* In earlier chapters of ''Manga/AirGear'' , Sleeping Forest in inferred as this with normal people as prey, other Storm Riders as the hunters, and the team Sleeping Forest is the forest itself who hunts back the hunters, as implied in this poem:
--->"The trees entangle their arms and stretch upward into the sky."
--->"The budding leaves devour the light, adding depth to the forest's darkness."
--->"The hunter does not notice the glare nor the claws of the beast biding in the darkness."
--->"Tonight is the night when the hunter will be hunted."
--->"This is the Sleeping Forest."

** In expansion pack for VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind, Bloodmoon, the main plot was centered on Hircine kidnapping various dangerous and powerful figures for a once-in-a-generation hunt. Unfortunately for him, one of these is the player, and when Hircine himself shows up to carry out his hunt as FinalBoss, you have the chance to make the ''God'' of Hunters the Hunted.

Unfortunately for him, one of these is the player, and when Hircine himself shows up to carry out his hunt as FinalBoss, you have the chance to make the ''God'' of Hunters the Hunted.Hunted... because Hircine ''gives'' you the chance by deliberately limiting himself to only one aspect. If he defeats you, he wins. If you defeat him, he ''still'' wins, because what greater expression of this trope is there than that?

* ''TabletopGame/HunterTheReckoning'' and its counterpart ''TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil'' can have this as their premise. In both directions even: the Hunters that are the PlayerCharacters can hunt creatures that would normally hunt humans, but the Hunters in return can become hunted as well.

* In the first season of ''Manga/DragonBallZ'', Gohan was left in the wilderness by Piccolo as part of his TrainingFromHell. A ferocious T-rex like dinosaur tries to eat him. As Gohan becomes stronger, the tables get turned. Gohan eventually chases down the dinosaur ''every day'' and chops off a piece of its tail for breakfast. By the end, the dinosaur's tail is all but gone and it is ''terrified'' of Gohan.

* ''[[Literature/TheMostDangerousGame The Most Dangerous Game]]''. A big-game hunter falls off a yacht and finds refuge on an island that is home to a Russian aristocrat. This aristocrat is also a highly-skilled big game hunter. So highly skilled that he's hunted just about every animal and quickly became bored with simply hunting them all over again. So he forces the people who get shipwrecked on his island into a "game" in which he hunts them. The aristocrat is another example, since his "prey" sneaks into his home to ambush him.

[[EgomaniacHunter The hunter]] is usually the one pursuing the prey, be it a literal example of one hunting animals or the {{Villain}} relentlessly hunting his victim in a sporting example of HuntingTheMostDangerousGame. But in some cases, the hunted gains resolve or the upper hand and turns the tables on his pursuer, turning the hunter into the hunted.

Once the victim pulls this off, the hunter's game falls apart, and he will be forced to recognize his victim as an actual threat to him. The turnaround embodied in this trope usually signifies that TheHero will soon defeat the {{Villain|s}} and put an end to his twisted game.

This trope has roots as far back as Myth/GreekMythology, where a quite literal hunter, Actaeon, is [[BalefulPolymorph transformed into a deer]] by Artemis and eventually torn apart by his own dogs.

* In ''RedHotRidingHood'', the Wolf, while trying to hunt down Red, instead encounters her Granny, who becomes his AbhorrentAdmirer at first sight and chases the Wolf through her building.
* In the ''TalesFromTheCryptkeeper'' episode "Hunted," a JerkAss hunter is poaching in Africa and runs afoul of a supposedly mythical beast. Determined to catch this beast and make a profit, the hunter pursues it deeper and deeper into the jungle. Just when he thinks he has it, the beast springs its own trap to capture him instead. [[spoiler: Turns out, the beast was once a JerkAss hunter himself and had been cursed. Forced to live in the wild, he learned to respect nature and its creatures. He regains his human form and passes the curse onto his captive to start the cycle over again.]]

* At the end of the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "WesternAnimation/RabbitFire", as Bugs and Daffy continue to pull away posters saying "Rabbit Season" and "Duck Season" alternately, each trying to convince Elmer to shoot the other, they finally reach the final poster, which reads "Elmer Season". In the next shot, we see Bugs and Daffy dressed as hunters, carrying rifles and "Hunting for Elmers".
