* [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI The assassination of Franz Ferdinand]]. To wit, all the assassins were supposed to throw grenades, fire pistols, then drink cyanide and drown themselves in the river. Instead, all but one of them froze up, and the one who acted missed with both bullets and grenades and wasn't even successful in killing ''himself''. (The cyanide had lost its potency and the river was too low to drown in--he was arrested immediately). Later that day, one of the guys who didn't shoot was walking out of a sandwich shop--probably feeling guilty about his massive failure--when the Archduke's driver got lost and wound up ''right in front of him''. This time, he didn't freeze.

* Just about everything in ''Film/{{Armageddon}}'' goes wrong, but they somehow manage to destroy the asteroid anyway. Put briefly, the Russian Space Station explodes because of old, shoddy piping and wiring just after they refuel, one shuttle is destroyed by debris and crashes (but Creator/BenAffleck survives), the other crashes on an almost undrillable section of the asteroid, Creator/SteveBuscemi has a mental breakdown and starts shooting at everybody, the President decides to detonate the nuke prematurely and then doesn't, the asteroid kills more people with geysers when they ''do'' reach the right depth, but the transmitter on the nuke is damaged, forcing BruceWillis to make a HeroicSacrifice.

* Marty [=McFly=] concocts a [[ThePlan plan]] to get Lorraine to fall for George [=McFly=] in ''Film/BackToTheFuture''. Biff unexpectedly intervenes, shattering the plan for George to pretend to deck Marty and rescue Lorraine. Fortunately, George manages to deck Biff and rescue Lorraine for real. Ironically, Biff's intervention saves ThePlan from becoming ASimplePlan with [[HilarityEnsues its ensuing hilarity]]. In concocting the plan, Marty didn't quite get how his own conduct had seriously attracted Lorraine.

* One ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' story has Naruto and Sasuke come up with a plan to get the bells from Kakashi but they don't incorporate (or inform) Sakura. When Sakura manages to get the bells herself and Kakashi congratulates them on their teamwork, Sasuke is quick to remind Naruto of the "Unspoken Rule of Shinobi Combat #6": Whatever happens, it's all according to plan.
