Another way this could easily backfire is that it goes hand-in-hand with EngineeredPublicConfession. A GenreSavvy hero can use it as an easy way to reveal the Chessmaster or ManipulativeBastard to the world and bring [[ThePlan their plan]] crumbling around them.

** [[spoiler:If you picked B, congratulations, Ark! You just won an ass-kicking from [[WildChild Sapphire]], who used those teeth to cut open the glass and drain all the water [[GenreSavvy while you were gloating]]! Enjoy your dirt nap, sucker!]]

* Sometimes happens in ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}'', usually done by [[VillainProtagonist the title character]] but sometimes by [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Ginko]]. Being both GenreSavvy, they do it ''after'' the plan has been completed, with Diabolik doing it from safe distance.

* In the WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures fic ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'', Jade sometimes lapses into this, but is aware of it, being the DangerouslyGenreSavvy villain that she is, and tries to avoid it most of the time. Finn, Valmont, and some other characters also do this at multiple times throughout the story, and it usually doesn't turn out well for them.

** [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Nicodemus]] subverts this trope by ''not'' [[JustBetweenYouAndMe spilling his plans when he has Harry tied up and at his mercy]], prompting Harry to comment that he must have read the EvilOverlordList.

* In ''Literature/{{Pact}}'', where declaring that you are going to do something and then following through holds metaphysical weight, the laws of the universe actually ''encourage'' gloating to your enemy before you attack them, because it allows you to get a greater benefit out of doing so and gather power to recoup what you lose in the attack. GenreSavvy characters, however, do recognize [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim the value of a bullet.]]

* In one of the last stages of ''VideoGame/JediOutcast'', Fyyar goes off on a monologue, while [[GenreSavvy Kyle]] casually finishes the objective he was performing before he was interrupted.

** He's so GenreSavvy about his EvilGloating that the fact that he'd been monologuing to Elan for an ''hour'' and Elan hadn't escaped yet is what breaks him out of a LotusEaterMachine.

* Endlessly parodied in ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', where [[HarmlessVillain Dr. Drakken]] just can't quit gloating, no matter how many times the GenreSavvy [[TheDragon Shego]] warns him about it. Of course, the otherwise DangerouslyGenreSavvy Shego lost when she was EvilOverlord because she gloated herself, pressing [[ThisLoserIsYou Ron Stoppable's]] BerserkButton.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', [[SmugSnake Mr. Burns]] is known for doing this, (Springfield's organized crime community [[GenreSavvy is relatively less prone to it]]) but an especially [[KickTheDog sickening]] example is in Who Shot Mr. Burns part 1. [[spoiler:At the town hall meeting about Burns' plan to block out the sun, Bart is telling the people at the meeting about how his dog was crippled by Burns' oil drilling operation; Bart shows the town the dog's cast and everything, and Burns walks in at this exact moment and says ''"oh, those wheels are squeaking a bit; perhaps I could sell him a little oil!"'']]

** His ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatam'' counterpart, though more GenreSavvy, isn't immune to this either.

* Zigzagged in the ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' episode "Strange Invasion". Zurg tries to be GenreSavvy by not gloating at all. However, he can't resist, and decides that while he ''will'' gloat, [[JustBetweenYouAndMe he won't give enough specific information]] on his EvilPlan for Buzz to act on. [[NiceJobFixingItVillain It fails]].

* Boondocks character Colnel H Stinkmeaner is quite possibly the king of this trope. Every single word he says is evil gloating. At one point he even dies goes to hell and basically gloats that he is more evil than the Satan to which Satan readily admits

* {{Subverted}} in the ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' story "Might and Power": [[TheDragon Morgan Fairfax]] is about to illustrate the plan to Paperinik to show off his genius, but [[BigBad Grrodon]] cuts him off because "I know it perfectly, my soldiers don't care about it, and PK will soon be too absent to appreciate your genius!"

* ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'' plays this straight, but with a nod to the oft-fatal habit of monologuing, but adds the already infamous twist to the end. [[spoiler:When confronted by Rorschach and Night Owl, Ozymandias coolly explains his master plan to them. The heroes expect to be able to stop him yet, but he bluntly tells them that [[NoNonsenseNemesis he wouldn't be wasting his time talking to them if they still had a chance to stop to stop him]], [[YouAreTooLate his plan was already completed about half-an-hour ago]].]]
