* In ''ComicBook/RedRobin'' "Promise" gets Tim to come to her location with false information about the assassination game he's investigating in order to knock him out with her hidden meta-human abilities and kidnap him for her "sister". Luckily Tim was aware that something was off about the situation so he alerted ''his'' [[ComicBook/Batgirl2000 sister]] and triggered a tracking device on himself.

* One of the earlier missions of ''VideoGame/AdvanceWars 2: Black Hole Rising'' has Sami follow intel that Flak, the resident DumbMuscle of the villains side, is at a location "resting his troops". Instead she encounters the MadScientist Lash, who planted said intel, with a hardened force, access to a factory, and with reinforcements en-route in a mere 7 days. It's the first mission in the game that's ''very'' easy to lose, as nothing less than pitch perfect play will let you win (and even then you're likely to finish on day 6 or 7), and effectively is the point where the enemy [=COs=] [[WakeUpCallBoss stop messing around and get serious]].
