* [[http://www.literaturecollection.com/a/o_henry/3/ "The Ransom of Red Chief"]] is a TropeCodifier. The titular "Red Chief" (what the kid calls himself in his first game, CowboysAndIndians) is so bad, that the ''kidnappers'' had to pay a ransom to his father to take him back! Totally understandable, as the kid was no mere BrattyHalfPint, but rather both a MotorMouth and a precocious MagnificentBastard- one memorable scene involves one of the kidnappers being ambushed in his sleep and nearly scalped with his own knife.

--> ''"What you getting up so soon for, Sam?" asked Bill.''
--> ''"Me?" says I. "Oh, I got a kind of a pain in my shoulder. I thought sitting up would rest it."''
--> ''"You're a liar!" says Bill. "You're afraid. You was to be burned at sunrise, and you was afraid he'd do it."''

* In ''Film/MidnightRun'', Jack is a licensed bounty hunter, not a kidnapper, but otherwise the dynamic is the same, as Mardukas annoys the bejesus out of him with his constant irritating questions. The same film showcases a defiance of this trope when rival bounty hunter Martin gets a hold of Mardukas: Mardukas starts trying to be annoying, but Martin just knocks him out with one punch and by the time Mardukas wakes up again, they've made it all the way to Las Vegas and Martin has handcuffed him to a toilet and [[spoiler:is taking pictures of him to sell him out to The Mafia]].

* The''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' episode "Ruthless Tommy" featured Tommy being kidnapped by two criminals who mistakenly believe him to be the child of a billionaire (due to them getting their ''actual'' target's house address wrong). Tommy proceeds to act in his usual manner and promptly destroys their hideout. By the end of the episode, the exasperated crooks apologize frantically and return the baby back to the Pickles ''before they even realized Tommy had been missing''.
