* Similar to the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' example below, the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' story ''FanFic/{{Asylum}}'' has Twilight going to bed after another day with her friends, only to wake up in the titular asylum, where the doctor inform her the life she remembers, was just a side-effect of her new experimental treatment regiment. Instead of becoming the personnel apprentice of Princess Celestia, Twilight apparently had a mental break down, who's been hallucinating her many misadventures and most of the characters from the show, are still real in some way or another, [[spoiler: but her prized assistant and adopted brother is not.]] Then she hears [[spoiler: Celestia telling her that the Asylum isn't real and Equestria is in danger of dark forces]] and Twilight notices signs of a conspiracy among the staff. Which is real is yet be made clear.

* In ''Literature/HouseOfLeaves'', Johnny describes in detail how the Minotaur attacks and rips into him, or how he vomits at its stench, only it didn't happen and the creature was never there in the first place. Or was it? The book is [[MindScrew irritatingly vague]] about whether the creature exists or Johnny is hallucinating. For certain, Johnny descends further and further into insanity as the book progresses.

* ''Series/TheAffair'': Throughout much of season 3, after doing a 3-year stint in prison during the TimeSkip between seasons, Noah is being stalked by a psychotic prison guard named John Gunther who even stabs him during a home invasion. When he visits Gunther in his hometown, [[spoiler:he doesn't even recognize Noah and turs out to just be a normal guy. It's likely that most of their interactions in prison were imaginary, and Noah stabbed himself.]]

* ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'': Chapter 50 implies that the way the series as it's presented comes off as this. All of the serious, mind-wracking battles that Shirogane and Kaguya go through and their extreme efforts to deny their feelings to themselves and each other end up looking like awkward flirting and thinly veiled confessions to a neutral party (in this case, Kashiwagi). No wonder EveryoneCanSeeIt.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' puts Henchman 21 through an Eyes of Madness arc in season 4. His best friend, Henchman 24, died at the end of season 3. The audience sees 21 at first having one-sided [[CompanionCube conversations with 24's skull]], then two-sided [[DeadPersonConversation conversations with his ghost]]. There are teases that maybe the skull can move or the ghost can interact with the world, and that maybe the ghost knows things that 21 couldn't, but ambiguity is maintained. Even 21 himself is not always sure he's sane as he searches for 24's killer. The truth is revealed at the end of the season. [[spoiler:The ghost is not real.]]

She is completely out of touch with reality to the point that she's created FalseMemories.]]
