** In the TV miniseries remake ''Stephen King's The Shining'', Jack (played by Steven Weber) is more clearly a nasty person only when he's drunk, an aspect King felt Kubrick's film lacked (in Nicholson's portrayal, Jack seems a bit scary even before he falls off the wagon). Problem is, Weber isn't nearly as frightening. As Kubrick said, when some of his actors complained he was pushing them into unrealistic, over-the-top performances, "Real is good. '''Interesting''' is better."

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' generally implies that the more insane the villain, the more powerful. The series went from the generally sane, but evil [[FauxAffablyEvil Frieza,]] to [[AffablyEvil Cell,]] to the unbelievably psychotic being that is [[OmnicidalManiac Majin Buu.]]

** It's not so much that they're violent as the fact that they're crazy and [[RealityWarper have the power to make their insane delusions reality]]. While one male channeler may or may not be a problem, over a hundred of them deciding that peaches are poisonous, or that mountains belong ''there'', or that they're 100% certain a hurricane/earthquake is coming, and then using their powers to make these things happen, leads to a lot of death and destruction.

We get a perfect example of how it works at the end of ''A Path of Daggers'', where a male channeler snaps and remains quite good-natured... but one of the protagonists keeps having to explain to him that he should not collapse the palace they're standing in so that he can use the stones to build a shelter for her.

* Jake in ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree'' apparently believes this. He is certain that Johnny is a danger to Sadie's life, even though he just seems to suffer from some kind of obsessive-compulsive disorder that, while it certainly makes him behave like an emotionally abusive JerkAss, should not immediately translate into being homicidal. [[spoiler: He turns out to be right, mind you.]] He also refers to Oswald as one of "the crazies," who he seems to consider violent per definition.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' backstory has [[TheCaligula Emperor Pelagius the Mad]]. Living up to his nickname, he was both utterly insane and, especially later in his life, prone to outbursts of AxeCrazy violence due to his insanity. After his madness became too publicly apparent, he was institutionalized and died only a few years later. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', [[MadGod Sheogorath]]'s Daedric quest involves [[PetTheDog posthumously curing Pelagius]] of whatever madness ailed him.

** Rorscharch is a SociopathicHero, described by Moore as "Batman without the excuses". He lives alone, prowls the streets and bars, believes in all kinds of ConspiracyTheories and sees himself as the OnlySaneMan. He was already violent and unstable even before a certain dog incident, but after that he becomes even ''more'' violent, in his own words explaining that he had been merely soft before because he let his victims live.
