* ''VideoGame/Dota2:'' In the hours following ESL One Birmingham, OG's Tal "Fly" Aizik and Gustav "[=s4=]" Magnusson departed the team for Evil Geniuses. Left in pieces, the organization had to forfeit their slot for the China Supermajor, the last Major before The International 2018. The two remaining players Johan "[=N0tail=]" Sundstein (who was best friends with Fly, so this sudden decision devastated him a lot), Jesse "[=JerAx=]" Vainikka and coach Sebastien "[=Ceb/7ckngMad=]" Debs went to look for players to reassemble the team, resulting in Ceb recruiting Topias "Topson" Taavitsainen as their midlaner, and Anathan "ana" Pham returning to the team following a year-long absence from professional Dota 2, this time as their carry. [=N0tail=] returned to his signature hard support role, while Ceb, after years of coaching, returned to active play as their offlaner. No one could've predicted the run they had at the tournament, running through the entire Upper Bracket (after a successful group stage performance) all the way to the Grand Finals culminating in an amazing best of 5 series against PSG.LGD, winning the damn tournament after only being assembled for just three months. [[DarkHorseVictory Many thought that their run was a fluke.]] '''They were wrong.''' Come the following year's International, despite a rough season beforehand, OG, with the same roster, absolutely destroyed the competition, losing only ''5'' games in total from the group stage to the Grand Finals, crushing Team Liquid 3-1, not only becoming the first-ever two-time TI winners, but also back-to-back TI winners, having successfully defended their title. OG have now cemented themselves as the greatest Dota 2 team of all time, and it all started with the leaving of two key players.

That being said, everyone clearly saw that both teams ultimately benefited from it as a whole. EG have returned to form as one of the best teams in the world. OG have become immortalized in esports history.

** Momoko's best friend Kamen is probably the one who had the greatest indirect contribution to the murders. [[spoiler:After Hiro tried hitting on her, she spoke with Momoko, and tried to convince her to dump Hiro, but Momoko jumped to the conclusion that Kamen wanted to steal Hiro away from her (not knowing that Kamen was in love with ''her''). Hiro, undeterred, kept sending messages to Kamen's phone, and Momoko apparently got a look at the phone while Kamen was using the bathroom. Momoko then concluded that Hiro was cheating on her with Kamen, and planned on killing him and herself, while framing Momoko for the deaths]].

* Wrestling/ChrisHero was kicked out of Wrestling/{{Chikara}} in 2007 and all relating to him [[UnPerson was scrubbed clean from view]], but his actions continued to have an effect on the promotion regardless. It was his acquisition of the Eye Of Tyr from Dr. Cube of Wrestling/KaijuBigBattel that allowed for Wrestling/UltraMantisBlack's Order Of The Neo Solar Temple to gain power and the BDK after them, and [[Wrestling/HunterJohnston Delirious]] taking up the ways of a rudo after that, and [[Wrestling/{{Hallowicked}} the]] [[Wrestling/{{Frightmare}} rest]] of Incoherence going bad after that. The effects of manipulations also led to the rise of [[Wrestling/ShaneStorm STIGMA]] in his absence.

A 17-year-old kid named Eric Kulas offered his services, lying about his age and about having been "trained" by Killer Kowalski. Cue the Wrestling/MassTransitIncident. Axl likely had no clue what harm would come from his no-showing that night.

* In an interview, Wrestling/JimCornette said he was the first one in a booking meeting to suggest (jokingly) a double cross on Wrestling/BretHart in [[Wrestling/MontrealScrewjob Montreal]]. However in his version, Bret would have faced Wrestling/KenShamrock instead.
* In a similar situation, Wrestling/TonySchiavone has taken credit for jokingly suggesting that Wrestling/{{WCW}} put their World Heavyweight championship on Creator/DavidArquette.
* The signing of Wrestling/KurtAngle can be pointed to an indirect source to all of [[Wrestling/ImpactWrestling TNA]]'s current issues thanks to two things it caused. The most direct one was bringing in his then-wife Karen into the promotion. After she filed for divorce and they separated, she started dating Wrestling/JeffJarrett -- Dixie Carter found out, freaked, stripped Jarrett of all booking power and sent him home. Since most wrestlers saw Jarrett as the real boss, this allowed her to insert herself into a position of power backstage (she was only supposed to write the checks). The other one is the precedent it set; despite being by far and away the best signing TNA has ever made (with Wrestling/{{Christian}} and Wrestling/{{Sting}} being relative close seconds), Kurt's arrival allowed a floodgate of older wrestlers that entered the promotion and soaked up the spotlight from the younger talent people wanted to see. Eventually, this led to bringing in Wrestling/HulkHogan and Wrestling/EricBischoff, who took that same problem along with all the other ones that made TNA Wrestling/{{WCW}}-lite, and dialed them UpToEleven, ushering in the DorkAge that the company is ''still'' trying to recover from to this day.

* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': The Toughs accept a contract to deliver some food to what is referred to, in-story, as an 'UNS charity project'... Credomar. Due to the ship's AI interfering with a fuel delivery (which, in its defence, could have looked like an attack on the station if you squint right), unrest in the station boils up quickly and leads to the station having several new holes in the side. [[CaptainObvious It's a space station floating in the vacuum of space]]. Of course the fact that one of their own 'build-a-bot' projects takes the opportunity to take charge, save everyone it could, become King, and inadvertently throwing a wrench in the UNS's plans to take over through other means (mainly by influencing the rebellion had it happened ''when expected'', along with using the Toughs to "prop up a pro-annexation group" without actually telling them this) was the icing on the cake.
