** Undyne from the same game is the living embodiment of HotBlooded, but if you have the nerve to [[spoiler:kill her best friend Papyrus]], you'll know that you ''really'' crossed a line when you find her enthusiasm suddenly replaced with a ''deathly'' calm rage.

** Undyne from the same game is the living embodiment of HotBlooded, but if you have the nerve to [[spoiler:kill her best friend Papyrus]], you'll know that you ''really'' crossed a line when you find her enthusiasm suddenly replaced with a ''deathly'' calm rage. Increased immensely during her Genocide Run fight. While she normally would be having an epic speech, all you get from her is DEAD SILENCE.

** In "The Christmas Invasion", the Doctor kills the Sycorax leader by irising open the floor beneath his feet, announcing, "No second chances. I'm that sort of man." Moments later, he has a second moment against the Prime Minister, after she shoots down the retreating fleet, killing thousands needlessly, as he sees it. He talks over her pleas, saying "I could bring down your government with a single word...no...six words. Six." He then turns and whispers to her aide, "Don't you think she looks tired?" This ''alters the course of history'' and strongly reverberates all the way through to the end of Series 3 of ''Doctor Who'' and the ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' miniseries ''[[Series/TorchwoodChildrenOfEarth Children of Earth]]''. Between Harriet Jones' speech proving that sometimes the StrawmanHasAPoint and the aftermath, this has gone from a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome to a WhatTheHellHero moment.
** There's a quote from "The Family of Blood" that sums up this trope:

* In Finnish language, this is called ''valkoinen raivo'' ("white rage") opposed to ''musta raivo'' ("black rage") on RoaringRampageOfRevenge. A person experiencing white rage is described to be completely calm, rational and in one's senses yet able to kill people like squashing bugs. [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons German soldiers in WWII]] ''were horrified'' on [[FinnsWithFearsomeForests Finnish]] completely ruthless attitude on war and towards the enemy. One of the reasons why partisan warfare failed at Finnish front was that the ''Finns simply hunted down each and every partisan and killed them without mercy'' while leaving the Soviet civilians intact.

[[spoiler: At the time, he has no way of knowing that Blair had cut a hole in the elevator via a blowtorch and drop the bomb through.]] Probably all that saved Rachins was that Jimís sentinel senses also heard his fellow officers arriving.
