** On a bigger scale, Ezio might not have been so fixated on wiping out the Italian [[KnightsTemplar Templars]] if they hadn't tried to remove the threat posed by his Assassin family.

* In ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'', the nastiest thing the [[FlunkyBoss Qurupeco]] can do to a hunter is call for the [[TheDreaded Deviljho]], a massive Tyrannosaurus-like monster. This naturally tends to be a suicidal move by the Qurupeco as the Deviljho is extremely powerful and aggressive and will often inflict a CurbStompBattle on the dumb Qurupeco who called for it.

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'': The first court case reveals that Sayaka fell victim to this, as she had originally invited Leon over to kill him and frame Makoto (who had agreed to swap rooms for a night), but ended up having her wrist broken and weapon stolen by Leon, who stabbed her instead. Then again, [[TooDumbToLive why she thought she could take on a professional athlete]] (even with a surprise attack) is anyone's guess.

It should also be noted that the replica sword Leon used to defend himself and break her wrist was only in Makoto's room in the first place because Sayaka had earlier encouraged him to take it.

** The moves Mirror Move, Copycat (the user uses the move last used by the target), and Snatch (the user steals the effects of the status move used by the target, usually a healing or stat-changing move) can occasionally lead to this trope. Better yet is the priority version of the first, Me First, which lets the user make the attack the opponent is ''about'' to make.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'', Navarro's plan is to take the gold statue and use its mutating effect as a weapon to be sold to the highest bidder, but he is killed by the statue when it is pushed off the ship and a rope attached to it gets tangled around his leg, dragging him to the bottom of the ocean with it.

** In the ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi Mario & Luigi]]'' series, many enemy attacks could be countered by sending their own attacks back to them.

** In ''[[VideoGame/LuigisMansion Luigi's Mansion]]'', one of the portrait ghosts, Slim Bankshot, is a billiards master. He'll shoot billiards around the room when you enter, and very rarely, one of them will hit him as he walks around the table. You're supposed to [[FreudWasRight suck up the balls]] and shoot them back at him, though, so it counts either way.

** In ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'', Pinna Park has Electrokoopas that attack Mario by hurling their electric shells at him, which fly a distance before returning to them. Spraying the Electrokoopa with F.L.U.D.D. while its shell is in mid-flight will lead to it electrocuting itself when the shell comes back.



* In pretty much any ''SuperMarioBros'' game, there will be at least one boss fight which can only by won by exploiting a key element that's right there in the boss fight room, sometimes because the boss is actively utilizing it against ''you''. The best example is probably stunning the Mecha-Koopas Bowser tosses at you at the end of ''SuperMarioWorld'' so you can throw them back at him.
