** With the Woodsman, he is at least justified, in that he is one of the few people who can actually match Bigby.

* ComicBook/DoctorStrange foe Dormammu once greatly increased his already immense power to the point of literally pushing the [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]] around. Unfazed, the green goliath threatened Dormammu, but the dark lord merely mocked him and warned that insulting him would be unwise. When the Hulk asked why, Dormammu responded that he had enough power to defeat him without lifting a finger, but Hulk's only response was "''[[TemptingFate That I'd like t'see]]''". In the next panel, Hulk was turned into glass. Hulk has been on the other side of this as well. Taunting him [[YouWontLikeMeWhenImAngry isn't really advisable]], yet [[BullyingADragon/ComicBooks people are dead set on picking fights with him]]. (Loki promptly earned insult to injury, becoming instant [[MemeticMutation Internet meme]] - which proves that even gods should take this advice to heart.)

* In ''Franchise/StarWars Film/ANewHope'', Admiral Motti feels the need to mock Darth Vader (and the Force), who, it must be said, is a telekinetic, [[LaserBlade lightsaber-packing]], 7-foot-tall armored cyborg who has no qualms about killing people. Just to make a point, Vader gives the first ever demonstration of what the Force is capable of by using it to casually strangle the admiral from across the room, stopping only after Tarkin asked.
* In ''Franchise/StarWars Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', Mace Windu seems to gain the upper hand in a duel against Darth Sidious, also known as [[BigBad Supreme Chancellor Palpatine]]. He proceeds to repeatedly inform him he's lost, and that his plans have failed. Palpatine then [[OhCrap unleashes a storm of Force Lightning]] against him, which Windu barely holds off (and even then it seems that Palpatine ''lets'' him do it in order to scar his own face and fake an unprovoked Jedi attack later). After Windu holds off his first attack, Palpatine then suddenly zaps him again and [[DestinationDefenestration throws his electrified corpse out the window]] of his office.

* In the 2010 ''Film/{{Clash of the Titans|2010}}'', the human characters do this a lot. Their plan is apparently to render the gods mortal by ceasing to worship them. They appear to have overlooked the fact that they're still invincible teleporting superbeings, who don't take kindly to humanity's rather laughable attempts to fight them. TheDragon is memorable for taunting Zeus (i.e. the god of thunder) on a cliff during a thunderstorm by ''[[TooDumbToLive raising his sword toward the heavens]]''. That would be a bad idea ''without'' all-powerful beings who get angry at the drop of a hat.

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' has [[Comicbook/{{Apocalypse}} the title villain]], the most powerful mutant ever, even taken for a god in ancient days, who can [[MindOverMatter manipulate things down to its molecules]]. Thus, a bunch of guys who threaten Apocalypse, he uses the stone particles on nearby walls for fatal damage; Caliban pulls a gun on him, he disintegrates the firearm and would do worse if Psylocke didn't come to her boss's aid; [[spoiler:and when Quicksilver uses his SuperSpeed to punch Apocalypse repeatedly, he traps the speedster's foot in the ground and [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu breaks his leg]].]]

** ''Literature/LoomingShadow'': Kallen nearly dies from an avalanche and hypothermia because she challenged Snol, [[PhysicalGod the Ice goddess.]] Later in the same book, Eric is strangled by a GrimReaper for the same reason.
** ''Literature/ManaMutationMenace'': Order himself, one of ThePowersThatBe, is called "namagumi" by two elves. The first one is promptly subdued, depowered and captured by what the elves would call a devil; the second one is indulged just long enough to learn that ResistanceIsFutile, and ''then'' he is subdued and depowered.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' has Cartman, who decided to insult and taunt {{God}}, for not getting a humancentiPad. He promptly gets a [[BoltOfDivineRetribution thunderbolt in his face]]. He got better. By the same token, taunting Cartman is an exceedingly bad idea. Just ask [[Recap/SouthParkS5E4ScottTenormanMustDie Scott Tenorman]].

* In the [[Literature/{{Dragaera}} Khaavren romances]], Morrolan e'Drien sets off to kill the PhysicalGod Tri'na'gore for various reasons, including that god's followers sacking his adopted home town while he was away. After slaughtering a village full of Tri'na'gore worshipers, Morrolan decides to relieve himself on the god's altar, causing him to manifest so quickly and angrily Morrolan barely has time to button up his pants. [[spoiler:[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu This was a bad idea on Tri'na'gore's part.]]]]

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'', Eustace has the ''balls'' to mock the ghost of an Egyptian pharaoh after it used all of it's curses on the Bagges. Guess where that leads him.
