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

* In the ''Theatre/{{Mrs Hawking}}'' play series:
**In part one: ''[[https://vimeo.com/160544306 Mrs. Hawking]]'', Lord Brockton starts to, though his monologue is cut short.
** It devolves into a ThisCannotBe when the tides turn.
**[[spoiler:Mrs. Frost]] at the end of ''Gilded Cages''. To an epic extent.

Added DiffLines:

* In the third season finale of ''PersonOfInterest,'' [[spoiler:Greer spends a minute or so gloating to Collier about how he'd manipulated all of Vigilance. He still kills Collier, accomplishing the goal of letting the gloat target die in despair, but that gloat ''does'' give Reese enough time to save Finch.]]

* In both the anime and manga versions of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', the 9th Espada, Aaroniero Arruruerie, fights Rukia, breaks her sword, and skewers her with his trident. He ''pulls her closer'' so that he can gloat effectively. This is when Rukia pulls out her third ''Shikai'' which reforms her sword ''through Aaroniero's head'' instantly killing him. Sure, Rukia's sword reforming and her subsequent rescuing are major {{Deus Ex Machina}}s, but in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', we lost count long ago anyway.
** And that's not even going into Sosuke Aizen, who just loves to listen to himself talk, going by the fact that he has on a few occasions taken the time to fill the good guys in on every little detail regarding exactly ''how'' bad he's screwed them over. During his final battle with Aizen in the {{Deicide}} arc, it got so bad that Ichigo got sick of it and flat out stated as such while interrupting one of the latter's monologues.
** To be fair to his villainous willpower, he will wait years for the opportunity for these gloatings. His first monologue was stored up over well over a hundred years of playing the nice guy. Of course, he did get to let it out sometimes, so long as he was sure whoever it was was about to die. Letting Urahara and Shinji and company get away alive bit him hard down the road.
** In the [[spoiler:Fullbring]] arc, [[spoiler:Giriko]] breaks into this when DrunkWithPower...which gets him [[spoiler:killed by Kenpachi.]]
* Quattro, SmugSnake that she is, did some big time gloating as she forced the main character of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' to fight against [[spoiler: her daughter]]. In retrospect, [[OhCrap this probably wasn't]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill a very good idea]].
** She probably got this from [[MadScientist Jail himself]], since he did gloat about the power of his Combat Cyborg and Gadget Drone technology. In Jail's case it is justified, as he has already proven the might of his creations by [[spoiler: [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs successfully destroying Riot Force 6 HQ and crippling the TSAB Ground Forces HQ]]]] and simply felt rubbing his victory to everyone's faces, topping it off with an EvilLaugh.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'': In "Return to New York, Part 3," Stockman takes the time to gloat that every component of his cyborg armor has its own backup power source. Donnie quickly realizes that this includes the ArmCannon the Turtles sliced off previously, and levels it at Stockman, who has just enough time to go OhCrap and try to escape before he's blasted out the window.

* Averted hilariously in episode 5 of the first season of ''Anime/BirdytheMighty: Decode'', in which Birdy punches Kinzel's mecha, the [[MeaningfulName Amubis 777]] (yes, like Anubis) in the middle of his explanation of why it is so awesome and will own her (to which he responds, "You oughta listen until I'm finished!").

* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' features [[ThoseWackyNazis a Nazi]] bursting into a room occupied by the series' resident AxCrazy ActionGirl Revy. The Nazi then starts yammering on at length about his [[BlingBlingBang Luger]] and how he's the only one capable of "taming it". What he fails to notice as he flaps his trap is [[FailedASpotCheck Revy calmly reloading in front of him]]. By the time he's ready to fire, Revy shoots him in the gut.
--> '''Revy:''' ''*BANG*'' [[LampshadeHanging Shut the fuck up. Can't you see I wasn't even listening? I mean were ya tryin' to sell me the damn gun or what]]?

-->'''Frozone:''' ''He starts monologuing!'' He starts, like, this prepared speech about how ''feeble I am, compared to him!'' How ''inevitable my defeat is!'' How the [[PunctuatedForEmphasis World! Will soon! Be his]]!

** However, this later leads to Syndrome's downfall as he [[spoiler: vows to get Mr. Incredible's baby son Jack-Jack someday, only for Mr. Incredible to throw his car at him, causing Syndrome to get his cape caught in the turbines, killing him in a huge explosion]].
