** The [[TheFairFolk Dark Eldar]] special character Lady Malys does this in her backstory. The Cthulhu in question was an EldritchAbomination dwelling in the Webway, which she beat in a battle of wits, cut its heart out and replaced her own heart with it. It's also however implied to be the [[TheTrickster Trickster]] god the [[MonsterClown Harlequins]] worship - although the god will counts as Cthulhu for all purposes. Its implied however that she may not have won as much as she though as the creepy-insane laughter coming out of quarters can attest to.
** Another example being when Abaddon landed on a planet and outwitted a Changer of Ways with a deal. In a contest of wits, the Changer would be bound to Abaddon's service if he won, and Abaddon would would forfeit his wargear but be told the Changer's [[IKnowYourTrueName True Name]] if he lost. He lost, but used the planet's nature of moving backward in time to inform his past self of the Changer's Name, thus effectively winning the contest without actually having to participate.

* In ''WesternAnimation/Ducktales2017'', Donald is pitted against Gladstone in a challenge for who will be freed from an evil luck vampire. Donald wins, but the luck vampire still claims ownership of Gladstone, so Scrooge tricks the demon into thinking that Donald, [[BornUnlucky of all people]], is the luckier one since he won so that he'll take Donald instead. Scrooge only has to count the seconds until the spirit kicks Donald out, poisoned due to Donald's horrible luck.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has [[MagnificentBastard Doctor Stephen Strange]], who sets up does this sort of thing both professionally and for fun. For instance, the main plot of the series is essentially the foreground of a time-travel based GambitRoulette set in motion by him involving, amongst others, Loki, a MagnificentBastard in his own right, Odin, who's even better than Loki, [[EldritchAbomination Chthon]], and [[spoiler: the Phoneix Force/Destruction all seven of the Endless]]. Endless. Including Destruction, who is here perhaps better known as The Phoenix Force. He's played them all, without lying even once.

** Thieves simply love stealing from the Daedric Princes. [[TheSacredDarkness Nocturnal]], despite being, essentially, the patron deity of thieves has had multiple items stolen from her by mortals throughout history, including the Grey Cowl, the Skeleton Key, and the Eye of Nocturnal. This [[DoNotTauntCthulhu usually ends badly for the thief]], however. Similarly, the legendary [[CatFolk Khajiit]] thief Rajhin stole the [[RingOfPower Ring of Khajiiti]] off the arm of [[ManipulativeBastard Mephala]] herself.

A scheme concocted by the resident [[TheChessmaster chessmaster]] ends up involving the manipulation of a supernatural entity. Such a plan may include the deity from the outset, or the deity may be integrated into the plan along the way.

** In the [[LooseCanon Obscure Text]] ''[[https://www.imperial-library.info/content/lord-vivecs-sword-meeting-cyrus-restless Lord Vivec's Sword-Meeting with Cyrus the Restless]]'', Cyrus convinces Vivec, a PhysicalGod, that he knows the "[[DangerousForbiddenTechnique pankratosword]]" technique and is willing to use it, in order to get Vivec to cough up a valuable treasure. (It's a bluff, but it works.)

* Kitten Plays With this trope in ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice''. Step 1) Challange [[EldritchAbomination Tzeench]] (the guy on the right in the page image) to [[TabletopGame/YuGiOh a children's card game]] with [[spoiler: the soul of Magnus the Red]] as the stakes. Step 2) [[spoiler: overpower Tzeench with some souped-up monsters, taking his lifepoints down to zero in just one turn.]] One could argue it's a perfect example, except Kitten had no plan going into the duel.

* At the end of the second season of ''Manga/BlackButler'', Ciel manages to pull this on Sebastian. Contracted to have his soul eaten once their deal was complete, Ciel is turned into a demon himself; Sebastian can't eat the soul of another demon, meaning that he's trapped in a loophole and bound to serve his master for all eternity.
