* In the {{Infocom}} game ''Arthur: the Quest for Excalibur'', the endgame involves getting to a literal gauntlet so you can go out and hit the usurper King Lot with it. If you don't have the gauntlet you'll never get to him, but with it the guards will recognize your legitimate challenge and let you pass.

->They are titans, they are the true and indisputable masters of the universe, the lords of creation, and they are unhappy with us. They speak, and theirs is a voice that shatters mountains. '''"WHO. ARE. YOU?"'''\\
The captain's lips draw back over his teeth in a mirthless grin as he plants his fists on his hips, throws back his head, thrusts out his jaw. "Who wants to know?"

* In one ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode, Homer sees the glove-slap in a movie and starts using it in real life to get whatever he wants. This goes really well until he tries it on a SouthernGentleman -- who ''accepts'' his offer of a duel.

** Subverted with Cyrano: when he challenges someone to a fight is not in the most BadAss way possible, but the most JerkAss way possible too:
** Act I Scene IV: Cyrano challenge the whole pit of the Burgundy Teather collectively! Of course he is a BadAss, but this is more because he is a JerkAss that decided to interrupt the play.
