* Janus from ''Literature/TheShadowCampaigns''. Marcus notes that his most frightening quality is that he can be perfectly affable one second and then turn absolutely furious without warning, and you can never know what will set him off.

* Heiwajima Shizuo of ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' has a hair-trigger temper and [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower monstrous strength]] to go along with it. However, he's aware and ashamed of his violent habits and wants to get "strong enough" to keep a lid on them.

* There is ''absolutely no way'' of knowing whether saying something to Comicbook/TheJoker will result in him laughing or killing you, horribly and violently. Or doing both. You're on slightly safer ground with MarxBrothers quotes.

* American-Jewish mobster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel was infamous for his complete lack of self-control and losing his temper at the slightest disturbance. His nickname ''bugsy'', based on the slang term "bugs", meaning "crazy", was given to him by the media, who used it to describe his vicious temper. And no, the man did not take kindly to being called by this nickname.

* ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} lampshades this in one comic strip by saying that, among other things, he has a "lightning quick temper".

** The real Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro show up in one episode and beat their impersonators senseless, and FrankSinatra (not the real one) had his bodyguards give Joe a good working over.

** Bitch is an obvious example, being easily angered and quick to get physical; interestingly, [[spoiler:this is mostly a adaptation she uses because she can't read social cues, like sarcasm]].

** Come the fifth installment of the series and we now have Mr Trevor Phillips. Who makes the four previous examples look like a pair of ''harmless girlscoats'' by comparison. In fact his rampage missions ''intentionally'' invoke this trope by having him go on a massive killing spree as a result of being provoked by some ''very'' minor insults. (Whether it be mocking his Canadian heritage or just looking at him the wrong way.)

*** Guildmaster Wigglytuf seems to subvert this, despite having this reputation in ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' (to the extent that his NumberTwo fearfully warns you not to piss him off when you first meet him) despite his apparent personality as ThePollyanna. Then [[DoubleSubversion Double Subverted]] when [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption you fail to bring back a Perfect Apple]] and he [[UnstoppableRage is literally about to blow up up the guild]], prevented only by [[DeceptiveDisciple Team Skull's]] VillainousRescue moment.

* ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'''s babies can go from as happy as can be to absolutely miserable the instant you decide to return to the main island overview. Adult Miis are also easily angtered (sometimes with ''flames'' coming out of their heads and heavy metal playing.)

* ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'': Lina, Lina, ''Lina...'' insult her appearance (namely her [[ACupAngst small bustline]],) deny her food or money, spill her food, upstage her - any of these warrant either some sort of [[FantasticNuke explosion]], screaming, or physical harm. Two egregious examples are Lina nearly drowning Amelia in a hot spring after Amelia makes a lighthearted joke about [[BreastExpansion growing her bustline]], and Lina nuking an entire restaurant for the owner accidentally stepping on a sardine she was eating (which she ''didn't want in the first place'') in the ColdOpen of ''Slayers Premium.'' While she has always had a short temper, though, later anime productions [[{{Flanderization}} flanderize]] it.
