* In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'', a group of lesser villains form a superhero team of their own to steal Ben's thunder. Rather than fight or even expose them, Ben just puts himself on the sidelines, even going as far as to watch paint dry. Sure enough, without Ben to unite against, the villains' clashing egos causes the team to fall apart, [[GenreSavvy which was what Ben was gambling on.]]

* Hober Mallow's strategy for the war against Korell in Literature/{{Foundation}} consists of ''not'' making any major offences. The Foundation defends its territory, but that's basically all. How does this work to win the Foundation the war? [[spoiler: Korell is economically dependent on the Foundation -- thanks to Hober Mallow, as it happens -- and so Korell finds itself without any population-unifying bombardments, just a steadily worsening economy and quality of life as more and more things shut down without spare parts from the Foundation.]]

* ''TheSimpsons'': A halloween episode included the story "Attack of the 50-Foot Eyesores," about [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant advertising mascots]] that come to life and destroy Springfield. As discovered by Lisa and Paul Anka (!), the key to survival is "just don't look." Because any ad that doesn't get attention, quickly vanishes.

* ''WhatsNewScoobyDoo'': an egotistical computerized house appears as the villain. The only way to make it stop was to completely ignore it, causing it to overheat in its efforts to get attention.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
