* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'':
** This is awkwardly done by Harry in the book ''Small Favor'' when a huge snow storm has hit most of Chicago. Harry and a friend head to the train station to acquire something when they are beset upon by hobs, small imp-like monsters beholden to the Winter Queens. While they are handling these monsters and protecting people, one of the Gruffs, a Summer Fae assassin who has been trying to chase him, arrives in the form of a 10ft or taller goat-man. Summer Fae and Winter Fae have a deep dislike of each other on the best of times. So, Harry tricks the hobs into noticing the wounded Gruff and let nature take its course.
** In ''Changes'' this was discussed and Harry has to vehemently deny this was his intention. He explains to the native party he had no way of knowing when he was escaping Red Court vampires pursuing him in the Chicago field office of the FBI and he opened a door to the spirit world to escape, he would land in the private dining hall of [[spoiler:the Erlking, a powerful Fae who has wanted to kill Harry ever since he trapped the Erlking in a magic circle. The Red Court vampires try to claim this whole thing is a plot by Harry to get the Erlking to kill them in Harry's place. The concept of being used like that angers the Erlking, who decides to let the parties face trial by combat. The victor will win his protection as a guest, the other will be treated like an invader]].

* It's (sometimes) possible to pull this off in ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', which contains monsters equally hostile to all players. However, it requires good timing so they don't attack you, and if your enemy is strong enough, fighting them merely [[NiceJobBreakingItHero gets him more money, experience, and items]].
* In MMO's such as ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' it's possible to use this as a PK technique, by using a combination of long-range attacks and stealth to 'pull' a powerful group of monsters on top of enemy players.
