** Subverted with another contest where the sheriff deliberately offers a prize he knows is useless to Robin - a pair of cows - because he ''doesn't'' want Robin to attend. (What he doesn't expect is for Little John, who'd listened to the townsfolk and knew full well why the sheriff chose that prize, to decide to take part instead, winning the prize and donating it to the fair for immediate use.)

** In "Hell Train: Wangnan", in an inverse of the usual case, Hoaqin (who is a villain and has the upper hand, hence the reversal) chooses to accept Prince and Miseng's offer to serve him because he thinks that, trap or no, he can use them to play against his own "allies".

** In "Hell Train: The Name Hunt Station", when Baam is fighting Kaiser, he sees that she's deliberately leaving him only one open path to attack and recognises it must be a trap. Eventually, he goes for it anyway since there's so little other option.

* Secrets in ''VideoGame/Hearthstone'' trigger the moment a condition is fulfilled, e.g. attacking with a minion. As long as the condition is right, the Secret will not discriminate what gets affected; i.e. a Noble Sacrifice will still trigger when a 1/1 is attacking, wasting the Secret on an expendible minion. Thus, when confronted with them, the trick not only becomes successfully guessing what Secret is used, but also being able to trigger the Secret with minimal loss.

* In the Rimuldar chapter of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestBuilders'', you're supposed to rescue a villager who fell ill somewhere around the Prickly Wilds, an area laced with paralyzing Tingleweeds. The villager fell into a pitfall trap designed to keep trespassers out, and the fastest way to get to him is to fall into that same pitfall trap and then dig your way out of the hole.

* This is how the final fight in the True Pacifist route in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' takes shape. While you and the bosses all make friends after Toriel stops your fight with Asgore, [[spoiler:Flowey]] takes the human souls Asgore had collected, and also takes the bosses hostage. When all the other friends you made come to help, he takes all their souls too, and transforms into [[spoiler:Asriel Dreemurr]].
