->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.

* Happened a lot in ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch'', due to the nature of the plot, Nick and Johnny often showing it via footage before the actual fight. One notable example, the match between Wrestling/SteveAustin and his evil boss Wrestling/VinceMcMahon
-->'''Stone Cold:''' ...So I stunned McMahon's sorry ass. [[CatchPhrase And that's the bottom line.]]
-->'''Vince''' ''(storms in, angry): Stone Cold, who the hell do you think you are? You dare to disparage ME? You're nothing but a foul-mouthed, beer-swilling sonuvabitch!
-->'''Stone Cold:''' Hell Vince, [[InsultBackfire I appreciate the compliments]], and right after I finish this beverage, I'm gonna knock that damn toupee off that stupid little head of yours and [[CurseCutShort shove it right up...]]
Vince: HA! You impudent fool! Your physicality is no match for my superior mental acumen! That's why ''I'm'' the boss and I'll prove it in the ring!
-->'''Stone Cold:''' Oh yeah? Well listen up, you silly bastard, I'll do ya one better, we ain't gonna do this in any old wrestling ring, we're gonna do this in a Deathmatch ring!
-->'''Vince:''' You're on!

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.
