Supertrope to VillainousBSOD.
VillainousBSOD. Not to confuse with BrokenHeel, which is a literal application of the term.

This is TruthInTelevision in the sense that people whose dreams and ambitions have been utterly crushed will in all likelihood take it quite poorly. However, RealLife does not have clear-cut heroes and villains -- well, maybe it's clear-cut to ''you'', but chances are there's somebody out there who vehemently disagrees with your take on who's good and who's bad. It's all a matter of perspective. So if you have something that you think is a real-life example of a villainous breakdown... ''[[Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease don't put it here]]''. Consider puttting your example under FreakOut (a trope for utter mental breakdowns in general) or OhCrap (a trope for when somebody realizes that they're about to have a bad time). If you ''really'' insist on your RealLife example going here, don't just slap it on. Take it to the discussion page. If we can reach a consensus that 90% of the global population would likely agree that your breakdown subject deserves the label of "villain", go ahead. Otherwise, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment we]] ''[[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment strongly]]'' [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment recommend that you keep your opinions to yourself]].[[noreallife]]

Another type of breakdown is when the villain becomes extremely furious when either something happens that isn't part of his plan or his plans end up being ruined, or both. Once pissed off, he may lose his temper and say such phrases as "WhyWontYouDie", "I've had it with you!", "YouBastard!", or even "ThisIsUnforgivable!". Either way, the villain will scream more and more at the other characters in fury before being bested by them.

them. A string of KickTheDog or BadBoss moments is another subtle way of indicating this, if the villain had previously displayed paternalistic feelings toward his men.
