The end result of this varies, depending on the tone of the series and who the character is. If the series is [[DarkerAndEdgier dark and edgy]], they may go on a [[MurderIsTheBestSolution murderous rampage.]] On the other hand, if it's [[LighterAndSofter light and soft]], it may just be PlayedForLaughs, becoming a source for their hilarious dialogue and wacky plans. A villain is likely to have a VillainousBreakdown resulting in KarmicDeath, while a hero will just have a HeroicBSOD and then get better.

* In ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' in the events leading up to the ''Sonic Adventure'' adaptation, Robotnik begins to lose it, first trying to [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy Mobius]], and later gathering the Chaos Emeralds, the Freedom Fighters, and Chaos itself to his retreat so they would all die together. After this fails, he becomes little more than a catatonic, drooling mess in ''Webcomic/SonicTheComicOnline.''

* After Optimus Prime dies ([[TheyKilledKenny the first time, that is]]) in ''ComicBook/TheTransformers'', Megatron takes it poorly, and becomes convinced Optimus is still alive and planning something. His madness eventually winds up causing him to shoot at the Space Bridge, which promptly explodes and apparently kills him. [[spoiler:Or not, as it turns out Megatron was just ObfuscatingInsanity, and using his 'death' as a cover to return to Cybertron. He just miscalculated when shooting the Space Bridge, resulting in a spot of LaserGuidedAmnesia.]]
