* All of the events within the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 ''{{Shinobi}}'' turn out to be one big BatmanGambit orchestrated by the FinalBoss Hiruko: He manipulated Hotsuma into defeating Yatsurao so that the villain could absorb the countless number of souls that were subsequently released from the fallen giant. And he intended from the very beginning for Hotsuma to gather all of the souls of each foe he had sent to take him out, at which point he'd defeat Hotsuma and take all those souls for himself.

** 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.

* In the horror game ''VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs'', one of these is actually pulled on the player. Early on, the player finds themselves in an office and seemingly a dead end--as well as a gun hanging on the wall. The Amnesia series became famous because the player was never able to arm up to face monsters, and so naturally, most players try to grab the gun. Interacting with it reveals that it's actually a lever and opens up a secret passage out of the office.

Added DiffLines:

* The whole modern day plot of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is [[spoiler: Zelda & to a lesser extent her father,]] pulling off an elaborate one on [[spoiler: Ganon & Link]].[[spoiler: 100 years ago, in the game, when Ganon struck Zelda put one into action by having Link sealed away in the chamber of resurrection, giving several people orders to follow when he woke up and knowing that Link would come for her. During that time she held Ganon from achieving his goal of forming a new human looking body from inside him, knowing he would not (or possibly could not) kill her. Roham plays the role of preparing a revived Link by acting as a TricksterMentor to get him back up to speed before revealing the truth of their roles. Only because Link acts as the Hero they knew him as, frees the four divine beast and comes to kill Ganon does their plan work. Ganon meanwhile doesn't act directly against Link during the whole plot after the attack 100 years ago, seemingly not realizing what Zelda, Roham and Link are up to or believes it's a fool's errand.]]

* In VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV, particularly in ''Kinsglaive'', Niflheim's conquest of Insomnia invariably depended on a complex chain of events that ultimately leave the king and crystal unguarded, that could have gone wrong at any point. The fact that they have numerous moles in Insomnia and among the Glaives helped.

* The ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' games used these a few times.
** In [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney the first game]], Manfred von Karma had one of these as a backup plan, in case something went wrong (which, for him, has happened once in his 40 years as a prosecutor). [[spoiler:If he failed to convict Edgeworth for the murder on Gourd Lake, he was hoping that he would confess to the DL-6 incident. He did, just as planned.]]
** In case 1-5, the main character himself pulled a beautiful one against [[spoiler: Damon Gant. He used a legal loophole to withhold a piece of evidence that would have otherwise cleared Gant of the murder. The angry Gant then confessed about everything short of the murder itself to get himself off the hook. Then Wright shows the evidence, which made said confession to incriminate him of the murder.]]
** [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]], ManipulativeBastard that he is, used one to hinder his rival by [[spoiler: confessing that he had previously been in a relationship with his manager. Since his rival was currently in a relationship with his manager, he broke up out of pride. Having been heartbroken twice by the same man, she commited suicide.]]
** And in ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigations 2'' [[spoiler: The ''ENTIRE GAME'' turns out to the result of the BigBad pointing Edgeworth at the people they want revenge on. The final case isn't so much a proper case is it is piecing together all the loose ends of the previous cases and realising they all point to one person.]]
** Half of ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' is about Apollo being manipulated by [[TheChessmaster Phoenix]] in his bid to reform the justice system and clear his own name. It starts when Phoenix is framed for murder by [[spoiler:his "friend", Kristoph Gavin]], whom he calls to defend him in court, but then get suspicious when Kristoph lets slip something about the death in the call, so he insists on having ''Apollo'' defend him instead, intending to [[spoiler:manipulate the trial to get Apollo to prove Gavin did it]]. And since [[spoiler:Apollo has now put his own boss in jail for murder]] this means Phoenix is now able to take Apollo under his wing to groom as his successor. Phoenix has come a long way since the first game.
