* 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.]]

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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!"

* {{Marvel|Comics}}'s ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion''. Creator/BrianMichaelBendis referencing older issues, sometimes years old, of various titles and claiming they are all part of the invasion. This is a habit of Bendis's. For instance, at the end of his ''Avengers Disassembled'' storyline, he included a few pages from the issue where ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} and the ComicBook/ScarletWitch joined the team; their thought bubbles happened to seem kind of like {{foreshadowing}}.

* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', Onni shows up in Mora with just a bag too small to contain even a change of clothes. When Taru asks him if it's really all he packed, we get to see a brief flash-back in which Onni's refusal to board the boat until the very last minute causes him to abandon most of his luggage on the pier and drop the one extra bag he had managed to grab in the water. Onni's official explantion? He "has no need for wordly possessions".

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'' [[FakeUltimateHero Lockhart]] founds the Dueling Club and is [[TooDumbTolive dumb enough]] to suggest [[TokenEvilTeammate Professor]] [[{{Badass}} Snape]] as his sparring partner. Snape promptly wipes the floor with him, but Lockhart cheerfully explains that he just wanted to show what you ''shouldn't'' do in a fight.

* If you ask Remilia Scarlet from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' what she won in the SuperPowerLottery, she'll boastfully tell you that she won the ability to [[WindsOfDestinyChange Manipulate Fate]]. If you ask her little sister, Flandre, she'll tell you that Remilia won the ability to invoke this trope whenever she wants to look cooler than she really is.
