* On ''WesternAnimation/ToddWorld'', Todd loves playing keep away with his talking dog Benny, though not so much in "The Art of Change" when Benny takes a paintbrush of his and tries to keep it away from him because he wants him to play, even though Todd is trying to work on a mural.

In another scenario, the protagonist might be quietly minding his own business on the schoolyard when a group of [[TheBully bullies]] come up and take something of his, then pass it around to another one whenever he gets close.

If he can make a plausible threat of getting them in trouble, expect them to transparently lie and claim that it was only a game; otherwise, they might just keep the {{MacGuffin}}. One way or another, the protagonist will need to find an effective way to deal with the bullies.

* In an advertisement for State Farm, a woman sings a jingle to summon her State Farm agent (''Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there!'') who tells her that her State Farm discounts saved her $150, so she's good to buy a fancy purse that she wants. Another woman, who's with her, sings ''I don't have State Farm, but insurance, please find me money'', which summons a fisherman with a dollar at the end of his fishing hook.
-->'''Fisherman''': I got you a dollar! (''woman snatches for it'') Ooh, you almost had it! (''jiggles fishing line'') You gotta be quicker than that. (''chuckles'')

* In ''The Ring of Solomon'', a prequel book of ''Literature/TheBartimaeusTrilogy'', Bartimaeus successfully retrieves the titular ring from Ammet, the powerful spirit of Khaba the Cruel. Afterwards, he returns to Jerusalem and takes the form of the shadow of Khaba that Ammet always assumed, pretending to be Ammet who has come to return the ring to Khaba. As he draws closer...
-->''The shadow made as if to drop the Ring into his palm, then at the last moment jerked it out of reach. Khaba swiped for the Ring and missed. He hopped and danced, squeaking with annoyance, but now the shadow raised the Ring high above his head, dangling it teasingly from side to side. "Nearly got it," the shadow said. "Oo, that was a big jump. If only you were a little taller." "What are you doing, slave?" Khaba roared. "Give me the Ring! Give it to me!" The shadow clapped a hand against one of its outsize ears. "Sorry, ugly. [[ICantHearYou Im a bit deaf. What did you say?]]" "Give it to me!" "Nothing would give me greater pleasure." At which the shadow drew back, swung a fist and punched the Egyptian square on the chin, sending him bodily off the floor, whistling backwards through the air, and down onto one of the golden tables, which shattered beneath his sprawling weight.''

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch'' fight between Music/OzzyOsbourne and RobZombie, Ozzy and Mills do this with Rob's brain. (ItMakesSenseInContext, seriously. [[KentBrockmanNews Nick Diamond]] calls it a "game of HotPotato", but Ozzy is trying to keep it away from Rob, so it more fits this Trope.)
