* 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''.

'''Even Worse:''' At no point in the second half of the game does Zant even ''attempt'' to stop the heroes from restoring the Mirror. [[OrcusOnHisThrone He just sits on his throne and awaits the inevitable confrontation.]]

'''Instead:''' Zant merely curses Link to permanently remain in Wolf form and nearly kills Midna by exposing her to light. He doesn't even bother taking the Fused Shadow Midna is wearing.\\


Added DiffLines:

*** Link and Midna have finally managed to fight their way through the Palace of Twilight and are about to battle Zant.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Zant, remembering that he took the Fused Shadows from them earlier, would actually '''use''' them. He knows what they are and what they can do, and while he doesn't have the complete set[[note]]Midna's helmet is the fourth Fused Shadow.[[/note]], the power boost he would get from just the three fragments would be more than enough to help him beat Link.\\
'''Instead:''' He doesn't bother using them and fights Link with his own power, even though Link has grown strong enough to actually challenge Zant. Thus, though he puts up a good fight, Link manages to defeat him.

** The HeroicMime Nanashi, the heroine Asahi, and their mentors all go on a mission to kill weak demons for food. Their hunting ground is literally right outside the gates of their hometown. A wandering horde of powerful demons turn up and kill everyone except for Asashi. Asahi only survives because Nanashi made a DealWithTheDevil to come back to life with increased power. Asahi, PluckyGirl that she is, quickly recovers from the tragedy and takes it upon herself to become a real hunter. She decides that the only way to be seen as a real hunter is to use her teacher's old demon summoning tool to recruit and train demons to fight for her.\\

'''Instead:''' Asahi decides to leave out the back entrance, without telling anyone except for the equally inexperienced Nanashi, whom she expects to have the same sentiment. The back alleyways are just like the park her teachers died in, in that there are demons everywhere and no guarantee that there won't be one that she can't handle. And no backup except for a fellow apprentice.

apprentice. Nanashi cannot stop her.
** Right after recruiting a bunch of level 5 at maximum demons (in a game where they can go up to 99), Asahi gets a distress message from her phone. It's not a universal broadcast message; it was meant for her veteran deceased teacher. A group of demon hunters are trapped inside a location infamous for its danger.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Asahi would run back to town, since she has to pass through it anyways to get to
the hunters, tell the other hunters about the message, and leave it to them.\\
'''Instead:''' Asahi says that she's a real hunter with real demons, and decides that there's no time to get help. So she and Nanashi run to the location without telling anyone else. Again, Nanashi cannot tell anyone about the endangered comrades, despite the danger they put themselves in and the fact that a pair of barely-experienced hunters would not be the help the hunters need. While Nanashi makes short work of one demon, its boss turns up (level 72 where all the recruitable demons are level 7, tops), and would have killed the protagonists, if the PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo hadn't saved them.

'''You'd Expect:''' For the Vault Hunters, (canonically there are six present in the room during this scene) all of whom are heavily-armed badasses with little reservations about killing people, to immediately pump Jack full of lead.\\
'''Instead:''' The Vaults Hunters do absolutely nothing while Jack [[spoiler: captures Lilith,]] and takes back the key, now able to charge it again. Then they continue to do nothing while he monologues, then more nothing as he has them teleported away.
