Random Cop #1: Someone call the Avengers or somethin'—Simply put, a character is either prepared for a highly unlikely scenario or excessively prepared for a routine scenario. Nobody else thought it would happen, or thought it would happen at that moment, or thought it would be such a challenge. Only it does happen at that moment, and said character was prepared for it. He may even remind his friend[s] that I Warned You. Usually done in comedic works to humorous effect, but can also illustrate the foresight of a character in more serious works. Done poorly, it's an Ass Pull by the writer. If you always have on hand what it takes to MacGyver your way out of a tight spot, or have your large, impressive gun rack all sorted by varmint size, this trope is for you.
