* 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.

* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} and TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}: pretty much anyone corrupted by Chaos. And seeing as the Blood God Khorne is the incarnation of rage...

* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} and TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}: pretty much anyone corrupted by Chaos. And seeing as the Blood God Khorne is the incarnation of rage... Then again, it could be argued that everyone in this universe is insane and violent to varying degrees.
** ''{{Inverted|Trope}}'' by the Necron lord Nemesor Zahndrekh. Zahndrekh was driven insane by the reanimation process and so still believes he's a living, flesh and blood being, still fighting the inter-dynasty wars of his youth. However, he's ''less'' violent for it, as he still believes in old articles of war such as taking prisoners.

* In the ''Dark Souls'' series, by ingame definition any hollowed humans and demi-gods are essentially empty husks with all traces of personality and sanity gone hence the name hollow. They are all extremely violent and hostile to any beings with their sanity intact, for some reason. The knights remaining in Anor Londo too, although just simply insane and not exactly hollowed, are in inexplicably hostile towards the undead player despite the player doing nothing except passing through.

* Splicers from ''Franchise/{{Bioshock}}'' are all insane and violent, but they have some excuses, such as still believing there is a war on and [[spoiler: being mentally influenced by the big bads.]]
** Addiction to ADAM also helps.
** This is disturbingly averted in ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock 2}}'' where the player can find some splicers who do not attack and just sit there, rocking back and forth.

* All of the insane asylum residents in Kathryn Hulme's ''The Nun's Story'' 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.

* Discussed and deconstructed by Creator/JohnOliver on ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver''. Mental illness is shown to be such an uncomfortable topic in the US that one of the only times people appear willing to talk about it is in the aftermath of mass shootings, and even then, it comes off as [[RedHerring an insincere diversion]], as ultimately neither problem is resolved.
