* Vegeta tries to get Krillin to mortally wound him during the battle against Frieza in ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' in a last-ditch attempt to raise his power (since as a Saiyan, Vegeta receives a power boost from recovering from the brink of death and one of their allies has healing abilities). Krillin's reluctance, however, is more from paralyzing fear ([[NiceGuy and the fear of ''actually'' hurting]]) of Vegeta than anything else. (It may be worth mentioning that Krillin would never have been able to hurt Vegeta normally. Canonically, in DBZ, you actually need to concentrate to be MadeOfIron.)

** Actually, if you listen very closely, and watch his lips, when he turns around, he ''very'' quietly mutters the word "Fuck," to himself. It's so hard to notice that [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar the censors apparently didn't hear it.]]

* ''SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}'' spent the better part of an issue trying to get {{Wolverine}} to stab him. When Wolverine ignores him, he {{Shoryuken}}'d Kitty Pryde to get him to do it.
* The mutant Multiple Man actually needs to be attacked to activate his powers. So he either has to provoke someone, or outright beg to be attacked.
** Well, he needs to be hit, but the trigger is sufficiently sensitive that punching his own hand would do it. He only actually needs someone else to punch him if he is very tightly restrained. Of course, sometimes he might let someone hit him for the intimidation factor or for laughs.

* One issue of ''Webcomic/{{Nodwick}}'' opens with Yeagar trying to get Nodwick to whack him with a mallet. Nodwick only hesitates to confirm that Yeagar is sober and won't be getting back at him for it later, but that's still enough time for Piffany to stumble on them and chastise Nodwick for violence. Yeagar responds to the confusion by grabbing the mallet, and clubbing himself. The reason? So he can show off his new favorite swear word, "Krutz!"

After Ghost Dog initially refuses, Louie just demands it again and louder so Ghost Dog shoots Louie in the shoulder, then justifies it after the fact by saying that Louie will now have a cover story and can claim that Ghost Dog attacked him.

** Note that the ''Rocky'' fight '''is''' based on a real bout. UsefulNotes/MuhammadAli suspected that stamina was a weakness for George Foreman, so in their 1974 bout Ali taunted Foreman, blocked most of Foreman's blows, then taunted him some more. [[MyDefenseNeedNotProtectMeForever Foreman tired quickly]], and Ali knocked Big George out for the only time in Foreman's career. Similarly, Rocky is trying to defend against all of Clubber's big punches, although just like with Ali-Foreman, some get through.

* When Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin was named Co-General Manager of ''Wrestling/WWERaw'' in 2003, he wasn't allowed to attack anyone unless physically provoked. He would invoke this trope but it didn't work all the time.
** Most famously was the night he repeatedly yelled at Scott Steiner to hit him. When Steiner finally did hit him, Austin smiled for a long time before he then beat up Steiner. The segment is better remembered for its finish. After beating up Steiner, Austin invited Stacy Keibler (Steiner's now-former manager) to have a beer with him. Stacy refused as she didn't like the taste of beer. For this, Austin then gave her a Stone Cold Stunner.

He does hit her, but immediately afterwards says it was undeserved and requests Signum hit him back to make it fair. She does.

** Though he does not explicitly request Goku to strike him, Tien grants Goku several minutes of uninterrupted punching during their first match in the World's Martial Arts Tournament. This is "payback" for Chiatzou paralyzing Goku earlier in the match against Tien's wishes allowing him to get in some powerful blows while Goku was unable to defend himself.
