->''"Your lyrics lack subtlety! You can't just have your characters announce how they feel! That makes me feel angry!"''
-->-- '''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. In general situations, people doing that in RealLife comes across as [[UncannyValley awkward and unemotional]]: ''[[AliceAndBob Bob]]: [[ImagineSpot 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. [[TropesAreTools Tropes Are Not Bad]], 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. In fact, [[RealityIsUnrealistic people do often talk like this]] in situations where they would otherwise have trouble expressing their feelings, and how someone feels is not always as obvious as people think it is. See the Real Life section for more details.

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.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* This is how the Misaka Sisters in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' speak: once you know how a [[HiveMind Sister]] is [[CloningBlues different]] from the original [[ShockAndAwe Misaka Mikoto]], it's both creepy ''and'' rather [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman tragic]]. Specifically, they narrate their own thoughts and actions, which can get rather funny when they're trying to be deceptive:
-->'''Misaka 9982:''' "What is it?" asks Misaka as she feigns innocence, enjoying the refreshing aftertaste of the chocolate mint ice cream.
* ''Webcomic/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 style is also in contrast to the story's treatment of Haruhi's inner state, which is almost exclusively ShowDontTell. Once he is narrating how scared he is about a monster, when Itsuki muses that he sure doesn't act scared. We are treated to him devoting a paragraph or two of him listing how he has 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!
* ''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).
* Done in the ''Manga/SailorMoon'' manga to emphasize how utterly ''screwed'' Queen Beryl was: when Beryl started strangling Sailor Moon, Sailor Venus [[HiddenEyes glowered]] at her and muttered "...Now you've gone and pissed me off" before ''disemboweling'' her.
* Goku from ''Manga/DragonBall''. It happens mostly when he's afraid or tell his friends that he is afraid of something, without him actually showing that he is and he's usually smiling as he says it. If he does shows fear, then things are usually ''very'' bad. On the other hand, if he tells an opponent that he's mad at them, that usually means that he's close to going into a [[RageBreakingPoint murderous rage]]. In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', [[spoiler: After Goku Black and Future Zamasu revealed that Black murdered Chi-Chi and Goten after stealing his body and killing him]], Goku loses it, saying this trope almost word-by-word, before beating the mess out of them:
--> '''Goku''': [[ThisIsUnforgivable I won't forgive you]]! You….[[spoiler: took over my body. You even killed Chi-Chi and Goten]]! I'm mad… I'm seriously '''mad''' now! I ain't ever going to forgive you!
* Crosses over with CatchPhrase in ''Anime/DekoBokoFriends'', where a character named the Egg Prince would always say "That makes me boil!" whenever he got angry about something. Whenever this happens, the egg half of his head boils to the point that it cracks slightly.

* 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: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]].
* In ''ComicBook/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 ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}'' comics.
* John Doe, the Generic Man, a villain from the Creator/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".
* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'''s villain Black Mask had to say he was displeased to his goons, because his mask doesn't really show emotion.

[[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:Fan Works]]
* In ''Supernatural: TheAbridgedAnimation'', Dean yells out "I'M ANGRY ABOUT THIS!" several times throughout the series.
* In the sequel to ''Theatre/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 ''Anime/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 ''Code Geass'' 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]]!!''
* In ''FanFic/{{Amber Night and the Curse of the Diabolical Pastry Thief}}'', when Amber Night informs Cloud Control of her sorrows.
-->'''Amber Night''': Your action has caused boundless dejection in my cardiovascular organ!
* 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!"
* ''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.
* Goku's surrender against Cell in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' is rather upsetting:
--> '''Cell/Vegeta:''' Every word you just spoke has made me ''violently'' angry! Oh ''great!'' now I'm agreeing with ''Vegeta/Cell!'' Look what you made me do!

