* In ''[[WebOriginal/StarWreck Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning]]'', Capt. Sherrypie surrenders to lure Emperor Pirk onto the space station Babel 13 where he intends to kill him. [[spoiler: Pirk falls for it. He escapes, but now the two sides are evenly matched, and everyone dies.]]

* ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'': In the initial confrontation between the Enterprise and the Reliant, Kirk pretends to accept Kahn's surrender demand. This is just a ploy to stall for time while his crew looks up the command codes for the Reliant. Once found, he uses the codes to deactivate the Reliant's shields and force them to withdraw.
* ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock'': When he surrenders the ''Enterprise'' [[spoiler:after his son David is executed]], Kirk asks for a minute "to inform his crew". Kruge gives him two minutes. More than enough time to set the auto-destruct sequence, taking most of Kruge's crew with the ship.

* Another Warhammer40000 example comes in the novel ''The Emperor's Gift'', when Logan Grimnar surrenders himself to the Grey Knights, only to kill the Grand Master in charge and immediately teleport away. Granted, the Grey Knights opened fire on outnumbered and outgunned Space Wolves' fleet during the middle of parley in order to exact his surrender, so the Space Wolves didn't consider it a true offer of surrender in the first place.

* Both sides of the [[ArabIsraeliConflict Israeli-Palestinian conflict]] accuse one another of this, especially when the Oslo Treaties are brought up: Israelis point out ‘Arafát’s speeches claiming the agreements were just an ‘I surrender, suckers’ stage in a plan that will eventually kick out Israel and establish the State of Palestine, while the Palestinians mention that Israel ignored its obligations to take down the Israeli-based settlements past the Green Line. But of course, this ''is'' the Arab-Israeli conflict we’re discussing, so please adhere to the RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment.

* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' uses this as BookEnds. You can pull this on the WakeUpCallBoss, and on a Genocide playthrough, the FinalBoss can pull it on you.
** Not just on the first boss--if you get any monster you encounter to the point where you can Spare them, you can attack them for massive damage that will OneHitKill them more likely than not. Granted, it's usually just as easy to kill them normally, if not moreso, so the only real reason to do this is to [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential twist the knife.]]

* An example of this could be the way Deathshead dies at the end of ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', just when the player thinks Deathshead actually surrenders when he grabs BJ's arm, he pulls out a grenade and pulls a ''Main/TakingYouWithMe''.
