* Directly invoked in one of Aquarius199's Doom WAD reviews. A particularly bad WAD had a wall texture right next to a visible teleport pad that read "Terry Trap" (a type of troll tactic used by WAD creators to trap the player in and throw them around an inescapable room while freezing their controls, playing loud, obnoxious sounds, and showing offensive text and images). Sure enough, when Aquarius stepped on the teleporter, he was sent to such a trap, with a line of text giving the web address for the main page of this trope on this wiki.

* ''ASDFMovie'' gives us the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Pointless Button]]. It does absolutely nothing when pressed.

* The Fart Button was a site with a big red button with the caption: "Press it. You know you want to." [[spoiler: It was actually a subversion; the button just makes a fart noise when pressed.]]

** Subverted in [[http://www.actsofgord.com/Wrath/chapter02.php this story]], where The Gord makes a 100% non-functional and incomplete Sony PlayStation and builds a shrine to it with a sign reading "Please don't steal me. You are being watched. -- Management." In the two hour experiment, while a lot of people stopped to look at the shrine to see if it was real or not, the closest anyone came to actually stealing it was checking that no-one was looking, as the store lights were out, picking it up, and then putting it back.

* In the ''{{Zero Punctuation}}'' review for [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/6276-DayZ DayZ]], Yahtzee mentions that on one of his 38 attempts (by the end of the video, anyway), he finds a pistol, rifle, and a ton of spare ammo at the top of a stairwell in an abandoned building. While questioning where the guns came from, as well as questioning the broken window and adjacent dead player (portrayed as a corpse with a bullet wound in their forehead) he is [[EpicFail shot dead by a sniper]] ([[BoomHeadshot in the same spot as the aforementioned corpse]]).

Added DiffLines:

* There is [[http://freemarriage.com/fun/inbox_bush.php an image]] purporting to be George W Bush's Hotmail inbox. Of note for this trope is "I dare you to open the attachment " from Bin Laden (size 260M).

Added DiffLines:

* In the Yellow trailer for ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', [[ActionGirl Yang]] strolls into a BadGuyBar and uses a GroinAttack on Junior, the mob leader who runs the place, to get some information off him. When his goons descend on them, [[UnusualEuphemism she lets his Juniors go]] and then playfully flirts with him, saying she wants to kiss and make up. He goes along with it and leans in, ''with his eyes closed''. Unsurprisingly, [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom she just socks him]].

* ''{{Gearworld}}'', a Livejournal blog of a fictional travelogue, contains two instances of Schmuck Bait. Each instance had been discovered by a previous group of exploring monks, and they had left carved plaques behind to commemorate and warn about the experience.
