* ''ComicBook/BatmanNoMansLand''; a major American city gets hit by a national disaster, and the government basically leaves it to fend for itself, up to and including writing off the city and blowing the bridges out of town. Some people, including folks who liked the story, decried it as impossible, pointing out things like NoFEMAResponse. Then Hurricane Katrina rolled over New Orleans, and it didn't seem quite so improbable anymore.

** "It's My Party" by Lesley Gore (at that time, a 16-year old New Jersey schoolgirl taking voice and piano lessons) was produced and recorded, vocals, orchestra, brass section and all, as a demo recording in a small four-track studio in New York City by a young Quincy Jones over the course of a day and not meant to be released commercially. That changed after PhilSpector talked to Quincy Jones at a concert both attended of his plans to record the song with the Crystals; Quincy mixed the recording, released acetates to radio stations across the country over the course of that weekend and it reached #1 in a month.

* The 2003-04 English Premier League title for Arsenal, on which they went completely undefeated. This is not only strange in world football, it only had happened once in the highest level of English football... 115 years before.

* Japan's 34-32 victory over South Africa in the 2015 Rugby World Cup was the biggest upset in Rugby World Cup history, and arguably in the sport's history. Two weeks earlier, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eFI6EP2sJw?t=99 a reviewer of the Rugby World Cup 2015 video game]] commented that its simulation of matches in the pool stages "just ends up in weirdness sometimes", citing Japan beating South Africa as an example, adding that "in no reality does that happen".

* The 2016 season of Seattle Sounders FC in [[MajorLeagueSoccer Major League Soccer]]. Shortly before the start of the season, the Sounders lost one of their high-profile players to the Chinese Super League. A string of inconsistent and poor performances led to the team spending much of the first half of the season below the playoff line, at one point sitting at the bottom of the Western Conference. After the firing of head coach Sigi Schmid and his replacement by then-assistant coach Brian Schmetzer, as well as the signing of Designated Player Nicolás Lodeiro, the Sounders went on a run of form rarely seen in MLS, carrying the team all the way to the MLS Cup finals. There, despite the Sounders not registering a single shot on goal, a tight defense (and a miraculous save from GK Stefan Frei) led to penalty kicks and the Sounders' first MLS Cup win in their history of being an MLS team.

* FilleFatale: A young girl (or, for that matter, a young boy) acting in a sexually precocious manner ''is'' [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior troubling]], but not for the reason most people think. It's often a sign that somewhere along the line she (or he) was sexually abused.

* {{Invoked}} in one story from ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'': Irma had been drafted to write the script of a musical based on the first saga, and the dialogue she wrote for a romantic scene was laughed at as too cheesy and unrealistic-except she had copied it from a phone call between Peter Cook and Cornelia ([[HilarityEnsues who was in the room]]), the latter of which ''is the base of one of the characters''.
