** Many manga printed for Western audiences feature a message on the last page (the left-most in this case, where a Western reader would typically start) that essentially tells the reader, "Hey, this is the last page! Go to the other end of the book to begin the story!"

** Hewlett-Packard calculators not only have a completely different layout and OS interface (where changing things in the mode screen requires one to hit F2 to choose what option to adjust and Enter just exits, among other things), but are often centered around Reverse Polish (postfix) notation, NOT algebraic (infix) notation. (Fortunately, both are supported-just go into the mode menu and switch it there.) Good luck transitioning between them and most other calculators (though you may not even want to if you're used to RPN).
* Reverse Polish notation calculators.

* This is why RingoStarr plays such uniquely odd drum fills. He learned to play on a set laid out for a right handed drummer. Being a leftie, he couldn't really get the patterns right. By the time he tried switching to a leftie setup, his hands couldn't unlearn what they had learned. Whatever you might say about the technical correctness of his playing, [[AchievementsInIgnorance it's hard to argue with success on that level]].

* Many characters, especially the lawyers, in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' will find themselves shouting '''"[[CatchPhrase OBJECTION!]]"''' when someone is telling a [[BlatantLies blatant lie]], they sniff out a contradiction or paradox, [[ThatWasObjectionable or because they don't like what's going on]], even if they're nowhere near a courtroom.

** Waving your hand uselessly over the console, trying to downshift into first gear, every time you come to a stop in an auto trans car after driving a manual for a long time.

** Waving your hand uselessly over the console, trying to downshift into first gear, every time you come to a stop in an auto trans car after driving a manual for a long time. This can end terribly if you actually ''do'' shift it into park, then try to drive when the light turns green. An automatic transmission does not appreciate someone trying to drive in park, and if you're especially unlucky, doing so will ruin it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' Ezra has his lightsaber taken away by Kanan to teach him not to rely on it. Sure enough, when he gets into some trouble Ezra instinctively reaches for the weapon.

* On pretty much every program, Ctrl-Z is the hotkey for "Undo". However, for "Redo", it's a toss-up whether the hotkey is Ctrl-Y or Shift-Ctrl-Z.

* If you're a shortkey fan, switching from Windows in English to Spanish or other languages or viceversa will severely cripple you the first few days or weeks, as most of them change according to the language. For instance, while CTRL+F is the command to '''f'''ind in the English version, it changes to CTRL+B ('''B'''uscar) in Spanish and CTRL+L ('''L'''ocalizar) in Portuguese. CTRL+A is "Select All" in English, while in Spanish it's the "Open File" command, as "Select All" is CTRL+E. It becomes increasingly unnerving if you use, for instance, Windows in English and Office in Spanish, as you have to switch back and forth between shortkey commands as you work. Also, try using MS Office in a localized version, then using [=OpenOffice=] or [=LibreOffice=] (which do not localize shortcuts).

* In ''Comicbook/MarvelAdventures Spider-Man'' #34, Peter Parker is [[AccidentalAthlete accidentally recruited]] as a shortshop for his high school baseball team after he's seen using his super-powers to deftly catch and return a wayward ball. Team pitcher Flash Thomson is enraged because [[DrugsAreBad he suspects Parker's skills are due to illegal drugs]], while the Green Goblin wants to eliminate Parker so his son's rival team can win instead. But, peter's skills are so accidental he can't mess up his game even when ''tries'' to. Peter deduces that his battles with super-villains have honed his reflexes so much that he can't help but react to the ball.
