* While the events of the first two books in the ''KnightAndRogueSeries'' were personal, the third book has them just happening across a series of crimes. The Michael insists on helping, Fisk believes the best way to handle the situation is to go about their daily lives.

* ''SwordOfTruth'' has a variation in a monster called a Screeling. It will chase down and disembowel anything that runs away from it, but calmly walking away as if it isn't there will confuse it for a while, giving you time to escape, or at least put some distance between you and it and come up with a plan.
* In the ''WheelOfTime'', this is how [[spoiler: Semirhage]] is finally broken.

* ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'': In "Mxyzpixilated", Superman puts on a show of indifference when Mxy transforms the rest of the ''Daily Planet'' staff into animals and threatens to expose his SecretIdentity. This provokes the imp into accepting a higher-stakes challenge, where he will have to go away forever (instead of just for ninety days) if he loses.

* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' has this in the form of the titular Freddy's hallucination. He appears to be staring at you through the window and creeping into your office, but since it ''is'' just a hallucination it can't actually hurt you. Falling for the distraction, however, will let the very ''real'' Springtrap get closer to the office.

* The beginning of ''VideoGame/WarioLandII'' has the Black Sugar Gang causing a ruckus in Wario's Castle as they steal his treasure. The level is normally played by waking up and investigating. However, if you instead decide to ignore the commotion and continue sleeping, you unlock an alternate story path where the sleeping Wario is carried out of the castle and must barge back in to reclaim it.

* ''{{Scrubs}}'': J.D. found out that the best thing he could do for the patient who was turfed to every department in the hospital is to do nothing and let things heal themselves, since the patient was not actually suffering from any disease at all, but rather had a high fever that resulted from the rapidly increasing medications he was being given as he was moved from department to department, each department unable to find a problem and giving him generic medication in the hopes of fixing whatever was wrong with him. Since there was no disease, nobody could find a disease, and kept transferring him to a new department in the hopes that they could fix him, and he eventually ended up with JD, who actually ''forgot'' about the patient entirely, and was told after the fact that his "treatment" was brilliant since the fever broke when he stopped being stuffed with drugs. Apparently this happens in real life.

* In a ''{{Foxtrot}}'' storyline, [[GenreSavvy expert video gamer Jason]] spends a long time struggling to defeat the "Red Orb Guardian," but when he finally puts the controller down his eternally clueless sister Paige gets past it in moments -- she just walked right by, and the monster didn't attack because she didn't attack it. When she explains what she did, Jason is flabbergasted at the thought of an [[BonusBoss incredibly powerful enemy]] you're ''not'' supposed to fight.

* On ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', Ford and Dipper are exploring an alien ship when they accidentally activate its security droids. Since they react to adrenaline, the most effective method is to control your fear and ignore them, but Dipper can't. Dipper eventually faces one down, but since he no longer fears it, it simply shuts off.
