Alice TheParanoiac is driving people insane with her security precautions. She inspects every room, she nails every door, and the only people she lets near her family are people who've gone through a background check so extensive not even Mother Teresa could pass through clean, and even then it's at a distance. Alice is called paranoid, insane, a ControlFreak, and a host of other names. There's just one problem.

** Sam and Dean themselves qualify, as well as their mentor, [[TeamDad Bobby]]. Bobby apparently made copies of pretty much every important text he keeps in his house and stashed them in various other safe houses, which turns out to be handy when [[spoiler:an angel steals some of his books and later, his house is burned down.]] In another episode, Sam and Dean burn the body of a necromancer ''before'' they find out that the cremation was necessary to keep the body from regenerating, presumably just to avoid the possibility of a vengeful spirit. They then set about trying to figure out how to disable one of their allies just in case they might need to do so in future.

* Creator/GahanWilson did a [[http://jimbovard.com/blog/2009/09/21/my-paranoia-vindicated-gahan-wilson/ one-panel comic]] for ''{{Playboy}}'' which shows a psychiatrist asking his patient "When did you first become aware of this imagined 'plot to get you,' Mr. Potter?" ...while crooking his finger at two grinning black-cloaked assassins who are creeping in through the office door.

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'':
** In chapter 17 Shinji was forced to talk to SEELE. Before that meeting his mind came up with all kind of bad scenarios and disastrous outcomes (including SEELE saying they knew everything before putting a bullet in his head). His paranoia was, of course, justified: [[spoiler:Khiel figured out that he was up to something.]]
** When she was bathing in the hot springs, Asuka was ''almost'' sure that the penguin was eyeing her. Since the aforementioned bird was Pen Pen, she was pretty right.

* One of the minor plot threads in the first season of FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse is Applejack's paranoid insistence that she and her family have a sacred duty to single-handedly ensure that Ponyville never goes hungry, and that therefore anyone trying to compete against her wants Ponyville to starve. This is always presented as just plain ridiculous until Zecora unleashes a curse that ruins most of Ponyville's farms and only the massive Apple family food stockpiles can keep the town fed until the next crops come in. The mayor even tells Applejack that she should feel free to say "I told you so".

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' gives us Eraqus, whom both the [[InformedWrongness narrative]] and the [[UnreliableNarrator Xehanort Reports]] would have you view as a blinded KnightTemplar of Light. However, [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil Balance Between Light and Darkness]] has repeatedly proven to be a BrokenAesop throughout the entire franchise, with LightIsGood heroes and DarkIsEvil threats indeed being the predominant themes. Additionally, Xehanort himself, while not entirely wrong about Eraqus's "absolutes", is far worse of a {{Sociopath}} of Darkness and repeatedly engages in KickTheDog behavior via said power, meaning that Eraqus doesn't have any actual reason to change his mind. [[spoiler:And while Eraqus does end up finally snapping and trying to kill Ven and Terra for the greater good, it retroactively turns out to be a mercy compared to their eventual fates... and even then, Eraqus still ultimately invokes MyGodWhatHaveIDone and decides to atone by using his Heart to later shield Terra's from the full brunt of Xehanort's Darkness -- which, by the way, wouldn't have even remotely worked if Eraqus wasn't indeed so devoted to Light.]]
