[[folder:Sports]]
* A common tactic in various sports when one player attempts to provoke another one into doing something stupid. There tends to be a fine line, because the taunting itself can get penalized if it's too blatant or caught. A famous example of the above tactic gone somewhat wrong was made during the final match of the 2006 [[UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup FIFA World Cup]]. Italian player Marco Materazzi taunted his French counterpart Zinedine Zidane by insulting Zidane's sister. While it ''did'' work (Zidane got a red card), the ''reason'' it worked was that Zidane gave Materazzi a headbutt to the chest.
* Also on sports, whenever the audience has a reason to insult the opposing team they will chant to unsettle them. Even more to gloat once things are headed towards a victory (the StandardSnippet is "Na na, na na na naaa, hey hey hey, GOODBYE.") In hockey, the home crowd also likes to chant the visiting goaltender's name once he concedes a goal (or specially if he gives in ''[[CurbStompBattle many]]'').

* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'':
** This could be said to be something that Apollo Justice adds to the series. While Phoenix provokes his foes into a VillainousBreakdown by finding the flaws in their story; Apollo can use his special power to identify his foes' weakness like this.
** And throughout the whole ''Ace Attorney'' series, any time the villain of the day seems to have the upper hand, they will mercilessly taunt the player character, thinking they have them completely beat. The character then either goes into a panic since they're backed into a corner, or they go silent or taunt right back when they see a flaw from the bad guy they can exploit.

Two characters also have counter-taunts: Joseph's entail him employing his famous trick of [[HeyThatsMyLine telling his opponents what they will say next before they say it]], reducing their meter and buffing his attack power; while Josuke's has his opponents ''taunt him'', or rather, [[BerserkButton his hair]], granting him [[ImmuneToFlinching immunity to flinching]] and buffed attack power at the cost of forcing him to continuously march towards his opponent.



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.

* VideoGame/MaxPayne employs this in the first game after storming an illegal arms shipment organized by mob boss Punchinello at the behest of Vladimir Lem - Payne's doing it for the revenge factor. After securing the shipment, Max takes a call from Punchinello meant for the captain and lets him know he's there and needles him in order to piss him off.
--> '''Max, narrating:''' Pissing Punchinello off was a dangerous game. But when people get mad, they make mistakes. I should know. That's where I wanted Punchinello, mad enough to trip over his own feet, preferably into a grave.

* For VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance, in the Jetstream Sam DLC, Sam can taunt his enemies. It makes them hit harder, but it also makes them weaker to your attacks. A skilled player can use this to destroy Armstrong at the end of the DLC!

* Three moves in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': "Taunt", which locks the opponent into only using attack moves; "Torment" (the original Japanese name translates to "Impugn"), which impels the victim to never use the same move twice in a row; and "Swagger", which raises the target's Attack by two stages and also induces [[StandardStatusEffects Confusion]].

* ''{{Resonance of Fate}}'' is rife with taunting and banter, and often trade quips with each other and the enemy mid-battle. Particularly with boss battles; the enemy-if humanoid/with the ability to speak- and your three protagonists will taunt each other equally. This is especially true with Hero Actions, as you're not encouraged to just stand and shoot. The funny part is the protagonists do not just taunt the 'bad guys'. They are not above throwing zingers at each other, particularly-but not exclusively- if you accidentally catch someone in friendly fire (all too easy to do), screw up a Hero Action, or otherwise blow it.

* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'':
** This could be said to be something that Apollo Justice adds to the series. While Phoenix provokes his foes into a VillainousBreakdown by finding the flaws in their story; Apollo can use his special power to identify his foes' weakness like this.
** And throughout the whole ''Ace Attorney'' series, any time the villain of the day seems to have the upper hand, they will mercilessly taunt the player character, thinking they have them completely beat. The character then either goes into a panic since they're backed into a corner, or they go silent or taunt right back when they see a flaw from the bad guy they can exploit.
** This trope is also Prosecutor Simon Blackquill's primary method of controlling the courtroom in ''Dual Destinies''. [[spoiler:He also used it while searching for the Phantom during his time in jail. 'Just try to retrieve your identity, you bloody butcher!']]
** The more comedic version that runs the same circles as the trope namer is the petty and childish "NoYou"-type fights between the prosecution and defence in the first half of the last case.
* Tohsaka in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' irritates Caster into not noticing that she and Shirou have circled her and Kuzuki to make for more favorable fights. Kuzuki notices but [[ExtremeDoorMat doesn't do anything about it.]]

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''; during the Vytal Festival Tournament, Weiss and Yang are set up against two members of Team FNKI from Atlas. Neon Katt, a cat faunus dressed like she just got back from a rave/roller derby, spends much of the fight calling Yang [[YouAreFat overweight]] to throw off her accuracy.

** Vaarsuvius does this to outsmart Nale. Elan's EvilTwin Nale briefly took Elan's place in the party, until Elan caught back up to them and V walked in on the two fighting. Nale tried to use the KillUsBoth trick to get out the SpotTheImpostor situation, which frustrated Elan into proclaiming what a DeadHorseTrope that particular trick is. V agreed, and pretty much said that such a dumb trick is exactly the sort of thing Nale would do. Nale (who is guilty of both being a SmugSnake and having a serious SmallNameBigEgo problem) immediately blew his cover by trying to defend his plan, which earned him [[ShockAndAwe a magical bolt of lightning]] in the face from V.
** Later V falls victim to it him/her-self when another customer in a magic shop intentionally provokes him/her. It turns out to merely be an elaborate ploy to have V identify him/her-self so that other "customer" could serve V with divorce papers.

Not only does the magic ricochet all over the place, but Twilight attacks the pony that the villain has been masquerading as. However, this ends up backfiring, as Twilight breaks open an exit and is able to free both herself and the other pony.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'': While he doesn't often use it against his enemies, Michelangelo, in true sibling fashion, knows that taunting is a hugely effective weapon against Raphael, and will always use it when fighting him. This tactic backfires horribly once when Mikey makes Raphael so angry he nearly caves his head in with a blunt instrument. Naturally Raph is horrified at his action and spends the episode learning AnAesop about self-control.

* A common tactic in various sports when one player attempts to provoke another one into doing something stupid. There tends to be a fine line, because the taunting itself can get penalized if it's too blatant or caught.\\\
A famous example of the above tactic gone somewhat wrong was made during the final match of the 2006 [[UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup FIFA World Cup]]. Italian player Marco Materazzi taunted his French counterpart Zinedine Zidane by insulting Zidane's sister. While it ''did'' work (Zidane got a red card), the ''reason'' it worked was that Zidane gave Materazzi a headbutt to the chest.
* Also on sports, whenever the audience has a reason to insult the opposing team they will chant to unsettle them. Even more to gloat once things are headed towards a victory (the StandardSnippet is "Na na, na na na naaa, hey hey hey, GOODBYE.") In hockey, the home crowd also likes to chant the visiting goaltender's name once he concedes a goal (or specially if he gives in ''[[CurbStompBattle many]]'').

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', this is a game mechanic in conversations. The player can choose to Taunt an NPC, which lowers their disposition and may cause them to attack, and is based on the player's Speehcraft skill.

** Molag Bal, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[TheCorrupter Domination and Corruption]], utilizes this. Almost every sentence out of his mouth is a taunt to remind a person how insignificant they are compared to him. He ''is'' the Lord of Domination, after all, rather justifying it.
