After running 500 hours of madman for three weeks straight consciousness, his thought process was to rush out ''Sword Art Online'', only to discover that he'd created a GameBreakingBug that [[TheMostDangerousVideoGame killed players when their characters died]]. Since he was [[SanitySlippage having a mental breakdown due to stress and sleep deprivation]], the game would review better if best response he made could come up with was to lock ten thousand players in this death game, tell them they had to WinToExit, and "make it look like all part of your master plan instead of an ever-spiraling series of events that you have long since lost control of." Which he threatened thought would lead to kill thousands of people on purpose than only a few people by accident.better Metacritic scores.]]

* After deleting an incoherent tweet ending in the [[MemeticMutation by then memetic]] nonsense word "covfefe", UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump attempted to save face by challenging followers to guess the meaning of the PerfectlyCromulentWord and apparently compelling press secretary Sean Spicer to imply it was some sort of codeword or in-joke if challenged on it.

* Absolutely glorious example from the end of Part 2. [[CrazyPrepared Joseph Joestar]] drops [[BigBad Cars]] into a volcano to try and kill him. Unfortunately for him, it doesn't work, and Cars re-emerges and cuts Joseph's hand off, and it goes tumbling off into oblivion. Half a chapter later, Joseph manages to trigger a massive eruption, and Cars is planning to just fly away from it... until Joseph's ''severed hand'' comes flying out of the volcano again, propelled on venting gas, and hits him right in the throat, distracting him from the process of forming wings. His last words before he's blasted into orbit are directed at Joseph, accusing him of having planned this all along (which isn't as implausible as it sounds, in this series). Joseph immediately takes credit for it, while simultaneously thinking "''As if! That was just total luck! [[{{Troll}} But if it'll piss him off...]]''"

** In Part 3, Alessi has a de-aged and wounded Polnareff cornered, and attacks him with his Stand. The attack causes Silver Chariot's rapier to snap, and the point accidentally ends up lodged in Alessi's neck, allowing Polnareff to escape. As he flees, Polnareff claims he totally did it on purpose.

[[folder:Radio]]
* In the ''Radio/CabinPressure'' episode "Helsinki", while Carolyn is showing her sister Ruth her [[TheAllegedCar Alleged Aeroplane]], she claims that the wing is supposed to be doing that and the plane is supposed to make that sound. She is unable, however, to go through with claiming that bits of the plane are supposed to fall off.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Happens occasionally in pro wrestling. Due to the nature of the entire enterprise being a live performance in front of a crowd, action during the matches can be botched. Often when a botch is noticeable, the crowd will chant "You fucked up!" at the offending wrestler, especially if they didn't like him much to begin with. A heel wrestler who falls victim to this will sometimes turn to the crowd and sneer "I MEANT TO DO THAT," just to play up the fact that he is, in fact, a bit of a dick, for the sake of the show.

* In general, a good performer is not necessarily one who never trips up, but one who's quick enough in thinking on their feet to pull this trope so well you don't even notice.
