* From the description above, the classic quasi-comedy ''Film/TheCourtJester''. Everyone knows the pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon, but the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true!

* In the WebVideo/{{Scamalot}} episode "''Poison''," James advises John to switch plates with his wife in case she's trying to poison him, then changes his mind because the wife would anticipate them switching the plates and poisoning her own food. Later he concludes that they should switch the plates after all, as she would have anticipated their anticipation and decide to poison John's food.
-->'''James:''' Of course it is possible that she might anticipate ''this'', though. Basically I'm confused.

* ''TabletopGame/ShadowHunter'', is a MeleeATrois with the Shadows (monsters), the [[TheHunter Hunters]], and the neutral. The shadows must kill the hunters. The hunters mist kill the shadows. The neutrals have their own objectives. One of the neutral is Daniel, whose InstantWinCondition is [[DeathSeeker being the first to die]]. So inexperienced players who end up with Daniel may attack others randomly, hoping to get killed through retaliation. Experienced players will see right through it. So an experienced player may attack everyone at random to avoid retaliation by making everyone think they are Daniel. But if they are experienced and know he is experienced, they will see right through the charade. So an experienced player playing with other experienced players who know he is experienced and ends up with Daniel will attack other at random to make them believe he is someone pretending to be Daniel, hoping to be killed by the others to prevent him from becoming the SpannerInTheWorks. But experienced players knowing he is experienced knowing he knows they know he is experienced will see right through this charade, but an experienced player who knows he plays with experienced players who know he is experienced and that he knows they know...

** [[Creator/MrT B.A. Baracus]] is terrified of flying, so they have to drug him every time they go on a flight. One time, they put it in his burger. Another time, he realized that they needed to drug him, so he took Murdock's burger. And promptly passed out afterwards. Finally, at one point he was switching everyone's burgers, trying to figure out which one was drugged, and ultimately decides that the one burger they wouldn't have put it in is the one they gave him first... only for it to be revealed that this time, they'd drugged his milk.
*** How exactly did this guy get into Army Special Forces again?
** Also from ''Series/TheATeam'':
-->'''Amy:''' The last couple of times Decker got really close you pulled the same trick, hiding right under his nose. Making him think we're half-way out of state. He's gonna figure that game out.\\
'''Hannibal:''' Yeah. But he'll figure I figured that, so he'll figure that I figured the other way, which is why we're staying here.\\
'''Amy:''' That makes no sense.\\
'''Hannibal:''' Decker will understand it.

* A hilarious example exists in ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'' with mid-level villain Vizzini. He goes through all sorts of permutations on which goblet has the poison in it, based on his observations and the defeat of his minions. In the end, [[spoiler:he was right in all his deductions, as every conclusion he reached was that he could ''not'' choose one of the two goblets, but he failed to take his deductions to the logical conclusion: his opponent had poisoned both goblets of wine. His opponent had spent four years building up an immunity to that particular poison]].
