* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'' downplays this with Lalli. He's both a mage and the member of the cast with an AmbiguousDisorder. The ISeeDeadPeople aspect of his powers can account for his [[AnOddPlaceToSleep strange choices of sleeping places]] (a preference for small spaces and having other people around), while his cat-like mannerisms may have something to do with his luonto being a lynx. However, there are two other mages in the story. Lalli's older and more experienced as a mage cousin Onni has an overblown and quite possibly justified Big Brother Instinct, but other than that acts perfectly normal. Budding mage Reynir lacks Lalli's quirks as well, but also has been a mage for too little a time for any possible long term effects on behaviour to kick in. In addition, the authors herself has hinted that Lalli could be having some kind of neural issues.

* ''Literature/TheCosmere'': Played with. Having a cracked soul is a necessary prerequisite for most of the magic systems, and one of the side effects of having a cracked soul is that you are more receptive to influence from the Cognitive Realm, meaning that these people often hear voices from ghosts and planar travelers. However, people with cracked souls are also genuinely crazy, and have absolutely no way of telling the difference between the real voices and the completely imaginary ones. It's demonstrated several times that cracked souls do not cause insanity, but rather insanity causes cracked souls.

A real-world atypical neurological condition, most often autism or schizophrenia, is presented as the result of or the presence of something supernatural. Bonus points if it doesn't occur naturally at all in the fictional universe.
