* In the ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'' cartoon, "Females is Fickle", Olive buys a goldfish, but is distraught when it jumps into the sea. She begs Popeye to go and save him, but he refuses (the fish was rude to him prior). A sobbing Olive calls him a coward, which is enough motive for Popeye to jump in after it.

* "FanFic/BackToTheFuturePrequel": Marty, even though he's scared of "The Doctor", spray-paints his house to avoid being called scared.
* FanFic/TheIkaris uses this to put the plot into motion. The gang finds Misato's beer stash and Asuka dares Shinji to drink. Then he dares her to try and out-drink him. By the end of it, the two are so blasted, they got married and forgot about it the next morning.
* ''[[Fanfic/AFutureOfFriendshipAHistoryOfHate A Future of Friendship, A History of Hate]]'': This is how [[ArchEnemy Fury Cross]] goads Rainbow Dash into fighting him in Episode 3. Notably, she doesn't really care about the specific insults, she just can't stand anyone disrespecting her or her reputation in any way.

* FanFic/TheIkaris ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion'': If Asuka wants to get Shinji do something he isn't sure about, everything she has to do is taunting him. That trick still works when they are in their thirties (and Shinji is quite miffed about it).
-->Asuka rolled her eyes. "Stupid Shinji, just knock on the door."\\
He balked. "Why do I have to do it? You're the impetuous one, you do it."\\
She flushed, irritated. "Damn it, Shinji…"\\
"Hey," he said, "I'm just as nervous as you are, you know!"\\
"Tch," she said. "Coward."\\
Shinji's brows knit. "I am not!" His fist clenched in determination, and he raised his hand and knocked on the door. He glanced at her sidelong. "Why does that still work?" he grumbled.\\
She raised her arms. "Who can say?" she asked, smirking at him.

The inverse trope is when the character puts up with being called a chicken because [[BadassPacifist deep down they really aren't one]]; that's TheSoCalledCoward.
