* The main theme of the ''Comicbook/{{Wanted}}'' ComicBook. The hero is happy when he becomes a supervillain and begins randomly insulting and murdering people at will. Oddly enough, the villain also believes this exact same creed -- he's frustrated that the current {{Masquerade}} prevents appropriately powerful supervillains from simply causing worldwide pandemonium.

Also, halfway through the story the "hero" hits a brick wall when he realizes that 24/7 villainy is tiresome, and his new supervillain girlfriend assures him that their goal wasn't simply to make him the most depraved person who ever lived.

* ''ComicBook/{{Arawn}}'': Engus becomes an extremely debauched hedonist after the four brothers retreat to their individual kingdoms, spending his time doing nothing but drinking and holding orgies in his throne room. He even has ''a little girl'' brought before him, but thankfully we don't see what happens next.

* In an episode of ''TheSimpsons'' a self-help guru gets the entire town going on this motto -- specifically, acting like Bart. The whole thing falls apart at the festival celebrating this newfound freedom, the main catalyst being when a handyman decides he didn't "feel like" greasing the Ferris wheel so it wouldn't fall off its hinges and go on a rampage.

It's original to compare this general viewpoint of some ancient hedonists, who believed you should basically do the opposite; true happiness is the opposite of desires, which cause pain. So you shouldn't do anything like this as that won't lead you to real happiness (see UsefulNotes/Epicureanism, for instance). You can imagine any of the characters on this page laughing ruthlessly at the idea.
