* 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.

* There are various tales of a sailor who would bring the [[HollywoodHomely most]] [[{{Gonk}} unattractive]] [[AbhorrentAdmirer woman]] he could find along on his voyages (to serve as a cook, or whatever). When she [[SituationalSexuality began to look good to him]], he knew he'd been at sea for too long and that it was time to head home (or at least to the nearest port.)

* One of the most infamous examples is the claim that sailors in previous centuries thought they had seen mermaids while at sea. It's generally assumed that they actually just saw manatees who feed their young in a manner that resembles a human female breastfeeding her baby. Still, you have to pretty insane to confuse a Manatee with a human female.
** Well, that or... ahem... [[SituationalSexuality very desperate.]]
*** Though Columbus wrote in his log "I have seen the mermaids, and they are not so beautiful as tales tell."

* In ''Literature/{{Jam}}'', the main character, Travis, having managed to barely escape a small scale apocalypse but losing several friends in the process, finds himself stuck floating on a lifeboat with his only company being a spider he brought along in a box. It doesn't take long for Travis, who is already whacked by a severe case of SurvivorGuilt, to crack completely and start talking to himself and even misattributing his own replies to his ''spider''.
