** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', whenever Javik is talking about what Prothean civilization was like, it's more likely than not that he's simply making up something completely outrageous just to mess with whoever he's speaking to.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', Wrex has a habit of asking outrageous questions to squadmates in the elevators, just to see how they react. In the subsequent two games, [=EDI=] will sometimes [[AIIsACrapshoot make comments]] just to mess with Shepard and the crew of the ''Normandy''. She even does it to Cerberus. It's one thing to cripple their computer network, which, as an AI designed in part for electronic warfare, is something she'd be expected to do. It's another to do it by overloading the network with ''porn''. Javik will set the galactic record for most racist urban legends spread about Prothean culture, just to see what will stick.

* Fred and George of the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books. They're natural born pranksters, and enjoy poking fun at Ron, Percy, their parents, Slytherins, and nearly any authority figure that tries to exert themselves over them (''especially'' Professor Umbridge in ''Order of the Pheonix''). They tend to not go after people they respect (such as Dumbledore or [=MacGonagall=]) or people who they feel are genuinely maligned (like Harry), although neither group is entirely exempt from the occasional quip at their expense.
** Peeves the Poltergeist is a more generally malicious version of this trope. While Fred and George tend to only irritate people they feel deserve it, Peeves isn't afraid to go after ''any'' authority figure (Dumbledore is the only professor at Hogwarts he actually fears and/or respects), and he frequently antagonizes characters who can't defend themselves, like Neville. His pranks also tend to be less harmless than Fred and George's (several mentions are made to him throwing dungbombs, which imbue the target with a hard-to-get-rid of odor, over the series, and on one occasion he is seen unscrewing a chandelier). It's worth mentioning that Peeves and Fred and George seem to have a mutual understanding of each other and generally exempt each other from their pranks - this is most notable when Fred and George order Peeves to "give [Umbridge] hell" after they leave Hogwarts, a command Peeves seems to take to heart.
