%%* ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'': The * One episode of ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Fumoffu'' features Sousuke putting the school rugby episode...team through grueling TrainingFromHell reminiscent of the boot camp part of ''Film/FullMetalJacket'' to turn them from timid weaklings into disciplined powerhouses. [[GoneHorriblyRight This works only marginally better than it did in said film]], as they become borderline rabid and utterly terrifying as a result.

* There's a [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Star Wars manga]] (yes, [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Perfect_Evil Star Wars manga]], and not just of the movies, [[CanonDiscontinuity although it's non-canon]]) where Darth Vader slaughters a colony of hidden Jedi and spares the last one, a rather young boy, because Force Sensitivity plus incredible anger equals a good Sith apprentice. So Vader takes the boy back and finds that while Tao attacks him on command, for whatever reason even reminding the boy that Vader ''killed his family and razed his world'' doesn't make him use his hatred. ...It's a rather weird story.

* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', Iris notices how Ash, [[NiceGuy who is normally as kind and good natured as they get]], tends to have episodes of anger when confronting people who hurt those he cares about, and that his anger makes him lose focus and affects his battle performance. She makes a note to train him to control those bursts of anger in the future.

** A big part of Gohan's character arc in the Universe Survival Saga of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' is regaining that anger and fighting instinct, which is much more difficult for him than just getting back into top physical shape.



* Basically the conspiracy's goal in [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the 2003 anime version]] of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', which seeks to make a powerful alchemist angry, callous or desperate enough where they're willing to [[spoiler:fulfil the primary production requirement of the PhilosophersStone: sacrificing thousands of human lives]]. This approaches BreakTheCutie levels for {{Reluctant Warrior}}s Ed & Al.

* In ''[[PhantasyStar Phantasy Star IV]]'', the main character can go to the [[BonusDungeon Anger Tower]] and learn, arguably, the most powerful technique in the game, which happens to be fueled by anger; this trope comes into play when Re-Faze puts Chaz to a SecretTestOfCharacter: forcing him to confront and then kill a specter of his deceased mentor and surrogate mother, and then taunt him for his pain after realizing it was an illusion, ''then'' offer to teach him the Forbidden technique to taunt him with how incredibly powerful it would be.

** Subverted in ''Literature/ProvostsDog''. Four-year-old Prince Gareth learned how to hate on his own after witnessing his guards' murder, being abused as a slave, and seeing some of his slave friends murdered too. Beka says now that he's learned how to hate, he has to learn how to ''forgive'', which can be a lot harder.
* In ''[[Literature/{{Discworld}} Carpe Jugulum]]'', the Magpyr family are vampires, the patriarch of which has extensively trained to resist all the classic vampire weaknesses because he doesn't see why they have to do it the stupid way and lose some of the time when they can win all the time with training. When the ''old'' Count de Magpyr returns, he's encouraged to take his grandchildren under his wing and teach them ''stupid'', because biding your time, dead, for a few decades, is how a vampire really gets ahead.
* Dialed UpToEleven in ''Literature/TheFionavarTapestry'' by Creator/GuyGavrielKay. The race of Giants are the ultimate pacifists, unable to hate and unwilling to defend themselves. All but one refuse to even so much as ask for aid when they are being slowly tortured to death, because it would mean someone else has to battle on their behalf. [[spoiler:When they are rescued from the brink of extinction, they are still unable to hate on their own behalf -- only being forced to witness the brutal rape of someone else finally undoes their absolute pacifism. And even undone, they still never shed blood or directly fight in any way.]]

* In the fourth ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'' novel, Sister Saggart encourages [[NiceGirl Annala]] to dig deep and cultivate as much anger and rage as she can because it is necessary to use malevolent holy chaos magic. This results in KillingIntent that makes a monster's madness seem tame in comparison. Her natural compassion means she can already use benevolent holy chaos magic.

* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' features an eccentric swordmaster attempting to teach his apprentice this, believing that his rage will serve him well in the arena. His method? Well, you're really angry when you're looking at people who are out of your league, right? So [[InsaneTrollLogic obviously]], [[ConverseError you'd be most angry at someone whom you find deeply attractive.]] He gives his apprentice a picture of his opponent and tells him to masturbate to it until he finds his opponent attractive. It works: the moment the apprentice and his opponent enter the arena, [[GoneHorriblyRight they start making out.]]
