Wait until the next Quidditch match, fly as close to a bludger as possible, then [[DeadlyDodging use it to take out the entire opposing team.]]]] Apparently this is actually an accepted, if insane, Quidditch strategy, referred to as the 'Dangerous Dai Decoy'.

** In the sequel, ''Ghosts of the Past'', Thor's entire plan for defusing the situation after Harry [[spoiler: briefly goes Dark Phoenix and]] is deemed a threat (for fairly logical reasons) by the Council Elite of Skyfathers/making them back off. Get Doctor Strange, who by this point seems to have genuinely gone round the bend, give him the Tesseract, and let him run wild.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'': Par for the course for Ash. Even if he has everything against him, he won't rest until he finds a way out. Some of his most impressive victories include:
** In the Celadon Gym, Erika's Leafeon summons a long-lasting Rain Dance, that hampers Ash's Pokémon with type advantages against Erika's Grass-types. When he realizes he won't be able to win if he doesn't get rid of the rain, he does... with ''his own'' Rain Dance. This sounds absurd at first, but it works, because the resulting downpour gets rid of the moisture in the air, meaning the rainy conditions can't be sustained any longer.
** In the semifinals of the [[TournamentArc Fuchsia Tag Tournament]], Ash and Pikachu's opponent is a Mudsdale that has just about everything on its favor: [[ElementalRockPaperScissors has a type advantage as a Ground-type]] [[NoSell thus rendering his Electric attacks useless]], [[StoneWall has an ability that boosts its defense every time it takes damage]] [[MightyGlacier and on top of that hits hard.]]. What does Ash do? [[spoiler: Have Pikachu store as much electricity as he can in his tail, and then attack ''the battlefield'', sending out a barrage of rocks over Mudsdale, damaging it enough to end the battle with one last Iron Tail.]]
** Later in the finals, faced against Paul's Torterra, [[spoiler: Ash tells Red that in order to win, Red needs to evolve his Charmeleon. Red and everyone else thinks he's crazy, but Ash insists that he can see his Charmeleon has the power to evolve, and just needs the motivation to do so. Red then awkwardly gives Charmeleon a pep speech, and to everyone's shock, he does evolve, becoming strong enough to overpower Torterra.]]

* ''Fanfic/TheDeathGodAlliance'' had the problem of Nico di Angelo going missing after an attack by Magicians. Hades becomes quite angry and prepares to destroy the magicians of the House of Life, which would end badly. However Nico can't simply pop in and say he's fine because he got part of Anubis's soul stuck in him and Hades would react badly to that. His solution: Make it seem like he had simply been playing Mythomagic for a week with Anubis and hadn't noticed anything amiss. This worked, despite even Percy Jackson thinking the plan was complete ludicrous.

* In ''Literature/RomeoAndOrJuliet'', Juliet's nurse has the option of jamming really firm sticks into the mouths of several ferocious dogs and a lion. Both the narrator and gatekeeper are shocked that she managed to even get the sticks in the animals' mouths, let alone avoid getting killed by them.

* This seemed to be Dino's preferred method in the U.S. Season 8 of ''Series/MasterChef''. His cooking was often wildly inventive and often went in directions that had never been done before and theoretically just should not have worked. When he failed, it could be spectacular, but his success was enough [[spoiler:to carry him to the finale and win in the end.]]
