24 Times Anime Characters Snapped And Went Berserk

Updated July 23, 2020 29.3k votes 5.6k voters 179.7k views24 items

Some of the greatest moments in anime come when characters are pushed to their limits. Whatever is happening to them is so upsetting that their usual coping mechanisms or battle tactics just aren't cutting it.

Among the best anime characters who snapped who are those who unleashed an attack that no one thought they were capable of, like Gohan when he decides to stop sitting idly by and beat the tar out of Frieza. Others don't get physically violent, but verbally eviscerate another person in a way that's completely unlike them, like Nadeko Sengoku does in Monogatari. 

Which characters have the most awesome moments of losing it?

    Roy Mustang Unleashes Hell Upon Envy In 'FMA: Brotherhood'

    Roy Mustang Unleashes Hell Upo is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list 24 Times Anime Characters Snapped And Went Berserk
    Photo: Bones

    If there's one thing that Envy taught us in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, it's that you shouldn't piss off Roy Mustang. After walking in on the homunculus strangling his "irreplaceable subordinate" Riza Hawkeye, Mustang loses it and pummels Envy over and over with deadly explosions. His final attack is so powerful it causes Envy to slump over and reveal his powerless true form - a small caterpillar-like creature that is helpless without a host or Philosopher's Stone to draw power from.

    Gon Reveals His Terrifying Form To Neferpitou In 'Hunter x Hunter (2011)'

    Gon is a character who rarely gets too angry or upset. Therefore, his rage scene came as a shock to most viewers. After Neferpitou kills Kite, Gon becomes so enraged that he transforms into a terrifying and unrecognizable form. He easily overpowers Neferpitou and even kills them. If it weren't for Killua interfering, Gon would have killed Komugi and himself since his power was too strong and self-destructive.
