* ''Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'' introduces us to the concept of an Obscurus, which is a rare and powerful magical parasite that is the end result of a powerful magical child being abused and forced to repress their magic until it canít be contained anymore. At which point the resulting PersonOfMassDestruction goes on a rampage destroying everything in its past, scared and angry after a lifetime of pain. A specific example would be [[spoiler: Credence Barebone: Heís abused and controlled by his FantasticRacist of an adoptive mother (along with his adoptive sisters, though he gets the worst of it), which has left him shy, deeply insecure and emotionally stunted. He has no friends besides his youngest sister Modesty and is mocked by the Shaws (particularly Henry Shaw Jr, who has no qualms about calling him a freak). This leaves him open to manipulation by Percival Graves/Gellert Grindlewald, who baits him with affection and the promise of teaching him magic so that the older man can use him for his own selfish reasons. And once Grindle!Graves gets what he wants, he has no issue throwing the poor guy away or calling him worthless. This leads to Credence hitting the RageBreakingPoint and willingly unleashing his Obscurus on New York City, which is as tragic as it is terrifying]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoBatmanMovie'' has ''the Joker'', of all people. The movie opens with Batman foiling his attempt to take over Gotham City, as ever...but when Joker tries waxing lyrical about how Batman's his ArchEnemy, Batman flatly denies there's anything special about Joker and outright states the villain means nothing to him, [[https://i2.wp.com/www.tor.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/batman-lego-trailer.jpg?fit=740%2C%209999&crop=0%2C0%2C100%2C309px reducing him to tears.]] Joker then decides the best way to make Batman hate him is [[spoiler:siccing a [[LegionOfDoom legion]] of [[BigBad Big Bads from across the multiverse on Gotham,]]]] which nearly wipes out the whole city. By the end of the movie, [[DespairEventHorizon Joker's fine with destroying everything in Gotham, himself included,]] as long as it proves he was Batman's Greatest Enemy.

** Also a Decontruction of the trope, as his police officer counterpart, Prendergast, is experiencing similar bad fortunes, with co-workers who don't respect him and can't wait to usher him off to retirement, a wife who walks all over him, and a general sense of fatigue for most of the film. However, he doesn't break, and in fact, delivers a beautiful TheREasonYouSuckSpeech to Foster.
