* ''{{Film/Mythica}}'': [[spoiler: Gojun Pye]] teleports Szorlok into another dimension devoid of life where he fights him to a standstill. Szorlok then can only draw life force from him when his power is depleted to teleport away. [[spoiler: Gojun]] then sends his soul into Szorlok during this, so later he can control Szorlok for just long enough to let Marek kill him.

** He likely pulled one in [[Film/{{Tron}} the first film]] which crossed over into XanatosGambit. Suspicious of Master Control and Ed Dillinger, he began work on an independently-running security program (the title character). He dutifully submitted all of the necessary memos and paperwork and kept his conduct impeccable while keeping on good terms with the company founder Walter Gibbs, probably using methods that would bypass Master Control's notice and knowing Dillinger wouldn't read them. When things finally came to a head and he lost access to Tron, he explained to Dillinger what Tron could do. If Dillinger fired Alan, Gibbs would stick up for him and start investigating. If Dillinger deleted Tron without firing Alan, Gibbs would also investigate. If Alan were allowed to finish his software (which is what happened), then Dillinger and Master Control were going to be shut down and exposed. It's made explicit in the {{Novelization}} that Dillinger considered Alan BeneathSuspicion until he and Master Control realize they got utterly ''played.''

* ''Film/Spotlight'': Garabedian explains to Rezendes that when the church's lawyers file a motion opposing his motion, he can then file an opposition brief with all the documents the reporter has been trying to get attached as exhibits, thus putting them into the public record.

* A likely one with Alan's scene in ''Film/TronLegacy'': Alan was paged the ''previous'' night from Flynn Sr.'s shuttered arcade, but he holds off on telling Sam until ''after'' the kid pulls his annual stunt. Now, the Encom board is in disarray, cleaning up after Sam leaked the "secure" OS all over the Internet. Sam is clearly going to have the topic of his DisappearedDad on his mind, and Alan chooses his words carefully to goad Sam into investigating, which leads to [[spoiler: Sam taking the company back from the execs, and Alan becoming the real power behind the throne, and both of them getting a measure of closure over what happened to Flynn.]]

** Justified by the fact that the cabin is constantly being flooded with some sort of behaviour-altering gas which makes them behave exactly as the BatmanGambit requires, with the exception of Marty, who for unforeseen reasons is immune.

** [[spoiler:Snoke]] is playing this throughout ''[[Film/StarWarsTheLastJedi The Last Jedi]]'' and possibly before as well. [[spoiler:Firstly, he taunts Kylo about his weakness, knowing it would stir up his anger and push him too kill Leia, destroying the Reistance leadership. Then, he links Kylo and Rey, knowing that Rey would appeal too Kylo's light side and would come too the Supremacy to help him. Then Kylo would kill Rey, which would purge any remnants of the Light Side left in him, which in turn would bring Skywalker back into the fray having lost his apprentice and sister, and Snoke would kill him too. However, he is completely wrong on all fronts about Kylo, who doesn't kill Leia(although his accompanying TIE Pilots come ''extremely'' close) and kills Snoke when he's so sure Kylo's with him he doesn't notice Luke's lightsaber spinning round before it stabs him in the gut.]]

* In ''Film/MaryPoppins'', the title character (apparently) pulls this on Mr. Banks. First, she puts the idea in his head that he should take his children on an outing to the bank. Then she tells the children all about the bird woman, whose hang out is conveniently on the way to the bank, and how cool it would be to give her their money. What ensues could only have been Mary's plan.
