* ''Franchise/DragonBall''
** The more Frieza reach into his true power, the less sane he becomes. By the end of his fight with Goku, he is closed to forming at the mouth and keeps attacking Goku even after he loses more than half of his body. His sanity actually becomes ''worse'' in ''Resurrection 'F''' and deceases more throughout the movie. One minute he is acting like his usual calm, polite self, the next he's screaming and snarling. His time in Hell clearly didn't do any favors for his sanity, even if he tries to hide it at first.
** After becoming Super Perfect, Cell is noticeably more unhinged than he already was. His PsychoticSmirk is now replaced with a permanent SlasherSmile, he constantly shouts his lines, makes weird facial tics, and goes on bizzare tangents about how perfect he is.
** When Goku went Super Saiyan the first time, he is notably not completely sane. He is nearly consume by hatred and rage that he puts defeating and humiliating Frieza above escaping an exploding planet. His shifts from his normal TranquilFury self to him [[UnstoppableRage screaming in anger]] also shows how unhinged he is.
** Gohan's sanity takes a major hit after he becomes a Super Saiyan 2. No one can reason with him, not even his father. He only regain his senses after his father dies because of his actions.

** One particularly notable incident from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is when [[spoiler: Nina goes full on {{Yandere}}, to the point of showing up with a nuke to kill Zero, even though it would likely take everyone around with it, even her friends. She sounded beyond unhinged at the time, wild-eyed and shouting with grief and anger. Thankfully, it was defective...but then Nina switched to working on AppliedPhlebotinum {{fantastic nuke}}s. Oy.]]

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has Simon going AxCrazy while fighting enemy mechas, locking himself on his room almost 24/7, and spending all his Light Yagami from ''Manga/DeathNote''. He gets crazier with every passing episode [[spoiler: barring the time carving statues [[spoiler:of Kamina]] out he loses memory of stone. Luckily, he finally does a 180° flip.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Ichigo exhibited some Sanity Slippage [[spoiler:when his SuperPoweredEvilSide ''really'' flipped out and completely stomped Ulquiorra. Uryu tried to stop Ichigo from further slashing his body; he received a sword to the [[http://mangavolume.com/index.php?serie=bleach&chapter=bleach-353&page_nr=11 stomach]] for his trouble]].
* In ''Anime/RomeoXJuliet'', after witnessing [[spoiler:his father Titus's death]], [[spoiler:Mercutio]] quickly starts losing it. [[spoiler:And he ends up killing the murderer, Lord Montague, through quite the KarmicDeath.]]
* ''Manga/SoulEater'':
** Professor Stein goes completely insane as a result of Medusa's plans. [[spoiler:He got better]], but still the entire collection of scenes showing his descent into madness is creepy.
** Sort of applies to Soul Eater as well, [[spoiler:once he started using the black blood.]]
** The entire cast is constantly teetering on the edge of this trope. Madness functions as TheDarkSide in the ''Soul Eater'' universe, with characters falling into madness becoming evil and others resisting the temptation to madness. One of the major villains is someone who slipped so far into insanity that he became an EldritchAbomination.
** The manga-verse now holds that he's apparently insane because he's an EldritchAbomination personifying a kind of madness. Same point reveals that [[spoiler:Death the Kid]] is the next in line for slipping.



* Gyagu Manga Biyori has the tale of the son and father who wanted to hire a tutor (and chose her more for the sake of [[DirtyOldMan her looks]] than the help she would give), but take many days to realize that they were tricked (Of course, like everything else, it is [[ParodiedTrope done in such a way that you have to laugh]]). At first they just look depressed when she doesn't show up, then their hands start bleeding because they clench their fists so hard and are beating the walls... their explanation for her absence is that they don't have a welcoming enough feeling in their home. Cut to them dressed as clowns as the father keeps stabbing a rock-hard cake while shouting "She won't come!" several times, [[LaughingMad mixed with laughter]]... It becomes an InvertedTrope when they then grab a hold of themselves and they work their way to becoming pure levitating Buddhists.

First, he starts sparking anpan into the faces of random people, then starts seeing and hearing nothing but anpan, then finally snaps, with one of his log entries consisting of nothing but [[MadnessMantra "ANPANANPANANPANANPAN"]]. He never completely recovered from the incident, with him having random relapses in his insane behavior from time to time.
* In ''Anime/GregoryHorrorShow'', the HellHotel can only be found by people who have already begun to slip a little (the first guest [[spoiler:may have been going mad with boredom from his monotonous life,]] and the second guest [[spoiler:starts to slip when her best friend marries her ex-boyfriend]]). Prolonged exposure to it breaks the guests more and more. [[spoiler:Both protagonists have completely lost their sanity by the end of the series.]]

* The mother and father of sanity slippage: [[spoiler:Kars]] from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' ''Battle Tendency''. After attaining UltimateLifeForm status, he loses anything resembling sense. [[spoiler:And once he's thrown into space, he goes so insane ''his brain shuts down''.]]
* It is made fairly obvious that ''Anime/{{K}}'''s [[StalkerWithACrush Fushimi]] [[{{Yandere}} Saruhiko]] was not born AxCrazy. But because LoveMakesYouCrazy and Yata Misaki [[ObliviousToLove is pretty dense]] he starts resenting HOMRA and defects to SCEPTER 4 because [[AttentionWhore if Misaki hates him he will finally pay him some attention]]. Memory of Red and Days of Blue show clearly how much it pains him but even Misaki outright trying to figure this out did nothing to snap him out of it. It's rather tragic, especially when you see his PsychoticSmirk which, at the same time, is the happiest you'll ever see him.
* Koharu Mutsuki ''Manga/KoharuNoHibi'' acts more {{Yandere}} as the story progresses as a result of her love for Akira.
* ''Manga/MiraiNikki'': Yukiteru. [[AxCrazy Yuno]] doesn't count because that would imply that she was sane to begin with.

Before it's over, he's nearly killed several one-night stands and had several long conversations with the woman's ghost.
** Ken Hidaka doesn't fare much better: starting with the two-part OVA ''Verbrechen ~ Strafe'', he finds himself [[BloodKnight enjoying the act of killing]] more and more, goaded along by having to fake killing his teammates and having to ''actually'' [[KillTheOnesYouLove kill his girlfriend]] when she turns into a target. He manages to avoid falling so far as to start killing people on his own time, but in the RadioDrama ''Fight Fire With Fire,'' set after Weiss has been dissolved, he tries to convince Aya to become the new [[MissionControl Persia]] so that he'll have someone to tell him who he can kill.
