What about when it is a powerful, all-knowing robot type instead of a god? Usually with the hero defeating it with its own logic.

Would that count as this trope or be its own sub-trope? I'm thinking of Fallout 3, but I'm sure it has been used before, you know "Error! Error! Does not compute! Initiating self-destruct sequence!"

Would it be a subversion if the supernatural entity in question isn't necessarily "scammed," but rather just bribed?

Removed a particularly shoehorned example - Lyra tricking Iofur in His Dark Materials. Iofur is, surely, a badass armored bear, but he is not a supernatural entity. Mrs. Coulter tricking Metatron counts though.

1d4chan. Also, that isn't Tzeentch, that's just a Lord of Change, one of his generic greater daemons.
