* ''FanFic/TheStarsWillAidTheirEscape'': [[spoiler:For all his GenreSavvy, [[BigBad Herald]] ends up being defeated by several of his own actions throughout the story. [[KickTheDog Throwing the jar containing the CMC's souls over the waterfall]] not only allows them to be retrieved, but takes away the one thing that might have stopped Pinkie Pie from banishing him to outside of reality the same way he did it to the Princesses. That action in and of itself ends up costing him, as it allows them to fight him at full strength without having to worry about hurting their subjects as they would in Equestria, allowing them to begin winning the fight. This also buys the Mane Six enough time to kill the [[{{Mooks}} Dark Young]] and stop [[SealedEvilInACan Shub-Niggurath's summoning]].]]

* In ''[[http://draco664.fanficauthors.net/The_Widower_Maker/The_Widower_Maker/ The Widower Maker]]'', Harry uses a poorly-worded Marriage Law that forces half-bloods and Muggleborns to marry into Pureblood families (and turned into all but slaves) to get scot free with killing all the women he is forced to marry and their families. And then uses ''that'' to ensure the law is repealed.

* ''[[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.]]

* ''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.
