* Khornate Berserkers in both ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer Age Of Sigmar}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. The 40k Berserkers actually undergo voluntary lobotomies to increase their psychotic blood lust (by berserker-surgeons no less). The page quote is one of their most infamous warcries. It also helps that in regular {{Warhammer}} that Khorne's warriors tend to come from a fantasy Viking culture and is essentially an evil Odin.

* Creator/DavidWeber's ''[[TheWarGods War God's Oath]]'' series features a species of these. It's somewhat involuntary, and they're not happy about that.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind's]]'' Bloodmoon expansion has Berserker NPC enemies. They run around on the game's frozen island setting wearing very little clothing and attack on sight

** The ultimate example of this in either setting is Skarbrand, the Exiled Bloodthirster. Having been given the idea that he could replace Khorne by Tzeentch, Skarbrand was beaten and flung across the daemonic skies for eight whole days and nights. The entire ordeal apparently wiped Skarbrand of all personality and thought beyond mindless rage, which is saying something as he was already the literal embodiment of rage and war due to being a bloodthirster. He now possesses an aura that literally causes anyone around him to be filled with berserker rage, causing everyone to fight in a frenzied blood-fueled orgy whenever he appears. To top it all off, both of his axes contain mad, furious greater daemons, making him a berserk daemon x3.

* Many people with autism can slip into a state called "meltdown" when overstressed or overstimulated. In this state they can sometimes (but do not always) violently lash out at their environment, not conscious of any harm to themselves. It's often mistaken for a mundane temper tantrum, but a normal toddler throwing a fit is in full control of themselves and making a power play, while a meltdown is not a controlled action.

** Brienne starts her fights with proper poise and footwork, but when she's pushed she'll go absolutely feral on her enemies, biting and screaming like a maniac until they are down.

* ''{{Rifts}}'', in its book ''Pantheons of the Megaverse'', has a Berserker CharacterClass in its section on Myth/NorseMythology. These berserkers go into their rage by stomping their feet on the ground, yelling, biting their shields, etc. This gives them combat bonuses to attack, but penalties to avoid being attacked.
