* 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''.

* Taichi in ''CrossChannel'' adopts this as his default demeanor. [[spoiler:He has a hard time knowing where to draw the line and is often far more hurtful than he intends. It's also an act.]]

** Ange from ''TalesOfInnocence'' is also a master of this, and like the aforementioned Jade, drops her gems in the same tone as everything else she says, so more often then not the rest of the party believes her until she says she's kidding.

** [[LittleMissSnarker Edna]] continues the proud tradition in ''TalesOfZestiria''. She winds up Mikleo almost every time she talks to him, and messes with Alisha due to her rather naive nature. Occasionally, when she's not picking on him as well, [[HandsomeLech Zaveid]] joins in on the act too, even noting at one point that he can see why she has so much fun winding up Mikleo. * Kamikura Hiroki of ''{{Canvas 2}}'' enjoys picking on friends, love interests and students for fun. There are a few he won't mess with, but they are the exception rather than anything approaching the rule.

** More than once, a few of the others - such as Haruna, Kazumi, even Chachamaru - have said or done something teasing or over-the-top mainly to get a reaction from others.

* Heihachi Hayashida in ''Film/SevenSamurai'' is a joker and a clown who likes to tease people sometimes. He's particularly fond of picking on Kikuchiyo. He is the one who coined "Kikuchiyo" as the samurai wannabe's new permanent name, as a reminder of the drunken scene that the man made the night before the samurai left for the village..

** {{Deadpool}} does this as constant part of his character but unlike Spiderman, [[NoFourthWall knows he's in a comic book]] and is always treating the world around him as a writers intent instead of being actually crazy.....which he is. * Amy's "crush" in SonicTheComic is implied to just be her teasing Sonic because she likes to see him flustered, in contrast to all other continuities where she's a [[SmittenTeenageGirl Smitten Preteen Girl]].

* [[ServileSnarker Gramps]] from ''Manga/{{Ojojojo}}'' loves to tease Haru, and on several occasions withholds information about what her friends are doing because it's more interesting to see her get worked up over nothing.

* {{Spider-Man}}, One of the founding fathers of the [[TropeCodifier trope itself]]. Especially to the hero community and his various villians.

* ''FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops'' are basically a justification for turning canon characters into a swarm of gadflies.

* ''FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops'' are basically a justification for turning canon characters into a swarm of gadflies. It's the only mechanism most of them have for dealing with the endless repetitions of the time loops without going completely insane from boredom.

--> I spend my life personally, and my work professionally, keeping the soup boiling. Gadfly is what they call you when you are no longer dangerous; I much prefer troublemaker, malcontent, desperado. I see myself as a combination of {{Zorro}} and [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} Jiminy Cricket]]. My stories go out from here and raise hell. From time to time some denigrator or critic with umbrage will say of my work, "He only wrote that to shock." I smile and nod. Precisely.
