'''Random Amazon:''' A little...?

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': Helga Pataki has a very short, if not non-existent, fuse. Even the slightest provocation will cause her to either yell, beat someone's ass or give them TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. Lila even acknowledges her bad temper in "Helga's Makeover" and tries to help her curtail it (though Helga's only interested in doing so because she thinks it'll make Arnold like her more).

Added DiffLines:

* The husband from the Canadian short ''WesternAnimation/HotStuff'' can get angry very easily, due to his impatience at missing his show. Unfortunately, this temper is what drives him to do something stupid like ''jam a fork in a toaster'' to get the toast out.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', the Lord of Storms has next to no patience, and gets worse the longer he's held back from the hunt. Add to that his nature as a HumanoidAbomination, and he's pretty terrifying.

* Eva from TotalDramaIsland is a good example of this. Pretty much every character is afraid of her (including animals). It isn't helped by the fact that she has SuperStrength.

* ''Series/TheThickOfIt'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuBFAp6EmnY&feature=related Malcolm Tucker and Jamie McDonald]] are both possessors of very, very short fuses for anger.

* ''Series/TheThickOfIt'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuBFAp6EmnY&feature=related Malcolm Tucker and Jamie McDonald]] are both possessors of very, very short fuses for anger. Jamie might have the edge, however; generally, Malcolm's anger is usually focussed and prompted [[BerserkButton by other people's incompetence and stupidity]], whereas Jamie just seems perpetually on the edge of snapping into loud, violent anger even at merely hypothetical provocations.

Sometimes, the character is this way because they're generally irritable and misanthropic -- they don't really like anyone they deal with. Sometimes the character is suffering from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intermittent_explosive_disorder Intermittent Explosive Disorder]]. And sometimes, the character with the Hair Trigger Temper is trying to pick a fight or intimidate or abuse someone. With the latter scenario, it doesn't really matter what you do or don't say to them -- they will use it as an excuse to go off on you and make your life hell, essentially doing a verbal version of WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou -- behaving badly and then pinning the blame on the person being attacked. These kinds of people are generally called [[TheBully bullies]]. If someone tougher or higher ranked than them tells them to knock it off, they probably will, at least for the moment. Characters with a NapoleonComplex are usually known for having a Hair-Trigger Temper.

* ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool'': [[HeroicComedicSociopath Brittnay]] [[{{Tsundere}} Matthews]] is this trope embodied. So is [[{{Workaholic}} Mackenzie Zales's mother]]. The former ''only'' holds back against genuinely nice people.
