* In the first episode of the ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' OVA series, Tenchi pulls this trick on Ryoko. He's quite surprised when it works. He figures that since she's been sealed for 700 years, maybe she predates the invention of the trick.

He figures that since she's been sealed for 700 years, maybe she predates the invention of the trick. It's also probable that, since she was only pretending to try to kill him, she deliberately bought the distraction in order to prolong the chase.

* ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' opened the series with this. Natsumi tries to get her paranormal-obsessed brother Fuyuki out of bed by pointing and shouting, "Look! An alien!" Suddenly, a section of the wall where she was pointing peels away, revealing a surprised Keroro who, thinking his cover had been blown, asks "How did you know I was here?!"

* In the third episode of the ''Manga/IchigoMashimaro'' anime, this trope is subverted when Matsuri tries this, but is not very good at it, failing miserably. Miu, the {{Jerkass}}, not fooled by Matsuri's feeble attempt, does a LookBehindYou of her own back on her, which given Matsuri's vague TheDitz tendencies, is played straight, working very well. In episode 8 Miu tries it on CoolBigSis Nobue with "Look! A UFO!", but is confused when Nobue just agrees. Then laughs at her. But then Miu launches into WeNeedADistraction...

* In ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'', as Shiho evaluates Arika and Erstin's cooking results, she refuses to even try the "food" they made because of how disgusting it looks. Arika tells her that there's a spiral in the sky before putting a morsel in her mouth while she's distracted. Shiho finds the food disgusting and gets angrier.

* Cui, a minor underling of Frieza in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', distracts Vegeta by looking over his shoulder and gasping, "Lord Frieza?!". This later became his Ultimate move in the video game adaption, ''VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokaiTenkaichi 2''. The most amusing thing about this, is that in ''Tenkaichi 2'', ''[[TooDumbToLive even Frieza himself falls for it!]]''

* Usagi and Chibiusa try this on a Snow Dancer chasing them during the second ''Manga/SailorMoon'' movie. The Snow Dancer falls for it completely, and looks genuinely puzzled when she turns around and they aren't there anymore.
