* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', Fry gets infested by worms that make him smarter, stronger, and brave enough to tell Leela he loves her, which ought to lead to a discretion shot.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' that he just leave the worms in, because they are the best thing that has ever happened to him.\\
'''Instead:''' Under a contrived notion that since the worms are rebuilding him they are [[CallBack essentially taking the original him away from Leela,]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext he goes inside his own body]] and drives the worms out in order to prove to himself that Leela would love him without the worms. He's wrong.
** '''You'd expect:''' that Leela finally gets a clue that Fry is exactly the kind of person she's holding out for.\\
'''Instead:''' the next episode/movie happens, [[StatusQuoIsGod and she's back to treating Fry]] [[StrictlyFormula like her idiot kid brother.]]
** A guy Leela is dating uses his city connections to sweep her off her feet, including reserving a skating rink for the two of them. A bus full of orphans shows up, and the kids are disheartened to find the rink closed to them. Leela says, "Ah, why don't we let them skate with us?"\\
'''You'd Expect:''' He'd say, "Sure, why not." Even if didn't have the same sympathy for the kids that Leela had, it should've at least occurred to him that doing something so nice for them would've made bedding her a slam dunk.\\
'''Instead:''' Being the {{Jerkass}} that he is, he tells them to beat it and "Come back when you have connections." Not surprisingly, Leela [[NiceToTheWaiter slaps him and dumps him on the spot.]]
** "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back": Leela has invited her former co-workers from the cryogenics lab for a game of poker, and Bender uses X-ray glasses to clean everybody.\\
'''You'd Think:''' Bender would not even let on that he had some way of cheating.\\
'''Instead:''' He warns one of them about a worm in his stomach, which tips him off that Bender was using X-ray glasses. The cryogenics lab people chase Bender into Hermes' office and trash the place, leading to the events of the rest of the episode.

** "Arnold's Valentine": Helga decides to ask Arnold out on Valentine's Day. This being [[{{Tsundere}} Helga]], she can't go through with it. That is until Arnold's pen pal, Cecile writes him a letter. She opens up the letter and adds that "she" will be coming to town on Valentine's Day and wants to meet up with Arnold at Chez Paris. Helga changes up her look by getting a haircut, putting on a new outfit ([[PaperThinDisguise that's still in a pink color scheme and includes a bow in her hair]]) and wearing makeup and is ready to finally show Arnold what he's been missing.\\
Arnold shows up at the restaurant and notices that something is off about "Cecile". She has an American accent despite being born and raised in France, she mispronounces French words, she looks nothing like the picture he received in the letter, and contradicts everything that was written. He even says that he feels like he knows her already.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Arnold to figure out that "Cecile" is really Helga, considering how instantly recognizable Helga is and how bad her disguise is. She even starts yelling at him in the end, which should have tipped him off even if the disguise fooled him.\\
'''Instead''': Nope. He buys it. And when the jig is up, he still has to ask who she is. She of course refuses to tell him, leaving him forever wondering who this mystery girl was.\\
'''Bonus Idiocy''': At the end of the episode, the real Cecile coincidentally decided to visit Arnold on Valentine's Day and ends up arriving at the restaurant. He asks who she is, and when she tells him, he says "But you're not Cecile, ''she's'' Cecile." This is despite the fact that A) she actually has a French accent and B) ''It's the same girl as the one in the picture!'' Come on, Arnold.

** In ''Nega-Timmy'', Mr. and Mrs. Turner's neglectful and careless parenting methods finally catch up to them and they become the subjects of a Television show called, ''The Bad Parent Hunter''. Upset about being humiliated in front of a Nationwide audience, they decide from then on to be GoodParents. Unfortunately their definition of this trope is more strict and overbearing, which Timmy naturally does not take a liking to.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Timmy to just wish that his parents would stop being so demanding.\\
'''Instead:''' He wishes that he would always do the opposite of whatever his parents say. It works well for a while, but then his parents tell him to "be good" and he turns into an evil Mr. Hyde esque version of himself.

** During the early parts of the series, the Turtles discover that Shredder has mooks that can go invisible, and [[BadassBookworm Donatello]] is quickly able to make some infared goggles that allow the Turtles to see them. Later in the series, the turtles and Splinter [[StormingTheCastle attack Shredder's HQ]].\\
'''You'd Expect''': The heroes to bring the goggles along, in case they encounter the mooks in question, which they probably will, given the place they're attacking.\\
'''Instead''': They don't, and do encounter the mooks, who give them quite a bit of trouble until Leonardo comes up with the idea of weaponising a nearby fire extinguisher.
** Stockman in "Return to New York Part 3". He battles the Turtles and the Shredder with an exosuit, and doesn't go down easily.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Stockman to continue battling them, and make speeches that doesn't reveal his secret of how he keeps going.\\
'''Instead''': He openly admitted the reason why he doesn't go down easily: the exosuit's limbs each have a backup power supply. Donatello gets the suit's gatling gun arm and blasts him out of the sky with it.

'''So Now You'd expect:''' That Karai would accept Leo help, after all she of all people, should known that going after Shredder alone is a bad idea. Something that Leo points out.\\

'''Instead:''' Stinky says "I ain't signing it, you can find yourself another fool," without explaining anything. While Helga does say "What an idiot", this is because she is likely thinking "It's a million dollar contract, of ''course'' you sign it."
