Asterix is master of these in The Twelve Tasks of Asterix. Notable examples are during the fight with Cylindric the German, and "the place that sends you mad" sequence.
Aladdin pulls off a successful gambit against the Genie, showing that he was clever enough to not get overwhelmed by the Genie's antics. By challenging Genie's "phenomenal cosmic power," Aladdin was able to escape the Cave of Wonders without using up one of his precious few wishes. Genie proceeds to close the loophole for future tricks of this sort (and even gets a couple of puns in at the same time).
Genie: Well, I feel sheepish. OK, you baaad boy, but no more freebies!
Aladdin pulls this off again in the finale, where he tricks the power-mad Jafar into using his final wish to become "an all-powerful genie." Jafar not only gets his "phenomenal cosmic power," but also the "itty-bitty living space" that goes with it: he is imprisoned in his very own lamp.
In The Lion King, Scar pulls a fairly sadistic one on Mufasa when he puts Simba in danger. It ends up getting Mufasa killed.
Nocturna's Moka spends the whole movie working on one. Aside from his insatiable coffee habit, literally every action he takes, down to the last breath, is calculated to put Tim in a situation where his only option is to overcome his fear of the dark, which will save the night from certain doom.
In the Animated film, Dantes Inferno. Lucifer uses Dante's wife as bait, in order to trick him into freeing him from his spiritual prison in hell.
In Cats Dont Dance, Danny uses Darla Dimple's ego and Fantastic Racism to make him and his friends look good, using everything she tossed at them to improve their dance number.
Megamind broke out of prison by having Minion send him watch, addressed from Megamind's Arch-Nemesis Metroman, knowing the prison warden wouldn't let him keep it. When the warden put it on, the hologram projector in the watch activated, making the warden look like Megamind. The prison guards threw the warden in Megamind's cell, and he used the confusion to grab the watch and escape.
