* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): The first we hear of Parshendi spies among the Parshmen slaves is in Navani's journal (which was written after the book), where she notes they ''really'' should have expected it.
-->'''Rlain:''' We choose a form based on what we need, the job required of us. Dullform, one of those forms, looks a lot like a parshman. Hiding among them is easy.\\
'''Navani:''' We account our parshmen with precision.\\
'''Rlain:''' Yes, and we are noticed--but rarely questioned. Who questions when you find an extra sphere lying on the ground? It's not something suspicious. It's merely fortune.

* Iain M. Bank's ''TheCulture/{{Excession}}'' starts with the titular [[OutsideContextProblem Excession]] showing up out of nowhere, throwing most of the galaxy's careful plans into chaos. Just as they've started properly planning for how to handle the Excession, [[spoiler:it turns out that the ''Sleeper Service'' isn't Eccentric after all... when it converts its entire internal capacity into engine space (letting it clock speeds of ''230,000 times light speed'') and then pulls out the fully-fledged ''war fleet'' it's been building while pretending to be Eccentric.]]

* In ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' this happens several times throughout the series-given the many plans and secrets that abound. One season six episode, "Blind Love" has two-someone kidnaps Diana not knowing she's far, far more dangerous than she looks. And the villain who makes a Love Potion specifically to tear the group apart by causing a pile up of all-powerful unrequited love doesn't realize Rosalee is pregnant which causes her to not drink the dosed wine and remain affected while everyone else is hopelessly affected.
