* Part of why Harry Potter dislikes Quidditch in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11502532/1/Breath-of-the-Inferno Breath of the Inferno]]'' is because as a dragon animagus, he can sense gold, so even without his SuperSenses he still always knows where the golden Snitch is. That and it's more fun to fly under his own power.
* In ''Fanfic/AlphaAndOmega'', Shinji describes to [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild-Asuka]] that he gave up the power of God after he fixed the world because it was so boring. He could do anything he wanted with ease, which removed the point of doing anything at all.
-->'''Shinji''': Imagine a videogame where nothing can hurt or attack you and you can instantly kill every enemy without even pushing a button. Absolute power doesn't corrupt absolutely; it leaves you absolutely sick of it.

* ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'': In one match, Maximus kills each of his opponents extremely quickly, leaving his audience totally silent, [[YouBastard which makes him chastise them]] by saying [[MemeticMutation "Are you not entertained?!"]]. Proximo also criticizes Maximus for this, urging him to WinTheCrowd when he fights.

** After becoming perfect, Cell quickly becomes bored after stomping Vegeta into the ground and Trunks' Ultra Super Saiyan form proves to be too slow to give him a good challenge. So, he decides to create the Cell Games so Goku and his friends can become stronger to challenge him and test his perfect power. He never once considers the possibility that any of the Z-Fighters could become strong enough to defeat him, only expecting them to be able to give him a good fight. This eventually leads Cell to [[RageBreakingPoint pushing Gohan to his breaking point]] so he can unleashed his hidden power after Goku declares Gohan to be the strongest fighter in the Cell Games. [[GoneHorriblyRight He gets his wish, and promptly get his ass kicked]], resulting in an epic VillainousBreakdown.
** Much like Cell, Super Buu sees himself as the strongest in the universe and [[BloodKnight wants to test his ability against strong opponents]]. Anyone who can't provide him with a challenge is immediately killed. At the same time, he only wants to fight people he ''knows'' he can beat. When fighting against an opponent who completely outclasses him like Ultimate Gohan and Vegito, he has [[VillainousBreakdown breakdown]].

** Unlike his BadFuture counterpart, who relishes in mass-murder and destruction, the present-day Android 17 enjoys himself much more when he's got an even fight on his hands as opposed to a CurbStompBattle, even leaving his defeated opponents alive so they can come back stronger and fight him again in the latter case. He also only follows his programmed directive to seek and destroy Goku for the sake of something entertaining to do, which he makes clear by deliberately sacrificing efficiency for fun in this hunt.

After compelling Belldandy to become her magically-bound slave Sayoko soon cancels the contract. As she explains to Mara, a victory relying on demonic magic meant nothing compared to personally crushing her rival.

* The "Ignore them, they'll go away" school of handling being bullied relied on this trope, and has thankfully been acknowledged to be a generally lousy way of handling bullies. The expectation was if you don't respond to the bully they will get bored. As always when applying fiction tropes to RealLife, RealityEnsues and actual results vary widely, sometimes it works, but sometimes the bully is satisfied by the simple ongoing challenge of trying to get noticed again.

* The [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame Hirogen]] from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' are like this. The more powerful and cunning the prey, the more enjoyable the hunt. [[HoistByTheirOwnPetard This comes back to bite them on the ass]] when they program holographic prey that become more dangerous than their creators.
