* In ''FanFic/NeonExodusEvangelion'', [[spoiler:Lucifer (also known as Unit 01)]] absorbs DJ after the final battle in the series, then stays passive afterward so he can be piloted by one of Natlateth's cloned pilots. Asuka almost screws this up by [[spoiler:breaking into the SEELE-controlled Geofront and starting Lucifer up to try and talk to DJ]], but [[spoiler:manages to avoid it by taking over his body directly and piloting him like a production-model Eva]]. The culmination of the plan is [[spoiler:DJ taking over in the middle of the final combat, so Natlateth stabs Lucifer with the Lance of Longinus. Since DJ is Longinus, and Lucifer became Unit 01 after sustaining wounds by the same Lance while trying to redeem himself, the outcome is that the Redemption is finished]]. If [[spoiler:Natlateth hadn't thought Lucifer was truly dead and had left him at the Geofront]], the plan would have failed.

The culmination of the plan to help Shinji stop being scared of their daughter: she pretends she is [[spoiler:DJ taking over in the middle of the final combat, not ready to babysit Ryuko a second time so Natlateth stabs Lucifer with the Lance of Longinus.

If [[spoiler:Natlateth hadn't forced to babysit her alone. Her scheme was supposed to be a secret, but Shinji saw through her excuses and he thought Lucifer was truly dead and had left him at the Geofront]], the her plan would have failed.was obvious.

* ''Fanfic/ThisBites'': In Chapter 21, Miss Friday corners Cross and Soundbite, but she doesn't know which of two curtains they're hiding behind. Soundbite produces an obvious sneeze from the curtain where they're hiding, prompting Miss Friday to shoot up the other stall, having learned not to trust her ears from the last encounter with the pair. Once she's out of bullets, Cross takes her down.

* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'': Medusa has one going throughout the Cobra Island as it pertains to the main group of heroes, orchestrating events so they would react in ways she expected and behave right like she wanted or needed. The aftermaths of the fight against Atlas and the first game notably hinge on Maka and her friends’ sense of duty.

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': [[EldritchAbomination Nylarathotep]] invaded Asuka's dreams and he [[spoiler:tried to make her believe that he was the true founder of her religion so that she despaired and joined him.]] It nearly worked, but a third party showed her that Nylarathotep lied.



-->'''Kyon:''' Haruhi's going to burst into the middle of the meeting and be really pissed off about not being involved.
-->'''Koizumi:''' Ah... You're certain?
-->'''Kyon:''' She absolutely will if you send a text to her just before we enter the Student Council room. That should give Kimidori-san enough time to state her goals and reasons, but not to actually do anything before Haruhi shows up.

[[AC: ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'']]
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6051938/1/The-Sealed-Kunai The Sealed Kunai]]'', Tsunade makes the canon bet with Naruto about him mastering the Rasengan in a week's time, but doesn't know that Naruto purposefully used an incomplete Rasengan against her. He's had it down pat for a while now but wanted to use that time to relearn some of his jutsu from his time as a ROOT agent. He even admits to Jiraiya that he didn't show her the complete Rasengan because then Tsunade would set another bet that he'd actually have to work at.

* In ''Fanfic/ThinkingInLittleGreenBoxes'' Harry concocts a couple of plans that just involve having SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom and [[ComicBook/ThePunisher the Punisher]] doing what they do naturally when given the incentive.

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'':
** Shortly after meeting Asuka, Shinji mentioned his mother was dead, expecting that Asuka was prompted to ask him about it since she was also an orphan.
** Kaji came up with a plan to help Shinji to go with Asuka to the school dance. His plot consisted in Shinji making several apparently innocent but carefully calculated remarks that, according to his knowledge of Asuka's personality, would prompt her to ask Shinji out.

* In ''Fanfic/TheLondonSyndicate'', it turns out that [[spoiler: the titular rival gang operating right in Poirot's neighborhood is just a bunch of disguised members of the syndicate there to distract him from their real smuggling operations]].

* ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'':
** Gendo's plan relied on nobody interfering either because they were too spineless -Shinji- or they could be intimidated -Kaji, Fuyutsuki- or they had no reason to disobey him -Rei-. When several of them resolved to fight him, his plan fell apart.
** A benign –and funny- example in chapter 6: Asuka did not want Shinji and Rei walking together to headquarters, so she pretended passing out, hoping that Shinji stayed with her for a while and Rei left alone. Shinji picked her, laid her down on her bed and left with Rei anyway [[spoiler:or so Asuka thought. In reality both kids stayed with her.]]



* Bluepencil's ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' fic ''Fanfic/{{Shinji and Warhammer 40k}}'' is full of both [[BatmanGambit gambits]] and [[GambitRoulette roulettes]]. Made even better by the fact that neither Gendo ''or'' [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness SEELE]] are willing to admit the possibility that ''neither'' is manipulating Shinji. Let alone the fact that he's manipulating ''both them, and the Japanese government'' against each other.
