Duryodhana calls the Pandavas out for this, since strikes below the belt are illegal. OlderThanFeudalism.

* The second ''Film/TheCheetahGirls'' movie has this done by the [[MeddlingParents Agent]] mother of one of the competitors. This includes having her daughter interact with Chuchi in order to split her off from the other girls, and even arranging for them to be paid at a performance in order to get them kicked out of the competition that they're in Barcelona for (which is only for amateurs; receiving payment makes them professionals). Her daughter ultmately calls her out on her behavior, saying that she doesn't want to win by cheating.

* Used during the Chuunin Exam in ''Manga/Naruto''. The written exam was designed to be very difficult (although some people could do it the old-fashioned way, such as Sakura), but the Instructors left hints that punishment for cheating would be rather lenient, that you're actually ''expected'' to cheat. Which is the point, the exam is testing your intelligence gathering skills.

* In ''The Boys in Company C'', a group of US Marines are told that they can stay behind the lines, playing soccer (and presumably avoiding combat) if they ''lose'' to their South Vietnamese opponents, since this would help build public confidence in the South Vietnamese Army. After they deliberately give their opponents the lead, the other team starts taunting them. The Marines then proceed to kick their butts, and then line up to go back to their base, for reassignment in the field.
