* In ''WeissKreuz'', [[ChivalrousPervert Yohji Kudou's]] role in Weiss frequently involves striking up a relationship with a female target in order to get information, especially in sequel series ''Weiss Kreuz Gluhen''. Unfortunately for Yohji, [[BecomingTheMask he's very bad at keeping himself from getting emotionally involved]], leading to a breakdown and near-FaceHeelTurn toward the end of ''Gluhen''.

* Genderflipped examples: the Amazon Trio from ''Franchise/SailorMoon.'' In either continuity they were in, they would first try to seduce or befriend their soon-to-be victims; when their targets rejected their advances, the Trio member at work would reveal himself as a villain and whip out the MindRape to try peeking into their victims's dreams.

* [[Comicbook/{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson]] has been both the target of a HoneyTrap, and a HoneyTrap himself. He's a sucker for a beautiful woman, while at the same time being a natural charmer.

* This is part of O'Ren's backstory in ''Film/KillBill.'' Noticeably, [[spoiler: it happened when she was ''eleven''... because O-Ren used ''herself'' as a HT, since the killer of her parents was not just a {{Yakuza}} lord but a [[{{Lolicon}} pedophile]]. Before he could bone her, [[LittleMissBadass O-ren stabs him to death with his own katana]], bitterly telling him to look at her face and realize her identity before he dies. She then pulls the sword out of the DirtyOldMan's stomach (and gets smeared with his blood), takes his gun, kills two of his bodyguards and escapes.]]

* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', being about sex crimes, features more than its share of this trope. Additionally, both female ''and'' male detectives have acted as the HoneyTrap themselves in order to get suspects to lower their guard and incriminate themselves.

* ''Film/TheDistinguishedGentleman'': Jefferson Johnson, the protagonist, runs a scam in which he baits a prominent man with illicit sex, then has the woman's "husband" or "lover" show up and blackmail him with exposure an old con known as the "badger game". Johnson takes it a step further by showing up in the guise of an FBI agent and arresting the "con artists". He'll hustle them right off to jail, but the mark is going to be subpoenaed as a witness. This, of course, is exactly what the mark doesn't want, so he "bribes" Johnson to keep his name out of the press.

* One season one episode of ''Series/MissionImpossible'' featured dueling honey traps. The villain of the week was a spy trying to seduce Cinnamon into revealing the location of the person he was sent to kill, while Cinnamon was trying to seduce him into falling into a trap where he's caught trying to kill his target, so as to discredit him and his faction of his country's intelligence service. The IMF team succeeds in accomplishing their mission, but Cinnamon's last lines make it ambiguous as to who had succeeded in seducing who.

* The Chilean reailty show "Manos al fuego" is all about this trope, as it's about people (generally women) who test the fidelities of their significant others (generally men) by contacting the show runners and asking them to send out attractive people out to use all their sex appeal to seduce them.



* As a fidelity test, girls will have their hot friends attempt to seduce their boyfriends. If the seduction attempt succeeds, things could get dramatic. Fellas, watch out for the honey trap.

* Honey traps were one of the most common missions for female {{ninja}}, or ''kunoichi''. They would be sent to seduce an important target, and either interrogate him via pillow talk, use the threat of revealing the thing to blackmail him, or assassinate him during or after the deed. ''Kunoichi'' were trained, like all ninja, in the creation and use of a wide variety of drugs and poisons, and many were trained in the use of a special kind of concealed dagger[[note]]hidden as a ring[[/note]], making them deadly assassins even when naked.
