[[caption-width-right:300:So angry their noses touch!]]

->''"Your lyrics lack subtlety! You can't just have your characters announce how they feel! [[HypocriticalHumor That makes me]] [[TropeNamer feel angry!]]"''
-->-- '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFBhR4QcBtE Robot Devil]]''', ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''

A classic rule in textwriting is to ShowDontTell. That includes emotions. If a character is happy, that should be obvious from his actions -- not from the fact that he says "I'm happy" out loud. Just imagine what RealLife would be like if people really did that... ''[[ImagineSpot Bob: I'm feeling really angry today!]]''

This trope ''can'' be used for comedic effect. It can also be rather scary when the "so happy" line is delivered with [[TranquilFury barely concealed rage]] by a skilled actor. TropesAreNotBad, after all. And if it's a children's show that is trying to teach children how to deal with their emotions, this is certainly a better idea than hitting someone.

See AsYouKnow for the expository version of this trope. Compare AndThatsTerrible or FlatJoy.

Appears quite a lot in cases of LullDestruction. Do not confuse with IsThisWhatAngerFeelsLike, in which the perpetually jubilant character deals with anger for the first time (although that can certainly lead to this), or IllKillYou.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* This is how a MISAKA in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' actually speaks- once you know how a [[HiveMind MISAKA]] is [[CloningBlues different]] from the original [[ShockAndAwe Misaka Mikoto]], it's both creepy ''and'' rather [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman tragic]].
* ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'', from Kiku/Japan: "An unpleasant sensation..." Cue the DiscretionShot.
* In ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', Gretel says or implies she feels a little bad about using two local orphans as decoys, pretty much ensuring their death.
* One of the things that Kyon does as an UnreliableNarrator in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya''. For example, he'll say he's terrified about something but only rarely will he show actions that actually show it. Kyon's ThatMakesMeFeelAngry style is also in contrast to the story's treatment of Haruhi's inner state, which is almost exclusively ShowDontTell.
** Once he was narrating how scared he was about a monster; when Itsuki mused that he sure didn't act scared. We were treated to him devoting a paragraph or two of him listing how he had the traits of being scared... until that trails off and it isn't addressed again.
** What's more, one of the common devices that the series uses is to have Kyon's actions contradict his words; he tells us things that are different than what's shown. Example from the anime's chronological first episode: Kyon tells us that he's not interested in Haruhi, while the animation shows us that he's very obviously checking her out over the course of a few weeks.
* Sagara Sōsuke from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', when he's [[MostDefinitelyNotAVillain attempting to convince]] {{muggles}} that he's [[TheStoic feeling normal human emotions]].
-->'''Sōsuke:''' You perceive wrongly. I feel unimaginable happiness wasting time talking with women. I'm that type of human.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Wrath has a habit of monologuing on how certain things make him angry, generally in the vein of how much he hates puny humans. ''Brotherhood'' usually makes him sound anything but furious during these monologues, giving the impression that he's incapable of broadcasting emotion properly. [[TranquilFury Or that he's just really skilled at hiding his rage]]. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown For a few seconds, anyway.]] His name is "''Wrath''", not "rage" or "fury". The emotion of wrath is not nearly as overt as the others, and it is not mutually exclusive with tranquility.
* In ''Manga/XxxHOLiC'', Watanuki does this in [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/xxxholic/v16/c190/9.html chapter 190]].
* [[CatchPhrase I'm in despair!]] The fact that ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' uses this trope constantly has left us in despair!
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', [[spoiler:the Nine-Tails Demon Fox roars]] �Narutoooo!!!! You have angered me!!!! Narutoooooo!!!!!!� [[spoiler:after Naruto rips the chakra from the Fox's body, claiming it for his own, thus allowing Naruto to fully control the Fox's power.]]
** Sai, being trained from his early years to be TheStoic, often has to emote this way. He's been getting better, though.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''
** Touji is prone to this in his first appearance in the anime, talking quite plainly about how angry he is about what happened to his sister.
** Mari in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' has a habit of narrating everything she does, thinks and feels out loud.
* Elgala from the original manga of ''Manga/ExcelSaga'' [[ThirdPersonPerson does the exact same thing]], [[NoIndoorVoice with an emphasis on the "loud"]], and [[SelectiveObliviousness minus any conscious knowledge that she's actually speaking]] (she thinks all her co-workers are mind-reading mutants).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comedy]]
* One prominent stand-up comedian parodied this. Something along the lines of "Why do girls say 'I'm gonna cry!', and then cry, but not say 'I'm gonna laugh', and then laugh?"
* Creator/SteveMartin during his famous "Excuse Me" rant. "I'm sorry, I'm angry!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk The Incredible Hulk]] is [[http://www.hulkmovie.com/images/hulkmash/hr121.jpg practically]] a poster child of this trope. There's a reason why YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry exists, after all. Well, at least he ''looks'' angry. Always. (Until {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s [[ExecutiveMeddling meddle]] with the franchise: [[http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hulkey-Pokey-Hulk-Dancing-Plush-Figure/9189398 does this look angry to you?]]) [[HulkSpeak Hulk can be forgiven for Hulk's constant reminders of Hulk's current mood. Hulk's mood very important to know for people around Hulk. Furthermore, Hulk not very articulate.]]
* Judge Roy Bean is presented as doing this in ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck''. Played entirely for comedy because [[TheStoic he only has one facial expression that has no emotion visible on it]], and his voice is implied to be similarly monotonic. Which is kind of weird because the actual Judge Bean was practically an actor on the bench, with a great love of delivering moving monologues, and if he ever said anything monotone it was purely for [[CreepyMonotone effect]].
* Played straight and subverted in ''JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac''. Johnny is in a suicidal mood while he's talking to his mental image of the rabbit he nailed to his wall. Through both the dialogue, Johnny's facial expression, and his body language it is immensely clear exactly how he's feeling at the moment. At the end, with a tear sliding down his cheek and an even more pained facial expression than normal (which is quite saying something), he says, "Bunny?... I'm not happy."
* There are a few examples of characters doing this in the earlier ''{{Tintin}}'' comics.
* John Doe, the Generic Man, a villain from the DCComics title ''The Heckler''. He talks ''entirely'' like this, because actually ''emoting'' wouldn't be generic. In fact, it's not just emotions, he also describes himself saying things, rather than just saying them; so instead of "Could you get me a newspaper?" or even "I want you to get me a newspaper", he says "I am instructing you to get me a newspaper".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* A common problem with political cartoons, as noted in [[http://www.cracked.com/article_18680_political-cartoons-lowest-form-communication.html?wa_user1=5&wa_user2=Weird+World&wa_user3=article&wa_user4=flashback this Cracked article]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In "Supernatural: TheAbridgedAnimation", Dean yells out "I'M ANGRY ABOUT THIS!" several times throughout the series.
* In the sequel to ''AVeryPotterMusical'', ''A Very Potter Sequel'', Harry screams, "I'M IN A RAGE! THIS IS THE MADDEST I'VE EVER BEEN!"
* ''Critical Miss'' of ''Website/TheEscapist'' has this beautiful bit of ''Franchise/MassEffect'' [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/critical-miss/8820-Critical-Miss-Mass-Effect fanfiction.]] It is, of course, a little context-sensitive.
* Used unintentionally in ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'':
--> '''Socrates:''' You're making me angry, Calvin. And when I get angry, it makes me [[RougeAnglesOfSatin what]] to use my claws[[WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma ,]] and tear something up!
