* In the classic "Duck Rogers in the 24 1/2th Century," Eager Young Space Cadet (Porky) suggests following a string of planets marked "A," "B," etc. to find Planet X. Duck ridicules the suggestion, then says:
-->'''Duck Dogers:''' Hey, wait a minute. I'll just bet that if we follow those planets, we'll find Planet X. (Dramatic turn) Gad! How do I do it?
-->'''Space Cadet:''' I, ah, di-don't know!

* In ''RPGWorld'', Evil Soldier #347 suggests that Galgarion join the heroes in disguise. Galgarion promptly [[GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity fires him]]... and then brings up the brilliant idea of joining the heroes in disguise!

* This was a RunningGag with Mr. Big, Boris and Natasha's boss in early episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfRockyAndBullwinkle''. A plan that worked was ''always'' his plan until the moment it started to flop, at which point it was Boris' plan. (And he always let Boris know that.)


Added DiffLines:

* Blatantly lampshaded in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987''. After Rocksteady and Bebop screw up again, Krang yells at Shredder for what "your stupid mutants" did, and Shredder responds by asking, "Why is it whenever they do something wrong they're ''my'' stupid mutants". Later in the same episode, the pair manage to actually steal the fuel needed to power the Technodrome, and Krang remarks that, [[IResembleThatRemark "for once my mutants did a good job!"]]

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E4WhereNoDuckHasGoneBefore Where No Duck Has Gone Before]]". Seconds after Launchpad suggests that one of them should play sick as a distraction, Courage announces that they'll use "the old sickness ploy" to escape from the aliens. Notably, Launchpad doesn't say anything, but his smirk indicates he knows Courage did not come up with that idea on his own.

Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' in which the Tibble Twins annoy DW by imitating the characters from a ''Series/PowerRangers''-esque show they accidentally watched without permission has her complaining about it to Arthur, who suggests that DW just tell them that they're annoying her and her friends with their actions. The next scene has DW explaining the plan to one of her friends, who asks DW if her mom gave her that suggestion to which DW says that she came up with it all on her own.

* Inverted for a laugh in "Crimes of the Hot," an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}.'' After discovering that the world's robot population is responsible for the massive buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, Richard Nixon's Head decides to destroy all of them with an EMP cannon. He sends a message to all of the planet's robots inviting them to a big party on the Galapagos Islands; when the Planet Express crew receives it, Zoidberg loudly puzzles out what it could mean before declaring that it must be a deactivation trap. No one responds, and Leela remarks that the ruse is so painfully transparent that everyone saw through it immediately. So Zoidberg is trying to take credit for an idea that ''no one bothered to say.'' The poor guy really can't catch a break.



* Thomas Edison is reputed to have done this several times, mostly notoriously to UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla. Of course he had to be a bit more forceful, seeing as people don't like seeing potentially incredibly profitable inventions stolen. This really bit Edison on the butt because Tesla managed to beat Edison in the worlds fair bid and the Alternating Current/Direct Current War. But was later awarded the [[ComplimentBackfire Edison Medal]] for his accomplishments.

* UsefulNotes/JosefStalin, when this was politically expedient, brought up in a slightly changed form ideas condemned when they belonged to the rivals or formulated proposals as products of his "counseling with comrades". According to his once-secretary Bazhanov, few minutes after reading the draft of new Party Charter the first time he introduced it to Lenin as a result of development by "we here in the Central Comittee" -- of course, this ''does'' sound better than "comrades here found one young man with a good project".

* In part 4 of ''Fanfic/HardBeingPure'', Haeten blatantly steals Astrex's plan.
--> '''Astrex''': I say we get in, cover both of her houses and grab her as soon as we see her.
--> '''Haeten''': I SAID SHUT THE FUCK UP!!\\
...\\
Ok, here's the plan. We get in, camp at both houses and the first one to spot her kidnaps the girl.
--> '''Astrex''': I call plagiarism on my plan. It's not because you changed a few words that it makes it yours.
--> '''Haeten''': You have something to say about my plan?!
--> '''Astrex''': Not anymore.
