Sometimes, when a character is angry or deranged and is just about to snap, they start moving head down, everything limp, lurching as if they were a marionette that's had its strings cut. KubrickStare, and [[{{Angrish}} inability to form coherent sentences]] optional. This is sometimes taken as a sign of UnstoppableRage -- any character that dares to get close risks serious injury, especially if the character is also [[SwordDrag dragging a weapon across the ground.]]

Probably taken from Western horror flicks, where it's associated with zombified/possessed characters. Compare with PrimalStance, MarionetteMotion and ZombieGait. Not to be confused with a man who's angry because TheLoinsSleepTonight.

* ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' does this to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Terra]] in the [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII Onion Knight]]'s storyline. However, it doesn't quite work due to [[GoingThroughTheMotions the limited expressive range]] of the character models used, and she ends up looking hung over more than anything.

* Asura from ''AsurasWrath'' does this when in [[spoiler: Wrath Form]]. Goes into a PrimalStance occasionally, too.[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AD_PcuRquFI Biteikotsu]].
* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'': In the new [[UpdatedRerelease Prepare to Die Edition content,]] [[FallenHero Abysswalker Artorias]] spends the entirety of the fight in this posture.The reason he does it is one of his arms is horribly broken and mangled, and the other one is [[SwordDrag dragging]] his signature [[{{BFS}} greatsword]]. True to form for this trope, he manages to be perhaps one of the single most relentless bosses in the game (Considering that this is ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'', that's saying something), lunging forward abruptly over impossible distances and somersaulting through the air and crashing down on you repeatedly.

* In ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', this is one of the signs that Yandere-Chan is visibly insane, as well as anyone completely mindbroken by ColdBloodedTorture.

May also be that the rage is the only reason they're still standing if it's toward the end of an UnstoppableRage and they're completely exhausted, not wasting energy on posture.
