** When Caleb crumbles about his lack of success in capturing Phobos' still free minions and Sandpit's escape, he wonders if Phobos, Cedric and Miranda would escape from the Infinite City. Immediately he hears the alarms informing of Miranda and Jade's escape with Nerissa's help. As he rushes to the dungeons, he admits to himself that he jinxed it. In the same scene, he also wondered if Raythor would return from the Abyss of Shadows, and he later finds out that that has happened as well.

* In ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-26870-46/RubyPaladin+The+Bunny+Hutch.htm Maximus]]'', the Council has finally gotten the newcomers Drakon Empire to sit down for peace talks over their war against the [[Franchise/MassEffect Batarians]] when Tevos accidentally taunts Murphy as their fleet appears.

* Tevos, in ''Fanfic/MassEffectEndOfDays''. This being an alternate-humanity-tech fic, the [[NotSoOmniscientCouncilOfBickering Council]], while discussing [[spoiler: how to curb the Alliance's growing power in the galaxy, and how to potentially strike back]], Tevos asks the others to be realistic.

-->[[spoiler: ''"Let us be reasonable, Valern." Tevos spoke again. "What's the worst they could do? Bring back the Rachni?"'']]

** One notable instance in Chapter 9: when Vivi is trying to rouse the crew before dawn, Cross begs to be allowed to sleep if it's anything less than falling off the edge of the earth. Not long after that, the Grand Line draws their ship towards an InevitableWaterfall.
** Tsuru in Chapter 24, much to Sengoku's ire.
** Cross of all people makes the cardinal sin to Murphy right before the Straw Hats [[spoiler: [[Anime/BaronOmatsuriAndTheSecretIsland accept an invitation to a certain festive island]]]], when he says, "What's the worst that could happen?"
** [[TooDumbToLive Spandam]], in Chapter 39. Multiple times.
** Right at the end of Chapter 41, Cross does so and considers afterwards that he should have punched himself with his Impact Dial for doing so.
** One not played for laughs: [[spoiler: Cross exults after checking Ace's Vivre Card and finding it still intact, and celebrates over successfully stopping the Paramount War. The next time we see Ace, [[InSpiteOfANail he, Squardo and Whitey have been captured by the Marines]] courtesy of Aokiji giving Blackbeard an unexpected opening.]]
** Robin has done so a couple of times. By the second time she remarks that she should've known better.

* In the ''Film/StarTrek'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9795158/1/Written-in-the-Stars Written in the Stars]]'', Fem!Kirk gives Spock a lesson in why he should ''never'' invoke this trope. Spock just makes things worse.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8239413/14/The-Serpentine-Subterfuge The Serpentine Subterfuge]]'' Harriet Potter (who's currently pretending to be her cousin) tries to trick a possessed Ginny Weasley into doing a [[EvilGloating villain monologue]] and Ginny replies that it doesn't matter how long she talks because "No one is coming to save you."
-->Rigel wasn't sure if the universe was testing her or not. It seemed too much like an ironic taunt from Fate. Surely no one in the world was so arrogant, so ridiculously confident, as to spit in the face of Fate so blatantly. It wasn't asking to eat your own words. It was handing the universe the ingredients and then giving Fate a recipe for your own disaster.

* In ''Fanfic/AHero'', the second chapter has Dalek Sec watching Homura battle Walpurgisnacht from afar, and concluding that the Witch isn't looking his way, and wouldn't attack him. Fortunately, Sec's GenreSavvy enough to realize what he just did, which gives him just enough time to learn that a horde of familiars are heading his way.

-->'''The Doctor''': *''winces''* Oh, did you ''have'' to say that? [[GenreSavvy Now they're bound to turn up. I swear, everyone has to go and jinx it all, saying things like 'It can't possibly get any worse' or 'Ooh, it's unsinkable!']]

* At one point in the ''Blog/ReadingRainbowverse'', Fluttershy promised to pole-dance at Macintosh's wedding during a drunken rant. Once she sobered up, she immediately added the caveat that she "had to grow a horn first." Pinkie Pie, being very GenreSavvy, pointed out what she was doing, and Fluttershy pointed out that it was very unlikely for her ever to become an alicorn, and Pinkie would probably become an alicorn ''first...''

* ''Fanfic/{{Kage}}'', a crossover between ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'': when [[EmpoweredBadassNormal Jade]] first arrives in Meridian and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero is targeted by the heroes who suspect her of being Prince Phobos' underling]], Irma says nearly arrogantly that she couldn't possibly beat [[BadassNormal Caleb]] or the [[MagicalGirlWarrior Guardians]] themselves when [[TheMentor Yan Lin]] warns them not to underestimate someone they don't know. The chase ends with [[TheWorfEffect the Guardians, Caleb and a dozen of soldiers being rendered helpless]] by [[CastingAShadow shadow]] [[CombatTentacles tentacles]] created by Jade who's rendered [[DemonicPossession under the influence]] of the [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Queen of the Shadowkhan]] by the provocations thrown at her.

* In ''Fanfic/WhiteDevilOfTheMoon'', Fate repeatedly has to fend off Luna, Tuxedo Mask and the Outer Senshi, who mistakenly think she is a Dark Senshi who has kidnapped [[LyricalNanoha Nanoha]] (who is also Anime/SailorMoon and the reincarnation of Princess Serenity). After the situation gets to the point where Fate has to tell Nanoha about it despite not wanting her to get involved out of ChronicHeroSyndrome and as a result, put a strain on her body, Nanoha remarks "At least we aren't likely to have any trouble show up at a wedding." At the wedding, Jadeite attacks in an attempt to kill Nanoha, who severely taxes her Linker Core by killing him with a Divine Buster.

* In chapter 7 of ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/185340/1000-virgin-mares-1-frickin-badass-dark-overdude-infinite-facehoofing 1000 Virgin Mares]]'', Trixie comments that the threat facing her and the protagonist might be a dragon, but probably not because it's too far north. The protagonist immediately calls her on it, and sure enough, the threat turns out to be a dragon.
-->'''The Overdude''' *{{Facepalm}}*: Now you said it. You realize you've just ''put'' a dragon there now. Tinker bell make-over says it's a dragon.
