* From ''{{Nation}}'': "''Calenture''...meant a special kind of madness...sailors got [it] when they'd been becalmed at sea for too long. They'd look over the side and see, instead of the ocean, cool green fields. They'd leap down into them and drown." Although, since it's First Mate Cox doing the explaining there, it's possible that he [[KickTheDog pushed them in himself]].
** Creator/TerryPratchett had already mentioned the phenomenon in ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', where he uses it as an analogy for what happens to clacks operators after a while.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'': As quoted, the episode "How the West was Fun". The [[DisneyAcidSequence full sequence]] is mildly horrifying.

* VideoGame/SunlessSea, the VideoGame/FallenLondon spinoff. "Go Insane, Eat Your Crew" is one of its main slogans, and indeed one of the major challenges of the game is keeping the terror of the Unterzee - the vast underground windless waveless dark monster-infested sea said to be the skull of a dead god - from driving your crew violently insane. Venture up to the safer, choppier seas of the ''surface'' and something similar applies; you and your crew are too much part of the Neath now and sunlight is harmful, dazing everyone to the point that they aren't afraid as their fellows start dying of it.

*** The fact that [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld the Mariner might be close to a thousand years old]] would seem to corroborate his story, unless every single detail, including when it happened, is a hallucination.

* ''Literature/MobyDick'': By the end of the tale, almost everyone has succumbed to this to varying degrees, even Ishmael. The only ''possible'' exceptions are Starbuck, by virtue of being the OnlySaneMan, and Ahab himself, who was already crazy before he even got on the boat.
