* Done in ''[[Literature/TheQueensThief The Thief]]''. The Magus of [[TheKingdom Sounis]] frees Gen, a low-born thief who stupidly brags about his successes, from prison and forces him to steal [[MacGuffin Hamiathes' Gift]] so the king can use it to claim rightful rulership to the throne of neighboring kingdom Eddis. [[spoiler:Except that he's been played since BEFORE the start of the book by Gen, or rather [[MagnificentBastard Eugenides]], the Thief of Eddis and the Queen of Eddis' COUSIN, who [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow knew that the Magus knew]] where Hamiathes' Gift was, [[ObfuscatingStupidity pretended to be commoner of Sounis]] and purposely bragged about his skill to draw the Magus' attention so that he'd be hired to steal it, and once he did stole it a second time in such a way to make the Magus think he lost it, and finally returned it to his queen.]]

** Zero's altercation with Mao (both times actually.)

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Cinder gets spectacularly outwitted in "Vault of the Spring Maiden". Cinder had already figured out that Raven Brawden had planned on doublecrossing her to keep the holder of the Spring Maiden powers, Vernal, away from her. With the trio away from everyone else, Cinder makes her move, freezes Raven, then gloats about how pathetic a leader she is as she uses her Grimm arm to gut Vernal and steal her powers. To Cinder's horror, it's not there. [[spoiler:Raven breaks free and tears off her mask revealing the truth: Vernal never was the Spring Maiden -- '''''she was'''''. Cinder's greed for power has now put her at a disadvantage.]]

Later, when Blueblood/Bluebelle tries to convince Celestia/Solaris to their side, they are again made to look a fool by Luna/Artemis.

* ''Fanfic/RealityChecksNyxverse'': ''Alicornundrum'' has [[spoiler: Prince Blueblood's father, Duke Blueblood. He tries to con Twilight into a marriage contract with his son. Unfortunately, he never considered: 1) Twilight is ''not'' going to take it lightly, 2) [[MamaBear Celestia's]] reaction if she finds out (which she does indeed). 3)Threatening or trying to boss around [[BadassPrincess Twilight]] or [[GodEmperor Celestia]] carries ''bad'' consequences]].
