* At the end of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal]]'', [[spoiler:the PhysicalGod Almalexia explains to the PlayerCharacter how she convinced him/her that another god, Sotha Sil had gone insane and tried to attack the capital city of Mournhold, while it was all in fact orchestrated by her so that she could kill the other two gods of the Tribunal, turn the player into an unwilling martyr, and rule as the sole remaining god herself.]]
** [[spoiler: Her]] reasons for doing so seems to be twofold: one, [[spoiler: she used to be the possibly loyal, possibly not wife of Nerevar, and is convinced you are his reincarnation]], and two, [[spoiler: her grip on reality is not the best anymore]].
** In [[spoiler: her]] defence, there's really no damage done by it -- [[spoiler: Almalexia]] had to tip [[spoiler: her]] hand ''anyway'', since the next step of the plan is killing you. Since you'd presumably defend yourself either way, the monologuing doesn't give you any hint about how to stop the evil plan that self-preservation wouldn't already point to.

** [[BigBad Dagoth Ur]], at the end of the main quest, gives you an opportunity to question his plans and motives before the final one-on-one duel. He'll even ask you questions about your motives, and one option is to tell him that you don't think you're TheChosenOne, but you plan to defeat him anyway because it's the right thing to do. [[WorthyOpponent This is the only response which he'll actually praise]].

* Tobi from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' does this CONSTANTLY. He pretty much likes to show up, say something important, and then leave.
** Tobi exploits it at least once: such as when he explains his plan to the Kage because he needs them to know it to be able to make his move.

** Though it should be noted that he tends not to talk about some ''important'' details his plans or very vague therein. For example even though he told at Five Kage summit about what he needs Eight and Nine-Tails to complete his plan but he did not mention that him enough only a small part Tailed Beasts to finish his plan. Also though he mentioned that he was going to use MassHypnosis on the whole world with the help of the moon but he did not say ''how exactly'' he was going to do it. [[spoiler:So when he became Ten-Tails Jinchuuriki and releases WorldTree, he had a large number of shinobi who tried to stop him for feeding this tree to activate Infinite Tsukuyomi.]]

* Becomes a plot point in the third book of ''{{Mistborn}}'', when the BigBad, a certified EldritchAbomination, manifests to the heroine for no other reason than to gloat, but she can't figure out what he's getting out of it. [[spoiler: She then realizes that it's just to satisfy his ego- leading her to the correct conclusion that he's on some level human and fallible]].
