** In one arc where Rosalyn babysits, and she has to prepare for a test the following day.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Knowing [[EnfantTerrible the previous times she has babysat Calvin]], for her to realize that this is a bad idea. She needs complete concentration so she can do well on her test and she would be risking another night from hell if she watched over Calvin.\\

'''Instead''': She comes over anyway with the promise that she'll have an easy night because Calvin's hiding from her.\\
'''So''': Calvin slips downstairs after his parents leave to greet Rosalyn.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Rosalyn to put her notes away, tell Calvin she needs to be left alone and go somewhere where she won't be disturbed. If anything, she can just put Calvin to bed early like she usually does since that usually shuts him up quick.\\
'''Instead''': She simply tells Calvin to be quiet and warns him not to touch her notes which she leaves strewn on the table. Calvin steals them and threatens to flush them down the toilet.

** The Federated Commonwealth is treating the son of the Captain-General of the Free Worlds League for severe leukemia. During the course of treatment, the boy unfortunately dies, which in the volatile political climate of the Inner Sphere could be a major diplomatic incident.
'''What You'd Expect:''' The Commonwealth would own up to the death and accord the boy's corpse with all due dignity, while also joining in the mourning and offering their sincere apologies and condolences, assuring Captain-General Marik that everything that could be done to save the boy's life was, thereby salvaging a bad situation.
'''What Happens Instead:''' Archon-Prince Victor Steiner-Davion panics, fearing that young Joshua's death will cause the FWL to cut off the flow of desperately-needed supplies for fighting off the Clan Invasion. He orders a coverup over the death and sends a doppelganger back to Atreus. Captain-General Thomas Marik [[spoiler: or, at least, [[{{Hypocrite}} a doppelganger in his image]]]] predictably is enraged at the deception and declares war on the Commonwealth, causing the FC to lose the vast majority of the territory it had won in the Fourth Succession War. This caused the sundering of the Commonwealth into two states, the rump Federated Commonwealth (the Federated Suns) and the Lyran Alliance, the latter led by Victor's unstable sister, Katherine. This directly set the stage for the FedCom Civil War, which destroyed everything that Victor's father, MagnificentBastard supreme Hanse Davion, had worked and fought for over 40 years.
'''EVEN WORSE:" Sun-Tzu Liao, the Chancellor of the Cappellan Confederation, was able to renew diplomatic ties with the FWL over the incident and give a gigantic "F-you" to Victor. The Cappellan Confederation had been the state that suffered the most at the hands of the Suns during the Fourth Succession War, and were able to regain a significant portion of territory, the remainder becoming a chaotic no-man's land.

'''EVEN WORSE THAN THAT:''' That chaotic no-man's land became a breeding ground for the [[ChurchMilitant Word of Blake]] that within a decade would launch the Jihad, the most destructive and deadly conflict the Inner Sphere had seen since the First Succession War almost two hundred years earlier. Vic, next time a VIP's kid croaks, just tell the flippin' truth, m'kay?

* Creator/LabZeroGames, the creators of VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}, like a fan-made character named Juju by a fan named Ceemcneil so they contact Juju's creator that they might buy the rights of Juju from him and make her a DLC character in exchange for Ceemcneil to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement to not discuss the deal for the time being. \\
'''You'd Expect:''' Ceemcneil listen to Lab Zero Games and honor the NDA and not talk about Juju is coming to Skullgirls until notice.\\
'''Instead:''' Hours after signing the NDA, Ceemcneil in his arrogance began telling fans everywhere about the deal that his character Juju is coming to Skullgirls, including in the same forums the developers visit! Realizing that Ceemcneil could not be trusted and was difficult to work with, Lab Zero Games drop any plans of making Juju canon in Skullgirls including retconning any hint of her existence.

'''You'd Expect''': After the first few times the plan fails, the Philistines would either come to the conclusion that this is actually a kinky sex thing Samson and Delilah are into, or just kill Samson in his sleep. Samson's power is super-strength, not invulnerability, so if they can get into his bedroom every night this should be an obvious change of plan.\\
'''Instead''': They keep doing the same thing over and over again, and each time it fails. Eventually Delilah finds out the secret and they're able to capture him, but then...\\
