'''You'd Expect:''' Fanboy to not do so and just wait for Kyle to arrive.
'''Instead:''' He does erase the board, complete with a dance routine, just as Kyle arrives. As a result, he becomes the new board eraser-er, replacing him.
'''Then:''' Jealous over his role being stolen, Kyle gives Fanboy an eraser-er that literally erases anything.
'''You'd Expect:''' Fanboy to politely refuse.
'''Instead:''' He takes it, and tries it out on the wall. Mr. Mufflin is shocked at first and appears to punish him, but then gets excited due to "freeing everyone". Kyle is angry he's praised and not punished.

'''Instead:''' He is so horrified that he pleads Kyle to help him.
'''Then:''' Kyle's body gets erased, a backfire to Kyle's plan. He then asks Fanboy to help him out by giving him his wand.
'''You'd expect:''' Fanboy to use the non-erasing hand to easily grab the wand and give it to Kyle.
'''Instead:''' He tries to erase Kyle's head, even refusing to allow Chum Chum to help. When he finally gets the wand, he erases it due to seeing dirt on it and trying to erase it. He does the same to the other wand.

'''You'd Expect:''' That Kyle should excuse himself for a moment to take care of the boys himself, maybe getting them to leave so the readmittance can go on without a problem.\\
'''Instead:''' Kyle begins hesitating over the boys' entrance any minute, and even forces his former teacher Professor Flan to speed up which he refuses to do. Indeed, the boys enter, and mistake Flan for a brthday cake and escape with him, resulting in the admittance to be denied.

** In ''The Unbearable Blightness of Being'', [[MadScientist Dr. Blight]] constructs a machine that lets her switch bodies with [[PhysicalGod Gaia]] and uses Gaia's powers to wreck havoc.\\
'''You'd expect''': Blight would put her own body in a cage or something similar before the switch, so that Gaia will be trapped in Blight's body. Or, at the very least, inform her "assistant" [=MAL=] of the switch.\\
'''Instead''': She does none of these things, leaving Gaia able to fight the disasters with Blight's own technology, even getting the Planeteers and [=MAL=] on her side.

* There's a few in ''WesterAnimation/BeastWars.''
** "Dark Designs": After Megatron forcibly converts Rhinox into a Predacon, the Maximals break into their base to rescue him and in the ensuing battle, successfully take down the Predacons. Optimus orders Dinobot to grab Rhinox and for the Maximals to excape. Dinobot protests, pointing out that this is the Maximals' chance to take command of the base:
'''You'd expect;''' Optimus to fully consider this. During the converted Rhinox's coup, most of the Predacons were incapacitated, and those that weren't had been just taken out by his troops, who themselves are at minimal damage. (Optimus himself had just sliced of Megatron's arm, Skorponok was beaten by Dinobot, and Waspinator shot down by Cheetor).
'''Instead:''' He still orders a retreat.

** "Changing of the Guard": Depth Charge has just completely incapacitated Rampage, and is about to either kill him or cut out his spark. Silverbolt however, interferes to ask Depth Charge to aid the Maximals in their current operation.
'''You'd expect;''' Silverbolt to leave Depth Charge be. Rampage is currently THE most powerful Predacon under Megatron's command, (Possibly stronger than Megatron himself). Taking him out of the picture completely would be a an absolute advantage to the heroes. Added to this, Rampage landed on Quickstrike when he was knocked out, so nothing's stopping Depth Charge or Silverbolt from finishing him too.
'''Instead;'' Silverbolt, and then Rattrap, argue with Depth Charge, allowing Rampage and Quickstrike to sneak away.
'''Result;'' Depth Charge later considers Silverbolt's words, and does go to help... only to unintentionally cause the Maximals to lose the current mission. The Predacons gain the Maximal's technology, and retain Rampage and Quickstrike.

Quickstrike.
** "Nemesis Part 2": The Maximals have won the Beast Wars, captured Megatron, and are about to head home on their Autobot shuttle.\\
'''You'd expect:''' The Maximals to dismantle Megatron, (Since, as Waspinator proves, the transformer can live on as just a head), or place him in stasis lock, and also keep him in full view of the other Maximals inside the shuttle. Megatron has proven time and time again to be an extremely cunning opportunist and strategist.\\
'''Instead:''' They tie him, in one piece, TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE SHUTTLE, out of view of the Maximals.\\
'''Result:''' During the trip home, he eventually breaks free. Cue ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines.''

** Another ''Hey Arnold!'' episode, "Arnold Betrays Iggy": While taking homework to the "Cool Kid of the School" Iggy who was sick that day, Arnold finds out that Iggy has an embarrassing secret- he wears full-on bunny pajamas: cotton tail, bunny feet, and even big floppy ears. Iggy begs Arnold not to tell, and Arnold gives his word; however, Sid and Stinky find out due to really accurate conclusion-jumping and now Iggy is a laughing stock. Arnold feels guilty because Iggy thinks that he told and will never forgive him, even after Arnold profusely apologized and told him that he didn't spill.\\
