* ''SwordArtOnline'': Kirito's guild comes across a single chest in an otherwise empty secret room deep in a front-line dungeon. PlayedForDrama, since [[spoiler:only Kirito and Sachi realize it's a trap before it's too late, and everyone except [[SurvivorGuilt Kirito]] is killed in the ensuing fight. Even the guild leader, who wasn't present for the dungeon crawl, [[DrivenToSuicide commits suicide]] out of despair when Kirito tells him]].

* During the "Terminator Maid" arc of ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', Revy and Roberta prepare for a good old fashioned NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. Before so, Roberta points out that Revy's shoelaces are untied. Revy (whose shoelaces are ''always'' untied) thinks on it for a second... and looks anyway. At which point, Roberta promptly clocks her.
* The titular ArtifactOfDeath in ''Manga/DeathNote'' has the words "Death Note" written clearly across the cover, and pretty much sits on the ground like a big blinking sign that says, "Gee, [[BlatantLies I hope no one picks me up and uses me for world domination]]." Then along comes VillainProtagonist Light Yagami. [[CorruptTheCutie Guess what happens.]]

Then along comes VillainProtagonist Light Yagami. [[CorruptTheCutie Guess what happens.]] But once you pick up on Ryuk's personality, you come to suspect he literally leaves the Death Note on the ground as Schmuck Bait because he finds it fun to watch what people do with it. And since whoever picks it up becomes able to see him, he gets to play around with them...[[spoiler: plus in the end, whatever happens, he always gets ''something'' out of the deal: at the very least, he gets to watch the book holder die.]]

** In Dressrosa, Luffy and Franky learn that Donquixote Doflamingo (That arc's BigBad) is hosting a tournament...with the [[spoiler: Mera Mera Fruit belonging to Luffy's dead brother Ace]] as the prize. Franky points out that it's ''obviously'' a trap, but allows Luffy to enter because "It's better to have no regrets." Luffy enters in disguise under an alias, which helps a bit, but

** In Season 2, the plot to capture Dark Illya begins with an obvious trap baited with an elegant meal and a conveniently bound Illya. When Dark Illya shows up, she remarks that she doesn't know how to react to such a pathetically obvious trap, but she's so confident that she doesn't mind playing along in any case.
