* ''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.

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' allows the VillainProtagonist to exploit BarefootSuicide: when shoving a student from the school's rooftop, she'll slip their shoes off of their feet and lay them down near the edge of the roof, making it appear as if they took their own life and, so long as she wasn't seen by a witness and doesn't disturb the body afterwards, avoiding suspicion.

* In ''Disney/TheLionKing'', Pumbaa and especially Timon exploit PredatorTurnedProtector when they raise the orphaned lion cub Simba. While Pumbaa feels sorry for the poor cub, Timon initially refuses to adopt him due to his fear from the young predator, and changes his mind only when he realizes Simba can defend them from other predators. Which he does when Pumbaa is attacked by the hungry lioness Nala.

** In the Buu Saga, Piccolo, in a desperate attempt to stall for time while Goten and Trunks train, exploits DeathIsCheap by telling Buu that he can pass the time for his opponent to be ready by killing the remaining humans on Earth, knowing that the Dragon Balls can be used to bring everyone back; this backfires when Buu proceeds to use a BeamSpam attack, fittingly called the "[[KillAllHumans Human Extinction Attack]]," to kill every last human on Earth in less than two minutes, without even bothering to leave Kami's Lookout in the process.
