* This happens a ''lot'' in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', usually when the OnlySaneMan of the hour loses their patience with TheDitz. But for specific examples;
* Agent Carolina's interactions with the Reds and Blues in Season 10; her impatience to find and kill the ex-Director of Project Freelancer, combined with the teams' usual ineptitude made for some very loud outbursts on her end.
** In Season 11, Sarge builds another robot, Lopez Dos-Point-Oh. Unlike the original Lopez, who just sank into immense cynicism, Dos-Point-Oh became so stunned by the Red Team's stupidity (Particularly Sarge's) that he uploaded his mind into a HumangousMecha and went on a shooting spree.

* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'': Magnus, being the InsufferableGenius he is, finds it hard to tolerate both more simple-minded Kitten (who isn't even dumb; just not Primarch-tier) and letters from the Imperial citizens (who ''are'' rather unfortunately slow and absurdly ignorant). The former makes him break into lectures and generally snap at him constantly, the other have him fly into rages.

The former makes him break into lectures and generally snap at him constantly, the other have him fly into rages. Notably, this also applies to ''events'' that he finds are stupid, such as when he thought [[spoiler:it really was reuniting Vulkan's artifacts that brought [[KingInTheMountain the man himself]] back]], meaning a prophecy that had no reason to work was true after all:
-->'''Magnus:''' That! Makes! No! SENSE! ''WHY WOULD THAT WORK!?'' THAT CAN'T BE IT, THAT'S '''STUPID!'''

Obviously a SubTrope of BerserkButton. Characters who are the OnlySaneMan or SurroundedByIdiots tend to have this, but it is also one of the main JerkJustifications. You can expect the {{Tsundere}} to have this characteristic, especially if she's around the IdiotHero. If both the idiocy persists and the inability to treat the anger go on for too long, it can go into MaddenIntoMisanthropy territory.

You can expect the {{Tsundere}} to have this characteristic, especially if she's around the IdiotHero. If used excessively, this Trope can turn the StraightMan of the cast into a straight up {{Jerkass}}, whom although gifted with intelligence, is an emotionally hollow brick wall with an exasperating "cup half empty" attitude towards life, refusing to see the ''good'' in people favor of justifying his sarcasm and hate for the world by arrogantly accentuating ''every'' little flaw in everyone else but himself.

If both the idiocy persists and the inability to treat the anger go on for too long, it can go into MaddenIntoMisanthropy territory.

* Fanfic/ImperialServant When Dabbler, a succubus who was called to perform a 'good deed', realizes her summoner didn't have a "banishing anchor" for her, which is a safeguard to send any summoned creature back where it belongs in an instant, she showed him ''why'' banishing anchors are important by attacking him with a flaming sword.

** Tywin Lannister. He's perpetually unamused, given that his standards are high, has no tolerance for incompetence and [[TheCaligula Joffrey]]'s rule has been a long parade of follies and disasters. Given that many of his subordinates ([[PuppetKing including Joffrey]]) are frequently StupidEvil, it's little wonder Tywin sees himself as SurroundedByIdiots.

*Light Yagami from ''Anime/DeathNote'' frequently gets annoyed by [[StalkerWithACrush Misa Aname]]'s frequent acts of stupidity that [[TooDumbToLive constantly puts them at risk of being exposed as Kira]]. In fact, Misa's actions lead to Light commonly saying [[CatchPhrase "Misa, you idiot!"]]

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': This seems to be a factor in Lalli's dislike of Reynir. Lalli is a grown up ChildSoldier with a few years of magic pratice behind him, if little training in it. Reynir is a ShelteredAristocrat with just a few days (a few weeks after a the TimeSkip) of even knowing he's a mage, causing him to still be EasilyImpressed by the InvisibleToNormals aspect of it. When an omen that only the two of them can see appears, Lalli's reaction to Reynir's gawking at it is to scold him for "looking stupid".
