** When Luffy punches a World Noble named Charlos for shooting Hachi, Charlos's father calls in the Marines, including Admiral Kizaru, to the island, and then declares his intention to starve the men of the crew to death while working them as slaves and have the women stuffed, overlapping this with KnightTemplarParent and MoralMyopia.
*** Before that, Charlos kicked over a wounded man who was being transported to a hospital and shot one of the paramedics carrying him because they ''dared'' to not bow before him as he walked by. If that wasn't bad enough, he kidnaps the wife of the man because he found her pretty and wanted her to be his wife...Yeah.

MoralMyopia. Before that, Charlos kicked over a wounded man who was being transported to a hospital and shot one of the paramedics carrying him because they ''dared'' to not bow before him as he walked by. If that wasn't bad enough, he kidnaps the wife of the man because he found her pretty and wanted her to be his wife...Yeah. (The World Nobles seem to exist for little reason than to show the asshole nature of the guys in charge of the World Government.)



* ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'''s Harley comes in seemingly innocent in his debut episode and acts all nice to May, a fellow competitor. Then, May makes a few innocent comments (calling his Cacturne scary and saying that his cookies aren't half bad), which causes him to apparently change his goal in life to humiliating her at every contest that they participate in.
** It's even worse in Japanese, where his reaction is to her ''VerbalTic''.
** He acts as something of a borderline parody of the trope, continuously trying to destroy May throughout the show for minor slights like beating him in a battle. In a later episode he finally reveals the deepest reason for his raging vendetta, that being, as a kid he once got part of his meal stolen by ''a girl who kind of looks like her'' and even that may have been made up.

** No mention of Paul, who feels the best way to prove himself a better trainer than his brother (who lost to Pyramid King Brandon in a CurbStompBattle) is to crush the morale of everything he can possibly reach?
** James has shades of this. He ''really'' likes his bottle cap collection. When it had been (accidentally) stolen by a trash-collecting robot, he tried to ''steal the Sunnyshore Tower''. In other words, he tried to '''steal a bloody skyscraper'''. What truly seals the craziness is that that ''was'' Team Rocket's evil-plan-of-the-week...and Jessie and Meowth were ''still'' freaked out at James' sudden gung-ho attitude!
*** One that doubles as BewareTheNiceOnes: One episode saw a pack of baby Pokemon (including James' own Mime Jr.) in danger. James [[PetTheDog agreed to help out almost immediately]]--and he reacted...violently when Jessie and Meowth refused to help. Both of the above instances happened ''before'' Team Rocket TookALevelInBadass.

* [[spoiler: Izaya]] from ''{{Literature/Durarara}}'' surprisingly shows signs of this as of volume 9. [[spoiler: To put it simply, in middle school, a student named Nakura tried to stab him for losing a bet that he put his money into Izaya. [[MoralityPet Shinra]] steps in trying to calm the situation and only gets stabbed as a result for protecting Izaya. Nakura flees the scene and all Izaya can do is panic as Shinra is bleeding. However, Shinra [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction says the wound isn't serious]] and to call the ambulance. [[TakingTheHeat Izaya does but then tells]] [[SilentScapegoat Shinra to change the story of Izaya being the stabber instead of Nakura.]] [[KickTheMoralityPet This makes him appear to be an asshole who hurt his only friend.]] However, [[{{Yandere}} Izaya does this because he swears]] [[ThisIsUnforgivable that Nakura will ''never'' get away with it.]] ''EVER!'' So what does he do after that? He stalks Nakura ever since that incident and keeping tabs on him. He makes sure Nakura isn't suspecting him but then at the very end of volume nine after 7-10 years of planning, Izaya finally gets his revenge by framing him for two huge crimes where the bosses of those organizations want him dead. And Izaya makes sure to tell that to him over the phone before hanging up and leaving Nakura miserable for the rest of his life. Because of this incident though, it's hinted that Izaya's entire reason for becoming an information broker is because of Shinra who was the only person that cared for him.]]

** Mr. Heart really, ''really'' hates the sight of his own blood. If you make him bleed, even if it's just an accidentally-made tiny little scratch, you can expect yourself and everyone within arm's reach to die horribly.

