* In Literature/TheBelgariad we get two Mad Gods: Torak is essentially this plus GodOfEvil and Mara went crazy after his people were wiped out in a war, casting illusions on the entire country that drive [[strike:everyone]] most people who don't have magic powers or divine protection insane if they dare to make even one step into his country. Then there's Issa, who fell in love with a mortal but neglected to give her immortality (which he presumably could have done, since his brother Aldur routinely does so for his disciples); his priests have for centuries been finding someone who looks sort of like his now-long-dead lover, renaming her, and installing her as queen ... apparently without Issa ever noticing. Really, mad (or at least really, really dumb) is pretty much the "hat" for gods in this series, with the (possible) exceptions of [-UL-] who is just sort of crotchety and Aldur who is mostly aloof.

*** If you've don't complete Sheogorath's Daedric artifact quest before [[spoiler: defeating Jyggalag]], you can go still do it by talking with OnlySaneMan[=/=]ServileSnarker Haskill. Haskill will congratulate the player on [[spoiler:how well they are taking to their new role as Daedric Prince of Madness by setting a quest for themselves to complete and then rewarding themselves with an artifact that is already theirs]].

* This is a common refrain in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfics regarding - and countering - ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureau''. In ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'', Celestia was driven to this point by Tirek's bag. In another, ''Fanfic/CulturalArtifacts'', the Solar Princess genuinely believed her own tyranny was beneficial. In very few of the counterpoints to the original Bureau fics is she depicted as anything but mad.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 4e core setting labels pretty much all the ChaoticEvil gods as this, mainly Tharizdun, Lolth, and to a lesser degree, Gruumsh. This has to do with their redefinition of the ChaoticEvil CharacterAlignment as being about "believing only one's self matters in all reality" and "being willing and able to destroy anything and anyone that doesn't directly contribute tot heir interests".

** This is one interpretation of Nightmare Moon, [[BadassPrincess Princess]] [[DarkIsNotEvil Luna's]] SuperpoweredEvilSide, created from resentment towards the ponies who rejected her night in favour of Celestia's day, her [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]] (and a bit of [[TheCorruption corruption]] by dark magic) consuming her until she enacted [[TheNightThatNeverEnds eternal night]] to [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds force ponykind into appreciating her work]]. She is either completely unaware or perhaps she [[ItsAllAboutMe just]] [[PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery doesn't]] [[OmnicidalManiac care]] that this would end all life in Equestria.

* Delirium from ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', what with her being the AnthropomorphicPersonification of madness. Though she is rather [[CuteMonsterGirl cute]] and harmless (unless you get on her bad side, as that highway cop found out the hard way...). And she's the baby of the family.

Though she is rather [[CuteMonsterGirl cute]] and generally harmless (unless you personally get on her bad side ''or'' good side, as her insanity makes it so that highway cop found out the hard way...).even when she's trying to do a favor for somebody, it may have horrible unintended consequences). And she's the baby of the family.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'': One of Vampirella's most powerful foes is the "Mad God Chaos", who rules over TheLegionsOfHell. He's usually a stand-in for Satan, but he didn't get the nickname for no reason, since he's literally insane. This has also affected the way Hell is being run for the worse.

* In ''Literature/EverybodyLovesLargeChests'' the God of Chaos, whose name changes every time it is mentioned, has more than a few screws loose in his pineapple.

* The main villain in the flash game ''VideoGame/RealmOfTheMadGod''.''VideoGame/RealmOfTheMadGod'', the aptly named Oryx the Mad God. Although he is a bit more tame than many of the other examples on this list, as he leans a bit more towards GodIsEvil.
