Suggest renaming trope "Yangire." It's similar to Yandere, but without love being the cause of the mood swing. Info here: http://myanimelist.net/clubs.php?cid=9724

That name is far more opaque than the current one so it won't be renamed. You can set up a redirect if you like, though.

Are the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic examples truly examples? I mean, some of the ones I can see, but others not so much.

Pinkie Pie- Okay, I can sort of see it, based off the episode where she went crazy and started hosting a party with inanimate objects. In addition, there's her fanon interpretation. She might not be the best example, though.

Fluttershy- Honestly the best example out of the lot. Normally she's a Shrinking Violet, but there have been enough Beware the Nice Ones moments for it to be a running gag among bronies. If we keep any at all, I say we keep this.

Twilight- Uh... not really? She's suffered Sanity Slippage, but I don't think her behavior in "Lesson Zero" qualifies; if anything it's just that, Sanity Slippage.

Rarity- Uh... no? Unless I'm missing something, she barely counts. In the link she was angry for legitimate reasons (specifically, getting her diary published in a gossip forum).

Luna- If anything, a recovered Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds with No Social Skills.

In addition, the examples are extremely cluttered and could use some rewriting! I thought of asking first before I cleared out/changed the examples, to see if my issue with the current MLP example is legitimate. I personally suggest keeping Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy, removing everyone else, and cleaning it up.

Thoughts on the matter?

Yeah, I highly doubt 5 of the Mane Six are all examples of Cute and Psycho, that's not how it works. Also having temporary breakdowns or Sanity Slippage for a little bit shouldn't automatically make you this tripe. I think this is a heavy case of fanon overriding canon.
