* Electro from ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' was a nice guy, but he had voices in his head even ''before'' his accident, and an obsession with Spider-Man after the hero saved him once and gave him some kind words. When he gets his powers, he heads into the [[PowerIncontinence "panicking"]] stage, and when the cops start shooting and people pay more attention to Spidey than him... [[ThenLetMeBeEvil he doesn't take it well]].
* Of the Three Storms in ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina'', Lightning is the most impressive. His body is crackling with electricity that he can shoot from his hands. He's the last Storm to be defeated.
* Since the two fried in an electric chair, the ghosts of Scoleri brothers in ''Film/GhostbustersII'' return to haunt the judge that send them to it as a pair of electrically-charged ghosts.
* ''Film/{{Prison}}'' revolves around an electrically charged ghost who wants revenge.
* Horace Pinker, SerialKiller who made a DealWithTheDevil in ''Film/{{Shocker}}'', comes back after death as an electric ghost who can possess people.
* In a more satirical vein, the chief psychologist in ''Film/TheRulingClass'' attempts to cure Peter O Toole's protagonist - under the delusion that he is God - by introducing him to another crazed man calling himself the "AC-DC Messiah."
* Sith Lords in ''Franchise/StarWars'', most notably Emperor Palpatine, have the ability to use Force to attack and torture people with lightning. As he is arguably the most famous person to cackle madly while shocking victims, probably the TropeCodifier.
* M. Bison in the ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie has these vibes. [[AGodAmI FOR I BEHELD SATAN AS HE FELL FROM HEAVEN...]] [[LargeHam LIKE LIIIIGHTNIIIING!!!]]

* Heckyl from ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' is funny, insane and very dangerous. His lightning powers are one of the reasons why he was locked up in a solitary confinement for centuries (or longer). His EstablishingCharacterMoment in ''Wishing For a Hero'' says it all.

* Subverted in ''TopTen'', whose character Shock-Headed Peter is a [[FantasticRacism robot hater]], but definitely NOT psychotic. He also [[MommasBoy loves his momma]]. Although one issue stated Peter had some sociopathic tendencies.

* ''Videogame/{{Sonny}} 2'' plays with this one in a new way. One of the two kinds of powers Psychological builds give you, other than MindRape, are electricity-based powers. Rather than using insanity to destroy minds, you're using your own thoughts' electricity (the brain and nerves running on electric impulses and all) as a weapon, applying this insanity in a different way.
