** It's part and parcel of a Sith's power in the first place -- as opposed to the Jedi, who control the Force through serenity and self-discipline, a Sith unleashes it through raw, destructive emotion -- and as such, even a normally self-controlled Sith like the Emperor will go straight to LargeHam mode when using his powers. Add to this the chronic [[ProperlyParanoid justified paranoia]] about everyone around you due to their ChronicBackstabbingDisorder and KlingonPromotion as standard operating procedure. This also explains a lot as to why almost ''every'' Sith in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse acts (and [[EvilMakesYouUgly looks]]) like they snorted a mountain of cocaine.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', [[spoiler: Tosen]] goes ''absolutely insane'' after he realizes [[spoiler:his [[BecomeYourWeapon Resurreccion]] gives [[BlindWeaponmaster him]] eyesight]]. More than he already was, anyway.
** And [[spoiler: Aizen]] has gone off the deep end as well, doing incredibly dickish things for no reason except that he can, and loses it not once, but twice, [[spoiler: when Gin succeeds in killing him and when he discovers Ichigo's more powerful than him now.]] Yes, that's in the correct order.

* During the Paramount War in ''Manga/OnePiece'', Blackbeard [[spoiler: stole the Tremor-Tremor Fruit from Whitebeard's body]] and goes off the rails, threatening to destroy the island of Marineford, kill everybody, etc. [[spoiler: It takes the arrival of Shanks to sober him, but it's likely a temporary solution for now at that]].
* In ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar'', the evil magician Wagnard becomes even ''more'' megalomaniacal by the final episode, cackling with mad glee as he blasts at Parn and Ashram with his magic from his scepter [[spoiler: until Ashram eventually kills him. Even so, he gets to have one last bit of scenery to chew on as he screams, "All Lodoss is doomed! Hahahahaha! Nothing will remain! NOTHING! Hahahahahahaha!"]]
* Sasuke Uchiha from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' initially wants power to surpass his treacherous brother [[AloofBigBrother Itachi]], but with time, he spirals dangerously out of control. Too much exposure to evil and MindRape twisted him into an AxCrazy lunatic- learning Itachi [[spoiler: pretended to be a villain so his brother would kill him to atone for slaying his clan, but actually still loved him]] was what made him crack. Now, he's to the point where he wants his [[KillEmAll whole village wiped out.]] Unless... his [[spoiler: revived brother can convince him otherwise...]]
** [[spoiler: Turns out it just made him more convinced to destroy the village.]]
*** [[spoiler: But ''now'', after having spoken with all four Reanimated Hokage brought back by [[BackFromTheDead Orochimaru]], he's gone to [[HeelFaceTurn help the Shinobi Alliance]] in the war, and even expressed a desire to become Hokage himself to stop the ninja system that ruined Itachi's life. [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor What]].]]
*** [[spoiler: And then it turns out that what he ''meant'' when he said that was that he was going to pull a ZeroApprovalGambit and get the ninja world to unite against him. He seals away the Tailed Beasts and the climactic fight of the series is Naruto beating some sense into him.]]
* ''Anime/CardfightVanguard'': [[spoiler: Aichi Sendou]] goes from ShrinkingViolet, [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Shy Blue Haired Guy]] protagonist to a (possibly) mentally unstable kid desperate to be acknowledged as strong once he's hooked on [[PsychicPowers Psyqualia]]. So much so that he abandons the very card that means the world to him in favour of the clan's EvilCounterpart. He manages to get over it, but once he faces [[BigBad Ren]], whose pretty [[NotSoDifferent much the same]], Psyqualia takes hold again and even develops his own EvilLaugh.

And then finally when they try to fight the BigBad, an EvilSorceror that ''technically'' has less power, but is more than equal and is much more proficient in its use where it matters, they get stomped and lose all of that power. Though while the end result was far short of what the character imagined, they still managed to achieve a couple important things - and could have done more if not for the power-drunk rampage.

** Is it any wonder this is [[Creator/FrankLangella the actor's]] favorite role?



* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** [[BigBad Palpatine]] really tears into Mace Windu with the Force lightning in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith''.
** He later (InUniverse) pulls a repeat performance on Luke in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.
** Being drunk on the Dark Side is considered [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dun_Moch a legitimate strategy among the Sith as a whole]].
** It's part and parcel of a Sith's power in the first place -- as opposed to the Jedi, who control the Force through serenity and self-discipline, a Sith unleashes it through raw, destructive emotion -- and as such, even a normally self-controlled Sith like the Emperor will go straight to LargeHam mode when using his powers. Add to this the chronic [[ProperlyParanoid justified paranoia]] about everyone around you due to their ChronicBackstabbingDisorder and KlingonPromotion as standard operating procedure. This also explains a lot as to why almost ''every'' Sith in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse acts (and [[EvilMakesYouUgly looks]]) like they snorted a mountain of cocaine.
* In ''Film/TheWolverine'', when Ichirō starts to [[spoiler:age back through sucking Wolverine's powers, he laughs like a lunatic.]]
* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Professor X enters a deep trance when [[spoiler:Apocalypse possesses his mind through Cerebro]]. Xavier is so overwhelmed and mesmerized by the plethora of god-like abilities that he comes into direct contact with ("I've never felt power like this before") that he initially doesn't resist the invasion, and he's temporarily corrupted by it (hence his BlackEyesOfEvil). It's only when Hank tries to remove the Cerebro helmet that Charles snaps out of the daze (which results in him regaining his normal eye colour) and attempts to fight off his attacker. While under [[spoiler:Apocalypse's control]], Professor X is in a calm state (the drug-like high), but the moment he struggles to break free, he's constantly ''screaming'' in agony (the withdrawal)--EvilFeelsGood, in other words, even for an AllLovingHero like Xavier.



* In ''[[Literature/AnnalsOfTheWesternShore Gifts]]'', the Caspro family legend of Blind Caddard ends this way. Although he learned to control his power, in his old age he starts unmaking anything and everything that pisses him off even slightly. He eventually has a HeelRealization and uses a mirror to unmake his own eyes.

* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'': Phoebe, in the S6 episode "Witch Wars", where she gets a crap-ton of demonic powers and promptly goes on a demon murder spree. [[EvilFeelsGood And she enjoys it]]. Of course, she had been going though active power withdrawal for some time and it ''was'' completely awesome but you can kind of see why the PowersThatBe [[BroughtDownToNormal depowered her]] in the first place...

He gets resurrected, is constantly hungry (to the point where he devour an ''entire turkey'' in mere seconds), transforms nearly every human on Earth into a clone of himself (which gets undone via ResetButton), keeps talking about the drums in his head, has many [[HoYay homoerotic]] [[FoeYay moments]] with The Doctor, and is last seen attacking [[spoiler: the Lord President of the Time Lords]] while chewing all of the scenery in sight, right before [[spoiler: he gets pulled into the Last Great Time War with the other Time Lords and Gallifrey.]]
* ''Series/OnceUponATime'': The longer [[EvilIsHammy Rumplestiltskin]] has his powers, the [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity worse]] he gets, especially after he loses his MoralityPet son. (While Mr. Gold, Rumple's depowered human Storybrooke counterpart, remembers who he is, he is much calmer and in control of himself than his fairy tale self.)
