Heroic Overview
Person having a breakdown
Heroic Breakdown (better known as Heroic BSOD (Blue Screen of Death)) is the opposite of the Villainous Breakdown and another form of Releasing Stress. Though can be comparable with releasing stress as both cases having similar causes, (upset about something, things don't go in his/her way, has a big fight that goes over the edge, or when it seems like all hope is lost), they expresses their stress in more excessive manner.

Notable symtomps of the Heroic Breakdown are:

  • Turning white when becoming pale.
  • Shocked to the point of temporary mentally shutting down like catatonic person.
  • Attacking their enemies in blind fury that they even had little to no concern about their allies that they could harm by accident.
  • Runaway from everyone out of stressed by problems that caused their breakdown that forcing their allies/closest friend or family/love interest to track him/her down for comforting him/her.
  • Excessively expressing his/her anger to the point where they ended up causing damages that sometimes unintentional.

Outcome of the breakdown in shortest term would be depressed or less eager to do anything that they had to do. In the longer term on the other hand, was suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or worse, prone to suffer Heel-Face turned.

(Jane gasps) Tinkerbell? (Jane watches as Hook and his crew carry Peter and the Lost Boys away) No, Peter! I-I'll save you Peter! I'll save you! (Captain Hook: My dear, NO ONE CAN SAVE HIM NOW!! [laughs maniacally]) (Jane is left all alone) Tinkerbell! (Runs off; fade to Hangman's Tree where Tinkerbell is getting weaker than ever and turning very pale; Jane sprints inside) Tinkerbell! Tink!

I'm so sorry. (Sobs and buries her head in her arms. As Jane mourns, pixie light shines through her fingers; Tinkerbell opens her eyes! She's alive!

(Lumiere: Master, I could be wrong, but that may not be the best way to win the girl's affections.) (Cogsworth: Please, attempt to be a gentleman.) But she is being so difficult! (Mrs. Potts: Gently, gently.) (Beast begins to talk to Belle gently.) Will you come down to dinner? (Belle: No!) (Beast, points at the door.) Hm? (Cogsworth: Suave, genteel.) (Beast begins to be suave.) It would give me great pleasure...(Then he begins to control his anger.)...if you would join me for dinner. (Cogsworth: Uh, we say please.) Please? (Belle: No, thank you!)

(starts going crazy; Looks at the menu and sees "squeak" as an item for everything) Huh? I didn't write that! (keeps thinking and hearing the squeaks. Thinking that SpongeBob was saying "Could the world's greatest fry cook do this" & repeating saying "AND THIS AND THIS...") STOP IT!!! STOOOP IIIITTTT!!! D-D-Don't ya hear it?! Yes, I did it! I did it! 'I TOOK THE BOOTS!!!!' They're here, under the floorboards!!! (sobbing) Oh, please! Make it stop! IT'S THE SQUEAKIN' OF THE HIDEOUS BOOTS!! (wailing) I'm sorry, but I can't take the infernal squeaking no more!

Uh... So, this military force of a planet... that has an atmosphere made out of radiation... has never had an explosion? [Beat] This race is more gun-happy than Charlton Heston's shooting gallery, and yet there's NEVER BEEN AN EXPLOSION ON THIS PLANET?! THEY COULD LOOK AT A KITTEN AND SOMEHOW THEY'D MAKE IT BLOW UP! THESE GUYS ARE CRAZY! THERE'S NEVER BEEN AN EXPLOS— YOU EXPECT ME TO BELIEVE THAT?! THIS IS STUPID! THIS IS STUPID!

I always hoped you'd see it some day, but I thought I'd be there with you. Being taken there as a prisoner, I suppose it was something of a traumatic experience. It's just, Steven, I'm sure you have a lot of questions you'd like answers to, like about the Diamonds, for instance. There are things that are impossible for me to explain. But I want to. I -- Steven, I --) (Pearl covers her mouth twice.) Connie hates me! (Pearl: What?) (Greg, Garnet and Amethyst come outside to see what's going on.) (Greg Universe: We weren't listening.) (Garnet: Also continue, Steven.) I'm not upset about what happened on Homeworld although, yeah, a lot of that was really messed up. But my relationship with Connie is even more messed up. I left her behind to go to Homeworld after promising we'd face everything together. I'm sure I really hurt her. I've been calling and texting her for a week, but she hasn't responded once.
