* In the season 3 finale of ''Series/TheFlash2014'', the BigBad Savitar [[spoiler:is about to be erased from the timeline due to Iris surviving]]. He threatens to kill everyone Barry loves before this happens. In anger, Barry runs up to him, phases through his armor, and pushes Savitar out, taking over the armor (its glow switches from blue to red). He easily bests the now unarmored Savitar and prepares to finish him off with one of the armor's blades. Savitar realizes that if that happens, then Barry killing him in anger will result in [[spoiler:Barry becoming Savitar in the future]] anyway. Unfortunately for him, he blurts it out and goads Barry to do it, causing Barry to realize what's happening. Instead, he vibrates the armor to pieces and knocks Savitar out. [[spoiler:Savitar tries to rush Barry from the back, but Iris finishes him off with a gun]].

* In ''{{Trigun}}'', Legato Bluesummers tries to goad Vash the Stampede into killing him. Vash is a TechnicalPacifist who believes "no one has the right to take the life of another"; Legato knows that forcing Vash to betray his beliefs and kill him is the single most abhorrent thing he can do to Vash. In this case, it's more of a DespairGambit than trying to push Vash off the slippery slope.

* [[TropeNamers Named]] for Palpatine doing this a lot, including saying the exact trope name, to Luke in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. Given he had years to work on Anakin and mere minutes with Luke, he must have been damn good to almost succeed too. In fact, he ''would'' have succeeded, if he had shut his mouth [[VillainBall for just five minutes]]. It's worth noting that this is explicitly not a ThanatosGambit; the real plan is to get Luke to [[SelfMadeOrphan kill Vader]], giving TheEmperor a fresh, young apprentice rather than a crippled (and [[BastardUnderstudy dangerously ambitious]]) [[TheDragon Dragon]].

* Invoked in a way similar to ''[=Se7en=]'' in ''[[NoBudget Jim Haggerty's The Slasher]]'', wherein the titular slasher tries to goad the officer hunting him into executing him once caught. [[spoiler:The detective refuses, leading the slasher to mock him mercilessly about how he'll get off easy with a good lawyer. Before his trial, however, the detective [[DoWithHimAsYouWill organizes a group of the families of the slasher's victims to have their way with him instead]].]]

* In ''Anime/RurouniKenshin'', Jin-e is perfectly willing to die just to make Kenshin break his oath not to kill. Doing so will awaken "The Battosai" premanently. [[spoiler: It fails at the last moment, thanks to Kaoru, so Jin-e is DrivenToSuicide instead.]]

* BigBad Claudia in ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'' keeps goading Heather to hate her in order to have her birth God, who dwells in Heather's body. When Claudia had a monster kill [[spoiler: Harry Mason, Heather's father]], it gave Heather enough hatred to go and seek Claudia out so she could kill her. Because the cult's God feeds off of hatred, Heather sometimes doubles over in pain. Should you try to shoot Claudia at the end of the game, Heather completely collapses and the God bursts out of Heather's body.

* In the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3460966/1/Difficult_to_Fight_Against_Anger Difficult To Fight Against Anger]]'', Warren Mears taunts [[spoiler:Willow]] by suggesting that, when he was raping [[spoiler:Tara]], he got the impression that she [[spoiler:[[PostRapeTaunt isn't all the way gay]]]]. This is completely intentional, to get [[spoiler:her]] to lash out at him [[spoiler:with magic]], so he can [[spoiler:[[MegaManning absorb her spells]]]]. He even says "[[ShoutOut Strike me down with all of your hatred!]]" at one point. This ''is'' [[{{Geek}} Warren]], after all.

* [[spoiler: Reilan]] does this in ''Manga/HaouAire''n. [[spoiler: When Hakuron rescues Kurumi from being gangraped by Reilan's henchmen, instead of giving in she begins to arrogantly taunt him, saying among other things that this is her revenge [[CorruptTheCutie for having her innocence stolen away by him]], and warning Kurumi [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness that she will be thrown away later]]. This being Hakuron, he ''does'' shoot Reilan dead... [[ThanatosGambit And this is what she actually wanted]].]]

** In the other, Naraku has protagonists split up within the final dungeon. He shows the warrior Sango that her love interest, the monk Miroku, is about to [[TakingYouWithMe sacrifice himself to try to destroy Naraku]], without realizing that it is only an illusion of Naraku that he would destroy. He uses the AntiHero Sesshoumaru's MoralityPet Rin as a HumanShield, and tries to get Sango to choose to kill Rin in order to destroy him and save Miroku, which would further corrupt the sacred Shikon Jewel with darkness (as well as probably turn Sesshoumaru against Sango and possibly the rest of the protagonists). To top it all off, unbeknownst to her, the Naraku speaking to Sango is actually just ''another'' illusion, so Sango wouldn't actually hurt him or save Miroku at all. [[spoiler: The plan successfully tricks her into trying to sacrifice Rin, contributing to the corruption of the jewel, although the other protagonists manage to save Rin, and Sesshoumaru remains focused on Naraku as the enemy (and even refuses the grief-striken Sango's "PleaseKillMeIfItSatisfiesYou!").]]

* There was a Franchise/{{Superman}} story arc where [[NinetiesAntiHero Manchester Black]], a "superhero" from ''waaaaay'' down [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism the cynical end of the scale]] messes with Superman's life in an attempt to get him to admit that idealism has its limits. Culminates with him (apparently) killing Lois Lane right in front of Superman, willing to accept the consequences because if Superman snaps and kills him that means he was right all along. [[spoiler:He fails, of course.]]
* The [[ComicBook/NormanOsborn Green Goblin]] has tried this on [[SpiderMan Spider-Man]] a few times.
