** In "The Harvest of Kairos", the Liberator is captured this way while robbing a transporter of its cargo of valuable crystals. To avoid an ObviousTrap, TheDragon sacrifices three advanced Federation cruisers ''and'' has an ambush waiting inside the transporter. Having defeated what appear to be vigorous attempts to defend the cargo, our heroes trundle the cargo containers on board the Liberator without a second thought, not knowing there are more soldiers hidden inside.

* In ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' a group of bandits give the Raxd fortress enough firewood for the whole winter while posing as a farming family moving out of the area. The wood was laced with a toxin to make them ill when burned, with repeated exposure leading to comas. Once almost all of the guards are out of the picture with the remaining one severely ill they sneaked in and emptied the armory and winter stockpiles.

* A hilarious case of UnfortunateNames: Trojan Condoms. Either they're named for the city, which had its defenses fall, or it refers to the horse, which got the city to [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything open their defenses so they could be ravaged]]. Upon that last thought, perhaps FridgeBrilliance rears its head...[[note]] For those too ignorant to bother learning about the Illiad, the Trojan Prince Paris, with the aid of the Love goddess Aphrodite in form of [[LovePotion love inducing magic]], seduced the Spartan Queen Helen to come with him to Troy to elope of which this incident set off the Trojan War when Menelaus of Sparta created an alliance of Greek city-states to retrieve her. Thus the use of the name "Trojan" is a play on the idea of seduction and this is supposed to enhance a person's ability to seduce someone else[[/note]]

* A variation of this has brought concerns to various members of governments around the world regarding I.S.I.S./I.S.I.L. using a strategy much like this to inflict terror attacks upon other nations. More specifically, various intelligence services have picked up on chatter concerning the terror group's operatives plans to infiltrate groups of refugees seeking to escape the violence in Syria and Iraq in order to carry out offensive attacks against Western nations (of which at least one case has occurred in the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/November_2015_Paris_attacks Paris Terrorist attacks]] in which some of the perpetrators of the massacre posed as refugees going to Greece and subsequently collaborated with native born individuals who had become radicalized). For this reason, some have called for a moratorium on accepting refugees (at least until an adequate screening process can be put in place) out of concern that I.S.I.S. operatives will continue using this strategy to kill and harm as many people as possible.
