* In MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic tale "FluttershyIsFree," Fluttershy makes the mistake of telling her foalhood friend [[BoisterousBruiser Rainbow Dash]] that Fluttershy herself was [[spoiler:sired by a Changeling]] by introducing it as the ravings of her [[UnreliableNarrator paranoid mothe]]r. Given that Fluttershy does not in any way look like [[spoiler:the mythical flying creature the Pegasi know as "buzzies"]] and generally take about as seriously as we do UFO sightings, Rainbow Dash simply assumes that Fluttershy has gone a bit crazy under the stress of being the [[TheUnfavorite unfavorite daughter]] in a [[BigScrewedUpFamily dysfunctional family]]. At this point, Fluttershy gives up trying to tell Rainbow Dash the truth. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as in canon Fluttershy is normally a [[ShrinkingViolet ''very'' poor communicator]].

* Near the end of ''TheSharingKnife: Horizon'', [[spoiler:while Dag has, admittedly, had a pretty rough night, and just about anyone [[JustifiedTrope would be forgiven a fair bit of hysteria]] over finding their spouse BuriedAlive; an authoritative explanation about the Enchanted Lakewalker Wedding Cords would have gotten Fawn dug up far faster than clawing at her grave barehanded while screaming "She's not dead! She can't be dead!"]]

** Played straight in season 2 since the government covered up what happened in season 1 and Molly suffered a nervous breakdown due to [[spoiler: John's death and Ethan's seizure by the government]]. She is committed to a "rest home" and her efforts to convince people that she is sane quickly devolve into this trope. It is then subverted when Molly decides that it does not matter if people think she is insane as long as they also think that she possesses useful information they need in the current crisis.

A subversion occurs when a normal person pulls this trope on a ConspiracyTheorist. Not only will he [[ProperlyParanoid believe you]], he'll also try to convince you that the situation is [[FromBadToWorse much MUCH worse]] than you think, and he will often [[CrazyPrepared already have plans in motion]] to do something about it.

*** It's also worth noting that the government officials the Professor told ''did'' believe him at first--when Fry, who's addicted to Slurm, heard that they would use the information to shut down production of the beverage, he deliberately invoked this trope by saying that "Grandpa's making up crazy stories again." This prompts Professor Farnsworth to try to explain the truth, and things go downhill from there.

* Played with in ''Series/{{Hannibal}}''; when Will realizes he's being framed for the copycat murders, he explains it to Jack in the calmest, most reasonable manner possible. Unfortunately, [[ClearMyName it doesn't help]].

Fixed example indentation, and removed duplicate bullet points.
* Subverted in an episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'', where after relating a prophetic dream he's had to General Hammond, Dr. Jackson is surprised when Hammond asks what he can do to help. When asked why he believes Jackson, Hammond gets GenreSavvy, alluding to all of the ''other'' crazy things he's seen and heard while in command of the SGC.

** In one episode, Daniel actually did get driven insane by some alien technology, and as a result was put in a mental hospital. During his stay, the technology leaves him and he recovers his wits. He starts to realize what's happened and tries to explain it... only for the attending doctors to ignore him because, after all, he's crazy. -->'''Daniel''': "''Why does everyone think I'm crazy!?'' *beat* Probably because I'm acting like it, aren't I?"
