-> "We psychoanalysts never use the crude term 'crazy'. You may merely suffer from Type 3 Psychomanic Derangement, which ''presents'' as craziness."
-->-- '''Dr. Klaus Angstrom''', ''Webcomic/{{Broodhollow}}''

Any tropes involving madness or insanity. Except those dealing with HollywoodPsych.

These can run the gamut from the weird but generally happy chaos that inhabits the Cloudcuckoolander's mind to the darkest corners of a person's shattered psyche.
