Anybody can get into a fight, but it takes someone very confident, very desperate, or very pissed off to stand up and ''demand'' that someone fight them. And it takes a {{badass}} to do it with style.

Whatever the form, Throwing Down the Gauntlet is the act of challenging someone to a fight or some other competition, preferably in the most {{badass}} way possible. This could result in a DuelToTheDeath, TenPacesAndTurn, WizardsDuel (if both are wizards, of course) or pretty much any type of fight that has rules involved.

Added DiffLines:

* Played straight in ''Film/FortApache'': Captain York spends half the movie trying to explain to Colonel Thursday that he needs to respect the Apache better. When Thursday derisively slams one last suggestion back in York's face, accusing him of "cowardice," York has enough and throws down his glove at Thursday's feet, demanding satisfaction. Thursday pointedly refuses (the battle is about to start), tells a soldier to pick up the glove and return it to York before relieving York of his command and sending him back with the supply wagons. Thursday's subsequent death in battle prevents York from pursuing the matter further.

* Wakamatsu attempted to invoke this towards Seo in chapter 14/episode 6 of ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun''. However, instead of throwing a pair of mittens in front of Seo, he ''gave'' them as if they were a gift, so Seo thought Wakamatsu was just too shy to give them properly.
