** Mikazuki and Akihiro of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' fight to survive and crush their enemies, they wouldn't question the so-called codes of honor of Gjallarhorn and simply shoot them when they are talking, crushing them when they are ''outside'' the cockpit. And should you wronged them or killed any of their brothers, Mika would shred you into piece without caring who you are.

And should you wronged them or killed any of their brothers, Mika would shred you into piece without caring who you are. One memorable moment late in the first season saw a group of Gjallarhorn pilots doing a sort of role call mid-battle...and Akihiro shoots one of them before he can finish his sentence.

** [[LovableRogue Ganju]] knows he's not strong enough to defeat [[AlmightyJanitor Yumichika]]. He uses every dirty trick in the book hoping that Yumichika will drop his guard because it's so obvious they're not equals in battle. It's his only chance, it allows him to [[GenreSavvy target]] Yumichika's [[TheDandy hair]] with a firework, and it works.

* Qwenther from LightNovel/HeavyObject is this in spades. His default strategy is too use more C4 than an enlisted student has any right to carry into combat. However, when dealing with unstoppable super weapons like Objects, you need to know every trick in the book. His accomplishments include: sabotaging the self-destruct sequence of an Object and then setting it off with C4, exploiting loopholes in an Object's AI control program to make it completely freeze up, using gunshots as Morse code to communicate the enemy's position to an allied Object, using diamonds as improvised shrapnel to destroy a heavily armored mining powered suit, and immobilizing an enemy Object with an IR Jammer. And all that still doesnt compare to the time he defeated one of the most powerful Objects ever seen in the novels [[spoiler: by using [[MundaneSolution bed sheets, lemons and milk.]]]]

* Issei Hyoudou in ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' fights dirty. He'll try to exploit any weakness in any situation regardless of what enemies do. He'll also have their guard down just in time for him to do something crazy enough to work. The most shining example would be when he took out Riser with two holy bottles, a PoweredArmor, and luring him into a trap.

* Often done in the ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' anime as a strategy against villains such as Team Rocket. While they themselves often play dirty, the heroes aren't against using larger numbers or trickery that doesn't abide by battle rules. As they lampshade at times, why should they fight fair against the bad guys?

** Juda takes the cake. Rei, a superior opponent, is out for his blood but is set to die in three days? Easy, he tells his head subordinate he's leaving for another town specifically to do this, waits for a pissed Kenshiro to torture him into saying in which town he's hiding in, and as soon as Kenshiro and Rei leave he calmly walks back at home and asks if his subordinate ''really'' expected him to tell him where he actually was going (he had not left the town at all, he was just hiding ''across the street''). And when Rei managed to prolong his life indefinitely, he accepts the challenge... And has his subordinates ''blow up a dam to flood the place and impair Rei's mobility'', as Rei needed to touch his enemy to kill him but Yuuda could easily but slowly cut him from distance (and the water actually increased the power of the attack). The ''only'' reasons Rei won was that Yuuda interrupted that attack to brag before using a similar but stronger one, giving Rei the time to use his hands to ''push on the water and jump'', and, after that, Yuuda froze up seeing the beauty of Rei's attack.

*** ''All'' Hokuto and Nanto practitioners, with such highlights as a technique to grab an enemy arrow and throw it back [[OffhandBackhand without looking]] and techniques specifically made to sneak up on someone and detecting someone trying this. In fact, the only reason Hokuto and Nanto practitioners apart from Jagi and Yuuda aren't obviously this is that they usually find themselves in situations where they lack something to bash the enemy with, it could cause collateral damage, or are fighting an opponent that is so good that normal tricks are next to useless. In fact, the above-mentioned Jagi's reliance on those tricks is seen as him trying and ''failing'' to compensate for his own weakness (the needle-spitting trick was pulled on Kenshiro during a spar. At the same time, Kenshiro mock-performed a lethal move on him), and during their fight Kenshiro actually chastised Shin when a {{Mook}} tried to sneak up on him not for being underhanded but for actually expecting it would work (Yuuda, on the other hand, is so good that his tricks work even on opponents that would usually not be even slowed down).
