** Ingrid, the Snow Queen spent most of her life fearing her powers over ice. One day [[spoiler: she accidentally killed one of her sisters with her powers and her other sister imprisoned her in a magic urn, thinking she was a monster.]] This twisted her thinking so that she believes only those who have magic could love her and everyone else deserved to die.

* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "The Survivors", the [[EnergyBeings Dowd]] Kevin Uxbridge abandoned his life-long pacifist beliefs and wiped out the entire Husnock race (of which there were about fifty billion in the galaxy) with a single thought after the Husnock attacked his home colony and killed his beloved wife. Immediately afterward he realized the extent of his crime and sentenced himself to the CruelMercy of living alone on the dead colony world with only a hollow copy of his wife for company and permanent reminder of his deed.

** The Twelfth Doctor temporarily becomes this in the final three episodes of Series 9. In "Face The Raven", Clara stops him from going on a rampage when [[spoiler: she -- his Morality Chain! -- '''must''' die when her efforts to stop a plot go horribly awry]], but it's clear that he can only keep his anger and anguish in check for so long. Next in "Heaven Sent", [[spoiler: he spends ''billions of years'' '''''and lives''''' escaping a torture chamber set up by his own people]]. He emerges from this TraumaCongaLine at the DespairEventHorizon and hot for {{Revenge}} and succor in "Hell Bent": [[spoiler: he risks the entire universe by saving Clara at the moment of her death, a fixed moment in time, heedless of her and others' wishes and entreaties. When he tries to mind wipe her to keep her safe, she tinkers with the device. Upon being told this, and uncertain whether the tinkering had any effect, Clara and Doctor agree to push the button together and let fate decide; ultimately, ''he'' loses most of his memories of ''her'']], whereupon he finally admits to himself and others that he let his anguish get the better of him, accepts his fate as a proper punishment, and allows things -- and himself -- to return to their proper state. This is in many respects an uber-example of the trope because far from being a potential "Destroyer of Worlds", for a brief period the Doctor is actually headed to become Destroyer of ''Time''.

Has created an unstable, dirty nuclear device with [[ChaoticStupid a dodgy timer]]. [[HonourBeforeReason Which you have just primed]]. He [[UnstoppableRage won't care about the consequences]]: [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge he'll take you down as and when he is able to fix solidly on your position and got a clean line of sight.]] And, the fallout won't be pretty or discriminate, however low-yield he appears in comparison to others on this list.
