* A couple of times in minor ''{{Animorphs}}'' books, but most notably done by Tom's Yeerk in the final two books (narrated from different perspectives):

* The Creator/TadWilliams book ''TheWarOfTheFlowers'' features [[BigBad Lord Hellebore]] explaining to his rivals their imminent destruction through a {{Magitek}} television. Lampshaded when [[EnigmaticMinion the Remover]] complains about him wasting valuable resources to send them the message for no reason other than to gloat.
* Williams also pulls this in ''MemorySorrowAndThorn'' in the part of EvilSorcerer Pryrates, who spends half of the climactic chapter gleefully explaining his plans to the now-helpless protagonists so everyone involved will know exactly how thoroughly they failed to stop him. For bonus style points, he works some of it into the summoning ritual for the [[BigBad Storm King]] -- and true to the trope, said villain promptly cuts off the gloating by demonstrating that EvilIsNotAToy.
* At the climax of ''DarknessVisible'', the [[BigBad traitor]] who Lewis and Marsh have been chasing for weeks gives a BreakingSpeech that gloats over the destruction of London.

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's "Rogues in the House" Nabonidus gloats about his use of ExactWords -- long enough for ConanTheBarbarian to brain him with a stool.

* In the 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.

* 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, he won't give enough specific information on his EvilPlan for Buzz to act on.
-->'''Zurg:''' There's this place, and I'm going to destroy it, in a way they would never expect.
-->'''Buzz:''' Sweet mother of Venus! [[BatDeduction You're going to destroy Capital Planet with a secret attack fleet launched through a trans-spacial warp!]]
-->'''Zurg:''' [[OhCrap No! How did you do that?]]

** In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', [[spoiler: this ends up biting [[BitchInSheepsClothing Dawn Bellwether]] in the butt; Nick and Judy [[EngineeredPublicConfession manage to catch a recording]] of her gloating about how she used Night Howler extract to [[HatePlague make predators go savage]], and how she exploited the ensuing [[FantasticRacism anti-pred hysteria]] to seize power.]]

*** In his first form, Cell takes the time to tell a wounded Piccolo about his origins and goals after attempting to absorb him. It bites him in the ass when Piccolo reveals he was faking the injury to get him to talk and promptly regenerates his arm.

Which Cell should have known Piccolo could do, since ''he has the exact same power, inherited '''from''' Piccolo''.

* When Starscream of ''TransformersAnimated'' wanted to destroy Megatron by using his clones as bomb decoys, he just had to gloat instead of detonating the damn things, giving Megatron and crew time to get clear and let the Autobots save the city. In fact, in this series Starscream is addicted to evil gloating, spending time bragging instead of offing the people he wants to off, like Megatron.

** At one point, [[spoiler: he gets cloned, [[LiteralSplitPersonality each one of which represents a bit of his personality.]] One, Thundercracker, speaks entirely in evil gloating]].
