** In the second case of the first game. Master blackmailer Redd White has circumstantial information and evidence found about his blackmail schemes by Phoenix who is in his office accusing him of being the murderer. Just before, he has already proven that he can influence the chief prosecutor such that he can get out of testifying solely due to his blackmail and has already cleaned out all the truly incriminating evidence that Mia has found against him. '''You'd Expect:''' That Redd White would continue to use his blackmail to keep himself out of testifying in court since Phoenix doesn't have any actual decisive evidence pointing to him as the murderer and use the same to have Phoenix arrested.

'''Instead:''' Redd decides that since Phoenix refuses to stand down to his threats, he'll prove just how much better he is by browbeating the chief prosecutor into putting forward Phoenix as the real murderer despite all evidence found so far outright contradicting this and then personally testifying to this in a public court where he can't threaten to blackmail people into submission since blackmail itself is a serious offense. Phoenix, a rookie but still talented Defense Attorney easily rips apart Redd White's careless testimonies which he doesn't even try to match up with the established facts from yesterday's trial.

** During the flashback case that led to Phoenix being disbarred, the aforementioned forged diary page is given to him by Trucy, a girl he never met before, just before the trial starts. When the diary is brought up, Phoenix thinks of the page he has in his possession.\\ '''You'd Expect:''' Phoenix to take a second to check out the page or even ask for a recess, so he can discuss the item with his client.\\ '''Instead:''' Phoenix admits to himself that he ''has no clue what this page is or where it came from'' (having apparently forgotten about Trucy) and presents it, anyway, thinking he'll just wing it. Which leads to the fiasco of it turning out to be a forgery.

'''Instead:''' Once you get to the lower levels, he cracks up at the eviscerated corpses your team passed on their way to him, and then cackles at length about [[spoiler: slowly eviscerating the innocent lab techs those corpses used to be by hacking their own lab equipment]]. Cue your entire team demanding a bullet in his head, right before a representative from your client shows up with armed bodyguards to confirm the hit. Itís on you to decide to pull the trigger on Thorvald.

* ''[[Videogame/ShadowrunReturns Shadowrun: Dragonfall]]'': A team of shadowrunners are sent into a SCHERING Pharma AG lab to steal some valuable data. They botch the run, and all but one of them dies. The teamís decker, Thorvald Enstad, is being held in the building for questioning. The client that hired them tasks you and your team with killing him before the SCHERING corporation can pump any secrets out of him. It takes Thorvald no time at all to realize heís not being rescued and start fast-talking for his life. If you decide to be diplomatic this mission, you accept a bribe equal to what you were being paid for the job plus a sweet weapon in exchange for escorting Thorvald to safety.\\ '''Youíd Think:''' That, being a shadowrunner himself, Thorvald would understand the importance of keeping his damn mouth shut and not doing anything to upset the team of runners he just sweet-talked into not killing him.\\ '''Instead:''' Once you get to the lower levels, he cracks up at the eviscerated corpses your team passed on their way to him, and then cackles at length about [[spoiler: slowly eviscerating the innocent lab techs those corpses used to be by hacking their own lab equipment]].

* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer 3'': The forces of GDI have managed to finally lay siege to Temple Prime, HQ for the Brotherhood of Nod and assumed location of the Nod mastermind/Messianic figure, Kane. Nod has the nasty habit of outsmarting GDI at every turn; oftentimes twisting GDI's actions against the organization. GDI's leading general advises that GDI forces attempt to hold the siege until Nod forces surrender. GDI's Director demands that they use GDI's [[KillSat Ion Cannon]]. The general notes that Nod was storing weaponized GreenRocks with enormous explosive potential in the facility; and suggests they consult their Green Rock Expert. Turns out, he's been kidnapped by Nod.\\ '''You'd Expect''' The director to realize that these events might be related, and the risk of falling into yet another [[BatmanGambit scenario where Nod tricks GDI into doing something terrible]]; therefore erring on the side of caution with the DeathRay.\\ '''Instead''' The director orders the Ion Cannon be used, and Nod's Green Rock weapon explodes, causing a chain reaction with other Green Rocks in the area. This leads to a rather large explosion that more or less erases the Balkan Peninsula from existence; the director notes that the area was primarily Nod-controlled. It's also worth noting that the Director (Redmond Boyle, played magnificently sleazily by [[StarWars Billy Dee Williams]]) is implied to be an idiot, and later in the game, shows himself to be a fanatic of the degree of "So long as Nod is destroyed, do whatever action is necessary, even if it causes huge casualties on our side"

'''Instead''': The Foundation team proceeds to have their InfoDump on the ground. By the time Komaru points out that they're out in the open, it's too late. Monokumas surround them and slaughter the Foundation team. A Foundation member shoves Komaru aboard the helicopter, but its been taken over by a Monokuma, who proceeds to take Komaru to its masters, the ironically-named [[EnfantTerrible The Warriors of Hope]].
