* The second ''Film/TheOmegaCode'' movie has this trick being pulled against (''against'', mind you) the Antichrist, Alexander Stone. The final battle starts off as a fight between the forces Stone has on hand and those of the United States (who were supposedly there to finally give in and join the OneWorldOrder), backed by China (who have been waiting for the right moment to strike back after being forced under) and Italy (uh, Vatican power?).

* In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'', King K. Rool pulls this. Just after you defeat him, fake credits start to roll across the screen. They're pretty obviously fake, but seconds after they finish, K. Rool gets back up and continues to fight. Subsequent tries have him just fall over and then get back up, though the first time it happens is likely to catch a player off-guard.

** Later, the PRT is convinced that [[spoiler:she]] is attempting something similar when [[spoiler:she abruptly turns herself in after wiping out or assimilating every other gang in the city.]] [[SubvertedTrope she isn't.]]
* In ''Literature/{{Twig}}'', Reverend Mauer offers to give his life in exchange for his men being spared by the Crown, knowing that in fact everyone even remotely associated with him will be executed in defeat. His opponent the Duke of Francis, who knows that Mauer is aware of his ruthlessness, has his infiltrators defuse the planted bombs that Mauer had [[TakingYouWithMe planned to detonate at the site of his surrender]]. Mauer, however,[[IKnowYouKnowIKnow being aware that the Duke would be alert for traps,]] was only surrendering in the first place to get the Duke out in the open, revealing his secret weapon: a new rifle with enough firepower to gun down the Duke, a superhuman with BulletTime reflexes and incredible durability, at a distance.

* In the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' games Eggman does this quite a few times, pleading that he'll reform provided Sonic doesn't beat him to a bloody pulp, just before activating a new machine. Most notable is that in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' he does this at the end of the ColdOpening, right at the beginning of the game. Sonic doesn't really buy it but he's willing to stand around joking about it because he's currently high on GodMode as Super Sonic and theoretically nothing can hurt him. Sadly, [[BatmanGambit that was an important requirement of the trap]].

** Sonic, himself, tries to pull this in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', when Eggman takes Amy hostage and demands Sonic relinquishes his Chaos Emerald. Since Sonic had a fake Emerald created to sabotage the [[WaveMotionGun Eclipse Cannon]], he acquiesces to Eggman's demands. Unfortunately, this turns out to be a trap: Eggman knew beforehand that the Emerald was a phony.

* This happens ''three frickin' times'' in ''TheOutlawJoseyWales.'' It's played straight twice by TheHero and inverted by the Union troops at the beginning of the film, [[spoiler: who accept the Border Ruffians' surrender and promptly begin to gun them all down.]]

** The Japanese were absolutely notorious for this. So much so that many American soldiers decided that taking Japanese prisoners was not worth the risk, and shot them instead.
*** On the other hand, many [[ValuesDissonance Japanese were incredulous that the Americans would actually take them prisoner and treat them decently]]. Once taken prisoner they were extremely cooperative, as they had no real model for how prisoners were supposed to behave.
