** Awaki Musujime has one when Kuroko gives her a breaking speech about exactly what is wrong with her as a person, and exactly why everything is ''her'' fault, not the fault of her powers or her circumstances. She goes so crazy for a moment that she collapses the entire building on Kuroko (who barely escapes alive thanks to Touma and Misaka showing up).

She practically [[OhCrap starts crying]] when she runs into [[CurbStompBattle Accelerator]] immediately after.

* ''Cyrus'' of all people has one of these in ''PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure'', [[spoiler:which leads to his HeelFaceTurn]].
* ''ShugoChara'': Nikaidou, [[spoiler:after capturing Su (And, previously, both of Amu's other Charas, although, by that time, they had been freed),]] seems to become more, and more unhinged, constantly ranting about his obssession with success and societal promotion, [[spoiler:although whether or not that was him trying to [[HeelFaceTurn (Thankfully, failingly.)]] "convince" him - self to not embrace his past Dreams is left un - clear.)]] and typing furiously upon his computer while once hitting his desk hard. [[spoiler: His only moments of knowingness come when Su speaks towards him, trying to convince him to let her out to clean his room and make him a new cup of coffee, rather than escape and, more noticeably, when she (Albeit inadvertently.) reminds him of his own Dreams.]] An odd case within the fact that only one protagonist [[spoiler:(Su, who is being held hostage.)]] ever gets to see most of it within action. And his face. Good God, [[NightmareFace his face.]] Also [[spoiler:becomes completely subverted during The Anime's finale/conclusion of the manga's third arc: Gozen breaks down, but it's not at all villanous: Goxen has been revealed to be Hikaru, the boy that Amu encountered [[CreepyChild (Within an, at times, ''very disturbing'' fashion.)]] before - hand, and he is crying through - out years of repressed sadness due towards his extraordinarily strict upbriging, which the return of his Heart's Egg towards him lets completely out, thus stopping his usual (albeit false) [[EmotionlessGirl extraordinarily unfeeling temperament.]]]]

* {{Trigun}} [[spoiler:completely reversed this during the climactic showdown between Vash and Legato. There, ''Vash...'' the ''good guy'' was in a mad panic, while Legato... the ''bad guy'' was remaining calm and reserved.]]

* Somewhat similar to the {{Trigun}} example above, the ''protagonist'', Shinji Ikari, goes through one in ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion The End of Evangelion]]''. Normally, it would probably just fall under GoMadFromTheRevelation... except that [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Shinji's]] [[TraumaCongaLine misery]] leads him to [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum take it out on]] [[KillEmAll the rest of humanity]].

* ''SakuraGari'': Sakurako, Souma's {{Yandere}} sister, suffers a massive ([[TearJerker and heartbreaking]] one near the end. [[spoiler: S/he's actually a boy named Youya, desperately lonely and unstable, and s/he ends up commiting suicide when s/he thinks s/he's killed Souma.]] But not before... [[spoiler: after having locked Souma and Masataka away in a burning building, s/he stumbles in Lord Saiki's bedroom, whispering "Father... Sakurako has always wanted to see you...", then starting to chop up everything in sight with his/her trusty katana, crying and screaming "Why was I born? Why am I here? Why do I exist, Father, WHY?!" When s/he stops and realizes that Souma might be dead, s/he screams in horror, lets go of their WeaponOfChoice and then runs under the cherry trees...]] Few later, [[spoiler: we find him/her dead, his/her wrists slit open and their lifeless body inside the pool. And Souma bawls his eyes out with his/her lifeless body in his arms.]]

*** ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'' shows more of the fight from Accelerator's perspective, and he is having a prolonged FreakOut during his fight with Touma due to finally realizing [[HeelRealization what kind of a monster he is]] for killing the Misaka Sisters.

--> '''Keith''': NOBODY BEATS BANDIT KEITH! NOBODYYYYYYY!!!!
* Team Kenya leader Victor of ''{{Medabots}}'' tournament arc managed to pull of TheStoic to an admirable degree, never once shifting from his slightly angry looking frown for the whole season. He continues this throughout the whole of the final, calmly and ruthlessly sacrificing his teammates and outright destroying two of Team Japan's Medabots without once raising his voice... right up to the point where TheHero expresses his intention to keep fighting despite having lost weapons, mobility and all of his armour. Then Victor laughs. [[EvilLaugh Joker style]]. Along with his [[TheVoiceless previously silent Medabot]], who unleashes the hero's signature FinishingMove amid vitriolic ranting about the heroes [[IdiotHero abject]] [[SuicidalOverconfidence stupidity]] from the SlasherSmile sporting Victor. As one of the heroes notes, "Woah."

*** In ''Anime/DragonballZRevivalOfF'' Frieza goes through this ''three times'' and with each one he loses much more of his sanity and by the end he's left screaming in horror when he is defeated and sent back to hell.

* The Anti-Spirals (represented by their avatar the Anti-Spiral King) of ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' are archetypal inhumanly calm and dispassionate ScaryDogmaticAliens. Until the last episode. During the FinalBattle the Anti-Spirals unleash ''thousands of years'' worth of repressed emotion and [[HotBlooded Hot Blood]], ranting about the sacrifices they made to protect the universe and screaming that the protagonists are idiots who don't realize that their actions will lead to the end of everything.

* In ''FruitsBasket'', [[spoiler:Akito Sohma]] has a rather fragile grip on reality and thus it takes little to shake [[spoiler:her]] up. A first breakdown comes [[spoiler:after Kureno is freed from the curse]], causing [[spoiler:her]] to go from a scared but mostly kind child to full-on possessive and clingy, beating and locking up the other Zodiac members to keep them from "leaving" too. A second one comes towards the end of the series, [[spoiler:after Momiji is freed]], panicking [[spoiler:her]] again to the point of nearly stabbing [[spoiler:his]] mother with a knife. This breakdown is only intensified when [[spoiler:Hiro is freed]] ''in the middle of the attack'', leading [[spoiler: Akito]] to [[spoiler:stab Kureno in the back and then go off in a delirious state to attack Tohru Honda, who she blames for everything]]. However, [[spoiler: Tohru manages to actually ''get'' to Akito and talks to her kindly... and after Tohru almost falls victim to DeathByFallingOver in the middle of their [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight confrontation]], Akito ''finally'' realizes what a fucked-up bitch she is and has a HeelFaceTurn.]].

* Anime/{{FLCL}} has a strange one [[WidgetSeries (Anyone surprised?)]] when Naota reveals that he's absorbed the powers of Atomsk... it's Haruko that snaps, who immediately grabs her weapon ([[InstrumentOfMurder read: guitar]]) and lunges at Naota, screaming "THAT POWER'S MINE!!!"

Not only that, but Brooklyn took the mental breakdown to the logical extreme: he convinced himself [[TheBattleDidntCount his defeat never happened]], that everything was nothing but a nightmare, a bad dream that would end soon.]]
