* By the time of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', the prosecutors have realized that four games worth of already insane acts have put them in this situation via in-universe DarknessInducedAudienceApathy. As a result, they can do even more crazy stuff to win because nobody cares at that point.

The term was created by commentator [[Creator/TheSportsGuy Bill Simmons]] in "honor" of heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson.

[[Film/TheHangover (Also a tiger, apparently.)]] Even before boxing.[[/note]] And yes, Tyson did ''all'' of these things ''and more''.

* The ''entire genre'' of VisualKei (especially in its original iteration of Visual Shock) was and is about ''intentionally entering this'' with one's persona, one's band's image, and sometimes even one's own personal life. Some artists have been ''especially'' good at it (although, sadly, some of the best at it became so ''due'' to mental health or alcohol and drug problems...).

* Music/AliceCooper did an interview where he said maybe 30% of the stories about him ,Music/OzzyOsbourne and Music/MarilynManson are true, then said '''EVERY''' story ever told about [[Music/TheWho Keith Moon]] is true, but people have only heard about 30% of them.

* ''FanFic/OldManHenderson'' shows how this trope can be weaponized in tabletop games; the creator of the titular character gave him a [[ExpansionPackPast ridiculously thorough]] [[DoorStopper 300-something page backstory]] to justify Henderson having an absurd GameBreaker skill set. His skills were so outrageous and his backstory so impenetrable that the DM and other players began believing anything the creator made up about Henderson, figuring that the justification was probably buried somewhere in the backstory. Henderson ended up using this to hijack a helicopter during a key moment; he had zero skill or experience with flying and should've died in the attempt, but the DM was too exasperated to read anymore of Henderson's character sheet and just let it happen.

** Harry himself develops a reputation at Hogwarts for being able to do ''anything'' with his trademark finger snap, but that comes to bite him in the ass when [[spoiler:Lesath Lestrange, certain that he can do anything, ''went on his knees and begged Harry to release his mother Bellatrix Black from Azkaban'']]. He makes sure that The Daily Prophet releases absolutely ridiculous rumors about him, ''so that no one ever believes what the papers say about him anymore''. He [[spoiler:scares a Dementor in front of the Wizengamot]], and they take it in stride, because he's The Boy-Who-Lived and it fits story logic. [[OnlySaneMan Well, ''most'' of them do]].

* Over the course of ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'', [[TokenEvilTeammate Whirl]] acts so bizarre and outrageous that the rest of the crew stops being able to tell whether or not any act he claims to have done or opinion he expresses is for real. Any accusation or claim about him is treated as semi-plausible, no matter how ridiculous, simply because it's Whirl. It doesn't help that Whirl also has [[EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor a really warped sense of humor]].
