** The band's previous albums, ''Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon'' and (especially) ''Wish You Were Here'', were inspired by the real-life sanity slippage of former bandleader Music/SydBarrett, who had become impossible to work with. "''Now there's a look in your eyes / like black holes in the sky''". His former bandmates reluctantly dropped him and felt guilty about it ever after. The two albums were enormously successful, but the subsequent non-stop grind of touring to unappreciative audiences caused Music/RogerWaters to suffer a sanity slippage of his own, which directly inspired ''The Wall''. Which was an even more enormous success!

* Estee's ''FanFic/TriptychContinuum'' has one in ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/173790 Permanent Record]]'', wherein a poor guard is driven to utter and absolute madness over time by the antics of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, eventually culminating in their utter certainty that everything which goes wrong is their fault. To be fair, though... usually it is.

* In the ''VideoGame/UnderTale'' fanfic ''FanWork/AlphysHoek'', this gradually happens to Alphys over the course of each chapter, partially as a result of [[AndIMustScream having to deal with the game's fanbase 24/7]] and also partially as a result of the unspeakably humiliating things that Mettaton forces her to do on public TV where everyone in America can see her; by the end of the story, she's a literal genderbent [[TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren Höek]] who's no less than completely hell-bent on [[BadassAdorable twisting Mettaton's neck in his sleep.]]
