* ''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.]]

Lugh, however, is driving himself forward with his hatred of the country that destroyed their orphanage--as he says to a Bern defector, anger is a better motivator than sadness, and he has to stay angry until the war ends so he can survive.

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'':
** Caboose (a very nice, but exceptionally dumb member of Blue Team) is possessed by the A.I. [[BigBad O'Malley]]. Later, Caboose and Sarge are fighting two armies of flag-worshipping zealots. Caboose claims that "O'Malley taught me how to be mean"; by concentrating on things that make him angry (red bull, kittens with spikes on them), he proceeds to go crazy and wipe out both teams (scaring one poor fellow so badly that he though Caboose was the Flag-Worshipper version of TheAntichrist); before waking up with no recollection of his actions.

** Caboose never really displayed that sort of capability afterwards. [[spoiler:Until Episode 21 of Season 10. When facing an army of Tex copies, Church needs Caboose to get angry; and Caboose reveals that he forgot how. Church helps him remember.]]

Pretty much every other proud Fire Nation warrior used the purely aggressive style of fire bending, meaning Teach Him Anger was more or less Class 101 in the academy. Iroh and Jeong Jeong were among the few that realized that was self destructive, not just on a personal level but for the ''entire nation'' in the long-term.

* In ''SwordOfTheStars'', the second variant describes the training of Black Swimmers. The Liir are a species of [[TheEmpath Empaths]] who are pacifistic as a result, but because they need to defend themselves ''somehow'' a special caste of volunteers known as the Black Swimmers keep them safe by teaching themselves how to hate and kill. Black Swimmers are basically irredeemably AxCrazy by Liir standards and both sides are all too aware of this, but are nonetheless necessary for the race as a whole to survive. Their InitiationCeremony involves 'drowning' the aspirant in liquid oxygen until they black out and [[DespairEventHorizon abandon all hope]].

** Of course, this plan works a bit too well. Terra's rage is so great that it animates his armor and gives him the will to resist Xehanort's possession, allowing him to fight back on a physical and metaphysical level.

* In ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', the Nameless One can teach an [=NPC=] how to get angry. The goal is to get her annoyed enough at her co-workers to gossip about them, though. It's a notable SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} in a game that was already full of them- you have to start by getting her to "practice" insulting you, which she does by first telling you that she thinks that you're a less than perfectly wonderful person, then working herself into a full-on scenery chewing rant.
