Very occasionally, this ''can'' be TruthInTelevision: people with mental illnesses do commit ''slightly'' more violent crime than average. [[RuleOfDrama But it's not anywhere nearly as common as media would imply]]. In fact, [[http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1389236/ they are actually more than eleven times more likely]] [[AcceptableHardLuckTargets to be victims of violence]]. Alcohol and drug abuse are associated much more strongly with violence, and when you account for the increased prevalence of drug and alcohol abuse among those with mental illnesses, the extra risk of violence vanishes completely... [[RuleOfCool but that's not as interesting]].

* In ''WebComic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', this was the result when [[BigBad Xykon]] threw a bouncy ball inscribed with a [[BrownNote Symbol of Insanity]] into the throne room of [[TheOrder the Sapphire Guard]]. Only a few [[NominalImportance named members]] were unaffected, and the last survivor from the ensuing bloodbath committed {{seppuku}} out of grief.

Justified since that's how that particular spell works in D&D.

** A series of traumas undermine Virginia's mental health, and by the middle of the series, it's clear that something is psychologically wrong with her.

* All of the insane asylum residents in Kathryn Hulme's ''Film/TheNunsStory'' embody this trope to some degree. The Archangel Gabriel [[spoiler: attempts to rape Sister Luke]], and another inmate, who is never caught, [[spoiler: murders one of the nuns]]. Even the Abbess (who, much to Sister Luke's surprise, turns out to have been an actual abbess), turns violent when thwarted.

* In the last arc of ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Klara suffers a panic attack and lashes out at her teammates, resulting in the destruction of the team's house. To be fair, most of the damage to the house comes not from her personally, but from the plants that she summons (over which her control depends on her emotional state), but she herself punches and kicks Nico several times, causing the latter to resort to MindRape to force her to calm down.

* Diamond, on [[OriginalCharacter OC]] from FanFic/AkatsukiKittenPhoenixCorporationOverhaul. The difference is that she is very aware of it, and came to terms with it long ago. If pressed for an explanation ''other'' than insanity, she'll blame her extreme bloodlust on her family history: [[spoiler: she used to be [[{{Literature/Twilight}} Renesmee Carlie Cullen]].]]
