* In ''Film/FiveHundredDaysOfSummer'', the main plot of the film is to see how Tom Hansen is handling his breakup with Summer Finn, and looking back to see what he did wrong. He... doesn't take it well.



* ''Film/AssassinsCreed2016'': Aguilar has a brief funk when [[spoiler: Maria dies during their final mission.]]



* The German film ''Film/LaColonia'', features a scene where the male protagonist searches the underground tunnels of the cult compound for a means to escape.

** While not quite as severe as other examples, David hits rock bottom when the military launches a nuke against the aliens, against his wishes, and fails. He gets drunk and makes a mess of the place until his father is able to calm him down and inadvertently provide an idea on how to defeat the aliens.

** Hiller also has one shortly after arriving in Area51. After Withmore leaves the control room to see the alien Hiller captured, Hiller tells General Gray that he wants to be transfered back to El Toro as soon as possible, only for Gray to tell him that El Toro was destroyed. It hits Hiller hard because, not only was the base his home away from home, but [[spoiler: he told his girlfriend Jazmine to go there with Dylan, his stepson.]]

* Sarah Connor Blue Screens in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' upon seeing a Terminator very much identical to the one that persistently tried to kill her in the previous film. Complete with slow motion, deer in the headlights look, and catatonia, which contrasts nicely with her put-on catatonia earlier in the day after she's shown photos of the Terminator walking around a shopping mall. She couldn't even fight back the orderlies who are subduing her - the same orderlies who were getting their asses kicked by her a few minutes ago. She has another later in the film when she looks into Miles Dyson's terrified face and can't bring herself to kill him. She realizes then that ''she's'' become a Terminator.

** Between Episodes VI (''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'') and VII (''Film/TheForceAwakens''), Luke seems to be suffering a huge one after his nephew, Kylo Ren,destroyed his new Jedi Order after he turned to the Dark Side of the Force and wiped out most, if not all, his other students. Blaming himself over what happened, Luke soon went into hiding, totally severing contact with his friends and relatives, seemingly resigned to be the last Jedi once more. Only time will tell if he snaps out of it during the events of Episode VIII: ''Film/TheLastJedi''.

Blaming himself over what happened, Luke soon went into hiding, totally severing contact with his friends and relatives, seemingly resigned to be the last Jedi once more. (Han, however, implies that there is another unknown reason why he disappeared, as he states that the people who knew him best think that he went to find the first Jedi temple, and seems to have trusted his location to R2-D2 and Lor San Tekka -- as they both hold two separate pieces of the map to his location.) Only time will tell us what happened and if he snaps he'll snap out of it during the events of Episode VIII: ''Film/TheLastJedi''.

** In Disney's ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'', Basil snaps after falling for Ratigan's EvilPlan, silently and stoically sits through the ToThePain lecture, and just waits for the DeathTrap to go off, feeling completely humiliated, outwitted, and defeated. Since this is a family film, he gets better.
-->'''Dawson''': Dash it all, Basil! The queen's in danger, Olivia's counting on us, we're about to be horribly splatted, and all you can do is lie there feeling sorry for yourself!
** [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast The Beast]] has a near suicidal moment after he lets Belle return to her father.
