Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Gloating. Monologuing. It's what villains do. Maybe they "set up us the bomb" and are calling to rub it in and take credit, perhaps he's just snatched the MacGuffin from the hero's very hands and insist on staying just out of reach to taunt. Maybe the villain finally has the hero at his mercy and just has to taunt him one last time before shooting him.
Or perhaps this is the place where they finally have a chance to get all the reasons they despise the hero personally off their chest. Any mistakes the hero makes are also fair game for villainous gloating. At any rate, while this is a villainous staple on par with a hero and In the Name of the Moon, it's still one of the things the Evil Overlord List strenuously warns against, as any villain caught gloating is sure to be either killed or foiled, as in the end his gloating always ends up giving the hero that little bit of extra time or information that helps him counter the villain's Evil Plan. In their defense, it's really fun and gives you that warm evil feeling in the black pit of your soul when you utterly grind your opponent's face into the dirt. Unfortunately, most villains fail to grind hard enough. But how could anyone appreciate the brilliance of your scheme unless you explained it to them?
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Another way this could easily backfire is that it goes hand in hand with Engineered Public Confession. A savvy hero can use it as an easy way to reveal the Chessmaster or Manipulative Bastard to the world and bring their plan crumbling around them.
This also goes hand in hand with Evil Plan, where it's practically required to give the hero and viewer exposition of just what the heck is happening. Expect the villain to let out an Evil Laugh and start to Trash Talk about how the hero(es) are powerless to stop his Evil Plan. It can greatly surprise them when the hero interrupts with Get It Over With.
Heroes tend to not gloat, which is why villains facing a Sword over Head will usually either be allowed to live or killed without (much) fanfare: compare After-Action Villain Analysis. Instead, heroes expect the villain to do this, so there may be a Have You Come to Gloat? moment.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })This is one of the most well mocked villain cliches, but is very much an Undead Horse Trope. For one thing it gives a villainous character a great chance to act and flesh out their character a little more. For another, it's both Truth in Television and a very appropriate Fatal Flaw for the prideful, narcissistic characters who often become villains.
If they've just finished owning The Hero, this may have been preceded by Ominous Adversarial Amusement and is sure to become "The Reason You Suck" Speech, but don't worry, a Thwarted Coup de Grâce is coming up. May overlap with Trash Talk. See also Villain Ball and Did You Actually Believe...? Has some similarities to the Motive Rant.
Roger Ebert coined the Trope as "The Talking Killer" in his book Little Movie Glossary.

Sherlock: Both of the Big Bads cause their own downfall by doing this:
Moriarty (Big Bad of Series 1 & 2): He gloats that Sherlock's suicide is the only way to save his friends from execution, but adds "I'm certainly not going to do it." This clues Sherlock in on the fact that the snipers can, in fact, be stopped another way: if Moriarty does it himself.
Magnussen (Big Bad of Series 3): Gloats that he's beaten Sherlock and reveals that his blackmail "files" cannot be stolen from him because they're inside his head...which tells Sherlock that, if he put a bullet in said head, this would no longer be a problem.

Watchmen plays this straight, but with a nod to the oft-fatal habit of monologuing, but adds the already infamous twist to the end. When confronted by Rorschach and Night Owl, Ozymandias coolly explains his master plan to them. The heroes expect to be able to stop him yet, but he bluntly tells them that he wouldn't be wasting his time talking to them if they still had a chance to stop him, his plan was already completed about half-an-hour ago.

In Pact, where declaring that you are going to do something and then following through holds metaphysical weight, the laws of the universe actually encourage gloating to your enemy before you attack them, because it allows you to get a greater benefit out of doing so and gather power to recoup what you lose in the attack. Savvy characters, however, do recognize the value of a bullet.

Worm features a lot of villains and hence unsurprisingly this trope is seen in pretty much every one of them that can talk and one or two that can't. Even some of the heroes join in. Though the Extermination Arc established that the most powerful entities for both sides don't bother with it.

In GoldenEye, following an intense fist fight, Trevelyan is armed, James Bond is at gunpoint... and he stops to breathe and then say "You know, James? I was always better" before shooting - and he misses, because his pause gave Bond a chance to kick open a trapdoor and go down a staircase. (James Rolfe used this as an example for Why Don't Ya Just Shoot Him? on his "10 Worst Clichés" list.)

The Incredibles:
Discussed by Frozone and Mr. Incredible when recounting stories of their glory days:
Main villain Syndrome grew wise to the same ploy when Mr. Incredible meets him.
However, this later leads to Syndrome's downfall as he vows to get Mr. Incredible's baby son Jack-Jack someday, only for Mr. Incredible to throw his car at him, causing Syndrome to get his cape caught in the turbines, killing him in a huge explosion.

Bleach: In both the anime and manga versions, the 9th Espada, Aaroniero Arruruerie, fights Rukia, breaks her sword, and skewers her with his trident. He pulls her closer so that he can gloat effectively. This is when Rukia pulls out her third Shikai which reforms her sword through Aaroniero's head instantly killing him. Sure, Rukia's sword reforming and her subsequent rescuing are major Deus ex Machinas, but in Bleach, readers lost count long ago anyway. And that's not even going into Sosuke Aizen, who just loves to listen to himself talk, going by the fact that he has on a few occasions taken the time to fill the good guys in on every little detail regarding exactly how bad he's screwed them over. During his final battle with Aizen in the Deicide arc, it got so bad that Ichigo got sick of it and flat out stated as such while interrupting one of the latter's monologues. In the Fullbring arc, Giriko breaks into this when Drunk with Power...which gets him killed by Kenpachi.

Arrow:
Black Siren does this a lot, though it also tends to backfire on her, as it gives her enemies a chance to sneak up on her. Since her power is a sonic scream, she can't use it while she's talking.
After Team Arrow uncovers his true identity, Prometheus just has to gloat about how well he's played them, how they can't stop him, and how he'll ruin Oliver's life.

Castle:
The villains often resort to this, sometimes because the evidence is so thin that it's necessary to have the murderer confess so the audience can be satisfied that Castle and Beckett have the right person.
Averted in "Probable Cause". Someone frames Castle for murder. As Castle sits in a holding cell, they take the incredible risk of slipping into the police station to gloat. Except... it was all part of his plan to disappear. The Evil gloating gave Castle and Beckett the leads they needed to catch him, which was a necessary part of his Batman Gambit to be "killed" by Castle and Beckett.

