* A variation appears in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' with those who play the game, especially since many are eventually driven insane, if they didn't start out that way. [[JustifiedTrope By necessity]], "players" are distrustful and hostile towards everyone else, as they aim to be the winner and SoleSurvivor, and many attack all other people on sight. Sometimes this verges on ChaoticStupid behaviour.

** Creator/FrankMiller's ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' partly plays this straight and partly parodies it, by showing how absurd Batman's conflict with supervillains become when made a discourse to the popular psychology and sociological analysis of prime time cable news. Popular psychologists and careerist shrinks like Bat Wolper tries to cure the likes of Two Face via plastic surgery that repairs the bad-half of the face. [[spoiler:It turns out to be the wrong half, the real Harvey Dent was the scarred out part of his face, representing his guilt and self-loathing]]. The book also shows Joker closer to the original Bill Finger characterization as a joyless psychopath who speaks in a CreepyMonotone, although it does this by playing up the FoeYay element to whole new heights. Batman himself in Frank Miller's books is shown to be somewhat of a Functional Madmen most of the times.

* Subversion in ''{{Scribblenauts}}''. Entering the word "Psycho" spawns a girl with a knife, but like any neutral NPC, she only attacks when frightened and holding a weapon.

* Chiri Kitsu of ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' started out as mostly a ControlFreak / NeatFreak, but over time becomes defined by violent psychopathy and is presented as a SerialKiller.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/DarkSouls'', any being too heavily afflicted by the titular Dark Soul will inevitably devolve into a raging, psychopathic beast that attacks anything that looks at them funny (and many things that don't). [[spoiler: ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' explains why in its ''The Ringed City'' DLC; Gwyn's fear of the Dark Soul and those that can wield its power led him to craft the Darksign as a brand that would cut off humanity's access to their dark souls and the Abyss. Over time they lost the ability to properly control the dark as they were meant to, leading to its two manifestations seen in the series proper; either as the Undead Curse or as a SuperMode that confers great power but completely destroys the mind and soul of whoever is afflicted by it.]]

* In the ''DarkSouls'' 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.

* Farfarello of WeissKreuz falls under this, particularly in back story. As a child, he [[spoiler: snapped and killed his whole family, despite apparently being a perfectly normal kid before hand.]]

* ''FanFic/Bird'' plays with this concept. While many patients are dangerous, the danger has no direct correlation to insanity. Sveta is very violent, but perfectly sane, as it is entirely her power's doing. Burnscar is somewhat less violent, but also has mental and emotional problems to match. Taylor is initially very hesitant to use her powers in an effort to avert this in herself.

* ''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).
