** [[spoiler:This is also the reason the victory Kakashi in a battle with Obito. The entire fight with Kakashi, was planned Obito in order to remove Madara's seal as it prevented him from becoming the Ten Tails Jinchuuriki. So Obito allowed Kakashi hitting him in the heart, to remove Madara's seal and become Jinchuuriki.]]

* This turns out to be the [[XanatosGambit final gambit]] of Makuta Teridax's EvilPlan in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle''. [[spoiler:Knowing that a team of heroes would rise to rescue [[PhysicalGod Mata Nui]] from his slumber BecauseDestinySaysSo, he arranged the plan so that when Mata Nui awakens, [[GrandTheftMe it will be after he takes over the Great Spirit's body]]. He and his BrotherhoodOfEvil put ''just enough'' effort into their battles with them to make them think otherwise, and by the time they learn the Makuta intend to awaken Mata Nui, they don't know ''why'' nor are in any position to stop it if they want to save the universe from dying. [[TheBadGuyWins And it works]].]]

->''"There is a small Rahi called a Water Wraith. So small, so insignificant is it that larger fish do not even consider it a worthy meal. But every now and then, a bold water wraith will attack a fish much larger and more powerful than it. It is a one-sided battle, of course, that ends with the poor water wraith in the mouth of its foe. Of course, what the larger fish quickly discovers is that the outer shell of a water wraith is coated with deadly poison. The larger fish dies instantly and the water wraith escapes to feast for months on its very foolish and very dead opponent. Sometimes, my brothers, the best way, the only way, to win...is by losing."''

* ''ThunderForce V'' has you battling the Guardian, an AI infested with alien coding (from the ship of the previous game). Towards the end, however, it's revealed that [[spoiler: Guardian ''was helping the pilot all along.'']] Since it couldn't destroy itself, it deliberately paved a path for the pilot.

* [[TheBrute Mercury Black]] of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is fond of this. In his first instance, he challenges [[TheAce Pyrrha Nikos]] to a sparring match and then forfeited the match, as the whole point of fighting her was to analyse her technique and report her Semblance back to Cinder. Later on, he uses this in his fight against [[TheBigGuy Yang]] in the tournament, as he reduces her Aura down to 16% (the minimum amount to not be eliminated) and then throws the fight only to later goad her into attacking him on live television and getting her arrested, leaving Team RWBY disqualified, demoralised, discredited and deprived of their heavy hitter.

* Employed in ''RutlandWeekendTelevision'', in which a prisoner who is going to be hanged tomorrow is playing chess against a guard, while another guard idly watches. The guard eventually says he's letting him win, to the prisoner's disbelief -- both of the guards then reminisce about a time when he ''didn't'' let the prisoner win, effectively making him a JerkAss.

* The finale of ''Film/PulpFiction'' has Jules do this to the muggers at the diner. He makes it clear that if they had pulled this on any other day, he'd have just killed them both and gone back to his coffee without a second thought. Today, however, he's had a HeelRealization and is trying to change for the better, so he lets them take his money and leave in the interest of avoiding bloodshed.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'', Wander comes to the realization that [[spoiler:Lord Dominator is doing this. The reason the heroes keep escaping from her is because she's holding back; she's secretly extremely lonely, but has [[NoSocialSkills no idea how to interact with others]], so she goes around bullying people as a villain and lets them escape so they can be terrorized or fought again another day. That's the closest thing to companionship she can find.]]

* In ''EverQuestII'' the resident Lord of all Vampires, Mayong Mistmoore, reveals to players at the end of the major Rise of Kunark questline that he's the God of Blood, and he allowed the ancient and powerful sword [=SoulFire=] to be taken from him simply because he finished studying it. He then promptly begins studying another ancient artifact, a doomsday calendar called the 'Chelsith Stone'. (One must wonder about the impact of letting an ancient and powerful Vampire/God study equally ancient and powerful artifacts).

* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', during the first battle between Ash and Paul, Ash's Charmeleon easily defeats Paul's Grotle. However, Misty notices that Paul doesn't seem upset, almost as if he had thrown the fight. And as it turns out, right before Grotle was knocked out Paul had discreetly signaled it to set up a Stealth Rock to cause problems to Ash's other Pokémon.

--> ''Of course you could say that Atalanta was [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny totally captivated by the allure of the golden apples]], unintentionally kneecapped herself as a result, and got married out of a bout of [[IdiotBall shockingly out-of-character stupidity]] and ended up without a say in who her husband was. But like, why would you WANT to? [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation It's up to interpretation]] and that interpretation is gross.'' - WebOriginal/OverlySarcasticProductions
