** In ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Stardust Crusaders]]'', during the high-stakes poker match between protagonist Jotaro Kujo and D'arby the Gambler, Jotaro turns things in his favor by [[NervesOfSteel stoically betting]] the souls of two of his comrades and that of ''his own mother'', having at his disposal a hand of cards he hasn't even looked at and asking D'arby to match his wager by revealing the secret of [[BigBad DIO]]'s Stand if he loses; the idea of betraying his master, combined with the thought of Jotaro's Stand having switched cards without him noticing, take a toll on the Gambler when Jotaro starts pressuring him into calling his cards. Cue D'arby's InnerMonologue trying to ''convince'' himself into calling (which fails miserably as he realizes [[CantSpitItOut he's too terrified to do so]]):

** In ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventurePhantomBlood Phantom Blood]]'', [[BigBad Dio Brando]] has a knack for saying how "useless" anyone's efforts were when he believes he has the upper hand. At one point during his battle with the protagonist Jonathan Joestar in Windknight's Lot, he kept repeating the word "useless" over and ''over'' again just to emphasize how hopeless the situation was for Jonathan. Fast forward a century later during ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Stardust Crusaders]]'', Crusaders]]'' and now, he blurts out "muda" (AKA the Japanese word for "useless") in rapid succession ''as a battle cry'':
-->"[[NoIndoorVoice MUDA]] [[AxCrazy MUDA]] [[MemeticMutation MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDA!]]"

* In ''[[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door]]'', should you attempt to cheat at Lucky the Bob-omb's once-a-day lottery drawing by changing your system's clock, he'll be so disturbed by the fact that he'll go through about six different madness mantras and almost blow himself up in the process before expressing his irritation in a coherent fashion and requiring you to purchase a new lottery number for five times the original price.

* In ''TheEvilWithin'', Leslie, a character the protagonists chase throughout the game, tends to repeat what anyone says like a parrot. Every now and then he will repeat a few original phrases: "No, no, not there." and a phrase repeated in one of the trailers "Losing my mind. Losing my mind. Losing my mind..."

* The lyrics to Music/InformationSociety's "Ending World 1.1" are either three mantras chained together or one long one--either way, it does not end well for the narrator.
--> I am absolutely right. I am absolutely certain I am absolutely right. I am absolutely certain I am absolutely right. I am absolutely certain of all the mistakes I've made.
--> And I was born in a world that's ending. Tell me you're gonna fall down any day now. Eternal change outside me howling--and inside everything stays the same.
--> And it's the end of the world once again, and things are never gonna change when I die. As the circle comes to an end in my room--and everything stays the same--
