So, you've got your enemy on the ropes (literally or figuratively) and you feel the need to really rub it in that you've won. Or, your enemy's got you on the ropes and it's time for desperate measures to turn things round. What should you do? In fiction, one option is the Take That Kiss. (TVTropes makes no guarantees for how well this works in RealLife, so DontTryThisAtHome, or at least don't come crying to us if you do and it fails or backfires.)

Whereas the Take That Kiss sometimes serves to confirm previous FoeYay vibes, it also can be the only thing in the characters' exchanges that suggests FoeYay at all, and it will typically be more of a taunting/patronizing/desperate/tricksterish/arrogant domination display than a romantic/sexy come-on--though it's quite often played as an ironic version of a come-on, or possibly some kind of complicated double-bluff.

In effect, the "message" can range from "Try anything else, and I'll pull the plug on your career as well as make fun of you in public" (the ''Series/{{Riget}}'' example, below) through "I'm not going to let your hostility stop my aggravating exuberance" (WesternAnimation/BugsBunny, WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker) to "So you just told a memorable fable about the problem of evil that explicitly challenges all I'm thought to stand for, and now you're expecting a counter-argument? Well, actually, I'm just going to do something ambiguous and non-verbal that will nonplus you and everybody else" (''Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov'').

Though this is most commonly pulled by villain(ish) characters, it can also be done by a Designated Hero, or (as in the ''Film/{{Heathers}}'' and ''Series/{{Riget}}'' examples) by characters whose morality tends to the ambiguous. Examples of full-on good characters doing this are more rare -- but see ''Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov'' examples.

* In "Anime/{{Monster Rancher}}" episode 44 "Magical Stone Mayhem" Lilim almost kills Holly and Tiger, steals the magic stone, and almost kills the searchers (by having the army or robots shoot them to death). As she's leaving, Genki grabs on to her legs while she's flying away-- only for her to kick him down. He falls 30 feet only to be saved at the last second. Lilim tells him "Thanks again," blows a flirtatious kiss, and then flies off. Also in the same episode after she steals the magic stone from holly she gives it a kiss so in a way it's kind of a take that kiss by kissing the stone and then mockingly telling holly "thanks". Inthe uncut version of episode 45, she betrays General Durahan and kills his crew and collection of monsters. After a hard battle, she ambushes him from behind and steals the magic stone again. Before leaving, she blows him a goodbye kiss. It's safe to say lilim loves this trope so much she'd problably give it a kiss.
