** Gaara, whose sand provided him with such perfect protection that he'd never been hit, much less felt physical pain (up to a certain point, though), is stabbed in the shoulder by Sasuke. Gaara wonders what that warm, wet stuff is and then goes ''[[ChewingTheScenery nuts]]'' when he [[MinorInjuryOverreaction realizes it's his own blood]].\\
\\
He has an even bigger one during his final battle with Naruto later that day. For all his life, Gaara's been driven by his hatred and rage, and in the final decisive clash, Naruto's love for his friends gave him the power to overcome Gaara. Realizing that his entire philosophy was wrong makes Gaara lose it completely, screaming while Naruto continues to crawl towards him. Despite this, it's Naruto's understanding of his history that helps him let go of his hate at last.

* [[spoiler:Fenrir the Princess of Disaster]] has one in ''{{Pretear}}'' when Mawata is saved by her family and Sasame ''appears'' to have second thoughts about siding with her. However, [[spoiler:considering before her FaceHeelTurn she was already [[ShrinkingViolet an insecure, needy young girl]] and [[LoveMakesYouEvil fell when Hayate rejected her love]] ]], this isn't so much a sudden change in personality as it is a revelation that [[spoiler: Takako, [[UsedToBeASweetKid the sweet girl she used to be]], is still there underneath the villain, and is not beyond salvation. Soon, [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight Himeno succeeds into bringing Takako/Fenrir back to the side of good]].]]

** [[MagnificentBastard Spandam]] deserves special mention as he some has truly beautiful meltdowns throughout Enies Lobby, his big first one is when he hears Luffy has broken in, but he doesn't get clear message of details from his men . Assuming Luffy has been captured he goes to gloat to the chained Robin and Franky asking the government goon on the phone how badly damaged the invading pirates are. The goon reports a army has broken though all the tower of justice and that Luffy has taken out 5000 men, much to Spandam to [[https://maurusrealm.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/spandam-shocked.jpg stricken shock]]. Spandam's next big one is when he claims that Luffy and the crew will never be able to save Robin as they face to face with TheGovernment, pointing at the flag with pride, Luffy turns to Usopp and asks him to burn the flag, Usopp does so thus declaring war on the entire world

** Spandam truly comes apart at the end of the arc, when he drags Robin towards to end of bridge of hesitation (tasting victory) BUT THEN he gets shot down in flames. Getting up in fury he screams who did that and sees Usopp the ''Sniper King'' on top of the Tower of justice [[BigDamnHeroes posing like a boss]] and gets even more outraged when none of his men can shoot back at Usopp, then Robin gets her cuffs off and slaps his face bloody and Franky crushes him with a elephant. But still not taking the hint, Spandam insanely order his men to blow the crew out of the water when they are escaping the Buster Call, screaming that the whole situation is impossible and is cut short when Robin snaps his spine in two.

** The finale, which is two episodes after that, unsurprisingly has this happen to [[spoiler:[=MaloMyotismon=] himself. Digidestined from all over the world use their digivices to to [[WeakenedByTheLight weaken him with light]], so he tries to use the darkness from the Dark Spore children to withstand the light. Unfortunately for him, this backfires and his breakdown only gets worse when the Dark Spore children become Digidestined themselves and [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath start talking about their hopes and dreams, which causes his darkness to be expelled and him to lose his body parts until only his shadow remains,]] and that shadow is left [[ThisCannotBe screaming that the paltry children as he calls them cannot make him disappear and that he will not allow that to happen to him]].]]

** Later, Mummymon gets to join in on the fun. [[spoiler:First he's ForcedToWatch as [=MaloMyotismon=], a reincarnated Myotismon, torture-murders his partner-in-crime Arukenimon right in front of him and there's nothing he can do about it. How does he react afterwards? [[ThisIsUnforgivable He flips out, flies into a tear-filled rage, and attacks [=MaloMyotismon=] in an attempt to avenge his beloved partner]], even screaming his FamousLastWords, "THEN I WILL TEACH YOU TO FEAR ME!!" which ends with him [[ImMelting being melted, complete with a horrible scream]] courtesy of [=MaloMyotismon's=] Crimson Mist.]]

* Harry [=McDowell=] of the ''{{Gungrave}}'' anime is always completely calm and collected, no matter how bad a situation he's in, and never fires a weapon himself, until Brandon Heat, his best friend points a gun at him. Harry draws his own gun, fires at least five shots into him, then rams the barrel into his eye and fires a sixth. Later on he gets two other breakdowns as he's trying to deal with the fact that he killed his best friend whom he's trusted and relied on since they were children and whom he wanted to stay by his side.

** Aizen spends most of his screen time being invincible, and talking about how invincible he is, while never raising his voice or getting mad. [[spoiler:Once the Deicide Arc rolls around, he's defeated everyone that's fought him, and is on his way to create the King's Key and destroy Soul Society. Then Ichigo returns, having finished his training to use the Final Getsuga Tenshou. Ichigo manhandles Aizen with nothing but his physical strength, and Aizen loses some of his composure. Aizen transforms into monstrous form after monstrous form, yelling about how much better he is than Ichigo, and losing it more and more as they fight. Once Ichigo effortlessly destroys Aizen's perfectly chanted Black Coffin Kido spell, he cracks completely, and starts ranting at length about how he's the perfect existence, and that he can't be stopped by Ichigo. Then Ichigo blasts him with his Mugetsu technique, Aizen is rejected by the Hougyouku, and Urahara Kisuke's Sealing Kido activates, sealing him in an energy tree as he screams that he's the only one with the right to change the world. He's cut off mid sentence, and is next seen being sentenced to 20,000 years of imprisonment by the Central 46, since they can't execute him because he's immortal due to the Hogyoku. By that point, however, [[SubvertedTrope he's recovered and back to being his calm, mocking self]].

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'', [[spoiler:Kyubey,]] despite being completly emotionless, he noticeably starts to become more frantic as his plans start falling apart. He even ''stutters'' upon seeing [[spoiler:Sayaka summon her witch form, and is shocked to learn that Sayaka and Nagisa are also part of the Law of Cycles.]] And then he and a mass of Incubators shout '''IT'S ILLOGICAL!''' in unison once [[spoiler:their Isolation Field is destroyed.]] and finally he is reduced to ''genuine terror'' when [[spoiler:Demon Houmura appears and his entire race is now under her rule.]] In the movie's final scene, he is nothing more than a broken mad being.
