* Played with in ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' #104 (Oct. 1972) - Quicksilver runs full-speed into a wall while being chased by a Sentinel. The Sentinel thinks that he is playing this trope. He wasn't - instead he was gambling that he would survive hitting the wall at speed, but the far more massive Sentinel wouldn't.

[[TropeNamer Named]] after the [[Literature/HarryPotter Quidditch]] technique where one team's Seeker will pretend to see the Snitch near the ground and go into a dive to attempt to lure the opposing Seeker into crashing into the ground. The Wronski Feint is first mentioned in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', and again in ''Literature/QuidditchThroughTheAges'' by [[Creator/JKRowling Kennilworthy Whisp]], wherein it was revealed to have been named after famed Polish Seeker Josef Wronski.

* Skandranon, the hero of the Mercedes Lackey & Larry Dixon novel ''[[HeraldsOfValdemar The Black Gryphon]]'' does this in the first chapter of the book, when he's being pursued by enemy fliers. It's subverted by the fact that he promptly runs straight into a tree himself shortly thereafter. Of course, it was a tree on ''his'' team's side of the warzone, which is what he was really worrying about.

** Also (sometimes) averted during the WWII Polish Campaign: [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons German]] Bf 110 pilots [[AwesomenessByAnalysis understood]] their large and heavy fighters would become hapless victims of the Wronski Feint if they attempted to dogfight [[BoringButPractical small and nimble PZL fighters]], so they used superior engine power to fight only in the vertical plane, by zoom-climbing towards the Poles, guns blazing, and repeat the shoot-out during the afterwards dive.
