* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': During the Future Trunks Saga, Zamasu seizes virtually every opportunity to go off on AGodAmI speeches and {{Motive Rant}}s, constantly taking the time to remind Goku and the Z-Fighters of his belief that he's a "true God" and how there's nothing they can do to stop them. Eventually, he admits that he doesn't actually care if anyone listens to his gloating; he does it simply to [[TheFightingNarcissist hear himself talk]].

* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'': During the Fairy Dance arc, Sugou brags to Asuna about his belief that Kirito is too scared to enter ALO to save her in an effort to demoralize her. It backfires; Asuna ''knows'' that Kirito is more than strong enough to enter ALO if there's any chance of saving her, and knowing that he's still alive helps her HeroicResolve.
** Sugou does it a second time after Kirito defeats him in ALO and proceeds to attack him in real life in revenge. When Kirito tells him he's finished and should just turn himself in, Sugou smugly brushes him off, stating that countless organizations would want his work and shelter him from the law. After Kirito overpowers him and leaves him unconscious in the parking lot, Sugou's gloating in that regard is proven wrong; he's arrested and incarcerated for his crimes.

** In the Season 6 episode "Older and Far Away," Dawn has unwittingly made a wish to Halfrek, one of Anya's friends from during her time as a [[JackassGenie vengeance demon]], resulting in everyone who came to Buffy's birthday party, and anyone else who entered the Summers house, being mystically trapped within said house. At the end of the episode, she pops into the house to gloat about how they'll be trapped forever and how they deserve it for not paying attention to Dawn's pain and abandonment issues... but when she tries to dramatically teleport out, it turns out [[HoistByHisOwnPetard she's fallen victim to her own curse]], forcing her to break the spell so she can leave, much to her annoyance.

* The Colorless King does this in the murder video in ''Anime/{{K}}'' - one of the [[GenreSavvy many indicators]] that the case isn't as simple as it looks, and that Shiro, the kid in the video committing the crime, might not be the real killer.
--> '''Shiro:''' Think about it. Why would I commit a crime and then purposefully identify myself in the video?\\
'''Kuroh:''' [[GenreBlind Because you're evil and you want everyone to know it.]]\\
'''Shiro:''' If that's true, then I must be a pretty dumb villain.

* In ''Film/ThePrincessBride'', Count Rugen (the Six Fingered Man) briefly has Inigo at his mercy after hitting Inigo with a throwing dagger.
-->'''Rugen:''' You must be that little Spanish brat [[ScarsAreForever I taught a lesson to all those years ago]]. You've been chasing me your whole life only to fail ''now''? I think that's the worst thing I've ever heard. *{{beat}}* How marvelous.
* In ''Film/GoldenEye'', following an intense fist fight, Trevelyan is armed, Film/JamesBond is at gunpoint... and he stops to breathe and then say "You know, James? I was always better" before shooting - and he misses, as Bond kicks a trapdoor and goes down a staircase.
