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.

The tendency of relatively calm and composed villains to lose their cool over the course of the story. Usually happens to arrogant [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]]-type villains (especially if said villain is a SmugSnake), as control of the situation slips from his or her grasp and things come up that they [[DidntSeeThatComing Didn't See Coming]]. Most notable when it happens towards the end of the story to show how pathetic the BigBad is when things are not going exactly as planned ("ThisCannotBe"). Especially apparent if they previously had CreepyMonotone or DissonantSerenity, and [[MoodWhiplash suddenly]] start ChewingTheScenery (when they do this because their plan is ''succeeding'', it's more of a case of DrunkOnTheDarkSide). Dirty Cowards also suffer from this, especially when they are cornered.

Similar to OhCrap, though the difference lies in that OhCrap moments involve a single moment where the character finds that they are screwed, while Villainous Breakdowns have them see it coming from miles away. The good-guy counterpart is the HeroicBSOD.