* The ''CodeGeass'' fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5169564/1/Euphemia-s-Surprise Euphemia's Surprise]] has many of its characters speaking this way. This becomes a bit ironic if you consider that ''CodeGeass'' itself is an [[WorldOfHam over-the-top]] [[TearJerker heart-wrenching]] {{Melodrama}}!
* Parodied in ''[[FanFic/TamersForeverSeries Theory of Chaos]]'':
-->''Takato was exhausted.''
-->'''Takato''': ''God, I'm exhausted!''
-->''Yes, Takato, I already said that, thank you! Ahem, anyway, Takato was exhausted�''
-->'''Takato''': ''God, I'm-''
-->''[[InteractiveNarrator SHUT UP TAKATO]]!!''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Played for laughs in a scene in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', when callous insurance executive Mr. Huph begins his reprimand for his employee Mr. Incredible with "I'm not happy Bob, not happy", and indeed looks like he's never been happy once in his entire life.
* This is probably Dug's defining trait in ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}:'' "I do not like the cone of shame." [[JustifiedTrope Not that you can expect much nuance out of a]] ''[[JustifiedTrope dog]]'' [[JustifiedTrope or anything]]. Also justified as an artifact of the computer translation of what the dog is -- ''[[RunningGag Squirrel!!]]''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* In ''Film/AustinPowers'':
-->'''Dr. Evil:''' That makes me angry! And when Dr. Evil gets angry, Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset! And when Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset... people DIE!
* ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'' has this when Giselle gets angry, but here it's justified because it's the first time she's actually ''felt'' the emotion anger. This also happens to be her LoveEpiphany, so it's possibly the first time she felt any strong emotion toward someone.
-->'''Giselle:''' You make me so...so...''ANGRY!''...[[MoodWhiplash Ha ha! I'm angry!]]... I'm angry... I'M ANGRY! ''([[MoodWhiplash punches Robert in the arm]])''
* ''Daft Queens'' has Yihoshi's semi-imaginary friend strangling him while she says, "I am very angry!"
* Used for comedic effect in the finale of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', where calm, collected and rational Egon calmly explains to his fellow Ghostbusters that he's "terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought". (Anyone would be, seeing how he's facing the end of the world as administered by [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever a giant version of]] [[ItWasHisSled the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man]]. Blame Ray...)
* In CabinFever, Marcy uses an awkwardly irrelevant metaphore about plane crashes to tell Paul "This makes me feel horny." To the director's credit, her speech as is probably has a more plausable finesse to it then if she'd just grabbed him and said [[GreatWayToGo "Well, we're gonna die anyway. Let's screw."]] It goes on to score a full trifecta of [[BadWritingIndex bad writing]] in less then a minute, as this scene leads into a CoitusEnsues moment where Paul tells Marcy he's concerned [[AsYouKnow because they aren't using a condom]], which prompts her [[TemptingFate unbelievably naieve]] reply: "Don't worry! I'm healthy."
* The albino ghost twins in ''Film/TheMatrix Reloaded''. Probably to show that they're UncannyValley Guys. "We are getting aggravated." "Yes, we are." All the while utterly deadpan.
* Similarly, in ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'', Data states how he feels about a drink in Ten-Forward, [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because he had just installed his emotion chip:
-->'''Data:''' ''(gleefully)'' Yes! I ''hate'' this! It is ''revolting!''\\
'''Guinan:''' More?\\
'''Data:''' Please!
* ''Franchise/StarWars''
** ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'': "[[StrangledByTheRedString Anakin, you're]] breaking my heart." Ironically, Anakin probably did need to be told, and he still didn't get it. In the {{Novelization}}, he got it after she told him. [[IfICantHaveYou He just didn't care]].
** Pretty much the prequels in general: "I don't like sand." "I'm overwhelmed," [[FlatJoy said in the same vacant tone one might use when choosing a plastic bag over a paper one]].
* Parodied in ''Film/TalladegaNightsTheBalladOfRickyBobby'': After Ricky checks to see that there are tickets saved for the ''extremely'' unlikely chance that his father will come to the race, the guy at the ticket counter remarks to a co-worker, "That's the saddest thing I ever seen in my life, y'all! That boy leaves two tickets for his daddy at every race and he never shows up... The human heart is ''such'' a mystery." Note that the two workers at the counter decide to hock the tickets immediately afterwards.
* A perfectly sensible example occurs at the end of the first ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movie. After all, it's the first thing Barbossa has felt in ''ten years''.
-->'''Barbossa:''' I ''feel''... cold...
* ''Film/TheProducers'': "I'm hysterical! And I'm wet!" [Slap] "I'm in pain! I'm in PAIN, and I'm WET, and I'm STILL HYSTERICAL!"
* ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow''
** The movie has the line "I'm cold, I'm wet and I'm just plain scared!"
** Also, the entire "Rose Tint My World" song is just a laundry list how the characters are feeling. "I feel released / Bad times deceased / My confidence has increased" Tell us how you really feel, Janet.
* ''SinCity'': "I can only express puzzlement, that borders on alarm."
* Unfortunately, the only line most people know from ''Film/{{Network}}'' is the end of Howard Beale's rant: "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" And that wasn't him expressing his own feelings (at least, not directly), but what he was instructing the viewers to do.
* In ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'', a peasant who doesn't want to go on the cart of dead plague victims tries to convince everyone that he's just fine: "I feel happy! I feel happy!"
** And of course, when the Black Knight offers silence to Arthur's request that he join the Knights in their search for the Grail, Arthur pauses for a moment, then replies "You make me sad."
* From ''Film/{{Twins}}'': "For the first time in my life I... PISSED OFF!"
* Rare dramatic example: in the film ''Manhattan'', Mariel Hemingway's line "Now I don't feel so good" is delivered with such innocence that it's just heart-breaking.
* [[TropesAreNotBad Actually used very well]] in ''Film/TheGodfather''. "Only don't tell me you're innocent. Because it insults my intelligence. It makes me very angry." Michael Corleone shows no anger while delivering this line, instead exhibiting a cold lack of emotion that makes the line very sinister and somewhat chilling.
* In ''Mickey Blue Eyes'', a woman who had been left at the altar isn't dealing with it well. She keeps saying "I'm so happy for you!" while breaking down and crying.
* [[IceQueen Miss White]] in ''Film/{{Clue}}'' has trouble even describing the emotion, and stumbles through metaphor. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8d8y4BLWtI Madeline Kahn's delivery is priceless.]]
* ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'' has a particularly silly example from Emperor Commodus. "It vexes me. I'm terribly vexed." A deleted scene does give a little more weight to this scene, however, since we see that just before saying this, Commodus had been in a rage and hacked at a statue of his father with a sword for a good long time. At least in that form it would have shown how, just below the surface, Commodus was becoming more and more unhinged and his behavior was erratic.
* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/{{Signs}}'':
-->'''Graham:''' Ahh! I'm insane with anger!
* In one scene of ''Film/ACinderellaStory'', Fiona told her daughters she was upset. When one of the daughters told her she didn't seem to be upset, she said it was because of botox.
* Played with in ''Film/{{Scream 3}}''. Disguised as [[spoiler:Dewey]], the killer has a phone conversation with [[spoiler:Jennifer Jolie's bodyguard]] while [[spoiler:he's looking through Dewey's trailer]]. When he insults "[[spoiler:Dewey]]" over the phone, the killer responds with "That makes me... angry!" (with a definitive emphasis of rage on that last word), while bursting in and stabbing [[spoiler:him]] in the back.
* "Oh, Film/BlackDynamite. I'm ''so'' happy."
