* There is a complicated, twisted example in ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga The Vor Game]]'' where both the shooter ''and'' the shoot-ee were running a mutual bluff on a third party. The story contains numerous betrayals and counter-reversals throughout, but ends with Gregor Vorbarra, Emperor of Barrayar, as the prisoner of Cavillo, a mercenary whom hopes to portray herself as Gregor's ''rescuer'' and persuade him into marriage. Miles Vorkosigan, friend/cousin to Gregor who is trying to ''really'' rescue him, has set himself up as a fellow schemer and power-player that Cavillo will need to either team-up with or eliminate in order to take control of Barrayar. With Gregor playing along with Cavillo to convince her that he has succumbed to her control, they board Miles' ship and Miles immediately threatens to blow Gregor into atoms with a plasma cannon. Claiming that it is just a bluff, to assure Cavillo that he can predict and control Miles Gregor walks forward until the muzzle of the plasma cannon is against his chest...[[BatmanGambit which physically separates him from Cavillo and allows Miles to trap her behind walls of blast doors]].

** Two back-to-back episodes earlier in the series also play with this trope, possibly making the above example a callback. In "The Glass Ballerina", the "Other" Colleen tries to convince Sun she's not a killer, only to wind up with a bullet in the gut for her trouble. In a flashback in "Further Instructions", Locke is faced with the same dilemma while pointing a rifle at undercover cop Eddie. Locke can't do it and Eddie walks away unharmed.
