* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has Brook, who after a series of particularly unfortunate circumstances ends up spending nearly fifty years without sunlight or contact with any other living thing. Because of a promise he'd made to his dying crew and Laboon he won't even consider killig himself. The brief flashback set ten years into his ordeal leaves little doubt that he's gone off the deep end, to say nothing of when the main cast finds him after another forty years. Made worse by the fact that he's made immortal by a Devil Fruit power, meaning that he doesn't even have a natural death to look forward to. This trope is emphasized by the fact that Brook's remaining crew dies while playing a song. As they die, he comments that it's only a quartet, trio, duet and finally solo.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has Brook, who after a series of particularly unfortunate circumstances ends up spending nearly fifty years without sunlight or contact with any other living thing. Because of a promise he'd made he couldn't even kill himself. The brief flashback set ten years into his ordeal leaves little doubt that he's gone off the deep end, to say nothing of when the main cast finds him after another forty years.
** Made worse by the fact that he's made immortal by a Devil Fruit power, meaning that he doesn't even have a natural death to look forward to. When [[{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}} Bender]] said that the only thing that kept him sane was having an eternity in which to perfect his art, he lasted two minutes before he gave up. Brook kept going for half a century. To be fair, though, when he is finally free of his imprisonment, he uses the skills he acquired in fifty years of isolation to [[spoiler: become a world famous musician during the two year TimeSkip.]]
*** The lack of a natural death is (mercifully) debatable fanon, however. In his introductory arc he referred more than once to the fact that his second lifetime is expected to simply run out eventually.
** This trope is emphasized by the fact that Brook's remaining crew dies while playing a song. As they die, he comments that it's only a quartet, trio, duet and finally solo.
** To add some more perspective on this, one chapter was dedicated to reviewing the timeline of the universe. When the rest of the Straw Hats were just starting to go through their tragic pasts, Brook was still by himself, amusing himself by leaning up against walls at various angles.
