* Used heroically in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' - the Phantom Thieves motivate themselves with their hatred and contempt for the corrupt adults they target - at one point, Yusuke explicitly tells Haru to keep her anger in mind and use it as encouragement. The speeches given by the eponymous [[GuardianEntity Guardian Entities]] when the characters receive them are full of contempt, encouraging the wielder to let loose with their new power and to use it to take down villains truly deserving of such hatred. Even the {{Super Move Portrait Attack}}s tie into this - whereas in previous games characters simply gave off determined stares, in ''5'' the cast looks truly ''pissed'', with {{Death Glare}}s, WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises, and general seething.

* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'': Terumi Yuuki literally lives on this, as [[spoiler:it's the only way he can keep his spirit in the living world]]. Specifically, he lives on [[HateSink the hatred of other people towards him]], which he is very, very good at engendering by [[KickTheDog doing horrible things]] [[MoralEventHorizon to others]] [[ForTheEvulz for the lulz]] and making them miserable. He's also got plenty of hatred of his own to unleash upon anyone who dares to mess up his plans (which is a major BerserkButton of his).

Said plan is [[spoiler: ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil dedicated to breeding an endless amount of hatred, fear and despair for him to feed off]]. And his driving motivation for carrying out said plan? His hatred of [[spoiler: his sister, the [[DeusEstMachina Master Unit: Amaterasu]], and everything she has ever created]].

* [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Pariah]] demons in ''VideoGame/NexusWar'' games can concentrate their hatred enough to ''[[ActionBomb blow themselves up]]'', spraying anyone in the vicinity with unholy shrapnel.

* On a more heartwarming (and somewhat hilarious) note, there is the case of [[https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2015/01/13/meet-the-man-who-spent-12-years-trapped-inside-his-body-watching-barney-reruns/?utm_term=.813edf489603 Martin Pistorius]], who woke up [[AndIMustScream trapped in his own body, perfectly aware but unable to move or act in any way, misdiagnosed by doctors who thought he was still a vegetable]]. One of the main factors the young man (then a young boy) identifies as key in recovering was the fact the daycare he spent his days in ran rerun after rerun of ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'', which he grew to hate with such fervor he slowly, methodically tried to reorient his thoughts in a way that'd let him regain ''some'' control over his situation, starting by telling the time by the shadows in the room just so he knew when Barney would end. This was an important step in his long recovery, and now he is perfectly capable of expressing himself with a computer. Except for one thing: His hatred of the purple dinosaur, which he essentially used to bring himself out of both the DespairEventHorizon ''and'' his paralyzed condition. As one tumblr user put it:
-->''So it turns out that the primal hatred people have toward Barney is '''strong enough to pull a disembodied consciousness out of the abyss of existential despair and into the physical world out of pure spite'''''

* Though characters in the ''VideoGame/{{Boktai}}'' series are able to channel its usage for good, Dark (Hel) based magic is fueled by hatred and can easily corrupt it's user (which ''can'' happen as {{Non Standard Game Over}}s and [[MultipleEndings Bad Endings]] if you're not careful). Sabata says it word for word after being defeated and purified on the Piledriver:
--> '''Sabata:''' Dark matter is the power of hatred... it brings out negative emotions... and amplifies them...

* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'' series "[[AntiVillain villains]]" all share this motive. Mir hates humanity that [[FantasticRacism treats her and her kind like dirt]], [[spoiler:Infel]] hates everyone in the second tower [[spoiler:after her sort-of wife]] was killed due to [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters the evil in humanity's heart]], and [[spoiler:the planet itself]] hates humanity after [[GaiasLament all the exploitations they've done to her]], although she still shows some love and appreciation for them. The boss battle themes for the the two latter, as least in their initial phases, are full of words like "hate" and "kill."

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', where Hatred is considered a heroic virtue. Naturally, [[SuperSoldier the Space Marines]] can hate harder than most regular humans, and the [[KnightTemplar Black Templars]] are considered fanatical zealots ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards by other Space Marines]]''. Taken to its logical conclusion with the Black Templar [[WarriorMonk Chaplains]] who are even more hateful than '''[[UpToEleven other Black Templar]]'''. To quote one such Chaplain:

* ''Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride'': Zira holds an immense grudge against Simba for killing Scar, who was her mate. She is raising her son Kovu into hating all Pridelanders. Later in the film she stoops as low as [[MoralEventHorizon threatening to kill her daughter]] Vitani, [[EvenEvilHasStandards which horrifies]] her former followers enough [[MookFaceTurn to turn against her and]] join Simba's pride. Unfortunately, [[TooDumbToLive she stubbornly refuses to let go of her hatred]] which causes her [[KarmicDeath to fall into the river]], even refusing to let Kiara, Simba's daughter, save her. Interestingly, her name, Zira, literally means "hate".