* From the AlanAlda vehicle ''The Four Seasons'':
-->'''Jack:''' I'm sorry to have to tell you this.\\
'''Kate:''' What?\\
'''Jack:''' You're making me angry.\\
'''Kate:''' You're angry? Right now?\\
'''Jack:''' I'm enraged.\\
'''Kate:''' How was I supposed to know? Maybe you can stamp your foot next time. Or try this: WWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!
* Ron Burgundy in {{Anchorman}} did this all the time, leading to some of the funniest lines in the movie.
--> '''Ron''': I'M TRAPPED IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTION!
* From ''Film/RobinHoodMenInTights''
-->'''Sheriff of Rottingham:''' I've been angry at you before, Loxley...but now I'm really PISSED OFF!
-->'''Ahchoo:''' Pissed off? If I was that close to a horse's wiener, I'd worry about getting pissed ''on!''
* Used effectively for pathos in ''Film/{{Zulu}}'', in the scene in which [[SergeantRock Colour Sergeant Bourne]] takes the register of the survivors.
-->'''Bourne:''' "Beckett?"\\
'''1st Soldier:''' "He's wounded, sir."\\
'''2nd Soldier:''' "He's dying, sir.\\
'''3rd Soldier:''' "It's sad."\\
'''Bourne:''' *With surprising gentleness* "Keep your voices down."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Malicia uses this trope frequently in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book ''Discworld/TheAmazingMauriceAndHisEducatedRodents''. Justified because [[GenreSavvy she believes that her life is a story]] -- and she's [[WrongGenreSavvy not a very good storyteller]].
** Vetinari does it once in ''Discworld/MakingMoney'' when Moist [[spoiler:for a moment considers if Vetinari could have had Topsy Lavish assassinated so Moist could get her position.]] Vetinari is usually a stoic NervesOfSteel character who uses double-speak and insinuations a lot, and as such an outright statement of how angry he is underlines the situation to Moist.
* [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Stephenie Meyer]] has about the same knack for giving characters depth as [[Franchise/StarWars George Lucas]].
* Laurell K. Hamilton doesn't seem to understand if you use first-person narration, the reader knows the character's thoughts and feelings without them having to announce it. Whereas Literature/AnitaBlake will think something, then [[FacePalm voice her thoughts to everyone in the room]].
** This style carries over to the comics, which can include Anita's description of someone who is clearly visible in the comic, even in that very panel.
* Not anger, but ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' has a funny one when our taciturn ProudWarriorRace alien, Ax, first smells a skunk.
-->''"I believe the smell is causing me to become deranged," Ax said calmly. "I may have to run away in panic."''
* There is a ''Literature/WinnieThePooh'' in the "Lessons from the Hundred-Acre Wood" series titled ''[[http://pooh.wikia.com/wiki/Use_Your_Words Use Your Words]]''. In this book, Kanga encourages Roo to use his words to express how he feelings instead of keeping his feelings bottled up inside. Sample dialogue: "If you have something to tell me or want to share how you're feeling, please use your words, Roo." "I'm mad because I had to come back inside!" "All right. But you still need to wear your scarf."
* [[PlanetOfHats A species trait of the Martians]] in S.M. Stirling's ''In The Courts of the Crimson Kings''. A woman asks if her ragtag hired crew fears her, and they reply, "We fear you exceedingly, even unto the relaxation of sphincters." Martians who are pissed off mutter things like, "Extreme annoyance!" It's hilarious and surprisingly effective.
* Justified with ''Literature/ProtectorOfTheSmall'''s Keladry of Mindelan, as she hide her emotions so thoroughly that even saying she's angry shocks her friends.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Ross Geller in ''Series/{{Friends}}'' when on sedatives for anger-management issues. "Oh, this is not good for my rage."
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''
** One episode has a subplot revolving around the fact that J.D.'s current girlfriend was essentially flawless -- [[MinorFlawMajorBreakup except that, when she was amused by something, she'd say, "That's SO funny!", instead of laughing, which drove him so far up the wall]] [[UpToEleven he crossed the ceiling, went down the other wall, and came out in China]].
-->'''J.D.:''' You know what's funny, Turk? She's not saying "That's so sad," she's ACTUALLY crying.\\
'''Turk:''' You're an IDIOT.\\
'''J.D.:''' "Yes I am."
** Also when Jordan got botox and tried to smile Dr. Cox had to guess her emotion. Jordan did this after her neighbor's son called her "ma'am."
* [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny The exact same thing was done in]] ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''. George is getting upset!
** also on Seinfeld, the bizarro Jerry states "Me so happy. Me want to cry"
* Done humorously in ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld''. Harley Kiner, TheBully, was supposed to be tough and emotionless, so whenever some sort of event would happen, he would state his reactions to them by saying, [[DelusionsOfEloquence "I am hysterical" or "I am distraught."]]
* A somewhat pathetic example in ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles.'' When the Rizzoli siblings find out their mom is in trouble, they respond thusly:
-->Jane: It just makes me so sad.
-->Frank: Me too, Janie.
* ''Top Ground Gear Force'', the gardening special for Sports Relief hosted by the presenters of ''SerieS/TopGear''; "I'm unspeakably angry at you," James May tells Clarkson, sounding a bit put out. Being a British show, this may have been combined with a bit of {{Understatement}} and StiffUpperLip. Ridiculously, that is actually how Brits express anger. At least on TV.
* PlayedForLaughs as the closing gag in an episode of ''Series/WillAndGrace''. Will obtained botox treatments in his face in an attempt to appear younger. Of course, botox works as a paralyzing agent ([[RuleOfFunny basically]]), so when Grace arrived to boast of some accomplishment, [[DeadpanSnarker Will's]] [[DullSurprise expressionless delivery]] of "I'm so happy for you" was taken for SarcasmMode. Grace promptly stormed out, which caused Will to sit back down with the same look.
* Likewise in ''Series/SexAndTheCity'': Candice Bergen's character announces "I am so angry right now" with a blank facial expression. Not only has it been established that she's had botox, but this line is actually a callback to early in the episode when Samantha goes for a botox treatment and the nurse warns her that, because of her reduced facial expressiveness, she'll have to explicitly announce her emotions.
-->'''Nurse:''' Some patients have said they found it difficult to register emotion on their faces after the procedure. So you may have to say things like, "I am so angry right now."
* Kai, the BigBad of ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'', often uses a ThatMakesMeFeelAngry followed by [[CatchPhrase "My face shows it, doesn't it?"]] Of course, since he doesn't seem to have a normal range of emotions ([[SlasherSmile smiling evilly most of the time]])...
* {{Lampshaded}} in an episode of ''Music/FlightOfTheConchords'' when the agent says "What's that emotion that makes you go 'RRRRRRRR'?"
* Anya of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' does this frequently, especially when she's first turned into a human. For example, when she finds out that she's winning the board game ''Life'' she says, "Oh, I'm so pleased!"
* Illyria of ''Series/{{Angel}}'' often demonstrates this. Being an [[EldritchAbomination ancient demon]] bound into the body of a human, she lacks the understanding of human expressions and even the underlying emotions, making her unable to emote properly.
** Then completely subverts it when Fred's parents visit, and she fakes the correct emotional responses whenever they can see or hear her. Wesley calls her on this, and she explains that his grief is "like ashes in my mouth" and she doesn't want to deal with the grief of Fred's parents as well. She knows what the responses should be, and can fake them perfectly well, ''but just doesn't care'' when it won't make things easier ''for her''. After Wesley dies, she simply states a desire to perform more violence. And then she does.
