* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' there are two instances of this; the first is that the BigBad was expecting some kind of superweapon [[spoiler: not a SealedEvilInACan.]] The second ''is actually a good thing for the heroes'' [[spoiler: Rita, and no one else, expected them using an apatheia to create an aer controller to aid Estelle would create [[NatureSpirit Undine]]!]]

* Pretty much any non-native darklord in the {{Ravenloft}} setting, upon committing some horrible deed that crossed the MoralEventHorizon in pursuit of their own evil goals or passions, Didn't See It Coming that the Mists would abduct them and trap them in an EpiphanicPrison for their troubles.

For darklords from other game-worlds, this possible outcome would rate as an Unknown Unknown, as few outlanders know much about Ravenloft; for the few native villains who ''do'', it's still this trope, but an Unknown Known (because they wouldn't have expected it to happen to ''them'').

* ''LightNovel/FateZero'', Unknown Unknowns example: [Rider was thinking he could defeat Gilgamesh with his [[BadassArmy Ionian Hetairoi]] if he was only faced with [[HyperspaceArsenal Gate of Babylon]]. He did [[OhCrap NOT]] expect [[spoiler:to be faced with [[InfinityPlusOneSword Ea]], Gilgamesh´s own sword capable of [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroying the world]] and his entire army with it in a single swing.]]

* ''Manga/CityHunter'':
** In his first named appearance Ryo couldn't possibly have seen coming that an actress would be able to hire Umibozu to kill herself;
** Umibozu's second appearance had him hire Ryo to impersonate him with a girl (Ryo didn't know that Umibozu was a friend of her late father and had paid her music education. Once that was known, it was clear why);
** Who would expect Umibozu to tell Miki she had to kill City Hunter if she wanted to marry him? Also, Ryo and Kaori made a false assumption on the reason, and thought he didn't want to marry Miki because she was Terminator in a drag (Hilarity Ensued when they saw her);
** The two assistants of a Corrupt Corporate Executive tried to hire Umibozu to kill City Hunter and his charges (one of which being a girl 11 years old), not knowing that not only Umibozu and Ryo were allies (sort of) and he doesn't kill children, but had even convinced Ryo to take that job. Ryo was left speechless when Umibozu delivered him the two guys, who were Lampshade Hanging the whole situation.

* In ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', this is Maui's reaction word-for-word when the ocean comes to life and put the title heroine on the raft. "Did ''not'' see that coming."

* The firing of James Comey from his position as head of the FBI turned into this for the Trump administration where under the False Assumptions that the Democrats would cheer on Trump for getting rid of a guy they hated instead had them point out just how suspicious the entire action was, and ultimately caused a lot of backlash. Comey, for his part, didn't see his firing coming and learned about it when he saw a report on TV about it, which he initially thought was a prank.

** If a country didn't see someone like Trump coming, it was definitively Mexico. The Mexican government didn't expect a situation like this since basically the ''UsefulNotes/MexicanAmericanWar'' and the Mexican Revolution, both events that happened more than a century ago, because anyone in Mexico thought the U.S. would face a really big backlash if they tried to do something against Mexico ever again, since the political consequences both inside and outside the country would be too much to handle for any government. But the geopolitical situation has brutally changed in few years and now Mexico would have to face an uphill battle against a very hostile American government.

** This can happen even if someone has CombatClarivoyance; Katakuri, one of Big Mom's Sweet Commanders, has trained his Observation Haki so well that it gives him glimpses of the future. When he sees that his sister will fail to kill Sanji, Katakuri tries to snipe the chef himself. Sanji does a BulletDodge so quickly that not even Katakuri foresaw it.
