** ''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.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Cinder's [[AmbitionIsEvil desire]] is to become strong, feared and powerful and she works for [[BigBad Salem]] because it gives her the opportunity to steal [[LegendFadesToMyth Maiden powers]]. While she only possesses half the [[ElementalPowers Fall Maiden's power]], she is able to [[TheHeavy execute]] Salem's plan for the destruction of [[ExtranormalInstitute Beacon Academy]] with great cunning, patience and adaptability, and obtains the Fall Maiden's full power. While recovering from [[AchillesHeel injuries inflicted]] by Ruby, she becomes increasingly intolerant of Salem's [[IControlMyMinionsThrough measured approach]] to pursuing her [[KillAllHumans goals]] and is warned by Salem to wait patiently for further power. Once unleashed to lead the infiltration of [[ExtranormalInstitute Haven Academy]], Cinder's leadership becomes increasingly [[SanitySlippage unstable]]. She revels in [[TheBully bullying]] others by flaunting her Maiden power and she watches the Spring Maiden's [[WeatherManipulation demonstration of power]] with an expression of undisguised lust; when Raven concludes that Cinder is [[FatalFlaw egomaniacal]], [[EvilGenius Watts]] agrees. [[spoiler:Cinder sacrifices caution and stealth for the chance to confront Ruby and uses the first opportunity she gets to try and steal the Spring Maiden's power for herself, revealing in the process that she's replaced her left arm with a Grimm arm that makes it easier for her to steal Maiden powers. As a result of her obsession, lack of patience and growing lust for power, she ruins Salem's plan; Haven Academy is rescued, the villains are forced to flee, and Cinder is cast into a bottomless abyss by the Spring Maiden.]]

** 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 (or, in-universe, spice).

A villain who is DrunkWithPower on TheDarkSide will show how "EvilFeelsGood", [[AGodAmI he has become a God]] and WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity, releasing waves or [[AgonyBeam bolts]] of dark power, or if they're powerful enough cause a deliberate "controlled" SuperPowerMeltdown that can become a SphereOfDestruction.

See also EvilIsHammy, in which simply being evil is what causes scenery-chewing, rather than being evil and powerful.

Compare DrunkWithPower, when it's authority-based power that goes to one's head. See also EvilIsHammy, in which simply being evil is what causes scenery-chewing, rather than being evil and powerful.

* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': Soon after training under [[WickedWitch Melinda]], Melissa saw knowledge as a sign of power, instead of a sign of enlightenment. She used her knowledge of TheDarkArts to carry out Melinda's evil bidding, but luckily Dylan and Alice gave her a change of heart.

* Albedo from ''Xenosaga'' [[spoiler:firing Proto Merkabah at Second Miltia]] is an example of this.
* ''RacingLagoon'' has Kyoji Nanba, [[NiceGuy the nicest guy you'll ever meet in the game,]] ends up looking like a zombie and speaking brokenly after he has taken drug and driven a monster-tuned car. [[spoiler:Right after that, he drives straight into a barrier and gets himself killed.]]

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': TheMaster in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]]. 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:Rassilon, 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.]]

* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'': Whereas Akuma uses the ''Satsui no Hadou'' (Surge of Murderous Intent) as a DangerousForbiddenTechnique while trying to keep the more negative tendencies of its use in check, Evil Ryu doesn't care and draws on it as much as possible, turning him a vindictively arrogant at best and outright murderous at worst BloodKnight. Oni is what would become of Akuma if he was as unrestrained as Evil Ryu when it comes to using the ''Satsui no Hadou'' and he is far worse about it than Evil Ryu ever was (promising nothing short of an OmnicidalManiac-level outcome).

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'': Sunset takes a few levels in psycho and [[EvilIsHammy hamminess]] when she finally gets the crown and is transformed by its magic. Prior to it, she was nasty but had some [[EvenEvilHasStandards standards]] and operated on a more rational level. She confirms in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames Friendship Games]] that the power of the crown was so great that it overwhelmed her. [[spoiler:The climactic fight with Midnight Sparkle has her able to control the magic she's using that time around, instead of this happening.]]
** This is pretty common overall. Princess Luna also ramps up her (already considerable) hamminess as Nightmare Moon, and Midnight Sparkle takes a shy, awkward girl and turns her into someone who could give Darth Sidious a run for his money.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has this happen with [[RivalTurnedEvil Trixie]] while wearing [[ArtifactOfDoom the Alicorn Amulet]] in the season 3 episode "Magic Duel". She was a pretty LargeHam to begin with, and the Amulet not only drastically increased her power but corrupted her mind. In this case, it's reversible because all it takes is removing the Amulet and giving her a bit of time to come off the high.
