* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Fluttershy was teased by bullies at flight camp for being a weak flyer. If she hadn't been teased by them, Rainbow Dash wouldn't have challenged them to a race to defend Fluttershy's honor and wouldn't have made the sonic rainboom that caused the two pegasi and their future earth pony and unicorn friends to get their cutie marks at the same time, which is apparently critical to their ability to wield the Elements of Harmony. In the Season 5 finale, the villain uses a time travel spell to disrupt the race in several different ways, resulting in one bad alternate present after another. In one trip through the spell, she simply [[SwiperNoSwiping told the bullies to be nice]], creating a timeline where Nightmare Moon rules Equestria.

* In ''Anime/KatsugekiToukenRanbu'', Horikawa Kunihiro worries about the fate of his old master Hijikata Toshizou when he's sent to protect Sakamoto Ryouma from getting captured by the Shinsengumi. He thinks if the Shinsengumi catch Ryouma and execute him, then Hijikata's life won't be so filled with turmoil in the years to come; Izuminokami tells him that failing to capture (or even get a glimpse of) Ryouma was the way History went down, and without the Shinsengumi committing that failure, Ryouma would have never brought on the changes to Japan's political structure that he aided in. Hijikata's ongoing struggles after that event were part of the figure they were so fond of, and changing such fundamental parts of him would be a disservice to their memory of him.

* Creator/WaltDisney's first[[note]][[OldShame not including]] ''Disney/SongOfTheSouth''[[/note]] live-action musical, ''Film/BabesInToyland'', failed to make a splash at the box office. Consequently, Walt looked for some elements that he could improve on next time he would do a fantasy musical, such as production values, substance, and casting. By managing not to repeat the same mistakes of ''Babes in Toyland'', his next foray into this genre became one of the most beloved movies of his career -- ''Film/MaryPoppins''.

* Creator/{{Nintendo}} views the UsefulNotes/WiiU as this. To make a long story short, the Wii U is one of the biggest hardware failures Nintendo ever had, but it allowed the company to come to grips with HD game development, serves as an example of how ''not'' to approach future marketing and software support for their systems, and one of the system's core ideas (a home console with a portable factor) was recycled into [[UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch its successor]].

* Reggie Fils-Amie of [[Creator/{{Nintendo}} Nintendo of America]] has described the UsefulNotes/WiiU as this. It seriously under-performed due to its rushed release date, its comparatively small library of games with frequent droughts during its lifespan, and an abysmal ad campaign that failed to alert people to the fact that it was a brand new console rather than just a spruced-up Wii or an add-on. In response to this, Reggie has clarified that Nintendo will do the best they can to rectify these mistakes, with the current ads for the UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch making it very clear what the system is and who it's for, as well as having a formidable list of third-party developers backing them up and a strong lineup of games for 2017 (with holiday season, a goldmine of sorts for sales, getting particular focus).