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Played for laughs in a scene in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', when callous insurance executive Mr. Huph begins his reprimand for his employee Bob Parr with "I'm not happy Bob, ''not'' happy". When he 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 i'''[[RunningGag SQUIRREL!!]]'''
* In the ''Disney/TheJungleBook2'', Shere Khan invokes this while interrogating Kaa on Mowgli's whereabouts.
-->'''Shere Khan:''' Oh, please don't insult my intelligence; it makes me ''irritable''.
** Kaa, on the other hand, ''truthfully'' has ''no idea'' where Mowgli is, but Shere Khan won't believe him and continues to threaten the snake. So, out of fear, Kaa lies to the tiger that Mowgli's at the swamp, allowing him to flee.
* Fix-It-Felix Jr. in ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' has a moment of this.
-->'''Felix:''' I'm just so.... ''[[GoshDarnItToHeck cross]]'' with you!!

[[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 [[IsThisWhatAngerFeelsLike 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|1984}}'', 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 [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever a giant version of]] [[ItWasHisSled the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man]]. Blame Ray...)
* In ''Film/CabinFever'', Marcy uses an awkwardly irrelevant metaphor about plane crashes to tell Paul "This makes me feel horny." To the director's credit, her speech as is probably has a more plausible finesse to it than if she'd just grabbed him and said [[GreatWayToGo "Well, we're gonna die anyway. Let's screw."]] 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 naive]] reply: "Don't worry! I'm healthy."
* The albino ghost twins in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded''. 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." The irony is, Anakin [[EvilCannotComprehendGood legitimately had no clue]] how repulsed she was by what he had become, and he still didn't get it even after she said it to his very face. 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," [[DullSurprise 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 ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl''. After all, it's the first thing Barbossa has felt in ''ten years''.
-->'''Barbossa:''' I ''feel''... cold...
* ''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.
* ''Film/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.
* ''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.
* [[TropesAreTools 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 terrifying example from Emperor Commodus. "It vexes me. I'm terribly vexed." In a tone of almost light frivolity. Far more chilling than his histrionic rages, it showed how Commodus was becoming more and more unhinged.
* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/{{Signs}}'', when Graham and Merrill run around the house to scare what they think are troublesome neighbor kids:
-->'''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/Scream3''. 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 Creator/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 ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy'' did this all the time, leading to some of the funniest lines in the movie.
* 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."
* Steve Martin's character in ''Film/BabyMama'' is so zen he can only express anger in the same tone of voice you'd expect from a yoga instructor.
* John Tuturro's character in ''Film/AngerManagement'' is pretty easy to read, but due to the AM treatment he's still expected to air out his emotions this way:
--> I went from happy to angry, skipped sad, now I feel like kicking his ass!
* ''Film/MoonriseKingdom'' has a great deal of this, partially because the main characters are two children. Creator/WesAnderson is [[DramaticDeadpan fond of this.]]
--> '''Walt Bishop:''' I hope the roof flies off and I get sucked up into space.
* ''Film/TheRoom'' gives us Creator/TommyWiseau's infamous lines "You are tearing me apart, Lisa!" and "Everybody betrayed me, I'm fed up with this world!"

* 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. 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 feels 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 hides her emotions so thoroughly that even saying she's angry shocks her friends.

