** As they make their escape from the Kyln, Peter Quill/Starlord returns to the prison to get an important possession of his that was confiscated, but leaves the other cast members on his ship. They scramble to find the orb, only for the camera to pan to Peter as he's tossing the orb around, keeping it as extra insurance to make sure they don't leave without him.

* In Chapter 6 of ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', Mario and company finally get to the Poshley Sanctum to find that the Shadow Sirens had just broken in and took the the Crystal Star off of its pedestal, only for Pennington to reveal after they leave that the one they took was a fake, and the ''real'' MacGuffin was more well-hidden.

* In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', in TheReveal of the second case, we learn that [[spoiler: Tenma Taro was actually a large lump of gold that the superstitious townspeople were tricked into believing was a {{Youkai}}; Florent L'Belle broke into the Forbidden Chamber to try to steal it, but it had already been stolen decades ago by a PhantomThief.]] Kind of a more somber example, since it essentially rendered Rex Kyubi's murder completely pointless.
