** If you thought ''The Killing Joke'' was mind-screwy, then you're never going to make it out of ''[[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman: R.I.P.]]'' with your sense of reason intact. Batman having a whole separate personality triggered by an arbitrary gibberish phrase that's a ShoutOut to a Silver age Batman comic ('Robin Dies At Dawn!'), SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker cutting his own tongue in half with a razor and having no lips and being almost unintelligible because of it, Dr. Hurt potentially being a demon or the devil (your interpretation WILL vary)... Yeah, ''Killing Joke'' is a cakewalk compared to that storyline. Then again, Grant Morrison wrote it, and while he ''is'' considered one of the better Batman authors, his work, as mentioned above, can be ''very'' mindscrewtastic.

* ''ComicBook/{{Marville}}'': Long-debunked scientific hypotheses. Parodies that don't make sense. Wolverine as the first human. Dinosaurs speaking Hebrew. Random switching from parody to serious philosophy and back again.

Random switching from parody to serious philosophy and back again. Given that the philosophy is so silly and the comedy is so poor trying to tell which part is which is liable to make your head hurt.

* ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis Aftermath: Escape''. In which Tom "Nemesis" Tresser finds himself in a mysterious city, along with all DC's other "spy" characters, and apparently it's the future setting of ''OMAC'', complete with Lilas and GPA agents, or maybe it isn't, and characters die, but come back, and when ''he'' dies, the whole thing starts again. Appropriate, since the whole book is an homage to ThePrisoner.

* The point in which ''TheMaxx'' jumps from trippy to actual MindScrew may vary from person to person. Some may say it's when the villain turns out to be a giant psychopathic self-help-fueled banana slug; other may say it's just right before the revelation of why Julie's Outback was created (that part with the Hooly); or maybe when [[spoiler:Sarah comes back from DisneyDeath as an Isz]]...
* A certain scene in ''JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac'' pulls a particularly screwy example: the schizophrenic titular character is having just another debate with the Doughboys, two voices in his head he identifies as two styrofoam figures he painted. There's nothing much out of the ordinary at first. However, when a third 'voice' in the form of a dead rabbit tries to warn Johnny that the Doughboys are trying to use him, the perfectly ordinary styrofoam figures ''start moving around by themselves'' and proceed to tear the rabbit's head off, and continue to move around for the rest of the scene. Johnny briefly remarks that he's never seen them move around like that before, and one replies "Well, the rabbit provoked us." However, near the end of the scene Johnny stops in mid-rant and asks "Um, how come you guys aren't moving around anymore?" The other simply replies ''"We can't move around - we're made of styrofoam."''
