Top 10 Anime Scenes Where the Hero Goes Berserk

Sometimes, our tempers get the better of us. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 Anime Scenes Where the Hero Goes Berserk.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the times where protagonists in anime were literally triggered, and consequently went totally bananas. Prepare yourselves for a few wrathful spoilers down the line!

#10: Kamui Unleashed

“Kill la Kill” (2013-14)

Ryuko has never been one to quell her temper during a fight, but it’s fair to say that here she went totally off the rails. Not surprising, since her father’s killer suddenly dropped in and happily confessed. Her resulting outrage proves to be so potent that Senketsu can’t handle it, and consequently mutates her into a monstrous entity, complete with boiling blood and way too many teeth. It’s a hell of a look for her, just a shame she wasn’t able to use it to give Nui exactly what she deserved!

#9: Mob Goes 100

“Mob Psycho 100” (2016-)

On an average day, this little ball of awkwardness is just about the nicest guy you could meet. At least until you decide to beat up his brother; then you might want to clear the area, lest you fancy seeing Mob unleash his dark side. Koyama learns this the hard way, who for all his bravado and psychic abilities, is woefully unprepared for Mob after he reaches 100 percent pissed off. As we all know, once he’s at his emotional pinnacle, there’s nothing that can stop him. Evidenced from when Mob sends his brother’s attacker right into the ground – face first.

#8: Monster Card Rampage

“Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters” (2000-04)

The world of children’s card game is a cutthroat business, something Weevil Underwood learns first-hand when he unwisely jokes that Yugi is gone forever during a duel. Despite being armed with an impressive new deck, the bug boy ends up facing the Pharaoh’s unbridled fury, given how he had just lost his partner in crime to the Seal of Orichalcos. Without Yugi to play spiritual good cop, no one can stop the King of Games from attacking Weevil again and again until his life points are well into the minus numbers.

#7: Meliodas Destroys Danafor

“The Seven Deadly Sins” (2014-18)

Well, least we now know how the Captain of the Sins got his infamous moniker of wrath. In order to reclaim his lost demonic power, Meliodas is forced to relive the haunting moment where he lost control of his rage following the death of his beloved Liz. Unable to hold back the anger inside, the Dragon Sin’s own dark power overwhelms him, reducing the Kingdom of Danafor to nothing more than a crater in the process. Look on the bright side Meliodas, at least your lover got reincarnated…into an infant. But hey, beggars can’t be choosers!

#6: Hollow Resurrection

“Bleach” (2004-12)

Apparently, not even a gaping hole in the torso is enough to keep this Substitute Shinigami down. While initially overwhelmed by Ulquiorra’s power, Orihime’s cries of despair are all Ichigo needs to claw his way back from death, only now bearing a much more nightmarish guise, one that comes complete with a lot of Predator sound effects and a crazy amount of laser beams. Now more powerful than even the Espada’s Segunda Etapa form, Ichigo and his inner Hollow proceed to rip Ulquiorra to pieces. Yep, this is all on you Orihime, well done.

#5: Cemetery Battle

“Gintama” (2006-)

Despite being famed for his sword skills as well as being a demon on the battlefield, Gintoki Sakada is mostly known for acting like a complete doofus, one who always ends up failing at even the simplest of odd jobs. Not in this case. After Otose ends up wounded via the blade of her rival Deva and former friend Jirochou, Gin goes full-on White Demon. Armed with nothing more than his trusty wooden sword, he easily crushes nearly every gravestone in sight while trying to put Jirochou six foot under.

#4: Naruto Lets The Fox Out Of The Bag

“Naruto Shippuden” (2007-17)

We’ll admit it was an odd time for Hinata to find the courage to confess her love to her ninja heartthrob, but it at least it ended up giving us this epic scene. While trying to defend Naruto from Pain’s assault, the Hyuga heiress finds herself grievously wounded. The knuckle-headed ninja doesn’t take too kindly to this, once again losing control to the Demon Fox inside of him. Now completely taken over by his rage that, Naurto instantly goes all the way to six tails. Pain may have his own fair share of internal baggage, but he’s got nothing on a teen Jinchuruki who just watched his future wife get stabbed!

#3: Guts Cuts Off His Own Arm

“Berserk” (1997-98)

We had to get a little creative with this one, seeing how bloody rampages are kind of Guts’ bread and butter. The Black Swordsman may have angrily sliced his way through plenty of demons and enemy soldiers in his times, but in terms of sheer desperation, nothing tops the time where he was willing to mutilate his own arm to escape the jaws of an apostle. Of course, given how Casca was being violated by Griffith at the time, you can see why he would be willing to go so far. It’s a hellish sight to behold, the only thing more unnerving being the savage expression spread across Guts’ face. Now that’s rage.

#2: Gon vs Pitou

“Hunter x Hunter” (2011-14)

You wouldn’t have thought a good kid like Gon would have had a dark side. Pitou probably thought so to, at least until he decided to taunt him with the corpse of his deceased friend. After discovering that his buddy Kite was gone for good, Gon gives into his hatred and unleashes all of his latent Nen, transforming into an older version of himself, equipped with enough strength to match the King of the Chimera Ants. Fuelled by the desire to seek vengeance on the wicked kitty, the young Hunter proceeds to smash Pitou’s face to bloody chunks, to the point where the Royal Guard is left essentially headless. Ouch.

#1: Eva 01 the Beast

“Neon Genesis Evangelion” (1995-96)

The good news, Shinji got back into the robot. The bad news? It’s gone totally feral and developed quite a taste for Angel flesh. When one of the alien invaders nearly overpowers them, Shinji’s pleads for his Eva Unit to get a second wind…something that seems to strike a chord with the sentient mecha, leading it to go berserk and slaughtering the Angel. All before chowing down. All the NERV agents can do is hopelessly look on as Unit 01 goes primal.