Disney Animated Canon:
Sleeping Beauty: Maleficent does this once she's imprisoned Prince Phillip in her stronghold. Rubbing her victory in his face, along with her plan to keep him locked away for a hundred years and then set him free when he's ancient and wizened, probably helped his Heroic Resolve a great deal.
Probably the one thing that defines Kaa of The Jungle Book (1967) as a villain rather than just a hungry predator is his gleeful tendency to play with his food. He would have surely eaten Mowgli if he hadn't extended the whole thing to a musical number.
In The Great Mouse Detective, Ratigan causes Basil to have a Heroic BSoD by gloating about how he led Basil right into his trap, then describing his overly complex Death Trap which includes a recording of Ratigan gloating through song.
Ursula does this in The Little Mermaid (1989) after she succeeds in hypnotizing Eric away from Ariel in her Vanessa guise. To her credit, she gloats only in the privacy of her room when Eric and Ariel aren't around but Scuttle still overhears her loud singing and is able to inform Ariel in time for them to crash her wedding to Eric.
At the end of The Lion King (1994), when Simba, still blaming himself for his father's death, is dangling from the edge of a cliff, Scar can't resist indulging in this and freely admits that he killed Mufasa. At this revelation, Simba pulls off his Heroic Second Wind and literally chokes Scar to get him to admit the truth to everyone else.
A couple of examples from The Emperor's New Groove: Kuzco turns back to gloat at Pacha as the latter hangs from the remains of a Rope Bridge, and promptly ends up in the same predicament, while later Yzma's Ironic Echo gloat is ruined by her lackey Kronk's Captain Obvious lampshading.
In Zootopia, this ends up biting Dawn Bellwether in the butt; Nick and Judy manage to catch a recording of her gloating about how she used Night Howler extract to make predators go savage, and how she exploited the ensuing anti-pred hysteria to seize power.
In Frozen: Hans smugly gloats he had already been planning to kill Elsa in order to get the throne. "But then she doomed herself, and you were dumb enough to go after her!".

Williams also pulls this in Memory, Sorrow and Thorn in the part of Evil Sorcerer Pryrates, who spends half of the climactic chapter gleefully explaining his plans to the now-helpless protagonists so everyone involved will know exactly how thoroughly they failed to stop him. For bonus style points, he works some of it into the summoning ritual for the Storm King — and true to the trope, said villain promptly cuts off the gloating by demonstrating that Evil Is Not a Toy.

Umineko: When They Cry: One example from the Banquet of the Golden Witch, Beatrice: "And for you, just as expected, it's 'tears please,' and you're down!! I~diot, what a truly simple person!!" That said, it's not a good idea to make the person you're trying to get to sign something feel like crap. It's used far more effectively in the arc just before it. "You are incompetent!" Turns out this was an Invoked Trope as Beatrice is trying to lose and does this to avoid a Springtime for Hitler.

The Simpsons:
Mr. Burns is known for doing this, (Springfield's organized crime community is relatively less prone to it) but an especially sickening example is in Who Shot Mr. Burns part 1. At the town hall meeting about Burns' plan to block out the sun, Bart is telling the people at the meeting about how his dog was crippled by Burns' oil drilling operation; Bart shows the town the dog's cast and everything, and Burns walks in at this exact moment and says "oh, those wheels are squeaking a bit; perhaps I could sell him a little oil!"
Subverted when Homer ends up owner of the power plant:
In one of Sideshow Bob's schemes to kill Bart, he places him restrained on a conveyor belt, which apparently includes the option of "gloating speed" for Bob to give a triumphant verbal bashing long enough for his family to arrive and save him.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003): In "Return to New York, Part 3," Stockman takes the time to gloat that every component of his cyborg armor has its own backup power source. Donnie quickly realizes that this includes the Arm Cannon the Turtles sliced off previously, and levels it at Stockman, who has just enough time to go Oh, Crap! and try to escape before he's blasted out the window.

In the start of a Justice League episode, Evil Gloating is Invoked, and Deconstructed through being Exploited. Lex Luthor has Superman at his mercy, thanks to a chunk of Kryptonite, and could go any moment for the killing blow, yet he gloats about exactly how he committed his latest crimes, the list of people he bribed... And when Lex is finished, Superman gets up and punches Luthor, before revealing he was actually the Martin Manhunter (who wasn't vulnerable to Kryptonite and was faking it all this time), and that the Justice League just pulled off an epic level sting operation.

Naruto:
Despite being a very intelligent and shrewd man, Kabuto Yakushi has a terrible habit of gloating before fallen enemies when he thinks (and usually does) he has the upper hand in a battle.
A good example is when he fought Tsunade in order to "convince" her to heal Orochimaru's soulless arms. He began kicking her while she was in her hemophobia-trauma-shock and taunting her for "bringing shame to the name of Sannin. Which Orochimaru has brought glory and power to!" (or something along those lines).
He also seems to do this whenever he and Naruto manage to meet up in battle. Since Naruto has a short fuse on anything involving Sasuke, it's not even a challenge to get him riled up by Kabuto's taunts.
Hidan is very good at this, which greatly annoys his partner Kakuzu.
Madara Uchiha. The majority of what comes out of his mouth is this constantly brags about how superior he is to everyone else.

Fullmetal Alchemist: This is a pretty common behavior of the homunculi, due to their massive arrogance.
Envy absolutely loves using this to make people squirm. Unfortunately for him, he admits to killing Hughes in front of Roy Mustang of all people. Not terribly hard to guess what happened after that.
Greed and Lust both indulge in Explaining Your Power to the Enemy (the latter because she didn't plan to leave them alive anyway), Wrath often monologues about humans being weak, and Pride is a Smug Snake because of his habit of threatening people and bragging about his superiority. Unlike most examples of Explaining Your Power to the Enemy, they didn't really say anything that could make the good guys pick up on a weakness. They had to figure that stuff out on their own.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (IDW): Lampshaded and Invoked on a number of occasions.
In "The Return of Queen Chrysalis", as Chrysalis begins to describe what will happen should the Mane 6 miss the deadline, a fillynapped Scootaloo blurts out that she's about to reveal her evil plan to the heroines. Annoyed at the interruption, Chrysalis cuts off communication.
In "Night of the Living Apples" Twilight, after the main six are captured, asks Bad Apple what he intends to do. He answers that he plans to gloat.
In "Ponies of Dark Water", Twilight's flowchart for taking over Equestria has, as its penultimate step, "GLOAT!" in big bold letters. She duly indulges in this at the end of the comic, boasting about her genius, how she predicted everything that happened and how none of the other characters have a chance to stop her... right before she falls for the old bucket-over-the-door trick and gets the evil washed out of her.

