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.

* A meta-example in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' would be author KenAkamatsu's plot to essentially write an [[RuleOfCool over the top]] {{Shounen}} action series when his publishers ''wanted'' a HaremSeries by [[HiddenDepths hiding the action-y]] elements.

* 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.

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.

** In part 4, Red Hot Chilli Pepper (stand that absorbs electricity and uses it to function) runs out of energy in his fight with Okuyasu. As other characters approach to interrogate him, he asks, why Okuyasu believes in his weakness, suggesting, that maybe he is faking his helplessness in order to kill Jotaro when he isn't expecting it. Okuyasu, unable to decide what to do, acts out of his grudge for his brother's death and attacks, [[PortalCut erasing part of the ground]] and exposing powerline underneath it, giving stand enough energy to defeat Okuyaso and escape.

** In part 7 Gyro fights against Ringo Roadagain, who can [[TimeMaster rewind time for six seconds]] by turning a hand on his wristwatch. Gyro announces, thar he will strike old wound in his collarbone, paralyzing the left side of his body, which would make him unable to use the watch and kill him, by stopping his heart. However, Gyro's actual plan depended on him finding a way to turn back time, despite being paralyzed - he anticipated, that Ringo, knowing about the attack, would protect himself with his left hand. That would throw off his aim, making previously fatal wound non-lethal. He correctly guessed, that Ringo would try to kill him with second shot, used previous six seconds to memorize exact time, when large piece of wood would fall from the ceiling, and aimed his attack at it, sending it through Ringo's hand into his collarbone and paralyzing him,despite his attempt to defend himself.

** 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.
