* Superboy-Prime, while a moron, is terrifying because he ''will'' fly off the handle and start trying to destroy everything in sight at the slightest provocation. The reason this is terrifying is because he's as strong as [[PhysicalGod Silver Age Superman]].

* ''Comicbook/{{New 52}}'' ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' was very irritable and snappy due to months of being manipulated, abused and betrayed in addition to be an orphan of a dead world. Her temper got worse, to the point she eventually became a rage-powered [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lantern]] in the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' story arc. During her RL stint, she barely could control her anger, and she often blew up with no reason or provocation and regretted her outbursts afterwards. Paradoxically, that situation taught her how to keep her temper under control.

* Pete Townshend was known for frequent and intense bouts of anger when recording with TheWho, which fortunately receded just quickly enough to keep everyone from hating him (he was a perfectionist).

* ''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.

* ''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.)


Added DiffLines:

* ''Website/GoAnimate'':
** The cops. Literally, they will arrest anybody if you so much as touch litter, or even [[FelonyMisdemeanor ''walk up to it'']]. And if you're arrested by them, it's ALWAYS prison, no matter what the heck crime you committed. Do anything, and they will [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 unleash their]] [[MemeticMutation rage]].
** WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}} and [[AbusiveParents Boris]] too, especially under Isaac Anderson (especially Caillou) or OfficerPoop247 (especially Boris). They both also crossover with AxCrazy (and often TheSociopath). Dora's parents qualify as well, crossing with AbusiveParents, often telling to her face that they wish she was never born/call her derogatory or obscene names.
*** Heck, almost ANY troublemaker/their parents have one, but Caillou and Boris are still the most prominent examples. Their parents sometimes ''outright kill'' their kid.
** If it's Matt the GoAnimator, and the troublemaker is WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}, expect a foul-mouthed scumbag with a nasty temper.

** [[TropeCodifier The biggest inspiration for the trope]] is Tommy [=DeVito=] from ''Film/{{Goodfellas}}'', who has a vicious temper borne from a [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex need to prove he's the world's biggest badass]], and can snap at the slightest provocation. His usual recourse against an insult to his person is to murder the offender, regardless of whether they are a lowly busboy or a mob boss. His instability ultimately causes problems for him later in his career. Interestingly, [=DeVito=] is very aware of his reputation. In one scene, he feigns offense at a harmless compliment to toy with his friends. The hardened gangsters not only believe that his rage is real, but they're terrified of him. [[spoiler:Tommy's temper and instability eventually get him killed when he kills a made man, which you do NOT do in the mob without a sitdown and an okay from the boss]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood'' has Black Mask, who seems to have two temper settings. Mad, and punch all my henchmen mad. Almost all of his scenes consist of him yelling angrily. An odd exception comes near the end. [[spoiler: After being betrayed and captured by the Joker, he gives a rather deadpan "Can't. trust. no one.]]

An odd exception comes near the end. [[spoiler: After being betrayed and captured by the Joker, Joker and told that the Joker wanted something to wear and a very large truck, Black Mask asks if he wants anything else in a rather subdued way. Later, when he learns that he and Joker had been [[UnwittingPawn tricked by the Red Hood]], he gives a rather deadpan "Can't. trust. no one.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Most of the threat Beerus provides comes in the combination of his incomprehensible power and ''extremely'' short fuse. He authorized the destruction of planet Vegeta because King Vegeta only gave him the second-comfiest pillow, and nearly blew up the Earth because Majin Buu wouldn't share his pudding cup with him.

* ''Fanfic/WeirdIncidentShit'': [[Webcomic/ProblemSleuth Problem Sleuth]] can tell that [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Reimu Hakurei]] has one.
** He's right- if you try to challenge her to a fight, you get a Bad End.

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': Due to the events of canon, Asuka is very bitter and short-tempered. Nonetheless, her temper improves a bit after hooking up with Shinji.

* Eminem drops many a ClusterFBomb.
** Eminem has named his daughter as a particular hair trigger - during their feud, Benzino threatened Hailie's life in a song. Which made things SO MUCH WORSE.

** Yang's temper more often than not serves as a detriment. The first instance of this is against Neo, where Neo dodges all of Yang's attacks to frustrate and tire Yang out, leaving Yang open to being knocked out with one move and Neo would've killed Yang were it not for another character's intervention. Yang's temper later on also [[spoiler:helps sell a DeliberateInjuryGambit on the part of Mercury Black, turning her into a HeroWithBadPublicity]]. It all comes to a head in the finale of Volume 3 [[spoiler:where she rushes at Adam Taurus in a rage over him stabbing Blake, where the fast IaijustuPractitioner casually lops her right arm off with one swing.]]

* Pesto the pigeon from the "Goodfeathers" segment of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' is based on the Tommy character played by Joe Pesci, above. He aims his outbursts mostly at Squit, who never quite figures out that calling Pesto ''anything'' results in his getting beat up. In another case, Pesto has lost his sister's egg, and Bobby reassures him that they'll get it back. Squit agrees with Bobby. Pesto smacks Squit. What'd he do? "Nothing. I just felt like smackin' somebody." (His voice actor was not Creator/JoePesci, just Chick Vennera doing a damned good Pesci impression.)
