* Peridot has a few of these, [[PlayedForLaughs Played for Laughs]], in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', her [[SanitySlippage sanity slipping]] as the season progresses, to the point of repeatedly screaming the word "DIE!" while trying to blast the Gems with remote lasers.

* Peridot has a few of these, [[PlayedForLaughs Played for Laughs]], in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', her [[SanitySlippage sanity slipping]] as the season progresses, to the point of repeatedly screaming the word "DIE!" while trying to blast the Gems with remote lasers. She eventually resorts to kidnapping Steven to try and get off Earth. After that fails, she just sits down and laughs sadly.


Added DiffLines:

*** [[spoiler: After they unfused, Jasper is seen hunting down Lapis, trying to reform Malachite.]]
*** She had a massive breakdown at the end of ''Earthlings''. [[spoiler: She tried fusing with a Gem Monster, only to unfuse and become corrupted herself. As she's [[BodyHorror slowly corrupting]], she attacks Steven (who was trying to help her) and starts ranting about how every moment of her life was devoted to hating what Rose did, right before fully becoming a Gem Monster and then getting poofed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'':
** Father had quite a fair few throughout the series. His last one in the series finale [[spoiler:after Numbuh 1 steals his pipe]] is a sight to behold.
** After his treachery is revealed in "Operation E.N.D.", Numbuh 274 (Chad Dickson) ''loses it'', [[MotiveRant ranting about how he had been running the KND years and wasn't going to have his legacy ruined by a bunch of]] "[[WhamLine snot-nosed brats]]", before taking Tommy hostage and setting the Moon Base for a direct course to the sun. As Numbuh 1 idly points out, he sounded ''just'' like a teenager. [[spoiler:Seasons later, however, revealed all of this to be an act]].
*** Chad has another one in "Operation T.R.E.A.T.Y." that lasts the entire episode. It begins to simmer when [[spoiler:Numbuh Infinity tells him that the GKND representative will be Numbuh 1 and not him]], gets worse when a ChainedHeat situation leaves him stuck with a very vitriolic Numbuh 1 (who is just about the last person he wants to see), and culminates in him fighting Nigel in a ''DuelToTheDeath'', screaming about how he's still the best there is, only to be defeated.

** [[MagnificentBastard Azula]] becomes progressively more unhinged (see pictures) throughout the GrandFinale, kicked off by [[spoiler:the betrayal of Mai and Ty Lee]]. She really starts going nuts when [[spoiler:her father Ozai promotes her to Fire Lord, only to name himself the ''Phoenix King'', effectively rendering her a [[PuppetKing Puppet Queen]]]], goes even farther when she fires her servants out of paranoia when she thinks they are plotting against her and [[spoiler:she hallucinates a conversation with her mother]], and climaxes after [[spoiler:Zuko and Katara interrupt her coronation and defeat her in an Agni Kai]]. Her last scene [[spoiler:is of her [[BrokenTears weeping, screaming, and writhing on the ground]]; chained, and pathetic. Zuko can only [[SympathyForTheDevil look on in pity]], while Katara can't even bear to watch]]. WordOfGod has stated (and it is later shown in the comics) that [[spoiler:she's now in a hospital and is supervised around the clock (not that it makes the breakdown any less disturbing to watch)]].

** On a much lesser scale: [[spoiler:[[JerkAss Kevin]]]] has one in "Beach City Drift" after [[spoiler:he wins a street race versus [[FusionDance Stevonnie]]...only to have them be a GracefulLoser when he tries to [[UnsportsmanlikeGloating rub their face(s) in it]]]]. At the end—as [[spoiler:Stevonnie]] drives off with a [[IAmNotLeftHanded snarky parting shot]]—[[spoiler:Kevin]] is reduced to [[spoiler:squalling incoherently in their wake about their [[InsaneTrollLogic imagined "obsession" with him]] due to being incapable of taking [[TheNarcissist having someone paying attention to him, even through hate]].]]

** Zaheer's might have started when [[spoiler:[[LoveInterest P'li]] is killed; though it more immediately makes him "let go his earthly tether" and gain the mythical Airbender power of true flight, it made him very cold and detached. His plan to poison Korra to invoke the Avatar State while she dies (which would permanently end the Avatar cycle) [[GoneHorriblyRight goes as one]] [[BullyingADragon might expect]]. Korra, gooned on all the power of the Avatar State as it attempts to resist the lethal poison, clearly has Zaheer's murder on her mind, and he can do nothing but flee her [[PersonOfMassDestruction terrible wrath]]. Though he eventually gets the upper hand as the poison wears Korra down, he is then assailed by all the new Airbenders. His efforts to escape their tornado fail, and he's LaughingMad and [[ThisCannotBe angrily delusional]] after being thwarted in his attempt to kill Korra... and then Bolin [[HumiliationConga literally]] "puts a sock in it".]]
