*Paul in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'', when he's seemingly mind-controlled by Bayanis, and plays along for a day to stall for time while he finds out where the others are. (I didn't want to go off sort of half cocked.) As soon as he knows they're okay and coming to rescue him, he wraps up Bayanis.
*Paul again in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', at the White Tower, when again he's seemingly mind-controlled (the others definitely are), and he waits to see what their captors expect of them before dropping the pretense and scaring them away.

** [[spoiler:Ian Starshine]] let himself be caught, thinking he could recruit ''other'' prisoners to help bring down a local dictatorship. Unfortunately, this backfired on him. The smart prisoners don't last long (due to prisoners occasionally being selected to fight in arenas, thus culling out the weakest ones), and just because a master thief can easily evade the local law enforcement doesn't necessarily mean he can escape on his own.

* In ''Webcomic/AverageJoe'', the titular character [[http://ajcomic.com/?p=390 allows himself to be tied up and dakked]] rather than risking his secret identity by using his super powers to resist...before realising he's just a stranger to everyone there anyway so it wouldn't have mattered.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' episode 60 (Lightspeed): the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Hive-Five]] "captures" Kid Flash and places him inside a metal cage. Instead of directly busting out, the superhero takes his time trying to convince Jynx [[HighHeelFaceTurn to redeem herself]], and only then he makes it obvious for the Five he was never really their prisoner by dismantling their tower.
