** The Japanese version of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]'' also says that [[spoiler:The Black Knight]] that Ike defeated in ''Path of Radiance'' was a "ghost" created by malfunctioning warp powder. The English localization, however, thinking that was ridiculous, changed it to an instance of ILetYouWin using existing canon and characterization.

* ''Main/{{Smallville}}'': [[spoiler:Lana Lang]] is caught in a car bombing, with enough DNA evidence to confirm the death, in season 6 finale. In the next season it is revealed that it was actually [[spoiler:her clone created by Lex.]] * ''The Mentalist'': Protagonist Patrick Jane tracks down [[spoiler: and kills his almost-lifelong nemesis, serial superkiller "Red John", season ends.]] The next season begins, and, hey, what do you know: [[spoiler: that guy Jane shot? He was actually just a boring minion of Red John's.]]

* Used on more than one occasion in episodes of ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'' to explain how the latest scheme by SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor didn't actually work, since the heroes were being represented by robotic duplicates. [[FridgeLogic Raises the question]] of why the Legion of Doom doesn't bother with autopsies, or why they throw away their latest superweapon the minute the Super Friends "appear" to be dead.

* The name comes from Doombots which are used by writers in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse to explain how SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom rarely ever actually "loses" battles.

** SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom himself does this during his fight against [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]], [[spoiler: with the "Doom" crushed under a TIE fighter by Vader to be a Doombot]].

* Played with in the Marvel crossover ''SecretInvasion'', but instead of robots, it's with Skrulls, shape-shifting aliens. It begins with a character who is revealed to be a Skrull, who managed to stay undetected, and the whole story is about the paranoia of who ''else'' may be an undetectable Skrull. And then it got to the controversial ComicBook/CivilWar: the New Avengers were so damn sure that [[Comicbook/IronMan Stark]] only did the things he did because he was secretly a Skrull, and Stark suspected that ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's resistance to the Registration Act may had been because he was a Skrull... but no. ''Secret Invasion'' was not used as a ResetButton of anything, and did not organize or start any of the recent disasters. Stark and Rogers in ''Civil War'' were both themselves, Hulk in ''ComicBook/WorldWarHulk'' was himself (and the creature that destroyed ''PlanetHulk'' to make him go in a rampage of revenge, too), ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} was himself when he stole the Terrigen crystals and started a war between ComicBook/TheInhumans and the human race, the ComicBook/ScarletWitch was herself in ''Comicbook/AvengersDisassembled'' (and TheWasp, who reminded her of her lost sons, too), and also in ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'' (and Quicksilver, who made her change reality, too), and so on. The Skrulls were simply in the background, trying to take advantage of the things happening, but not causing them.

** Used in ''ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour'' to explain Doctor Doom returning after his death at the end of ''ComicBook/{{Ultimatum}}''; Victor Van Damme is genuinely confused when Namor says he saw him die, and when Tony says he tried to destroy the world. He reveals he had Mary Storm pose as him during his time away from Earth-1610 as a contingency plan.
