** 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.\\

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.

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.

Franklin calls Lamar out for being incredibly naive and dumb, which nearly gets him killed every time and that he always has to come in to save him from himself.



'''Instead''': He brags about where his newfound fame is going to get him right to Michael's face, and drops a hint that it's all because of his (completely ineffectual) sessions with Michael. Mike gets understandably pissed, chases after Friedlander, and kills him.

Floyd eventually snaps after seeing his girlfriend get upset at the whole situation and he pulls a gun on Trevor, but Trevor kills him and the girlfriend off screen with the results only showing a ton of blood on the windows and on Trevor.

** In the season 2 episode ''Ice Station Santa'', One of Santa's elves gets possessed by a demon that was sent to him from Lower Manitoba and Santa has instructions for an exorcism to remove the demon.
'''You'd Expect:''' Santa would follow the directions and do the exorcism himself to free the possessed elf without having to cause too much panic.
'''Instead:''' Santa starts shooting at all of the elves and hides in his office which causes everybody to think he's possessed.
'''Then:''' Sam & Max enter his office through his chimney while trying to figure out how to break the possession.
'''You'd expect:''' Santa would let the two of them know that he isn't the one possessed and give them all the details on what they have to do.
'''Instead:''' He shoots at them like everybody else forcing them to continue the process after managing to take the exorcism instructions from under him.
'''Then:''' After Sam & Max release the demon from the elf (while still thinking it was Santa who was possessed), Santa asks if they remembered to read the back of the instructions even though he never talked to them about it before. Santa is then chased by the demon until Sam & Max use the spirits of Christmas to defeat the demon and turn it into Jello.
'''You'd expect:''' Santa would either lock the Jello up, throw it in the trash, or some other means of getting rid of it so that the demon can't hurt anybody else.
'''Instead:''' He eats the jello.
'''Result:''' Santa really does get possessed by the demon and Sam & Max are forced to trap him in a box and send him to hell.

* ''[[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: hacking the robotic lab equipment to slowly eviscerate the innocent lab techs those corpses used to be while they were still alive]]. 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.
