* A [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything rather chilling]] example from the ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' fic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11297352/25/Redemption "Redemption."]] During the Mountain Glen mission, Coco comes across [[spoiler:a bag personalized with Blake Belladonna's name, and returns it to her. Blake insists it isn't hers, but opens it to try and figure out where it came from.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', the Healing Room segment ends at a big blue button circled by a flashing red message which reads "Warning: Do not push this button!" Phi is convinced that this trope is in full effect, whereas Sigma thinks it's a standout case of ReversePsychology. [[spoiler:Sure enough, Phi's absolutely correct - pressing it blows up ''the entire facility''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In almost any tag team match between heels and faces, the heel team will do something to get the face outside the ring to come after them. 99% of the time the face falls for it and gets the ref's attention, allowing the bad guys to double team his poor partner.

Added DiffLines:

* The old jingle for Chiquita bananas warned consumers that they should never refrigerate bananas because they're a tropical fruit that hails from warm climates. What happens if you do it anyway? [[spoiler:The skin darkens a bit, but the fruit stays fresh for a substantially longer time. The people selling them obviously don't want that, because then you're not running out to buy more as frequently.]]

* [[http://www.yesbutnobutyes.com/archives/2009/09/the_rape_tunnel.html The Rape Tunnel]], an art installation by Richard Whitehouse. ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: If you enter this tunnel then the artist will attempt to rape you. It's a followup to his other piece, The Punch-You-in-the-Face Tunnel. [[spoiler:They were both [[http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide/2009/09/artlurker_explains_rape_tunnel.php fabricated stories]], and the actual Schmuck Bait was to see who would take the story seriously and how; in this regard, it was [[{{Troll}} successful if not predictable in light of this entire page]].]]

See also BriarPatching, GenreBlindness, TooDumbToLive, IdiotBall, DistressBall, WhatDoesThisButtonDo, PressXToDie, ReversePsychology, WhoWouldBeStupidEnough, TheWindowOrTheStairs, DontTouchItYouIdiot, and TemptingFate. If taking the bait doesn't hurt you, it's a FakeTrap and possibly a ParanoiaGambit. If taking it does something ''good'', it's ViolationOfCommonSense. If that something good is being able to progress, it's StupidityIsTheOnlyOption (TrapIsTheOnlyOption for the non-video game version). If someone fell into a Schmuck Bait one day but understandably didn't noise about it, he may be subject to {{Oblivious Mocker|y}}ies. Not to be mistaken for SnarkBait, [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar nor for something that actually baits]] [[YiddishAsASecondLanguage your schmuck]].

* "This ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'' VN just looks like some cutesy, saccharine DatingSim. But why is there a blatant ContentWarning on the Steam page about disturbing content? And why are the Steam tags full of stuff like [[spoiler: "Psychological Horror", "Dark", "Violent" and "Gore"?]]"
