Villainous Breakdown is the opposite of Heroic Breakdown and it is an extreme situation where a villain or an antagonist goes absolutely crazy.
They may often go into a fit of blind fury, although an insane laugh, yell, cry can also occur, or scary snarls and growls. Their Breakdowns can also be in form of lapses into a catatonic state as the shock of their defeat robs them of their wits.
When this happens, it does not mean that they would become helpless, as there is a chance where they can become more dangerous than they previously were. How severe one’s breakdown is varies, depending on the villain himself/herself or how close his/her goal was to being achieved.
Sometimes, it is instead triggered once the villain's downfall occurs, the breakdown can occur prior to revelation of the outcome of his/her actions.
A Villainous Hyper-Breakdown takes this to the extreme.
Notable forms of villainous breakdowns includes:
- Screaming out loud, commonly in form of either the Big "NO!" or the "This Cannot Be!".
- Desperately attempted to fix the whole matter in their own hands through more aggressive methods. Villains whose breakdown takes this form would obviously struggle to retain their own composure, but their minions or heroes could see that their attempt is more serious and aggressive than it normally would be.
- Either crying or throwing a tantrums.
- Angrily goes to attack everyone in his/her vicinity, even goes too far to the point where they would endangered both sides.
NOTE: Never add any fanon/fan-fiction examples anymore nor shorten the details of the breakdowns. This would lead to confusion to the readers.
