* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'': The Batmobile has an unlabeled large bright shiny red button in easy reach of the driver's side. When pressed, it floods the car with sleeping gas, the driver's side first and foremost. Why? [[CrazyPrepared In case the Joker ever steals it]]. Because SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker would never be able to resist pushing an unlabeled large bright shiny red button just to see what happens.

* An issue of ''Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan'' features Jean Grey accidentally setting up her own Schmuck Bait, and getting both Peter and herself caught in it when she congratulates him on not [[ForgotAboutTheMindReader mentally picturing her naked]]. If you didn't get it, she just said the word sequence "Picture me naked" to a teenage boy. [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead And she's one of the most powerful psychics in the universe.]] It then runs into an OverlyLongGag as Peter tries to stop thinking about Jean Gray naked.

* Employed in a ''ComicBook/FelixTheCat'' comic where he figures out that the person who just stole a set of jewelry is a compulsive reader. [[spoiler:So he has the police set up upside-down signs around the city and waits for someone to do a handstand to read the sign and have the jewelry fall out of their pockets]].

* In ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'', Kenton's looking for the last sphere to finish his FetchQuest exam when he spots it in the centre of a perfectly round and flat plaza of quicksand - in the middle of of mountains. He goes for it, wondering only for a moment what kind of winds would create such place... and ''of course'' it turns out to be not a geological feature but a [[SandWorm nest]].

* One Superboy comic contains what could be the ultimate in Schmuck Bait. A cage with a big sign that says "Luthor Trap to Catch Superboy" and one over the door that says "Enter here, please." He does. The bars are Kryptonite. It's [[ItMakesSenseInContext too bad]] it was AllJustADream. Otherwise that would definitely be SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor's CrowningMomentOfAwesome. It's such an obvious trap that ''[[LemonyNarrator even the narrator gives up on Superboy.]]''
