* ''VideoGame/{{Penumbra}}'', made by the same developer as ''Amnesia'', also uses this mechanic. You can find packets of beef jerky and toss them at the various zombified dogs ''before'' they see you, allowing you to either kill them in a SneakAttack, or simply run away while they're distracted. However, the second game, Black Plague, throws this and all weapon mechanics out the window in favor of pure survival and stealth skills.

* WoW-based comedy series ''Illegal Danish'' involves the characters Rasi and Basutei traveling to Ashenvale for apparently nothing but a vending machine. Rasi is annoyed, but Basutei is overjoyed, and launches into his own little commercial when he sees the machine is stocked with "Goblin Cakes." He then breaks open the machine and starts stuffing his face until Rasi throws the machine off the tower.

* In one episode of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' Bud spends most of the episode trying to get past a hotel doorman to see an old high-school flame, who's now a celebrity, but keeps getting thrown him out. On one attempt, a fat, middle-aged woman from another room sees and grabs him. (What happens off-screen is best left to the imagination.) Later, Bud gets an idea; he gets rid of the doorman by luring him next to the same woman's room using a table with a hamburger, making sure that she grabs ''him.'' (Unfortunately, while he manages to talk to his old flame for a few minutes, the guard is 'very'' angry when he comes out.)
