* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11772125/1/Metroid-Kamen-Rider-Generations-Full-Series Metroid: Kamen Rider Generations]]'' provides us a frighteningly karmic example: [[spoiler:In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11772125/118/Metroid-Kamen-Rider-Generations-Full-Series one chapter]], the [[SpotTheImpostor impostor]] [[Series/KamenRiderGhost Makoto Fukami]] shoots [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Mitsuzane]] from behind, not once, but '''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11772125/120/Metroid-Kamen-Rider-Generations-Full-Series twice!]]''' Which is a callback from episode 26 of ''Kamen Rider Gaim'' where he shoots Kouta in the back.]]
-->'''Mitsuzane:''' [[LampshadeHanging It's very haunting to think that I once shot my friend in the back would eventually bite me in the ass.]]

* In the MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha fanfic Infinity, Lindy spends most of chapter 25 getting smacked around by Precia. Near the end, she reveals that she's been sealing Precia's magic the whole time, and electrocutes her with all the magic Precia used during the fight.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'' has the next examples:
** In chapter 8, wanting to pay Rei back for ruining his latest "Annoy Asuka" ploy, Shinji nudges Asuka to take Rei to a shopping trip. Asuka bites the bait... but then she announces that he would carry their shopping bags.
--->The look on Shinji’s face would warm both Rei and Asuka for a long time as he was most definitely hoisted by his own petard.
** In chapter 14, Shinji realizes his planning and scheming has backfired completely.
--->Everything tied back to Shinji’s own scheming. He had been snared in a web of his own making. The phrase ‘hoisted by his own petard’ didn’t even begin to cover this sort of thing.
** Initially, Shinji wanted to get back at his father for abandoning him, but after a while he cast his planned revenge aside because he had found a real family. Then Gendo hurt his family to try to keep him under control. So Shinji ''hurt'' him back.

MarySue doesn't need to directly overpower canon characters to make FanFiction her own personal PowerFantasy; she can [[HoistByHisOwnPetard turn their powers against themselves]].
