* In ''WebVideo/{{PATHCO}}'''s 'Welcome to Ossenheim' module, the party was issued a challenge by one of the Buckheart elite to capture a baby deer from the garden and bring it back to her. Whilst this was the challenge to the characters, the true challenge to the players involved trying to prevent the deer from being ''eaten''. The DungeonMaster knew that there was no way Dave and Thyra, or indeed their players, would ever let an innocent young creature be hurt, and thus a far more ''interesting'' problem-solving exercise came about.

* At the SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy in the ''WhateleyUniverse'', there are Combat Finals at the end of Fall term 2006. In one chapter of Joe Gunnarson's ''Call the Thunder'', Diamondback finds herself teamed with the Supervillain Hekate, who everyone in the entire school knows will backstab Diamondback first chance she gets. Diamond lays a very cunning BatmanGambit that only works ''if Hekate shafts her as soon as she gets the chance''. Hekate grabs the VillainBall for everything she's worth, leading to a very satisfying conclusion.

* The BigBad of ''WebAnimation/BrokenSaints'' plays with this a bit: [[spoiler: He sends out early test signals of the transmission he plans to use to TakeOverTheWorld (sort of), knowing that there will be those who receive it and make the pilgrimage from wherever they live to his EvilTowerOfOminousness. The inquisitive minds who would accomplish such a journey are exactly the people he wants [[WeCanRuleTogether as his first apostles]], to help him spread his gospel further. It makes more sense in context.]]
* {{Maddox}} managed to pull this one off against a hate-mailer when she insulted him, calling him an "Angry Bitter Man". Instead of ripping apart the hate-mail like he usually does, he instead responded to the hate-mail in an unconventional way by saying how he was [[FreudianExcuse abused as a child]] and his writing is a way of expressing himself. She responded back to him in a somewhat understanding manner, only to have Maddox responded back: "Just Kidding. Tool."
* {{The Slender Man|Mythos}} himself pulled one of these in ''Blog/WhatYouAreInTheDark''. [[spoiler: He took advantage of his own viral nature by implanting false memories into Reach, using him to "infect" the bloggers(as well as his "fandom" in general) with the idea of Revenants: supposedly humans horribly transformed into Slender Man's super-powered elite soldiers. However, he didn't realize that memories cannot be truly erased... only hidden. Reach eventually uncovered memories of his brainwashing and realized the lie. There are no revenants, only people brainwashed into thinking they are and Slender Man's enemies who believe it. This was done to scatter their attention away from Slim himself. What he'll do now that the illusion is uncovered is anyone's guess.]]
** {{The Slender Man|Mythos}} is, by default, a master of these (and knows exactly where and when to pull them) - why? ''[[BeingWatched He could be watching you right now as you read this...]]'' [[ParanoiaFuel and you'll never know until it's too late.]] How many people does he know well enough to pull a BatmanGambit off against? ''Everyone ever.'' [[spoiler:[[BeingWatched Including]] [[ParanoiaFuel you.]]]]
* In Literature/LandGames, Reckes uses a BatmanGambit to trick Mei into [[spoiler:betraying her allies]] using her feelings for him against her.

* A CrowningMomentOfAwesome in ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' is the Emperor taking back his MagnificentBastard title with one of those. Needing to get rid of Inquisition's worst members, he [[spoiler:orders the Inquisition disbanded, knowing that those truly loyal to him and his job will carry on, while those deranged will come and storm the Eternity Gate to "rescue" him. Then he has Magnus on hand at all times so that when he tells Karamazov to charge him, Magnus snaps and teleports them all to the Warp, handily solving the problem.]] And given how this ended up, he may not be done yet...
* [[TheChessmaster Mackenzie Zales]] pulls off one that sets in motion the end of Season 3 and the events of Season 4 in ''WebAnimation/TheMostPopularGirlsInSchool''. Her plan involved her best friend [[TheLancer Brittnay Matthews]], the GreaterScopeVillain Jenna Darabond and the former AlphaBitch Cameron Van Buren. It involved [[spoiler:burning Brittnay's car so she would blame Jenna and punch her in the face, thus causing a parent-teacher meeting to which she knew Shay's mother wouldn't attend, so she called Shay's sister, Cameron and Jenna's father, knowing she would seduce him. Later, she took Deandra's robotic arm and falsely tried to break Jenna and Justin off, making her admit she already confessed all her crimes to him, including burning the mall, which she recorded with Deandra's arm's voice recorder. Ultimately, when Cameron's and Jenna's father's relationship came to light, he resigned of his post as Senator, leaving Jenna without her political protection and getting arrested for arson.]]
* In appropriate fashion, Joker pulls one on Sweet Tooth in ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle''. [[spoiler:At Sweet Tooth's mercy, Joker persuades him to get out of his armored ice cream truck turned mech, and gut him with his own hands through a speech that exploits his love of suffering. But just as Sweet Tooth is ready to finish him off, Joker whips out some of his lethal laughing gas, causing them to laugh hysterically as the former dies slowly, apparently leaving his face a permenant smile behind his already grinning mask.]]
