** In the finale of ''Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm'' Kerrigan breaks into Mengsk's inner sanctum and finds him strangely confident and holding something akin to a detonator in his hand. Granted, it was diguised as a lighter, but still.\\

'''Even Worse:''' [=MegaMan=] has handled [=HeatData=] before. It was a PlotCoupon late in the second game. A [=MrProg=] was using it to supply heat to a barbecue grill. In fact, he even explained as he was handing it over that [=MrProgs=] not explicitly specialized to resist [=HeatData=]'s extreme heat output would burn up if they tried to install it.

* After defeating the Sorceress in VideoGame/SpyroYearOfTheDragon, you find [[MoneyDearBoy Moneybags]] just standing out in the open. Turns out he found a dragon egg and plans to sell it in Avalar.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Moneybags would say nothing to Spyro, go into one of the nearby portals so Spyro can't find him, and then sneak back to Avalar to do the dirty deed.\\
'''Instead:''' He blurts out to Spyro about it, runs around in circles with an enraged dragon on his paws, and ''doesn't'' go into a portal until all the gems he swindled from Spyro are back in his clutches and the egg is given to him.



** The UED forces find on Tarsonis an abandoned Psi Disrupter build by the confederates. This device is able to break the zerg's psychic link, preventing the Overmind and its cerebrates to control zergs. Stukov says that it's a great tool for the UED mission (to ensalve the Overmind) while Duran prefer to destroy it, since "If it falls in Mengsk's hands, it could control the zerg as well in combination with the psi emitters".\\

'''Instead''' he listens to Duran, and orders the Psi Disrupter to be destroyed.

Added DiffLines:

** Following her defeat after the final battle, Gruntilda is left crushed under a large boulder, still alive but unable to escape herself.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Since said boulder is located literally ''right up from Banjo's house,'' that he and Kazooie would find some way to permanently keep said boulder in place and seal that witch away forever. Also that they would dissuade, or fight off Klungo to prevent him from aiding Grunty's escape.\\
'''Instead''': They leave the boulder and Klungo alone. For two years. During this time Grunty nearly escapes once, (which ''should'' have prompted the heroes to take some kind of action) and finally, her sisters are able to enable her escape, setting up the entire plot for the sequel.\\

Added DiffLines:

** At the beginning of the game, Gruntilda kidnaps Tooty.\\
'''You'd Expect''': That after locking Tooty up, Gruntilda would immediately either; A: Lock up her lair against any intruders, specifically Banjo and Kazooie, B: Given her vast magical power, she would nuke Banjo and Kazooie's house with them inside it before they could leave, (Something she later flat out does in ''VideoGame/BanjoTooie), right after grabbing Tooty'' or C. Simply confront the duo prior to them completing the training courses Spiral Mountain, where they lack the experience and several critical moves that would be needed for them to even begin to be considered a threat to her. Doing any one of these would allow her plans to go off unimpeded.\\
'''Instead''': She plays OrcusOnHisThrone for the entirety of the game, never directly dealing with them. This allows them to not only rescue Tooty, but gain the abilities and experience needed to defeat her.\\

'''Instead''' He wishes for Hyrule to be rendered LostForever. Yeah, nothing else, just washing away this perfectly nice kingdom for no real reason, while Link and Tetra (still barely able to stand on their feet), have to battle Ganondorf, who now suffers a VillainousBreakdown, since his plans are derailed. Even made worse by the fact that, after the battle is won, Ganondorf dead and Link visibly wounded, the king walks up to the kids and ''apologizes that they've got nothing left except to just carry on with the hope they've got now''. When he, technically, could have given them Hyrule. Like the goddesses ''intended'' him to. It was the whole freakin' purpose his soul was still around. No wonder that the ''The King of Hyrule is a Jerk'' comics are so popular...

* In ''VideoGame/TheSimpsonsHitAndRun'', Bart finds a fully-working laser gun to use as proof to Krusty that [[spoiler: Kang and Kodos are planning to make cola-crazed citizens destroy each other]].\\
'''You'd Expect''': Bart to take the laser gun straight to Krusty.\\
'''Instead''': Bart takes the laser gun to Principal Skinner, a person who cannot trust Bart with anything, who confiscates the gun from him because of Springfield Elementary's ban on laser guns ''despite being outside of school grounds''.
