* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: [[invoked]] Played with in "A Survey of the Works of Herbert Quain", which reviews several books from the titular (fictional) author; one of them is a collection of stories in all of which Quain has ''deliberately'' wasted a good plot turning it into a wrong direction, with the intention of making the readers believe they have discovered the better possible plot themselves.

** And a story sketched in "The Zahir," whose protagonist is an ascetic living in isolation in a wasteland called ''gnittaheidr'', guarding a huge treasure to protect lesser men from the temptation it causes (including his own father, whom he killed). [[spoiler: in the end, it turns out the protagonist is Fafnir, who was turned into a giant serpent by [[ArtifactOfDoom the Ring of the Nibelungen]] and slain by Siegfried.]]
** ''The shape of the sword'': A man with a scar tells Borges how he got it: When he was a young irish rebel, a comrade called Moon, whom he saved from death, betrayed him to the Englishmen and he gave Moon a MarkOfShame. When Borges asks him to finish the story, [[spoiler: the man reveals himself as the traitor Moon. His GuiltComplex is so big he only can tell the story of his treason invoking a PerspectiveFlip]].
