* The ''Franchise/Nasuverse'' has the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, a special ability which allows people to "see" death, in the form of lines across everything that can be cut through in order to instantly kill or break apart the object. However, not only is the human mind not meant to comprehend actually seeing the concept of death, the fact that the lines are literally ''everywhere'' constantly reminds the user of the fragility of everything that exists. The comprehension is enough that [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Shiki Ryougi]], who was already borderline psychopathic before she got the eyes, immediately tried clawing out her eyes when she realized just what her eyes were seeing. Meanwhile, [[VisualNovel/Tsukihime Shiki Tohno]] doesn't freak out nearly as badly initially, but continual use throughout the story degrades his health and strains his brain as his eyes get more powerful and start showing him the death of things he shouldn't normally be able to comprehend (like buildings and concepts).

* In ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', Mahiro goes to visit the rooms Nyarko, Cuuko, and Hasuta have set up for themselves using a BiggerOnTheInside alien device. In Hasuta's room, he notices that all the corners are covered in putty; when he asks why, Hasuta says [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness very seriously]] that he's better off not knowing the answer.[[note]]Since ''Nyarko'' is based off of the Franchise/CthulhuMythos, presumably Hasuta is trying to proof his room against [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hounds_of_Tindalos Hounds of Tindalos]].[[/note]]

* In ''Literature/Warrior Cats'', the existence of [=SkyClan=], an exiled fifth Clan, is kept secret from all cats ([[spoiler: Well, at least until the sixth story arc.]]) until they die and join [=StarClan=], since [=StarClan=] feels too guilty about how [=SkyCLan=] was driven out. Upon learning of [=SkyClan=], Firestar is so shocked he nearly loses faith in [=StarClan=] altogether,

** The [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] Hermaeus Mora has this trope within his sphere. Appropriately, he is also the only Daedric Prince to actually take the form of an EldritchAbomination, being an endless mass of tentacles and eyes. If there exists some bit of information in all of existence which he does not know, he will mercilessly acquire it by whatever means necessary. One in-game book describes a mage who tried to explore the realms of Oblivion. When he entered Hermaeus Mora's realm of Apocrypha, an endless library, he became enamored with the knowledge and never left. His voice still whispers to the writer, each time more and more alien.

Further, according to Mora himself, he is/arose from knowledge that ''cannot exist'' (detritus concepts ejected from reality), rendering him not only the keeper of things man was not meant to know, but also making him something man ''cannot'' know.

* In ''[[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]]'', it is hinted that the normal science-loving King Sombra may have discovered something pertaining to dark magic that caused him to [[GoMadFromTheRevelation go mad]]. Either that, or according to the LemonyNarrator, he simply got too annoyed with [[PlayedForLaughs living with the crystal ponies and having to deal with their inane requests.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Thumper}}'': This trope doesn't come up in the game itself, however, reviewers have compared the game's horrific visuals to going to the edge of the universe and seeing things human eyes weren't meant to see.

-->''"[[EvilSorcerer He]] drove me from him at last, saying that I was but a common witch in spite of his teachings, and not fit to command the mighty sorcery he would have taught me. He would have made me queen of the world and [[TheManBehindTheMan ruled the nations through me]], he said, but I was only a harlot of darkness. But what of it? I could never endure to seclude myself in a [[GoldMakesEverythingShiny golden]] tower, and spend the long hours staring into [[CrystalBall a crystal globe]], mumbling over incantations written on [[EyeOfNewt serpent's skin]] in the [[ThePowerOfBlood blood]] of [[VirginPower virgins]], poring over [[TomeOfEldritchLore musty volumes in forgotten languages]].\\

* The book "Incongruity" by best-selling horror author Michael Waite in the WhateleyUniverse. You're fine reading it, unless you happen to know that it is really The First Scroll of The Kellith, who is prophesied to wipe mankind off the face of the earth and re-populate the planet with the seed of the [[EldritchAbomination Great Old Ones]]. It also helps not to know that Michael Waite will ''become'' The Kellith.
