* Amazingly PlayedForDrama in ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' - [[spoiler: The character Fakir is [[RealityWarper literally capable]] of RewritingReality by telling stories, but if he doesn't write well enough then his stories start conforming to reality instead of the other way around. In one instance he tries to write that monsters stopped attacking the main character...and finds he has to write that they kept attacking.]]

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'': According to Kubo, her initial ideas were knocked off-track when [[spoiler:Yuri and Victor fell in love instead of keeping their relationship strictly as coach and skater as initially intended]], and certain plot points [[spoiler:such as the possibility of separating the pair at the end of the series]], no longer made any sense. In short, the characters hijacked the plot.

* GregWeisman, creator of ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', has recounted a few plot points in this fashion. In particular, the revelation that [[spoiler:Puck is Owen]] came in a flash of "so ''that's'' it!" rather than "wouldn't it be neat if...?"
