** Subaru arrives on scene to discover that three enemy combat cyborgs [[YouAreTooLate have already defeated her older sister Ginga]] and are in the process of stuffing her into a box in order to bring her back to their MadScientist boss. Subaru ''loses it'' and [[UnstoppableRage launches into an immediate and furious attack]], making excellent use of [[spoiler:the Inherent Skill she has because she's ''also'' a combat cyborg]] in order to even the odds. This [[HeroicRROD does as much damage to her as it does to them]], but gets two of the three to run for it while [[YouShallNotPass the third stays behind to hold Subaru off]]. Subaru takes the straggler out in short order, only to be thwarted when ''another'' combat cyborg (with the ability to [[{{Intangibility}} phase through solid objects]]) shows up to bail her out. So Subaru, in the span of about 90 seconds, forces ''four'' combat cyborgs to retreat rather than fight her... then collapses into a sobbing wreck because she's seriously wounded and [[spoiler:she couldn't stop them from taking Ginga with them when they escaped]].

** Later in the episode, [[SummonMagic Dragon Summoner]] Caro and DragonKnight Erio arrive at [[HomeBase Riot Force 6 headquarters]] in response to a distress call, but find the building in flames and the attackers already leaving. Erio rushes to stop them but is blindsided by other enemies in the area and swiftly defeated. The main enemies depart, leaving behind their MechaMooks and an automated announcement that the HQ building will be destroyed momentarily. Caro, at this point the only defender still standing, responds by summoning her dragon. Not her usual dragon, Friedrich (who alternates between {{Shoulder Sized|Dragon}} and [[DragonRider riding size]]), but ''Voltaire'', the {{Kaiju}} sized guardian of her homeworld, who can only be summoned in dire need and is difficult to control at the best of times. [[CurbStompBattle Voltaire annihilates the remaining enemy forces in a single attack]].

* ''[[SonicStorybookSeries Sonic And The Secret Rings]]'': The titular hero pulls this on the BigBad after he kills Sonic's ExpositionFairy. Covered in flames? Check. ExtremeMeleeRevenge? Check. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking No gloves?]] Check.
** Also, if you get Shadow ticked off to the point where he takes off his limiters, you have [[OhCrap really just backed yourself into a corner.]]

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Vegeta reaches this point during the Buu saga, [[spoiler:allowing himself to be controlled by Babidi]] for the power boost that that entails.

to:

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', ''Anime/DragonBallZ'':
** Whenever someone, particularly Goku or Piccolo, removes any weighted training clothing they're wearing. This removes the restraints on their power and indicates they're planning on taking the fight seriously.
** Later in the series, Super Saiyan, or really, any kind of transformations, can be seen as this, as it increases the transformer's power and removes their restraints.

* Vash the Stampede reaches this point near the end of ''{{Trigun}}'', when he [[spoiler:kills Legato Bluesummers]] in order to save Millie and Meyrl. Oddly for this trope, the act itself is rather understated, rather than being an epic fight scene.

* A good way to set Luke Skywalker into this mode is to threaten Leia. Vader made that mistake in ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' and so did C'Baoth in ''The Last Command'' in the EU.
