* The ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' villain Lord Zedd sought the Lightning Diamond, the power source for the Bookala's ship, in order to provide his powerful mega-Zord, Serpentera, which curbstomped the Rangers the first few times they battled it, with an infinite power source to make it invincible. The Rangers, however, tricked the bad guys into bringing a decoy diamond back to Serpentera, while the real diamond was used to restore power to the Bookala's ship so that they could escape.

Not to be confused with MockGuffin, when it turns out in the end that the MacGuffin everybody has been chasing is a fake, and there is no "real" [=MacGuffin=].

Usually, the audience [[UnspokenPlanGuarantee doesn't find out that the villain's got a phony until the villain does]] (or until the hero reassures his sidekick), so '''unmarked spoilers''' abound.
