* ''OnePiece'' often goes a bit crazy with this trope, considering the number of {{Card Carrying Villain}}s around.

* Used in ''{{Trigun}}'' by [[TheDragon Legato Bluesummers]]. [[BreakThemByTalking Not only does he explain his plan]], he forces it to come to fruition as well. His plan? [[spoiler:Force Vash to kill him because it would drive him to a HeroicBSOD.]]

* In the Eighth movie of ''Manga/DragonBall Z'', Paragus ends up exposing to the Z-fighters that he lured the heroes onto New Planet Vegeta for an elaborate trap that involved Comet Camorie [[ColonyDrop colliding with the planet]], so he could conquer Earth, as well as most of the universe, completely uncontested. However, this backfires when his son Broly ends up becoming enraged enough by Goku's presence to completely break free of Paragus' control and go berserk, and eventually taking revenge on Paragus for attempting to brainwash him. ** Also, during the series, Piccolo [[InvokedTrope invokes this trope]] after Cell drains his arm, asking to be told of his origin and goals before being fully absorbed. Cell obliges, and his narration lasts long enough for Piccolo to finish preparations to regenerate his arm, returning to full strength. * Subverted in ''TigerAndBunny'', as [[spoiler:Albert Maverick]] has a rather good reason to go into detail about his schemes when confronted by Barnaby: [[spoiler:he's buying time for the drugs he slipped into Barnaby's drink to kick in so he can safely edit his memory. [[FakeMemories Again]]]]. * Happens so many times in ''FushigiYuugi'' until they get to one monologue in which Nakago actually reveals that he had anticipated every single thing the heroes did in response to his plan, and then thanks them for it.

* Obviously, [[FistOfTheNorthStar Jagi]] did not read the EvilOverlordList, otherwise he would not have told Kenshiro that he was responsible for turning his best friend evil and screwing up his life.

* In the ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Stoke Me a Clipper", some random Nazi villains try to do this to Ace Rimmer[[note]]([[PhraseCatcher what a guy!]])[[/note]]; one orders the other one to "Take him into the hold, take ten minutes to explain our entire plan to him, and then throw him out of the plane."

* ''Film/{{Memento}}'': People are quite fond of telling Lenny exactly what they're going to do, and exactly how they've manipulated him - but since Lenny has retrograde-amnesia, [[JustifiedTrope they're secure in the knowledge that he invariably forgets everything five minutes later]]. If the film were put in chronological order, what we'd see is a guy getting repeatedly and blatantly screwed over by ''everyone'' he meets, [[spoiler: including himself]]. It does backfire rather spectacularly on one person, though, when [[spoiler: Teddy pisses Lenny off so badly that he steers himself and his murdurous vengeance right towards Teddy.]]

* Almost a description of the trope itself in the ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' {{machinima}} movie ''TalesOfThePast 3'', when [[spoiler: Arthas]] and [[spoiler: Blazer]] speak on top of dragon sculptures :

* Done in the prelude of the Kyoto Arc in ''RurouniKenshin'', when Kenshin was fighting the assassin Akamatsu Arundo. Said assassin said that he would tell Kenshin who sent him - if he died. The two proceed to fight, with Kenshin appearing to be defeated. Keeping his promise, Akamatsu tells Kenshin's corpse [[spoiler: that he and [[KnightOfCerebus Saito Hajime]] were sent by [[TheSociopath Udo Jin-e's]] superiors in order to clean up after Kenshin's previous run-in with Jin-e.]] Oh, Kenshin's not dead.

* Lampshaded in ''YTheLastMan''. [[StrawFeminist Radical misandrist Victoria]], leader of the Daughters of the Amazon, has tracked down Yorick, the last man alive, and is starting a speech about how he's going to pay for the crimes of all his gender when Yorick interrupts her with: "Geez, you Amazons don't know when to just shut up and kill a guy!" * In ''ComicBook/TransformersMaximumDinobots,'' Scorponok keeps Hot Rod alive for the sole purpose of giving one of these to stroke his ego. In fact, when Hot Rod tries to goad Scorponok into giving more information, Scorponok recognizes the attempt and then declares that ''[[GenreBlind he's going to tell Hot Rod his entire plan in great detail anyway]].''

* In ''Film/{{Robocop 1987}}'', OCP executive [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Dick Jones]] tells [=RoboCop=], "I had to kill Bob Morton because he made a mistake. Now, it's time to erase that mistake.", before summoning the ED-209 and a SWAT team to destroy him. What makes this particularly stupid on his part is he knows that [=RoboCop=] is capable of recording everything he says (he even bitches out Boddicker for telling [=RoboCop=] about his involvement in the first place). This bites him back hard in the end, when [=Robocop=] reports to the OCP board of executives [[EngineeredPublicConfession to replay the statement]].

* In ''TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', new villain Ghirahim is very chatty every time you meet him. He [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lampshade on it]] by saying he has an urge to vent, and even goes as far as [[HeKnowsAboutTimedHits giving you pointers on sword fighting]] in your first battle with him.

* Lampshaded in {{Normalman}}, as the Ultra Conservative tells Normalman "I'm going to make you listen to my insidious Master Plan!" (while unrolling a Ko-Ko style "little list".) Because it's in the contract: "On capture by the Party of the First Part, the Party of the Second Part must listen to a) OriginStory or b) Master Plan." However, before we can find out what it is, Captain Everything and Sergeant Fluffy burst in shouting "You aren't going to bore the audience to death with your insipid Master Plan!"
