* Ayami of ''VisualNovel/TokyoDark'' is a detective investigating the death of Kazuki, her partner, and the supernatural circumstances surrounding it. However, in one ending, she has sudden flashback which shows that she is actually Kazuki's [[StalkerWithACrush stalker]], who killed him when he 'betrayed' her by seeing another girl. Ayami's clothing then changes to a straitjacket, the woman you thought was her neighbour is revealed to be a nurse, and the background fades out to be replaced with a padded cell. It's left unclear whether Azumi went insane and was imagining herself to be in an asylum, or was really insane from the start.

** In Shadow of the Bat #38, ''Tears of a Clown'', TheJoker celebrates his anniversary of the day he was a still sane, but hapless comedian, and was thrown out of an exclusive StandUpComedy club for a unfunny act. Being desperately poor, this marks his StartOfDarkness as he agreed to provide to his family by pulling a job for the Red Hood gang. So he kidnaps all the patrons that didn't laugh with him and re-enacts his act with control collars that will kill them when they laugh. The funny thing is that the patrons are really hardcore StandUpComedy fans, [[ButForMeItWasTuesday so they have seen so many acts that nobody remembers the act of a bad comedian]]. TheJoker cannot even be sure that this StartOfDarkness really happened.

* Rooster Teeth released a special ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' video that was shot from [[CloudCuckoolander Caboose's]] perspective. Highlights include Sarge talking like a pirate. The video if [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbedr6X75ug here]], but fair warning; It's a 360 video, so you need to view it on a Google Chrome for the proper experience.

* ''{{Film/Super}}'': It's left unclear if Frank actually heard God's voice and received visions from him, or is just mentally ill. The latter is quite possible given his unhinged behavior, and even he's unsure at one point if he's really hearing God's voice or it's just in his mind.

* Horror AnthologyFilm ''Strange Events'' has the short "Descent", where a woman finds her best friend murdered in her apartment, then hides from the killer in the closet and manages to escape. Six weeks later, she's working a late night at her office job when she ends up in an elevator [[AloneWithThePsycho alone with a man she recognizes as her friend's killer]], who starts whistling the same melody she heard him whistling while standing over her friend's body... And then the elevator gets stuck. [[spoiler: As they talk to each other, the insinuation is made that he knows who she is and what she saw - Fearing for her life, she stabs him with a pen when he tries to get close, killing him in the struggle. The elevator comes back on and she steps out, only to be confronted by a security officer who ''also'' looks exactly like the killer (as does the guy manning the front desk who turns to look). It's then revealed that the man in the elevator had only the very vaguest resemblance to the killer and just happened to have the same habit of whistling - the implication is that the whistling triggered a ptsd-like breakdown and she killed a completely benign stranger as a result]].

* Tom King's ''MisterMiracle2017'' run basically involves the titular hero going through this. The story starts with Mister Miracle slitting his wrists as part of his latest adventure/escape routine, trying to see if he can escape death itself. He spends a few days in the hospital, than goes home. From that point on, it becomes increasingly unclear what's actually happening and what's delusion. At one point Miracle has a conversation with Oberon, [[spoiler:despite the fact that the latter died from cancer months ago]]. When Miracle is reminded of this fact, [[MindScrew "Oberon" immediately disappears]]. It's not even clear what the ''cause'' of the delusions could be; Mister Miracle could just be mentally ill... or he might be infected by the Anti-Life Equation.

* One of the segments of horror AnthologyFilm ''A Christmas Horror Story'' involves Santa Claus fighting a zombie outbreak among his elves in the North Pole... [[spoiler: It turns out "Santa" is a volunteer at a charity food drive at the mall, who suffered a nervous breakdown, went AxeCrazy, and started attacking volunteers and mall employees he was imagining to be zombie elves]]. There are a few early hints that something is "off" about this story line - [[spoiler: it's the only segment that (seemingly) doesn't take place in the same fictional suburb as the others, the wraparound segments keep mentioning a disturbance at a local mall, and early on Santa and his elves have an oddly technical, in-depth discussion about weather phenomena, hinting at "Santa's" true identity as a local radio weatherman who briefly appeared in the wraparound]].
