Unstoppable Rage: Web Original
  • Happens occasionally in Survival of the Fittest, especially when a nice guy is pushed too far.
    • Such as Adam Dodd going ballistic on Cody Jenson near the end of V1, who he has every reason to want dead.
  • Sailor Nothing: although Himei usually just wills her opponents into non-existence, she has been known to tear them apart with her bare hands if put under sufficient emotional stress.
  • While it is debatable whether Nist Akath of Dwarf Fortress falls under this or Video Games, the scene where Ironblood is betrayed by the nobles certainly springs to mind. Ironblood is poisoned by the nobles who are servants of an evil god, stripped naked, and thrown into the arena he himself ordered costructed. Then, to kill him, they release a hydra to kill him. While naked, poisoned, and vomiting, Ironblood kills the Hydra with his bare hands. By crushing its skulls. Then, he climbs out of the arena, and... well...
    "As he watched the dwarf crushed his wife's form, he came to a sudden, horrid realization. Ironblood didn't use an axe because he needed it. He used it to be kind. And right now he wasn't being kind."
  • Badfic is so horrendously bad that unstoppable rage is a common reaction for Protectors of the Plot Continuum agents, especially when a favorite canon character is threatened.
  • Parodied in Linkara's review of Wolverine: Adamantium Rage.
  • Caboose tries to intentionally invoke this in himself when he and Sarge are trapped in a bizarre land of eternal war in Red vs. Blue. 'I am Michael J Caboose ... and I HATE BABIES!' Followed by 'Hurk! Blagh!' repeatedly.
    • Comes back in Season 10; as the Blood Gulchers are lining up for a battle, Church says he needs Caboose to get a little angry; Caboose replies that he forgot how to do that. Church helps him remember, and Caboose charges headlong through a massive group of Tex copies.
  • From The Gamers: 'Barbarian rage! Blood, death, and vengeance!'. Success rate? 1 for 2.
  • When Flint kills Ruby in Bunny Kill 4, Snowball proceeds to flip out in a manner that can only be described as Super Saiyan meets frenzied Mimiga.
    • And in 5, Dust does Snowball one better after killing him under the influence of the Psycho Serum that Smoke had injected into him by completely devastating Smoke's army of mooks, wrecking his helicopter gunship as he tries to get away and then sending the bastard right through its rotor blades.
  • In Fine Structure, a series of otherwise normal humans acquire Flying Brick powers. In each case, for the first 15.8 seconds after getting their new powers, they are stuck in an absolute berserker rage wherein they immediately attempt to obliterate anything and everything around them. Since they also perceive time at an accelerated rate, this gives them long enough to kill millions of people if the local population density is high enough.
  • The whole point of the RAEG TRAIN.
  • The Angry German Kid, which is a staged performance of a kid getting angry after his computer breaks, and then he proceeds to scream and throw his keyboard across the room.
  • Along with his better-known abilities, SCP-682 is noticeably prone to these. Given that he's unstoppable even outside his rages, this is a bad thing.
  • Among the boards of 4chan, /v/ is (rightly) the butt of many jokes as being rage incarnate...
  • The mere mention of the infamous Bat Credit Card from Batman & Robin has this effect on The Nostalgia Critic.
  • Arthťon in Noob Season 4 finale, after Kary turns out to be more interested in the new game content than in their wedding ceremony.
