* The sci-fi series ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' has an entire race of folks called Nietzscheans. They were originally humans who decided to live by Nietzsche's writings. They left human territory to found their own colonies, genetically enhanced themselves, separated into clans (called "Prides"), and generally don't like anybody but themselves. [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch
However, at least two Nietzscheans express a variety of negative emotions]] at the fact that a group intended to be WarriorPoet-[[{{Ubermensch}} Übermenschen]] ended up as nothing more than warring bands of supremacist thugs.

** "Brian and Stewie," the show's classic BottleEpisode, also discusses this. After spending the whole episode locked in a bank vault and driving each other crazy, Brian reveals that he's kept a loaded gun and bottle of scotch in a safe deposit box so he can have the option of taking one last drink, then killing himself. He explains that he still struggles to find meaning in life, and worries that there may be none. Again, Stewie responds with a declaration of love--not romantic love, mind, but the love and respect one feels for a genuine friend. Brian expresses a similar sentiment to Stewie, and the baby muses that perhaps the only meaning in life is giving happiness to others, which Brian seems to accept.

** The comic book continuation of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' introduces The Clown King, the [[LegacyCharacter self-proclaimed successor]] of the Joker (in reality, he's the sociopathic younger brother of Dana and has idolized the Joker since childhood). However, he claims that the Joker, for all his nihilism, ''didn't go far enough'' and still cared about two things: his fights with Batman, and being remembered as a symbol of chaos. The Clown King on the other hand couldn't care less about anything at all, because in his view, because no matter how hard you try to preserve your legacy, the universe will eventually end and nothing whatsoever matters. All he wants is to kill as many people as possible, preferably including his own family, then die himself. He achieves this by organizing an enormous riot with Jokerz-members from all over the country, killing thousands of people and leaving Gotham in ruins. He dies falling off a building while fighting Terry.

* LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'s Huey Laforet used to be one of these back in 1705. In a bit of jest, ''Ironic Light Orchestra'' refers to his misanthropic internal monologues as "[[EmoTeen surprisingly normal thoughts for a fourteen-year-old]]."
