* Hilariously subverted in an episode of ''Series/{{Bunkd}}''. Ravi and Xander try to hustle Emma and Lou during a game of billiard where the losers would have to stand outside for a whole day dressed as chickens. However, Ravi becomes so pressured over hitting the final hole that he misses, and he and Xander get ''themselves'' hussled instead with TheStinger showing them trapped outside covered in clay and feathers and betting attacked by a hawk while Emma and Lou watch them victoriously.

* In the ''[[BattleTechExpandedUniverse [=BattleTech=]]]'' novel ''By Blood Betrayed'', protagonist Harley Rassor finds out in person that being subjected to this is practically an informal rite of passage for new recruits to the mercenary unit Able's Aces -- like him. The idea isn't so much to relieve them of their money (although that ''can'' happen, a win is a win) as to see how long it takes them to figure out the scam and how they react once they do.

* 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.

Then he makes a big bet (before his opponent can take the winnings from the betting tray, so his opponent's bet constitutes all the money he'd lost and then some) 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.
