Angry is an emotion available in The Sims 4. It occurs when a Sim experiences negative interactions with other Sims. This emotion can evolve into very angry and then enraged. Sims that are enraged for too long will die from anger (a cardiac explosion). Being mean makes other Sims angry. It entertains children and teens coming back from school. Seeing their spouse flirting with another can also make a Sim angry.

Toddler needs and Anger
One noticeable thing about toddlers (added on 12 January 2017) is that they tend to become more angry than sad or uncomfortable when their basic motives are not being met. Unless the toddler has the Clingy or Angelic trait, a low (orange or red) hunger, energy, or occasionally fun or social motive will trigger an angry emotion over them. Toddlers who become ravenous (red hunger bar) will turn 'very angry' and the household has 18 consecutive hours (not including sleep time) to feed them otherwise they will be whisked away to safety. They can also become angry if they spend too much time doing certain activities. Toddlers in the Charmer, Fussy, Independent, Inquisitive, Silly, and Wild traits get angry when needs are low. They can also get an enraged moodlet.
Toddlers who age up whilst angry will carry their anger and the moodlet(s) that triggered it over to the first few moments of their childhood life stage.
- When the game first came out, Very Angry was called "Furious".
- There is a cheat to make a sim Angry/Very Angry/Enraged
- Toddlers can get an enraged moodlet, which can be very easy if you use cheats.
