* In the opening level of ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'', a plan of attack is drawn up on a white board. Duke can draw or write anything they like on said board, and no matter what he puts there, a nearby soldier is absolutely blown away.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRogue'', the first NPC you meet in the tutorial is so impressed by your ability to do things like open doors and use lockpicks on locked doors that he ''literally explodes.''


Added DiffLines:

* At one point in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', Kat and Annie are in the ether attempt to free a spirit from imprisonment. Due to the differences in how the two perceive the ether, Annie sees a seemingly infinite maze filled with inscrutable machinery and guarded by a fiery wraith, while Kat simply sees the spirit in a small room wearing handcuffs. When they decide to try having Kat pick the lock on the handcuffs, Annie is amazed and can't even describe what she sees when Kat simply [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1763 inserts the picks into the lock]], before even attempting to pick it.

Added DiffLines:

** Patchy the Pirate does this in "The Sponge Who Could Fly", where he reacts to the lost episode of ''[=SpongeBob=] [=SquarePants=]'' being a clip of walk cycles by angrily knocking over all of his [=SpongeBob=] merchandise and declaring that he will run away. As soon as the ''real'' lost episode starts playing and his parrot Potty informs him that there's more, the scene of Patchy's tantrum is humorously played in reverse.

* LetsPlay/ProtonJon of LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys lapsed into this a few times during their LP of MarioParty. The highlight of these was a long chain of screaming ''"GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME!!"'' whenever something didn't go his way. See it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcGgA2OnsV0 here]].

** Comical overreacting to little things is Rarity's stock in trade. Generally, just the little things, though.

** Comical overreacting to little things is Rarity's stock in trade. Generally, just the little things, though. In "Lesson Zero", she loses a spool of ribbon she needs for her latest fashion project, and declares it [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "The! Worst! Possible! THING!"]]; she later in the episode says the same thing about forgetting to bring the plates to a picnic.
