* RemonstratingWithAGun: A famous example with the Whammyburger scene. Subverted in that he ''is'' a maniac; Michael Douglas' character uses the opportunity to make [[spoiler: a stand against the fifth or sixth trivial thing that has pissed him off that day]]..

** Foster as well, but with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold a heart of gold]] to some extent. [[spoiler: He had a short temper when dealing with his wife and their daughter, and shortly before his rampage, got to the point where his mom not finishing her food at the dinner table was enough to invoke a rage-filled DeathGlare]]. He also makes a couple rude remarks about the store owner's admittedly bad english, asking if they [[AllAsiansAreChinese don't have "V"'s in China.]] But his issues are linked with anger instead of malice.
