** In Season 11, [[spoiler: Lucifer offers to be the bigger fish to [[AncientEvil The Darkness]] a.k.a Amara, who he defeated before God created the universe, if Sam will allow Lucifer to use him as his vessel once again. After Sam refuses, Castiel takes him up on the offer and allows Lucifer to possess him.]] [[spoiler: Then it's [[AvertedTrope averted]] when it turns out that Lucifer was lying about having taken on Amara by himself in the past. Defeating her the first time took God and the four archangels working together to pull off. So while Lucifer is a pretty damn big fish, he's not nearly big enough to handle Amara on his own]].

* An inversion occurs in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' when the Borg ask for Janeway's help in eliminating Species 8472.
** Technically the Borg were just going to assimilate Voyager and its crew until Janeway talked them out of it, it's complicated.
*** Since Janeway was the one who wanted to ally with the Borg for safe passage through their space, and felt that Species 8472 gave them leverage, it may fit. Then again, because 8472 was kicking Borg ass bigtime, it may have been Summon Smaller Fish.

* [[TheElricSaga Elric of Melnibonë]] makes occasional use of this in his various adventures when he finds himself in over his own head and has the time and opportunity to enact the relevant summonings. Since most of the entities he calls upon are simply honoring their relevant pacts with him and/or the royal line of Melnibonë of their own free will (or what passes for it in some of the more alien cases), this help can be extremely useful with usually little risk of backfiring.

* When the party is beset by a large force of goblins in ''Literature/{{Below}}'', Gareth hopes using a [[TransformationRay polymorphosis wand]] on them will bring about this result. His first shot forces the goblins to deal with a huge beetle among their ranks. But a subsequent shot at a poorly-chosen target puts a much more dangerous creature between the party and the goblins.
