A little wordy, too much? Well I'm open to suggestions.

This is when heros get wind of a scheme by the villains of plans to attack a secret fortress of good. So secret in fact, that the villains shouldn't have any way of even knowing where it is. Alarmed, the heroes head toward the base to sound off a warning- only to find out that the villain was just bluffing in the hopes they would do exactly that. Nice Job Breaking It, Hero.

Examples:
  • In El-Hazard, this is how Katsuhiko is able to find out the location of the sealed superweapon, which the Bugrom would not know about but the priestesses would.
  • The Disney version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame has Quasimodo and Phoebus leading Frollo's forces to the Land of Miracles via this method.