[[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.
* 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 does this 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]])...
* {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in an episode of ''Music/FlightOfTheConchords'' when the agent says "What's that emotion that makes you go 'RRRRRRRR'?"
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Anya 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!" It becomes [[TropesAreNotBad surprisingly effective]] in "The Body," when [[spoiler: Buffy's mother Joyce]] dies abruptly. After asking tactless questions and being scolded for it, Anya breaks down and starts ranting about how she's confused and upset by the concept of death, which no-one seems to be able to explain to her.
** [[PhysicalGod Glory]] does this as a RunningGag; not because she doesn't get angry, but because she's {{Nigh Invulnerab|ility}}le and [[ItsAllAboutMe totally self-involved]].
* 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]], [[BlackAndGrayMorality 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.
-->'''Frasier:''' [[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]].
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'':
** Another example of Cleese doing this can be found in the "Dirty Fork" sketch.
--->'''[[LargeHam John Cleese]]:''' ''{{You bastard}}s!'' 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 cherry on top is that to demonstrate how he's feeling, [[GallowsHumor he immediately gasses everyone else in the room to death.]]
-->'''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\\
>: (
* 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." Of course, it could be seen as necessary since Mr. Flibble is a hand puppet.
* 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]].
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** Castiel, eating hamburgers: "These 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 irritation, "It frustrates me when you'd rather hide than fight".
** [[spoiler:Demon Dean]] to Cole: "What did you think was gonna happen, huh? You just stroll up here and say "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!" And I'd just roll over? Well, that's just--it makes me sad."
* One episode of ''Series/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 ''Series/{{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 accidentally 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 ''Series/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 ''Series/OrphanBlack'' expresses this trope in the episode Variations under Domestication, when she walks up to Delphine Cormier, saying that she is bored.
* April Ludgate of ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' 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.
* In the ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'' episode "Why Is Josh in a Bad Mood?", Josh is in, well, a bad mood. So he goes to his dojo and sings [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZJrP8qeFhc "Angry Mad."]] All about how he is angry and mad.
* ''Series/SesameStreet''
** The famous "I'll Miss You, Mr. Hooper" episode, when Big Bird finally realizes that his beloved Mr. Hooper has died and is never coming back, he expresses his anger: "I don't like it. It makes me sad." Falls under the variant of teaching children how to handle emotions, and does not ''at all'' detract from one of the most powerful moments in TV history.
*** Within the same "I'll Miss You, Mr. Hooper" episode, several segments about emotion are included. An older segment, with Bert and a kid named John-John, presents a scenario if one of them were to lose something (a collection of paper clips). While John-John says he'd feel sad (and demonstrates), Bert fills the trope by saying he'd be very angry if he lost his paper clips.
** Among other segments during the show's history, one memorable one from 1975, known to fans as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-3jSTs2Zsw "Get Mad Goat"]], has said title character as the ButtMonkey for others' pranks: a jig-dancing dog who pulls his beard, a cat setting off a firecracker behind him, a duck making fun of him, and a selfish pig who refuses to share his ice cream cone. The goat, in expressing his anger, tells viewers that in certain situations, anger is justified and can be a healthy, even appropriate emotion ("It ain't bad to get mad").
* ''Series/SeventhHeaven'': What passed for dialogue was often alternating {{Character Filibuster}}s combined with this trope, in which the characters were analyzing their own and others' emotions ad nauseum.
* Ditto for ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration,'' to the point where one wonders if the characters were capable of feeling ''anything'' without announcing it. You knew the writers were going for subtlety when a bit of ''time'' would pass before the emotions were publicly announced. The point of this is presumably just to show that in a utopian future, everyone is totally in touch with their emotions and capable of dealing with them rationally, but in practice it gives off an almost UncannyValley vibe, as if the writers are so uncomfortable with basic human feelings that they don't know how to deal with them except by announcing them. Counsellor Troi was relatively justified in this by the nature of her job (and anyone talking to her, for that matter), and Data because trying to feel emotions was his whole shtick.

* Music/JohnnyCash: Many things made him feel angry, among them injustice and racism. Many of his most popular songs have been about the oppressed, shunned and people on the social fringes through no fault of their own. One of the most memorable examples of this came from his 1964 album ''Bitter Tears'' [[note]](a concept album containing songs about the issues Native Americans faced)[[/note]] and particularly a song called "The Ballad Of Ira Hayes." Written by Peter [=LaFarge=], the song tells the life story of Hayes, a young Native American of Pima descent who joins the Marines during World War II and after D-Day participated in the flag-raising of Iwo Jima. The trope really kicks in as Cash tells Hayes' post-war life, how he was treated with disrespect, the government building a dam to cut off a supply of clean water and that he fell into poverty and alcoholism; Cash's anger builds toward the end, reaching its apex as he explains that Hayes died drunk, laying face down in a waterlogged ditch as he took his last breath, his corpse left there to rot.
* 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/TheBeatles' "I'll Cry Instead":
-->"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."
* [[Music/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.
* The most well-known [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Titanic_(song) song about]] the UsefulNotes/RMSTitanic states in its chorus that "It was sad when that great ship went down."

