* 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!!!"

* Brooklyn the invincible world champion from ''{{Beyblade}}'', after [[spoiler:he was defeated by Kai who at the time was considered the biggest loser in the entire series. 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.]]

* Hellmaster Phibrizzo from ''{{Slayers}} NEXT''. When his plan to have Lina cast the Giga Slave and destroy the world backfires due to [[spoiler:Lina being possessed by the Lord of Nightmares]], he completely flips out, eventually screaming out "I WANNA BE DESTROYED!". His wish is granted shortly afterwards.

* ''KarakuridoujiUltimo'': In chapter 11 Rune completely loses it, with an ultimate [[http://www.mangareader.net/770-42633-16/ultimo/chapter-11.html crazed look on his face, while bawling his eyes out at the same time.]] Then there's the fact he's perfectly willing to kill his best friend because he doesn't love him back, then commit suicide.

* In ''Anime/KillLaKill'', Nui Harime completely loses her fake cheery exterior once [[spoiler:Ryuko slices off her arms and Senketsu absorbs them,]] going into a MadnessMantra until [[spoiler: Rei Hououmaru rescues her. [[ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike Nui then rages her frustrations at her for picking her up]], all while [[HighPressureBlood her now-stubby arms spray blood in her face.]]]] From then on, her bubbly, happy smile is permanently replaced with a SlasherSmile.

* In chapter 272 of ''MahouSenseiNegima'', [[spoiler:Kurt Godel]] loses some of his composure when [[spoiler: Negi reveals that he knows that the Magical World is falling apart]]. Negi then accuses him of betraying the ideals of the people he looked up to in his youth [[spoiler: namely Arika and Nagi]]. [[spoiler: Godel]] gets pissed, calls Negi a "little boy who's too smart for his own good", and decides to ''force'' Negi to be his pawn. [[spoiler: It fails.]]

* [[MagnificentBastard Yokoya]] in LiarGame could lie, deceive and bribe his way through any situation. That is, until he met [[BewareTheHonestOnes Nao]] and [[TheChessmaster Akiyama]]. At the end of the Second round, he managed to profit greatly from the game, when everyone else had just managed to pay off their debts and gained nothing. He began [[EvilGloating gloating]] to Akiyama that he had lost, when Nao of all people [[BreakingSpeech mentioned]] how Yokoya had contradicted his earlier philosophy of dominance. Instead, he had turned to tricks to profit and unknowingly had three traitors on his side. "Even though you made the big money, Mr Yokoya, you lost the game to me."

* Isshiki gets one in ''{{RahXephon}}''. After spending the entire show trying to play the MagnificentBastard to prove that he isn't worthless he finally gets into a position where he can strike a definitive blow against the Mu... only to have it backfire spectacularly, leading directly to him losing his position and the OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness that he was working for denying ever having heard his name. He...doesn't take it well.

** The former main hero, Shinn Asuka, essentially shambles into this trope in a very painful way. When we first see him, he's well adjusted with the worst thing he had was a chip on his shoulder towards ORB. However, as the series progresses, he loses more people he cared about either by death (like Stella) or rejection (like Athrun) and once Kira Yamato becomes the main hero once more, Shinn's nothing more than one big ball of anger, forged that way by Rey and Durandal and so lost in it that he loses sight of everything.
