* In ''Anime/TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughSpace'', Tsutsuji Baba challenges God (or "fate") to smite her soon after landing on Earth. [[spoiler:Nothing happens... and it fills her with overwhelming self-confidence.]] The whole scene may be a ShoutOut to ''Higurashi''.

* An unintentional example in one episode of TheBoondocks, in which Uncle Ruckus begins a religion based on racism toward African-Americans, and telling the African-Americans themselves that they need to apologize for being what they are. At the climax of the episode, he shouts for God to strike him down if anything he's saying is untrue, though he fully believed in what he was teaching and undoubtedly thought he had nothing to fear. [[BoltOfDivineRetribution God, however, was more than happy to take him up on it.]]

Since Poseidon really has been out to get him for 10 years, ItsPersonal.
* Bethany has one of these scenes at a lake during ''{{Dogma}}'' when she discovers the truth about her mission. An angel promptly tells her that God (due to extenuating circumstances) can't hear her, but ''he'' sympathizes with her ordeal.

* In the second-season finale of ''Series/TheWestWing'', President Bartlet has already had more than enough, and then his personal secretary dies in a random traffic accident. After buying her first ever brand-new car. After her funeral in the National Cathedral, he has the Secret Service seal the room and turns to the dais. He opens with "You're a son of a bitch, you know that?" and continues in both English and untranslated (and unsubtitled) Latin.
