* A vote for the most terrifying transformation to fury is Creator/ToshiroMifune's moment in ''FilmSamuraiRebellion''. After his captured daughter-in-law kills herself to save her husband, resulting in the son attacking and dying before his eyes, Sasahara's face bloats with rage and he turns to the attackers and kills them all in less than 20 seconds.

* Speaking of Franchise/JamesBond, he accepts the violent deaths of those in the world of espionage as a fact of life; but when innocent people end up getting killed as collateral (like Felix Leiter's wife Delia from ''LicenceToKill''), on the other hand, that's when you find yourself on his bad side. And as Sanchez, the BigBad of that film, soon finds out, Bond's bad side is a dangerous place to be.

* Speaking of Franchise/JamesBond, he primarily views death as part of the job when it comes to the espionage business. But when innocent people get killed as collateral, like Felix Leiter's wife Delia from ''Film/LicenceToKill'', that's when whoever's responsible winds up on his bad side. And as Sanchez, the bad guy who ordered this, learns the hard way during the course of the movie, Bond's bad side is a dangerous place to be.

** If you're a henchman working for Ernst Stavro Blofeld and SPECTRE, do ''[[YouHaveFailedMe not]]'' '''[[YouHaveFailedMe fail]]''' '''''[[YouHaveFailedMe to complete]]''''' '''''[[YouHaveFailedMe YOUR TASKS]]''''' failure to please him ''[[YouHaveFailedMe is an automatic death sentence]]''. Blofeld runs [[NebulousEvilOrganization SPECTRE]] like a tyrannical dictator he demands absolute and unquestionable loyalty from his minions, rarely gives them a second chance, and wouldn't hesitate to kill anyone [[YouHaveFailedMe who fails]], [[EvenEvilHasStandards crosses certain moral boundaries]], [[DefectorFromDecadence defects from SPECTRE]], or [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder plans to cheat him]]. Fail your tasks? [[Film/FromRussiaWithLove Get a poisoned dagger to your leg.]] Dare to question Blofeld? [[Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice Get thrown into a piranha-infested water pool.]] Thinking of cheating him or cross certain moral boundaries? [[Film/{{Thunderball}} Get zapped in]] [[Literature/{{Thunderball}} an electric chair]]. Dare to defect from SPECTRE? ''[[Film/{{Spectre}} A goon squad will be sent to hunt you down]] [[TheDeterminator no matter where you're hiding or located.]]'' Organizational discipline within SPECTRE is extremely harsh and notoriously draconian, and to heighten the impact of those who fail him, he often uses the BlofeldPloy to scare a random but innocent mook, only to suddenly kill the actual target when the supposed one is off-guard.

* In ''Disney/BigHero6'', Hiro snaps and makes Baymax [[spoiler:into a killing machine]] when Yokai/[[spoiler:Callaghan]] said that [[spoiler:Tadashi]]'s death was their own fault.
** Yokai didn't take it well when [[spoiler:Krei]] called [[spoiler:his daughter's death]] a "setback".
** Mr. Yama [[EvenEvilHasStandards may be a participant in illegal bot fighting]], but he ''hates'' hustlers in his line of work. [[WouldHurtAChild Even if said hustler is only fourteen]].

Mr. Yama [[EvenEvilHasStandards may be a participant in illegal bot fighting]], but he ''hates'' hustlers in his line of work. [[WouldHurtAChild Even if said hustler is only fourteen]].



** Ursula does not take kindly to seeing her pet eels Flotsam and Jetsam getting harmed.



* This gem of a line from ''Film/ThreeHundred:''
-->'''Leonidas:''' You bring the crowns and heads of conquered kings to ''my'' city's steps! You insult ''my queen.'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkWS9PiXekE You threaten my people with SLAVERY and DEATH!]] Oh, I've chosen my words carefully, Persian. Perhaps [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor you should have done the same.]]



** Harming animals is, naturally, a big one for Ace... unless they're bats.



** Don't insult Wes's mother, she's a saint!



** If you're harming Lorraine and George gives you the chance to back off, take it. If not...



* Let's just say that harming a child whenever Franchise/{{Gamera}} is around may just very well be the last thing you'll ever do.



** Also, never insult your [[TheDragon Dragon's]] wife, as the leader of KAOS learned the hard way when he insulted his wife one time too many and ended up being punched out of his car hard enough to be knocked over a bridge.



* She may be the most [[GentleGiant peaceful monster]] in the Toho universe, but it's still a '''very''' bad idea to harm [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Mothra's]] children or the Shobijin (the [[CreepyTwins two fairies she protects]]).
** Likewise, even though he's already got a rather violent temper, Godzilla himself tends to go into UnstoppableRage mode whenever anything tries to harm his son.



* ''Film/GoodWillHunting'': Sean Maguire may be able to take a lot of crap from the titular InsufferableGenius for the sake of trying to improve his life (and even then, not without some snarking), but the moment Will insults Sean's deceased wife to try to make him RageQuit, Sean grabs Will and slams his head against the nearest wall instead.
-->'''Sean''': You insult my wife ever again, and I will ''end'' you.



* If Film/JamesBond doesn't abuse his license to kill after you've harmed someone among his family or friends, you had ''seriously'' better be grateful.



* ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'': If you know what's good for you, it's never a good idea to insult Morris Day or his band The Time in front of Jay.



** In ''Film/IronMan3'', Tony does ''not'' take the harming of his loved-ones maturely or even ''intelligently''. Also, break stuff and die, as a {{Mook}} who smashed his friend Harley's sister's watch found out the hard way.



* In ''Film/MeetTheFeebles'', Heidi's berserk button is Samantha, Bletch's secret mistress. During their 1st encounter, after Samantha insults her and says Bletch doesn't love her, she calls Samantha a pussy (she is a cat, after all), and throws her in a box. In their 2nd encounter, while Heidi is trying to commit suicide by machine gun, Samantha tells her NotWithTheSafetyOnYouWont, and begins to leave. [[spoiler:Heidi turns the gun on Samantha and kills her, starting Heidi on a murderous massacre]].



* [[Film/PitchBlack Richard B. Riddick]] is already a psychopathic serial killer as it, but if you dare to even ''suggest'' harm towards children....Well, enjoy your death in record time.



* Jamal Malik of ''Film/SlumdogMillionaire'' remains calm, friendly, sweet and honest throughout most of the film. He even retains his composure while the Indian police are ''torturing'' him. However, if someone insults or harms Latika, the girl he loves, he becomes a whirling flurry of fists and angry directed at the source of the transgression.
