* In the SwordOfTruth, Jagang did this to make it look like the army went one way, forced a confrontation with Kahlan as she went scouting, and pretended to believe that his ruse had fooled her. His army attacked that night.
* Parodied in the Literature/{{Discworld}} novel ''Moving Pictures''.

* The superintelligent rats pull this off in ''Literature/MrsFrisbyAndTheRatsOfNIMH''. When the main colony is about to be bulldozed by scientists looking for their escaped rats, they have enough advance notice to evacuate most of the population, but they know a suddenly-empty nest will seem suspicious. Seven or eight volunteers remain, and when the nest is opened, they run a circle route in varying patterns to present the illusion of a steady stream of escaping rats.

* Circular Drive-style deceptions were popular with the western Allies in WWII, originating with the British in the Western Desert and later embraced wholeheartedly by the U.S. Army and climaxing in an entire false invasion force off of Calais on D-Day. Literal {{Circular Drive}}s were a popular part of these deceptions, with trucks full of mannequins and fake insignia.

insignia. Since allied trucks typically had tarps over their cargo beds two soldiers sitting next to the tailgate would often be enough to convince most observers who'd naturally assume that truck was full. Why send a whole truck just to carry two men?.

* The famous long dolly shot that opens Creator/AkiraKurosawa's ''{{Rashomon}}'' was filmed by having the actor walk a figure eight path that crossed the dolly tracks twice. Clever framing makes it look like the camera is following the woodcutter through the forest but he's actually walking around it.
