** As much as the name suggests, [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Trap_Master the Trap Master]] is not this trope.

** As much as the name suggests, [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Trap_Master the Trap Master]] is not this trope. (It is, in fact, an inversion: It ''destroys'' traps rather than building them).

* This is what Fred from the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' franchise ''wants'' to be. Usually, however, his traps never work as intended. In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', Fred's affinity for traps is exaggerated into a borderline fetishistic obsession. However, in this series, he actually ''is'' this trope and most of his traps actually do work fantastically, so the obsession may have its good points.

* Dr. Doofenshmirtz from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasandFerb'' does this in almost every episode. Every time Perry the Platypus comes in, the first thing that always happens is that he gets caught in a trap, which is different every time. While he's trapped, Doofenshmirtz tells him his evil plan, but then Perry finds some way out of the trap and thwarts him.

In one episode, in fact, he rigs an entire ship with them- only to fall victim to his own traps repeatly.

* RepairmanJack turns out to be one of these in ''Legacies'', in which he'd revealed to keep an entire ''decoy house'' rigged with traps, ready to spring on anyone who comes after him for payback.
* The serial-killer duo from Michael Slade's ''Ripper'' rig an isolated mansion with deathtraps, then invite a bunch of victims over for a murder-mystery dinner.
* Darian from HeraldsOfValdemar is the son of two trappers. When he needs to defend his home, he leads the enemy into trap after trap.
* Malazan sappers in the ''MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' are often deadly in their use of traps against the enemies of the Malazan Empire. It helps that they are one of the few factions with access to conventional explosives and have a well deserved reputation for insanity.

* Tsumugu from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is an example of this, as he arranges gauntlets of traps while others chase him. As shown in episodes 5 and 12, his [[HyperspaceArsenal spacial limit defying trap armory]] consists of remote tracking machine guns/rocket launchers, gas grenades, proximity mines, remote explosives, falling irons, frag grenades and more. As the main character remarks while chasing him, "when did he have time to set up a trap like that?"

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4573620/14/A-Drop-of-Poison A Drop of Poison]]'', Naruto makes a trap course good enough that ANBU and an actual specialist are caught by it. It's noted that the only things truly missing are chakra sensitive traps (which he doesn't know how to make) and lethality since it was designed to test academy students.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Pernida has the ability to plant his nerve cells inside inanimate objects, allowing him to move and control them. He does such a thorough job of controlling the environment, he manages to surprise the normally CrazyPrepared Mayuri Kurotsuchi a few times and incapacitates [[StrongButUnskilled Kenpachi Zaraki]] after catching him once.

Pernida has the ability to plant his nerve cells inside inanimate objects, allowing him to move and control them. He does such a thorough job of controlling the environment, he manages to surprise the normally CrazyPrepared Mayuri Kurotsuchi a few times and incapacitates [[StrongButUnskilled Kenpachi Zaraki]] after catching him once.
** Szayel, one of Aizen's Espada, has a palace rigged up with fiendish devices that seal off Renji and Ishida's powers and keep them from escaping. He'd be a tough opponent anywhere, but on his home turf he's almost unbeatable. He makes mincemeat of them until Mayuri, who's been watching and is ready for Szayel's tricks, saves the day.
** It's no accident that Mayuri was in both of the previous fights. He's a Trap Master who brings the traps to you -- Kubo has to pit him against similarly tricky characters because no one else would last long enough. And while we've never seen Mayuri fight in his Squad 12 headquarters, we know they're incredibly hard to break into (though to be fair, we know this because [[TheWorfEffect Urahara keeps doing it anyway]]).

* In ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'', we have [[VisualNovel/{{AIR}} Misuzu Kamio]]: Fighting style-wise, she´s pretty similar to [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Testament]], as she places invisible traps in the ground and sticky traps in the air, as well as use tiered curses to drain her opponent's life bar (The difference is, while Testament uses his own blood, Misuzu uses juice).
