* ''Series/{{Community}}'': The ball seemed to lie pretty firmly with Britta early on, but in later episodes it gets passed around mostly between Jeff, Annie, Troy, and Abed. In general, Jeff is the relatively normal one (''heavy'' emphasis on "relatively") who is the most likely to realize that the SeriousBusiness doesn't really matter, [[NotSoAboveItAll but usually gets swept up in the rest of the school's weirdness anyway.]] Annie is the most intelligent and often acts as the group's conscience, but doesn't live up to her own ideals as often as not. Troy is generally the most moral member of the group, but a complete idiot. Abed is GenreSavvy to the point of being a borderline FourthWallObserver, but has an AmbiguousDisorder to the point that one sometimes wonders if he is actually, literally insane.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', a good dozen or so characters have passed the Sanity Ball around. Roy usually carries it, but when he was [[DeathIsCheap killed]], Haley and Durkon picked it up for their respective parties. Elan occasionally takes the ball for a bardic GenreSavvy moment. Recently [[ChaoticStupid Belkar]] has picked it up with regards to [[spoiler: Durkon's vampirism]] but so far only the readers [[spoiler: and Vampire-Durkon]] can see this, and therefore be suitably terrified by it.

** However, their mother Nicole definitely grabs onto the ball the longest... unless competition is involved, then someone else has to take the ball. The episode '''The Fridge''' is a good example; she leads the family into competitive madness with Gumball with ball in hand trying to stop them.

* Much of the humor in ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun'' derives from one (or two) characters holding the Sanity Ball while watching in bemusement (or actively snarking) the craziness caused by the other characters. There are a couple of characters that hold it more often than others, such as Sakura and Hori, but even they had moments when they lost the ball to others. Sakura for example is extremely prone on losing it whenever it involves her crush, the titular Nozaki.

* In ''WesternAnimation/Archer'', no-nonsense Lana and stick-in-the-mud Cyril get the ball most often, but even the most CloudCuckoolander characters get their turns, and the ball can change possession mid-scene.
