- The Wraith "Todd" lives this as a matter of course; manipulating enemies with style is like breathing to him.
- Major Sheppard also gets a moment like this every so often, including and especially at the end of the series, when he's trying to talk "Todd" into helping them fight another Wraith. "Todd" asks Sheppard why he should do it when it would leave "Todd" the prisoner of Atlantis and without any leverage.
Todd: Am I supposed to be enticed by this offer?
Sheppard: No. I'll probably kill you anyway. But don't forget, this Wraith betrayed you and got away with it. For no other reason, you might want to do it out of pure spite.
Todd: Youuuu know how to talk to me, John Sheppard! (evil laughter)
