* ''HajimeNoIppo'': When Sendo arrives to spar with [[TheRival Miyata]], Ippo isn't allowed to go watch because the gym had officially cut all ties to the Miyata family. In order to give Ippo an excuse to go watch the fight anyway, his gymmates send him to [[ImpossibleTask buy them some nonexistent products]], including Pokarimin C drink, Tsuchinoko drink, Arowana Cola, Doctor Pappy, and next month's issue of a magazine. Surprisingly, he does find a Tsuchinoko drink.

* In ''HistorysStrongestDiscipleKenichi'', Shiba sends Takeda on several of these before he'll take him on as a student. Takeda somehow manages to pull it off. Shiba takes this as a sign that fate wants him to train Takeda, and takes him on as a disciple.

* In fic '''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5464274/1/So-You-Think-You-Had-A-Bad-Hair-Day So You Think You Had a Bad Hair Day]]''', Creator/AAPessimal tops this with Euryate, the one gorgon officer in the Watch, convincing a gullible Fred Colon that the un-named meat on the revolving spit in the Ephebian kebab shop is the flesh of the one-legged ''monopedos'' rabbit. So called as it only has one leg and hunting it calls for skill and fast reflexes as nobody can predict the way it will bounce on its one massively muscled leg. Stavros the kebab-shop-owner joins in with the joke, and Fred is utterly convinced.

-->"On my first day on the building site, I was ready to be sent off on some stupid errand or other--for a bucket of "striped paint" or something--and sure enough, someone told me to go and get an "air ambulance". ''[tuts and rolls eyes]'' I showed him, though. Wandered around for a bit and then came back and said I couldn't find one anywhere. You should've seen his face!...It was blue.''

* In episode 3 of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', the Red team sent their rookie Pvt. Donut to go fetch some elbow grease and some headlight fluid from "the store". He returned with the Blue flag, thereby starting the plot proper. ** Made even funnier by the fact that he instantly caught on that they were sending him on a Snipe Hunt with the elbow grease. He was completely fooled by headlight fluid though.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'' features a literal example. Carl sends Russell away on one to get him to stop annoying him. [[spoiler:Eventually, he actually finds one, although it's a bit bigger than he expected.]] Alpha sent Dug away on a literal Snipe Hunt as well, due to the fact that Dug's foolishness was viewed a burden on the pack. [[spoiler: True to this trope, he finds the bird.]] The bird becomes a principal character of the film! What makes it even funnier is that Carl truly believed that it was impossible because he didn't know that there is such a bird as a snipe.
