* 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.

plays it in another angle. While locked in the Facility, Yusei is forced into a duel with the head jailer. 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.

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.
** There's an example before that, way back in episode two. Yusei duels a guy who uses Insect cards, and had a Spell Card on the field (Ant Lion's Vengeance/Retribution of the Ant Lion) that damages a player whenever their monster goes to the Graveyard. Yusei pulls off a combo that destroys all three of his opponent's monsters, and lets his own Spell card do the rest. (Given that the guy ''purposely'' destroys one of his own Insects earlier in the duel to use its effect, he's obviously not entirely clear on how his own card works; long story short, he was an IneffectualSympatheticVillain, more or less.)

** Arguably, this is how Yusei defeated Jack the first time. Jack was in his pre-HeelFaceTurn days, and tried to {{troll}} Yusei by summoning Red Dragon Archfiend ''and'' Stardust Dragon, the latter of which is Yusei's ace card that Jack stole. Unfortunately for him, Yusei was expecting that, activates Harmonium Mirror to seize control of it, and wins. (Well, he would if the duel hadn't been interrupted, but Yusei won in Jack's eyes, [[VillainousBreakdown much to his horror]].)

** 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.

* ''Anime/TransformersArmada''
** One episode has a schemer by the name of Thrust. Sideways convinces the guy to side with giant, planet-eating Transformer Unicron. While everyone else is trying to defend their home planet from Unicron, Thrust is standing on the big guy's shoulder. Unicron starts to transform, and Thrust is knocked off balance and crushed in one of Unicron's joints.
** To make it even more ironic, Thrust was in the middle of [[EvilGloating gloating]] to Galvatron (whom he'd betrayed) when this happened; he ended up begging Galvatron to help him, but Galvatron simply walked away, leaving him to his fate.

** It gets even better, when you realize, that said fallen friend used Pucci's ability to create disc, that would give Emporio his powers. In fact, Emporio doesn't even tried to use it at first - Pucci accidentally pushed it in his body, while he was trying to catch him, activating ability and giving his victim ability to defeat him.

** Moria uses his 'Shadows Asguard' technique in order to absorb one thousand shadows on the island to fight Luffy. While he's much bigger and stronger, he's also slower and struggling to keep the shadows in. Luffy defeats him handily through a combination of Gear 2nd and Gear 3rd.

Also, Moria had spent the last part of the fight taunting Luffy with the fact that NoOntologicalInertia ''wouldn't'' apply to his zombies, and he'd still have all their shadows and they would most likely die to the rising sun, but Shadows Asgard brings them all into one place, allowing Luffy to literally beat the shadows out of him.

** As seen on the main page's picture, Frieza was cut in half by his own attack (he even lampshades it; earlier in the fight Goku tries to trick Frieza into hitting himself with the Death Saucer and Frieza sees through it, but later on he loses track of his attack and flies into its path all by himself) which led to his first demise (though he got better later on).
