Heroes that are particularly prone to this include Pudge[[note]]whose hook snags the first unit it touches - friend or foe - and pulls them back to Pudge... that is, if he [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy doesn't just miss outright]][[/note]], Naga Siren[[note]]whose ultimate, Song of the Siren, puts nearby enemies to sleep but also makes them invulnerable, which can easily screw up allies' spell combos[[/note]], and (for some reason) Nature's Prophet.

* Annoying trainers in ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' (and the remakes) will call you every once in a while...and some call to say that they failed to catch a ''Pidgey''. Yes, a ''[[ComMons Pidgey]]''. You have about a 33% chance of catching Pidgey that's at full strength with no status conditions and a plain old Poké Ball, yet they were ''trying'' and couldn't catch it!
