* Humans are this in the {{backstory}} to ''VideoGame/GalacticCivilizations''. Just as the Xendar... Oh wait, you can't. Why? Because they're all dead. Apparently, not long after humanity stupidly gave the hyperdrive secret to the other races, the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Drengin]] decided to get rid of humanity, whom they perceived to be a race of [[HumansAreDiplomats diplomats]]. Instead of attacking humanity directly, they found a warlike pre-spaceflight race called the Xendar. Quickly [[TechnologyUplift upgrading their tech]] to the galactic level, they unleashed them on humanity, expecting humans to try to talk their way out of it in vain. Instead, the Terran Alliance cranked up the military-industrial complex and beat the Xendar so hard, there are none left. After this, the humans put away their weapons and start talking peace again. The Drengin treat this event as evidence that humans are liars, talking peace while secretly planning for war.

* The Liir from ''SwordOfTheStars'' are mainly kind, understanding {{Actual Pacifist}}s. Until you piss them off. We'd call in the survivors of [[AbusivePrecursors the last race to piss off the Liir]] as witnesses to this, but none appear to be alive as the Liir wiped them off the face of the Galaxy ([[spoiler:although they appear to be back come the sequel]]). In-game, the Liir start out extremely positively towards all races except the Zuul and are very easy to placate as long as you keep the peace with them -- but if they first get annoyed enough at you to start a war, you'll never get them to back down again: They'll come at you until you or them are dead.

[[spoiler:Then the sequel rolls around, and we find out that the Suul'ka, the race that conquered the Liir and pushed them to this state of mind were their own crazed elders with powerful PsychicPowers. That's right, the AbusivePrecursors that everyone lives in fear of are the Liir themselves]].

* The partner character from ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' is a CheerfulChild of the highest caliber and while they are content to simply explore the world to fulfill their dream of map making, they are more than willing to stand up for and rescue anyone in danger, including the school bullies. But then come the second half of the game that piles on various traumas onto them, [[spoiler: followed by coming across one of Dark Matter's minions who turned their adoptive father into stone. They immediately beat him up almost to the point of unconsciousness.]]

* ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos'' has Lyude's finisher, Sforzando, which is based on this. The game describes it as Lyude "giving in to his rage, usually kept in check by rationale." What you see is Lyude leaping forward and viciously '''pistol-whipping''' his opponent so hard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tyZO5Kppu4 he actually staggers backwards when he's finished.]]

* The orcs from ''VideoGame/OrcAttackFlatulentRebellion'' were actually kindhearted beasts who lived in peace, until the humans showed up, polluted their land, and got all the orcs sick. They immediately went to arms and fought back against the humans as payback for ruining their ecosystem.

* Rick Taylor, protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Splatterhouse}}'', was just a HollywoodNerd with a good relationship with his girlfriend, Jennifer. Unexpectedly, in each game something comes to take her from him, leaving Rick to don the sentient [[ArtifactOfDoom Terror Mask]] to save her and leave everywhere in his wake splattered with blood. In the remake, the Terror Mask invokes this trope by telling him that [[BloodKnight he loves killing the demons as much as it does]]. While Rick at first denies this and is disgusted with the Mask's brutality, later on he doesn't deny it in the slightest. And judging by his [[FinishingMove Finishing Moves]], he is not a GentleGiant you would ever want to mess with.

* The Salt Hogs from ''VideoGame/{{Startopia}}'' are a race of salt-of-the-earth, porcine aliens with a hardy Protestant work ethic. As well as working your recycling plants and factories, they also all come armed. They get along with most other races very well ([[SlobsVersusSnobs except for those nasty, snobby]] [[FatBastard Polvakian Gem Slugs]]) and while they don't fight as well as [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Kasvagorians]], they do happen to be a ''[[ZergRush lot]]'' [[ZergRush cheaper to hire]] ''[[ZergRush en masse]]''. Their cultural version of Christmas apparently involves handing out a random selection of various non-lethal toxins to their kids alongside the more traditional gifts, to teach them that life isn't fair and they need to take the rough with the nice.

* SuperSmashBrothersBrawl showed that should the normally chivalrous but calm [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_m5AsTPaPw&NR=1 Link]] or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf5qQARxGm8&feature=related Mario]] mistake you for severely harming their beloved Zelda/Peach, you will either get a sword or fist plowed into your skull. They're Nintendo's main examples of GoodIsNotSoft for a VERY good reason.

** In ''Civilization V'', Gandhi is the easiest leader to befriend. However, if you get on his bad side (be a warmonger, attack him personally), he '''''will''''' nuke your civilization into so much radioactive dust. Someone poked around the data for the game, and found a 1-10 scale on how likely a leader is to use nukes. The most warlike leaders (Montezuma and Alexander the Great) ranked about 8. Gandhi has a special rating of ''12''.

Gandhi has a special rating of ''12''.''12''[[note]]scores above 10 get rounded down to 10 when the game starts, but there is a 2-step random factor for every score first to increase gameplay variation. Gandhi having 12 therefore means that while Montezuma or Alexander ''can'' be as nuke-happy as Gandhi, they can also be as low as 6, while AI Gandhi ''always'' is at 10[[/note]].
