** Played straight later when Bulma, angered that Beerus was causing a rampage in her birthday party, goes up to him and slaps him in the face while demanding him to leave immediately. Yes, Bulma slapped ''the God of Destruction'' in the face.

** Played straight later when Bulma, angered that Beerus was causing a rampage in her birthday party, goes up to him and slaps him in the face while demanding him to leave immediately. Yes, Bulma slapped ''the God of Destruction'' in the face. Of course, he slaps her right back... [[spoiler:which causes Vegeta to lose it and attack him, managing to land the first actual hits on Beerus we see in the series]].

** Tien also has a tendency to do it to Vegeta. Even though it's pointed out many times that Vegeta is many times stronger than him to where he could easily kill him, Tien continues to flip him off.

* In [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/6461902 this rewrite]] of ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', during ComicBook/{{Ultron}}'s attack on Sokovia, after he claims that he will take away people's hope, [[BadassBystander a little]] [[LittleMissBadass girl]] shows she's not having it by throwing a rock at one of his drones. Shortly after, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica later gets one by claiming he will never be able to take hope away from people.
-->'''Ultron:''' [[MesACrowd We]] will take everything from you, starting with hope.
-->'''ComicBook/IronMan:''' How do you propose to do that?
-->'''Ultron:''' ''(shoots a car, causing to explode and sending civilians panicking)'' Simply through my actions.
-->'''Little Girl:''' ''(throws a small rock at the back Ultron's head, causing him to turn around; she simply glares at him defiantly)''
-->'''Ultron:''' ''(tries to take a shot at her, but Captain America jumps in the way and deflects the shot with his shield)''
-->'''Captain America:''' I don't think you understand, Program.
-->'''Ultron:''' ''(DeathGlare)''
-->'''Captain America:''' Yeah, ''Program'', because that's what you are. You aren't capable of taking hope from people. And the more you try, the more you will fail.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', there are a [[OurGodsAreDifferent wide variety of divine beings]] who've been flipped off by mortals at different points in the series or in the backstory. Most of them [[DoNotTauntCthulhu pay for it dearly]], but a few are able to get away with it. To note:
** Hermaeus Mora, the Daedric Prince of [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow Knowledge]] whose preferred form is an EldritchAbomination mass of tentacles, eyes, and claws, is a frequent recipient. To note:
*** Mora was an ArchEnemy to the old [[HornyVikings Nordic]] king [[FounderOfTheKingdom Ysgramor]]. According to Nordic legends, Ysgramor outwitted Mora regularly.
*** The [[NobleSavage Skaal]] of [[GrimUpNorth Solstheim]] consider Mora their enemy, and have managed to keep their secrets safely hidden from him. The plot of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC is revealed to be an elaborate scheme by Mora to get them.
*** In ''Skyrim'' and ''Dragonborn'', the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] has the option of flipping him off several times, even venomously referring to him as a "demon". The only time he even slightly gets back for these slights is when Dragonborn tells him that his help isn't needed to find the last word of Bend Will from his realm, to which he politely explains that you would be searching for all eternity without his aid.
** In the series' Daedric quests handed out by the Princes themselves, it is entirely possible to complete the quest in a way the Prince did not intend. Some reward you for your ingenuity, such as [[EgomaniacHunter Hircine]] rewarding you for making his quest into a TheHunterBecomesTheHunted scenario.

* Kit did this in whale form in ''Literature/YoungWizards''. Most other minor characters in the series have to do a HeroicSacrifice to provide a distraction. All of the main characters in ''Book Of Night With Moon'' attempt or succeed in a HeroicSacrifice just to delay the BigBad, although most of them do get better later. Pitting preteen humans or housecats against the machinations of [[{{Satan}} the eldest, fairest, and fallen]] means any form of victory is going to fall between this and DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu.
** A more classic and slightly subverted version of this trope appears in ''A Wizard Abroad'', when a bard-kitten pisses off the BigBad by mocking it using ''elaborate verse''. Unfortunately, it just makes the Lone Power angry.
*** Which is exactly what allowed the heroes to defeat it. In order to destroy the body the Lone Power was using, the heroes had to throw TheSpearOfDestiny through its Eye of Death. However, the Lone One was keeping its eye shut and just letting the heroes get crushed by the Mooks. The kitten's taunts caused it to attack directly, which allowed the heroes to counterstrike and destroy it.

*''Literature/JOurneyToChaos'': Zettai has one such moment in ''Literature/LoomingShadow'', when she mouths off to the local GrimReaper. "You’re not a god; you’re a worm on a power trip". This gets her soul ripped from her body. [[spoiler: Fortunately, she's a Bladi by this point so she's still conscious enough to put it back in, after an assist from Kallen and her Campione Cannon.]]
