* 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!"''

* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', there's a massive monster in a lake that can easily swallow a person whole. Attempting to taunt it by shooting the water has it emerge in blazingly fast speeds and kill you in one bite. The HD remaster adds an achievement for doing this and it's aptly named "Don't Shoot the Water!"

* [[PhysicalGod Belldandy]] from ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' is a nice girl...but when a jerkass attempted to rape her, she kicked his ass. [[ShockAndAwe With]] [[BoltOfDivineRetribution lightning.]] In the manga, she instead tossed him through a wall, with a tornado.

* ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'': Mentioned in side materials as to why ORT is on the list of Dead Apostle Ancestors (most powerful vampires) despite not being a vampire itself. ORT is the [[EldritchAbomination Ultimate One of Mercury]], and was found sleeping beneath South America. Fearing the sheer power ORT possessed, the 5th Dead Apostle Ancestor decided to try to kill it in its sleep. ORT obliterated the Ancestor, barely stirring from its slumber. The other Ancestors wisely decided they would leave ORT the hell alone, and declared ORT to have taken the former Ancestor's place.

* In ''Film/DraculaUntold'', the Ottomans invoked this when the envoy mentioned taking Vlad's son and 1000 boys for their army. Vlad subsequently kills them all. Played with in that he really was just a subservient vassal that they could boss around with no trouble, but their exorbitant demands do motivate him to become a bloodsucking monster who can wipe out the entire Ottoman army singlehandedly.

* A sidestory of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' follows Gym Leader Falkner as he tries to track [[OlympusMons Ho-Oh]] with the intention to catch it. Using a Rainbow Wing, he finds it atop Mt. Silver where he boasts that he will catch Ho-Oh, ordering his Pidgeot to give him his strongest attack. Ho-Oh not only [[NoSell doesn't even faze with the attack]], but with a single flap sends them plummetting down the mountain, and it's a miracle that Falkner survives, albeit with bruises and first-degree burns all over his body.

** In ''Series/TorchwoodChildrenOfEarth'' Jack gets a harsh lesson from The 456 as to why this is a bad idea. They may not be Eldrich Abominations, but they're certainly SufficientlyAdvancedAliens with the technology to back up their power. When he confronts them in 10 Downing Street they laugh it off and retaliate by flooding the building with a lethal virus that kills in seconds. As an immortal Jack makes it out, but many others die for his arrogance [[spoiler: including [[AnyoneCanDie Ianto]]]].

** In another Treehouse of Horror, Death comes for Bart's soul. Bart leads him on a slapstick chase through the house which ends when Bart uses a toppled chair to trip Death. Cue Death hovering back to his feet and menacing angrily over Bart. Bart's only saved by a well timed Homer appearing to bash Death in the back of the head with a bowling ball.

** A particularly good example with Ajax the Lesser, on the Greek side during the Trojan War. On the way home, he thought it a good idea to mock the gods, leading to a storm that wrecked his ships and left him stranded on a reef in the middle of the sea. Undeterred, he keeps mouthing off, boasting that even the gods couldn't kill him. They then proceeded to demonstrate that yes, yes they could.
