Harry almost laughed at the statement. ''If there's ever a way to cause a problem, that's it. It's like saying "Hey, watch this!" or "WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong?" I'm so screwed, it's not even funny.''

* In the ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fanfic "[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12737056/1/Beware-Of-What-You-Can-t-See Beware of What You Can't See]]," Dib finds a spell that gives him invisibility, [[InvisibleStreaker but doesn't affect his clothes]]. He instantly realizes that this is a bad idea, though [[GenreBlind Gaz winds up using it with expected results]].

** Part of the explanation is, she's a fan of TurnOfTheMillennium Earth science fiction (although not ''Franchise/StarTrek'' because [[CelebrityParadox that would be silly]]).

** Part of the explanation is, she's a fan of TurnOfTheMillennium Earth science fiction (although not ''Franchise/StarTrek'' because [[CelebrityParadox that would be silly]]). In ''Literature/TheWarOfTheMasters'', Eleya is explicitly stated to borrow ideas from hard science fiction especially, such as powering down her ship and using gravity assists to aid in surprise attacks in lieu of a cloaking device.

-->"I trust Severus Snape, Minerva. It just appears that he has a bit of a blind spot with young Potter. Severus needs to be here teaching." [Dumbledore] saw his deputy eye him with disdain in her eye. "Do not worry yourself, old friend. I am keeping an eye on him. With me in this school, nothing bad will happen to Harry Potter."\\

** In the Frax & Velvet Interlude, the latter constantly chides the former for saying "WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong", since she knows that uttering those words [[TemptingFate is a tantamount to have]] ''[[TemptingFate everything]]'' [[TemptingFate go wrong]]. Hilariously, at the end ''[[IronicEcho she]]'' [[IronicEcho ends up saying it and almost pays for it]].
* In Chapter 114 of ''Fanfic/DreamingOfSunshine'', Shikako makes sure her team is ready to spring into action, not because of her future knowledge (it's a filler) but because "if something's going to happen, this is the last chance".

-->"But see, in every movie that's science-fiction or fantasy or the like, [[InfantImmortality the kid always makes it]]. This time [[SubvertedTrope he didn't]], and thus, this queen has broken the unwritten rule for such movies. Even an [[IKnowKarate Asian martial artist cliché]] or the [[AmericaSavesTheDay American commando cliché]] cannot defeat someone who is breaking the unwritten rules. But as I said, I didn't want to say this out loud, or [[ClosetGeek I'd look weird]]."

* Both Snape and Hermione show various levels of savviness in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11634921/3/Itachi-Is-That-A-Baby Itachi, Is That A Baby?]]''. Hermione buys Harry's Christmas present by finding a magical shop run by an old Asian man and buying any books he has in Asian languages, reasoning that those sorts of things always turn out to be important. Snape meanwhile, refuses to ask about Harry's plans because he doesn't want to be considered a witness and/or accomplice.
* ''FanFic/RobbReturns'':
** As soon as he has Baelish captured, Jon Arryn does everything to make sure he will not spread around news about "The Great Matter" (aka the fact that Joffrey, Myrcella and Tommen are all Jaime's children): put him in an isolated cell, make his trial a private affair [[spoiler:and make his trial by combat a completely private affair in which Baelish has no chance of surviving]].
** When he learns that there's an Iron Bank representative "just passing by" King's Landing, Baelish [[spoiler:(who has been arrested for stealing money from the Crown, some of which belonged to the Iron Bank)]] knows that the guy is either a Faceless Man or knows there's one close.
** Illyrio Mopatis knew that Viserys was not a mentally balanced person, so [[spoiler:he gave him a completely fake "dragon egg" made of stone]] to distract him. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:this has the consequence of Viserys becoming even [[AxCrazy more deranged]], culminating in him trying to kill Daenerys and both him and Mopatis dying in a fire as they attempt to kill each other.]]
* ''FanFic/ThisBites'':
** Cross in Chapter 20. Taking up a plan to subdue the rebel army before they can reach the city? Knowing their success rate, plans on something going wrong. Knocking down Mr. 2 with near-fatal force? Knowing how strong he is, encourages getting away from him before he gets his second wind.
** The rest of the Straw Hats are also getting wise to a certain combination of factors: Cross has knowledge of the future, he goes LaughingMad when his adrenaline spikes, and it always starts with a "Pff." So when the crew hears that initial snort, they know that trouble isn't very far away.
*** Robin has even begun to preempt this by one step: the moment she sees the CheshireCatGrin that precludes a [[TheGadfly Gadfly]] like Cross doing or saying something incredibly stupid, she quickly uses her powers to [[HandGagging Hand Gag]] him.
** When Boss is sneaking around outside the Puffing Tom, one of the guards asks if the other heard a seal. The second remarks on the insanity of a seal being nearby during Aqua Laguna, only to shut up when the first points out they're on the Grand Line.
** In Chapter 41, Zoro knew that despite Kaku's words, he was going to use Iron Body in their final clash. Skilled or not, Kaku isn't truly a swordsman, but an assassin and an assassin is more concerned with getting the job done than honor.
