In The Elder Scrolls series, one of the myths surrounding Sheogorath , the Daedric Prince of Madness , has a wizard come to him asking for power. Sheogorath says he can have it, if Sheogorath fails to drive the wizard insane within three days. The fear drives said wizard completely bonkers even though Sheogorath hadn't actually bothered doing anything.
One of the Impossible Questions is from a category called "It's a Dog! The answer really is "a dog. Web Comics. In Freefall , Sam Starfall's reputation for pulling these off is so well-known that it works even when he doesn't actually have a plan. Helix: What sort of devious master plan do you have, Sam?

In Unreal Estate , Kisei does this to the man who had her father killed, promising to come back and kill him on a Wednesday. SCP Foundation : Dr. Clef is very fond of these. That's as ridiculous as claiming that I've prepared a sopoforic-laced gum to give to you under the guise of a friendly offer of refreshments, thus knocking you out so that I can dispatch you at my leisure and throw your body into the incinerator, destroying all evidence, meaning that it will never be traceable back to me. Western Animation.
An episode of The Angry Beavers does this: Norbert spends the majority of the episode telling Dagget "gonna get ya". And then he subverts it at the end by punishing him anyway. On American Dad!

Steve and Roger stop him by blocking his fishbowl. Stewie lets Brian have a free shot at him, but he won't know when, and Stewie goes mad with anticipation. Subverted in the last second of the episode, where Brian kicks Stewie in front of a bus. Acres short "Rooster Revenge", Orson gets even by doing "the worst thing possible: absolutely nothing". Lanolin actually does play a joke on him using a disguise that makes her look like Orson in a Paper-Thin Disguise.
In Justice League Unlimited , Superman 's suspicions about Lex Luthor and his growing public approval rating left him open for Luthor to trap him with this. Luthor had a self-sustaining city built for the homeless, and Superman detected a device with a timer underground. Ignoring Captain Marvel's pleas to resolve the issue peacefully, he charged straight down to destroy it. As it turned out, the device was a generator, which, though powered by kryptonite, was legit.
Superman had levelled the city by this point, however, and had publicly fought Captain Marvel over the incident. This left his own reputation in tatters, and resulted in Captain Marvel resigning from the Justice League in disillusionment. Had Supes left well enough alone, all Luthor would have gained was the extra PR from his charity.
In fact, Luthor only expected Superman to destroy the generator; he never expected Supes and Captain Marvel to get into a televised slap-fight that destroyed the city. Luthor was then able to publicly "be the bigger man" by paying for the damages himself and refusing reimbursement by the League.
Another more minor example occurs between Hawkgirl and Vixen , both rivals for Green Lantern John Stewart's affections though Vixen was his girlfriend at the time, while Hawkgirl was his ex. Hawkgirl laments the fact that she cannot resolve this rivalry as she could have done back home on planet Thanagar, like by, for instance, poisoning Vixen's water. A little later on, Hawkgirl throws Vixen a bottle of water as the latter leaves the room, who, recalling what the former had said, warily bins the bottle.

Candace of Phineas and Ferb pulls this on herself in "The Best Lazy Day Ever", when her brothers decide to spend the day relaxing in the sunshine. Without one of their insanely ambitious schemes to expose to their mother she doesn't know what to do, working herself up to encouraging them to take on a project and finally doing it herself. Phineas and Ferb remain idle under their tree the whole time. He seeks revenge on his former employer Mockridge, who had contemptuously fired him when he asked for a share in the profits of a game he'd created.
Batman and Robin manage to save Mockridge, but the Riddler gets away and implies he will eventually return to finish the job. The episode ends with a terrified Mockridge in his mansion, locking every door and window in the place, checking every shadow, and getting into bed with a loaded shotgun at his side while Bruce muses on the situation: Bruce: Mockridge may have his money, but he won't be sleeping well. Real Life.
Bomb threats in general do this. Some terrorist groups sometimes report the bombs they planted - in vague terms. Evacuation of a large public place and related panic especially if the threat turned out to be real causes plenty of terror, even without killing civilians or even using any bombs. Killing civilians is bad PR.
