When someone is captured, and then one of the captors goes to visit the captive. The captive says the name of this trope. But usually, if it's shown, then he hasn't come to gloat, and it's just {{Exposition}}. Sometimes he gloats anyway, though. Not limited to captures, either - it can be spoken any time when there are two longtime rivals and one of them suffers a misfortune. Sometimes the rival makes an unethical offer. For example, he may offer to buy the other partner's half of their business (the price is good, but it'll still mean they're out of business), or offer to pay the other partner's debts in exchange for getting the Love Interest, etc.

* Happens in the ''ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' comic. The turtles are being held prison by a crazed whaler who is essentially a Japanese [[Literature/MobyDick Captain Ahab]]. When his first mate visits them in the brig, they start cursing at him and one of them shouts, "Come to gloat?" Subverted in that the whaler has actually come down to free them.

* In ''{{Blackadder}} II'' (episode "Head"), the gang finds out that Lord Farrow (whom Edmund is trying to impersonate) was missing an arm. Edmund sends Percy to speak with Lady Farrow and find out which arm her husband lacked, which results in Percy demanding proof that she's not just a "gloater" pretending to be a relative so she can mock the condemned man.
