Subtropes of violence against inanimate objects to relieve stress include AgitatedItemStomping, when the character is hopping mad, DartboardOfHate, where the character takes their frustrations out on an enemy's image, and PunchAWall or RageAgainstTheReflection, specifically attacking vertical surfaces. Can cross with PercussiveShutdown in cases where a device [[WhyWontYouDie stubbornly]] [[ItWontTurnOff continues to function]].
