* In ''FanFic/{{Horseshoes and Hand Grenades}}'', it's shown that Kengo and Jiro are in some psychotic lo
ve relationship. [[spoiler: One of the side stories ''Tears to Shed'' reveals that Gentaro brainwashed them into this relationship because he's completely bored and doesn't like having emotionless dolls as his loyal subjects.]]

* In ''FanFic/AgesOfShadow'', this is why [[FallenHero Jade]] decides to [[IAmNotLeftHanded hold back]] when actually fighting anyone. She's [[PhysicalGod so powerful]] that she can win any fight easily, and [[VictoryIsBoring that's boring]]. Giving her opponents a HopeSpot and the illusion of hurting her is much more entertaining.

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': [[PsychopathicManchild Parado]]'s main reason for doing anything is either this trope or because it fits into his [[ManipulativeBastard plan]]. Amusingly, he can often blends things together so well that they fit both. Then it gets interesting.

* There're a couple of myths ''invented'' for this purpose in Australia. Because apparently [[AustralianWildlife the real wildlife]] [[EverythingTryingToKillYou wasn't scary enough already]], they decided to tell tourists that the trees were infested with [[YowiesAndBunyipsAndDropBearsOhMy carnivorous koalas]] and the only way to ward them off was to put Vegemite behind your ears. This is one of the only forms of {{troll}}ing that the internet has actually ''dis''couraged.

* In ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'', when Hal tries to recruit Kilowog to travel with him on a new mission. Kilowog, however, has gone back to teaching new Lanterns. He does agree to join in if Hal can beat his best student, Ch'p, a cute looking squirrel like creature, [[BadassAdorable who proceeds to be the ever-loving tar out of Hal without even giving him a chance to fight back.]] Kilowog then admits he was going to join him anyway. He just wanted to see Hal "fight the squirrel."

** Sanguine, the Daedric Prince[[note]]A Daedric Prince is a deity that will personally interact with mortals and the world to further their own agenda. [[/note]] of Debauchery. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', he sends the player on a quest in which his/her task is to cast a spell that removes all clothes from everyone affected in a middle of a prominent nobles' banquet ([[spoiler:and fails to inform him/her that he/she will also become one of its victims]]). In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', after sharing a few drinks with a disguised Sanguine, the character wakes up in a completely diferent city at least a day after, and can set out on a quest to rediscover what it was s/he was doing in the meantime ([[spoiler:which included wedding rings, goats, and temple desecration]]).
** This seems to be the ''modus operandi'' for most of the Daedric Princes (though some mix it with OrangeAndBlueMorality). In ''Oblivion'', Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of Corruption, uses the player to corrupt the soul of an honorable paladin [[FortheEvulz just because he can]]. Meanwhile, Boethia, Prince of Plots, organizes a brutal tournament for the player for no real reason; he's just bored. And if [[MadGod Sheogorath]] is involved, chances are this trope will be invoked. Or not, it depends on his mood, really. When he gives you the Wabbajack, it's probably just because he wants to see what you'll do with it.

** Beerus is probably another example, at least early on. He enjoys destroying inhabited planets, and once decided that a planet's food was decent so he only destroyed half of it.

* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'':
** Beerus is probably another example, at least early on. He enjoys destroying inhabited planets, [[DestroyerDeity Beerus]] actually uses this to ''spare'' planets. Since his biggest two concerns are eating and once decided napping (since his predominant emotion before meeting Goku [[WhoWantsToLiveForever was boredom]]), his usual procedure was to visit a world and demand their finest cuisine and sometimes luxury creature comforts. If he's pleased, he'll depart the planet peacefully, if not, [[EarthShatteringKaboom well...]] Part of his EstablishingCharacterMoment was that he was eating the food of a planet's food was decent best (and terrified) chefs; he liked the food, but deemed it too salty, so he only destroyed a full half of it.the planet and left.

* [[{{Garfield}} Garfield]]. His overriding motive for playing practical jokes, messing with people's heads, and generally just being mean and insensitive is that it's simply too much fun to ''not'' screw with people. Occasionally he'll come up with equally humorous excuses, such as saying that he kicked Odie off the table just to prove to himself that gravity existed.
