** Similarly, [[AllThereInTheManual the instruction papers]] for ''Anime/GundamBuildDivers''[='s=] Momokapool Gunpla reveal that Momoka's desire to turn a [[Anime/TurnAGundam Kapool]] into a penguin-themed Gunpla lead to the suit being a lot more stronger and durable. She didn't care much for a "strong" Gunpla, she just wanted a cute Gunpla.

* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'''s Adventure Mode, the greatest challenge an adventurer can do is to take on a Vault, [[spoiler: a structure guarded by Angels and holding a slab inscribed with the [[IKnowYourTrueName true name]] of a demon]]. This is ridiculously difficult, and the conventional wisdom is that you need to be a Legendary adventurer armed with adamantine to even have a chance. One story has a newbie player storm a vault and get away with its slab, while wearing goose leather and being so green they didn't know what other posters were talking about when they mentioned "candy" armor and the "clown" (by the way, said adventurer survived, turned into a wererhino, got some powerful gear out of it, and the slab turned out to be useless as [[spoiler: the demon in question had been killed by a roc]]).

* Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto says that this trope is exploited when Creator/{{Nintendo}} hires people. He says that applicants being Nintendo fans already can actually hurt their chances of being hired, the justification being that people who don't have any preconceptions about what Nintendo games are or should be like will have an easier time bringing new and innovative ideas to the table. Miyamoto brought this up in an interview about a year after the release of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', a game whose radical reimaginings of ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' conventions are credited in large part to bringing in a lot of fresh blood who had no compunctions about questioning why things were done in a StrictlyFormula way before.

Incidentally, Eiji Aonuma, the current manager of the ''Zelda'' series, had never played a video game before when he was first hired by Nintendo, which probably inspired them to take that approach later on.

** In "Enel's Space Operation", Enel is on the moon (Itself a feat, as his "ship" flew by propellers which should not be capable of reaching outer space) blasting stuff with his lightning. He comes across an ancient city, strikes this, and ends up jump-starting the ancient technology by being TriggerHappy.

** A rather extreme example regarding [[spoiler:how Luffy became the "Fifth Emperor" of the Sea. Their entry into Big Mom's territory was initially supposed to be a discreet rescue mission for Sanji; circumstances caused the situation to escalate, which eventually led to an assassination attempt on Big Mom because Sanji refused to abandon his biological family to their well-deserved fates. The ensuing chaos that resulted from the Big Mom Pirates chasing them down was then sensationalized by "Big News" Morgans, who took a clusterfuck of a secret rescue operation as a deliberate assassination attempt (which was Capone Bege's idea) and full-on raid on Big Mom's territory (which was actually collateral damage of several fights and Big Mom herself going on a rampage) and declared Luffy to be the "Fifth Emperor" of the Sea. Essentially, the Straw Hats caused their reputations to skyrocket, to the point of being considered one of the five most powerful pirate crews in the world, ''by complete accident'', without ever stopping to realize the magnitude of the events that had just transpired because they were in crisis mode or about to die the entire time]].
* In ''Anime/DogDays'', everyone is under the impression that the hero summoning spell that brought Cinque to Flognard is "one way"; that is, when Cinque returns to Earth, he'll lose all memories of his adventures and will never be able to come back. After he's gone home, Ricotta does some research and discovers a sort of loophole in the spell that will allow Cinque to regain his memories and to return some day -- and he achieved every one of them in the process of saying his goodbyes to his new friends. Granted, the conditions aren't amazingly stringent[[note]]The Hero has to give gifts to three different people (preferably from his homeland, but not required) as well as giving a written promise to return to the summoner[[/note]], but he still managed to get them exactly right without realising.

* The Team Rocket trio of the ''{{Pokemon/Anime}}'' inevitably accomplish this. By the end of their Sinnoh run, they have become such washouts within the organisation that Giovanni has completely forgotten who they are, meaning he starts believing their exaggerated claims of success and promoting them to bigger roles. The one improvement in position they've made in their employment as a whole is by ''failing for long enough''.

* This is the topic of the Collin Raye song "What They Don't Know", where the narrator sees boys fishing in a tiny puddle and decides not to tell them they're not going to catch anything.
