* This is ''the'' primary tactic [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRS8a8HjqFs Petyr Baelish]] uses in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', by his own admission. He creates crises to upset the status quo and to [[OpportunisticBastard take advantage of whatever opportunities then present themselves]] in the resulting chaos. The scale of this is hard to grasp in the earlier books, but it soon becomes apparent that [[spoiler:his destabilising actions could very well be said to be responsible for the entire war, at least in aggregate; just to name three of his numerous plots, he had Jon Arryn poisoned, he framed Tyrion Lannister for the attempted assassination of Bran Stark, and - perhaps most catastrophically - he put the Iron Throne over ''twenty million gold dragons'' in debt to the Iron Bank before getting himself reassigned to the Vale and well clear of the immediate blast radius that is likely to result through the flailings of his successors as Master of Coin when they fail to deal with it.]]

--->'''Leland Owlsley:''' Heroes and their consequences are why we have our current opportunities.--->'''Matt Murdock:''' Yeah, the world watched half of New York get destroyed. That's a lot of sympathy.

*** In "Condemned", Matt Murdock is holed up with Vladimir in an abandoned building, and overpowers a police officer who stumbles upon them, but not before the officer is able to call for help. Ben Urich, who'd just published a piece on Fisk's corruption at Union Allied, is among the reporters at the scene. Wesley, tipped off by the crooked detectives in their pocket, warns Fisk that if Urich gets suspicious, they might have a problem. Fisk replies, "Problems are just opportunities that haven't presented themselves."
