* There's a Creator/RayBradbury short story, ''No Particular Night or Morning'', built around this concept. Joseph Hitchcock, an astronaut on a deep space mission becomes convinced that his past life on Earth was merely a dream or fantasy, including his past experiences with his wife and son. He takes it to the illogical conclusion, [[NoObjectPermanence refusing to believe that anything not right in front of him exists]], including moments, objects, persons and even his younger self. Despite Clemens, a friend, trying to keep him grounded, he ultimately GoesMadFromTheRevelation [[spoiler: and leaves the ship in a spacesuit, now wandering in space until his unevitable death]].

* Philosopher Creator/BertrandRussell once made the following quip regarding solipsism:
-->“As against solipsism it is to be said, in the first place, that it is psychologically impossible to believe, and is rejected in fact even by those who mean to accept it. I once received a letter from an eminent logician, Mrs. Christine Ladd-Franklin, saying that she was a solipsist, and was surprised that there were no others. Coming from a logician and a solipsist, her surprise surprised me.”

-->'''Satan''': Life itself is only a vision; A dream. Nothing exists, but an empty space and you. And you are but a thought.

* Aten in ''TabletopGame/{{Scion}}'' is thoroughly convinced that nothing else in reality exists but as a fragment of his consciousness. As he's the avatar of a Greater Titan, this means he is effectively indestructible unless convinced he's ''not''. This extends to his goals - he wants everything that exists to worship him, and if that fails, he's willing to have his followers blow themselves up. He's also Akhenaten's only avatar, which helps to reinforce this view - he absorbed all of the others.
