* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', during the Impel Down riot, Mr.2 does this with Buggy and Mr. 3. They get past Magellan and then manage to reach Level 5 (in order to save a captured and poisoned Luffy) thanks to Mr.2's ability to change his aspect. He disguises as Hannyabal and then takes the other two with him as his prisoners.

* Both ''[[OceansEleven Ocean's Twelve]]'' and ''Ocean's Thirteen'' featured one of Linus Caldwell's parents stepping in to pull this off -- his mom in Twelve, his dad in Thirteen. Poor Linus. How can you be an effective high-stakes thief when your parents won't stop looking over your shoulder?

* In ''SecondhandLions'', one of the stories told by the uncles featured this. * In ''TheProposition'', The Burns Gang infiltrates the police station by having Two-Bob put on full traditional Aboriginal dress and war paint while Sam and Arthur steal police uniforms and drag him into town as their prisoner. * ''BloodDiamond'', although it lasts about twenty seconds, (just long enough for the soldiers to lower their guard and the "prisoner" [[JustShootHim to shoot them]]) and is done to cross a bridge.

* In ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', Bane and two of his mercenaries let themselves get captured so he can find out exactly who Dr. Pavel made a deal with instead of him. That soldier who informs the CIA agent that the hooded prisoners worked for Bane? It might take a second viewing of the film to realize that he is Bane's right-hand sniper, Barsad, posing as a Uzbekistan militant. ** Later, when Bruce returns to Gotham, this is the method through which he gets to Fox, who can help him reach his backup Batsuit. First, he enlists Selina Kyle by appealing to her better nature and offering her the Clean Slate program (it is hinted that a Trojan Prisoner ploy will be used when Bruce tells her "I need you to find out where they're holding him [Fox], then take me in"). The steps after that are simple: Bruce lets himself get captured by Bane's men, who put a bag over his head and take him to the holding tank where Lucius Fox and Miranda Tate are being held. After he is deposited, Selina comes down and tells the mercenaries that Bane wants Bruce and Fox isolated from the others. They are led upstairs with a few mercenaries, and once out of sight from anyone else, she uses her CombatStilettos to knock out the mercenaries and unlocks Fox's handcuffs: -->'''Lucius Fox:''' I like your new girlfriend, Mr. Wayne! -->'''Selina Kyle:''' He should be so lucky. ** Also done in the ''Film/TheDarkKnight''. After a surprisingly elaborate chase, the Joker is captured and sent to the cooler to be transported to Blackgate. However not only does he have a Plan B that results in Harvey and Rachel getting kidnapped and put in death traps. He implants a bomb in one of his henchmen, likewise has him arrested and taken to the G.C.P.D. After Batman and Gordan are busy trying to save Harvey and Rachel, he coaxes a fight with the guard looking over him, wins, holds the guard hostage then detonates the bomb. With the building in disarray, he's free and clear to capture Lau, his intended target, and escape.

* ''TreasureIsland'': Long John Silver pulls this with Jim, who'd been genuinely captured by Silver and the other pirates earlier. Silver's practical reason for keeping Jim alive is that he's his best chance to escape the gallows if things go south, as Silver suspects they might, ''and'' an extra gun hand against the pirates who'll inevitably turn on them once that happens. However, it's never entirely clear whether Silver would have kept his word to keep Jim alive if things had gone according to plan...

* Chase, of the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, does this using his adopted daughter as the captive, in order to make a rescue attempt. Coincidentally, two other groups of characters use similar disguises to perform the exact same rescue, each of their own volition. After they meet up with each other, they make their way out with the rescuees playing the captives.

* In the ''Literature/XWingSeries'' novels, part of the plan to retake Coruscant from the Empire is to [[BoxedCrook take dangerous criminals]], a significant part of the intergalactic crime syndicate Black Sun, from the prison world Kessel, then smuggle them to Coruscant where they will cause havok and distract Imperial forces.

** "[[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Side Trip]]", a novella written by both TimothyZahn and MichaelStackpole, has Thrawn-in-Mandalorian-armor pull a blaster on Corran and his father after guiding them into a mutual enemy's clutches. Thrawn, assumed to be a bounty hunter going with the money, exchanges threats with Corran, telling him that he'll "[[MultitaskedConversation seek you out and take care of you personally]]" and that ''he'' would be the only thing between Corran and freedom, even grabbing the cell bars and shaking them after Corran and his father are imprisoned. After Thrawn and the mutual enemy have left, Corran's father shows his son that the bar-shaking move was a cover, letting Thrawn stick a molecular stiletto - think tiny lightsaber with a ''very'' fragile blade - on the bar. "Taking care of you personally" meant that when they escaped and got back to him, Thrawn would be in a better tactical position to start shooting, and they'd be on the same side.

* Used in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'', by faking the capture and delivery of Bartolomeo d'Alviano to the French, in order for Ezio to get close and assassinate the Baron de Valois. Bartolomeo's captors are all his own troops (and Ezio) wearing stolen French uniforms. * ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'' has this as a gameplay mechanic. Connor can summon Assassins disguised as Redcoats to take him "prisoner" and march him into heavily fortified locations. * A villainous example: The intro of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' has Batman dragging SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker off to Arkham after thwarting a hostage situation that involved the Mayor that was instigated by the latter, noting that it was suspiciously easy this time around. Turns out, he's right and it was all part of the Joker's plan to take over the madhouse. Turns out that when you take an insane person to the asylum, you're just taking him home. * In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', Deadshot is smuggled into the city by pretending to be an ordinary Blackgate prisoner. He was part of Hugo Strange's plan to exterminate the city.

** The [[XWingSeries Wraiths]] once pull a weird version with actual prisoners. The plan goes like this: Wraiths start a [[BarBrawl bar fight]] with Imperial pilots; more Wraiths show up dressed as military police and arrest all the fighters; Imperials get knocked out on the way back to the stockade, and the Wraiths from the bar change into police uniform too; all Wraiths infiltrate the base [[DressingAsTheEnemy as fake guards]] with real (unconscious) prisoners. Mind, they got the idea because, earlier in the book, agents of Warlord Zsinj tried to do this to them...and failed when one of the Wraiths saw through it.
