* If you happened to see a person named [[LegacyCharacter Patches]] in any RPG created by ''Creator/FromSoftware'', be sure to trigger all the traps set by him, because by doing so, you can befriend him and have him as a merchant, just don't say you're a [[BerserkButton cleric]].

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''Series/{{Angel}}'' are both pretty fond of playing with this. On season is bookended with Buffy walking into two different traps for two different reasons, only to discover that ''both'' of them were just red herrings to distract her.

* In one of the last Russian Mafia missions in ''{{VideoGame/Mercenaries}}: Playground of Destruction'', the player is assigned to help Josef, the Mafia leader's assistant, with a negotiation. The player character says "You ''do'' realize this is a trap, right?" and Josef responds with the page quote. Sure enough, Sergei (said leader) is trying to tie up loose ends by killing his overly-ambitious assistant and the mercenary before either of them can become a danger to him. [[spoiler:[[HoistByHisOwnPetard This leads to Josef deposing Sergei and hiring the merc to kill him.]]]]

* A supplement for West End Game's ''TabletopGame/StarWarsD6'' system detailed some of the Rebellion's special forces culture, and one of the things was "Bursting", defined as going into an obvious trap with far more firepower than the trap was ever ready for.

* Towards the end of ''VideoGame/FairyFencerF'', Paiga leads the party into a trap, claiming that where they're going has something that the party can use to bring down the big bad company Dorfa. There's nothing there, but Fang doesn't care much anyway. He knew there was a good chance it was probably a trap and so he's made sure the party is ready.

'''Bruce:''' I didn't.\\
'''Terry:''' Then for all you knew, you were walking into a trap with no way out.\\
'''Bruce:''' Sometimes you have to.

* In ''Series/PowerRangersSPD''
** The villains have captured the Rangers' friend and ally Kat Manx, and as they dare the Rangers to come get her Kat warns them not to as it's a trap - Emperor Gruumm then confirms that ''yes'' [[ObviousTrap it's a trap]], but they're not going to abandon her, are they?
** Late in the series, a team of evil Rangers appear and challenge the heroes. The Rangers discuss that accepting the challenge may be a trap, but ignoring it may ''also'' be a trap. They decide to accept.



* Played straight with a bit of humor in TheSpectacularSpiderman, in which the Green Goblin invites his two greatest enemies to come alone to an incredibly dangerous abandoned foundry - which both of them quickly peg as a trap but which he baits with something neither of them can afford to ignore. Nobody is fooled, and not even the Goblin takes it seriously.
--> (when it's revealed he lied) "Yes yes, I'm a big fat liar. Like we didn't all know this was a trap."
