* In ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', Eggman notices Sonic and his friends entering Space Station ARK with two Chaos Emeralds. Having already obtained six of the seven, Eggman assumes that the eighth is a fake designed to stop him from using the Eclipse Cannon. Eggman captures Amy Rose and forces Sonic and Tails to surrender the Chaos Emerald for her safety. As Sonic goes to give Eggman the fake Chaos Emerald, Eggman gloats that Sonic won't be able to fool him with the fake. When Tails asks how he knew, Sonic's incredulous "TAILS!" confirms Eggman's suspicions as he gloats "Because you just ''told me'', fox boy!"

*** The in-game book ''A Game At Dinner'' has Hlaalu Helseth, eventual King of Morrowind, pulling one of these to root out a spy. Combing it with BluffingTheMurderer, Helseth implies to his assembled dinner guests that he put poison on the cutlery of someone spying against him, then invites any spies present to take a dose of the antidote, kept in a tureen at the center of the table. One of the spies loses his nerve and drinks, only for Helseth to reveal that no-one's cutlery was poisoned. The poison was, in fact, the 'antidote' the spy was just bluffed into drinking.

* [[spoiler:Mephiles]] plays this on most of the cast of ''VideoGame/Sonic06'', too the point when it becomes ComplexityAddiction. [[spoiler:Firstly, he brings Silver too the present too try and kill Sonic, knowing Silver would do without questioning due to his nativity, and even when Silver ''does'' see through Mephiles' lies he focuses on saving the future instead stopping Mephiles. Meanwhile, Shadow and Eggman are on a wild goose chase for him, which again is slowed down by Silver getting in the way of Shadow at Radical Train and Eggman having other priorities, and Sonic and Elise are left alone so they can bond. When they ''do'' bond, Mephiles kills Sonic too make Elise cry and release Iblis, thus becoming Solaris again.]]

* [[spoiler:Dickson]] attempts one near the end of ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles''. [[spoiler:He assumes that, due too the amount of crap he's put Bionis through, Shulk would Kill Egil, which meant that the only major opposition too Zanza would be Mayneth, who wouldn't put up much of a fight anyway. This backfires when Shulk doesn't kill Egil, and although Zanza is released and Shulk and Mayneth are killed, Egil punches a hole in the Bionis which allows the party too enter the Bionis Interior once Shulk comes back.]]

* [[spoiler:Cassette Guy]] pulls off one of these in ''VideoGame/FreddyFazbearsPizzeriaSimulator''. [[spoiler:The whole game was a trap to lure [[BigBad Springtrap]], [[DaddysLittleVillain Scrap Baby]], [[IAmLegion Molten Freddy]], and [[BigGood Lefty]] to a fake pizzeria and burn it down, finally ending the horror of the ''Franchise/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' franchise and putting the souls of the children murdered by the Purple Man to rest.]]
