* The commanding members of Starscream's Brigade do this a lot in the ''{{Insecticomics}}''. Starscream pulled his biggest Batman when Thrust, unbeknownst to himself still under the virus-induced influence of Sideways, had the Constructicons build a Hydra Cannon to power up the Fallen. Starscream knew all about this and let it happen. However, at the last minute he swapped the Mini-Cons used to power the cannon with the knockoff Mexicons, which rather than amplifying the Fallen's power completely drained it. This left the servants of Unicron helpless to avoid having their afts kicked by the Brigade.

* Hawk from ''CityOfReality'' managed to outwit an enemy capable of MentalTimeTravel, and could deduce which iteration of his plan was going on from the baddie's initial reaction.

* One of the main characters of ''BlurTheLines'' (also a very NSFW comic), Rick (who is a chubby chaser), is very good at luring overweight straight men into sexual encounters without making them realize he is doing so, such as when he [[spoiler:convinced a straight man to give him oral sex to get back at his girlfriend]] [[http://www.blur-the-lines.com/?p=140]], or when he [[http://www.blur-the-lines.com/?p=287 bet a man at PAX that he couldn't roll four evens out of ten.]] (For losing that bet, Rick had to [[spoiler:give oral sex to every fat man in the room.]])

* In ''MaxOveracts'' this is how Janet convinces her mother to let her get her ears pierced. She convinces her brother to give his unrequited crush, Andi, a pair of fancy diamond earrings, knowing that [[{{Goth}} Andi]] won't really want them and that Max will go to his sister for present advice. So Janet picks out the earrings for Jacob who gives them to Andi, who gives them to Max who gives them to Janet, who's mother agrees to ear piercing because it would be a shame to leave them in the box.
* Practically [[TheChessmaster any]] plan enacted by [[DominicDeegan Dominic Deegan]]

* ''ButImACatPerson'' features [[CorruptPolitician Congressman Bennett]] trying to [[http://erinptah.com/catperson/comic/chapter-eight-page-5/ pull one of these on Ann Walker]], introducing a bill that will put limits on her with the assumption she will [[CorruptCorporateExecutive attempt to buy him off]] to get special treatment. She [[spoiler: easily turns it around on him, playing on his one-note conservative rhetoric to trap him into inadvertently promising her some benefits]].

* Lampshaded in ''{{Webcomic/Goblins}}''. When Thaco challenges Dellyn to a duel, ''both of them'' know that Thaco has some sort of trap planned. Nonetheless, Dellyn accepts when Thaco points out that Dellyn's only two options are accept the duel, or refuse the duel, order his men to kill Thaco instead and live with the reputation of not being able to kill a single old, frail goblin, and Dellyn's ego won't let him pick the second option.

* Ephemural orchestrates one of these in ''[[http://2kinds.com/ TwoKinds]]''. He/she/it erased Trace Legacy's memories in order to prevent him from killing a young Keidran girl named Flora, and then incited a number of incidents where Trace's SuperpoweredEvilSide emerged, generating mistrust between them, in order to eventually force Flora to return to her people and complete an arranged marriage with the prince of the Wolf Clan, thus uniting the Tiger and Wolf Clans into a force strong enough to resist the expansionistic human empire. The only thing that saved him/her/it from crossing over into GambitRoulette territory, is the fact that he/she/it has displayed literally divine powers, and could thus conceivably have arranged every apparently coincidental incident. Unfortunately for him/her/it, [[http://twokinds.comicgenesis.com/d/20050413.html somebody else had a stake in ThePlan as well]]...
