* Played straight and subverted in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens''. The main villain Gallaxhar does decide to exposit why he essentially committed genocide against his own people and at the same time wanted to repopulate the Earth with clones of him, but he was telling her while he was hooked up to the cloning machine, which had him being sporadically muted when the machine lowers down, causing a lot of his speech to be skipped over and thus his full reasons being unknown. When the machine stops and says that he'll kill her since he told her all she needs to know, she gives a blank confused stare.

* In ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'', [[spoiler: Hans tells Anna of his plan to leave her to freeze to death, and accuse Elsa of treason so she can be executed, so he can rule Arendelle with both sisters out of commission]].
** What makes this even more dastardly is the fact that [[spoiler:he did this to ''speed up the curse and kill Anna faster'' by psychologically breaking her.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'':
** In "Two-way Stretch Snodgrass", Mr. Conklin explains to Miss Brooks his plan to get All-American football player and high school coach Biff Mooney to work for Madison High School. Rather than first going about his plan and bragging later.
** In the [[TheMovie theatrical]] [[GrandFinale series finale]], Mr. Stone threatens to fire Mr. Conklin once Stone's elected to the new post of "Coordinator of Education". This sets up the subplot where Mr. Conklin runs against Mr. Stone to head the school board.

* In ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' Robin arrives at Poison Ivy's lair, and after flirting, Ivy agrees to tell him what she and Mr.Freeze are planning in exchange for [[KissOfDeath a kiss]] for (bad) luck. [[spoiler:Subverted because Robin wore a rubber lip and managed to survive Ivy's signature kiss and escaped with the information, albeit after also surviving Ivy trying to drown him.]]

* Averted in the Australian FanFilm ''StarWarsDownunder''. The evil Darth Drongo has stolen all the beer on the planet Oradongia and is hoarding it in his fortified brewery. As beer drinking is SeriousBusiness on Oradongia, Jedi Knight Merve Bushwacker is [[INeedAFreakingDrink well and truly pissed at his inability to get pissed]].

* ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II'': Defied by Jon Irenicus. Irenicus is GenreSavvy to an almost terrifying extent, and the only answer an inquisitive player gets is "No. You warrant no villain's exposition from me." The only way to figure out his plans and methods are to puzzle together scraps of notes and journals, and even ''then'' there are significant pieces missing.

** [[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]].

-->'''Manny:''' Is this where you tell me all about your secret plan, Hector? How you stole Double N tickets from innocent souls, pretended to sell them but secretly hoarded them all to yourself in a desperate attempt to get out of the Land of the Dead?
-->'''Hector:''' No. [=*turns around and shoots Manny with a sproutella dart*=]
* Subverted in Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall. As [[spoiler:Amsel is about to be gunned down by Audran he starts a recording and tries to get an explanation out of him, only to be shot dead by Audran mid sentence.]]

*Explored in ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'', with regard to Melisande Shahrizai. For her, it's really all about the scheming, manipulation, and {{Magnificent Bastard}}ry. She does it '''very''' well, and she wants someone to see and appreciate that. Phèdre, the heroine, was trained by Delaunay, a similarly-skilled schemer as Melisande, if rather more heroic. They're the only people Melisande believes might fully appreciate her plots. To her, the game is more important than the outcome, and playing well is more important than winning. And so for this reason, she sometimes divulges small portions of information regarding to her schemes to Delaunay, and later Phèdre.
-->'''Phèdre''': ''[to Delaunay about her recent encounter with Melisande]'' Every artist craves an audience, my lord, and she has chosen you. Whatever is to occur, it is her desire that you know she is its architect.

* ''TransformersAnimated'' has this happening between ''two villains''. Starscream has Megatron cornered and helpless, but being something of a LargeHam, he of course takes time to gloat. Bumblebee then bursts in, scoring a direct hit on Starscream with his stingers... which does nothing. He then goes berserk, mostly concerned that, as he put it:
