A complicated [[ThePlan plan]] that revolves entirely around people doing exactly what you'd ''expect'' them to do. This trope relies heavily on FlawExploitation manipulating, although it can work with virtues instead of "flaws" just as easily. Sometimes the flaw is that the villains are so predictable that they'll [[VillainBall take the first chance they have]] [[DickDastardlyStopsToCheat to do something mean and underhanded]]. Other times, the flaw is that the heroes are [[ChronicHeroSyndrome so heroic that they'll act for the greater good]] [[DudleyDoGoodStopsToHelp without even thinking about it]]. A particularly GenreSavvy person will recognize the fact that [[TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin heroes always win]] -- and design a plan [[NiceJobBreakingItHero based on the assumption that they will succeed]].

Contrast with the MacGuffinDeliveryService, and the failed attempt, SpringtimeForHitler. Also see IndyPloy for the lack of a plan. A gambit that relies on misdirection is a KansasCityShuffle. If things do go wrong, but the person keeps adjusting things so that Plan A works anyway, he's playing XanatosSpeedChess. TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat is a subtrope.
