** In the first investigation phase of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'''s 5th case, [[spoiler:Edgeworth]] spends his whole time investigating [[spoiler:Larry's]] psycholocks, only to learn a useless piece of irrelevant information, only to find out he had another, more important secret hidden by ''five more'' psycholocks. [[spoiler:Edgeworth]] is so frustrated that he just decides to pull the secret out of him in court the next day, and ends the investigation right then and there.

* Invoked in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' by the final boss of the [[OmnicidalManiac No Mercy]] route. [[MediumAwareness This enemy knows you can]] SaveScum, and simply defeating you in battle is therefore not good enough to stop you -- [[SNKBoss they need to make the fight so ridiculously unfair]] that you ''give up on beating the boss'' and stop playing entirely.

* In ''Film/DoctorStrange'', [[spoiler:the hero provokes the BiggerBad into this to save the Earth. [[EldritchAbomination Dormammu]] is so far above him in terms of power that Strange has no chance of winning in a fight. However, since Dormammu exists in a timeless dimension, Strange uses magic to lock them both in a 15-second long GroundhogDayLoop, where all Dormammu can do is kill him over and over and over again. Since Dormammu can't escape the loop to conquer Earth (or any other worlds), he gets so frustrated that he BEGS Strange to stop and agrees to leave Earth alone.]]

* [[spoiler:Sans]] from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' deliberately makes it an InvokedTrope should you fight him: He knows you can come back to your [[SaveScumming SAVE]] anytime he beats you, so he tries to make his boss battle so frustrating that you just RageQuit in frustration. [[spoiler: All because he knows EvilOnlyHasToWinOnce for the game to be forever tainted, and he doesn't want that, he only fights you should you go the [[KillThemAll Genocide route]].]]

More broadly and figuratively speaking, daily life can be considered a kind of "game" people play, and its various situations a variety of mini-games. Some people, when they perceive a given situation as monstrously unfair, will do this in place of simply [[KnowWhenToFoldEm cutting their losses and refusing to play anymore]] or [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere fleeing in abject terror when they're losing]]; publicly announcing the decision to quit while denouncing the "game" itself is often considered less shameful and more socially respectable than mere forfeiture or flight.