Harry Potter villains just love this trope. Voldemort himself is easily the biggest offender, though nearly every major villainous character monologues at least once in the series.
After spending a whole year hiding among his greatest enemies and keeping a large part of his internal thoughts and beliefs hidden to the deepest recesses of his mind, with only a small part of them well-disguised enough (as the actions of the person he disguised as) to be allowed to slip, it comes as no surprise that Barty Crouch's outburst is nothing short of grande where he reveals his role to Harry, brags about his importance to Voldemort and rants about the role he contributed to the Dark Order that will be imposed.
Finally inverted with Harry himself monologuing Voldemort at the very end. Harry is in the lucky position of finally holding all the cards - to the point where it doesn't even matter that he tells Voldemort exactly how his shiny new weapon works. It's not even really gloating — he's actually trying to give Voldemort one last chance to save his soul.

In Yumekui Merry, Hercules loves to do this since he's a Large Ham. It helps that he's strong enough to tank enemy attacks while barely breaking his train of thought. John uses this against him in the big fight by baiting Hercules into gloating, then ending the daydream since it was in John's yard, to throw Hercules off mid-gloat.

Frieza really likes to play with his food when he fights, and always takes the time to rub in his enemies' faces how puny and weak they are compared to him. The most notable example is in Resurrection 'F', when after Goku is shot In the Back by Frieza's Dragon Sorbet, Frieza decides to torture Goku slowly and painfully while rubbing in his face how stupid he was to show him mercy a second time. His gloating leads right to his downfall when, in an attempt to twist the knife even further, he tries to goad Vegeta into killing Goku for him by offering him a high-ranking position in his army; Vegeta refuses, saves Goku, and beats Frieza to a pulp.

In "Cold Snap", the villain is an Evil Genius who has spent decades stewing over various perceived slights, including a defeat by the hero's mentor fifty years earlier. When he gets the hero and the hero's archnemesis (present in an Enemy Mine capacity) in his clutches, he goes into a rant that lasts for over an hour. The story cuts away to another scene for most of it, and only comes back at the end when he starts getting into useful details about what he's actually done, with his two captives nudging him without him noticing into telling them everything they need to know. The hero notes that this is the sign of a second-class villain, as compared to a consummate professional like his archnemesis who will never give you advance warning of his evil plan — as his archnemesis demonstrates shortly afterward.

In Red vs. Blue, Felix does this when he captures the Reds and Blues, despite his partner telling him to just get on with killing them already. He calls it therapy for having to deal with their idiocy. Naturally, this bites him in the rear, since it gives Carolina a chance to save them. The Reds and Blues take advantage of his love of this later on, getting him to gloat about how he'd been Playing Both Sides of Chorus's civil war... while unknowingly being recorded. Finding that he'd been Out-Gambitted by the people he dismissed as losers sends him straight into Sarcasm Failure.

The Dresden Files:
Harry Dresden frequently notes the tendency of villains to do this, and thinks that it must be part of his training. He usually uses the opportunity to seize the initiative in combat, but sometimes is tempted to do the same himself, usually to his cost. For the immortals, it's somewhat justified since they live for so long that it can be easy to lose track of time spans less than a decade. The humans, though, are just stupid, arrogant jerks.
Nicodemus subverts this trope by not spilling his plans when he has Harry tied up and at his mercy, prompting Harry to comment that he must have read the Evil Overlord List.
In Ghost Story, a villain actually uses this to their advantage -when she continually gloats about the situation in the middle of a fight with Dresden, he just thinks she's being stupid and attacks. He realizes a bit too late she was actually trying to trick him into Cast From Hit Pointing himself to death.

Supernatural:
Demons are the only type of evil at first the brothers face who pull this one. Occasionally some other malevolent beastie will indulge but every single demon does it when most creatures just get right to the killing, or at least attempted killing, of the brothers. In the first season finale, the Yellow Eyed Demon does this. Dean lampshades it with "Just kill us, 'cuz I just can't take the monologuing." This just fuels the Demon's Breaking Speech.
In later seasons, the angels, fallen and otherwise, demonstrate that they can't resist monologuing either.

Discworld:
This is a common feature of villains. Commander Vimes considers that an evil man always likes their enemy to know they've been beaten, thus giving them a chance to turn the tables, while if a good man feels he has to kill you, he'll do it with hardly a word.
Cats and witches also prefer an enemy who knows they're beaten. A key difference is that cats and witches know the dangers of monologuing, so they instead just make sure their opponent is so good and beat that there's no question.

Pretty much every villain from the web fiction serial Dimension Heroes displays this trait to some degree.

Coraline gets out of the Other Mother's clutches by fake-guessing that her parents are hidden behind the door that leads out of the world, causing the beldam to open it so that she can gloat about Coraline being wrong.

Several World of Warcraft raid bosses do this, especially if you start wiping. Kael'thas and Malygos have raised it to an art form.
Arthas is so incredibly fond of this that it prevents him from actually accomplishing anything. He shows up and gloats at you,then just goes away and lets you interfere with his plan.
He is allowing the players to advance themselves and even allow them to interfere with the Scourge's plans all to get them stronger so he can kill the players once they reach him in Icecrown Citidel and raise them as uberpowerful generals and use them to overpower all resistance and take over the world.
And after he succesfully does the above... He proceeds to gloat enough to allow Tirion Fordring to summon Heroic Willpower and ruin all his plans in one strike.
Keal'thas also does this in the Frozen Throne Campaign, where he tells Arthas exactly what his and Illidan's plans are, though in that case he is far less of a villain. It does, though, help cause the plan to fail in a similar manner as other villains. Once Arthas knows the plan, he takes a faster route to the Lich King, and arrives in time to organize the forces and fight back.

