* ''MySuperExGirlfriend'' was made on this trope. It would have done a lot better, if they put some actual effort into the plot.
* Done for humor in ''TheBluesBrothers'' with Jake's ex-girlfriend (Carrie Fisher), whose revenge for being left at the altar involves plenty of StuffBlowingUp and [[{{BFG}} BFGs]].
* [[WaynesWorld Wayne's]] ex-girlfriend Stacy is a psycho hose-beast. Played for laughs, as SlapstickKnowsNoGender.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Spooks}}''. Quinn makes the mistake of confessing he's an MI5 agent to a woman he's seeing, who causes all kinds of problems when he tries to back out of the relationship (like printing his name and address on gay prostitute advertisement cards). Fortunately Quinn has attracted the attention of a BlondeRepublicanSexKitten from the CIA, who doesn't hesitate to abuse her power to scare off a rival.

* In {{Zoey 101}}, we have Chase's short-lived girlfriend, Rebecca. Admittedly, she was psycho while she and Chase were still dating; she demanded Zoey no longer have any contact with Chase, and that Chase stop being friends with Zoey. It was the reason they broke up. Rebecca, of course, took this to mean ''Zoey'' was the reason they broke up, and in a later episode ends up blackmailing her into doing all sorts of embarrassing things.
* In one episode of ''BoyMeetsWorld'', Shawn becomes the target of ''three'' of these who band together to sabotage his latest relationship because they think he is leading her on like he led them on.
* Gabe of ''TheOffice'' is a psycho ex boyfriend. He becomes one after Erin breaks up with him. He follows Andy, (whom Erin really likes) to the men's room and threatens him and follows Erin into the ladies room and pleads for her to take him back.
* Vera Bates of ''DowntonAbbey'' to the extreme. She refuses to let Mr. Bates divorce her, blackmails him for everything he owns and then pulls an ILied and tries to ruin his reputation and those of his girlfriend Anna and the family that employs them anyway, and finally [[spoiler: commits suicide in order to frame him for her murder.]] All this to a man who ''[[TakingTheHeat went to prison in her place]]'' for theft beforehand.

* On ''MyNameIsEarl'', Earl had a girlfriend of three weeks named Jessie, as of the night he had his AccidentalMarriage to Joy. Jessie worked as a secretary at the bail bondsman's office Earl frequented. When Joy had an arrest warrant for failing to appear in traffic court 6 years later, Jessie puts herself through TrainingFromHell so she can get revenge on Joy for a) stealing Earl from her and b) knocking out her two front teeth. [[spoiler: It doesn't work, and she gets her veneers knocked out too.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Adam Taurus in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is a male example. The episode "Heroes and Monsters" makes it quite clear that he didn't take it well when Blake left the [[WesternTerrorists White Fang]], and his [[TermsOfEndangerment referring to her as "my darling" and "my love"]] implies that they had some sort of romantic history together. [[spoiler:He's now dedicated to destroying everything Blake holds dear and starts by lopping off one of Yang's arms.]]

This is about the person who went nuts '''because of the break up'''. We also have tropes for: someone the hero [[DatingCatwoman knew was evil]] when they started dating, someone who [[BastardBoyfriend turned out]] to be a psycho within the relationship, and someone who was turned into a psycho out of the blue in order to [[DerailingLoveInterests kill off the relationship]].
