* In 1965 Avalon Hill created a game called ''$quander'' (Squander), in which each player started with a million Squanderbucks. The first player to lose all of his money won the game. After some changes, it came to the US as well as other countries under the title ''Go for Broke!''

* Anthony Mcgruder created Uncle Ruckus, an original character, for the WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks animated series. He was a BoomerangBigot meant to be the most hated character on the show. Instead, he became one of the most popular, for all the [[MisaimedFandom wrong]] [[DracoInLeatherPants reasons.]]

* Creator/HowardStern [[http://money.cnn.com/2017/02/02/media/kfile-stern-on-trump/index.html believes]] that Creator/DonaldTrump becoming the 45th President of the United States was this trope - he believes that all he wanted was to get a few extra dollars out of Creator/{{NBC}} for ''Series/TheApprentice'' by running against UsefulNotes/HillaryClinton, fully expecting her to win and not expecting to actually ''get'' the Presidency.

* According to crime novelist Val [=McDermid=] (the author behind ''WireInTheBlood''), this is basically what happened when she wrote her [[GenreAdultery children's picture book]] ''My Granny is a Pirate''. For a while there was a trend of celebrities writing children's books, and [=McDermid's=] publisher wanted her to write one too, and refused to listen when she said that that was a particular skill she didn't possess, so she sent her a poem she had made up for her son when he was younger.

* The ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay'' feature ''Shitty Games Done Slow'' is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin pretty much what it sounds like]] -- an AffectionateParody of ''WebVideo/AwesomeGamesDoneQuick'' that focuses on not-so-awesome games and plays them not-so-quickly. But the very first game in the feature was ''VideoGame/MindJack'', and they accidentally beat both their predicted time and the only existing record they could find. They concluded that this was because the game was so unpopular that there was just no competition to SpeedRun it.

* In ''VideoGame/MedievalIITotalWar'', unlike its predecessor ''[[VideoGame/RomeTotalWar Rome]]'', it is not possible to change your Faction Heir, presumably for historical accuracy. If the game decides that your Faction Heir is going to be that greedy, incompetent governor in the middle of nowhere instead of your kickass, utterly loyal and upright general, your only option is to have your faction heir killed as described in UriahGambit. However, if he survives, there is a good chance that he'll come away with a trait that makes him ever ''harder'' to kill in the future. Good luck with that...

* ''Series/TheBasilBrushShow'' episode "The Pitz Hotel" Zigzags this trope. Every attempt Basil and Steven make to drive their hotel guests away so that they can get their flat back only makes them more popular. Eventually, they realize that they can make a fortune using the ReversePsychology approach; only to discover that the landlord is charging them £100 per night for every guest who stays with them. They eventually get things back to normal using a FailureGambit; hiring Anil to cook the food, sending most of the guests to hospital (they were the lucky ones).
