*** Likewise, the capture of Latias from the same [=LP=]. Given the very improbable conditions at the time [[spoiler:(a level 50 Pokémon at full health, also with a Nest Ball)]], his odds were just '''0.4%'''.

* In ''WebVideo/{{Tabletop}}'', The odds of [[spoiler: [[Creator/{{Nigahiga}} Ryan Higa]]'s feat of rolling ten brains on his first turn in ''ZombieDice'']] approach '''infinity'''. Creator/WilWheaton speculates that, in order to balance his luck out, somewhere in the universe a planet spontaneously imploded.

-->'''O'Dell:''' God's honest truth, Homer. What are the chances... a bunch of kids from Coalwood... actually winning the national science fair?\\
'''Homer:''' A million to one, O'Dell.\\
'''O'Dell:''' That good? Well, why didn't you say so?

--> '''Supermutant6112:''' Alright, there are 24 spaces on the board. Every single turn, there is a 1 in 24 chance of landing on the "Lose a turn" spot. This means that Danny had a (1/24)^4 chance of getting FOUR turns lost. That is one in three-hundred-thirty-three-thousand-seven-hundred-seventy-six, or, to put it in simpler terms, three in a million.

In layman's terms: ''if there's a million to one chance against something of vital importance happening, then it's that one time rather than the other million times.'' This is TruthInTelevision to a certain degree that it becomes likely that an extremely improbable event will occur to someone, and it's [[AnthropicPrinciple his story that's told.]]

* In the original ''Film/{{Ghostbusters|1984}}'' movie, our heroes manage to stop Gozer by crossing the streams of their proton packs. Egon had earlier warned his comrades against "[[ForbiddenChekhovsGun crossing the streams]]" on pain of being vaporized, but here states that there's "a slim chance" they'll survive. Since they're the heroes, they do.

* ''Anime/DigimonSavers'': The entire time TheHeros are fighting [[BigBad Yggdrasil]], the Computer God of the Digital World, it constantly calculates their chances of winning. "You're chances of winning are exceedingly close to zero." "I calculate a 0.000001% change of you succeeding." And so forth.
