* PlayedWith in ''Literature/RiverOfTeeth''. The story involves [[TheLeader Houndstooth]] assembling a CaperCrew of the usual suspects and the target is a corrupt businessman running several [[TheCasino casino boats]], however, the goal is not to rob him but to remove thousands of feral hippos from the lake where the aforementioned corrupt businessman is feeding cheating customers to them. Preferably without him noticing until it's too late. The ''operation'', as Houndstooth insists on calling it, is also sanctioned by the federal government. This stops none of the crew members from calling the entire thing a ''caper'' and treating it as such, much to Houndstooth's annoyance.

* In ''AntMan'', a genius millionaire gives master cat burglar [[TheHero Scott]] a superhero outfit that lets him shrink down to the size of an ant, all to steal exactly the same technology from an unscrupulous businessman [[CutLexLuthorACheck who plans to sell it]] to some very shady types. About half the plan is "use the suit" which justifies otherwise unrealistic tropes like AirVentPassageway, and the other half is the regular standard heist techniques that Scott and his fellow criminals do anyway.
