* In ''Webcomic/{{Galaxion}}'' Patty gets bitten by an alien bug. The team worries a bit, but soon lets it go in favour of more pressing concerns, but the fever she develops after a while is actually plot-important. (And how!)

* Something of a mutual example in the finale of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': After Zuko attacks Aang for taking a break from training and they each explain their sides, it turns out both had a key piece of information the other lacked. The Gaang had decided to push back their timeline (waiting until after Sozin's comet had passed to depose the Fire Lord) because they didn't think that a one-day power-up would do much to change the status quo of the hundred year long war they were looking to end. Zuko didn't tell them that the Fire Lord planned to use the power-up to commit genocide on the Earth Kingdom because he didn't think they needed the added motivation to do what (he thought) they were already planning on doing anyway. Had either side spoken up earlier, they all would have been more prepared for the final battle.

* Inverted in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix''. Sirius considered the fact that he and Harry are close to be trivial which is why he never told Kreacher to keep his trap shut about it. [[spoiler: Which is why Kreacher could tell Bellatrix about it and in turn how Voldemort was able to use it to lay trap on Harry.]]

** In Act III, Rason confesses that the [[RestrainingBolt Holy Lock]] was never actually made with the express intent to keep a ghoul in check, let alone one as powerful as Tsukune's, but he doesn't actually make this known to the group until ''after'' Tsukune has broken ''six'' links on the lock. To be fair, the other angels had repeatedly ensured him that the lock was indestructible either way, but still.

* ''[[FanFic/KingdomHearts3FinalStand Radiant Garden Renegades]]'': From the minute Xehanort arrives on Radiant Garden in chapter 4, Kaname, able to sense his darkness and noticing that Kairi is terrified of him, along with Xehanort's StalkerWithACrush behavior toward Rimi, is naturally suspicious of him, but as he doesn't know what to make of it, he doesn't say a word about it to Ansem the Wise until after Ansem reveals that Xehanort has been conducting experiments with Heartless behind his back and writing reports under Ansem's name; he admits that he most likely should have said something before them, but by that point, it's too late.

* ''VideoGame/Persona4'': Yukiko's knowledge that [[spoiler:Adachi]] was at the inn spending a lot of time with Ms. Yamano just before she died is the first non-circumstantial piece of evidence the group has towards finding out his identity as the true Killer, but she doesn't make this known unless the player casts suspicion on [[spoiler:Adachi]] in the first place... ''at the very end of the game''. To be fair, however, none of them had actually thought to suspect [[spoiler:Adachi]] of being the killer in the first place.

** In Act IV, Apoch and Astreal were well aware that Apoch's LaserBlade could penetrate Jovian and Jacqueline's force fields, but don't think to mention it to the rest of the gang until the very minute they've split up to save Moka from Hokuto as well as take on Jovian and Jacqueline, and Apoch isn't with either group that's actually fighting Jovian and Jacqueline. While Apoch has the excuse of having been explicitly told by Dark ''not'' to say another word about Jovian and Jacqueline's attack, and obediently doing so because she's Dark's YesMan, Astreal just offhandedly mentions it while the others are bemoaning the fact that nothing they do can break said force fields.

** In one episode, a man who'd been suffering for years was so desperate for a diagnosis that he ''took the clinic hostage at gunpoint'' to force House to diagnose him. In the end, the key to his diagnosis was [[spoiler:mentioning that he'd once been to Florida. He'd repeatedly claimed that he'd never been to the tropics, not realizing that Florida counted.]]

* The crucial clue that HerculePoirot needs to solve the mystery is usually something like this. It's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in TheABCMurders, when he summons the families of all of the victims precisely for the purpose of talking about the trivial things surrounding the murders, in hopes that there will be some small detail that connects all of them. [[spoiler: There is, but it turns out to be a RedHerring.]]

* In ''Webcomic/{{SSDD}}'', Michael is the only member of a group trying to prevent [[AIIsACrapshoot The Oracle]] from gaining control who is not from the BadFuture in which it has done so. He also knows that British Intelligence created something called the Echelon Plug-in (he was given a copy of it). Two problems. First, he's the group's ButtMonkey, so nobody else tells him anything, which means he has no idea what the Oracle is, never mind that it exists. Second, he's the group's ButtMonkey, so nobody listens to him, nobody else knows what The Echelon Plug-in is, never mind that it exists. [[spoiler:When they ''finally'' tell Michael about Oracle, Michael makes a comparison of the two programs and the others realize that the Oracle and Echelon Plug-in are ''one and the same''. In other words, the Oracle already exists in Michael's time, which explains a ''lot''.]]
