* Film/JamesBond was particularly prone to this; perhaps he just seems a pleasant dinner companion. The Platonic example is Dr. No's dinner with Bond in [[Film/DrNo his eponymous film]], but it also happened in ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'' (with Creator/BrittEkland provided a bikini rather than evening wear), ''Film/LiveAndLetDie'', ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'' and ''Film/{{Moonraker}}'' as well as the Bond parodies in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and ''Film/AustinPowers''.

Sean Connery's Bond takes it in stride in the movie, and by now it's become almost mundane.

Laser blasts [[TheDogShotFirst that Han shot first]]. With after-dinner torture, too! Though they don't end up having the dinner, ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' has a skit showing what happens when they do. It's awkward.

Also compare and contrast SacredHospitality, of which this trope is arguably a subversion: The villain usually plans to torture the hero after the meal, or place him in some horrible death-trap, explicitly offering the hero the protection of guest-right, fully intending to violate that protection immediately thereafter. The villain thereby [[MoralEventHorizon reveals himself to be totally without moral or ethical scruples]].

* Normally this trope requires the protagonist to be captured, but when Landa invites himself into Lapadite's home to share a drink and a smoke and casually chat about missing Jews near the beginning of ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', his power in occupied France makes the home a prison.
** Which is [[ShoutOut quite similar]] to one of the first scenes in ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly''. Appropriate since the film is, by WordOfGod, a SpaghettiWestern set in German-occupied France.
** Likewise, the scene where Landa sits and enjoys a strudel with Shoshonna. Her reaction when he finally leaves tells it all.

* In ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'', when Ariel's squad arrives in Felde, the colony presided over by [[TheChessmaster chessmistress]] BigBad Snadhya'rune, the latter arranges for Ariel and Faen to come sit at the head table with her. Snadhya is - officially - a neutral party in the District War, and a VillainWithGoodPublicity besides, but Ariel is still extremely distrusting of a woman whose clan is the Sarghress' main opponent. Snadhya, however, immediately begins a charm offensive, assuring Ariel that she is not a threat, speaking of her admiration for the Sarghress and even pointing out that the two of them share their signature color, [[PurpleIsPowerful purple]].
** And then Kalki chops Ariel's arm off. The other guests act accordingly.

Instead, for a time, he treats the hero as a [[TermsOfEndangerment close friend]] and [[SacredHospitality guest in his home]], giving him [[GildedCage a plush bedroom]] and a fine (if tense) dinner with AGlassOfChianti and [[YourFavorite the hero's favorite meal]], made from ingredients [[FromMyOwnPersonalGarden grown in the villain's garden]]. If the food isn't spiked, the meal ends with a tour of the facility, then a [[WeCanRuleTogether sales pitch]] on the [[StoryBoardingTheApocalypse villain's scheme]] to remake the world JustBetweenYouAndMe. The hero will reply "YoureInsane" -- and that's if he's polite. If he isn't, saying "ImNotHungry" dampens the festivities quite early.
