** In competitive battling, the Pokémon capable of this typically have reasonable offenses in either spectrum and/or defenses that they have multiple possible competitive movesets which, in extreme cases, require different counters. Due to the guesswork involved, you might inevitably lose at least one Pokémon to them due to learning the moveset one turn too late.
*** Mega Charizard takes this to a different level, having two different Mega Evolutions each with different abilities, weaknesses, and stat spreads. Guessing wrongly commonly leads to Mega Charizard X setting up a Swords Dance or Dragon Dance to sweep with, or Mega Charizard Y obliterating you with a sun-empowered STAB Fire Blast.

** Don't be fooled by the grappler get-up and moveset, because R.Mika in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' possesses some of the craziest mix-up potential in the game. That's saying something considering that ''two'' of the game's characters[[note]] Nash and Bison, the latter has this ''as a super mode''[[/note]] can freaking teleport. How is this possible you ask? Simple, her AssistCharacter[[note]] Yamato Nadeshiko, Mika's tag team partner[[/note]], when summoned, will come crashing on you with no input as to ''where'' the attack will come from. Guess wrong, and kiss 20-50% of your health goodbye. Guess wrong, and the insane blockstun will guarantee that Mika gets to perform either a mix-up, or a command grab, or just about ''anything''.

** The VK 30.01 (H) is notorious for having an extremely diverse selection of guns, most of which look quite similar at the first or second glance from 300 meters off. You never know what you'll find when you end up facing this particular tank--will it stay at long range punching holes in your armor with its monstrous Waffe 0725 gun? Will it suddenly lurch around the corner and vaporize half your hit points with a 10.5 cm howitzer? Or have you encountered a crazy person who equipped the fast-firing 5cm cannon and plans to keep you constantly immobilized while his artillery friends finish you off? The only way to know is to watch it fire and hope you can recognize gun sounds and shell behaviors.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish is a proponent of this style, and [[spoiler: after he arranges the killing of Joffrey and takes Sansa on his ship]] tells her that when executing a plan, it is important to sometimes appear to be working against one's aims, just to keep the enemy guessing.

Funnily enough, this crops up much, much earlier. Arya Stark once accidentally overheard Varys complaining to Illyrio Mopatis that he has ''no'' idea what Littlefinger is really up to.

* Used in ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' as an argument [[spoiler:for why Deadpool wins over Deathstroke. While Deathstroke is TheStrategist and a masterful one at that, all the tactical acumen in the world can't do a thing to predict absolute insanity.]]

* ''Codex: Card Time Strategy'' (another game by Dave Sirlin) has [[http://www.sirlin.net/posts/codex-anarchy-spec the entire Anarchy spec]] themed around chaos and unpredictability. One of its iconic spells throws [[ThreateningShark two sharks]] out of nowhere at the opponent. The flavour text explicitly invokes this trope:
-->''"When you do something they don't expect, they have to actually think about how to respond. Most people aren't equipped to actually think if their precious plan goes wrong." - [[CrazyAwesome Captain Zane]]''
** Zane likes this trope. Another of his pieces of flavour text is pithier:
-->''"[[IHaveNoIdeaWhatImDoing Do I look like someone with a plan? I just DO things.]]" - Captain Zane''
