Villainous Overview

Typical villain's breakdown

~ Sir Hiss during Prince John's breakdown.

Villainous Breakdown is the opposite of Heroic Breakdown and is the extreme situation for a villain or an antagonist to go absolutely crazy.

They may often go into a fit of blind fury, although an insane laugh, yell, or cry can also occur. 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 happened, it does not mean that they 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 evildoer 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.

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 whom breakdown taking this form would obviously struggles to retain their composures, but their minions or heroes could see that their attempt more serious and aggressive than they normally would.
  • Either crying or throwing a tantrums.
  • Panicking.
  • 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/fanfiction examples anymore nor shorten the details of the breakdowns. This would lead to confusion to the readers.



Harry Potter

  • A notable example is Lord Voldemort's famous breakdown in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. After hearing a goblin reporting him about Harry breaking into Gringotts and stole Helga Hufflepuff's Cup, which is one of the Horcruxes, Voldemort was absolutely angry and killed that goblin immediately. After that, it was some other unfortunate goblins, bank guards and Death Eaters' turn. Voldemort mercilessly killed many of them with the Death Curse.
    • In the film adaptations, Voldemort went too far expressing this breakdown by slapping Lucius out of his logical reasoning about their situation, blasting Pius with a Killing Curse, and even had a brief physical fight against the revealed still-living Harry instead of both of them simply exchanges their trademark spells.
  • Dolores Umbridge: She expresses her breakdown further by restraining one of the angry centaurs that surrounds her and stated that she will have order on Hogwarts' grounds and beyond before being dragged away by them.
  • Troll: Furiously makes an attempt to try to attack Harry Potter due to the latter shove his wand on one of his nostrils. During the breakdown, he naturally oblivious with other threat (namely Hermione and Ron near him) where Ron succesfully knocked the troll flat by took his club away with a levitation spell and have it smack his head.

A Song of Ice and Fire

  • Gregor Clegane: As he fights Oberyn Martell, Gregor Clegane gets progressively more enraged. A combination of his exceptionally dim wits and the realization that he is being publicly accused of his crimes in front of the entire court leads to him screaming at Oberyn again and again. Finally, he MURDEROUSLY breaks down by yelling his early crime of savagley killing Elia Martell's whole family, before crushing Oberyn's head in sheer brute force. Even killing Oberyn doesn't help, because the spear that Oberyn wounded him with during the fight is coated in poison, leaving Clegane to die, slowly and painfully, and letting him screaming in agony and pain over the course of days.
  • Lysa Arryn: She sees her childhood crush forcibly kissing Sansa Stark, who is her niece, Lady Arryn goes completely insane, trying to throw poor Sansa (who did not instigate the kiss) out of the Moon Door. Her breakdown is cut short when she is thrown out said Door herself.

The Hunger Games

  • In the first novel, when Katniss destroys a stockpile of food and supplies belonging to the "Career" tributes that had given them a nigh-unbeatable edge, their leader, Cato, has a thrashing, screaming meltdown — Katniss, who manages to hide in the bushes just before he makes it back, marvels in a frightened way that people really can snap like that — and finally kills the engineer he'd had working for him, which obviously doesn't help his odds.


The Count of Monte Cristo

  • Fernand Mondego: He was angry when his son quit to duel the Count of Monte Cristo / Edmond Dantès and challenged Edmond Dantès to reveal himself. However, when the Count of Monte Cristo revealed himself to be Dantès, all of Fernand's rage had soon turned into sheer fear, and so horrified he was that he stumbled to his house, only to found out that his wife and son had abandoned him. Then, Fernand cried in despair and committed suicide.
  • Gérard de Villefort: Villefort's breakdown, or breakdowns, had several steps, one by one, and more and more intense.

He coldly and outright declared himself as a judge in front of his second wife, and he harshly declared that she will be on court, ulitimately driven her to suicide.
    • On the court against the murderer, Benedetto, Villefort was shocked to know the date of birth of the criminal which lead him to remember his affair with Baroness de Danglars which cause a child to born, exactly the same day and same place Benedetto was born. Villefort's composure was shaken once again when Benedetto revealed that he is the illegitimate child of Villefort, and he could hardly control himself from confessing his sins to everyone in Paris.
    • After returning home, scared and paranoid, Villefort only found that his wife dead with their son Édouard (he and Héloïse's child). He found his wife's last letter, which revealed that she was just a well-intentioned extremist who did everything for her son and had to kill him since she had choice no longer. This event even shocked Edmund Dantès, who had just revealed his true self to Villefort, yet never meant to harm his son. At last, all of those events above, and finally - Edmund Dantès's revealation, had crushed Villefort's mental state, turning him into a complete madman.

Attinger then claims that there is no such thing as good or bad aliens & it's just the humans or the aliens.

    • In the first-season finale, upon seeing Garrett embracing his newfound power as the Clairvoyant, Ward goes into a paranoia-fueled panic over not being given any orders to follow, as he has become too dependent on following him at this point in time. He calms down, however, when Garrett returns to giving him orders and gives him permission to go after his romantic obsession, Daisy "Skye" Johnson.
    • In the second-season finale, after Agent May tricks him into killing his current girlfriend, Agent Kara Lynn Palamas (aka "Agent 33"), he has one of the calmer examples of a villainous breakdown. He gets worked up into a frenzy of grief. When seen later, he is in a bar, holding a picture of Kara as he gets ready to rebuild H.Y.D.R.A., vowing revenge on Coulson, May, Daisy, Fitz, Simmons, Hunter, and Bobbi, all while disguising it as him getting "closure" with them.
    • In "Closure," the ninth episode of the third season, Ward nears a breakdown when he discovers that Coulson, Hunter, and Bobbi have abducted his long-lost brother, Thomas. However, upon getting the chance to speak with him on the phone, he is verbally rejected by his brother, who renounces him for killing their parents (despite their abusive nature) and their older brother, Christian. This, combined with him finding out that Thomas had only spoken with him to give Bobbi time to trace his call, results in him going into a full-on breakdown. He begins torturing Simmons (whom he has kidnapped along with Fitz) even harder than before. The breakdown continues all the way up to his death at Coulson's hands in the following episode, "Maveth."

She is finally put down by Coulson when he temporarily dons the Ghost Rider spirit and uses its hellfire to burn her now-human body to a crisp.

It continues to worsen in the midseason finale when he learns of the death of his right-hand woman, [w:c:villains:Sinara|Sinara], and he kills a Kree doctor who outright informs him that there is no way to revive her the way that they had done to humans. It reaches its peak when he ingests a bottle of odium, a drug that strengthens, and then kills, Kree who take it, and uses it to fight and nearly kill Mack. He is stopped when Simmons slips a slug into his ear that blocks his hearing (something that he had previously done to her), and the temporary distraction gives Mack the opportunity to kill Kasius by impaling him through the back with his shotgun axe.
