** In ''Film/TheTerminator'', John Connor would not have been conceived if the T-800 hadn't traveled back in time and attempted to kill Sarah Connor, while Skynet wouldn't have been created if T-800 hadn't traveled back in time and attempted to kill Sarah Connor. Thus, Skynet created both itself and its greatest enemy.

* ''Franchise/GreenLantern'': This is pretty much how Hal Jordan got his ring. Green Lantern Abin Sur heard a prophecy from Atrocitus that his ring would fail and he would die, setting off a chain of events that would lead to [[ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar Sinestro turning evil and spreading chaos across the galaxy]]. When Sur went to Earth to investigate this prophecy, he was terrified of his ring failing; so much so that, with prodding from Atrocitus, he lost his belief in his own abilities and succumbed to fear, [[EmotionalPowers thus ensuring the ring would indeed stop working for him]]. This led to his death, Hal getting the ring, and everything else that came after.

''Mirabelle of ''Series/TheKicks'' believes that she's not smart enough to pass her classes, so she doesn't even make an effort. This, naturally, results in the very failure she believed would happen. She finally breaks out of this routine in "Breakaway."

* During the reign of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suleiman_the_Magnificent Suleiman I]], Suleiman and his second wife Hürrem Sultan were afraid that Suleiman's four sons would end up killing each other over the line of succession. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7p4AcTBG7o Suleiman went crazy over this]], culminating in [[NiceJobBreakingItHero having two of the sons put to death for "disloyalty" to the throne, and watching a third weep himself to death]].
** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roxelana Hürrem Sultan]] can be said to be an {{evil stepmother}} who Suleiman happened to be [[Happily Married completely in love with]]. While "{{the magnificent}}" perfectly describes Suleiman, Hürrem Sultan's {{evil plan}} was to get her biological son with Suleiman [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selim_II Selim II]] on the throne. Her plan worked, and Selim turned out to be a {{sketchy successor}} and {{the Caligula}} - he [[http://www.cracked.com/article_18786_the-5-most-inspiring-things-ever-accomplished-while-drunk.html invaded Cyprus to secure his supply of]] [[TheAlcoholic Commandaria Wine]]. The invasion a failure that started the Ottoman Empire's {{Shocking Defeat Legacy}} and was the background for Shakespeare's {{Othello}}. A common insult in Selim II's reign was "may you become grand vizier to Sultan Selim" as he only wanted {{yes men}} and [[YouHaveFailedMe frequently killed his advisers for disagreeing with him]].

* People who are afraid of being rejected by someone they love often become distant and avoidant towards that person in order to protect themselves. Their distantness and avoidantness then leads to that person rejecting them.
