* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Kankuro tempts fate by addressing Gaara's "impenetrable defenses" in Episode 48. Cue Rock Lee going ballistic and pinballing Gaara across the arena. It doesn't work, however. Not long after, Sasuke pierces Gaara's sand shield and causes him to bleed for the first time.

** Kabuto declares that his Impure World Resurrection has no weaknesses. Naturally, it bites him in the ass multiple times; not only that, but the two characters who turn it against him most dramatically (Madara and Itachi) go out of their way to declare that they're its weakness, ''even though they didn't hear him say it originally''.

** Also surprisingly happens meta-wise, during the infamous [[HilariousOuttakes "Ran out of ink" rant]] by SpikeSpencer (Shinji's VA). One of the rants against the GainaxEnding is "Okay, the movie better sure as Hell make up for this, I'm telling you right now, 'cause I'm stuck in Nowhereland!". Sure enough, the movie is released, and... it goes FromBadToWorse. [[UpToEleven Far worse]] that Spencer might've preferred being stuck in Nowhereland.

** A rather memorable example comes from an unlucky group of soldiers. The commander of said soldiers insists that Guts reputation as a [[OneManArmy "Hundred Man Slayer"]] couldn't possibly be true, or at the very least, an exaggeration. It's not. May we also point out during this discussion, Guts is beyond a state of UnstoppableRage after finding poor Griffith in his tortured state. They didn't stand a chance.
** Even protagonist Guts pulls one of these, possibly the primate and worse one in the series. After [[spoiler: defeating Griffith in a duel, winning his freedom from the Hawks]] Guts says in his mind that he wasn't a big player in the Hawk's success and that [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong Griffith would eventually get over it and the Hawks would press on]]. No, Guts. [[{{Yandere}} Griffith]] [[IfICantHaveYou did NOT]] [[DespairEventHorizon get over it]]. And the Hawks [[YouCantGoHomeAgain got into deeper]], [[FromBadToWorse and DEEPER shit]].

* Subverted at least once in ''[[NarutoTheAbridgedSeries Naruto Abridged]]''. Two ninja guards discuss their hatred of giant snakes that pop out of nowhere and kill you. Naturally, a giant snake pops out of nowhere and destroys the guard tower... next to them.

* In the original ''Manga/DragonBall'' Bulma, Yamcha, Oolong and Puar had relocated the Kame House to avoid being found by King Piccolo and his minions, and Oolong and Bulma quipped that now Piccolo couldn't find them anymore. Cue Tambourine, Piccolo's minion assigned to murder the martial artists, coming down from the sky to ''ask for directions for the Kame House's original location''.

* ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'' rarely follows the tropes that anyone who's at least a bit GenreSavvy would see from miles away. However, an early episode of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' mentions that the prime minister was put in her position because she lacked the ambition to interfere with the directions of [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness the people in charge.]]

* Toward the end of various battles, characters in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' tend to declare victory before they've actually won. The villains do this ''a lot'', but the heroes will sometimes do it, too. You can't really blame them, because the battles were going in their favor and under normal circumstances, there's no way the opposition would win. Then suddenly, said opposition developed a clever strategy that gives them the victory. It's like a cue telling the viewers that the fights are ending and the apparent "winner" will actually lose.
