** Snake hustles Homer this way in three-card-Monte. Marge, being somewhat GenreSavvy here, realizes Snake's accomplice is likely his brother. (And then does something few marks, for some reason, ever consider - revealing the two other cards to show everyone that all three are the same.)

* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Time's Arrow", Data finds himself stranded in Earth's past in San Fransisco in the 1800s. How does he make some quick money for means of acquisition? Hustle some card sharks who assume he's "fresh off the boat". Not only can the android card-count like no organic sentient could ever hope to, not only does he have the ultimate poker-face, but the sharks ''let him deal'', and a previous episode established he [[CardSharp has the ability to stack a deck]] more quickly than the human eye can see. Needless to say, Data cleaned house.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'', one quest has you helping a hustling: go in an arena contest and win by just enough to win a significant bet, but not so much that your opponent won't believe he can't win the next round by sending a more powerful force.

* In ''Disney/BigHero6'', Hiro does this in an illegal underground bot-fight. He first loses a game with a small bet and comes across as...well, a kid trying to play in the big leagues. Then he makes a big bet and ''completely annihilates'' his opponent's bot. Since this is an illegal underground fight, though, his opponent is ''not happy'' with being hustled, leading to a chase sequence.
