* In the second season of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Judai (Jaden) dueled X, a Pro Duelist who used a Mill Deck; Judai won by decking ''him'' out. X was a very [[{{Jerkass}} unpleasant person]] (even Edo (Aster), who witnessed the duel, didn't like him), so this was sort of poetic justice. (Of course, Judai does this using one of his Neo-Spacians, and a common theme with his duels is that the villains never understand how they work and never take them into consideration. Even the most CrazyPrepared villain can never prepare for something he knows nothing about.)

* ** In the Waking the Dragons arc, the Seal of Orichalcos was an utterly overpowered card, but once it was activated, whoever lost the Duel lost their soul. There were only two instances onscreen where the person who activated the card didn't lose the Duel, and one of those was a draw.
* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'':
** In season one,
the second of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Shadow Riders]], Camula, had a card called Illusion Gate. It destroyed all monsters her opponent controlled and then let her summon one monster from her opponent's Graveyard. The cost? If she lost the Duel, her soul would be forfeit to the [[EldritchAbomination Sacred Beasts]]. She normally used her Shadow Charm to offer someone else's soul instead, but when Judai (Jaden)'s own charm cancelled out hers, she was left with no choice but to stake her own soul. And naturally, she lost.

** Afterward, bitter over their loss, they hire a Bosozoku gang to beat up Project D as revenge. This backfires when it's revealed that, not only is the gang from the same province as Project D, and are big fans, but the gang's leader also used to run with Keisuke's old crew back when he was a delinquent, and he is ''not'' happy that he was hired to beat on his former boss. For this, Project D is allowed to leave unmolested while the cheaters are left to the wrath of their own hired muscle.

* ''Manga/InitialD'': In ''Fourth Stage'', the cheating Saitama Lan Evo racing team has this happen to them twice:
** First, they sabotage Keisuke's practice run with an oil slick, causing him to crash and crippling his FD. The oil slick wasn't entirely cleaned from the road afterwards, and during Takumi's downhill run against them, the Evo driver's front wheel catches some of the leftover spill and causes him to lose traction. While this doesn't cause him to crash like Keisuke, it does give Takumi a window to pass him and win the race.

** In the quarterfinals of Battle City, Mai attempts to defeat Marik this way, using the effect of Amazoness Chain Master to steal Ra. However, it backfires on her because she can't read the text on the card, which is needed in order to command it.
** When Yami Bakura duels Yami Marik, he loses because of this. In the anime, he tries to win this way by using Dark Designator in order to add Ra to Yami Marik's hand, and then Exchange in order to steal Ra. However, the moment he tried to summon Ra, Marik activated a trap card that drained Bakura's sacrifices of their attack power, meaning Ra had zero attack points. He then sacrificed it to summon a new monster, which allowed Marik to revive Ra with Monster Reborn, [[IronicEcho the card Marik took from Bakura because of Exchange]]. The manga plays it out a bit differently, but is still ultimately this trope. After using Dark Designator to add Ra to Marik's hand, Bakura activates Multiple Destruction, a hand destruction card, sending Ra to the graveyard, which gives Marik the chance to revive it with Monster Reborn. In both versions, Bakura was unaware of Ra's additional powers.

* In the second season of ''Anime/YuGiOh'', when Yugi dueled Marik's mind-slave Strings, the only way he was able to beat his invincible card setup was to use it to his own advantage so that his monster would be destroyed and regenerated an infinite number of times within a single turn, and due to one of the effects Marik had on the field, Strings was forced to keep drawing cards from his deck every time the monster regenerated, until he ran out of cards and lost the duel by default.

His Iron Chain strategy is to exhaust the opponent's deck, but Yusei reveals that his last two cards (from a deck all cobbled together from other jailed duelists) actually ''depended'' on a high graveyard count, and he wins the duel with them.
