* In ''PhantomOfTheOpera'', Raoul and the others pressure a fearful Christine into performing the lead role in the opera that the Phantom has written. Knowing full well that the Phantom will attend if she performs, they plan to catch him then. While this might not be what the Phantom wants precisely, he has anticipated it, and as such, is able to disguise himself and abduct Christine.

the namespace stuff fixing, yo
* ''TwelfthNight'' has two of these, both of which go entirely according to plan. First, Maria [[LoveLetterLunacy plants a fake love letter]] to Malvolio from Olivia, instructing him to do ridiculous things in order to win her heart; this only works because Maria knows Malvolio is vain and self-deluding enough to eat it up. Later, Sir Toby has a little fun by pitting two known cowards against each other in a fight and then informing each duelist of his respective opponent's berserker tendencies. [[spoiler:Incidentally, Sir Toby and Maria end up [[UnholyMatrimony eloping]] by the end of the play, which just goes to show you that this trope can be a highly effective form of romantic bonding]].
