* In the second episode of ''Anime/{{Free}}'' Nagisa pulls this on Gou, getting her to demand he use her real name rather than her preferred nickname. The AbridgedSeries of ''Free'', ''WebAnimation/FiftyPercentOff'', even has Nagisa saying "your ass just got looney-tuned."

* Used in a rather darker fashion in Creator/AlanMoore's ''ComicBook/WildCATs'' run as [[ManipulativeBastard Tao]] repeatedly switches positions in a debate with Fuji leading to Fuji's being psychologically crippled.

* In ''Literature/{{Ratburger}}'', the villain is trying to turn [[KidHero Zoe]]'s pet rat Armitage into a burger, leading to this conversation.
-->'''Zoe''': "Get away from me!"
-->'''Burt''': "Or what?"
-->'''Zoe''': "Or I will tell everyone about what you are doing here. Turning rats into burgers!"
-->'''Burt''': "No, you won't."
-->'''Zoe''': "Yes, I will."
-->'''Burt''': "No, you won't."
-->'''Zoe''': "Yes, you will."
-->'''Burt''': "Yes, you will."
-->'''Zoe''': "No, I won't."
-->'''Burt''': "Ha! Got you! I knew you were trouble that day in your flat. That's why I ''let'' you climb into the back of my van and come into my secret lair."



** Also done in 1948's ''Haredevil Hare'', between Bugs and Marvin Martian's dog K-9, over who takes Marvin's Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modula'''''TOR''''' (hey, that's the way he says it).

** In another cartoon, Tom and Spike are fighting over who gets to stay and who has to leave. At one point Tom sadly packs up a BindleStick and heads to the door. He shakes (right) hands with Spike, then hands Spike the bindle and shakes (left) hands, taking Jerry in the process, before patting Spike on the shoulder and gently ushering him out the door. Spike is halfway out of the yard when he realizes what happened and [[MetaphoricMetamorphosis his head turns into a jackass]].

* Tends to happen in arguments ([[GreaterInternetFuckwadTheory especially on the internet]]) where one or both sides aren't entirely sure what their ''own'' position is; they just know that the other guy's wrong. The point at issue takes second place to the reflexive contradiction, until you see someone shift their own argument 180 degrees without even noticing.

* [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] InUniverse in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'': Eddie uses this trick on Roger in order to get him to take a shot of bourbon, and thus use [[CantHoldhisLiquor Roger's usual violent reaction to the stuff]] as a distraction so he and Roger can escape Judge Doom and his weasels. Eddie is GenreSavvy enough to know that Roger's toon nature ensures he will fall for it. Added bonus: the fact that [[spoiler: Doom can't resist contributing to the exchange ("He doesn't want the drink!") is {{Foreshadowing}} for who he really is.]]

** One of Gene Deitch's shorts has this done with a basement; every time Tom descends down the stairs to get to Jerry, Jerry turns off the light, forcing Tom to climb back up and switch it on. Eventually, Jerry doesn't turn off the lights. Tom still shakes his fist at him, then climbs back up, switches the light off, tries to descend and promptly tumbles down the stairs.

* Used in spirit if not in full fact in ''Manga/OnePiece'', in which Robin takes advantage of the absolute obedience of Thriller Bark zombies by tricking Doktor Hogback to tell her to jump out of the building. Hogback, caught up in the moment per the trope, does just that and Robin moves so that the order is accidentally directed at the two zombies Hogback is controlling. They obediently leap out the high tower's window.
