* [[SmugSnake Quattro]] from ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' did this twice. The first time, she had Lutecia relay a message to Vita about [[MyGreatestFailure her greatest failure]] safe right as Deici was about to blow up a helicopter with Vice, Shamal and Vivio on board. The second time she used a hologram to try and stroke Vivio's cheek in front of [[MamaBear Nanoha]]. The second time [[DoNotTauntCthulhu did not]] [[DungeonBypass work out]] [[WaveMotionGun for her]].

** Well, that, and Lily points out that he broke his model of the old (TNG Series era) Enterprise during his rant.
* ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'' is the trope namer (though the French soldiers don't seem to have much ulterior motive other than to [[{{Troll}} amuse themselves]] at the expense of the the silly kniggits).

* ''Film/{{Thor}}'': After Thor provokes war with the Frost Giants, Loki negotiates a way out. As they leave, a ''very'' large Frost Giant says to Thor, "Run away little princess". Immediately lampshaded by Loki, who knows exactly what's coming: "[[ThisIsGonnaSuck Damn]]".

* Used A LOT in ''RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'' to varying amounts of success. One of the more famous examples has Zhuge Liang, wanting to bring his rival, Sima Yi, out of his defensive position, sends him a dress and women's make up with a note saying "If you are unable to fufill your duties as a man, dress in this outfit and act like a woman instead."
** This example is also notable in that it is the rare instance where Zhuge Liang ''failed''. Sima Yi just laughed and put on the outfit anyway, spoiling Zhuge Liang's plan

* Will Smith as Deadshot appears to be doing this to El Diablo in the second trailer to Film/SuicideSquad. After seeing just what El Diablo ''can'' do, he immediately apologizes for fear of being on the wrong end of those powers, which is PlayedForLaughs.
--> '''Deadshot''': I was just tryin' to get you there. No hard feelings, right? We good?

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'':
** In "Family", Jean-Luc Picard is successfully taunted by his estranged elder brother, Robert. Robert has complex reasons for disliking Jean-Luc, including envy and a clash of values, but when his constant needling finally provokes a fistfight, he reveals that he partly did it for Jean-Luc's own good: He needed the catharsis since he was freshly dealing with the trauma of having been assimilated by the Borg.
** In "Samaritan Snare", Picard recounts that the reason he has an artificial heart is because he was taunted into a bar fight just after he graduated the academy. Much later, "Tapestry" explored the incident further, with Q apparently giving him the chance to do it over in the midst of a near-death experience. The crucial difference is that while the original young Picard allowed the taunting of the Nausicaans to start a melee, the mature Picard chose to keep his friends and himself out of danger. Q then [[ItsAWonderfulPlot forwards]] him to the "present day" [[ForWantOfANail following from that choice]], where Picard has been unnotable and never been promoted past lieutenant. Picard [[NecessaryFail takes the point]].

* Used several times in ''ChronoCrusade'', particularly since [[BewareTheNiceOnes Chrono has]] [[UnstoppableRage a bad temper]] [[BerserkButton when provoked]]. Aion uses it successfully against him in at least one battle. [[spoiler:Remington]] uses it against Chrono in a later battle [[SecretTestOfCharacter to teach Chrono to "control his rage"]]. Rosette also uses it against Rizelle in the anime version, taunting her about her unrequited love for Aion.

* In ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'' Souma angers one of the Elite Ten, a second year named Eizan, who is basically the cooking equivalent of a crime lord. He tries to set Souma up for humiliation during the following tournament, but not only does he fail, Souma doesn't even realize he was being targeted. Later, he tries again when [[spoiler:the directorship of the school changes hands]] and tries to crush Souma's spirits. First he tries to shut down Souma's dorm and make it clear that while Souma can try to challenge him, the contest will be so heavily rigged that the judges won't even taste the food. Souma challenges him anyway. He tries more intimidation tactics to make Souma despair, including sending his thugs to evacuate the Polar Star dorm and begin the destruction immediately, but Souma keeps on going as though he doesn't notice. Frustrated at his inability to make Souma submit, he finally attempts to actually beat him in cooking. Unfortunately for him, he hadn't actually prepared for the match at all and promptly loses despite being the better cook. Afterward, Souma makes it pretty clear that he actually was worried but knew the only way to win was to keep pissing off his opponent until he sabotaged himself. Eizan is a control freak, so just kicking Souma out wasn't enough to recover his pride, so Souma exploited this vulnerability.

* A common strategy for Joseph Joestar in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure''. In his fight with BloodKnight Wham, he actually gets Wham to ''not'' kill him by taunting him that he'd be strong enough to beat Wham if given one month.

** Backfires on Rohan Kishibe when he attempts it against Josuke Higashikata. Josuke needs to keep his eyes closed to avoid the effects of Rohan's Stand, Heaven's Door. Rohan tries to enrage Josuke by pressing Josuke's BerserkButton of insulting his hair. While this does succeed in getting Josuke to open his eyes, it ''also'' succeeds at sending Josuke into a literal blind rage, so he ''still'' doesn't see the trigger that Rohan needed him to. As a result, Heaven's Door can't activate and Rohan gets an even harder beatdown than he would have otherwise for his trouble.

* Weaponized by Wulfrik the Wanderer in ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy''. "Cursed" by the gods with immortality and a gift of tongues, now he has to wander the world fighting the strongest champions the enemy has to offer, and does so by hurling the crudest insults he can think of at them, and Chaos magic not only translates it into their tongue but makes them take the insult so badly they can't refuse the challenge. And since Wulfrik is a nine-foot-tall HornyViking straight from the best Music/HeavyMetal album cover, said taunts get very crude indeed, such as this one, delivered to a dwarf king:
--> "Face me if you dare, stunted whelp, or do you lack even an Elven maid's courage? I thought the Sons of Grungni were great warriors, but perhaps you are no true Dwarf. Indeed, maybe you are instead some breed of bearded goblin, though in truth, I have seen a finer beard on a Troll's back-side."

* In addition to the taunting-like moves in the video games (see that section), there are characters that are known to taunt others in the anime version of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''. The most frequent taunter is Ash's [=Treecko/Grovyle/Sceptile=] in the ''Advanced Generation'' era. In his earliest appearance, [=AG007=], he smacked his rear at Team Rocket's Cacnea, angering it into shooting his Pin Missile at the Team Rocket balloon and sending them blasting off.