[[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."

* 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 {{justified|Trope}} 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}}s 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 ''Theatre/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."
* Hermia in Act Three, Scene Two of "A Midsummer Night's Dream": "I am amazed and know not what to say."

[[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/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords'' 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 themselves, 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]]''.
* {{Justified|Trope}} 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 to other elcor 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!!" to announce that they were, in fact, falling asleep and safe to sneak past.
** Whether you find it a TearJerker or {{Narm}}tastic, 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.
* Invoked in ''VideoGame/StarCraftIILegacyOfTheVoid'' by Artanis in regards to his feeling of seeing Purifier!Fenix to Vorazun. Being disconnected from the Khala makes it difficult for a Protoss to convey their emotions to one another, especially due to their lack of facial features.
* ''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!" Justified, as this is coming from a 15 year old who had his best friend betray him and seemingly die by his hand, a girl who spoke with him just to be kind get taken away to God-Knows-Where by his tormentors, his happy life in Twilight Town revealed to be an illusion and on top of it all, has now just found out the hated foe that appears to stand before him is nothing more than a hologram and in the end, there is no escaping his fate. Really, at this point. what else ''is'' there 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]]."
** Hayner's line towards the start of the game, in response to Seifer spreading rumours that Hayner and his gang were stealing from people [[spoiler:or so he thinks]]. "Have you ever been this ticked off before in your life? 'Cause I haven't!" It doesn't help that he sounds ''mildly'' annoyed at most.
** Sora, on the train when leaving Twilight Town for the first time, remarks "You know... I'm sad." It's also justified, as he doesn't really know ''why'' he's sad. (It's because he has Roxas's memories, and he just said goodbye to Roxas's closest friends, whom Sora himself had only just met.)
* Interesting version shows up in ''VideoGame/ExaPico''. Not so much as the game itself as the series' {{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. Granted, she ''is'' a child herself, so it's more understandable than most examples.
** Also, in ''VideoGame/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.
** Part of Squall's problem relating to others in ''Final Fantasy VIII'' is that he ''won't'' engage in this. In Cid's office in Balamb Garden, when Squall asks him to handle what he's planning to rescue Balamb Garden from being hit by missiles, Cid asks him why he wants to do it. The player is shown at least five specific reasons in Squall's thoughts why he wants to take on the mission before he finally lands on "I don't know why...Who cares?" and tells Cid "My feelings have nothing to do with it, sir." Cid comments that "Quistis was right" about him and if Quistis is in the party, she can barely hide a grin. Later on in the game, as Squall is trying carry Rinoa on his own across an intercontinental bridge to Esthar, he monologues to her unconscious body about how messed up he is and about how he's fallen for her.
** 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."
** In the dragons' language in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', "ruth" is used as a curse equivalent to "damn it". Its literal translation? "Rage".
* ''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!''
* In ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', the Whomp King says "It makes me so mad!" as he rants about being walked all over like a stepping stone. He repeats this line in the [[NostalgiaLevel remake of Whomp's Fortress]] in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2''.
** The Wiggler in Tiny-Huge Island uses this trope ''three times''. Before his boss battle, he complains about his house being flooded and yells "It makes me so... MAD!!!". When Mario jumps on his head, he screams "Now I'm really, really, REALLY mad!". After the battle, the Wiggler talks about how the stars at night "make me feel... peaceful."
* In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', when the Heavy dominates another player, he will sometimes say "I am very happy!". With Pyrovision enabled, he may also say this when [[MoodDissonance on fire]].
* 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.
** [[TropesAreTools 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' narration.
-->''The word he so obviously chose, "outsider," pierced my heart.''
* In ''VideoGame/EarthboundBeginnings'', if Ninten does not fall for The Hippie's Bullhorn attack, the battle's running commentary will actually say, "This made Ninten angry."
* Similar to the elcor are the Glitch race from ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}''. Everything they say is prefaced by a single word stating their intended emotion.
--->'''Glitch village shop owner''': "Cozening. You know you want something."
* PlayedForLaughs in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' with Azura and Keaton's support conversations. Azura is [[TheStoic notoriously stoic]] most of the time, so Keaton attempts to {{Troll}} her into showing emotions. Upon having her singing insulted, Azura's response is "I'm very angry with you right now"... while still being completely straight-faced.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Often a JustifiedTrope in Visual Novels shown from a first-person perspective with un-voiced protagonists. Since we never actually see or hear the protagonist, there's no body language or tone of voice to indicate their emotions, so spelling them out is necessary, especially when no-one else is around.
* 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]].
* Seriously spoileriffic example from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'': [[spoiler:When you finally corner the phantom, while he's also making a seriously [[UncannyValley weird, loose-masked]] terrified face, he's also screaming out about himself being afraid, and feeling fear. What justifies this, however, and moves it into effective territory, is that the phantom is a complete and utter sociopath who doesn't feel emotions at ''all'', or didn't until now. It's almost certain the fact he realizes he's finally feeling something, and that the feeling's fear, is only freaking him out even ''more'']].

