** Kaeloo normally tries to portray herself as pure and innocent, but in Episode 141, while on a parody of ''Series/TheVoice'', she ends up [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar wearing a revealing outfit and performing a sexually suggestive dance]] because she thinks it'll help her win.

*** Additionally, in the Majin Buu saga, she, previously shown to be an overbearing EducationMama, tells Gohan to skip school and train for the World Martial Arts tournament. Also played for laughs and lampshaded by Gohan. The prize money of ten million zeni ''probably'' had something to do with it.

** Jimmy has one when he disproportionately punished all three Eds in the episode "[[Recap/EdEddnEddyS4E1IfItSmellsLikeAnEd If It Smells Like an Ed.]]" This is what [[NeverLiveItDown fans remember him best for]] despite it being the only occurrence of that and the fact that everything was PlayedForLaughs.

* ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW'' has ''The Good, The Bad, and The Ponies'' where Twilight Sparkle refuses to use her magic to stop a group of criminals because "it would be abusing her power to use it on Equestrian citizens". What ''really'' makes this such an out of character moment is that all of her friends believed without a shred of doubt that she ''would'' use her magic (and even ''planned'' on it), and spend the entire story acting genuinely surprised and confused that the Element of ''Magic'' and the Princess of ''Friendship'' won't use her magic to help her friends or the innocent townsfolk who are being terrorized. In previous issues she's had no trouble using magic on others, absolutely no reason is given to even HandWave why she acted that way.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** It's starting to become a RunningGag that Fluttershy has a lot of seemingly out-of-character moments where she becomes (or appears to be) aggressive, violent, or evil. Most instances are either justified or subversions.
*** When she was being cruel to everyone, it was because Discord had corrupted her mind.
*** When she appeared to be beating up a bear, she was actually giving it chiropractic treatment.
*** It happens when someone harms or threatens her friends, which is established as her personal BerserkButton.
*** "Power Ponies" demonstrates that Fluttershy has a second BerserkButton: cruelty to animals. As Saddle Rager, she can't access her anger-based powers until she sees the villain swat a firefly. Cue HulkingOut.
*** In "Bats!" a MagicMisfire turns her into a hissing, fanged, bat-winged vampire -- but one that only [[VegetarianVampire sucks the juice out of apples]].
** Speaking of Fluttershy, she has a rather interesting example in The Best Night Ever. Each of the Mane Six has their night planned at the Galloping Gala and it backfires, most notably for Fluttershy, who goes from her usual shy and gentle self to [[LargeHam completely]] AxCrazy. This is justified for several reasons: (1) Since everyone was having their plans go awry, it would've broken the mood if Fluttershy was unaffected. (2) She's the kind of pony who bottles up her negative emotions, so in a way it makes sense that sooner or later she'd lose her cool. (3) [[RuleOfFunny "You're going TO LOVE ME!!!"]]
** This is explored in "Putting Your Hoof Down" where after getting some assertiveness training she becomes a total Jerkass and proceeds to shout, bully and beat up every before giving a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to two of her best friends, so maybe not out of character but a repressed, {{Jerkass}} side of her.

* ''Hitman2016'': The second training mission to "Assassinate" Jasper Knight has a major one. Everyone from the guards to the assassination target are ICA employees re-enacting a past assassination to test out new recruits, so when Agent 47 undeniably kills the actor playing Knight [[spoiler: by launching him out of the base on an ejector seat]] several of the guards momentarily break character to berate 47... before going back into character again.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun: The Lost Age'' has Kraden, an elderly scholar weho is calm and wise. Throughout the game, you can respond yes or no to some of the questions or propositions he presents. If you say no to him every step of the way and say no to him once the party reaches Lumeria, Kraden will ''completely flip out'' at Felix and yell at him for not taking the quest to save the world seriously. He never does this again.

** It happens to Kaiba in a filler episode of, Kaiba is just getting ready to fire some of his business associates for ''trying to kill him'' when they tell him that he should test out their new virtual simulator. Kaiba agrees and says he'll fire them AFTER testing out the trap... er, I mean, game. You can guess what happens.

to:

** In the original Japanese version of the Duelist Kingdom arc, Yami Bakura wanted Mokuba so he could take the keys to controlling Kaiba Corporation. This is especially strange considering Yami Bakura is obsessed with acquiring dark magical power and artifacts and shouldn't be expected to care about a company or money. The English dub changed his motive to the more plausible "use Mokuba as a new host body".

** Invoked in universe in the duel with Strings. Yami demonstrates caution by not attacking, despite his normally more bold/reckless style of play. It turns out he was guessing the opponent's strategy and knew they wanted him to attack, and so set up a counter play of his own.

** "The Talons of Weng-Chiang" has a very unusual characterisation for the Fourth Doctor. Generally portrayed as a silly RebelliousSpirit with little respect for social mores, a hatred of violence and a desire to rise above his environment, in "Weng-Chiang" he [[ChangedMyJumper dresses sans scarf]] (in a WholeCostumeReference to Literature/SherlockHolmes) and becomes surly, violent and authoritarian. He barely looks at Leela, except for when he's trying to use PygmalianPlot to convert her into an ideal Victorian woman, and constantly tries to [[StayInTheKitchen push her away]] despite how capable he is (telling her to "wait there" so many times that it became a ShallowParody joke of the show from this storyline alone). He immediately jumps to the conclusion that he needs to kill a mutated creature with a rifle instead of considering a peaceful solution, and when he gets his hands on the gun he coos over its workmanship in [[PatrioticFervour rather imperialist]] terms. He actually tries to call the Police to deal with the villains for him at one point, and makes bigoted jokes at the expense of the Chinese. He is also unnecessarily rude to Litefoot, vandalising his furniture, taking advantage of his Victorian politeness, and yelling at him. It is unclear why this is, as the story was written by Creator/RobertHolmes, the writer who created the Fourth Doctor's character; he may have been writing the Doctor as a parody of Sherlock Holmes to support the {{Pastiche}} tone of the story, trusting that Creator/TomBaker would be able to play it to make it feel like the Doctor (Baker, who normally hated any stories where the Doctor was violent, was a big fan of the ''Sherlock Holmes'' books and loved the opportunity to play Holmes so much that he had no interest in trying to WagTheDirector). There is also some suggestion that it was a new characterisation that was being floated for later showrunners, or for a potential Season 15 under Creator/PhilipHinchcliffe; the Fourth Doctor's personality had been gradually becoming less silly and more Gothic and Victorian over the course of Hinchcliffe's run, and the scarfless costume from this story was being talked about as a permanent new outfit for later seasons. Either way, it didn't stick, since he's back to being silly and kind next season.
