* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'':
** [[spoiler:Ninian]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'' spends a brief time like this. When she's found in either Eliwood's or Hector's path, she's adrift in a small rowboat and totally amnesiac, so the cast takes her in since she can't be left alone. Soon it's shown why she's like that: [[spoiler: she and Nils tried to escape from the Dread Isle to not be forced to open the Dragon Gate and call other dragons through it, with the help of Eliwood's captured father Elbert; however, Nils fell into the sea and the already unstable Ninian snapped, blocking everything from her mind. She doesn't recover until Nils reappears and snaps her out -- and just in time, as she's BrainwashedAndCrazy and just about to open the Dragon Gate under Nergal's orders.]] From then on she's mostly sane, if [[ShrinkingViolet extremely shy and reserved]].
** Sara from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThracia776'' is regarded as such by [[spoiler: her grandfather Manfroy and the Lopto cult]]. She's more of a slightly-off but otherwise functional OracularUrchin, however, and she eagerly joins Leif's group as soon as she has the chance so she can strike out against her much hated grandpa.

* Sarah Lynn from ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'' is a beautiful Pop Star driven to Alcoholism and Drug Addiction by the demands of Show biz and the pressures of becoming a child star at the age of three. She is often seen having very public breakdowns and being dissociated from reality, but is portrayed as a sympathetic, tragic character. She even has a painting of herself as Ophelia hanging over her bed in a cartoon parody of Millais's famous painting on the same subject so the creators make it pretty clear that we're meant to see her that way.

* TheGoonShow used CampGay character Flowerdew (voiced by Peter Sellers) in this way in The Canal. His lines include "This is madness, do you hear me? Madness!" and "I'm a daisy, father's a plum, that's why we stoned him. I hear music and there's only Max Geldray there." In the episode's convoluted insurance swindle plot, the canal gives the water aspect.

This left the woman so deeply insane that she would not recognize her daughter at all, instead being convinced that one of said daughter's dolls is really "Asuka".

* Ophelia from ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', the TropeNamer. She starts out the play as a proper young lady, obedient to her father, even when he tells her she must end her relationship with Prince Hamlet, which means a lot to her. When Hamlet begins to fake his antic disposition (or actually go nuts, depending on your reading), Ophelia bears the brunt of his crazy behavior, which includes verbal abuse both public and private. Hamlet then kills Ophelia's father, and her sanity decays quickly. In a chilling scene, she walks around the King, Queen, and her own brother, without recognizing any of them, but strewing flowers, singing, and sobbing. A little later, the Queen enters with a report of Ophelia's death by drowning, saying she was so distracted that she didn't even realize the danger when she fell into a river and sank. But the men who dig her grave darkly assert she was DrivenToSuicide. Ophelia remains a popular figure for art, poetry, and reinterpretation.
