Any time I left the Dream, he found me. He could smell me, track me through the streets, and every time I fled he ran me down. I screamed, he snarled. I pleaded, begged, cried. He didn't care. It was all just animal noise, to him.

* The trope is a common staple in the films of Creator/FritzLang and Creator/AlfredHitchcock. Lang for instance played the trope straight in ''Film/{{M}}'' and the ''Dr. Mabuse'' films, while in ''Die Spinnen'' and ''Spione'' he used the inversion.

However, Dr. Kimble escapes and ultimately manages to turn the tables. * ''Film/TheNet'', in which a lone computer programmer starts out being pursued by a seemingly all-powerful conspiracy but finally hunts down its leader. Angela Bennet's switch from hunted to hunter in the final act is very pronounced. * In ''Film/TheSearchers'' the role of hunter and hunted switch several times between Ethan Edwards and Chief Scar throughout the course of the movie.

Adventure stories and thrillers frequently invert the trope, telling the story from the point of view of the hunted one who becomes the hunter. This is especially the case in stories where the hunter is not a single person, but a conspiracy; here the intended prey has to solve the mystery of who is attacking them and why, and then find out who belongs to the conspiracy and whom they can trust as allies to help bring it down.

* In one episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/DextersLabratory Dial M For Monkey]]'' called "Huntor", where the episode's villain [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame wants to hunt Monkey]] and has weapons that can counter Monkey's powers, Monkey decides to fight back without his powers and, in a homage to ''Film/{{Predator}}'', uses the resources around him to turn the tables and win. Even more hilarious, after Monkey escapes, he drops Huntor on a planet inhabited by giant hillbilly aliens, two of which chase after him with their laser shotguns.

* In ''Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy'' this trope applies to... well, anybody who tries to victimize Lisbeth Salander. The earliest example is advocate Nils Bjurman, her legal guardian, who is under impression that Lisbeth is a mentally retarded, helpless young woman whom he can assault whenever he can. Unfortunately for him, after he rapes her, she returns to his apartment with a taser, chains him to his bed, rapes him back, reveals she has a tape showing his rape on her, gives him a tattoo saying that he is a rapist and a scumbag, and proceeds to use blackmail to keep him in check until the end of his sorry life. Bjurman actually has an OhCrap moment, bur it's too late.
