* The plan of TheChessmaster [[spoiler: Henry Haber]] in "The Millie-churian Candidate" episode of ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' is an extremely convoluted plan that's very dependent not only on playing on several people's character flaws, but that several of the involved people would fail at certain tasks - most prominently, that Louise would get caught doing something illicit and thus get disqualified from the race. Parts of the plan bordered on GambitRoulette - it even hinged on the fact that the only way Louise would learn [[spoiler: that Millie's "Besties" program would pair Louise with someone other than Millie]] would be by breaking into Mr. Frond's office.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BraveStarr'', BraveStarr lets himself be manipulated into a terrible bargain with Tex Hex-- because he knows Tex is such a compulsive backstabber that all he has to do is ''wait'' for Tex to break his word, and then BraveStarr won't be bound by the agreement, either. Sure enough, Tex can't keep his word even one full day.
* WesternAnimation/BugsBunny demonstrates his mastery of the BatmanGambit in many cartoons, but rarely comes up against a worthy opponent, and will inevitably use simple [[KarmicTrickster tricks]], like misdirection and "pronoun trouble", to manipulate his enemies.

* ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' has one in "I Only Have Surprise for You". Mac knowing that Bloo would throw him a surprise party and humiliate him, sets out to destroy the party before it can start. Only to find that Bloo had another party planned, so he goes to smash that... only to find that it wasn't meant for him but for a cute little imaginary friend named Artie. Feeling totally remorseful, and having the whole house hate him, he goes out of his way to make another party for the kid topped with him dressing up as a clown and humiliating himself. And when Mac asks Artie how good the party was he says "I only have one thing to say"... and then rips off his costume revealing himself as Madame Foster in disguise. In other words... Bloo indeed made two surprise parties, knowing that Mac would smash them both and become completely remorseful, and thus throw himself his own surprise party and therefore humiliating himself... AND EVERYONE IN THE HOUSE WAS IN ON IT.... except Eduardo.

* In the Nick cartoon ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'' the episode Eye Caramba has a member of the Flock of Fury (the main family's arch-nemesis') trick the titular character to put up the source of his power as a bet knowing he'd stink at darts without it. Then after using lasers to guide her dart she accidentally throws it backwards, and is visibly distraught about losing her glass eye. That was just a plan for him to take home her glass eye, knowing he would give it to his father to wear, so the Flock could spy on him through the eye's built-in camera and be able to both get away from crime scenes before he arrives but also destroy his confidence and make him eventually give up.

** In Episode 106, Mr. Cat buys a bunch of seemingly useless stuff at a GarageSale. It's revealed later in the episode that he planned it out so that a) he can re-sell it to gullible people for even higher prices than he paid for the items, and b) since his bedroom is full of stuff, he can ask to sleep in Kaeloo's bedroom with her.


* In the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' episode "[[Recap/DuckTales2017S2E22GlomTales GlomTales!]]", Louie pulls of a masterful one. Having been captured by Flintlock Glomgold and a gathering of their deadliest foes, Louie convinces them to pool all of their money together so that their combined total surpasses Scrooge's, then convinces Glomgold to make him his partner, drawing up a contract to make it legally binding. However, he's counting on Glomgold to 1) not use his [[EmbarrasingFirstName embarrassing]] [[EmbarrasingLastName real name]] Duke Baloney and 2) not read the fine print that states that if they didn't use their real name, they would forfeit their half of the earnings. Louie even makes sure to use ''his'' embarrassing real name to make it binding. Thus, when Glomgold wins the bet and gets control of Scrooge's money and company, Louie reveals what he's done, taking possession of Scrooge's holdings, Glomgold's holdings and the savings of the villains who allied with Glomgold.

* In ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' Napoleon Brie, the [[EvilVsEvil rival]] of [[BigBad Lawrence Limburger]], does it at least three times:
** In [[EstablishingCharacterMoment his first episode]] he sends his [[EliteMooks Doom Rangers]] to Chicago to attack Limburger's forces, knowing that the sting of losing would make Limburger accept his challenge to a fight to determine who would keep both Chicago and Detroit… a challenge Brie would win, thanks to superior firepower, training and abilities of his commander.
** "Back to Mars": he knew it was just a matter of time before the Biker Mice would capture Limburger and bring him to Mars for trial. [[spoiler: So he beamed false information to the Martian resistance making it appears as the mice were traitors helping Limburger. This way, both them and Limburger would have remained imprisoned on Mars ( if not executed ) leaving Brie with no opposition in the conquest of Chicago.]]
*** In the same episode Limburger uses one: [[spoiler: he pretends with Brie's [[TheDragon Number One]] to accept Brie's victory and to become his new right-hand man due to both of them being [[FishPeople Plutarkians]], knowing than losing his position is Number One' s BerserkButton. Sure enough, Number One shoots his own boss,]] allowing Limburger to take back his tower.
** Lastly in "Hit The Road, Jack", Brie shown to [[TaughtByExperience have learned from the last time]]: [[spoiler: he pretends to give Number One's job to Angela to make believable when Number One would go to Limburger to take revenge on Brie, while it was a lure to draw Limburger to Detroit and destroy him with his new weapon]]. In this case he was however OutGambitted by Limburger and [[spoiler:Angela]].

*** The ReverseMole, [[spoiler:Kallus]], who's been unmasked and is being held prisoner, deliberately taunts Governor Pryce, in the middle of a VillainousBreakdown, about how [[MagnificentBastard Thrawn]] will blame her for letting the rebels escape. She gets angry and orders him ThrownOutTheAirlock -- which leaves him guarded by two stormtroopers, who he easily overpowers and makes his exit in an escape pod, getting picked up by the ''Ghost'' as they're escaping. His [[SmugSmiler smirk]] as he's being led into the elevator shows this is exactly what he wanted.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episode "Failure Is Not a Factory-Installed Option", after a car salesman messes with Stan's head to make him buy a car he doesn't want, Stan goes insane and starts living on the streets, depriving his family of their sole source of income (his paycheck). This forces them to shop at the same discount grocery store as the car salesman. Seeing the devastation his aggressive negotiations have caused, the salesman is shamed into giving Stan a much better deal on a car. Stan then whips off his crazy homeless guy clothes and reveals this sequence of events was all part of his master plan to get the better of the salesman. The fact that this plan led to his family nearly starving and his daughter prostituting herself for grocery money [[{{Jerkass}} doesn't seem to concern him]].
