* Sam, one of Lara's friends and crewmates in ''VideoGame/TombRaider2013'' began recording a video diary because she thought that Dr Whitman would take credit for any discoveries Lara made, which Lara brushes off. Later on, you can find a letter Whitman wrote to his wife asking her not to divorce him just yet... because Lara found something and he's going to get rich by claiming the discovery as his own.

* On ''Series/BreakingBad'', Lydia refuses to give Walter the information he needs until she finds another way to make herself indispensable to him, for fear that, once he has the info, he'll kill her. Walter scoffs about how he would kill her in a public place in the middle of the day with witnesses everywhere, [[spoiler:but that is, in fact, exactly what he was planning to do]].

* The Austro-Hungarian admiralty became immensely paranoid after two MAS (basically, medium-large speedboats with a pair of torpedoes strapped on the sides employed by the Italians) penetrated the harbour of Trieste and torpedoed two coastal defence ships (sinking one and damaging the other) in it. It increased the surveillance of the harbour and deployed torpedo nets near any moored ship. The captains considered the torpedo nets a superfluous navigational annoyance... Until three MAS penetrated the apparently impenetrable bay of Bakar and fired torpedoes. Only the torpedo nets prevented the sinking of three warships. Before leaving, ''[[IShallTauntYou they left mocking messages daring them to come out and fight]]''. The purpose was to bait the survivors into leaving the torpedo nets and ''getting torpedoed in the narrow exit by an ambush force of one scout cruiser, eight destroyers, three standard torpedo boats and two submarines''. The fleet, having learnt the lesson, didn't leave until well after the ambush force decided to leave. After what is now appropriately known as the Bakar Mockery, the Austro-Hungarian fleet ''increased'' the surveillance, just to be safe... And not knowing that the Italians were experimenting with the human torpedo, that could not be detected with the technology of the time.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Gohan may be a Half-Saiyan, but [[EducationMama Chi]]-[[{{Tsundere}} Chi]] was not okay with Gohan leaving to go to Namek for two months. While Chi-Chi may be unreasonable sometimes, she was rightfully paranoid with Gohan going to a potentially dangerous planet and leaving her alone for two months [[AdultFear (she had not seen him for a whole year)]] to revive Piccolo, the same guy who blasted a hole through Goku and killed her husband in the Saiyan arc. She displays this trope throughout the series when Gohan goes up against the Androids and Cell, fearing for Gohan's health and well-being when he's fighting bad guys.

So, he decides to destroy them along with their home planet. Turns out, Frieza was right to fear them. Not only were the Saiyans planning to overthrow him, but a Super Saiyan was more powerful than him.

*** Added the fact that when an enemy spy is set aflame, they'll also glow on the color of their true affiliation. This might look like unnecessary fluff, because receiving damage is all the evidence a player will need to hunt down a spy, but remember that a corner or a fray is all they need to switch costumes or go invisible. This little effect will ensure that not even that will help them, as everyone around will notice, not only the attacking player.

* Flaky might come across as being irrationally nervous and the character has a boatload of phobias in ''HappyTreeFriends'', but considering what usually ends up happening to the HTF gang, and the [[EverythingTryingToKillYou somewhat unusual delivery mechanisms of said fates,]] her fears seem rather justified... but unfortunately her caution rarely pays off due to FinaglesLaw being in effect.
