* 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.
