* In ''DemonsSouls'', this becomes a ''required'' tactic if you don't want to get jumped by a gang of DemonicSpiders all at once, and usually involves getting a single enemy's attention by hitting them with a ranged attack. ''VideoGame/GodHand'' lets you [[IShallTauntYou do this with taunts instead.]]

* In most ''Videogame/{{Halo}}'' games on the Legendary difficulty, this is a common option if you're low on health and have an empty or weak weapon. Fans call this the 'Trap Door Spider Method'.

* Inverted in ''EmpireEarth'' thanks to ArtificialStupidity. When a unit attacks another, the target and any nearby enemies will respond by trying to kill the attacker... and ''only'' the attacker, meaning the rest of your army can butcher the stampeding enemies without fear of retaliation as your lone archer runs like mad (this becomes less effective in later epochs, as ranged units become the norm). It's possible to win all of UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat's battles without taking a single loss thanks to this.

** Pulling can be used to grief other players in MMOs by deliberately pulling additional enemies toward other players. In some cases this is done so a weaker lone player can make stronger players kill the enemy for him, while in other cases it is done simply to hinder or kill the players.

* This is one of the most common traps in LeagueOfLegends and other MultiplayerOnlineBattleArena games. However, because your enemies are ''humans'', luring them takes a certain degree of [[KansasCityShuffle deception]].
