* ''{{Discworld}}'' and ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheManyWorldsInterpretation'' sees a meeting of shining minds across worlds between Unseen University and Caltech. Sheldon Cooper proves to be a man who even the Unseen University Faculty come to view as eccentric and hard to deal with. As noted below, theoretical physicians and mathematicians share a lot of common traits. These are enough to excite the appetitie of the dread, if dysfunctional, entity known on the Disc as the Shadowing Lemma, which devours the brain energies of mathematically-minded geniuses (and camels), leaving only a dribbling husk who is totally unable to interact in normal human society. [[note]][[DeadpanSnarker Leonard Hofstadter]] asks if anyone would notice any difference[[/note]]. Ponder Stibbons, assisted by HEX, has to find a way of destroying the Lemma lest one be loosed on Earth. Sheldon, unwittingly, becomes bait in a trap...

* ''Manga/GambleFish''[='=]s [[TheHeavy Heavy]] Abandi is revealed to be one of these. In specific, he believes to discover a message from God itself within his mathematics. He tests whether or not he should share his discovery with anyone by suicidal exploits in hopes of testing whether or not God would protect him, ultimately leading to his StartOfDarkness when he's electrocuted and believes he came BackFromTheDead.
* The third season has ''Anime/HellGirl'' has one of the villains of the week, Mizuragi Shogo, a mathematician who is obsessed with Hell because the Hell Girl sent his mother to Hell. Eventually, he was able to prove the existence of Hell and used the knowledge to create a device to keep Ai's minions away he could meet her on his own terms. To that end, he used hypnosis to artificially create a grudge against Tsugumi, who by that point has given up on trying to stop Ai from taking souls and is resigned to her fate. Shogo, Ai, Ai's minions and Tsugumi all get a resounding YoureInsane from Yuzuki. Eventually, Shogo's assistant banishes him to Hell so that several children who had been orphaned by Shogo's earlier inventions wouldn't make the contract at the cost of their own souls.
* Moriaki-sensei from ''Manga/SoredemoMachiWaMawatteiru'' looks like your average SternTeacher at first, but he takes Mathematics ''way'' too seriously.

* In Franchise/TheDCU, the sentient GreenLantern mathematical progression Dkrtzy RRR was discovered by mad mathematician Timph Rye, who sought to prove that willpower could be derived formulaically. Dkrtzy RRR is itself of suspect mental stability; its tendency to corrode the minds of its enemies from the inside is... controversial among the ranks of the Corps.

* Sheldon Cooper in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' is a theoretical physicist rather than a pure mathematician. However, the two disciplines are closely related and as Sherldon demonstrates, their practitioners share a lot of the same (un)common quirks and eccentricities, right down to the multiple whiteboards full of symbols impenetrable to the outsider.

* Jennifer Goines in the ''Series/TwelveMonkeys'' TV series is a mathematical genius whom the main character Cole first meets when both of them are patients in the same closed psych ward for the criminally insane. Based on everything she does during the series, she was put there for a good reason.

* DoctorSteel is a mad scientist who sings about the ''Fibonacci Sequence''.
* JonathanCoulton is apparently of the opinion that now and again, a great mathematician will come along and actually ''decrease'' the madness of the field by solving or figuring out something that had been flummoxing his compatriots, if the first verse of the song ''Mandlebrot Set'' is anything to go by.
