* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Goku was [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge able to break]] the [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]] barrier after his friend Krillin was blown up in sadistic fashion by Frieza, who then [[PapaWolf proceeded to threaten his son]]. Also, Gohan and Trunks from an alternate future obtained Super Saiyan this way (Gohan when the androids killed Piccolo, Trunks when they killed Gohan, as illustrated above). While his initial transformation was not ''quite'' this trope, Gohan's powerup into Super Saiyan 2 was triggered by Android #16 getting destroyed by Cell as he made a RousingSpeech to Gohan (made more tragic that, as a fully mechanical creature, 16 couldn't be revived). And Bardock went Super Saiyan this way after Berry [[TakingTheBullet took the bullet]] for him. Which, incidentally, [[StableTimeLoop started the Super Saiyan legend in the first place]].

** In the manga and ''Crystal'', Chibiusa's power as Sailor Chibi Moon awakens (and breaks the brainwashing Wiseman inflicted on her) when she sees Sailor Pluto die after breaking the final taboo and stopping time. This does not happen in the 90s anime.

** Interestingly enough, the [[AllThereInTheManual Brennus Files]] article on the subject noted that, while ''exceptionally'' rare, an overwhelmingly ''positive'' experience can cause a Manifestation just as easily as a ''negative'' one. One of the most powerful Metahumans, Elysium, manifested while dancing with the love of her life.

* Ryu in ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' gains the ability to transform into a dragon early on in the game, but for the first half of the game he only has access to his weakest form, Aura. It takes him seeing Captain Rasso massacre a village full of innocents (and forcing him to duel with a monster shortly afterwards) for him to unlock the much more powerful Kaiser transformation and awaken his latent powers (with his Aura form finally getting his Breath attack).
