** Odgenville Elementary's band would've fairly won a Battle of the Bands competition had they not used glowsticks as visual aids are banned by the competition rules, causing their win to become vacated on appeal.

** Same series, the Head of MEXT School Carriers Department: Have a team of highschoolers slated to go against adult profesionals? Not enough: have it be 8 vs 30. Have an 8 vs 30 battle?

Not enough: use Pershings [[ShowDontTell whose speed]] [[ViewersAreGeniuses indicates]] are the post-war [=M26E2=] model (which is only possible through a LoopholeAbuse [[AllThereInTheManual that would usually not pass aproval]]. Have all the above? Not enough. Change the rules to allow a ''[[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill siege gun]]''.

** After clinching pole on the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix qualifying, the McLaren team forced Lewis Hamilton to stop on his in-lap because he hadn't enough fuel to get back to the pits AND produce the minimum 1-litre fuel sample to the FIA. Unfortunately the team said it was "force majeure" (act of God) rather than human error to the stewards. Didn't cut the mustard and he was slung out to the back of the grid as punishment. The same thing happened to Lewis in Canada 2010 which he got away with but since then the rules changed so mistakes like that don't happen again.

* According to Mick Foley, this was apparently practically dogma back when he was working in the Memphis territory, according to a booker who told him "A heel has to cheat to get his heat".

* The ''WesternAnimation/DofusTheTreasuresOfKerubim'' episode that parodies ''Wacky Races'' has expies for Dastardly and Muttley, named Sanata and Dialobo, who of course do this trope and end up in 9th place.

** And when he DOES manage to do so, something causes him to fail at it... Except for "New Leaf", where he starts a knick-knack and novelty item store in the Chum Bucket... which turns out to be part of a convoluted plot to get the Krabby Patty recipe. Of course, Mr. Krabs knew this and countered with his own, even more convoluted plot to best Plankton.

* In the cinematic trailer for ''{{VideoGame/Overwatch}}'', Reaper has a fallen Winston at gunpoint, but pauses long enough to [[EvilIsPetty crush Winston's glasses beneath his boot]]. It backfires spectacularly; the anger Winston feels at the destruction is enough to instantly activate his [[SuperMode Primal Rage]] form.

* In one mission in ''[[VideoGame/{{Scribblenauts}} Scribblenauts Unmasked]]'', Maxwell and ComicBook/TheFlash are in a charity race against [[EvilKnockoff Doppelganger]] and Professor Zoom to win a [[PlotCoupon Starite]], and the latter make several attempts to sabotage the former. They would've won legitimately had Doppelganger not made the decision to give Zoom a jetpack, which sends them flying offscreen.

* It happened literally as per the description when Michael Schumacher stopped to cheat in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWwNU79-tZA the qualifying session of the 2006 Monaco GP]]. After realizing that Fernando Alonso was on the verge of snatching pole position, Schumacher parked his car at the final corner, bringing qualifying to a halt. The stewards were not amused and sent him off to the back of the grid.