* [[JerkassWoobie Vorenus]] on ''Series/{{Rome}}''. "It saddens me that you are unhappy, because I have a deep affection for you." He says this to his wife while wearing his [[{{Mangst}} Glower of Emotional Inadequacy]], which is subtly distinct from his [[NotSoAboveItAll Glower of Doing What He's Got to Do]], [[BlackAndGreyMorality Glower of Moral Disgust]], [[ActionFilmQuietDramaScene Contemplative Glower]], [[KubrickStare Glower of Pure Rage]], and [[BeenThereShapedHistory Glower of Realizing Something Is Occurring Which Will Turn the Tide of History]].
* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', in damn near every episode. It makes sense though, since two of the main characters are psychiatrists, leading them to constantly discuss their feelings with each other, as well as encouraging everyone else to do the same. Frasier himself, being particularly self-absorbed, brings this trope to staggering heights.
-->"[[LargeHam I AM WOUNDED!]]"
* ''Series/FawltyTowers'': One of the symptoms of Basil Fawlty's ComedicSociopathy was to announce "I'm so happy!" while grinning like a skull [[ImplausibleDeniability in the mistaken belief that he was fooling anyone]].
* Another example of Cleese doing this can be found in the "Dirty Fork" sketch in 'Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''.
--> '''[[LargeHam John Cleese]]:''' ''[[YouBastard You bastards]]!'' You vicious, heartless bastards! Look what you've done to him! He's worked his fingers to the bone to make this place what it is, and you come in with your petty, feeble quibbling and you grind him into the dirt! This fine, honorable man whose boots you are but worthy to kiss! ''[{{Beat}}]'' Oh, it makes me mad.
** One Python sketch has this in the form of precision military drilling.
---> "My goodness me! I am in a bad temper today, two three! Damn damn, two three! I am vexed and ratty, two three! And hopping mad!"
* [[PlayedForLaughs Played]] ForTheEvulz by [[PsychopathicManchild the Master]] on ''Series/DoctorWho''.
-->'''The Master:''' You see, I'm not making myself very clear. "Funny" is like this:\\
: D\\
"Not funny" is like this:\\
>: (\\
And right now, I'm not like\\
: D\\
I'm like\\
>: (
--> '''Kazran Sardick''' also kicks The Doctor out of his sitting room, proclaiming that he has been bored by their interaction.
* This trope made for one of the world's most favorite {{Narm}} moments in a VerySpecialEpisode of ''Series/SavedByTheBell'', when Jessie, having become addicted to caffeine pills, starts singing "I'm So Excited" (itself an example of this trope, see below), and it ends up "I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I'm so... so scared!"
* Used rather pointedly by Mal in ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' when Zoe and Wash's marital disputes started getting on his nerves.
-->'''Mal:''' Okay, uh, I'm lost. I'm angry. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny And I'm armed.]]
* ''Series/RedDwarf'': "Mr. Flibble's very cross."
* Done by Ninjor in the ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. "Evil makes me so angry. It just burns me up!" Cue a shapeshifting into a {{Badass}} form
* Done several times on ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' to great comedic effect.
-->'''Colin Mochrie:''' I'm feisty!
* ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'': One episode had Malcolm's grandmother drugging a wealthy man to get him [[GoldDigger to marry her]]. When her family found out, she drugged them so they'd not interfere. While under the effect of the drugs, Malcolm revealed he had pierced his tongue. His mother said she'd punish him as soon as the drugs wear off (until then, she didn't seem upset). [[spoiler:Don't worry about the rich man. The drugs on him wore off just when he was about to partake on the vows]].
* Castiel in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', eating hamburgers: "These things make me ''very'' happy."
** In "The Monster At The End Of The Book", Sam and Dean find out about a book series that someone describes all of their monster hunting cases, and find one about things that have yet to happen. The two decide to prove the book wrong by doing the opposite of whatever it says will happen. One of the future events is them having a fight. When Sam suggests they use their new knowledge to get the drop on Lilith, Dean almost snaps at him, but instead says, through gritted teeth, "It frustrates me when you say such reckless things". Sam responds, with equal irritance, "It frustrates me when you'd rather hide than fight".
* One episode of ''TwoAndAHalfMen'' concluded with Alan dressed in a GayNineties "barbershop quartet" outfit and handlebar moustache, staying in character (with an Italian accent!) as he reacted to various real-world (within the episode) incidents: [[JustAStupidAccent "I'm-a so happy!"..."I'm-a so sad!"]]
* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'' season 2, [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Ros]] is in uncontrollable tears after watching [[spoiler:a baby get murdered in front of her]], and it's putting off her customers. Littlefinger, her pimp, tells her a story about how the last whore he had who put customers off with her moping got sold to someone who wanted to "transform" her. After finishing this lovely anecdote, he asks her if she will be bright and happy tomorrow. When she manages a smile and a nod, he says "That makes me happy". This is a rare case of this trope being simultaneously PlayedForDrama at the same time as being [[PlayingWithATrope played with]], since Littlefinger is quite obviously being facetious about it.
* In one episode of ''Series/TheThickOfIt'', Ollie has, once again, done exactly what [[SirSwearsALot Malcolm]] [[MagnificentBastard Tucker]] has ordered him to. Malcolm rewards him by saying [[HoYay "You've made me very, very happy"]], while simultaneously giving him an epic DeathGlare. The strange thing is, Malcolm actually ''is'' sincerely happy with him, but continues to mess with Ollie anyway, presumably ForTheLulz.
* Gary Bell from ''Series/{{Alphas}}'', constantly. Justified in that he's autistic ("a 32 on the [=CARs=] Scale").
-->'''Gary:''' Dr. Rosen! I'm slamming my door!
* Invoked regularly in ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'', and even discussed in songs such as "What Do You Do With the Mad that You Feel?" Justified, as Mr. Rogers was intentionally teaching his young viewers that it was OK to deal with their emotions.
* A defining trait of the Dolls of {{Dollhouse}}.
* Grizz on ''Series/ThirtyRock'' doesn't display any emotional range but just states how he's feeling.
* An episode of ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun'' has Dick discover computers. He soon gets in over his head, becoming a shut-in, and using webcams to communicate, teach classes, etc. In the process he also seems to forget how to emote, and even when Mary tries to pull him away from his desk and accidently spills coke in his computer set up, [[NoWaterproofingInTheFuture shorting it out]], he simply states (with a creepy smile) how he feels.
-->'''Dick:''' Oh, Mary. You've made me so angry.\\
'''Mary:''' Oh, go to hell! (''storms out'')
* On ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'', an amusing script error lets us know that {{Hercules}} is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9gC1GiSDDA DISAPPOINTED.]]!
* One episode of ''LawAndOrder'' features Emil Skoda interviewing a little girl who cruelly murdered a little boy. After she cheerfully recounts how she once killed a cat, he deliberately blows up at her, shouting, "That makes me angry!" In this case, he's indicating his feelings in order to gauge whether she's capable of shame or remorse.
* Cosima Niehaus of Orphan Black expresses this trope in the episode Variations under Domestication, when she walks up to Delphine Cormier, saying that she is bored.
* April Ludgate of Parks and Recreation uses this trope often to display her emotions, usually boredom and annoyance.
* Played for laughs with Captain Holt in ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'', who is [[TheStoic so stoic and unreadable]] he often needs to telegraph how he feels.
-->'''Holt:''' ''(after a motorized wheelchair rolls over his foot)'' He ran over my foot. I am in...incredible pain.

