* In the doujin FightingGame ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'':
** Mayu Shiina has this as her fighting style, as she uses her animal-like moves to fight, and incorporates a lot of acrobatics in her moves and jump and seemingly random directions, to finally dive kick her opponent, or grab her and pound her into the ground.
** Nayuki Minase counts to a lesser extent, as she fights mostly in a sleepy state, and can increase her offense and mobility as she consumes strawberry jam.

** Not only that, but in the preliminaries Goku completely stumps an old-fashioned kung-fu master because of his wide open stance and lack of traditional technique. Fortunately what Goku lacks in formal skill he makes up for with raw talent.

* Achilles from the ''Literature/EndersGame''. While not as intelligent as the other battle school students, he is able to outsmart them all by keeping them guessing. This is particularly frustrating to Bean, who [[spoiler: eventually kills him by being unpredictable himself; in ''Shadow of the Giant'', Achilles trusts that Bean will act to preserve his unborn embryos, but Bean elects to shoot him and let them die, rationalizing that it is for the greater good and Achilles likely was either bluffing or intended to kill them regardless.]]

* Arc dodgers in ''TabletopGame/XWingMiniatures'' rely on this. The best arc-dodgers - Soontir Fel's TIE Interceptor and Fenn Rau's Concord Dawn Protectorate Starfighter - have both boost and barrel roll actions, making them really good at repositioning on the fly, and a high Pilot Skill, allowing them to see where the enemy goes before deciding how to reposition. Han Solo's "Heroes of the Resistance" version will have a similar effect; his ability to deploy ''anywhere'' outside of weapons range of enemy ships - at Pilot Skill 9, the highest unmodified PS in the game - means that wherever your opponent wants him to start, he won't; you'll almost always have at minimum half the table to deploy in.

* In an issue of ''ComicBook/GreenLantern'' Sinestro cites this as the key reason he can never beat Hal Jordan.
-->'''Sinestro''': You're too blasted unpredictable. Set a plotter or a schemer in my path, I'll crush their bones to dust. You've escaped that fate not because of something as silly as willpower. Nor because of your prosaic notions of justice and morality. You've survived because your actions never make sense. Yet despite yourself---and this is the truly infuriating part---your instincts always see you through.

** It's also precised that Rincewind's favourite method of fighting bare-handed is to strike badly, but as many times as possible, and with maximum strength (which doesn't mean very much in his case) in order not to let the opponent the opportunity to realize how a terrible fighter he is. Not to mention faking the use of his nonexistent magic powers in a voluntarily ridiculous and over-the-top way, just to give him the time to score a Groin Attack or any other non-magic trick.

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'s'' John Crichton, whose best moments usually come when a plan fails horribly and he resorts to taking advantage of the confusion and [[IndyPloy winging it]]. It helps that he's pretty much slipped aside the bonds of sanity to be able to accept his circumstances by halfway through the first season.