** Aoba set his brother [[spoiler: Izumii's]] room on fire so he could get in trouble for smoking and get beaten by their [[AbusiveParents abusive father]], [[BigBrotherBully just because he hit him a few times]]. [[spoiler: Izumii]], however, isn't completely innocent either, since the reason he hit Aoba was because he's under the delusion that he's TheUnfavorite, but risking the possibility of burning their house down and subjecting him to child abuse just to get back at him seem like massive overkill.

*** [[spoiler:Played straight with Doflamingo's actual motives for his activities as a pirate -- which seems to be par for course for the Celestial Dragons. Doflamingo's father apparently grew tired of the decadence of Mariejois, and decided to forfeit the family's titles as World Nobles in attempt to live the normal, commoner life. Doflamingo ''despised'' this decision, so use to the broken privileges bestowed upon the descendants of the twenty kings who found the World Government, and eventually ended up ''killing him'' two years after his mother died by illness -- something he blamed on their commoner lifestyle. However, when he and his brother attempted to return to Mariejois, the World Nobles rejected their plea, considering them to be a part of a "family of traitors". Doflamingo, angered by this decision, swore to destroy '''''the entire world they lorded over''''' in retaliation. His behavior is more or less alike to that of a [[SpoiledBrat spoiled child]] who didn't get what he or she wanted -- so pathetic, that the ''only'' reason why he's such a threat is because he's downright ''[[PsychopathicManChild psychotic]]''.]]

** Also, Luffy and blackbeard could have [[NotSoDifferent been the best of friends]], had not a fight between them started [[EstablishingCharacterMoment the day they met]] when each insulted the other's favorite food. (Luffy didn't like the brand of cherry pie the store had, Blackbeard wasn't a fan of well-done meat; both got annoyed at the other's complaining, and a fight started.) While many other factors contributed to them being [[ArchEnemy sworn enemies]], this likely started it.

* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', Sigurd, encountering Leafa in the Sylph capital of Swilvane in Alfheim Online, complains about her leaving his party, even though the agreement was supposed to allow her to come and go as she pleased. When Leafa's new companion Kirito stands up for her, Sigurd, enraged by him "stealing" Leafa, threatens to kill him[[note]]Unlike Sword Art Online, death in Alfheim Online doesn't kill the player, but comes with a steep EXP penalty[[/note]]- since Kirito, a Spriggan, is in another race's capital, he can't fight back. Luckily for Kirito, [[PragmaticVillainy one of Sigurd's underlings tells him that it's not a good idea to kill someone who can't fight back while others are around]].

** The case: Ryoga has hit Ranma with a [[LovePotion Koi Rod of Love]], causing Ranma to become increasingly infatuated with Ryoga, and then roughly stripped Ranma to check for the telltale mark of the rod. The crime: Ranma has, as per the koi rod's effects, become infatuated with Ryoga and mentions Ryoga's previous stripping of herself when Ryoga roughly rebuffs her advances, causing him to become upset and tell her off. The response: Ranma turns back into a male and pulls the "typical outraged female" act in the series, beating Ryoga up.
*** Subcrime: Ranma grows steadily more enamored with Ryoga. The response: Ryoga bundles the sleeping Ranma up in a bag and wanders off into the woods, digging a grave and getting ready to kill Ranma and bury the body here so Ryoga can both be free of Ranma's flirtations and have Akane to himself.
** The case: when Ranma reveals the magic of the Koi Rod is so strong that she can only think IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy and will let Ryoga kill her if that's what he wants, Ryoga hesitates. The crime: Ranma takes Ryoga's hesitation to deliver the death blow as a sign of affection and gently kisses him. The response: Ryoga resumes trying to kill Ranma.

school's lunch store (and this wasn't even technically Ranma's flirtations fault: due to Ryoga having NoSenseOfDirection, he would always arrive just too late to buy any food), and have then Ranma "no-showed" when Ryoga challenged him to a duel (it was actually ''Ryoga'' who no-showed due to the aforementioned directional issues) and their relationship has only deteriorated since, the two of them at odds unless Akane to himself.
