* A few {{Face Heel Turn}}s in later episodes of ''Anime/MaiHime'' came about via {{Freak Out}}s. Getting [[EyeScream stabbed in the eye]] or [[LoveMakesYouEvil being rejected by a potential suitor]] can do that to a person.

* ''Anime/PerfectBlue'': Mima, coming home at the end of a particularly traumatic day, finds her beloved pet fish dead and loses control for a moment, trashing her apartment. The trauma was because of a rape scene, which [[MindScrew may or may not have]] become genuine, as her screams got more and more convincing. This is just the first FreakOut of many.

* In ''Literature/SonOfTheBlackSword'', Ashok suffers a freakout that segues into a RoaringRampageOfRevenge when he learns that a) he is [[spoiler: casteless]], b) his so-called relatives have brainwashed him into being [[DeTerminator who]] and [[ExtremeDoormat what]] he is, and c) they killed his mother to do so. The fallout of ''his'' actions results in his nominal "aunt," Bidaya, having a short-lived and ultimately fatal FreakOut of her own.

** In WesternAnimation/DuckRabbitDuck, Daffy has an impressive rant after taking one too many shotgun blasts to the face.
--->'''Daffy:''' Shoot me again! I ''enjoy'' it! I love the smell of burnt feathers, and gun powder, and cordite! I'm an elk! Shoot me, go on! It's elk season! I'm a fiddler crab! ''Why don't you shoot me?! It's fiddler crab season!''

* The title character of ''{{Carrie}}'' has a similar freak out to Ralphie, but the results are far more destructive: rather than simply beat the snot out of the bullies who poured pigs' blood on her in front of the class, she burns the school down with everyone locked inside. This wasn't the first time she was bullied, but it was this moment that finally sent her over the edge.

* ''Film/IsleOfTheDead'': Mrs. St. Aubyn is afflicted with catalepsy and thus has a mortal fear of being BuriedAlive. Sure enough, she is buried alive, or rather entombed above ground, after having a cataleptic fit--TheBlackDeath is raging on the island and the survivors aren't letting bodies sit around. Mrs. St. Aubyn comes completely unhinged in her coffin and, after she escapes, starts murdering people.

* Lon Chaney Sr. has a truly impressive one in the film ''The Unknown'' (1927). He plays Alonzo, a criminal fugitive who's hidden out at a circus disguised as an armless knife-thrower (he has his arms, but also a distinctive and identifiable hand deformity); Nanon (Crawford), the circus owner's daughter, has a distaste for being touched by men due to some past trauma and becomes friendly with him. As his love for her grows, he takes the next step and ''[[spoiler: has both his arms amputated]]''-- just in time for her to [[EpiphanyTherapy get over it]] thanks to the circus' handsome strong man. (Probably also qualifies as a VillainousBreakdown, given how quickly things get worse.)
