* When the young cast of ''SpaceCases'' switch species, human Harlan gets Andromedan Radu's super hearing... and goes crazy from the agonizing physical pain caused by "hearing everything," with that everything "magnified about a million times." It takes Andromedans years of practice to filter out all this noise and focus only on what they want to listen to.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' when Patrick finally gets a nose, he takes his new sense of smell too far when he (ironically) starts a crusade against everything smell, to the point of disrupting the lives of [=SpongeBob=] and the others. To get him to stop, [=SpongeBob=] and the others subject his nose to a concentration of stink so powerful that it destroys his nose.

* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', when Guts decides to kill a giant sea god thing by hacking through its body to its heart, the heart is so huge that the sheer loudness of the heartbeat alone nearly kills him. He does manage to slay it, but afterward he is deaf, blind, and completely numb from head to toe, and has to be rescued before the sea god sinks beneath the waves. Fortunately, he recovers his sense with some rest.