[[folder:Music]]
* Ivor Cutler, one of the quirkiest men to have ever lived, sang a song that tells you he is happy in [[http://elbo.ws/video/H5fA184R6EA/ the funniest way possible.]]
* Lots and lots of songs. Those with uh...[[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment negative themes,]] especially.
* "I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it!" [[CaptainObvious Now what do you suppose the artist is trying to convey with these lyrics?]]
* Music/JohnLennon pulls this in Music/TheBeatles' "She Said She Said".
-->"Who put all those things in your head\\
Things that make me feel that I'm mad."
** "I'll Cry Instead" does this as well:
-->"I've got every reason on Earth to be mad\\
'Cause I just lost the only girl I had\\
If I could get my way\\
I'd pick myself back up today\\
But I can't so I'll cry instead."
* Creator/NathanRabin [[http://www.avclub.com/articles/spooktastic-case-file-174-michael-jacksons-ghosts,46847/ points out]] the use of this trope in Music/MichaelJackson's ''[[Film/MichaelJacksonsGhosts Ghosts]]'':
--> The dialogue in "Ghosts" is elemental to a perverse degree: No one ever obfuscates when they can communicate what they're feeling in the bluntest, most primitive manner possible. So we learn that The Mayor thinks Maestro is weird and strange and doesn't like him when The Mayor says, "You're weird. You're strange. [And] I don't like you.�
* [[JamesBrown James Brown's]] "I Got You (I Feel Good)". As well as [[StandardSnippet every television show, movie, or trailer]] that has used it in the soundtrack to illustrate that the character being shown on the screen is feeling, you guessed it, good.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* On an episode of ''[[Wrestling/{{WWESmackDown}} WWE SmackDown!]] leading into ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} 25'', Wrestling/TheUndertaker comments on the fact that the other wrestlers have gone from quaking in fear of him to seeking him out to prove themselves: "This... displeases me."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* Creator/WilliamShakespeare in ''Theatre/HenryV'' has King Henry say "I was not angry since I came to France/Until this instant" when he sees a bunch of [[MoralEventHorizon slaughtered boys.]] Fully [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in Shakespeare's time -- modern acting (where we actually, y'know, act) didn't exist until the 19th century. Before that, "acting" consisted of standing up on stage in a costume to denote various characters and reading lines off the script -- often in a monotone. Think of all the times in high school English where the class had to read from the play and you'll soon realise why Shakespeare had his characters saying their emotions out loud.
* Happens in too many [[{{Opera}} operas]] to count. Of course, rather than saying "I'm happy," characters will be singing "Sono felice," but it's the same idea.
* Act II of ''IntoTheWoods'' opens with the main characters singing about how perfectly happy they are--mostly to set up the ''huge'' subversion of HappilyEverAfter that immediately follows. They are arguably not perfectly happy even in that song; it's strongly implied that they are trying to convince themselves they are by repeating it over and over again.
* In TheMusical ''High Spirits'' (an adaptation of ''Blithe Spirit''), Charles pulls out a record his [[CuteGhostGirl recently-returned-as-a-ghost]] wife played on their wedding night and finds she doesn't remember it. She claims "it's all coming back" to her, but Charles tells her, "It isn't, and I'm upset."
* In ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'', this is the nurse's reaction to being teased by Mercutio: "Now, afore me, I am so vexed that every part about me quivers, scurvy knave."
* Also Hermia in Act Three, Scene Two of "A Midsummer Night's Dream": "I am amazed and know not what to say."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* From ''VideoGame/CaveStory'', Misery's "Heavens, that felt good!" [[spoiler:after dumping Balrog into the Labyrinth.]]
* The third verse of the bizarre boss fight/opera hybrid in ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' begins with the line "now I'm really getting rather mad" (subsequent lines unprintable).
* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2'' has the HK-50s' prefixes, such as "Mocking Query:" or "Condescending Statement:". HK-47 does this as well, but to a lesser extent, as he doesn't use adjectives. Usually because HK-47 is the StraightMan to the HK-50's PluckyComicRelief. HK-47 can go on and on about philosophy with only a "Statement:" or two thrown in, but the HK-50s get more and more ridiculous as the game goes on, from "Condescending Explanation" up to "Unnecessary Statement" and "Ineffectual Command" (the last two from cut content, sadly). It gets to the point where the HK-50s actually start undermining themelves, such as by preceding an explanation of events with "[[BlatantLies Fabrication:]]".
* "I have fury!", Fawful's famous {{Engrish}} catchphrase in ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga]]''.
* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in ''Franchise/MassEffect'', in which the elcor race always states the tone of their statement before speaking. For example, "Delighted surprise. I greet you". This is because among their own race, most of the communication is done via pheromones and body language too subtle for other races to detect. Their voices are always in a sort of dull monotone, so when they joined the larger galactic community, they grew accustomed to addressing other races this way as a courtesy. When you hear elcor talking in background conversations, they don't preface their words. Also, because it's Bioware, at least partly a ShoutOut to HK-47 above. In-universe, there was an all-elcor run of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''. The one time an elcor speaks to you without using a prefix, he's clearly so depressed that a prefix would be redundant.
-->"Wait, did you hack your translator so you could control your kinetic language processing?"\\
[[BlatantLies "With a sincerity such that skepticism would be deeply insulting: no."]]\\
"With barely contained terror: You drive a hard bargain, human."\\
"Insincere endorsement: You have not experienced Shakespeare until you have heard him in the voice of elcor."
** This was also noted as one of many, ''many'' problems with ''Literature/MassEffectDeception''.
* When you defeat Anubis in your second encounter with him in ''VideoGame/MetalCombat: Falcon's Revenge'', he shouts "You have succeeded in making me ''angry!''" as his body is exploding. A few seconds later, [[OneWingedAngel he gets a brand new one]], and you have to fight him all over again.
* Losing in the Meltokio Coliseum with Raine in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' will have her reply "This does not make me happy." Likewise, when Colette goes into overlimit, her response will be "I'm mad now."
* ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III''
** In a cinematic, Malfurion Stormrage says "That angers me greatly" when he sees [[TheUndead Scourge]] forces tearing down the forest around his home. He can be forgiven, though, seeing that he just woke up from a 10,000-year nap.
** Given the game itself, the only way to express anger is vocally, and Furion is supposed to be TheStoic, so it wouldn't fit easily without looking odd. He really does get angry in the expansion, and this time it's more natural. though he's still not exempt from this. An example is "The pain is... excruciating!" said in an unnaturally bored tone of voice.
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''
** Raging Raven in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots''. See, they already had Screaming Mantis, so instead of just shrieking incoherently, Raven has to fly around telling everyone how angry she is. "Rage! ''RAAAAGE!''"
** There's also The Cobras from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater''. The Pain says "Pain" anytime you shoot him, The Fear announces his fear after you beat him, The End says "The end" anytime he sneaks up on you (which doesn't count unless OhCrap counts as an emotion), The Sorrow tells us how sad he is. The only two exempt from this is The Fury and The Joy aka The Boss.
** The infamous [[BlindIdiotTranslation Engrish]] translation of the original ''Franchise/MetalGear'' game features guards which, to let you know they were about to [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy fall asleep at their posts]], would shout "I'M GETTING SLEEPY!!", followed by "I FEEL ASLEEP!!" to announce that they were, in fact, asleep and safe to sneak past.
** Whether you find it a TearJerker or [[{{Narm}} Narmtastic]], Psycho Mantis' final words are to declare how [[spoiler: helping someone for the first time]] [[GoodFeelsGood feels nice.]]
