* In ''Film/{{May}}'', the SanitySlippage of the title character is represented by the slow cracking of the glass case she stores her cherished doll Suzie in. [[spoiler:It finally breaks when she takes Suzie to a school for blind children that she volunteers at, as they fumble in their attempts to get Suzie out of her case and cut themselves on the broken glass. It's all downhill from there.]]

* King Charles VI of France (1368-1422) suffered from recurring bouts of insanity, including instances when he thought that he was made of glass, and this caused him to protect himself in various ways so that he would not break (Pope Pius II, who was born in the middle of Charles' reign, wrote of this in his ''Commentaries''). Other people, generally educated and/or wealthy, were documented to believe in this glass delusion in Western Europe during 15th, 16th and 17th centuries.

* Played with in ''YuGiOh'', where the Other Yugi shatters Kaiba's mind after defeating him at the end of the Death-T arc. In this case, it's intended to give Kaiba a chance to ''regain'' his sanity as he puts the pieces of his mind back together.
