** Takato leading to Guilmon's forced evolution into Megidramon, to begin with. Takato is a [[AscendedFanboy complete fanboy]] of the ''Digimon Adventure'' anime, having followed it faithfully, with Guilmon's design being based on Agumon's.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Him to remember when ''Agumon'' was forced into evolving into a stronger form when he really wasn't ready for it and how that always turned out [[GoneHorriblyRight horribly right]].\\
'''Instead:''' Takato performs the same mistake, the same, irrational demand and Guilmon turns into the abovementioned Megidramon, whose mere ''existence'' was beginning to destroy the digital world. He did the same mistake, only with much, ''much'' more dire consequences.

'''You'd Expect:''' That the {{badass}} assassin who made a name for himself killing people with GameBreaker superpowers would pay attention to his ally's warnings, remember that the guy he's up against can manipulate what he sees, and generally try to maintain a healthy level of skepticism when he comes to the top of the building and sees Yin sitting in an empty room, alone and unguarded.\\

* ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'':
** Ippo's next opponent is Sawamura, an expert counter-puncher, who has announced that he has developed a counter to Ippo's signature move, the dempsey roll. Ippo's gym mate Itagaki figures out how the counter is pulled off and asks Vorg to demonstrate it in a spar. Vorg, a merely competent counter-puncher, knocks Ippo unconscious on his first attempt using the counter. Ippo spends the remaining time before his match developing a counter-counter move, and is warned to use it as a last resort due to the strain it puts on his body.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Ippo to wear down his opponent as best he can, before surprising a tired Sawamura with the modified dempsey roll.\\
'''Instead:''' After a strong opening 3 rounds demonstrating that with patience and concentration he has the skill to beat Sawamura, Ippo attempts to use the unmodified dempsey roll on the expert counter-puncher who has announced he can easily counter the dempsey roll using a counter that Ippo has experienced first-hand and spent months preparing for.\\
'''Result:''' Ippo is knocked unconscious near the end of round 4, only stays up by a miracle, and spends the rest of the fight struggling to stay awake.

** And in the leadup to the following, Ange declares in private to her mother the night before the coronation that she wishes to take care of the Norma problem once and for all by getting rid of them. The thing is, she herself happens to be one of them, and her parents have kept it a secret even from her.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Her mother, who loved her in spite of her being a Norma, to tell her the truth, and to be more compassionate towards them. After all, Ange also just said she desires a challenge and wishes to change the status quo, and what better way to challenge herself than to find a way for Norma and everyone else to coexist in peace and without discrimination?\\
'''Instead:''' Her mother continues to stay silent, waiting perhaps for the ceremony to complete before telling her daughter. Before that can even happen, her older brother, Julio, outs her in public and orders her to be detained. Her mother attempts to evacuate her to safety only for them to be surrounded. Ange, still incognizant of the matter, thinking this is all a cruel joke and feeling insulted that a soldier would raise arms against a princess, goes on the offense, leading the soldier to open fire on her.\\
'''The Result:''' Her mother attempts to shield Ange with her mana. Ange, [[BlessedWithSuck being a Norma]], inadvertently negates the shield, causing the bullet to fatally wound her mother. She is immediately pulled away, [[YouAreNumberSix assigned a number]], escorted to a prison colony where other Norma are kept, humiliatingly strip-searched, and treated along with the rest of the Norma as expendables in combat. With the only inference that she is a Norma that she fails to conjure mana when asked to demonstrate after she is already stuck in the colony, she is caught in a state of denial, and during her first mission, the above case of shell shock that results in three of her comrades getting killed.

* ''Anime/BlueExorcist'': Late in the story, we see the story of how protagonist Rin Okamura and his twin brother Yukio, the halfbreed sons of Satan, came to be. [[spoiler: The boys' mother somehow comes to understand that not all Demons are evil. Satan kills many men in an effort to take form and experience life, but when he approaches her for the same cause, she opens herself willingly. They spend time together, fall in love, dream about a world where Humans and Demons can live together in peace, and make some babies. She dies soon after the birth, and the twins are adopted and raised by a priest.]]\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Satan, having recognized that his children are the key to breaking down the walls between the Human World and the Demon World, to come to them as carefully and gingerly as possible, befriend them, and explain to them his [[spoiler: and their mother's]] dream.\\
'''Instead:''' He doesn't even attempt to appear to either of them until the plot begins when both are 15. He manifests a horrifying Hell Gate, burns several of the priests whom the boys grew up with from the inside out, possesses their loving foster father, and immediately begins [[LaughingMad cackling]] and ranting about invading the Human World and destroying everything. The boys' father is forced to perform a [[HeroicSacrifice Heroic Sacrifice]] to stop Satan from taking Rin to the Demon World, giving both boys nothing but reason to despise him.\\
'''Even Worse:''' The next time he appears [[spoiler: (near the end of the first anime series), Satan *still* makes zero effort whatsoever to suggest he desires anything but the utter destruction or subjugation of all humanity, even though he possesses his son Yukio and could easily say anything at all to suggest to anyone that he's not what he seems. He makes good on his destructive threats immediately, killing many priests and going after the twins' friends and colleagues with full intent to kill. He spends exactly one seconds-long scene musing privately about achieving the dream he shared with the twins' mother.]]\\
'''The Result:''': The twins ultimately [[spoiler: power up together and [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice wreck Satan's shit]]. In his last moments, he still has the gall to express his feelings of betrayal to his sons even though he's given them every reason to abhor him.]]\\

* ''WhatAnIdiot/SwordArtOnline''



* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'':
** Kirito is a beta tester, and as a result, knows about in-game content before everyone else does. However, due to the fact that there is a general dislike of beta testers among non-beta testers (which, in of itself would also qualify for an entry on this page, since only ONE person has to clear the game in order for everyone to escape, and it's not mentioned if the person who clears the game gets a prize other than bragging rights), he must keep this a secret.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Kirito to share his information, but act as if it was a rumor/leak that he read about on the internet before the game, and convince as many people as possible that they should do as the rumor/leak says.\\
'''Or:''' For Kirito to find some people who do not have a dislike of beta testers, reveal that he is a beta tester to them, and share what he knows, and either have them use that info to decide what actions to take (if they happen to be a leader), or have them propose the idea, and then second the idea that they "proposed" (if they aren't a leader).\\
'''Instead:''' Kirito chooses to keep this fact a secret, causing quite a few people to be killed as a result, [[spoiler: including one of his love interests, Sachi]].
** [[spoiler: Kirito correctly deduced that Heathcliff was Kayaba in disguise. Kayaba challenged Kirito to a one-on-one duel. The deal was that the game would end 25 floors early if Kirito manages to defeat him.]]\\
'''You'd Expect:''' [[spoiler: Kirito to decline the offer, play it safe and not die pointlessly. The fronliners need all the help they can get in future possible fights and would have lost a valuable asset if he loses. He lost the first duel. Kirito is up against the game admin after all and he was even informed about system assist from Kayaba himself. [[VillainsNeverLie There is absolutely no reason for Kayaba to play fair or keep his promise.]]]]\\
'''Instead:''' [[spoiler:Kirito agreed and thought that he could solo the final boss. He did, in fact, died, only to be saved by a DeusExMachina.]]
** [[spoiler:Sugou was performing an experiment to use ALO as a means of mind control and planned to be wedded with a comatose Asuna.]]\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Sugou to keep his mouth shut and masquerade as a harmless friend of the Yuuki family. Even if things go south he can more likely avoid criminal charges had he stayed an anonymous mastermind.\\
'''Instead:''' [[CardCarryingVillain He]] [[EvilGloating made sure that Kirito and Asuna knew]] that [[SmugSnake he was evil]].\\
'''Result:''' He starts off the entire ALO story arc where Kirito eventually manages to defeat him.
** Sugou has admin access to ALO.\\
'''You'd Think:''' Sugou would program the game so that Asuna cannot leave her cage or that he is the only one who can unlock it.\\
'''Instead:''' He uses keypads for the cage and in-game items (key cards) for administrator access. As a result, [[spoiler: Asuna was able to leave her cage for a short time and snatched the keycard, then passed it to Kirito down below.]]
** Sugou may have come close to achieving his goals, but he makes one decision that ultimately dooms him. In the second to last episode of the first season, The Gilded Hero, Sugou/Oberon shows up just as Kirito is about to save Asuna. He spams his Game Master status by pinning Kirito to the ground with gravity-based magic, chaining-up Asuna, and finally, as Kirito tries to get up, he kicks him onto the ground, telling him to "stay down and grovel like a good little doggy". He then stabs Kirito through his back and spine with Kirito's own sword. Sugou/Oberon is about to change the pain absorber, which, once it drops bellow level 3, starts affecting a user's body in the real world.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Given that he's in full control of the situation and knows how the pain absorber works, that Sugou/Oberon would be smart and immediately set the pain absorber from level 10 to below level 3 -- maybe even to level 0 -- on Kirito to ensure that he would no longer be a thorn in his side in either world (the digital and real worlds), before he goes and rapes Asuna. And since Oberon stabbed Kirito through his spine, in addition to breaking Kirito's back and spinal nerves, seeing Asuna in pain as Oberon assaults and rapes her would potentially inflict even more pain and stress on Kirito and kill him IRL (in real life). Sugou can then get away with raping Asuna in the real world, wipe her memories of Kirito and of what happened to Asuna herself, force her into marrying him, take over RCT Progress Inc., avoid being arrested by the police, and get off scot-free and continue experimenting on the other former SAO players with no one to stop him and achieve his blasphemous goal of being the god of ALO. TheBadGuyWins. [[DownerEnding The end]]. (Granted, there’s Kayaba’s digital spirit hanging around, but Sugou wouldn’t have known that, and plus, with Kirito dead, it’s unlikely there’s anything Kayaba’s spirit could do to stop Sugou/Oberon by himself.)\\
'''Instead:''' [[BondVillainStupidity Being the overconfident dastard that he is]], Sugou/Oberon decides to set the pain absorber to level 8, and tells Kirito that he plans to gradually lower it to increase the pain to -- in his own words -- "give [him] something to look forward to," once he's done assaulting Asuna. He also adds that once it drops below level 3, it starts affecting a user's body in the real world. While in other scenarios it wouldn’t be quite as stupid of a decision, not dropping it to 0 comes back to haunt Oberon in the end. Because Kirito isn’t completely dead, he eventually gets a HeroicSecondWind from [[EveryoneHasStandards Kayaba's spirit]] (a DeusExMachina) and is lent his admin status from him. Kirito then reduces Oberon's in-game level status to level 1, and after testing out the system command to summon a weapon, Kirito then sets Oberon's pain absorber level ''from level 8 to level 0 on Oberon himself'', painfully kills him, and saves Asuna.\\
'''The Result:''' Sugou [[WoundThatWillNotHeal suffers some pretty bad phantom injuries in real life and loses some vision in his right eye]] (as Oberon, his avatar, was stabbed in the eye when he was killed by Kirito). And when Sugou tries to kill Kirito in the real world in the hospital parking lot, he ends up being overpowered by Kirito, and Sugou faints after screaming and urinating in his pants in fear when the knife he was using is held to his throat by Kirito, leading to his eventual arrest.
