* Rumy of ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'' challenges the General to one-on-one combat. The General is GenreSavvy enough to say "No" and order her {{Mooks}} to open fire instead, but after Rumy rips into her [[AGodAmI divine image]] with accusations of cowardice, she gives in rather than cause [[{{Cult}} her side]] to doubt her.

* Done subtly in ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' when, after Theo Galavan [[spoiler:has his mother killed in front of him]] and then orders a minion to get rid of him, Penguin dares him to do the deed himself, accusing him of coming from a long line of cowards. Without changing his expression or even betraying that this trope so motivated him, Galavan obliges him... only for Penguin to turn the tables on him and escape to reveal the murderer's true colors to Gordon.



* TruthInTelevision: In Tennessee and the DC area, you can get arrested for calling someone a coward if they refuse to fight you. This is actually where the phrase, "Them's fightin' words!" comes from. "Fighting words" is actually a legal term referring to words spoken to deliberately incite a fight, which is illegal.

* This was very nearly the undoing of Second World War flying ace and [[TropesAreNotBad rare positive example]] of InspirationallyDisabled Douglas Bader. Someone dared him to perform [[DoABarrelRoll an aileron roll]] at low level over the airfield, which he wasn't especially keen to do for the very good reason that it's bloody dangerous... Then they implied that this was down to cowardice on Bader's part. So he tried it, and it went horribly wrong and cost him both his legs.
