* After a demoralizing incident in ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool'', Mayumi orders the team's technician, Tatsuya, to go into their tent and comfort them. Tatsuya [[HeroicSociopath doesn't know how to do that]], and he's scared that he might accidentally make them feel worse, so in the end he decides to just work as normal inside the tent and not mention the incident at all. This is exactly what Mayumi intended, [[StiffUpperLip because seeing someone who (they thought) was calm made the team calm down]].

** Goku, [[IdiotHero of all characters]], manages to pull one off against Cell in the climax of the Android Saga. When he finds out that his son is indeed stronger than him, and still had extra reserves of power, he sets up a situation so Gohan will unleash that power against Cell. He volunteers to fight Cell first and gives it everything he has before he gives up, and then lets Gohan fight against him after he manages to study both Goku and Cell's fighting styles. Goku expects Cell to push Gohan to his limits so he'll unleashed his hidden power, which is exactly what Cell does and Gohan becomes the first ever Super Saiyan 2 in the series and proceeds to [[CurbStompBattle hand Cell his own ass on a platter.]] The only thing Goku didn't expect was that Gohan would get cocky and not finish Cell off immediately, or that Cell would blow himself up when he knew he was going to lose.

** It could even be argued that the whole plan of the major revolved doing it at the very end of the series [[spoiler: by expecting Alucard first to release Level 0, then use up his familiars fighting Anderson, then fight Walter, forcing him to absorb every one of the dead while Warrant Officer Schrödinger, who has the power to be everywhere and nowhere, killed himself and threw himself into the sea of blood, thus 'poisoning' him, which it happened...everything else only served to lead to that moment, that assumption, fifty crazy long years planning on this greatest Batman Gambit.]]

** Donquixote Doflamingo has a penchant for this, which fits his [[PeoplePuppets puppetmaster powers]]. Entire plan to [[spoiler:take over Dressrosa]] relied on the fact, that king would try to collect money, that Doflamingo demanded from him, instead of trying to fight back. King, being the pacifist, obliged, which allowed Doflamingo [[spoiler:to demonize him in the eyes of his subjects and pose as as a saviour of people, when he took over the country.]] Later, knowing, that Luffy allied with Law, he starts big gladiatorial competition [[spoiler:with [[PlayingWithFire Mera-Mera fruit]] as a prize]], correctly guessing, that Luffy would enter the competition [[spoiler: out of feelings for his brother]] and thus walk directly into his trap. He does this again when Luffy and Law make it to his castle - this time he makes Bellamy fight Luffy, correctly guessing, that even after he sent Dellinger to kill Bellamy, beaten him to near death and used him as a [[MeatShield human shield]], he would still fight Luffy out of his pride, while Luffy would hesitate to fight someone in his condition.

* Dante of ''Anime/DevilMayCryTheAnimatedSeries'' does this in the seventh episode "Wishes Come True" in order to rescue someone thrown in Devil's Prison due to the machinations of an evil demon mask. He first causes a disturbance in the city in order to get himself arrested and thrown into the prison. Then when he's faced with the creepy Warden, he kicks his ass in order to get himself thrown into the special block of the prison where the guy he's trying to rescue is being held. This also has the side benefit of placing him in a position to stop [[spoiler:the sadistic hunt performed by the Warden and the guards upon the inmates of that block when they go demonic]].

In ''Manga/DGrayMan'' the earl of millennium orchestrates one in the Alma Karma arc, so much that the whole arc could be summed up as and is compared as a theatre play with the earl as the director, the exorcists as the actors and the fourteenth as the spectator. He invades the Black Order with his akumas and Noah and has everyone there immobilized. Meanwhile the other Noah ambush the exorcist around the world so they can't join the headqurters. Allen and Kanda fought into getting to the Black Order alone where the earl waits for them. There they use Alma's brain to awaken Alma Karma so that Kanda has to fight him and the exorcists have to fight the third exoecists. The earl anticipates that Allen would try to stop them but Kanda wouldn't listen and eventually badly hurt Allen Allen with his innocence. All this to force the awakening of the fourteenth Noah inside Allen. Then all the order acts as the earl expected: They put Allen in Jail and force him to escape and go AWOL.
