Note that a DangerouslyGenreSavvy might also take into account the upcoming trope might be a trick, and this is a SubvertedTrope. Thus that character might [[XanatosGambit plan for either outcome]].

** Piccolo successfully exploits YearInsideHourOutside shortly after this by having Trunks and Goten train in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber; though he can only stall Buu for a few minutes at most, those few minutes enable Trunks and Goten to get several hours worth of training.

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'': On several occasions, the Animorphs exploit [[BigBad Visser Three]]'s status as a BadBoss, knowing that his leadership makes the Yeerks less effective. Indeed, it works to their advantage on multiple occasions; more than once, some of the Visser's subordinates have found evidence that the Animorphs were in fact humans, due to such clues as a pair of jeans floating in the sea after a confrontation by a beach. However, due to their fear of the Visser's intolerance and possible wrath, they choose not to question his beliefs (Visser Three was firmly convinced that the Animorphs could ''only'' be Andalites due to his belief that the Andalites would ''never'' share their technology, especially the [[VoluntaryShapeshifting morphing technology, with other species).

** During the Frieza Saga, Vegeta exploits CameBackStrong by having Krillin mortally wound him and then having Dende [[HealingHands heal]] him, knowing that Saiyans get power boosts upon recovering from near-fatal injuries. Unfortunately, while he ''does'' get much stronger, it's still not nearly enough to make a difference against Frieza.
