** Sonja, Quagmire's ex-girlfriend from the season 12 episode ''Quagmire's Quagmire'' was also one of these. She humiliates Quagmire in public, beats him over the head and puts him in the trunk of his car, fully intending on making him into her sex slave.

** In one episode Stewie abducts the cast of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' after he's unable to get his questions about the show answered at a convention. After he kills Denise Crosby to make sure they don't try anything funny, he spends the day with them, only they turn out to be totally annoying and demanding. By the end of his time with them, he's announced that they've ruined ''Next Generation'' for him and he hopes they all die. AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: One could argue that the cast were acting this way on purpose, seeing as how he killed Denise, they probably figured that by acting utterly annoying he'd grow sick of them and send them home. Counts as either a BatmanGambit or ThanatosGambit, because if such was the case, there was just as much chance he'd kill them if they annoyed him too much..

* MortalityPhobia:
** After getting hit by Peter's car as he's backing out of the driveway, and Lois inconsiderately reminds the family just how old he is, Brian takes to drinking his worries away because he knows that everyone can just randomly die at any moment. The combined efforts of Stewie and Frank Sinatra Jr. help him overcome his worries once and for all.
** "Mom's the Word" has Stewie frightened by the prospect of him dying someday, and when Brian tells him he believes that there's nothing in the afterlife (being an atheist and all), [[DrivenToSuicide he tries to kill himself]]. After several failed attempts at suicide, Brian convinces him to make his life worthwhile and fulfill his dreams, and Stewie decides to try stand-up comedy, but his act bombs and Brian tells him to kill himself.

* MouthingTheProfanity:
** In one episode, Stewie mouths "fuck you" to Brian. Brian was able to read his lips and threatens to tell Lois on him. Stewie then tries to tell Brian he was really saying "vacuum".
** In a crossover episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'', Peter tries to avoid Cleveland, and is eventually caught in his car. The car is closed, with the windows up, so whether Peter says or mouths the word 'fuck', it's not audible.

** JerkassBall: Every character has moments as one based on Rule of Funny in later seasons. Even Lois and Brian, who by default are somewhat straight-faced and fairly empathetic characters, can become selfish, vindictive, and outright sociopathic jerks if it helps with the shock value comedy.
