* In Literature/TheBible, Samson is one of the Judges of Israel. He's known for his amazing strength; not so well-known is that God has forbidden him to cut his hair. Anyway, he falls in love with a woman named Delilah, who is actually TheMole for the Philistines, the mortal enemies of Israel. At their urging, she asks him the secret of his strength. He lies to her, saying that binding him with fresh bowstrings will restrain him. However, when this is done and the Philistines attack, he breaks free with little effort.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Samson to take a hint and realize that his lover set him up, and deep-six her ASAP.\\
'''Instead''': He doesn't. He's still smart enough to not trust her, though, so when she asks him twice more how to bind him, he twice more lies to her, allowing him to escape the next two attacks.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Samson to '''really''' take a hint and figure out that Delilah is trying to get him killed, and deep-six her ASAP.\\
'''Instead''': He lets her guilt-trip him to the point where he tells her about his hair. She then has it cut off while he's asleep, rendering him helpless. The Philistines then capture him, blind him, and throw him in prison.

* Themepark/StitchesGreatEscape: Stitch just got teleported into a giant glass tube, and the guards are confused by how such a small creature can be a level 3 prisoner. Regulations require that Level 3 prisoners get a DNA scan. Gantu thinks it's overkill, but plays it by the book anyway.
'''You'd expect''': Gantu wouldn't leave the "overkill" at that and wouldn't give Stitch a chance to leave the tube.
'''Instead''' Gantu, apparently thinks the DNA-tracking cannons will be enough, raises the glass, and leaves to get some answers from the higher-ups. Stitch spits on the audience, prevously impossible because of the glass in the way, causing a short circuit, resulting in a blackout, which disables the tracking cannons and allows him to escape under cover of darkness.

* TobyKeith in "A Little Too Late," a top 5 country hit in 2006. In the video for the song, Keith plays a revenge-minded man who intends to commit the ultimate abuse: seal his ex-girlfriend (Krista Allen) in a small, windowless, bricked-in room inside his basement and leave her for dead. She has been tied to a chair, and stripped to a strapless white T-shirt and jeans.\\

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', Takanuva, Gali, and Pohatu are fighting giant bugs. Business as usual for them really, but Takanuva is worried that his regular [[HolyHandGrenade light powers]] won't be powerful enough. He does have a bunch of new toys, though!\\

'''For Added Stupidity''': The FCC statement said the fine was a "voluntary contribution to the U.S. Treasury". Everyone at said Treasury ''must'' have been [[FacePalm facepalming]] when they learned of the fine.

* [[WhatWereTheySellingAgain Can't remember what the commercial was about]] (probably car insurance or something), but it features a guy sitting in his car when he sees a shopping cart rolling towards it.\\
'''You'd Expect''': That if he were really so desperate to keep his precious car from getting scuffed up, he'd just get out and stop the cart. It ''is'' a shopping cart, not the boulder from ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.\\
'''Instead''': He hurriedly starts his car, shifts into reverse, and floors the gas, driving into a lightpole. Oops!

'''You'd Expect:''' They'd give Max Media the fine and they'd run off, happy as can be.
'''Instead:''' The FCC ended up making WNKY launch a local campaign about the EAS through their programs and the station's website, air additional emergency preparation public service announcements, and lease space on their tower to the Warren County Emergency Management agency and the City of Bowling Green for modernized warning equipment.
'''Also:''' The FCC statement said the fine was a "voluntary contribution to the U.S. Treasury". Everyone at said Treasury ''must'' have been [[FacePalm facepalming]] when they learned of the fine.

'''Instead:''' They decide to cut the goose open to try and get all the gold at once. The "autopsy" reveals the goose to be no different than any other, and the couple now have no more golden eggs.

'''You'd Expect''': The Emperor destroys the enemy army. Orbital fire, armies of [[SuperSoldier Space Marines]], [[OneManArmy doing it personally]]. You've got a lot of options when you have spaceships, troops, guns and enough PsychicPowers to make [[PhysicalGod the gods themselves]] get nervous.\\