[[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]].
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'':
** Caboose does this a few times.
--->'''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]''
** Felix does this at one point after [[spoiler:discovering that the only way the key can work is if he kills Doyle, whom he took the key from]].
--->'''Felix:''' I! AM EXTREMELY! '''FRUSTRATED!'''

** The Prince from ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaWarriorWithin'' "[[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2004/12/03 smolders with generic rage]]".
** Also, Gabe wishes he could [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2007/4/9/ hate you to death.]]
* ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' has [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2007/05/22/episode-849-wherein-no-ones-power-level-is-9000/ "Your continued attacks fill me with equal parts rage and anger."]]
* ''Webcomic/ExterminatusNow'' has an instance similar to the ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}'' example in [[http://exterminatusnow.comicgenesis.com/d/20080112.html this strip.]]
* This ''Webcomic/{{Achewood}}'' [[http://www.achewood.com/index.php?date=06212002 comic]].
* 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."]]
* In ''Webcomic/TheStoryOfAnima'', Jade's seemingly stoic bodyguard Pocket is merely incapable of ''expressing'' his emotions, so he's decided to try vocalizing them. [[http://tapastic.com/episode/43379 His timing couldn't be worse]].
* In ''Webcomic/TrippingOverYou'', when Eli finds out in quick succession that [[spoiler: his son is dating a man and intends to drop out of school, and his nephew was sent to the hospital under mysterious circumstances]], he quite calmly says that "This could not be any more overwhelming" while sorting things out.
* In ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'', after seeing her apartment and the bar in which she works burn down, Brun states that she is "becoming upset" with no change in demeanor other than a slight trembling. Justified as she apparently [[AmbiguousDisorder has trouble expressing emotion]].
* In [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=219 this]] ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' strip, [[spoiler:the Omega Goo]] has this to say after Ellen flees: "Target has fled. Proceeding with a prepared set of curse words in order to imitate anger. Damn. Crap. [[CurseCutShort F--]]"

* [[http://icanhascheezburger.com/2008/05/01/funny-pictures-i-haz-a-mad-you-iz-it I haz a mad. You iz it]].
* Sung merrily by Randy of ''WebVideo/{{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!" Justified in that as a NighInvulnerable superhero (and kind of a {{Jerkass}}), he's not as familiar with pain as his archnemesis.
* 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.
* WebVideo/ProJared stated he felt anger after playing ''VideoGame/SonicFreeRiders'' in his Kinect review video because the very poor motion control hurt his back.
* 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 episode 49 of ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'', [[ScienceHero Carlos]] explains "some, but not all" of the emotions he felt while figuring out how the Old Oak Doors work.
* In the ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'' episode "The Cheesen One", a mother is concerned about her baby's imminent violent death, saying, "That really cheeses me off."

