* Kevin [=McKallister=], of ''Film/HomeAlone'' fame, would be the perfect example, booby-traping his entire house and causing AmusingInjuries to the pair of thieves that tried to break into it; and, in the sequel, [[RecycledINSPACE an abandoned building in New York]]. In fact, the whole series is based on a kid being this and outsmarting grown men.

A character whose style of fighting isn't about hitting the opponent directly. This character far prefers arranging {{Booby Tra}}ps in such a way that, when the opponent arrives, he only has to let the victim act, or activate the traps with minimal effort, to utterly dominate said opponent. DifficultButAwesome is almost a requisite, as these characters are different from the basic AttackAttackAttack mindset of many gamers, favoring taking their time to indirectly cause their own victory.

* The Corruptor archetype in ''CityOfVillains'' had a secondary set simply named "Traps" that was full of items like trip mines, poison gas mines, caltrops, sticky web grenades, an acid-grenade launching mortar, and a portable force field generator as superpowers.

The set was designed to support the player and their team mostly by [[StandardStatusEffects debuffing]] the enemy and causing additional [[GradualGrinder damage over time]].

** The Blaster archetype in ''CityOfHeroes'' had a similar secondary called devices that was less crowd control oriented and replaced some times like the portable force field generator with a personal cloaking device.

* In ''Manga/BlackClover'', Xerx, or at least someone impersonating Xerx, specializes in magic traps. His preferred style is to explore the area his opponents are going to fight him in ahead of time and BoobyTrap the place as thoroughly as he can. He is not a team player though--when he has to fight with allies, [[ManipulativeBastard he will manipulate his allies into falling into his traps]] to use them as bait [[LuredIntoATrap so his opponents fall into even worse traps]]. This approach frustrates Asta to no end, considering Asta keeps winding up [[ButtMonkey as Xerx's decoy]].

* The ''Videogame/{{Deception}}'' series of video games (including the most recent entry, titled ''Videogame/{{Trapt}}'' in the United States) - the player character in each game is anywhere between 'mostly harmless' and 'completely helpless' in direct combat, but possesses the ability to create powerful magical traps. Gameplay mostly consists of setting up a lethal series of traps, and then standing around looking vulnerable in the right spot to lure enemies into the line of fire.
