* This was also the reason the villains went after [[spoiler:Kyrie]] in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry4''. [[spoiler:They wanted to use Dante to power the Savior, but weren't quite equal to the task of capturing him, so after Agnus discovered that Nero had demonic power of his own and a relationship with Kyrie, he and Sanctus used her as bait to lure Nero into their trap so that the two of them could be used instead]].

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', Shepard is used as the bait by Samara to lure her serial killer daughter into a place where Samara can safely kill her.
** And in the third game's Citadel DLC, Shepard uses Joker as bait when [=CAT6=] starts shooting up the sushi restaurant by telling him to go warn the crew, then grabbing and killing the first merc who sees him to acquire a weapon. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Joker is pretty furious about it]].

* In the ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'' fanfic ''FanFic/Eternity'', Nagato was the flagship of Operation Ten-Go instead of the damaged Yamato, and was captured by the Americans. Knowing that keeping her as a war trophy will enrage the japanese, they intentionally set her up to be a kamikaze bait, with William D. Porter as a lone escort. Despite orders to let the suicide bomber do as they wished, Willie D's Captain ordered them shot down since Nagato's skeleton crew haven't evacuated yet. This was the start of their friendship in their future lives as shipgirls.
