* AdvantageBall: Goes with {{Flynning}} as always--Inigo and the Man in Black trade the ball back and forth during their duel; most notably, they each grab it when [[IAmNotLeftHanded declaring their handedness]]. Westley's ToThePain speech and its results serve to swipe the ball from Humperdinck and return it to the good guys.

* SelfPoisoningGambit: After Vizzini switches the cups, he carefully watches the Man in Black's reaction to his choice. When The Man in Black shows no hesitation to drink, Vizzini concludes that the Man in Black thought he was getting the "safe" cup, which Vizzini now has due to his earlier switch. Vizzini happily downs his wine, unaware that he had been fooled and was falling victim to this trope instead.
