* [[TheChessmaster Reiji Akaba]] of Anime/YuGiOhArcV says this line after witnessing Tsukikage's defeat against Shinji in Synchro Dimension. The dimension's chairman council are understandably surprised because Reiji came from Standard Dimension to ask for cooperation with Synchro Dimension as warriors to end an interdimensional war and yet his comrades keep losing to residents from their dimension in an ongoing torunament there. It is later revealed in following episodes that Tsukikage is impiled to lose on purpose and his defeat is essential; Those who lose the tournament are sent to underground facility as slaves while those who advance to the next round are confined inside individual rooms with constant surveillance. With Tsukikage's defeat, he's free from the tournament's constant watch and able to move freely. Escaping from the facility is not a problem since Tsukikage is a ninja. This way, he can give reports to Reiji regarding his other comrades' condition in the facility and the season's BigBad and contribute in freeing others when an invasion occurs.

* Subverted in the FinalBattle of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' Part 2, ''Battle Tendency''. Just when it looks like TheBadGuyWins, [[TheHero Joseph Joestar]] manages to turn everything around: he uses the [[PlotDevice Red Stone of Aja]] to intercept and amplify [[BigBad Kars]]' deathblow, causing the volcano they're on to erupt and launching them skyward on a giant slab of rock. Kars attempts to escape, only to get hit by [[AnArmAndALeg Joseph's severed left arm]] (also launched by the blast after Kars cut it off), which distracts him long enough for rocks launched from the landmass at high speeds to strike him and propel him into space. Before he leaves the atmosphere, Kars angrily demands to know if Joseph planned all of this out; Joseph says "Of course, you dolt!" but thinks to himself "Actually I didn't, but thinking that I did will drive him crazy!"

* Lelouch of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is fond of saying "the preliminary conditions have been met", as well as many variations of that phrase. Unfortunately for him, that line is roughly his version of "What could possibly go wrong" in that the [[SpannerInTheWorks Spanner hits the Works]] about 2 nanoseconds later. ie, Things are going just as planne-Oh no, IT'S THE LANCELOT! *boom*
** His brother Schnizel also uses this trope constantly. The first time we hear is when his plans for Euphemia's Special Administrative Zone are going smoothly. [[GoneHorriblyWrong Then "it" happened]]. Schnizel had this stupid speechless look on his face. Then in season 2 he just ''smiled creepily'' when [[spoiler:Suzaku's mind-control kicked in and nuked Tokyo alongside 30 million Britannian/Foreign citizens]]; this outright shows that he's ruthless [[spoiler:and only becomes disturbed when wise people go completely insane, not when worlds are slaughtered]].

* The {{TabletopGame/Warhammer}} tie-in novel ''The Master of Death'' is a complete send-up of this trope. The VillainProtagonist W'soran spends the entire book manipulating the disparate human and undead residents of the region in a centuries-long plot to get him in a room to duel his more powerful rival and take the throne of Mourkain. Every seeming reversal is revealed to have been accounted for in his labyrinthine master plan. After everything falls into place perfectly he fights his way through the unwinnable battle for the capital to seize the crown for himself and win in one final stroke... and then he realizes he never actually thought of a way to do that. Despite what he had constantly assured his followers, himself,and the reader he never ''really'' had a plan.

* ''The Hope of the Senju Clan'' has Sarutobi "The Professor/God of Shinobi" Hiruzen (3rd Hokage) explain at length to Kakashi, Kushina, Yamato, Kurenai and Asuma how Senju Naruto (Tsunade's his mom) is to be trained and by who as well as other incidental things showing that he's got his bases covered with Naruto's training and safety. The next scene has a council meeting where Danzo tries to make a ploy to get Naruto trained under him. The reader can then see and predict how different parts of Sarutobi's plan come in to block Danzo. No matter what tactic Danzo uses. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome It's actually pretty cool.]]

* This is part of the Scorpion Clan's [[PlanetOfHats Hat]] in ''LegendOfTheFiveRings''. They would have people believe that ''everything'' they do is part of a XanatosGambit, including the clear failures where the "just as planned" benefits cannot possibly be worth the costs.

** That being said, pretty much every battle in Bleach will have multiple of these moments. Pretty much the entire of the Aizen and Thousand Year Blood War arc involve characters telling each other that they had planned for their opponent to plan for their plan that had planned for their plan that had been planned ahead of time to counter their opponents plan.... Before their opponent says "But I planned for you to do that..." [[spoiler: At one point, Yhwach blatently states that he planned for his entire army to be defeated and all of his men destroyed, as well as almost getting wiped out of existance, only surviving because of some ass-pull ability.]] To make a long story short, Bleach villains don't understand the idea of "Just because it's going to plan, doesn't mean it's a good plan."