Inuyasha: Hakudoshi's demise is a direct result of this trope. While fighting Inuyasha's group, he decides to openly brag to them about how he plans to betray Naraku. Unfortunately for him, Naraku overhears the whole thing and promptly recalls the Saimyosho and disables Hakudoshi's barrier, leaving Hakudoshi to his fate of being sucked into Miroku's Wind Tunnel.

In the episode of The Big Bang Theory entitled "The Vengeance Formulation", Sheldon makes foam fall on Kripke from the ceiling tiles in his office to get back at him. The plan goes horribly wrong when the president of the university and the board of directors are drenched with the foam too. Then, to make matters even worse, a pre-recorded video comes on to Kripke's monitor. It contains Sheldon gloating about the "classic prank" that Kripke has just fallen prey to. He also gives congratulations to Leonard and Raj for helping him with his plan.

Supergirl (2015): Lex is first introduced in a flashback where he is gloating to his sister about the fact that he turned the sun red to kill Superman. He is dismissive of the fact that humans can't survive under a red sun either. In the last episode, he invites his sister and mother to the White House and says he's above gloating... and then spends the entire conversation gloating about how he's a Villain with Good Publicity who controls the President.

The Order of the Stick:
After Elan defeats Lord Kubota and is about to bring him to trial, Kubota proceeds to gloat that he will never be charged, and that he will get off scot-free due to being an apparently Magnificent Bastard. Vaarsuvius disagrees.
Subverted earlier with Elan's Evil Twin Nale: after Elan catches him with Haley in a compromising position, Nale proceeds to gloat at Elan's stupidity at not seeing that Haley is evil and has been selling out the Order of the Stick. The catch is that none of it is true, and Nale is gloating about something that never happened, but since Haley is afflicted with aphasia at the moment, she can't defend herself against the evidence at first.
Nale even lampshades it earlier. He did gloat out all his plan. Only he did it securely alone, to the mirror, in order to get the urge out of his system.
He's so savvy about his Evil Gloating that the fact that he'd been monologuing to Elan for an hour and Elan hadn't escaped yet is what breaks him out of a Lotus-Eater Machine.

Digimon Adventure: In "The Crest of Sincerity", Cockatrimon takes time after intercepting Mimi, Sora, Biyomon and Palmon to gloat about how he's captured the other kids and petrified the other Digimon, and about how he's going to capture them too. This gives the heroes the time to come to grips with the situation, costing him the element of surprise and, when he finally gets around to attacking, allowing them to dodge his Eye Beams and flee. If he'd attacked as soon as he saw them he might have won then and there, but...

Subverted in Schlock Mercenary by the Gatekeepers when they captured Tagon and Brad's gate-clones.
Though General Levaughn Matsui Xinchub took every opportunity to gloat.
Tagon, although at least nominally heroic (insofar as the money is good, anyway), took rather too much pleasure in gloating over Xinchub and Ceeta after capturing them, while explaining his plan to sell them into slavery. It didn't backfire on him immediately, but the eventual results did nearly cost him his life and the lives of his entire command several times, so it probably evens out.

In the last quarter of Resident Evil 5, Wesker's speeches are pretty much nothing but this, intermixed with his truly epic Villainous Breakdown.
Wesker truly is the epitome of this. He's got it so bad, it's to the point where he literally has a gun pointed straight at Chris' head, and had a perfect opportunity to just off him right there. Except... he ends up just gloating and trying to convince Chris exactly how wonderful of a God he will be.

Jojos Bizarre Adventure: Evil characters like to gloat when they are in a position of power.
DIO describes being fully synchronized to Jonathan's body and regaining his full strength as "the greatest high" and sees that he almost feels like singing.
Kars fully enjoys describing the sun and his position as the strongest being on earth after using the Stone Mask on himself.
Kira gloats about how he has luck on his side, saying his full name in public. Then Josuke surprises him...
More down-to-earth than most, but Pucci, after killing everyone but Emporio and cornering him in Green Dolphin Street Prison, still takes the time to expose his motivation and how his plan works to the helpless Emporio.
Valentine confidently dares Johnny to use his last Steel Ball and nails, knowing that he cannot use the Super Spin without a horse.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Ronan the Accuser has a habit of doing this. It bites him on the ass at the end: by stopping to give a grandiose speech before annihilating Xandar he gives the Guardians enough time to improvise a plan to separate him from his planet-destroying MacGuffin.
Avengers: Age of Ultron: Parodied and defied when Tony Stark asks Ultron what he's planning on doing with the Vibranium ore that he stole. Instead of going on a monologue, Ultron mocks Tony's attempt to play on his hubris and attacks him.

Captain Marvel (2019): After defeating Fury in hand-to-hand combat, Talos takes a moment to gloat about his victory and comment about Keller's glasses. As he begins brushing off his hands, he's hit by a photon blast from Carol, who had just arrived on the scene.

Satan likes his Evil Gloating in Old Harry's Game. Several episodes have him place a bet with the Professor about how horrible humanity is, with the stakes simply being that if Satan's proved right, he gets to gloat about it.

Black Lagoon features a Nazi bursting into a room occupied by the series' resident Ax-Crazy Action Girl Revy. The Nazi then starts yammering on at length about his Luger and how he's the only one capable of "taming it". What he fails to notice as he flaps his trap is Revy calmly reloading in front of him. By the time he's ready to fire, Revy shoots him in the gut.

In the Jackie Chan Adventures fic Queen of All Oni, Jade sometimes lapses into this, but is aware of it, being the savvy villain that she is, and tries to avoid it most of the time. Finn, Valmont, and some other characters also do this at multiple times throughout the story, and it usually doesn't turn out well for them.

Smallville Season 11. Lex Luthor could have learned all of Superman's secrets by merely keeping his mouth shut and letting his equipment do its thing after secretly dosing Supes with radiation that allows his satellites can track his every move. But as soon as the satellite comes on line, Lex demonstrates it to Superman, in order to gloat about how screwed he is. And based on a comment he makes later in regards to increased Superman sightings, at the time Lex didn't even consider that Superman had a Secret Identity!

