'''Geralt:''' (''completely unfazed'') ... There's nothing behind me. I'm a Witcher, I'd have heard it. Just like I can hear your heart. Which is pounding. Like a liar's.

* Played around with in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'': Krika tells Tahu, who has him cornered, to look behind him. Tahu asks Krika if he really thinks that Tahu is stupid enough to fall for that. Krika tells Tahu that he's ''counting'' on that, since there actually ''is'' something behind him. Tahu chances the look, [[spoiler:and sure enough, four of Krika's allies are charging straight into the battle.]]

* Bojangles did this twice in one of their commercials where one guy tells the other Dale Earnhardt Jr. is behind the other one, but it turns out it's just a cardboard cutout. The second guy claims the same thing, to which the first sarcastically describes the racer ordering a specific meal order. Turns out he's the real [[IncrediblyLamePun Dale]] when he corrects the guy:
-->'''Dale Earnhardt Jr.:''' Dirty rice, Tim. It's dirty rice.

* In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', Makarov goes OneWingedAngel and proclaims himself a god. Shining Armor looks over his shoulder and tells him to look behind him. Makarov misinterprets him and thinks he's saying to look to the past, then boasts that he controls the past, present, and future. Shining says to ''physically'' look behind him. This time, he turns around, and comes face to face with [[ClockRoaches The Blank Wolf]].

In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', a flashback, Discord got into a fight with Celestia's brother Leo, the god of Strength and Gravity. When Leo grabs him, he boasts, "Who's your daddy?" Discord points and shouts, "HIM!" Shocked, Leo lets go and turns around, as Discord's father Havoc is one of the most powerful beings in the universe and TheDreaded for a good reason. Havoc isn't there, then Discord hits him. Leo says he can't believe he fell for that.

* ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' had Paige invoking this trope on an ice cream vendor at the zoo, claiming that there is an escaped lion, tiger, and bull elephant in that order. By the time he even turns around, he notices that the ice cream cone he prepared for Paige had far too many swirls (about 16, with some drooping over the cone). He also mentioned that she did something similar the previous summer.
* In the ''ComicStrip/PoochCafe'' [[http://imgsrv.gocomics.com/dim/?fh=4844b91b2768d15a67258648d49232df comic for March 9, 2011]], Chazz uses "Look! Halley's Comet!"
* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'': Calvin once pulled this at dinner. His parents turned to look while Calvin quickly pushed his own dinner off his plate and onto theirs.
* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'': The ''very first time'' Garfield stole Jon's dinner, he uses this trick. And it won't be the first time Jon will fall for it.
* ''ComicStrip/HsuAndChan'':
** Hsu attempts to gain the edge in a swordfight with lifelong rival Akira Yamamoto by resorting to this tactic. However, while Akira is distracted, Hsu laughs at him for falling for the ruse, missing the opportunity to strike and finding himself caught off guard instead.
** Played straight multiple times when confronted by obese nerds. The brothers commonly point behind the nerd and shout "Look a gallon of pecan ripple" or "Look a display of Princess Leia slave girl lingerie." This tactic hasn't failed yet.
* Norm has employed this trope humorously in some of his other works. For example, in ''Violence Man'', 3 mob thugs attempt the think of a distraction for Violence Man so that they could escape him. Eventually one shouts "WE HAVE SCRABBLE IN THE CAR!" which surprisingly succeeds in distracting him for a few seconds.

* In the first chapter of ''Fanfic/OldWest'', Sheriff WesternAnimation/{{Rango}} is held at gunpoint by three mercenaries and this trick is the first thing that comes to his mind.
-->"Look! Hawk!" He shouted as he pointed his finger at the sky.
-->Whether by instinct or luck, all three mercenaries turned in fear to look at the sky, ducking low and covering themselves as if they feared talons would spear them as any moment. When nothing came however, they stood and Tomson quickly spun around, only to see the end of Rango's tail ducking behind an alley.
