** Games 9 and 10, at least, have a Provoke ability, which [[DrawAggro makes enemies more likely to attack that person]]. It's already attached to [[JerkAss some characters]], and you can also earn one and put it on a character with strong defense.
** In a non-TauntButton example from both ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' games there is a skill called Provoke that makes enemies more likely to attack them over others. Two characters that come with it are [[JerkAss Shinon]] and [[BoisterousBruiser Skrimir.]] [[PersonalityPowers Fitting.]]

** Each and every character in can do this, obviously existing for the purpose of mocking the enemy you just squashed. The taunts in question vary from Rumble's "Come on, I'm not even holding [[MiniMecha the controls!]]" to Skarner's "[[LargeHam I am ANCIENT. You are nothing but an INSECT to me!]]" and pretty much everything in between.\\\
It gets better. Taunt is an actual status that some champions can inflict. What it does is make the ones who were inflicted with it automatically - and uncontrollably -- autoattack the one who inflicted the status.

* Justified in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' because a large part of the game revolves around [[RuleOfFun dominating your opponent]] and ''nothing'' is more satisfying than taunting over a nemesis' corpse. Certain weapon taunts also have the ability to [[LethalJokeWeapon inflict massive amounts of damage]] or outright [[ChunkySalsaRule destroy]] players careless enough to stand still.\\\
Plus the fact that some classes have voice taunts that auto-fire after a domination (or a revenge PAST a domination) that get downright ''personal'', in-universe. ''"May I borrow your earpiece? *mocking voice* This is Scout! Rainbows make me cry!"''

** Teemo (and, to a lesser extent champions like Twitch and [[CombatMedic Soraka]]) is [[MemeticMutation memetically]] considered to have this going ''all the time''. His 'Global Taunt' hidden [=passive/psychological=] warfare tactic baits enemies into becoming LeeroyJenkins in an attempt to kill him, leaving them open to his mushroom traps and ambushes, or getting them to leave some important objective unguarded.

* The use of skirmishers in traditional (i.e. formation-based) warfare followed this trope: Skirmishers would range in front of an army in a scattered formation and pelt enemy melee infantry informations with javelins, arrows, sling stones and other light missiles. This would cause undisciplined enemies to break formation and charge the skirmishers, who would feign retreat back to their own lines where friendly infantry could deal with the enemies who broke formation.

** There's also the Yuuzhan Vong Hunter droids in ''Literature/NewJediOrder'', who are programmed to yell "We are the machines! We are greater than the Yuuzhan Vong!" in their language. This is such heresy to the Vong that they have a tendency to charge blindly at the droids, which, of course, goes poorly for them.
** Grand Admiral Pellaeon ''also'' uses this against the Vong, repeatedly taunting their fleet commander, Vorrik.

** Also in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, taunting enemies during lightsaber combat is a technique of its own, called Dun Moch. It is often used by darksiders trying to rouse anger in an opposing Jedi.

** Vegetto, the fusion of Goku and Vegeta, is ''even worse.'' Since he's so [[GameBreaker Game-breakingly-powerful]] that Buu isn't capable of even scratching him, he doesn't even put any effort into fighting Buu; just humiliating him. It turns out though, that he was goading Buu into attempting to absorbing him so he could free all the other fights Buu had consumed.

* ''TabletopGame/SavageWorlds'' has a Taunt skill that can be used in combat to put an opponent at a disadvantage (Intimidation can be used similarly). In ''TabletopGame/Deadlands'' this has a special significant in [[ShowdownAtHighNoon duels]], as each gunslinger tries to goad the other (by either taunting or intimidation) into reaching for their gun first, which not only gives them a penalty to their shooting roll but also puts them on the wrong side of the law.
