* In ''FanFic/TheDeathGodAlliance'', after examinating an unconscious Nico, Carter concludes he's from a wealthy family who freaked out when he developed some affinity for necromancy and started to neglect the crap out of him, because what other reason could explain the obvious signs of malnutrition and the fact Nico was wandering in a park at the dead of the night? Certainly not the kid's addiction to junk food and his desire to escape his stepmother going stir-crazy...

The reasoning is usually (although not always) completely logically [[SoundValidTrue Valid]], but either one of the premises is wrong, [[DidntSeeThatComing there exist things outside the frame of reference of the deducer]], or there are just plain facts not in evidence that cause the wrong conclusion to be reached.

* Norrington in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'' refuses to interrogate Jack Sparrow about where to find the pirates who attacked Port Royal and kidnapped Elizabeth. The pirates who attacked left Sparrow in his jail cell, therefore they weren't his allies, and so there's no reason to think that Sparrow knows where they went. In any case, Norrington wouldn't trust a pirate's word anyway. Norrington's conclusion is wrong because there are certain facts that he can't have known (they weren't his allies, but they ''were'' his old crew and were in fact his ''enemies'', and he ''did'' know where they went). So Will takes it on himself to spring him and go after Elizabeth himself. Norrington also criticizes Jack as the "worst pirate" he's ever met for, among other things, having a compass that doesn't point north and only one shot for his pistol. Not only does Jack demonstrate himself to be a skilled pirate, but it's later revealed the compass is enchanted and he only carries one shot as a reminder of being marooned by his crew.

** ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest Dead Man's Chest]]'': When Cutler Beckett asks Will to steal Jack's compass, Elizabeth recalls that it had been used to navigate to the Isla de Muerta, and assumes that Beckett is after the Aztec gold. She sneaks into his office at night to dissuade him, whereupon Beckett explains that the compass doesn't ''only'' point to the Isla. Immediately after, he makes the mistake of assuming she has no reason to be there.

**This tends to be Littlefinger's M.O. Using knowledge of other peoples' assumptions against them to stir chaos and turn people against each other. Of course, the success rate of simply causing chaos to benefit himself tends to fall a little into GambitRoulette territory. It would be a bit more believable if he had another few dozen chaos schemes that resulted in no major benefits at all.
