* It seems that when anyone tries to review the godawful ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' film, it is almost a requirement to suggest that it won't be as bad as it's made out to be ( like RiffTrax and WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, with the latter providing a [[Quotes/TemptingFate quote]]). In the case of the Critic, not less than 15 seconds after saying so, he tries (and fails) to pop a cyanide pill.

* Occurs all the time in the ''ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum''. Whenever an agent says anything along the lines of "At last, a break from badfic." or "Now I can catch some sleep." he/she/other/it get sent to another mission. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by references to the "Laws of Narrative Comedy". If a mission is described as appearing "not too bad", it will rapidly get worse.

* Jim Sterling in his ''WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}}'' article [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/jimquisition/4966-Hate-Out-Of-Ten "Hate Out Of Ten"]]. After a rant on gamers whining about how [[EightPointEight a rating of 8 out of 10 for a highly anticipated game is not a good enough score]], he nervously asks "At least we're not criticizing 9's, at least now. Right? Yeah?" Cue a blog criticizing Games Radar for giving ''TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' a 9.

* Web serial novel ''[[TheRaptureLogs OH GOD THE RAPTURE IS BURNING]]'' starts the entire epic story with a sentence that sums up everything you need to know about TemptingFate: "Rapture's nothing but bullshit." The title of the story comes from almost the very next sentence, so you can imagine how that turned out.

* In the ''WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}'' video [[http://blip.tv/retsupurae/the-most-shameful-thing-in-the-world-5020223 The Most Shameful Thing In The World]], slowbeef comments that the video, which is of an anime fan coming up with attacks for a ''{{MUGEN}}'' sprite, just couldn't get any worse. Cue [[TheMelancholyOfHaruhiSuzumiya Hare Hare Yukai]] dance.

* DesuDesBrigade: After learning of the aforementioned Project D being done at a NASA base, Hitch said, "I am so outta here the moment they mention space vampires!" Much later in the review, near the end, when the vampire tells Kuki about their battle with evil aliens across the universe...

** This is probably true for any game they play, be it ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'', ''VideoGame/{{Worms}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' - if things are going their way and someone says something to tempt fate, then they'll get it in the behind.

* A RunningGag on ''WebVideo/TVTrash'' is for host Rowdy C. to set up a situation by saying that there's no way they could do [insert something truly despicable here], then cut instantly to just that. He's even lampshaded his tendency to tempt fate many times.

Added DiffLines:

** Also in his ''PokemonColosseum'' Let's Play, he confuses Dakim's Camerupt and says that now that it's confused, let's hope it does something stupid. Camerupt then used Earthquake, taking out Dakim's Shadow Entei.

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick was ''sure'' that ''[[WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower She-Ra]]'' and [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse He-Man]] weren't as gay as the Critic made them out to be. He-Man ''baking'' proved her wrong.