* Agent Superball from Telltale's ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' series of games. In this case, played for laughs because he's [[TheStoic a Secret Service agent]]. He actually ''does'' break his emotionless demeanor once, when the duo are trying to [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong fix Bosco]] using time travel; even forty-ish years ago, Stinky's is well known for its food, and Superball is frankly shocked that the president would go someplace as lowbrow as ''that''.
-->"I'm sorry. I'm gushing."\\
"I'm crying from the inside."
* In ''VideoGame/StarControl 2'', the Utwig's culture is built around this concept. They have a tendency to state their emotions ([[TheEeyore "You find us in a state of moderate depression instead of our normal cycle of self-destructive tendencies."]]) And instead of expressing their emotions, they wear [[CoolMask masks]] to represent them, such as the Expression of Ultimate Gratitude, the Mask of Rampant Jubilation and Jumping With Ecstatic Glee, and, of course, the Mask of Ultimate Embarrassment and Shame. They believe that physical expression of emotions holds them back from achieving a higher level of civilization, and therefore attempt to repress it.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''
** After all of the crap Roxas had to endure, he finally confronts [=DiZ=]. By this time, Roxas is pissed-off and exhausted, but what line does he deliver? "I hate you ''so'' much!"
*** Somewhat justified, in that Roxas had already tried to attack him several times, only to find out that he was talking to a hologram, and had realized that by this point, there was nothing he could do to escape or alter his fate, so pretty much all he had left was white-hot, useless anger that he knew couldn't alter anything. Honestly, from a 14-15 year old who had his best friend betray him and seemingly die by his hand, a girl who met and spoke with him just to be kind get taken away by his tormentors, and given the circumstances above, that's probably the most natural thing he could've said, simply because there's nothing else to say.
** A worse example is later on when Sora meets [[spoiler:Riku, who has the form of Xehanort's Heartless]]. "[[{{Narm}} Thinking about all the things you did makes me really mad]]."
** Makes it FridgeBrilliance when you remember [=DiZ=] telling Roxas to "share some of that hatred with Sora" [[spoiler: before Roxas and Sora "become whole."]]
* Interesting version shows up in ''VideoGame/ArTonelico''. Not so much as the game itself as the game's {{Fictionary}}; the language of Hymmnos places heavy emphasis on emotions or emotional state. Considering the discrepancies between what Reyvateils say outside and in their Cosmosphere, and what you have to do for them to be able to craft new songs, this is less this trope and more of them needing to be able to express their feelings better.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''. For a particularly noticeable example, try wearing different masks as Child Link and talking to Saria.
** Also, in ''TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', this forms one of Ghirahim's more memorable lines (with excitable bouts of spontaneous teleportation):
-->'''Ghirahim:''' [Zelda] was nearly ours when that loathsome servant of the goddess snatched her away. Do you have any idea how that made me feel inside? Furious! Outraged! ''(teleports)'' Sick with anger!
* Fujin from ''Videogame/FinalFantasyVIII'', though it's all part of her shouty monosyllabic schtick.
** Tidus from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' "You'll cry. You're gonna cry. You always cry. See? You're cryin'." "I hate you, Dad." "Save it for later." "Right...we've got a job to do, don't we?"
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** One of the responses to a successful taunt in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' is "That makes me... angry".
** A line characters may speak in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'': "Your presence annoys me."
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}''
** In ''Subterranean Animism'', Parsee introduces herself to Reimu (and [[MissionControl Yukari]]) by [[DissonantSerenity cheerfully chatting]] about [[GreenEyedMonster how dreadfully jealous she is of everything and everybody]]. This, like everything else in ''Touhou'' fandom, gets [[{{Flanderization}} exaggerated]] by the fandom, often to the point where she rarely speaks about anything else.
** Komeiji Satori from the same game turns this around by telling other people what they're thinking or feeling, whether they mind it said or not. This bothers Marisa more than it does Reimu, the latter even goading Satori to read the bullet patterns she's going to use against her.
* Taizo during the opening cutscene of ''VideoGame/DigDug: Digging Strike''.
-->'''NPC:''' I need to talk to Susumu.\\
'''Taizo:''' Listen here, Im Taizo Hori, I handled the Dig Du...\\
'''NPC:''' There's no time! I must talk to Susumu!\\
'''Taizo:''' Are you trying to make a fool of me? You've never heard of Taizo Hori?\\
'''NPC:''' No I haven't, please! you must get me to Susumu!\\
'''Taizo:''' Hmph! ''Now I'm angry!''
* ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' "It makes me so mad!"
* Occasionally, cops in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'' will say "You're really making me mad!"
* "...And it makes me violently angry..." as spoken by John Marston from ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'', to Irish when discussing how whiskey affects the brain.
** [[TropesAreNotBad It works]] as intimidation, though, because Irish was attempting to weasel his way out of completing a job for Marston ''again'', saying that whiskey "gives [him] the memory of a newborn babe". To which Marston replies with the above, followed by downing a shot.
* Used [[FunnyMoments hilariously]] in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' with the G-Men in the Milkman Conspiracy. They speak in the same utter deadpan no matter what happens or what emotion they are failing to convey... "I am a grieving widow. Boo. Hoo. Hoo." "Oh no. They got Bill. He was such an excellent assassin." "I am on fire. I am uncomfortable."
* VideoGame/MetroidOtherM has several moments with Samus' infamous dull and monotone narration.
->''The word he so obviously chose, "outsider," pierced my heart.''
* In ''VideoGame/{{Mother 1}}'', if Ninten does not fall for The Hippie's Bullhorn attack, the battle's running commentary will actually say, "This made Ninten angry."

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* In ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', Shizune gets one up over Hisao by abandoning him in town, leaving him with a note informing him that, if he manages to find his way back to school, she'll have a lot of work for him to do as part of the Student Council.
-->'''Hisao:''' I crush the note in my fist dramatically, but no one is there to see it, and that makes me sad.
* ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'''s characters don't have visually represented emotions, because they each have one basic portrait and each portrait is a stock photo of a bird. They seem to have expressions in-universe which the protagonist helpfully notes in the narration, but one character, Fujishiro Nageki, is so opaque and withdrawn-seeming that he does actually have to tell her what he's feeling, when what he's feeling isn't basically snark or disdain. Sakazaki Yuuya, too, says a few times that the protagonist has made him very happy - he's [[StepfordSmiler just about always smiling, especially when he's unhappy]].

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* At one point in ''WebAnimation/DusksDawn'', the villain outright states that he is evil, [[ObviouslyEvil in case that wasn't clear enough already]].
* Caboose does this a few times in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''.
-->'''Caboose:''' Now I am thinking about Kittens... Kittens covered in ''spikes''... That makes me ''angry...''\\
''[primal scream as he jumps into a fight and slaughters everyone]''
* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony:''
** The Season Two trailer video has Twilight Sparkle, in the middle of a freakout, shouting "I'm just so full of all the emotions!"
** "The Cheesen One" combines it with DullSurprise as a background character says "Someone help. My baby's about to die. That really cheeses me off."
* In "[[WebAnimation/YouTubePoop What Happens]] [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants During the Night Shift]]", {{Pumkin}} says this:
-->'''Pumkin''': "I'm very ANGRY."

* ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' has an instance similar to the ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' example in [[http://exterminatusnow.comicgenesis.com/d/20080112.html this strip.]]