In the 6th season premiere of Stargate SG-1, Anubis does this when he finds a way to overload the Earth stargate.
Hell, the Goa'uld as a whole love this. Not one of them ever passed up an opportunity to force SG-1 to their knees and make with the claims to Godhood. Anubis was really prone to it though. Even Apophis would probably regard announcing that "Your end of days approaches! You shall bow to my awesome power!" as a bit much.
And the Goa'uld wonder why the Tau'ri refuse to take them seriously.
Indeed, the only ruling Goa'uld they do take seriously are Lord Yu (who is too old and senile to ham it up that much), and Ba'al (who has learned how to be Affably Evil).

Pokémon: Zoroark: Master of Illusions: Grings Kodai, the Big Bad, is shown to have a massive ego, so it's only natural that once he thinks he's won by absorbing the Time Ripple, he proceeds to give a Nothing Can Stop Me Now speech, believing he's won and there's nothing Ash can do to stop him now. Then time starts reversing and he discovers that not only was the Time Ripple he just absorbed an illusion created by Zoroark but that Karl, a reporter traveling with Ash's group, has caught his entire Evil Gloating session on tape. Cue start of Humiliation Conga ending with that same footage airing on the TV network that ''HE owned''.

Time Lord, the 1990s licensed Doctor Who RPG, gave villains a negative "Gloating" skill. If they captured a player character, they would be forced to roll against it, and if they "succeeded" they would waste time monologuing.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Strikers: Quattro, Smug Snake that she is, does some big time gloating as she forces the main character to fight against her daughter. In retrospect, this probably wasn't a very good idea. She probably got this from Jail himself, since he did gloat about the power of his Combat Cyborg and Gadget Drone technology. In Jail's case it is justified, as he has already proven the might of his creations by successfully destroying Riot Force 6 HQ and crippling the TSAB Ground Forces HQ and simply felt rubbing his victory to everyone's faces, topping it off with an Evil Laugh.

Sword Art Online:
During the Fairy Dance arc, Sugou brags to Asuna about his belief that Kirito is too scared to enter ALO to save her in an effort to demoralize her. It backfires; Asuna knows that Kirito is more than strong enough to enter ALO if there's any chance of saving her, and knowing that he's still alive helps her Heroic Resolve.
Sugou does it a second time after Kirito defeats him in ALO and proceeds to attack him in real life in revenge. When Kirito tells him he's finished and should just turn himself in, Sugou smugly brushes him off, stating that countless organizations would want his work and shelter him from the law. After Kirito overpowers him and leaves him unconscious in the parking lot, Sugou's gloating in that regard is proven wrong; he's arrested and incarcerated for his crimes.

In Mass Effect, it turns out that even The Reapers aren't immune to evil gloating. Sovereign tells you that there's nothing you can do to stop him and the other Reapers from wiping out all sentient life in the galaxy. It also claims that you're just a tiny insect compared to it and that you have no way of understanding its nature, and yet there it is delivering its evil speech. Subverted at the end of the third game; it turns out he was lying like a rug about his motivations.

The Flash (2014):
In "The Man In The Yellow Suit", the Reverse-Flash murders all of the cops in the room except for Joe West, apparently just so that he has someone to gloat to.
When Zoom has Barry defeated and wounded, what does he do? Show off his victory to the newspaper, the CCPD and Harrison Wells. After being outed as the fake Jay Garrick, Zoom shamelessly gloats about how he fooled everyone and how he uses the facade to destroy people's hope. In retrospect, a lot of the comments "Jay" made about Zoom, such as him being an "unstoppable demon with the face of death" and his constant (if accurate) warnings that Barry didn't stand a chance against Zoom, come off as subtle Evil Gloating.
Most of Savitar's dialogue consists of him gloating about his godhood and how he's going to kill Barry and his loved ones.
The Thinker loves reminding Barry and Team Flash of how every failure they've experienced at his hands.

Girl Genius takes a stellar use of this trope when Lucrezia Mongfish, in Agatha's body, turns Klaus Wulfenbach into one of her slaves and gloats about a wonderful Heterodyne-Wulfenbach alliance to come. Klaus even says, "Heard you gloat too many times." However, the self-congratulater is undone by her own pride. Watch it here.
One of the previous Heterodynes was apparently plagued by the habit of gloating prematurely or decided to leave some advice to future generations and inscribed onto the stairs a list of things that must be taken care of before it's safe to gloat.

Death Note:
"Sayonara, Raye Penber."
"I am Kira." Just so he could see the look on Naomi Misora's face moments before his Artifact of Doom kicked in.
Light also gloats evilly at the end of the penultimate episode. While it wouldn't have changed the outcome had he not done so, it was pretty reckless of him, and he only did it as a matter of pride to show how confident he was that he had successfully tied up all remaining loose ends.
The look on his face when L dies. Hell, in the anime, Light went so far as to literally dance on his grave while gloating about his victory.
And then in the manga Light gloats one last time when he thinks Mikami is writing his enemies' names down. It backfires badly.

In the season 1 finale of Lexx "Gigashadow", His Divine Shadow spends the last few minutes of the episode revealing his true nature and goals to the main characters. He taunts them with their failure to prevent his rebirth fueled by the sacrifice of nearly the entire population of the Light Universe and bids them extinction, capped off with an Evil Laugh. This causes his downfall since he's so busy gloating that he doesn't notice the baby Cluster Lizard Squish when it eats his brain.

NCIS uses this often. In "Murder 2.0" a serial killer uses a YouTube site to broadcast his murders, all in the name of fame. The killer proves to be a real headache for Gibbs, and when the team catches them, they boast that they would still be famous when their identity was revealed. Gibbs makes sure that no details about the killer are released to the public because of "possible links to terrorism".

At the end of The Lion King (1994), when Simba, still blaming himself for his father's death, is dangling from the edge of a cliff, Scar can't resist indulging in this and freely admits that he killed Mufasa. At this revelation, Simba pulls off his Heroic Second Wind and literally chokes Scar to get him to admit the truth to everyone else.

Endlessly parodied in Kim Possible, where Dr. Drakken just can't quit gloating, no matter how many times Shego warns him about it. Of course, the otherwise savvy Shego lost when she was Evil Overlord because she gloated herself, pressing Ron Stoppable's Berserk Button.
Amusingly, Shego wasn't going to gloat at first, and only decided to do so after Drakken goaded her into it.

