* In the ''WesternAnimation/DofusTheTreasuresOfKerubim'' episode Ecaflip City part 2, both poker games shown follow this trope, as well as AbsurdlyHighStakesPokerGame. The first game resulted in 3s over 10s, Jacks over Kings, 4 Queens, and 4 Aces, the later drawn purely by luck on the last round. In the second game, a J-7 straight is beaten by an A-10 straight. Justified in that they were being manipulated by the god of luck.

* In ''WebVideo/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', the Emperor challenges Kitten to a Paradox-Billiards-Vostroyan-Roulette-Fourth Dimensional-Hypercube-Chess-Strip Poker a.k.a. TabletopGame/YuGiOh. In his first turn, Kitten lays down a monster card face-down. The Emperor proceeds to pull out a sixteen-card combo that leaves him with an indestructible monster and an indestructible spell that forces Kitten to attack directly with any monster he brings out and destroys it, while both are down to 100 Life Points. Kitten wins by using two cards - a spell that returns all spell cards to hand and a monster that returns an enemy's monster card to hand upon being placed, which then erases the Emperor's last Life Points.

* ''Film/PokerNight'' has the main character produce four twos to defeat a full house in the ultimate game. However, Jeter is shown still in chains and he notes that two of the players are already dead, so it's ambiguous as to whether he ever actually played that hand in the real game, or if it was symbolic of that he could still win.

* And, quite obviously, ''not'' truth in television, even though it may seem like it because the unimportant, more statistically sound hands are rarely televised.

* In ''VideoGame/DeadRising2'' there are a couple of gambling magazines you can find around the mall - while carrying them your odds of a hitting the jackpot on the slot machines are raised (somehow), and they will also magically give you better cards while playing Texas Hold 'Em against other survivors in the safe house. With all the gambling books, your hole cards are guaranteed to be a pair on every draw.

* A friendly low-stakes Super Hero charity poker game once got derailed by the Kingpin in ''ComicBook/SpiderMan''. The game came down to Spidey vs. Kingpin. He beat Kingpin's hand with four of a kind--he even pulled "two threes and another two threes" which, humorously enough, tricked Kingpin into a villain monologue.
