* If this trope does not describe your mindset while playing and of the ''{{X-Com}}'' series, you'll soon [[ThatOneLevel find]] [[DemonicSpiders yourself]] thinking [[ParanoiaFuel like]] [[TotalPartyKill that]].

* [[WhateleyUniverse Whateley Academy]] is actively trying to instill a form of this attitude in its students. As staff members have been heard to state outright, the point of the school isn't so much to produce superheroes or -- villains -- or even provide a formal education (though it does that, too) as to train young mutants to survive in a world in which many people ''are'' out to get them.

* ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' has a whole quest series where an ex-zookeeper, Larry, was fired for claiming penguins are trying to take over the world. After the first quest in the series, you can see him squirming in a straitjacket outside the zoo where he once worked.

Bob convinced that there's someone, or a group of someones out to get him or someone else. He takes incredible precautions to protect himself. For his efforts, Bob is called paranoid, insane, a CloudCuckoolander, a ControlFreak, a ConspiracyTheorist, or any of a host of other (most probably rude) names.

Added DiffLines:

* On ''Film/TheConversation'' Harry Caul does everything in his power to keep his privacy intact, to the point that he keeps his office phone unlisted (and he makes calls through public phones if he needs to contact someone) and it's a serious, relationship-shattering BerserkButton if anybody asks him too many questions about anything (''especially'' personal info). Then it turns out that the company that hired him to record the titular conversation made a very thorough dossier on him even before he was hired and there is absolutely ''nothing'' that they don't know about him and there is absolutely ''no place'' that he owns that they can't break into to steal from him or place a bug.

There ''is'' someone out to get Bob and his family and friends -- and they ''are'' using all sorts of devious devices and schemes that would succeed… if the person enacting the security lockdown weren't doing her job. Sadly, only Bob, the opposing forces, (and sometimes the audience) know that the full-body frisking of the girlfriend is mandatory for survival.

Bob TheParanoiac is driving people insane with his security precautions. He inspects every room, he nails every door, and the only people he lets near his 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. Bob is called paranoid, insane, a ControlFreak, and a host of other names. There's just one problem:

[[TheCuckoolanderWasRight Bob is right]].

* In general, some of the British public (including ConspiracyTheorist-types) are trying to [[InvokedTrope invoke this trope]] because of concerns about the government, SinisterSurveillance, YouCanPanicNow and [[WeAreAllStrugglingTogether there seems to be a "us-vs-them attitude" towards the Government]].
