* The player character of ''[[VideoGame/CubeEscape Cube Escape: Seasons]]'' is clearly aware that they're [[InsaneEqualsViolent dangerously mentally ill]]. They take Prozac daily, went to Rusty Lake because it was advertised as a place for patients, and one of the notes they leave on their bulletin board is "I'm afraid I will do something terrible." Additionally, when it looks like they really ''did'' do something terrible ([[spoiler:murdering a woman who turns out to be ''[[DrivenToSuicide themselves]]'' - it's [[MindScrew that kind of game]]]]), they seek to [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong change the past]] to prevent this from happening. They also double as a TragicMonster after you learn in ''The Mill'' [[TheCorruption how they came to be what they are]].

* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker revels in his madness most of the time, but since one symptom of his insanity is his shifting characterization, this isn't always the case. In the end of ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'', he almost considers Batman's offer to rehabilitate him before regretfully saying it's too late. In ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'', he decides to use his new cosmic powers to destroy the universe because any universe that would allow someone like him to exist must be fundamentally broken.

* In ''Film/{{M}}'', the eponymous murderer of children insists that he is this. He uses this to contrast himself against the mob after him. While he may be a child-murderer, he has no control over it and didn't choose it; the criminals who are after him though chose to be criminals.

TruthInTelevision for many people with mental illnesses, by the way. However, despite the scary-sounding trope name, most RealLife people in this situation wouldn't be dangerous to anyone except maybe themselves if they lost control of their illness. Being AxCrazy is a lot more common in fiction than reality, after all. There's also the fact that if you're aware enough to be ashamed of it, you're probably doing something (such as psychotherapy or medication) to mediate the symptoms.
