* In a episode of ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'', [[ButtMonkey Bulk and Skull]] are able to defeat a group of Cogs, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Mooks foot soldier robots]] of [[BigBad King Mondo]]. The Cogs usually analyze fighting style and predict movement but because Bulk and Skull are [[TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket not trained in combat]], their "style" is erratic, so the Cogs can not defeat them.

** This idea also exists in non-video games and sports as well. For example, one of the unwritten rules of Baseball is that if a pitcher is doing extraordinarily well, such as if they are in the process of accomplishing the rare feat of a no-hitter or perfect game, that their teammates are not to bring this fact to their atttention.

* In ''FanFic/ThisBites'', this was invoked, then averted. Cross doesn't tell Zoro that he's trying to cut through a diamond-hard seastone cage, because he thought if Zoro didn't know he couldn't do it, he might be able to. It doesn't work.

** Played straight in the Enies Lobby arc. During the battle on the Bridge of Hesitation, thanks to years of thieving and treasure-hunting, Nami notices a glint from a far-off battleship. She assumes it's a sniper, replaces herself with a mirage, and yells at her crew mates to get down. In reality, it was [[LightEmUp Admiral Kizaru]], who was planning to use his Sacred Yata Mirror technique to warp onto the battlefield and kill them all. Instead, he flies straight into Nami's mirage and is refracted away from Enies Lobby, painfully colliding with the Red Line and left immobile. In short, Nami, a member of the Weakling Trio, unknowingly defeated one of the Three Admirals.

* In ''Manga/AllAroundTypeMoon'', [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rin Tohsakah]], while learning to use a computer, makes a mistake and summons the player Saber from ''VideoGame/FateExtra''. Let's reiterate; Rin summoned a Servant from ''an alternate future'', an act of the Second True Magic, simply by being HopelessWithTech. And at the end of the chapter, she manages to summon the [[HereWeGoAgain game's other servants.]]

** The same thing happened when ComicBook/{{Taskmaster}} fought SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}. Taskmaster has the ability to analyze and duplicate any physical action, so he can instantly master any combat style just by observing it. Deadpool starts acting completely randomly and kicks his ass.

* Neil Peart, drummer for Music/{{Rush}}, plays three very fast triplets on timbales at the start of the song "Time Stand Still." He got the idea from a Music/{{Genesis}} song, and later worked with the engineer who helped the band record it. The engineer told Peart that the fill in the Genesis song had actually been recorded with the tape slowed down.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Due to some traumatic event in his past, Onni is someone extremely reluctant to leave his comfort zone, both in the real world and in the mage-space. His family members are aware of this, and understand when he refuses to join the expedition. Reynir initially met Onni via walking into his mage-space safe area, where, in the midst of mistaking him for a threat, he showed his hidden more combative side. This causes Reynir to view Onni as the go-to source of magical reinforcements and somehow hit the right middle ground between conering him into helping.

This has caused Reynir to assume it is no big deal to call upon him to help with any spiritual threats he's too weak to handle himself. Onni answers to his call nonetheless, and usually has to leave his safe area in the process.
