* In ''{{Carrie}}'', the [[NaiveEverygirl titular character]] is asked out by a popular football player named Tommy Ross (whose [[TheAtoner girlfriend]] Sue talked him into it as her way of atoning for her part in the shower incident). Chris Hargensen, resident AlphaBitch and Carrie's chief tormentor, catches wind of it and together with her boyfriend Billy Nolan turn it into this as a way of humiliating her as revenge for being kicked out of the prom for the shower incident. When Carrie gets to the prom, the ballot box is rigged so that Carrie will be voted prom queen, and Chris and Billy dump pig blood on her. [[FromBadToWorse It does not end well...]]

* ''Film/{{Tamara}}'': Shawn, Patrick and Kisha arrange for Tamara to think she is meeting her English teacher ([[TeacherStudentRomace whom she has a crush on]]) at a sleazy motel, so they can video her and show the video around school to humiliate her. It turns into a DeadlyPrank when Tamara snaps and fights back; suffering a fatal injury in the ensuing struggle.

This is a form of heartless PracticalJoke in which Alan thinks he has a date with Bonnie, but in reality it's a trick by Bonnie (or even Charlene) and the expected outcome is anything but a romantic interlude.

In the RomanticComedy genre, this will lead to Alan either temporarily breaking off with Bonnie ([[BreakUpMakeUpScenario to make up later]]) or meeting Dorothy, who will be the actual romantic interest for the rest of the story.

# '''The No-Show''' - Just not showing up, to see how long the poor sap will wait. Not the same thing as StoodUp, where Bonnie intended to show up and was late or otherwise unable (with DoomedAppointment as a special subtrope if Bonnie died before arriving).
# '''Setup for Humiliation''' - Here the "date" is a setup for public humiliation by Bonnie and her friends.

# '''Bait and Switch''' - The actual date is with someone else than Alan was led to believe, usually someone much less desirable. "Oh, you thought I was asking for me? No, I was asking for my cousin Melvoid." (Compare BedTrick.)
# '''Embarrassing Location''' - The supposed date location is dangerous or embarrassing for Alan, because, for example, Bonnie wants to meet Alan in a [[GayBarReveal Gay Bar]] ([[Music/ElectricSix Gay Bar, Gay Bar]]).
# '''Malicious Trap''' - The "date" is actually a way of [[LuredIntoATrap luring Alan to an isolated location for the purpose of robbery, murder, or rape]] (this last one is more likely to happen to Alanna than Alan). This type is rarely ever meant to be a "prank", actually, and not done with humor in mind; there is actual intent to do the victim harm.

* VideoGame/{{Bully}}:
** The page image depicts [[ButtMonkey Algernon]] "Algie" [[MommasBoy Papadopoulos]] getting rejected by [[RichBitch Pinky]] [[MoodSwinger Gauthier]]. [[TrailersAlwaysLie Although nothing of this sort explicitly happens in the game]], [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation one can say that you can't really blame Pinky for doing this]], as Algie is infamous for his {{potty failure}}s. Also, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Algie]] [[EverybodyLovesBlondes prefers blondes]].
** As a {{blue blood}}, Pinky's family [[KissingCousins practices endogamy to preserve the family fortune]]. Her parents would like her to marry her cousin [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections Derby]] [[DirtyCoward Harrington]], but she dumps him after thinking she's the victim of this trope (turns out he's [[DisproportionateRetribution just 5 minutes late]]).

* A trio of female bandits try this on a male PC in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]''. If the PC is female, they instead lure her out to invite her to join the con. [[ButThouMust When]] said female PC turns them down, they try to mug her the same way as they would a male PC.

* ''Film/HappyGilmore'': Shooter getting Happy (the guy, not the emotion) out on "the ninth green at 9". More of an Embarrassing Location or Malicious Trap, since the point was getting Happy on the green when the sprinklers go off.

More of an Embarrassing Location or Malicious Trap, since the point was getting Happy on the green when the sprinklers go off. Happy takes getting soaked [[TranquilFury oddly calmly]], but then goes to find Shooter so he can "beat the living piss out of him." Virginia's comments make it clear that this isn't the first time he's done this, either.
