* The Music/InsaneClownPosse were supposed to face The Headbangers on the November 23 (taped November 17), 1998 ''WWE RAW'', as part of the Oddities-Headbangers feud, but Violent J said that they weren't ready. Wrestling/LunaVachon, the manager of The Oddities, was so stunned by this that she actually spoke in her normal voice instead of the monster voice she'd been using for over a decade.

* In {{Theatre/Hamilton}}, Alexander Hamilton is a MotorMouth who never passes up an opportunity to pick up a pen and write out his thoughts. In One Last Time, he is so distraught over [[spoiler: his boss George Washington's retirement]] that he goes into StunnedSilence and has to be urged into picking up a pen to write [[spoiler: Washington's farewell address]].

* Wrestling/LanceStorm is adamant that people use his Kayfabe last name ([[CaptainObvious that being Storm]]), and most of his commentaries are signed as Lance Storm. However, when he is ''truly'' serious about certain things, like the deaths of Wrestling/ChrisBenoit or [[http://www.stormwrestling.com/051814.html Road Warrior Hawk]], he has been known to sign off using his ''real'' name: Lance Evers.

*As a member of The Order Of The Neo-Solar Temple [[Wrestling/HunterJohnston Delirious]] was not nearly as erratic or hyper active due to Wrestling/{{UltraMantis Black}} putting him under the control of the Eye of Tyr, a Myth/{{Norse Mytholog|y}}ical artifact that can be used to control mind. Then Ares of Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes used the Eye, after getting it from Tim Donst as part of the BDK's formation at the 2009 Wrestling/{{CHIKARA}} SeasonFinale ''Three-Fisted Tales'', and used it to lure Delirious into the BDK. While on the one hand Delirious was more manic, Ares also tied a chain around his neck and made him the BDK's TeamPet.

* In ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'', [[CozyVoiceForCatastrophes Cecil]] is always pleasant and smooth in his delivery. When he's not? Something is very wrong, like his on-air breakdown when he thought [[LoveInterest Carlos]] had died, or the terror in his voice upon seeing the gorefest in [[spoiler: Kevin's studio]]; or very serious, like the sheer venom with which he wished that [[spoiler: rebel leader Tamika would find [=StrexCorp=] before they found her]].
** When Cecil refers to Steve Carlsberg as "Steve," and acknowledges his love for Abby and Janice, it's a sign how frightened he is by the Shadow People's invasion.
** Cecil is also known for his SkewedPriorities regarding what constitutes important news, and for [[DissonantSerenity alternating between mundane news stories and warnings of apocalyptic catastrophes without any discernible change in tone]]. So we know Night Vale has truly reached its DarkestHour in "Matryoshka" when Cecil passive-aggressively mocks his listeners for expecting him to respond to complaints about subpar radio programs instead of focusing on the various catastrophes destroying the town. Later in the same episode, Cecil becomes so overwhelmed by the seeming hopelessness of the situation that for the first time ever, [[spoiler:he almost signs off without bothering to give the Weather report or wish the listeners a good night]].

** One not for Jesus, but for another figure in his story, and which ties into real-life archaeological searches for historical evidence of the life and passion of the son of God. Remember the part where he was brought before Pontius Pilate, an extremely ruthless prefect, and Pilate, instead of his usual brutal routine, had the Jews choose between him and another prisoner on the occasion of the Passover? It just so happens that Jesus was brought before Pilate at an extremely delicate time for the Roman Empire, which had just executed Lucius Aelius Sejanus, once the most powerful man in the Empire apart from Caesar himself, on charges of treason against the Emperor Tiberius and was on the hunt for Sejanus's friends and allies; Pilate must've realized at the time that one wrong move and he himself could be next, so he handled Jesus's case with an uncharacteristically cautious approach.
* There is even a saying about Buddha, the poster boy for patience, serenity, that goes like this : "Even the Buddha will get angry if slapped thrice in the face" for TheStoic finally snapping. Basically, the threshold is high, but if you are stupid enough to repeatedly annoy them, even a Saint is going to snap at you, and it's going to be SeriousBusiness.

* Former Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver, Hines Ward, was notorious for ''always'' smiling on the field and sidelines. Dropped a pass (rare event for him), smile and shake it off. Hospitalize someone with a block? Smile and wave the medics over. When he lost a fumble in easy field goal range in the final minutes of a tied game against the Tennessee Titans by trying to stretch for extra yards, thereby costing the Steelers a sure chance to win the game in regulation, and allowing the Titans to take a knee and take the game to overtime, he was visibly pissed off with himself on the sidelines. The television commentators noted that he must have been ''really'' mad to stop smiling.

* ''TabletopGame/OnMightyThews'': Characters have what is called a "D20 trait", since each skill is assigned a dice value. By acting in concert with your D20 character trait, you earn a reroll token in a scene; but if you act ''opposite'' to it, you can roll a D20 for one skill roll, which means quite a bit when D12 is the largest available die.

** Factions that know [[BloodKnight the Orks]] well start getting ''very'' wary whenever the greenskins start to do anything that isn't either charging the closest enemy or getting ready to do so. Normally, it means they're about to try something [[ConfusionFu unusual, unpredictable and dangerous]]. If you are terribly unlucky, it means they're getting ''clever''. Millions tend to die when the orks try actual tactics because they're just not expected to do so, and it tends to be a sign that the Warboss in charge is getting dangerously competent from sheer volume of WAAAGH energy the troops are dispensing. The smarter they're acting, the bigger the horde, and the bigger the Warboss. [[spoiler:[[Literature/TheBeastArises Once]], this got bad enough that they had actual diplomats, people farms and technology that started outpacing the Imperium and the Eldar, and the resulting war nearly destroyed Terra, and with it the Imperium]].
