'''Instead''': No one stays with the Beast, so that he's alone when Gaston pierces through the castle's defenses to get to the Beast in the West Wing. This means he nearly gets killed, and would have died if he hadn't seen Belle return.

* In ''WesternAnimation/WatershipDown'', a film that portrays the grim and realistic life of a rabbit, a prologue at the very beginning reveals that the reason for this is a very prominent example of this trope. In the very beginning, all of the animals lived together in peace and harmony, until the rabbits population started increasing rapidly and the rabbits started claiming most of the food and resources for themselves. Eventually the animal God Frith tells the leader of the rabbits El-ahrairah to get his people under control, or else ''he'' will find ways to control them\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That since Frith is an all-powerful god and that his ways of controlling them will undoubtably lead to big trouble for all of the other rabbits, El-ahrairah would take Frith seriously and order the other rabbits to be more thoughtful with how much food they consume.\\
'''Instead:''' The egotystical rabbit brushes of Frith's warning and tells him that his people are the strongest in the world. A pissed Frith then gives all of the other animals a strong desire to devour rabbits, resulting in the the dangerous life a rabbit has to go through in general.

** During all this, Judy encounters Nick, a con-fox who gets discriminated against in an elephant ice cream salon. He notices that she racially profiled him and was ready to use fox mace, if not for his "son" [[spoiler:actually his partner-in-crime dressed in baby clothes]] being with him.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Nick to realize that trolling a cop is a bad idea, even if she is a prejudiced meter maid and technically he's committed no crimes with his hustles. Yes, it's not good that she profiled him, but also it's not good to be on the police radar.\\
'''Instead''': Nick pretends to lose his wallet and cons Judy into paying for the giant ice pop, and he attracts her attention with what he does with the ice and with the wood. Then he gloats to her about his "hustle" as well as how he technically broke no rules and has a permit. Judy subsequently finds incentive to blackmail him into helping her find the missing otter, since she deduces that he's committed felony tax evasion. Nick is forced to help, or go to jail.

** After being assigned as a meter maid in the busy Zootopia streets, a frustrated Judy Hopps gives chase to a weasel that robs a vegetable store. After she arrests him, the police chief chews her out for abandoning her post and causing collateral damage in the smaller zones for a dozen "onions".\\
'''You'd Expect''': Judy to apologetically point out that a civilian came to her asking for help, and ignoring them would have violated the police code of conduct. You'd also expect she would point out that none of the other cops alerted to the case were big enough to go into the smaller zones, and she cleaned up the damage that ensued, like saving a mole lady from a giant doughnut and keeping the buildings from falling.\\
'''Instead''': Judy focuses on the fact that she caught Duke Weaselton, that the bulbs aren't worthless which she knows as someone who grew up on a farm,[[spoiler: especially when she realizes their significance later]], and that she's deserving of more than parking duties. Judy's intransigence and impulsiveness doesn't endear her to the chief, who comes very close to firing her if not for Assistant Mayor Bellwether, and gives her an ultimatum about resigning.

** Officer Judy Hopps has arrived to the city, ready to make the world a better place. To her dismay, Chief Bogo has her assigned as a meter maid and makes it clear he doesn't care that she became TheAce at the Police Academy. Judy assumes the chief is prejudiced against her for being a tiny rabbit, as opposed to the giant animals on the police force, though she also promises to do her best. She pesters the chief about getting bigger projects.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Someone in the police department to tell a surprised, disappointed Judy that just because she's a top student doesn't mean she avoids the entry level work, and that she's doing parking duty due to being a newbie, not due to being a little rabbit. It's also a good way for her to know the layout of the city for when she gets harder work.\\
'''Instead''': No one bothers to tell Judy this, not even Clawhauser at the front desk. Bogo bluntly tells her that "life isn't about your dreams coming true" which only makes Judy insistent that he listen to her. She proceeds to get more frustrated about not being a real cop, and ticking off the chief by demanding harder work. The end result is that Judy gets in over her head when she volunteers for a missing otter case, and the chief says she has 48 hours to find him or she'll have to TurnInYourBadge.

** Later on, after [[spoiler:finding all the missing mammals within her "48 hour deadline" and arresting the Zootopia mayor]] Judy has to attend a press conference about the events and answer questions about the case.\\
'''You'd Expect''': For the police chief to give Judy some coaching, and for her to talk through potential answers, especially since [[spoiler:all the feral animals were predators and the wrong words could cause political tensions to erupt]].\\
'''Instead''': The police chief doesn't do this; [[spoiler: newly appointed Mayor Bellwether has reasons for making sure the conference goes wrong]]. ''Nick'' offers Judy a few words of advice right before the conference that only help with the first few questions. She then makes the mistake of saying [[spoiler:that all the animals caught were predators, and reveals a prejudice that only predators can go feral.]] This [[spoiler:ruins her budding friendship with Nick, causes an animal race war in Zootopia, sends her friend Clawhauser away from the police HQ's front desk, and drives Judy to TurnInYourBadge since she "broke" the world instead of fixing it.]]
