-->'''Batman''': She almost had me, you know. Arms and legs shackled, dizzy from the blood rushing to my brain... I had no way out other than convincing her to call you. I knew [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou your massive ego would never allow anyone else the honor of killing me]], though I have to admit she came a lot closer than you ever did... ''puddin'.''

* This is how the BigBad of ''{{Disney/Zootopia}}'' gets taken down; [[spoiler: Bellwether and her goons manage to retrieve the [[HatePlague Night Howler]] dart gun Judy and Nick took as evidence and traps them in one of the museum exhibits. She then infects Nick with the Night Howler and calls the ZPD to report Judy getting attacked, realizing that the bunny can't escape due to her injured leg and will get killed. For the villain, this means that she gets a couple troublesome witnesses out of the way and create more anti-predator sentiment for her plan in one fell swoop. She stuck around to gloat and watch the gruesome death. It backfires on her ''massively'' when [[BatmanGambit it turns out that Judy and Nick anticipated her doing this]], so they replaced the serum with blueberries while they still had the dart gun. Then while Nick was faking going savage, Judy used her [[ChekhovsBoomerang carrot pen recorder]] to [[CaughtOnTape record Bellwether's gloating, creating more than enough evidence to convict her]]. By the time Bellwether realized that she got duped, [[RightBehindMe the ZPD are behind her]] and [[TheCalvary are more than prepared to arrest her.]] Nick's and Judy's smug faces tell it all.

** Sasuke (take a deep breath) thought that Itachi killed his clan out of hatred but [[spoiler:he really did care about him because he was ordered to by the Konoha elder Danzo, who was than revealed to have been manipulated by Tobi who had also manipulated Pain into becoming evil. Sasuke was then manipulated by Orochimaru to steal his body, but Sasuke saw through this and was met up by Tobi who revealed that he was responsible for the Uchiha clan massacre by unleashing the Nine-taled Fox on Konoha, causing Sasuke to kill Danzo and then target Konoha, but then Kabuto blackmailed Tobi by resurrecting the real Madara whom Tobi had impersonated. Itachi was resurrected by Kabuto as well, but then he defeated him and sealed his own soul away, but then Madara revealed he had caused the death of Rin which caused Tobi to become evil as he was originally Obito and then tricked Tobi into restoring his natural body. Orochimaru, Sasuke, and Tobi (still struggling with the Black side of Zetsu) then try to help everyone else by defeating Madara. Black Zetsu is revealed to have the manifestation of Princess Kaguya who was the first human to use chakra whom Madara was descended from who in turn incapicates him]]. Whew.

** In part 3, Dio launched a barrage of knives against Jotaro, which made him fall quite a long distance. Knowing Jotaro was probably NotQuiteDead because NoOneCouldSurviveThat, he decided to [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy chop his head off with a Stop sign]]. Too bad that's just what Jotaro wanted, because he got a free hit while Dio was closing in. Earlier, Jotaro successfully Out-Gambitted D'Arby in their [[AbsurdlyHighStakesGame poker game]], where the stakes were the souls of him, Joseph, and Polnareff - the boy that Jotaro choose to give the cards was working for D'Arby, and gave Jotaro weak cards, but Jotaro refused to look at them, making D'Arby think that he had switched them, and adds too much to the stakes, with the possibility that losing would equal D'Arby's death, playing a BatmanGambit that made D'Arby break down.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' had Obi-Wan and Anakin negotiate for a captured Count Dooku. The negotiations concluded, they celebrate by having a party. Our heroes are wise to the fact their drinks are spiked, and use TheForce to switch theirs with some nearby partiers. [[spoiler:Not to be outdone, the DangerouslyGenreSavvy VillainOfTheWeek poisons ''all the air in the room''.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': Scott Tenorman. He thought he was getting around Cartman's BatmanGambit, only to run straight into one that [[DisproportionateRetribution was far,]] [[MoralEventHorizon far worse]] and cry the [[EvilTastesGood delicious]] tears of [[HarsherInHindsight unfathomable sadness]].

* How Jackie finishes her scheme in ''Film/JackieBrown''. The cops want her to turn informant so she can help bring down her boss Ordell, a notorious ArmsDealer but Ordell has a nasty habit of [[YouHaveFailedMe killing people who turn informant]] (and has already attempted to do so before she pulled a gun on him). Ordell wants her to continue her money smuggling as an air stewardess, but if she does so the cops will just throw her ass in jail. So, instead, [[spoiler: she understates how much money Ordell wants her to traffic for her to the cops, [[StealingFromTheTill takes the majority for herself]] and, when Ordell realizes what she's done, gets the cops to wait for him at her apartment then get him killed with a single sentence - "He's got a gun!"]].
