** There's also [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Russ Cargill]] in the Movie who, after the dome is destroyed, turns a shotgun on Homer. (He does manage to ''superficially'' keep his cool, only losing his dignity when [[spoiler: Maggie]] knocks him out.)

* In the miniseries ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeResolute'', Cobra Commander is [[AxCrazy a little... "off" to start with]], but by the end of the series, he hacks a roomful of his own men apart and paints a cobra symbol on the wall in blood because one guy had the nerve to tell him that ''the death ray was not fully charged at the time''.

* ''Franchise/GIJoe'':
** In [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeTheMovie the movie]], another failed plot causes the rest of Cobra's leadership to lose patience and begin considering overthrowing Cobra Commander. Commander's already pretty stressed out at this point and the added shock of his minions putting him on trial causes him to ''snap'', leading to one of the most spectacular [[http://ccletsitallout.ytmnd.com/ screaming fits]] in the history of film.
-->"Unsubstantiated fantasy! LIES! ''LIES!!'' '''LLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!'''

** [[BigBad Yellow Diamond]] in her first appearance on the show, practically goes mad with rage when [[spoiler: [[HeelFaceTurn Peridot refuses to follow orders in letting the Cluster destroy Earth]] and ends up calling her a [[FantasticSlur clod]]. She then immediately attempts to kill Peridot through remote detonating her communicator, thwarted only by Steven and Garnet's quick intervention.]]

* President SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor suffers from one of these at the beginning of the Justice Lords arc in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. As the alternate-dimension League close in on him, he's cryptically mumbling "They couldn't see the beauty! No imagination! It could have been so perfect!" We never learn exactly what Luthor was up to prior to this, but the way normally cool-headed Lex seems to be coming apart indicates it was an outcome he obviously didn't plan for. Also, [[spoiler:he's killed TheFlash.]] When Superman finally confronts him, Lex actually threatens to start a nuclear war if Supes doesn't back down.

** Amon/[[spoiler:Noatak]] has one after [[spoiler:his fraud of actually being a [[MakingASplash waterbender]] is revealed to his [[MugglePower Equalist]] followers. He flees with his brother (who like him is a {{Tykebomb}} to their vengeful former crime boss father) and "start anew". He's seen smiling, but it seems on some level he knew it would never work, because a single tear comes from his eye before his more despondent brother commits a MurderSuicide on them.]]
** 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 detatched. [[spoiler: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".]]

** Xanatos distinguishes himself as not having one, [[TheBlockBusterBuster he doesn't have a breaking point]], unlike all the other show's villains, as he can bounce back from his defeats while keeping a relatively cool head. The closest he got to one was when all of his plans, schemes, In-laws, allies, and his EnemyMine with the Gargoyles failed to stop Oberon, and even after that, he recovers enough to help work things out.
