* ''DeepgateCodex'': Carnival is dangerous enough at the best of times, but when she gets sick of something [[spoiler:she goes into god mode, at which point not even the laws of physics can stop her single-handedly slaughtering ''half an army'' using a regular everyday ''handheld gardening fork'']].

** Harry himself shows traits of this. Despite being a fairly decent person, he too has moments where he looses control of his temper. [[spoiler:One good example would be after Bellatrix murders Sirius, where Harry briefly uses the Cruciatus Curse to bring her down]].

** Hagrid may be a GentleGiant, but if you do manage to get him into a real temper you'll find out that he's partially immune to spell damage and has more than enough strength to take down five armed attackers with his bare hands.

Added DiffLines:

** Sirius Black is also another one, despite being was innocent person and a escaped prisoner from Azkaban. One major example of his rage is [[NotHelpingYourCase when he slashed the Fat Lady's portrait because she refused to let him in without a password]].

* The entire Hradani race of the ''[[TheWarGods Bahzell]]'' series. The race was originally more Elf like, being taller and having fox like characteristics along with a longer life than humans (at a cost at not being able to use magic as direct as humans). Then Wizards start experimenting with the Rage a few had. During the last war they were converted into an evil force of berserkers. Until the few with natural unstoppable rage were able to rebel. It's to the point that if you give yourself to the rage you're immune to nearly all magic. The main character nearly kills the only good wizard left on the planet when [[BerserkButton he hears the word "wizard," triggering his rage]].

* An Italian adaptment of the ''ChansonDeRoland'' has the eponymous character gets into this state when he finds out the girl he saved and protected [[UngratefulBastard has eloped with an enemy soldier]]. The next books are all about him ravaging all around, from tearing apart any living thing he encounters to defeating an army of mercenaries throwing boulders and trees at them. To get him back to normal, his allies have to literally get his sanity back from where it fled to (the Moon).

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''[[Literature/HoratioHornblower Mr. Midshipman Hornblower]]'' story "The Spanish Galleys," Hornblower manages to capture one of the galleys with just a boat's crew. Partly this is because the galleys' effective crew (that is, those who aren't actually chained to the oars) is rather small, but even so it wouldn't have worked if Hornblower and his men weren't so enraged over the inhumane conditions the rowers are kept in.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Drenai}}'' saga:
** Rek from ''Literature/{{Legend}}'' suffers from explicitly named [[TheBerserker berserker rage]] in combat to a degree that even makes him immune to usually game-breaking PsychicPowers.
** Decado [[CloningBlues II]] has blacked out and killed everything in sight when put under severe stress.

* A particularly extreme example of this is Icarium from Steven Erikson's ''MalazanBookOfTheFallen''. Icarium, normally a gentle and creative fellow verging on pacifism, has a tendency to go into a berserker mode that's downright genocidal when provoked, usually followed by an inability to remember what just happened. In milder cases, this means he wakes up confused among the gutted bodies of whatever ferocious pack of creatures just attacked him. In a few more extreme cases, he woke up among the shattered ruins and dead citizens of ''entire civilizations'', completely unaware of what had just transpired.
