** There's also the fact that her level in badass involves [[spoiler:having the Jägermonsters as effectively her private army]]. You're going to become FAR less hysterical when you realise that they [[spoiler:work for you because they actually WANT you to succeed]].

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', [[MentorMascot Kyubey]] explains that the reason that his species [[DealWithTheDevil make contracts]] with girls, and specifically ''teenage'' girls, is because they're the most emotional kind of human. [[spoiler:Specifically, they have the most dramatic reversals between hope and despair, which provides the emotional energy that Kyubey is collecting]].

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', Kyubey only makes contracts with girls because of this trope. [[spoiler: Girls tend to be more emotional than boys, and they're more likely to wish for something that they think will get them what they want instead of wishing for it directly. And that suits his needs just fine: the sooner they fall to despair, the faster they become Witches, and all the more energy for him to harvest.]]

* This trope is hilariously spoofed in ''Film/{{Airplane}}'', with a long line of passengers [[RightOnQueue lining up]] to [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan slap the hysterical woman]], with increasingly lethal weapons.
* The gag is recycled in ''Film/AirplaneIITheSequel'' when the same woman testifies on [[TheHero Ted Stryker's]] behalf in a KangarooCourt -- the memory of her hysterics sends her into a fresh episode of hysterics, which prompts the members of the court to line up to beat it out of her.

* In ''TheFugitive'', as the US Marshals conduct a raid on a home looking for an escaped prisoner, his girlfriend begins shrieking and screaming. She stops briefly when he's shot, then starts up again almost immediately, leaving the unsympathetic, fed-up Gerard to point his gun at her and snap at her to "Shut up"

* In ''MurderOnTheOrientExpress'', Mrs. Hubbard goes through this a few times. First is when the supposed murderer escapes into her room after murdering Mr. Ratchett, then when she discovers the murder weapon in her sponge bag. [[spoiler: It's an act.]]

Not to worry. Such hysteria is easily cured with a good slap on the face.

* Dr. Janice Lester, a villain-of-the-week from ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' was one of these. She quickly went insane when put in command of a ship, and broke down sobbing into her male assistant's arms at the end of the episode. She was also, at one point explicitly described as "red-faced with hysteria."

* Janet Fielding's Tegan in ''Series/DoctorWho'' Series 18 and 19. She eventually calmed down, but was still argumentative and prone to panicking. Even Fielding complained she was less a character and more a collection of tics and whinging -- apparently the showrunner, JohnNathanTurner, was opposed to character development as it hurt the marketability of his creations.

* ''Film/HighPlainsDrifter''. Callie Travers, the town prostitute, is understandably pissed off about being raped by the Stranger in broad daylight and tries to incite the cowardly townspeople to stand up to him. When her complains are dismissed as hysteria, she sarcastically reminds the man who said this (implied to be a client) that "I can remember some hysterics one night not too long ago."
