* Occurs in a ''DorkTower'' story arc. After hearing that Igor has never played poker, Ken eagerly invites him to join his poker game. At first, Igor frustrates the other players with his naive questions and obvious tells, but by the end of the evening he makes off with all of the winnings. The final strip shows Igor talking to someone on a cell phone about how he fooled everyone... while being pursued by a ''very'' angry Ken.

* Played straight on a episode of ''FamilyMatters'' in which Eddie and Urkel get hustled at a pool hall for more money than they have and require Carl and [[NeverMessWithGranny Grandma Winslow]] to get them out of their mess in yet ''another'' game of pool.

* In the ''{{Victorious}}'' episode ''Freak The Freak Out'', Jade, Tori, and Cat pull off a rather awesome example on Haley and Tara. (Complete with OhCrap looks on Haley and Tara's faces when they realized Tori wasn't the pushover they thought she would be.)

* In one ''Series/MadTv'' sketch, a pool hustler and his accomplice try to con someone, but fail because it is very obvious that they’re hustlers.

* Once in ''DrakeAndJosh'', [[LittleMissConArtist Megan]] first hustled Drake in a game of darts. Drawing inspiration, he goes to the pool hall and starts hustling there. Josh disapproves of the dishonest way to earn money, so he hires his two burly camp counselors to scare Drake straight afterwards.

* In ''Film/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.

* This happens in several AbbottAndCostello movies. Typically it's also [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in that [[ConMan Abbott]] 'tricks' seeming clueless innocent [[ObfuscatingStupidity Costello]] into a game of dice or poker, only for Lou to walk away with everyone's money.
