* In ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'', ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} goads [[EvilTwin Satan Girl]] into fighting in the anti-matter universe. Satan Girl initially refuses to take the bait, but Kara knows which buttons to push.
-->Kara stopped at the warp-gate and looked behind her. Satan Girl had stopped as well, less than a mile behind her. To her credit, she wasn't stupid. She knew that Supergirl was leading her on. And, having Kara's memories, she knew where she was headed.\\
<That is the anti-matter universe,> sent Satan Girl.\\
<Oh, very good,> mocked Kara, smiling like a teacher tutoring her most backward pupil. <Now, if you'll just join me here, I can finish you right off.>\\
The villainess didn't budge. <It'll blow us both to bits if we touch any substance there without force-shields or matter-conversion,> she sent. <I can just wait you out. You'll come back, or you'll be atomized. Either way, I win.>\\
<Oh, will you?>, asked Kara. <I thought for certain that you wanted to tear me apart with your own hands. Except it hasn't been that easy, has it? Maybe you're just not up to it, after all... since you're just a pretty pathetic copy of me.>\\
Satan Girl's expression of hatred, which was about the only one she owned, intensified. <YOU...> she began, and that was all she could get out.\\
<Just one more thing, darling,> sent Kara. <I didn't want to have to tell you this, but we killed Mordru. He's dead. Hope you didn't get attached to him too much.>\\
At that, Supergirl knew she had succeeded.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Brienne uses this tactic to pretty much save Jaime Lannister's life after [[spoiler: he loses his right hand]]. Jaime's pretty much hoping to die at that point, and doing everything he can to bring it about, until she accuses him of being too cowardly to live with what's happened. It actually works, because while people have been calling him a murderer and a traitor behind his back for decades, no one has ever called him a coward before -- and he's not about to let them start now.

* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fic ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', Franchise/WonderWoman tries to goad Badra into unchaining her and fighting her. Unfortunately the villain doesn't take the bait.
-->"Would you like to punish me, Wonder Woman?" she cooed. "Would you like to try your famous Amazon strength against my mere Hatorian body?"\\
"You know the answer, coward," said Princess Diana. "But unchain me now, and I'll let you have the first three blows. If your might is all you claim it is, then that should be enough, should it not?" Diana plastered a sneer on her face, trying to incite the woman to rage.\\
Badra replied, "I am not so foolish as to relinquish my own advantage, Diana. Held by those man-joined chains, your power is negated. Freed, you might be a threat to me... so the fetters will remain until the time of your execution. Or should I say, your murder?"

* In ''{{Exiern}}'' any insult to Tiffany's pride requires retribution...whether it is a sword fight or holding a dressmaker at sword point until she makes Tiffany prettier and more feminine than the AlphaBitch. For the record, Tiffany [[GenderBender used to be a male barbarian]].

* ''Fanfic/CommonSense'': In Chapter 21, Misty, who is still sore about Ash defeating her in Cerulean City, and refusing to accept that he's grown stronger than her, tries to goad him into a battle by accusing him of being afraid to battle her. This ends up hitting Ash's RageBreakingPoint, since she's trivializing everything he's gone through due to Team Rocket at that point, and after giving her a good TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, he proceeds to ''[[CurbStompBattle trash]]'' [[CurbStompBattle her entire team with]] ''[[CurbStompBattle one]]'' [[CurbStompBattle Pokémon.]]

* In ''Webcomic/HereThereBeMonsters'' Lucas managed to goad Victor into giving away all but one of his silver bullets before leaving to hunt a werewolf, bragging "I only need one silver bullet to do the job, unlike you wasteful slobs." That worked out for Victor about as well as can be expected.
