* ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' has a villain who gets his power from hatred. Heck, it's even in his title: The Knight of Resentment.

* The Black Cross King villain of the [[HimitsuSentaiGoranger first Super Sentai team]] gets reincarnated in the movie [[KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle]] through the power of hatred collected from every previously defeated Sentai villain.
** Old villains [[KyoryuSentaiZyuranger Griffozer]] and [[BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger Geildon]] would also use the power of hate to revive as Neo versions in ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger''.

* In a WhatIf story of ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' the Evronians weaponized it, creating a new breed of {{Super Soldier}}s from [[spoiler:Angus Fangus]] that has the strength to tear through tank armour ''bare-handed'' and is fueled by the negative emotions of the enemy-including hatred. This is also part of the [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy safety the Evronians put in them]]: they have an incredibly accelerated metabolism that weaken them extremely fast if they aren't feeding, meaning that the emotionally crippled Evronians have nothing to fear from them... And Paperinik and a force of US Army soldiers defeat them by [[SheateYourSword stopping to fight and thinking about happy things]] when [[EvilGloating their leader gloats about their hate making them stronger]].

* Leo attempts to invoke this trope in the ''Birthright'' route of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. Leo tries mustering up hatred for the Avatar for leaving Nohr in his fight against them in ''Birthright''. This ultimatly subverted, because unlike Takumi in ''Conquest'', Leo couldn't bring himself to kill the Avatar, due to still having some love for them. Despite initially attempting to quiet the Avatar, Leo eventually admits the truth of the Avatar's words before apologizing to them for lying about his hatred for them.
** Takumi in the ''Conquest'' route wants to point all of his hatred at the Avatar. [[spoiler: Ultimately, this is deconstructed, as his hatred for the Avatar allows Anankos to completely possess him at the end and leads to his downfall, forcing the party to MercyKill him]].

* Some Japanese {{Yokai}}, and especially the onryo or vengeful ghosts, are connected to the human world through their hatred. The Gashadokuro is a giant skeleton powered by collective hate and misery of all who died from famine and war and were never put to rest. The Kuchisake onna (Split-mouth Woman) is the ghost of a murdered woman who mutilates people in the same way that killed her or butchers them in their own homes if they get away. Teke Teke is a more modern one; the ghost of a school girl or young women who was split in half at the waist by a train and now take out her grudge on the living by making them look just like her.

* Demandred the Forsaken in ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' was stuck being AlwaysSecondBest to the ChosenOne, so he [[RivalTurnedEvil joined the Shadow]] and became one of the greatest threats to the world, because he hated the Chosen One more than anyone had hated anything, ''ever''. [[spoiler:Ultimately subverted: he joins the LastBattle with an unbeatable group of assets, then squanders them all by trying to force his nemesis into a one-on-one fight, completely missing that the guy's thousands of miles away. Instead, his hatred gets him killed like a chump by a total stranger before the Chosen One ever learns that he's alive.]]

* Russians again, this time it's civilians -- [[http://www.latimes.com/world/europe/la-fg-russia-intolerance-20160118-story.html From an LA Times article]] about anti-gay activism in St. Petersberg, formerly the most open and tolerant city in the country: "Taking a cue from President Vladimir Putin, who has whipped up anti-Western sentiments to advance a nationalist agenda and boost his domestic approval ratings during an economic crisis, [anti-gay activists] often frame their stance as defending the country against foreign values."

* [[TheDragon Sion]] in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2'' is a corpse held together by the power of his own hate. If you convince him to let go of his hate, his consciousness falls apart.
