* The Wrestling/{{WWE}} once had an angle with VinceMcMahon ultimately founding "[=McMahonism=]". On his way there, he (at the behest of [[OnlySaneMan his son, Shane]]) stops at a Catholic church. After [[DudeNotFunny using holy water to mimic Triple H's "water spitting" entrance]] and claiming he has a better work ethic than God because he doesn't take Sundays off, he dares God to strike him down. Shane [[Funny/ProfessionalWrestling promptly puts some distance in between him and Vince]].

* In ''ForrestGump'', the embittered, crippled lieutenant Dan rides out Hurricane Carmen clinging to the mast of a small boat, challenging the lightning and waves to kill him. The twist is that after the storm, Dan thanks Gump for saving his life and promptly jumps over the side. Gump rushes to the side, convinced that his friend had committed suicide, but it turns out that he was merely swimming. Gump notes in retrospect that it showed Dan made his peace with God.

* Also appears in a dramatic context in ''Film/TheTrumanShow'', where Truman, realizing some personal force controls the world and has sent a storm to destroy him personally, shakes his fist in angry defiance. Notably, like in ''Film/BruceAlmighty'' (but predating it), JimCarrey, playing the protagonist, delivered the lines.

-->'''Zuko:''' "You've always thrown everything you could at me! Well I can take it! And now I can give it back! Come on! ''Strike me!'' [[CosmicPlaything You've never held back before]]! Aaaaaargh!"
** Unusually for this trope, he actually ''wants'' the lightning to hit him so he can practice redirecting it. Of course this being [[CosmicPlaything Zuko]], it doesn't go anywhere near him.

* Sean O'Cann of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' has a 'word' with God. Over the course of V3 up to that point, his best friend, cousin, and boyfriend had all been killed, as well as it being very likely he would go the same way. Even God would probably have to recoil at the sheer ferocity of the verbal attack.
