* A number of the traps in ''ChocobosDungeon'' will heal or buff Chocobo. Some of them can be picked out beforehand, while others are indistinguishable from real traps or invisible.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', the Gems build an obstacle course for Steven filled to the brim with illusions of pitfalls, a musical puzzle that is impossible to get wrong, and traps rigged to always stop short of hitting Steven. Steven is unamused when he realizes how fake the whole thing is, but upon overhearing the insecurities of the Gems, he decides to play along.

* [[Machinima/RedVsBlueTheRecollection Agent Washington]] assumes that [[spoiler:Epsilon-Church being left in the middle of a canyon]] is a classic [[SuperSoldier Freelancer]] trap set by [[spoiler:Epsilon-Tex]], and refuses to fall for it in Season 8. [[TheMedic Doc]] states that [[KansasCityShuffle it's possible that the trap was really not one, and that the real trap was where they were]]. Washington [[YouWereTryingTooHard says Doc is overthinking it]]. [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight He wasn't.]]

** Played straight in some of the early video games like ''Reshef of Destruction'', however, where Fake Trap is just a trap card that does nothing.

See also LeapOfFaith. Contrast with KaizoTrap. The inverse is a ChestMonster, where something is made to look like a reward, (such as a treasure chest) but is in reality another enemy.

* The first ''{{Metroid}}'' game had many pools of acid and lava that greatly harmed Samus, but some were actually fake, thus you fell through. Naturally, you had to make that blind LeapOfFaith and hoped that killer pool was a fake in order to proceed. (Hint: don't try this in a room that scrolls horizontally.)
** ''Super {{Metroid}}'' had fewer traps and the fake ones were spikes that were not animated compared to real spikes. The X-Ray Scope also pointed this out.
