* In ''Domes of Fire'', first book of the ''{{Literature/Tamuli}}'', Styric priestess Sephrenia gets tired of the stonewalling of another Styric. The last straw comes when he insults her goddess, and she resorts to the "barbaric" Elene tactic of bullying: smacking him to the floor and even threatening to cast a death spell on him (he finally cooperated at that point). She later realizes she sprained her wrist in so doing, but she later admits to everyone else that she doesn't regret it, and she sees how bullying can, at times, be so ''satisfying''.

* On ''KeroroGunsou'' this seems to be Kururu's attitude whenever one of his pranks leads him to get beat up by the victim of said prank. In the Funimation dub version of episode 22, he actually says "Totally worth it!" after [[TyrantTakesTheHelm a recently-promoted, power-addled Tamama]] drops him down a trapdoor into a dungeon for sticking Keroro and Angol Moa in the same cell.
