* Donovan Dijak was most responsible for bringing an end to The House Of Truth's second Wrestling/RingOfHonor run, the very same Dijak Truth Martini took in to prevent him from challenging for Wrestling/JayLethal's television title belt. He was paired with Joey Daddiego and redirected at the TagTeam titles of War Machine, but when he refused to used the Book Of Truth for an illegal advantage, Martini barred him from the group...and got kicked in the head as a result of this allowing Prince Nana plenty of time to turn Dijak towards his own designs. Daddiego and Hendrix then went after Dijak and Nana in revenge, leaving Lethal basically on his own regarding Wrestling/BulletClub, who swiftly positioned Adam Cole to take his last title belt.[[/folder]]

* The ''Podcast/BlackJackJustice'' episode "Justice For Some" features a client of Jack's planning to steal his wife's heirloom necklace during an event and invite known thieves to be fall guys for Jack to catch. The plan fails because one had legitimately reformed, another was on a whole other floor casing the joint's ''artwork'', and Jack managed to grab the third when the lights went out to facilitate the robbery. This leaves the client the only person in any position to have performed the act.

*** Probably a good example of this is [[https://i.imgur.com/qQ3j7MB.png this story]], where a player who played a BigGood in a CrapsackWorld completely and utterly derailed a cynical GM's world by being IncorruptiblePurePureness: [[spoiler:a game where that had Corruption Points, his character had 0 and upon obtaining a special artifact that would make them a God but skyrocket their Corruption Points by a multiple of 100 to make them the new BigBad. However, 0 times anything is still 0.]]
