A similar situation is one where the hero has mistakenly concluded that one of the usual villains has committed a crime, [[NotMeThisTime when really, it was a different one.]] The hero will knock down the villain's door to discover...them trying on [[DracoInLeatherPants leather pants]]. Like we said, a crime. (Unless it's David Bowie wearing them.)

* One piece of Kickstarter material for ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' had [[DirectLineToTheAuthor Jenna Moran]] meet [[TheGrimReaper the Headmaster of the Bleak Academy]] while he was doing his laundry in Fortitude. Apparently the students at the Bleak Academy can forge Abhorrent weapons, monsters and all varieties of dark magic, but can't build a washing machine or brew detergent.

* In the ''{{Ravenloft}}'' campaign, Vlad Drakov, the cruel Darklord of Falkovnia, practices falconry as a hobby. The incredible irony is, while Drakov is a tyrant with absolutely no respect for ''human'' life, he can't bear to see his birds hurt.
* One of the few universal traits shared by all the [[TabletopGame/{{Exalted}} Yozi]] is a deep and masterful appreciation of music. The king of hell even leads city wide song and dance numbers through the streets on a regular basis. This might have practical benefits given the nature of Hell, but still.
* When not raining plagues and disease on the mortal realms, [[WarhammerFantasy Father]] [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} Nurgle]] enjoys tending his garden. It's a garden devoted entirely to ''disease'', but hey! It's just a garden by another name, right? Nurgle is generally depicted as a kind and generous grandfatherly figure who likes spreading his presents.
* Frequently inverted in TabletopGame/MageTheAscension and TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening by the use of fate magic. Wandering around doing errands and deciding where to wander impulsively while idling around is how entropy-manipulation gets you to the person or item you're seeking.
** [[BazaarOfTheBizarre Goblin Markets]] in ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' are strictly enforced [[TruceZone Truce Zones]] chock-full of useful gear and contacts, so it's not uncommon for this trope to come into play, whether it's rival Freehold members buying Christmas presents, [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Hobgoblin]] mercenaries on their days off, or privateers auctioning off their catches to the [[TheFairFolk True Fae]].