* This ''Webcomic/{{Achewood}}'' comic: http://www.achewood.com/index.php?date=06212002
* The [[TheWoobie excruciatingly insecure]] Tavros Nitram from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' eventually tries to get some self-confidence. Unfortunately, he thinks this means constantly stating how confident he is and that what he is saying and doing is exactly what a confident person would say and do.
* ''Webcomic/SandraAndWoo'' has an eagle who is [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/04/14/0262-predator-and-prey/ "sad and a little bit angry."]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Sung merrily by Randy of {{Manwhores}}: "Broken heart. Sad feelings. Suicidal tendencies, are on my mind. I'm gonna kill myself. Doo, doo, dee, doo, I'm gonna kill myself." during his emotional downward spiral, before engaging in an incredibly transparent IHaveThisFriend dialogue with a sympathetic bartender.
* Captain Hammer, in ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'': "Oh, I'm in pain! I think this is what pain feels like!"
* The "angry gorilla" in ''Auto-Tune the News'' on Website/YouTube, while not acting very angry, continuously expresses verbally how angry he is.
* WebVideo/TheIrateGamer does this constantly.
* Usually capable of literally explosive... well, anything, if WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic isn't feeling angry or upset but tries to come off as feeling the emotion then he'll prove himself to be a [[BadBadActing horrible actor]].
* Towards the end of ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', (the third anniversary special for the Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses website) there's a huge battle with many participants, one of whom is a witch [[ShockAndAwe launching lightning bolts all over the place]]. [[spoiler:[[WebVideo/ThatDudeInTheSuede Suede]]]] calmly walks over to her and quietly says "I find that very vexing" before knocking her out with [[OneHitKO a single punch]].
* Almost every line of ''WebVideo/ATrailerForEveryAcademyAwardWinningMovieEver'' is deliberately like this, as part of the [[BetterThanABareBulb lampshade-heavy]] writing style.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_L1bBWnlhI Both of my feet hurt and it makes me mad.]]
* In ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged'', after finding out that "[[JiveTurkey those inconsidadate bitches]]" at the hospital are making her pay for saving [[RememberTheNewGuy Ken's]] life, Lita punches the wall and shouts, "I'm angry!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Used constantly in ''Franchise/CareBears: Adventures in Care-a-lot''. Granted, the show is partially to help children learn to deal with their emotions, but that doesn't make it any less annoying.
* ''WesternAnimation/NiHaoKaiLan'' uses it in the exact same way, for the exact same reason.
* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}''. Truffles once has to resort to telling everyone that she's angry because she had her voice changed by a radio dial thing and her new voice ''never'' sounds anything but calm.
* Cartoon character [[WesternAnimation/TexAveryMGMCartoons Droopy]] does this all the time. ("You know what? I'm happy.") [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that it's the only way to tell when he ''is'' happy. And because... well, because [[RuleOfFunny it's funny]]. Parodied in a few cartoons, where Droopy would deliver this line after showing a traditional exaggerated response, like jumping around shouting "Yahoo!" after receiving a massive reward for catching an escaped convict. And if you ever hear him say "[[PreAssKickingOneLiner You know what? That makes me mad,]]" head for the hills, because his BerserkButton has been hit, and you'd better hope he's feeling charitable enough to actually let you run away. Usually this line is followed after his enemy does something stupid when Droopy's pouting. Only the fox was GenreSavvy enough to know that it's a cue that Droopy's about to be pushed too far (and plus, the offer of delicious steak was just too good to pass up). The bull and the dragon, however, didn't see what was coming until their asses were kicked into next week.
** And in "Homesteader Droopy", it's his infant son that does this.
* The Daffy cartoon "Birth of a Notion" has an animated Peter Lorre quietly threatening his dog Leopold, "Because I will do terrible, horrible, things if I get angry," in a very soft voice, as all the while he keeps breaking a baseball bat into kindling over his knees.
** Parodied in "The Scarlet Pumpernickel." In Daffy's story, Porky and Melissa's emotions are described as "simply furious" and "simply delighted." With the two respective characters flatly declaring that they feel them. Subverted immediately afterwards when Porky shows genuine frustration over Melissa's attraction to The Scarlet Pumpernickel.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''
** The [[UnCanceled ex-finale]] has Fry compose an opera in which the characters do exactly this. This prompted the above reaction from the Robot Devil.
** It was used straight in an earlier Valentine's Day episode where alien conqueror Lrrr sampled a bag of candy hearts, and received one with the word "wuv" written on it: "This concept of 'wuv' confuses and infuriates us!"
** ''Futurama'' seems to like this trope (usually making fun of it). In "Bendless Love", Bender bends Professor Farnsworth's back multiple ways, with position he's in for most of the episode leaving him unusually happy, presumably due to blood flow pooling in the back of his brain. At the end when he's asked to bend him back to normal, he actually ends up bending him even more, resulting in Professor Farnsworth stating, "I'm sad now."
** "Morbo is pleased, but sticky."
** "Would a big, hallucinatin' baby do THIS?" -cries and whimpers- "I'm scared!"
** Calculon at the end of "Bend Her": "your death fills me with sorrow, ANGER, fear, every emotion an actor can display." (he [[LargeHam over-acts each emotion]] as he says it).
*** Calculon also at one point completely deadpans the line "I'm filled with a large number of powerful emotions", though this was for a scene on ''All My Circuits''.
** "As a robot, I have no emotions, and sometimes that makes me feel ''very sad'' [cries]."
** Done throughout the entire episode of "I Second That Emotion".
** "I am literally angry with rage!"
** "I'm as angry as I've ever been!"
** Farnsworth does this twice in "The Sting." First, after Leela blames herself for Fry's death, he pats her on the back, tells her it's not her fault, then turns to the others and announces "I'm lying to make her feel better!" Then when Leela starts to think Fry's alive and insists he's "still out there," Farnsworth tries to wisecrack, "Of course he is... As a frozen corpse in outer space! Ohohoho! Oho, oh... [[MadeMyselfSad now I made myself sad."]]
** "Fry stood me up and died? I'm so angry! I mean, I'm so sad. But I'm still angry! But also sad. Can I be both?...Then that's what I am!"
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' did this once. Francine walks in and is alerted to a zany scheme that Stan has been up to, but gives no reaction whatsoever. Klaus is amazed that she is taking the news remarkably well to which she responds:
-->'''Francine:''' Oh, I'm filled with rage. It's just that the Botox has left my face paralyzed. Am I scowling now? I want to be scowling.
* [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Marvin the Martian]] [[CatchPhrase often says "You have made me very angry! *huff, puff* Very angry indeed!"]] Understandable, as it's often things that would prevent you from seeing the expression on his already hard to see face like... being disintegrated. Also, his voice doesn't emote... even after having been disintegrated. Once he said, "I'm not angry. Just [[LiteralMetaphor very, very, hurt]]." This was immediately after a rocket ship from Earth had literally crashed into the telescope he was looking through, and he pulled himself out of the debris.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'' TV series saw fit to write a song called: "I feel so happy." Unfortunately, someone at the studio thought it would be a good idea to make it a ''recurring'' song.
* ''WesternAnimation/MissionHill'' has an internal example, when the gay neighbors Wally and Gus reveal they fell in love during the filming of a movie. Wally, the director, cast Gus as an alien robot. But since Gus only has one facial expression, he had to make it obvious when he was angry by... installing two lights on his costume that went from [[MoralityDial "Calm"]] to "Angry!" Needless to say, the movie would have made Creator/EdWood proud, even curing a depressed man's sadness!
