* In ''Anime/MyHeroAcademia'', the HeroKiller [[NinetiesAntiHero Stain]] has a Quirk that allows him to temporarily freeze someone in place by ingesting their blood. After Midoriya, Todoroki, and Iida manage to defeat and subdue him, Stain suddenly regains consciousness, breaks free from his bonds, puts the ''absolute fear of God'' into the onlooking heroes... then suddenly freezes. A rib broken in the earlier battle had pierced through his lung, causing him to ingest his own blood and get frozen in place by his own Quirk.[[note]]Given that he was [[BloodFromTheMouth bleeding from the mouth]] seconds before his initial defeat, it's implied that this is how he lost in the first place.[[/note]]

** Frieza's brother Cooler was hoisted even higher. As shown in ''Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge'', he and his squadron were watching as his younger brother destroyed the homeworld of the Saiyans, and had a chance to fire on an escaping space-pod. Cooler let it go, saying his brother was "too soft" for letting a child escape and it was his problem. Years later, when he went gunning after Goku to avenge Frieza, he was soundly trounced by the child he allowed to escape, who happened to be Goku. (As incredible irony, his realization of his mistake would not come until had clearly lost the battle with Goku, and was mere seconds away [[HurledIntoTheSun from hitting the Earth's sun.]])

** Also from Part 4, Rohan is a mangaka with the ability to open up anyone who looks at his manga like a book. On top of incapacitating the victim, he can also read their minds, which is how he comes to discover Josuke's BerserkButton about people insulting his hair from another character. When Josuke figures out what causes the Stand to affect him, he advances on Rohan with his eyes closed, and though Rohan pushing his BerserkButton does finally get him to open his eyes, he's then too blinded by rage to actually ''look'' at the manga he's holding out, and Rohan quickly gets clobbered.

** A major part of the Dressrosa arc was the tournament at Corrida Colosseum. Doflamingo enticed Luffy into entering the tournament by offering up a prize he knew Luffy would not be able to resist: The Flame-Flame Fruit previously wielded by his brother. As planned, Luffy enters the tournament which keeps him out of the way, but the arrival of [[spoiler:Luffy's ''other'' brother]] enables Luffy to leave and help his crew knowing the fruit is in good hands. Later on, when it all hits the fan, the majority of Doflamingo's officers are defeated by the top tier fighters from the tournament who sided with Luffy. Almost none of these individuals would even have ''been'' in Dressrosa had it not been for the tournament and the prize being offered.

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': It is already ironic that Kirei Kotomine was killed with the Azoth dagger he gave Rin years before. What is even more interesting is that the dagger was given to him in the ''[[LightNovel/FateZero prequel]]'' by Rin's father, Tokiomi Tohsaka who was Kirei's teacher. It was then used to stab Tokiomi by Kirei while Tohsaka's Servant Archer (''LightNovel/FateZero'''s Archer, aka, Gilgamesh) watched impassively.

Saber then notes that with a wide open space, she can finally unleash [[SwordBeam Excalibur]] without risk of collateral damage, and obliterates Rider and her Pegasus.

** Team Rocket's been hit with things like this from time to time. In one instance, at the end of the Johto arc, they capture Pikachu using a massive magnet, causing him to fall ill and begin to dangerously overcharge. In the very first episode of the Hoenn arc, they capture the ill Pikachu again, using a machine to absorb Pikachu's electricity, not knowing that all they've done is helped him release the excess electricity he had built up that ''they'' caused.

** Jiemma, the head of the Sabretooth guild, is a SocialDarwinist who imposes his doctrine upon his guild, outright stating that "no weaklings are allowed in Sabretooth." Later, when he kills Lector right in front of Sting, Sting is pissed off enough that he takes Jiemma down with one blow; Minerva subsequently kicks him out of Sabretooth in accordance with Jiemma's own rules, as he had proved himself to be weaker than Sting.

** This could also be construed as how Team [=5Ds=] defeated Team Ragnarok. Harold's Trap Card, Gjallarhorn, would have banished all three of his Divine Beast monsters in three and then deal damage to Yusei equal to their ATK, ''and'' make them and Harold nearly invincible until that happened. Yusei was able to turn this card against him by summoning Shooting Star Dragon for the first time. This causes Harold to use his Odin's Eye Trap, which again, is what Yusei was expecting; he counters with a Trap of his own to shanghai control of the Trap, making the three Divine monsters vulnerable; a second Trap causes their Scores to drop to zero, meaning when the effect of Gjallarhorn finally activates, Yusei takes no damage at all. Harold, however, is now defenseless, and wide open.
