* Vegeta in ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' is goaded by Cell into sparing him just long enough for Cell to become powerful enough that they can have a "fair fight". Vegeta even beats up the other characters who try to stop him. Needless to say, this doesn't end well.

* Ace from ''OnePiece'' falls prey to this whenever anyone badmouths Whitebeard or threatens his little brother. Indeed, his original purpose in the series is to hunt down Blackbeard after his "insult" of killing a fellow crewmember. This trait tends to go poorly for Ace though as he always gets defeated/captured/hurt whenever this trope takes effect (we even learn after the fact that Ace's battle against Blackbeard was an example of this as Ace couldn't leave Blackbeard alone even if he wanted to due to both the threat he posed to Luffy and the insult to Whitebeard that would occur if he had abandoned the battle. He loses this battle horribly and gets captured as a result). Finally, in what is the most apt example of this trope, Ace, [[spoiler:after having just been freed from execution in Marineford]], gets goaded into a fight with Admiral Akainu via the latter purposely insulting Whitebeard. Then, to make matters worse, Akainu invokes Ace's second berserk button by suddenly attacking his little brother, resulting in Ace taking the punch for Luffy. "Going badly" understates the result of this [[spoiler:as Ace dies from this even though he's in a series well known for its [[DeathIsCheap fluid mortality]].]]
* In ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'', after Leonard Apollo arrogantly cancels the Japan vs. America football match between the Deimon Devil Bats and the Nasa Aliens, Hiruma baits him into going through with it by making a viral video that, among other indignities, depicts Apollo as a chicken.

* In one occasion where the ''StuntDawgs'' were contract bound to perform stunts for one of Fungus' movies, he tried to use this trope to make them wear blindfolds during the performance. They said that the contract didn't require them to accept that request and they asked 60 million dollars in exchange for doing it. Fungus made a counter-proposition (half the gross profits) and they accepted it.

* In ''Film/HotToTrot'', Fred Chaney's step father can't believe that Fred's entering Don the horse into a race, and considers making a bet, pointing out that he can bet Don (when Fred says he has nothing to bet). He calls Fred chicken shit, then laughs off the bet, but when Fred calls his step father chicken shit, this pushes him into betting all of his horses (including his girlfriends beloved Satin Doll), just because nobody calls him chicken shit.
