* ''Film/DeathNote2017'': When Light discovers that Ryuk killed numerous FBI agents, he threatens to write the demon's name in the Death Note. Ryuk just responds that he can go ahead and try, but warns Light that nobody has ever been able to get in more than two letters in time (though his name is ''already'' in the book, so who knows what that means).
-->''Do not trust Ryuk. He's not your pet, he's not your friend.''

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is understandably inadvisable when dealing with the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]]. A quick death, [[FateWorseThanDeath or worse]], often follows. In particular, Hermaeus Mora, the Daedric Prince of [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow Knowledge]], forgoes [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith taking a humanoid form when dealing with mortals]], preferring a true EldritchAbomination mass of eyes, tentacles, and claws form that would make Lovecraft proud. As [[AffablyEvil affable and polite]] as Mora may come across, he can flip the switch to extreme violent anger in an instant if taunted. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC, [[spoiler:[[BigBad Miraak]]]] finds this out [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice the hard way]].

** Nocturnal is the Daedric Prince of [[TheSacredDarkness Darkness and the Night]], and is also associated with Thieves and Luck. Despite this, thieves love stealing things ''[[TooDumbToLive from]]'' Nocturnal. While they may succeed in acquiring the item they are attempting to steal (the Gray Cowl, the Eye of Nocturnal, the SkeletonKey) they always pay for it in the end, usually by Nocturnal cursing the item they stole or having her servants hunt down the offender.

* Hysterically done to Bilbo Baggins in ''Literature/TheHobbit''. Bilbo makes this mistake when talking to Smaug. While Smaug can't see him since he's invisible, he can smell Bilbo, as well as hear him breathing, so he's got a good rough idea of where the little hobbit is. Smaug also has [[BreathWeapon fire breath]]. Bilbo gets somewhat burned for taunting the dragon, and in a rare example of this trope where the ''person'' who did the taunting figures out it's a bad idea, is prompted into saying ''"Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo [[YouFool you fool]]!"''

* It's generally a very, ''very'' bad idea to mock the deities of [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]], even if you are also a deity or part-deity. The Greek gods could be very petty and very cruel to those who offended them. (For the most part, [[JerkassGods they were petty and cruel to everybody,]] but mouthing off did earn you extra attention.)

* Played with in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''. Knight-Commander Meredith clearly sees herself as TheHero and despite her mandate to track down Apostates, she allows Mage Hawke to continue roaming freely around Kirkwall. It's heavily implied that Meredith doesn't want a riot for arresting the people's [[TheChampion Champion]], not to mention the fact that even if she managed to get Mage!Hawke in chains, she'd likely lose ''hundreds'' of Templars during the attempt. Anders and Merril are likewise protected due to their association with Hawke, regardless of Hawke's class. When Meredith [[FinalBoss finally]] ''[[FinalBoss does]]'' go after Mage!Hawke, it ends... ''poorly'' for her.
