* [[SmugSnake Quattro]] from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' thought it would be a good idea to piss off [[PersonOfMassDestruction Nanoha]] by torturing her daughter and forcing the two of them to fight each other. She responded with a [[SuperMode Blaster 3]] [[WaveMotionGun Divine Buster]] from [[DungeonBypass the other side]] of the Saint's Cradle.

*''Liteature/JourneyToChaos'': It is never a good idea to taunt this world's deities.
**''Literature/AMagesPower'': Siron Esrah reacts with shock when Eric sasses Tasio because it is "the behavior of madmen to speak with such disrespect to the god of Tricksters!"
**''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.



* [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Picard]] learns the hard way that for all his flippancy, Q is still a near-omnipotent being of god-like power. When Q offers to join the Enterprise crew, even going so far as offering to renounce his powers and bring his near-limitless knowledge to their aid, they all but laugh in his face, claiming they are equipped to handle things themselves. With a snap of his fingers Q puts it to the test by hurling them into the path of [[TheAssimilator The Borg]]. Even if Q wasn't exactly trustworthy, it was a supremely arrogant statement on the part of Picard, and one that ended up costing him not only his pride (having to beg Q to save them), but the lives of several crew-members. Not to mention everyone else who the Borg eventually assimilate or kill in the Alpha Quadrant, the latter including Picard.

* ''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 to the ground, [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu with the limb broken upon his release]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'', you can capture enemy agents and taunt them for points (at a small risk of them escaping). If you capture a [[EliteMooks Super Agent]], your Evil Genius ''[[BondVillainStupidity will]]'' [[BondVillainStupidity go out of their way to taunt the idiot who got himself captured]], they ''will'' escape, and assuming they don't kill you right then and there, they ''will'' blow up half your base on their way out.
