* A related trope shows its head in the ''WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego'' episode "Scavenger Hunt" where Carmen correctly predicts that apparently chucking a Fabrage egg into the river where Zack and Ivy have cornered her will distract Ivy enough to let her make her escape. The player calls Carmen out on this afterward, and Carmen claims that since both Carmen and the player both knew that Ivy would undoubtedly save the egg [[BatmanGambit it was never really in any danger.]]

* Employed in an episode of ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'', when Kara and Lee are interrogating a would be assassin, ripping the wad of banknotes they found on him while pointing out that paper money is worthless now. In a somewhat realistic application of this trope, this turns out to be just the opener and they gradually upgrade to ToThePain and JackBauerInterrogationTechnique. * In one episode of ''{{House}}'', House tries to blackmail Wilson by taking one of his patients, who was confined to a hospital bed. Wilson retaliated by taking House's guitar. Hilariously, throughout the entire episode, the patient is referred to as being "stolen" while the guitar is referred to as being "kidnapped."
