* The first episode of Telltale's ''VideoGame/BackToTheFuture'' has Marty doing this to Kid Tannen so he can steal his hat. It gets quite a bit of use in later episodes, too, with various victims but Marty always the perpetrator.

* One of theVideoGame/BanjoKazooie games, titled Banjo-Tooie, has Kazooie doing this in the intro while Banjo and friends are playing Poker. During the game of Poker, when Banjo says that Kazooie is not getting her birdseed money, she replies, "Don't be so sure, Banjo..." Then, Kazooie points and says, "Hey! Look outside, everyone! Grunty the witch is coming!" Then, dramatic music plays as everyone else looks. Kazooie then makes her move and takes Bottles' gold and snickers. Bottles then says, "W-Where, Kazooie? I can't see her!" Kazooie then says, "Oh... Er, false alarm, Bottles. Must've been some shadows."

* In ''VideoGame/Portal2'', one of the things Wheatley tries to get the player to turn around is to point out another robot plugged into the wall. Whether or not this works is up to the player.

* In ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'', when you decide to enter the mine to bring some red stones, your partner does this to the three Drilbur guarding the entrance to the mine by saying, "Hey, all you Drilbur! Look at that! A delicious-looking Apple tree just sprouted up over there!" Surprisingly, since the three Drilbur suspect that trick, but the three Drilbur just decide to check anyway, it works, and you and your partner go into the mine.

* The homeless man in ''VideoGame/{{Jazzpunk}}'', who shows up on two separate occasions, will say "You gotta look behind you" when he's run out his list of lines. Doing so -- and indeed turning away from him at all at this point, which you will inevitably do if you want to continue the game -- will cause him to disappear with a cartoony running-away sound effect and dust cloud.

** Subverted in ''Dissidia 012''. After Bartz fights Giglamesh in battle, Bartz says "Hey, look at your body!" Giglamesh believes that Bartz is attempting to trick him into letting his guard down. [[spoiler:Turns out, Bartz was actually being quite serious when telling him to look at his body, as he was growing transparent just before being sucked into the Void.]]
