* Unsurprisingly, the Gadfly from the titular 1897 book The Gadfly is a Gadfly. One notable example is when he has a public argument with himself using anonymous letters in a manner strangely similar to sock pupating on internet forums, just to see how the public's reaction would be to the debate.

[[TheJester Usually they're not really bad people. They can be quite amusing as long as they're not going after ''you.'' Which they probably won't,]] because the target is usually limited to characters the gadfly knows well or those who react strongly.

* Fyodor Pavlovich in ''Literature/TheBrothersKaramasov'' revels in annoying and tormenting other people, and will mock the beliefs of his friends, the monks in the monastery, and his own sons for the sake of making them angry, even if those beliefs coincide with his own.

The gadfly is a character who often says things they don't necessarily believe in order to get a reaction. [[NoSocialSkills Maybe they have a hard time really expressing themselves.]] [[ItAmusedMe Or it could be they just like to watch others get annoyed, confused or angry.]]

Usually they're not really bad people. They can be quite amusing as long as they're not going after ''you.'' Which they probably won't, because the target is usually limited to characters the gadfly knows well or those who react strongly.

** Dumbledore is later noted to be deliberately screwing with people to see how far he can go before someone calls him out on it. He's actually rather disappointed no one has yet.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11634921/3/Itachi-Is-That-A-Baby Itachi, Is That A Baby?]]'', both Harry Potter and Dumbledore are firm believers in screwing with people for their amusement. Dumbledore openly admits that he's only warning people about the third floor corridor so he's legally covered and anyone who ignores him and dies will be buried in a mass grave behind the castle. Furthermore, not only are the schedules handed out five minutes after classes start, but he's ordered all prefects and teachers to not give directions to anyone who asks (or give wrong directions, whichever they choose). Harry responds to Snape insisting he attacked Malfoy because Malfoy said so by claiming Malfoy tried to stab him with a broadsword in front of the entire school.

Harry abuses his Byakugan constantly and uses his ninja skills to get around and do things that seem impossible, such as reading a book that he's using as a footrest with his eyes closed.
