** In a later episode, they use [[HollywoodNerd Hardison]]'s violin skills to distract everybody... unfortunately that includes themselves and they aren't finished with the heist by the time he is done with his solo.

* In Lee Lightner's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} SpaceWolf novel ''Wolf's Honour'', Ragnar is stunned when [[spoiler:Bulveye]] says he must be the distraction and so Ragnar and the other younger Space Wolves will have the honor of facing down Madox and [[spoiler:retrieving the Spear of Russ]]; he had assumed that the older Space Wolves would [[GloryHound claim the privilege]].

* Damian Wolfe in ''MegaManStarForce 3'' volunteers for this role without any outside input when Jack Corvus attacks Echo Ridge Elementary, even calling out to Geo and his band over the intercom to get their asses to the roof while he acts as a decoy. Pretty badass considering [A] he doesn't have too much combat experience, [B] he's the [[AlmightyJanitor gardener]] and thus doesn't get into hot water that often, and [C] he's [[ElementalRockPaperScissors vulnerable to fire]], which comprises much of Jack's arsenal.

* In the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS2E6FracturedHouse "Fractured House"]], Lance Hunter needs to distract Marcus Scarlotti and his {{Mooks}} for a minute or so, to buy time for May and [[Comicbook/{{Mockingbird}} Bobbi]] to get into position. So he walks straight up to them, claiming to be another mercenary working for Comicbook/{{HYDRA}}, like them, (he ''is'' a mercenary, just one loyal to Comicbook/{{SHIELD}}) and offers them beers. While Scarlotti and his team don't buy Hunter's claim for a second, he keeps them confused long enough for May and Bobbi to catch the villains off guard.
