* 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 WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged, and contender for the ultimate example of this trope, it turns out [[spoiler: that the events of the entire series were the result of Kayaba rushing to deadline without sleep and screwing up the game so badly it had developed a bug that accidentally killed people, and after running 500 hours of straight consciousness, his thought process was that he thought the game would review better if he made it look like he killed thousands of people on purpose than only a few people by accident.]]

** Another instance features Calvin making a fool of himself while trying to catapult a large snowball from a springboard consisting of a plank and a log.

* 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.

* Overall this precise story seems to be something of a wandering anecdote and as the tales of the conquering are usually written when the conquering is done, it's hard to say whether the falling down and quipping about it happened as described or at all.

* When Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar went to Africa (to fight his nemesis, Pompeius Magnus), he stumbled and fell when leaving the ship. Since this could be considered a bad omen, he immediately exclaimed, "I have you, Africa!"
