* In ''Film/TheSecretLifeOfWalterMitty1947'', one of Walter's fantasies is life as Antebellum Mississippi riverboat gambler Gaylord Mitty. The dream starts with Gaylord winning the deed to his rival's plantation. The rival then tries to stake his fiancee's hand, which he knows Gaylord is greatly interested in, but Mitty is "unable to hold a lady to such a bargain" and the wager is changed to the rival "[[LoserLeavesTown going North]]" against Mitty's winnings. [[spoiler: The rival wins, accuses Mitty of cheating, and loses the showdown. Gaylord then restores the plantation to the young lady, whose father had been swindled out of it years earlier, and leaves to join his regiment because the first shots of the Civil War had been fired.]]

* A ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse with Josè Carioca as the protagonist had him bet his girlfriend Rosita at a billiards match. Rosita, offended it's not a "real" duel, gets back at him and his rival by pretending to dump him for another guy, and when the fake boyfriend gets challenged he uses his right as the challenged to make it a swordfight-and he's a fencing champion.

* A man returns from his weekly poker game to tell his wife he lost her in a poker game. When she demands to know how he could have done that, he answers that it was very close, but fortunately he'd managed to stack the deck so the other guy had four aces.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', Mr. Krabs bets Spongebob in a poker match with Plankton. Plankton tries forcing [=SpongeBob=] to make a Krabby Patty, but only becomes frustrated when he refuses. When Plankton finally gives up and gives [=SpongeBob=] back to Mr. Krabs, he admits he cheated. More plausible in that he didn't bet the sponge himself, but Spongebob's ''contract of employment.''

* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'': Grim bets himself and loses in a game of limbo [[WhatAnIdiot (to gain the soul of a hamster, of all things)]], however it ''did'' set the series in motion, so it's not a total loss.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', the freeloader Oscar bets the baby he's supposed to be looking after in a high-stakes poker game after he realizes he's out of chips.
