* {{Zig Zagged| Trope}} a bit in the ''Anime/MegamanNTWarrior'' manga. There's a scene where Lan is told he's the one millionth customer of a restaurant, so he won a free helicopter ride as a prize. At this point, he and his friend Chaud are on the run from the government because of Megaman's new powers, which they fear. Once Lan goes up in the helicopter, he reveals that he knows that this whole "millionth customer" was a sham, and that this is an attempt to kidnap him and draw Megaman out, but he's willing to do it so that he'll see Megaman again. ''Immediately'' turned around, as he really has won the trip and this is a genuine prize, and the pilot has no idea who Lan is.
