** In fact, pretty much every Forerunner Monitor we've met so far have spent the previous 100,000 years by themselves. All of them have gone a little batty, but some do handle it better than others.

* ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'''s 343 Guilty Spark was left to oversee Installation 04 all by himself for 100,000 years, with nothing but increasingly infrequent communications from the Monitors on the other six Halo rings for company. After exhausting all his planned experiments and entering longer and longer periods of hibernation, he started ejecting portions of the ring's landscape into space to keep occupied. In the Anniversary terminals, he notes that the Forerunners really ought to have assigned two monitors per ring.

* ''Something Green'' by FredricBrown has a protagonist trapped on an alien world where there is apparently nothing that is colored green. He keeps himself sane by a combination of talking to his alien pet and occasionally firing his RayGun, which has a green energy discharge, while he dreams of returning to Earth, apparently the only planet where green things grow. Then he's rescued. [[spoiler:It turns out the alien pet is a hallucination. When his rescuer reveals to him that Earth has been destroyed in a war and that he'd have to settle on one of the other, non-green planets, the protagonist has a BSOD and murders his rescuer, then wanders off and completely forgets about the incident and continues to dream of rescue. It's implied that this has happened to him more than once.]]

* ''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.
