* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', this is a common trait for heroes of the [[CatFolk Khajiit]] race, to the point that they even have [[OddJobGods a god for this concept]], Baan Dar. He is commonly attributed with "the genius which lends itself to the creation of last-minute plans to foil the machinations of the Khajiit's foes."

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Most of Commander Shepard's adventures, due to the fact that s/he has no access to trustworthy intelligence on what is happening and is constantly thrown into situations with no idea what is going on or what s/he is going to do about it. The final mission of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' is inherently unplannable, as nobody has ever seen what is on the other side of the Omega-4 Relay and returned to tell the tale. Notably, Shepard is ''trained'' to do this, as a graduate of an elite special operations program that is designed to prepare the trainees for anything.

** ''Apollo Justice'' also happens to be the game where this trope is actually [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]], since the BigBad's plot to [[spoiler:get Phoenix disbarred]] actually depended on the fact that Phoenix would be flying by the seat of his pants. The rest of the game, while playing it straight, showed exactly how in the dark Apollo is, since he's being played by both [[BigGood Phoenix]] ''and'' the BigBad.
