* The function of several cards in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''. One of the best examples is the Taunting Elf, which has the ability that when it attacks, everything capable of blocking it has to. This can be used to allow all the other creatures to attack unimpeded or to lure out a creature that normally wouldn't be used as a blocker. Since the elf is a 0/1 and thus, unless enhanced, is incapable of dealing or taking any damage, it generally doesn't survive the process.

Of course, you can enchant with something like Venom to make it kill everything that blocks it (a combo sometimes called "Creature Sweeper", since it will sweep all your opponent's creatures off the board).

* In ''Webcomic/TheFarSideOfUtopia'' Peter is clearly trying to bait the people looking for him to come after him, as he had no other reason to use his real name (he can clearly make fake ones, since he did for Mium).

If you're the Heroes then you need to look for volunteers. There are two versions that pop up. The first is one of the Heroes agrees to be TheBait risking a HeroicSacrifice. The other version is for the resident ButtMonkey or [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]] to become a [[GotVolunteered Less Than Willing Volunteer]]. [[MoreHeroThanThou A common resulting conversation]] in a FiveManBand is as follows:

Of course, [[GilliganCut the bait ends up being]] TheSmartGuy (Cue the "Why do I always have to be TheBait?" whining) or TheChick. Occasionally it will end up being TheLancer, which is more likely if he and TheHero are {{Rival}}s.

* In a chapter of ''Manga/DororonEnmaKun'' all fought about who had to be TheBait to catch a Youkai. Nobody wanted to be it, but Dororon, Yuki and Chapeauji finally agreed on Kappaeru -who was still refusing-. However Hitomi took pity on him and voluntereed. Given the followings events, maybe she should have shut her mouth. * In ''Anime/MazingerZ'', often Kouji voluntereed to be TheBait. Sayaka, too. Boss could be more willing or more reluctant to play bait depending on the situation. ** In one {{Crossover}} movie between ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' and ''Manga/GetterRobo'', he played bait to lure a monster to a deserted island. * On the rare occasions on ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' where the kids need live bait for a plan, they either go for Team Rocket or Ash. The giant Claydol had Ash and James (dressed as eggplants no less). * In one {{Flashback}} episode of ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', Team Satisfaction set a trap to ambush the Magician's Four. Unfortunately for Crow, he had to be the bait. (It wasn't revealed who decided he'd get that role. ''Fortunately'' for him, the plan worked.) * In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', this is the standard operating procedure where one group distracts the titan and the second group (usually more skilled) goes for the kill. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't. ** ''[[TheAce Mikasa]]'' ended up being decoy for the Female Titan as [[WorldsStrongestMan Levi]] demonstrates why he deserved his title of Humanity's Strongest. ** Armin used this to deal with the titans invading the supply room. ** This was the primary mission of the surviving soldiers in the Battle of Trost, to lure the titans to the opposite side of the city so the elite team could plug the wall. ** This turned out to be [[spoiler:Eren's ''true'' role in the 57th Expedition, with Erwin secretly using him to lure out titan shifters infiltrating the military]].
