* 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.]]''
-->'''Luthor:''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny I captured Superboy through his sheer dumbness!]]
* 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.
* In ''Comicbook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'', the bright yellow logo on Batman's chest is revealed to be Schmuck Bait, as he deliberately included this target in his costume to bait Mooks into shooting at his well-armored chest, not his head.
* ComicBook/ThePunisher has said the same thing. He wears the skull on his chest (over his body armor) so they don't shoot the one in his head.
* ''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.
** It gets used twice in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold.''
* ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'': A long, empty corridor that leads to the McGuffin and gives your War Trained Princess the creeps? Seems fine.
* {{Lampshaded}} by Rainbow Dash in ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW'', assured that the Queen's plan is just a trap for the Mane Six.
* 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]].