Clock King left a The Tape Knew You Would Say That message to Batman in a Death Trap with a Just Between You and Me speech that ends with You Have No Chance to Survive

Zordrak of The Dreamstone often monologues in excess, which often has repercussions the odd time he takes an active role. In "The Knitted Balloon" he possesses Amberley, and leaves a bewildered Rufus convinced she's given the Dreamstone to his minions, he couldn't resist flying out her body to mock Rufus to his face however. His Urpney minions tend to avoid this, due to being cowardly enough that they just want to get the job over with. At least a couple occasions this was reversed outright, with the Urpneys gaining the upper hand because the heroes engaged in some gloating about how pathetic they were.

Mahou Sensei Negima!:
Chao does this to Negi's friends after sending them a week into the future when she'd already won the battle by sticking a note gloating about her victory on the side of Eva's resort.
Evangeline is also fond of evil gloating, especially when she isn't doing anything evil. She probably wants to remind everyone she most definitely has not gone soft.

Dragon Ball Super: During the Future Trunks Saga, Zamasu seizes virtually every opportunity to go off on A God Am I speeches and Motive Rants, constantly taking the time to remind Goku and the Z-Fighters of his belief that he's a "true God" and how there's nothing they can do to stop him. Eventually, he admits that he doesn't actually care if anyone listens to his gloating; he does it simply to hear himself talk. By the time Future Zamasu and Goku Black fuse together and the Merged Zamasu starts to go off on another Motive Rant, Vegito is sick of listening to the gloating and cuts him off with a punch to the face.

The Boondocks character Colonel H. Stinkmeaner is quite possibly the king of this trope. Every single word he says is evil gloating. At one point he even dies, goes to hell and basically gloats that he is more evil than the Satan, to which Satan readily agrees.

Kane does this to the player midway through the GDI campaign of Command & Conquer, completely unaware probably aware that GDI is Faking the Dead.
Kane also gives a good one to Mike McNeil after breaking through the Hammerfest defenses in Tiberian Sun and stealing the sonic crystals, leaving behind a broadcast in which he glibly informs him that the sonic tank "will make an excellent addition to my collection", and that he is sorry to hear that McNeil's brother died a slow and painful death in the raid.

Game of Thrones:
Roose Bolton and Walder Frey's scene in "Mhysa", when they are gloating the morning after massacring their enemies, though it is deconstructed as they are only gloating after their victims are thoroughly dead.
Tywin Lannister is generally not that vulgar in public, but there are exceptions:
He also waits until his victims are dead when in a private moment he gloats by overseeing the re-purposing of an enemy heirloom (Ned Stark's sword 'Ice') for his own family with smug satisfaction, and throws the sword's wolf pelt sheath in the flames, celebrating the Lannisters triumph over the Starks.
In the History and Lore videos, on King's Landing, he is positively proud of his cold and brutal betrayal of Aerys Targaryen, noting how the King "thought he was being clever" by keeping Jaime as a hostage against him. He also considers "The Rains of Castamere" as a quaint song and sends it as his go-to death threat to anyone who so much as thinks of resisting the Lannisters.
Reversed in Oberyn Martell and Gregor Clegane's scene in "The Mountain and the Viper".
After Tansy is torn apart by the hounds, Myranda remarks, "Not so pretty now."
Joffrey, which doubles as Evil Is Hammy.
In Season 8, Euron tells Yara that the only reason why she's still alive/still has her tongue is because he wants someone to brag to. This winds up biting him in the ass when Theon sneaks aboard and rescues her.

Transformers Animated:
When Starscream wants to destroy Megatron by using his clones as bomb decoys, he just has to gloat instead of detonating the damn things, giving Megatron and crew time to get clear and let the Autobots save the city. In fact, in this series Starscream is addicted to evil gloating, spending time bragging instead of offing the people he wants to off, like Megatron.
This guy takes his evil gloating really seriously. He gets pissed off when Bumblebee interrupts him.
At one point, he gets cloned, each one of which represents a bit of his personality. One, Thundercracker, speaks entirely in evil gloating.
This is averted with Megatron (the only TF canon where it is averted, come to think of it), who stands over Optimus and gloats that he's going to finally destroy the person who left him as a head for fifty years before turning right around and blasting the slag out of Starscream, the guy who actually did it.

Clockpunk and the Vitalizer The Vitalizer dismisses the heroes' intelligence, Clockpunk's effectiveness, and the fact that he's perfectly capable of killing her if his plans go awry.

In Wolfenstein (2009), Blazkowicz comes across a Nazi officer standing in front of a Veil portal. His gloating is interrupted when he is rather violently Killed Mid-Sentence by a giant, mutated abomination that telefrags him.
Continued in Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, with Rudi giving a long villain speech gloating about how badly the free world is losing in the face of the hyper-advanced Nazi war machine. And then there's also the newspaper report telling of how the Nazis actually made slaves of the Allied troops captured in the catastrophic D-Day landings and used them to build a giant museum dedicated to the Nazi's defence. Talk about rubbing the salt in.

Arrowverse:
Arrow:
Black Siren does this a lot, though it also tends to backfire on her, as it gives her enemies a chance to sneak up on her. Since her power is a sonic scream, she can't use it while she's talking.
After Team Arrow uncovers his true identity, Prometheus just has to gloat about how well he's played them, how they can't stop him, and how he'll ruin Oliver's life.
The Flash (2014):
In "The Man In The Yellow Suit", the Reverse-Flash murders all of the cops in the room except for Joe West, apparently just so that he has someone to gloat to.
When Zoom has Barry defeated and wounded, what does he do? Show off his victory to the newspaper, the CCPD and Harrison Wells. After being outed as the fake Jay Garrick, Zoom shamelessly gloats about how he fooled everyone and how he uses the facade to destroy people's hope. In retrospect, a lot of the comments "Jay" made about Zoom, such as him being an "unstoppable demon with the face of death" and his constant (if accurate) warnings that Barry didn't stand a chance against Zoom, come off as subtle Evil Gloating.
Most of Savitar's dialogue consists of him gloating about his godhood and how he's going to kill Barry and his loved ones.
The Thinker loves reminding Barry and Team Flash of how every failure they've experienced at his hands.
Legends of Tomorrow: Damien Darhk had plenty of gloating when he appeared on Arrow, and nothing changed when he appeared on Legends. When Darhk is about to kill Sara, he starts gloating about how he got his magic back and is invincible. No one else is impressed.
Supergirl (2015): Lex is first introduced in a flashback where he is gloating to his sister about the fact that he turned the sun red to kill Superman. He is dismissive of the fact that humans can't survive under a red sun either. In the last episode, he invites his sister and mother to the White House and says he's above gloating... and then spends the entire conversation gloating about how he's a Villain with Good Publicity who controls the President.

