** The Autoresponder seems to get a real kick out of screwing with people, especially Jake. It almost comes back to bite him when he has to convince Jake to [[MagicKiss kiss Dirk's severed head to bring him back to life]] but, because he can't resist leeringly hitting on him and making jokes about ''ASpaceOdyssey'' even as he tells him that his friends are dead, [[CryingWolf Jake almost refuses to believe him.]]

* Akane of ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' sits right on the line between this trope and being a full-blown {{Troll}}. She absolutely delights in screwing around with people, but often has a [[TricksterMentor vaguely benevolent ulterior motive]]. The exception is [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld her]] great-great-grandaughter Akari, who she antagonizes just for kicks.

Compare TheTease for overtly sexual examples. Compare and contrast with {{Troll}}, who does this out of malice instead of amusement.

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 who react strongly.

* After being [[PeggySue sent back in time]], [[Anime/CodeGeass Kallen]] thinks over how she can react to Lelouch's plotting at various points in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11864574/3/Like-A-Wish Like A Wish]]''. One of her options is invariably to screw with Lelouch for fun. When determining what to do about his plan to deflect her suspicion of him, one of her ideas is to go along but also flirt with him and see what happens.

* ''Literature/ToReignInHell'': Mephistopheles continuously tosses out verbal provocations as a way to glean information and make others confront their own issues. He's also a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who cares deeply for his friends and will genuinely apologize if he manages to actually upset someone.
