** In ''Stardust Crusaders'', DIO first stalls for time until the sun has set so the Joestars cannot exploit his [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampiric]] weakness to sunlight. Then, after a CarChase [[ItAmusedMe for shits and giggles]], he becomes a NoNonsenseNemesis, mercilessly killing [[WeakButSkilled Kakyoin]] by punching a hole straight through him and leaving [[GuileHero Joseph]] on the brink of death with a knife through his neck. When he realizes that [[TheHero Jotaro]] has the same TimeStandsStill powers as him, he ditches the straight-forward No-Nonsense stuff and becomes DangerouslyGenreSavvy instead. And then... he drains Joseph's blood... and becomes so high on his newfound powers that he might as well have drained the VillainBall...

****[[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.

* The villains of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' have a habit of going on a power trip just minutes before they're defeated.
** In ''Battle Tendency'', Kars finally succeeds with his aspiration of becoming the UltimateLifeForm and goes on a [[ThePowerOfTheSun Hamon]]-fueled rampage that's so extreme that he triggers an immense volcanic eruption that flings him out into space where none of his powers are able to save him and [[AndIMustScream his immortality dooms him to drift through the empty void until the day he stops thinking.]]

* ''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.

* ComicBook/{{Magneto}} tends to become pretty hammy and nuts whenever he goes full throttle with his powers. Then again, he commands absolute power over one of the four fundamental forces of the universe. That would give just about anyone a rush.

Contrast ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil, where the villain's mental processes are equally affected, but not in a fun way. The drug metaphor sometimes breaks down here, as villains will start out experiencing ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil, then proceed to become DrunkOnTheDarkSide when their humanity degrades to the point that they stop fighting it. (With drugs, you normally lead off with the carefree intoxication part, while the soul-crushing addiction part comes later.)
