Added DiffLines:

** In the original shorts, Porky was a nice, patient everyman whose patience had limits.


* ''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'': The sign on Piglet's house that reads "Trespassers Will [[spoiler:[[FridgeHorror Be Shot!!!]]]]" To be fair, the house belonged to his grandfather (Piglet assumes, due to SignsOfDisrepair, that Trespassers Will is his grandfather's name), but assuming Piglet's family has the same disposition as him, it's still rather surprising.

** How about in ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'', where the innocent Sorcerer's Apprentice brings his broom to life, finds that it is doing its job [[GoneHorriblyRight a little too well]], and attempts to rectify the situation... by brutally chopping it to smithereens [[AnAxeToGrind with an axe]]. [[GoryDiscretionShot We only see their shadows on the wall...]]

** Edd is the nicest character on the show, but test his patience or hurt him in any way and he will use those smarts of his to ''destroy you''. In the Picture Show, [[BreakTheCutie Edd finally snaps]] [[RageBreakingPoint after a mean prank is pulled on him]]. Ed is terrified, while Eddy goes [[BreakTheHaughty from nonplussed to breaking down in tears]].

Added DiffLines:

** Spinel counts as this as well, understandable when you know what happened to her before the series even began. When she's cheerful, she's the loveliest friend you could ever dream of. When provoked, Spinel has the ability to take out the Crystal Gems AND Steven, [[spoiler: bear in mind he is [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Pink Diamond,]]]] without any difficulty.

Added DiffLines:

** This has been cranked UpToEleven as of ''Future''. Due to his PTSD, Steven is extremely temperamental, and lashes out at any threat without hesitation, to the point where it goes from self-defense, to fighting, to full-on ultraviolence.

Added DiffLines:

*''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'': Chas Finster may be a nervous and awkward NiceGuy like his son Chuckie, but he knows when he's had enough. In one episode, Stu and Didi are having a petty feud with Howard and Betty, both factions hating and insulting each other with poor Chas stuck in the middle and unable to make them calm down and reconcile. Near the end, the babies have wandered off (as usual) and when the families do nothing about it but argue some more, Chas is [[RageBreakingPoint absolutely]] ''[[RageBreakingPoint furious]]'' and calls them on their childish behavior, bringing them all to shame and ending the feud. As he delivers his [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech reason-you-suck speech]] to them all, he even sounds like he's ''[[BerserkerTears crying]]''!
-->'''Chas:''' Look at you! Don't you see what you've done?! While you've been insulting each other and bringing up every petty difference from your past, you've forgotten about your children, the most important thing in your insignificant lives! ''(starts crying)'' You ought to be ashamed!



--->'''Spongebob: '''Listen, you crustaceous cheapskate! Squidward's been living at ''MY'' house, driving me crazy! '''AND YOU'RE NOT GONNA HIRE HIM BACK ''ALL BECAUSE OF A STUPID DIME!?!??!?'''''

** Even Owen has his moments. In "Trial by Tri-Armed Triathlon", he's cuffed to Heather for the challenge, and in the last challenge, Heather starts badmouthing all the eliminated contestants. Owen snaps when she insults Izzy, leading him to cuss her out in the confessional in a similar manner to Lindsay earlier.

** Geoff and Bridgette are among the nicest characters on the show, but both show limits to their patience. When Geoff gets AcquiredSituationNarcissism in ''Action'''s Aftermath, Bridgette becomes increasingly frustrated with Geoff's sadistic actions and snaps in the third one, temporarily breaking up with him and having him put on his own Truth or Electrocution challenge to give him a taste of his own medicine and knock him back into his senses (it succeeds and they make up). Similarly, Geoff is outraged on ''World Tour'''s Aftermath when [[SmugSnake Blaineley]] (who has spent the season trying to cause tension between Geoff and Bridgette) has Bridgette sent to Siberia in her place, and he proceeds to humiliate Blaineley and trick her into getting shipped off to the competition.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'', Beth and Lindsay spend a good deal of the season under [[AlphaBitch Heather's]] heel, which makes these instances all the more satisfying. First, Beth ''finally'' realizes that she's serving someone she hates, and as a result drops the challenge and [[BackstabbingTheAlphaBitch begins shooting her with her paintball gun]]. Then, much later, after Heather pretty much tosses Lindsay aside despite total loyalty, she responds by cussing her out, much to Heather's shock (and everyone else's approval); sadly, the latter moment was subject to {{Bowdlerizaton}} in US broadcasts.

** Harold took a ''lot'' of torment from Duncan over the course of the first season. When Duncan's love interest is suddenly an inexplicably voted off, the end of the episode reveals it was because Harold cheated to switch the votes.

Added DiffLines:

* Sorrowful from ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower'' is normally a rather cowardly, soft-spoken creature, much to other characters' surprise when they first meet him. He is still, however, a full grown dragon and, when his anger is aroused, can repel cannon fire, toss aside tanks, and tear through armor like tissue paper to [[HilarityEnsues deliver an angry lecture on just how bad he finds the villains' behavior.]]
