** The titular Evangelions have been known to go out of control from time to time; in fact, the official term NERV uses for this situation is "berserking". Eva-01, the flagship mecha of the show is the most notorious berserker out of the bunch, and it's also ''fiercely'' protective of it's pilot Shinji. It's broken out of restraints, moved without power, and brutally ripped attacking angels to shreds in order to protect the boy. [[spoiler: The Eva is a living being with the soul of Shinji's mother, Yui, inside it; meaning these berserk moments are one hell of a MamaBear moment.]] Eva-00 goes berserk during its activation test, with far less beneficial results. Likewise, Eva-02 goes berserk during the FinalBattle in End of Evangelion.

* The Literature/BookOfJudges in Literature/TheBible reports that "the Spirit of the Lord came on Samson" several times, which inevitably resulted in a high body count. On one occasion he [[CurbStompBattle killed one thousand Philistines]] singlehandedly, armed only with [[ImprobableWeaponUser a donkey's jawbone]].

* The Badger Lords, and anyone else unfortunate enough to have the bloodwrath, from Brian Jacque's ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' series. When the bloodwrath takes over, the warrior will throw themselves into battle, seeking to reach and kill their mortal enemy. They are completely heedless of their own safety, and will kill anyone--friend or foe--who tries to get in their way or otherwise stop them. They usually end up killing scores of foes, their mortal enemy, and themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheAngloAmericanNaziWar'', a lot of the Waffen-SS and Hitler Youth approach this due to fanaticism garnered through years of propaganda against the "evil English" and a [[HopelessWar general lack of options]]. Brainwashed ChildSoldiers with automatic weapons are quite terrifying.

* ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' has an enemy actually called "Berserkers" which are essentially female Locust Drones covered in armored plating that renders them invincible to small arms and explosives. Being blind they track targets by scent and smell, but have enough muscle and mass to pound through solid stone walls. The only infantry-portable weapon capable of killing them reliably is the [[KillSat Hammer Of Dawn]] target designator, though in a pinch one can improvise using the terrain. In ''Gears Of War 3'', a new variant of the Berserker appears in the form of the ''Lambent'' Berserker, which in addition to being nearly invincible, also has multiple arms and bladed tentacles and leaks poisonous Imulsion when wounded.