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In the [[WesternAnimation/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat Felix the Cat TV Cartoon]] [[Recap/JoeOrioloFelixTheCat1x51AtomicDriveExplosionOfMasterCylinder "Atomic Drive Explosion of Master Cylinder"]], Felix insults Master Cylinder, which briefly shorts him out, and afterwards, he tells Felix that he's made him angry.
* Used constantly in ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsAdventuresInCareALot''. Granted, the show is partially to help children learn to deal with their emotions, but that doesn't make it any less annoying. It's still used in the follow up series ''WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot'', although to a lesser extent.
* ''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 trope namer and source of the page quote is [[UnCanceled ex-finale]] episode "[[Recap/FuturamaS4E18TheDevilsHandsAreIdlePlaythings The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings]]", in which Fry's complete incompetence at writing dialog causes him to fill an opera with the trope. The Robot Devil calls him out on it, [[HypocriticalHumor only to fall victim to the trope himself]].
** 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.
--->'''Marge:''' Good! I'm glad we had this talk.
--->'''Homer:''' Me too. (Walks away happily whistling)
* 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/XMen'' 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 ''WesternAnimation/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]] {{clon|ingBlues}}e 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 Höek", 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.
* Done in the second episode of ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' when Amy organizes a councilor session between a sleep-deprived Sonic and an Eggman who's crashing in his house. Amy suggests having Sonic express his annoyance with the Doctor in this manner.
-->'''Amy''': Let's frame our statements with "When you do this, it makes me feel this."
-->'''Sonic''': Okay, let's see, umm... When you live here, it makes me feel angry. ...Because you're a horrible roommate and nobody in this house likes you.
* On ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', besides little kids, Quips' wife Monica is the only person who finds him funny, but she's incapable of laughter and can only express it in words.
-->'''Monica:''' He is so funny.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': In "One Bad Apple", Sweetie Belle responds to [[TheBully Babs Seed]]'s bullying of the Cutie Mark Crusaders by asking herself "Why do I feel like crying?". [[spoiler: She does when Babs commandeers their treehouse.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersGenerationOne'' has Bruticus, a CombiningMecha formed from the Combaticons. Unfortunately, even though four of his five components are of significantly above-average intelligence, the resulting gestalt mind is [[DumbMuscle dumb as a stump]] (which is probably [[BloodKnight Brawl]]'s fault). This leads to a supposedly threatening line in "Starscream's Brigade" being delivered in entirely deadpan HulkSpeak.
-->'''Bruticus:''' Bruticus angry. Bruticus... devastate... Devastator.
* PlayedForLaughs in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Presents the Ridonculous Race'' with [[{{Goth}} Crimson and Ennui]]. They almost always look completely impassive and speak in a dull monotone, but will describe their own, or the other's, feelings for the audience.
-->'''Crimson:''' What's wrong?\\
'''Ennui:''' ...Nothing.\\
'''Crimson:''' But you're so emotional.
* This is often used on ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues'' and is often combined with the show's particular brand of FakeInteractivity. There were also at least a couple of episodes specifically about feelings and, of course, this trope was right at the fore. A typical example of how this might go...
-->'''Joe:''' So, tell me, do you think Felt Friend Sam is feeling happy, or sad? ... ...\\
'''Kid's Voice:''' Sad!\\
'''Joe:''' That's right! Sam is sad because Anna wouldn't share with him.
* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'': "The Shaving" opens with Meatwad wearing a Hulk face mask for Halloween:
-->'''Meatwad:''' Just so you'll know...you won't like me when I'm angry.\\
'''Master Shake:''' (''brandishing a sword'') I don't like you anyway. Now hold still. You're about to become Hall ''and'' Oates.

* In any pornographic video, it is practically guaranteed that at some point, someone will comment on how great it all feels.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* 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.
** Much of American Sign Language is the use of Non-Manual Markers (facial expressions.) If you need to convey happiness, look ecstatic. If you need to convey sadness, look miserable. It can also help those who don't even speak the language to get some idea of what you're saying.
* 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).
