* The second ever issue of ''{{Wildcats}}'' ends with Maul bearing down on a Daemonite baddie. When the bad guy warns Maul that there's something behind him, Maul almost laughs. "Do I look ''that'' stupid?" Turns out that there really is something behind him -- ComicBook/{{Youngblood}}. Badrock opines that, yeah, Maul does kind of look that stupid.
* ConanTheBarbarian pulled off the subversion when he was fighting a bunch of cultists who had summoned a gorilla-monster-god thing. The ''narration'' even explicitly calls attention to the fact that it's "the oldest trick in the book", but as it turns out, the gorilla-god was actually sneaking up on the cultist Conan was saying it to. Cue GoryDiscretionShot.

* In ''HsuAndChan'', Hsu attempts to gain the edge in a swordfight with lifelong rival Akira Yamamoto by resorting to this tactic. However, while Akira is distracted, Hsu laughs at him for falling for the ruse, missing the opportunity to strike and finding himself caught off guard instead.
** Played straight multiple times when confronted by obese nerds. The brothers commonly point behind the nerd and shout "Look a gallon of pecan ripple" or "Look a display of Princess Leia slave girl lingerie." This tactic hasn't failed yet.
** Norm has employed this trope humorously in some of his other works. For example, in ''Violence Man'', 3 mob thugs attempt the think of a distraction for Violence Man so that they could escape him. Eventually one shouts "WE HAVE SCRABBLE IN THE CAR!" which surprisingly succeeds in distracting him for a few seconds.

* Subverted in an Infinity War issue of ComicBook/FantasticFour. The Puppet Master is being confronted by The Thing. The Puppet Master shockingly tells the Thing that a monstrous massive figure is behind him. Thing doesn't buy it. Thing then gets clobbered by his evil twin.

* Sometimes used by Paperinik, especially in the non-''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' stories. Most notably, in one occasion a time-travelling Paperinik used his left hand to distract someone from a power jab to the face from his right hand, and he did it ''on his past self''.