Masters of the Universe: Frank Langella, by far the best thing about this movie, gives "the best damn villain monologue I've ever heard. In fact, if you ever watch this film, just watch the parts with Frank in it, the man is at the height of his craft and does it right.

Doctor Who:
The Daleks are prone to this, but do it to a noticeably greater extent with the Doctor than anyone else. In "Asylum of the Daleks", the Dalek prime minister suggests this is because they find the Doctor's hatred for them so beautiful that they can't bring themselves to destroy it; while in "The Time of the Doctor", the Doctor argues that they're always so frightened he has something up his sleeve that they don't dare just shoot.
"Doomsday": The Cyber-Leader, managing to sound incredibly smug for an emotionless shell, engages in some towards the Doctor after Jackie and Yvonne are dragged away to be converted, claiming that the Doctor is proof of how emotions destroy.
"Smith and Jones": The Plasmavore doesn't confess to the murder of the Child Princess of Pantroval Regency 9, because confessing would imply she feels any guilt about the crime. No, she's proud of sucking a little girl's blood.
Subverted at the end of "Utopia", when Professor Yana transforms into the Master and begins to run away with the TARDIS. He says "Now, then, Doctor! Oooh, new voice. Hello, hellooo, helllloooo! Anyway... why don't we sit down and have a nice little chat where I can tell you all my plans and you can work out a way to stop me, I don't think!" Then he zooms back into the past, leaving the Doctor, Martha Jones and Captain Jack at the End of the Universe.
In the next episode, "The Sound of Drums", he does decide to indulge in some to the Doctor at the end, after having captured him, giving him a one-on-one New Era Speech.
"Partners in Crime": Miss Foster cheerfully explains her scheme in creating baby Adipose out of the fat of unwilling humans, a process that can easily be ramped up to convert the entire person, to reporter Penny Carter after capturing her. This also fills in the eavesdropping Doctor and Donna in on what she's up to.
"Cold Blood": Silurian warrior Alaya goads Ambrose Northover into killing her with a taser by talking about the gruesome fate planned for her captured son, in an attempt to start a war between humans and Silurians.
"Day of the Moon": The Doctor weaponizes the enemy's evil gloating (and suggestion power) by injecting a recording of a Silent arrogantly declaring "You should kill us all on sight" into the recording of the first Moon landing, thus ensuring that pretty much every human who lives from that day onward will receive that command.
"Resolution" features an exceptionally creepy scene where archaeologist Lin gets this from the Dalek recon scout using her as a Meat Puppet.

Don't stand there talking about it."

In Superman stories:
Smallville Season 11. Lex Luthor could have learned all of Superman's secrets by merely keeping his mouth shut and letting his equipment do its thing after secretly dosing Supes with radiation that allows his satellites can track his every move. But as soon as the satellite comes on line, Lex demonstrates it to Superman, in order to gloat about how screwed he is. And based on a comment he makes later in regards to increased Superman sightings, at the time Lex didn't even consider that Superman had a Secret Identity!
Who Took the Super out of Superman?: As soon as he engages Superman, Solarman can't help but gloating about his sunlight-collector suit giving him power enough to beat Superman and becoming the biggest criminal around. And then he gloats over how much of a rush is getting by beating Superman around, not realizing Kal-El is using his own life energy to overload his powered costume.
In Superman: Brainiac, the titular villain captures Superman and then lays out his entire scheme: going to Earth, stealing one city and destroying the planet by turning the Sun into a super nova.
In Who is Superwoman?, Supergirl has just unmasked the titular villain and demands answers. Superwoman isn't dumb enough to confess why or on whose orders she murdered Agent Liberty, but she still gloats about killing Supergirl and then framing her for the crime. Supergirl proceeds to beat Superwoman to the ground.
In For the Man Who Has Everything, Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman go in the Fortress of Solitude and stumble upon a comatose Superman. Instead of attacking while they're distracted and with their backs turned, Mongul greets them, introduces himself, explains what he has done to Superman, and smugly declares he'll take over the world after killing them one after the other.
At the end of Red Daughter of Krypton, Worldkiller-1 boasts that Supergirl's heroic sacrifice has failed to destroy him, and now she's dying she can't stop him from taking over her cousin's body. And then he dumps her body in the Sun... which is the worst possible way to dispose of a Kryptonian.
Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?: When he finally appears, Mr. Mxyzptlk gloats about killing Superman and proceeds to chase after him and Lois... instead of merely wishing Superman out of existence.
In The Great Darkness Saga, Darkseid and his Servants are inclined to ceaselessly declare the inevitability of his eventual triumph.
In Crucible, Roho loves gloating over his inevitable victory before running away.

A frequently exploited trope in Red Panda Adventures. Multiple episodes, such as "Barbarian at the Gates" and "The Doctor is In", open with the Red Panda seemingly at his enemy's mercy, only to eventually reveal that the Red Panda had long since freed himself and was simply egging his captor on to try and learn more information. If the villain isn't obliging on their own, the Red Panda gives them a little nudge with his hypnotic abilities.

The LEGO Movie. Being such an overdramatic villain, you'd expect this from Lord Business. Specifically at the point where Emmet and his friends witness the death of Vitruvius at his own hands in the Think Tank, meaning now he is able to have his opponents at his mercy. But he isn't stupid to do this - none of them are able enough to take a shot at him. As in, all of the Master Builders have been imprisoned, Vitruvius is dead, Emmet is tied to the self-destruct mechanism's battery, Lord Business is armed to the teeth and not to mention his outfit makes it almost impossible to attack him. It doesn't do him any harm to gloat when everything's coming up great for him.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Ethan Rayne likes doing this. And its the only thing The First Evil ever really did, being intangible. Angelus was good at it too.
In the Season 6 episode "Older And Far Away", Dawn has unwittingly made a wish to Halfrek, one of Anya's friends from during her time as a vengeance demon, resulting in everyone who came to Buffy's birthday party, and anyone else who entered the Summers house, being mystically trapped within said house. At the end of the episode, she pops into the house to gloat about how they'll be trapped forever and how they deserve it for not paying attention to Dawn's pain and abandonment issues... but when she tries to dramatically teleport out, it turns out she's fallen victim to her own curse, forcing her to break the spell so she can leave, much to her annoyance.

