* Monkey D. Luffy from ''Manga/OnePiece'' does this to the villains, often pointing out their physical features ('''BIG RED NOSE!!!'''), seemingly just to make them mad.

* Monkey D. Luffy from ''Manga/OnePiece'' does this to the villains, often pointing out their physical features ('''BIG RED NOSE!!!'''), seemingly just to make them mad. Fittingly, his number one fanboy Bartolomeo ''lives'' to piss every non-Strawhat off, delighting in their enraged reactions and keeping any reprisals at bay with his BarrierWarrior powers.

* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': Nik tries his best to get on Jenna and Aseir's nerves to get a reaction out of them bigger than just some snide remark.

* 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-puppeting on internet forums, just to see how the public's reaction would be to the debate.

** Fred and George are both 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 refrain from pranking 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.

** Apparently the Marauders, especially James and Sirius, were prone to this during their Hogwarts days, being described as forerunners to the Weasley twins.

** Tenebrae from ''TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'' likes to push his teammates' buttons from time to time, probably the best example being him overhearing Sheena and Regal talking about how close Zelos is to his half-sister Seles, and then deliberately misinterpreting what they're saying as insinuating that he's in love with her. Right in front of him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Doctor Strange, the apparently nigh-omniscient Sorcerer Supreme, a master of precognition, time travel, and countless forms of magic, who is an unknown number of centuries old (Odin's estimate is that, with time travel, he's about 5000. The real answer is [[spoiler: probably around 500,000. He stopped counting after he hit six figures]]), and is universally feared/respected. He is also an inveterate {{Troll}}, who does things like [[StealthHiBye pop up behind people when they're least expecting it]], use his future knowledge for purposes of perfect comic timing, and indulges in being infuriatingly mysterious.

* Mitsuhide from ''VisualNovel/IkemenSengoku'' loves pushing the buttons of his allies just for his own amusement. Examples of this behavior of his are replacing [[CantHoldHisLiquor Masamune]]'s water with sake, constantly making fun of [[TeamMom Hideyoshi]]'s mother henning, waiting until the most inopportune moment to [[MomentKiller interrupt]] makeout sessions between the main character and her love interest, and telling the main character blatant lies or provocative statements just to see her "interesting" reactions.
