* On one episode of ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens2013'', Dr. Cockroach gets B.O.B. to play hide and seek so he can go away and let him work on a rocket to destroy an asteroid before it hits Earth. Unfortunately, B.O.B.'s hiding place is the fuel tank for the rocket, and so ends up inside the rocket itself as it is about to launch.

* Happened in ''[[Literature/TheElenium The Tamuli]]''. Mirtai, a former slave, is telling her life-story as part of a 'ritual of passage into adulthood', and when she gets to a certain point, she asks the young princess Danae to fetch her some water, since all the talking has made her thirsty. Naturally, this heralds the beginning of a slightly more sordid part of her tale, which wasn't really appropriate for children. When one of the younger knights, a ChasteHero if there ever was one, starts to flinch, she suggests that maybe he should go help Danae look for water. Of course, since Danae is actually a reincarnation of The Child-Goddess Aphrael, she knows exactly what's going on, could still easily listen in if she wanted to, and is unlikely to be shocked by ANYTHING humans get up to. So she basically just played along, returning with water just when the story left the naughtier subject-matter, while at the same time making it clear that she was well aware of why she'd been asked to go.

* In the first season of ''LastComicStanding'', the other comics tricked Dat Phan (the eventual winner) into a game of hide-and-seek, waited for him to hide, and then went about their business as before.
* An episode of ''TheCosbyShow'' has Cliff send Olivia upstairs to find his slippers because he doesn't want to play with her. He then tells her to find his yellow robe. However, Olivia becomes wise to his game because Rudy tells her that she's being tricked.
* Brought up on MalcolmInTheMiddle when Craig and Dewey are playing hide-and-seek. Dewey uncovers Craig hiding (fairly visibly) behind the curtains. When Craig says that [[ButtMonkey no one's ever found him before]], Dewey tells him it's because he's [[BlatantLies such a good hider]].