Diabolik: Sometimes happens, usually done by the title character but sometimes by Ginko. They do it after the plan has been completed, with Diabolik doing it from safe distance.

In the third Ace Attorney game, Dahlia Hawthorne lays bare the sheer contempt she feels about the Fey clan and Phoenix; she's dead, having been channeled by a medium, so she believes she's beyond punishmment. Boy, is she wrong.

Subverted in the Paperinik New Adventures story "Might and Power": Morgan Fairfax is about to illustrate the plan to Paperinik to show off his genius, but Grrodon cuts him off because "I know it perfectly, my soldiers don't care about it, and PK will soon be too absent to appreciate your genius!"

SHODAN does this a lot in the System Shock series. In both games she taunts the player that she is superior to you in every way because as an AI construct, SHODAN has access to more human information and more control over machinery that any human on Earth could ever even conceive. She also explains how being an organic life form makes you inferior and in the second game, she says that the only thing she likes about you are the cybernetic implants she gave you. She especially does this as you traverse the levels trying to find her, but when you show up for your showdowns with SHODAN her taunting amounts to nothing more than mere Boss Banter.

In the Family Guy/The Simpsons crossover, Peter and Homer start a Giant Chicken-style fight over which beer is better (according to Homer and Moe, Pawtucket ripped off Duff). Both end up falling into a vat of radioactive goo, get radioactive powers, fly into the sky, and continue their fight aboard Kang and Kodos's Flying Saucer. Eventually, Homer loses his powers and grabs on to keep himself from falling to the ground. Still powered, Peter starts telling Homer what he'll do to him... then he too loses his powers, laments talking for too long, and falls.

The Transformers:
A freshly returned Megatron starts gloating and boasting to Ratchet, who sarcastically quips whether he's going to start explaining his whole plan as well. Megatron just retorts that he has every intention of telling Ratchet what's going to happen.
During the Underbase storyline, Ratbat decided to start with some evil gloating to Danial and Hi-Q about his plan to take the Underbase's power for himself. Unfortunately, he chose to do this right in front of Scorponok, a Walking Armory who was one of the largest and most powerful Decepticons, while Ratbat was one of the smallest. Unsurprisingly, this led to Scorponok deciding that the smaller 'Con had become a liability.

Dragon Ball Z:
Frieza really likes to play with his food when he fights, and always takes the time to rub in his enemies' faces how puny and weak they are compared to him. The most notable example is in Resurrection 'F', when after Goku is shot In the Back by Frieza's Dragon Sorbet, Frieza decides to torture Goku slowly and painfully while rubbing in his face how stupid he was to show him mercy a second time. His gloating leads right to his downfall when, in an attempt to twist the knife even further, he tries to goad Vegeta into killing Goku for him by offering him a high-ranking position in his army; Vegeta refuses, saves Goku, and beats Frieza to a pulp.
Cell does this a grand total of three times:
In his first form, Cell takes the time to tell a wounded Piccolo about his origins and goals after attempting to absorb him. It bites him in the ass when Piccolo reveals he was faking the injury to get him to talk and promptly regenerates his arm. Which Cell should have known Piccolo could do, since he has the exact same power, inherited from Piccolo.
After successfully manipulating Vegeta into helping him absorb Android 18 and becoming perfect, he takes the time while curb-stomping Vegeta to rub it in his face, mockingly thanking him for doing so and outright stating that he never would have been able to reach his perfect form were it not for Vegeta's arrogance and stupidity.
After returning from his near death experience and killing Trunks, he spends several minutes detailing how he returned, acquired Instant Transmission, and despite Goku's attempt to stop him, is stronger than ever. To rub more salt in the wound, he rubs in the Z-Fighters' faces that Goku sacrificed himself for nothing and mockingly thanks him.
Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might: Turles gloated a lot at first. He gets angrier as the movie progresses and more or less drops this by the final showdown.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: With the Holy Grail in her hands, Elsa Schneider prematurely brags that the grail is hers to keep as she steps across the boundary that she was warned multiple times not to cross. This causes the temple to collapse and Elsa is unable to give up the prize, because she’s so sure she can reach it until she falls to her death.
In the PC adventure game, Elsa is even less willing to accept defeat. After Indy’s continued warnings about the seal, she says, "No! I don't believe it! I won't lose it now!"

Mr. Bones from Kukuburi is a veritable monologue junkie. Even though he fails to impress the protagonist, he still monologues so much he ends up the Mr. Exposition of the story, simply by virtue of getting to her before her proper mentor had a chance to do any mentoring.

In Alan Wake's American Nightmare, Mr. Scratch, Wake's Humanoid Abomination Evil Twin frequently lords his near-triumph over Wake, particularly in his video messages, whether thrilled over a recent kill, showing off his weapons or contemplating how easily he'll manage a Kill and Replace in Alan's life due to his perceived superiority.

Done successfully by Londo Mollari in the Babylon 5 episode "The Rock Cried Out No Hiding Place" He explains to Lord Refa, via recording, his entire Evil Plan for no reason other than to grind Refa's face into his failure and imminent demise. Of course Refa is then horribly murdered by a mob of angry Narns and framed posthumously for treason, fulfilling the rant and the gambit both.

Ursula does this in The Little Mermaid (1989) after she succeeds in hypnotizing Eric away from Ariel in her Vanessa guise. To her credit, she gloats only in the privacy of her room when Eric and Ariel aren't around but Scuttle still overhears her loud singing and is able to inform Ariel in time for them to crash her wedding to Eric.

In Hellsing, Zorin Blitz really likes doing this. However, it proves to be her undoing when she calls Pip Bernadotte an 'insect' and mocks him and the Wild Geese, while a blind and mutilated Seras is crying over his body. Understandably, Seras doesn't take it very well. To the extent that she paints the walls with Zorin's head.

In Haruhi Suzumiya, Ryoko Asakura does this when she attempts to kill Kyon so she can watch Haruhi's reactions. She was literally a second away from killing Kyon when Yuki saved him. If Ryoko hadn't taken the time to explain why she wanted Kyon dead, she presumably could have killed him before Yuki even arrived.
