are no more likely to be violent than anyone else. This is only sort of true. Mentally ill people aren't more dangerous, ''except'' that they are a lot more likely to have symptoms of alcohol or drug abuse, and those [[DrugsAreBad are]] linked to violence.
** This comes from [[http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9596041?dopt=Abstract this study]] of acute psychiatric outpatients which I got out of [[http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp068229 this editorial]] in the New England Journal of Medicine.

* Almost inverted with at least one test on the connection between mental illness and violent crime: [[http://girlsinreallife.wordpress.com/2013/01/28/the-consequences-of-stigmatizing-mental-illness/ a whopping 4%]] of violent crime offenders were mentally ill.

* 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.
** They are also 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.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' is full of this. In the plot's defense, it does try to justify it via HatePlague, and one of these people -- Keiichi -- actually does have some violent background before coming into contact with said Hate Plague. Only [[spoiler: Satoko]] doesn't get violent when it is activated, but she knocks [[spoiler:Keiichi]] off a bridge in one continuity and kills both [[spoiler:Shmion and herself]] in a PS2-only one. And she kills [[SelfMadeOrphan her parents]]. Of course, the main [[spoiler: symptom of Hinamizawa syndrome is extreme paranoia, and when you think somebody is about to kill you, what do you do?]]