* In the ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' TV special ''He's a Bully, Charlie Brown'', Peppermint Patty says "My jealousy has overcome my reason!". Made especially {{Narm}}tastic by the delivery of the child actor. Which is what makes it even funnier, because you know that the child has ''no'' idea what they're actually talking about, they're just repeating the lines they were told to say.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''
** Parodied in the episode "Mobile Homer". The made-for-TV movie that Marge watches is practically nothing but That Makes Me Feel Angry moments. And since it was a parody of [[LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek Lifetime movies of the week]], that just makes it funnier.
** The episode "Skinner's Sense of Snow" features a low-budget Christmas movie entitled ''The Christmas that Almost Wasn't But then Was'' in which a smiling elf walks onscreen only to declare "I'm happy" before walking off-screen again.
** In "Hurricane Neddy", as Ned Flanders is [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech chewing out his neighbors]], he turns to Bart:
-->'''Bart:''' Hey, back off, man!\\
'''Ned:''' [[SarcasmMode Okay,]] [[TotallyRadical duuuuuuuude! I wouldn't want you to have a cow, maaaaaaaaaan.]] Here's a catchphrase you better learn for your adult years: "Hey, buddy, '''''GOT A QUARTER?'''''"!\\
''(everyone gasps)''\\
'''Bart:''' I am shocked and appalled.
** Employed masterfully by mobster Fat Tony, who is so obsessed with coming off as WickedCultured that he articulates his every thought in absurdly precise language -- and boy, is it ever chilling. ("I am not so much disappointed, as I am ''blinded by rage''.")
** Deep Space Homer gave us this gem: "You know Homer when I first heard about this I went through a wide range of emotions. First I was nervous. Then anxious. Then apprehensive. Then kinda sleepy. Then worried. And then concerned.
** Homer and Marge after seeing a self help seminar.
--->'''Homer:''' Marge, I'm feeling a lot of shame right now.
--->'''Marge:''' I'm hearing that you feel a lot of shame.
--->'''Homer:''' And I feel that you hear my shame.
--->'''Marge:''' I'm feeling annoyance and frustration, but also tolerance
--->'''Homer:''' I feel validated by that.

* Pretty much the entire point of ''[[http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=8kU_CQGWBsU The Transporters]]'', a series of animations designed to help autistic children read facial expressions and understand the causes of emotions.
* Seems clearly inspired by ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'', which is also popular with autistic children for similar reasons. The engines' emotions are always easy to read. The shows plays it straight ''twice'' in the course of ''a minute'' in "Misty Island Rescue". Thomas tells the engines how losing [[MacGuffin an important bit of cargo]] "makes me feel badly," and Sir Topham Hatt says, when he enters, "that makes me cross."
* When ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' foe Magneto gets angry, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kkc_Myyye20 things]] [[MemeticMutation begin to happen!]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ProjectGeeKeR'' had a [[TheStoic Stoic]] BigBad that spoke in an even monotone most of the time, with no difference between normal speaking, "I'm filled with utter joy", and "I am furious, gentlemen. Positively livid."
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'': Egon, at Winston's birthday party, deadpans to him "I just want to let you know... I'm having a wonderful time."
* Don Carnage of TaleSpin has "Ooooh, [you/they/it] make(s) me so angry!" as one of his [[CatchPhrase catch phrases]].
* Word for word by Superboy in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. As a [[YoungerThanHeLooks six-month-old]] [[CloningBlues clone]] he's not very good at expressing his emotions.
* Mad Stan in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' at one point offers "Now I'm REALLY mad!" during a fight with Batman. In case you somehow couldn't tell by the 5+ minute fight scene he'd already been through and his constant rantings against the evils of information.
* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' for the episode "Sven Hek", where Ren announces "I'm so angry" and describes various horrible things he's going to do to Stimpy and Sven, all in a semi-insane happy tone of voice.
* A staple of the ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'' spin-off ''[[WesternAnimation/DanielTigersNeighborhood Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood]]''. They sing about it, too.
* Mr. Moloch in ProjectGeeker, pretty much every time his mooks fail him.

* TruthInTelevision, at least, in the case of the business world. Calmly stating what you feel is one of the recommended ways to express your negative feelings if you're in a meeting, complete with an explanation of why you are feeling angry, so that the situation can be quickly defused before the discussion gets derailed from emotional outbursts. On the other hand, showing no emotion what so ever (or at least making the attempt not to), and speaking in very precise and polite language to acknowledge what a manager is saying can be very ''very'' worrying to some managers.
* The same is true for healthy and communicative romantic relationships, where calmly explicit expression of one's hurt feelings is preferred to cryptic allusions or overly dramatic acts of retribution.
* Some mental disorders cause sufferers to not display emotions, so they have to verbally state what they are feeling if they want others to know. Learning disabilities can also cause this; a not uncommon trait of [[AspergersSyndrome autistic people]] is to regularly ask people to just flat out state, in terms as simple and unambiguous as "I feel angry" because they don't trust themselves not to misinterpret subtlety or hints at what emotion is being expressed/felt by the subject.
* Nonviolent Communication's 4 steps: "I hear that you call me a liar. I'm angry because my need for trust isn't met. Is it okay for you to explain to me why you think I lied?". Or so...
* A significant amount of Real-Life use of this trope, at least in the United States, is the result of the increases in popularity of psychotherapy in the 1970s and 1980s, many forms of which involved calm, emotionless statements about one's emotions ("I'm feeling some anger around this issue.") This is especially common among the relatively affluent population, because the working-class population was less likely to be in a position to pay for therapy.
* While it does seem strange telling someone how you feel, it seems even more strange when you ''sign'' it. At least in Swedish sign language, facial expressions are extremely important, and you typically don't even mention a certain feeling without making a matching expression. Although most cultures have at least one [[FlippingTheBird commonly used hand gesture]] that suggests anger and contempt. This is common amongst all sign languages, and it's not just emotions; there are a wide variety of statements that need an accompanying facial expression. This is because, as sign language doesn't use the spoken word, they don't have tone of voice to gather people's moods from, so they have to use facial expressions. This can feel extremely silly and unnatural to a hearing person learning the language, but its a part of the grammar of sign languages.
** This is the reason for the interest around Lydia Callis. She was the sign language interpreter when Mayor Bloomberg of New York City gave several televised addresses before Hurricane Sandy hit and received a lot of attention for what was seen as an over-the-top and entertaining interpretation. [[http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20121031/new-york-city/meet-mayor-bloombergs-sign-language-interpreter This interview]] sums up her job, and the necessity of exaggerated body language, quite well.
* It is often advised to talk this way around small children and encourage them to talk this way, because they may have difficulty reading and expressing emotion.
** Same deal with people with Asperger's Syndrome or some other kind of autistic spectrum disorder. Most of them will actually use this trope themselves so as to avoid having any confusion caused by misreading of their ways of showing emotions.
* While this can be useful in certain situations, there's a reason this trope and so many others are noted to be considered creepy on this very wiki (namely, [[SelfDemonstratingArticle they're creepy in fiction because they're creepy in real life]]). To take an example at random, when Sartin and [=MacLennon=] reviewed FATAL, one of the first things they mentioned was the clinical, unemotional, wannabe-professional attitude the creator adopted on message boards when discussing the game, and how unsettling they found it (which is both describing an example of this trope, and an example in and of itself--my head's starting to spin). You know what they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder.
* Psychologists recommend this to deal with your negative emotions. Letting out your anger by, say, hitting your pillow is actually a destructive activity -- it just increases your anger and makes it last longer, and it makes you more critical of the person you were mad at in the first place. Stating that you're angry and doing something constructive to solve the problem is the healthiest way to deal with anger.
