She calls Vegeta a "cheap shot weakling" (he swatted her aside after he saved him) and says that she'll crush Caulifla and Kale as well, not even considering how powerful all of them are (oh, and never mind the fact she ''outright witnessed every other Saiyan on the battlefield proving that they are leaps and bounds stronger than what she's getting from Cabba'').\\

'''You'd Expect:''' One of them, particularly Frieza, to GRAB TOPPO AND KNOCK HIM OUT OF THE DAMN RING. He's weakened, and he made a mistake like that with Napapa early on (although Napapa was leagues weaker than a good portion of the fighters). He could blast him as well ... in a way that he did with Cabba and Jimizu.\\
'''Instead:''' Frieza continues to taunt Toppo, toying with him and planning to "gently" finish him off. Then ... Toppo stands up, with barely any strength left ... \\

Then he proceeds to tear open a new one for Frieza and 17 ...

* Quitela has two hidden fighters in the form of Damon and Gamisaras. Damon is a PintSizedPowerhouse insect who is so small he can lurk around the arena without anybody noticing, while Gamisaras is a chameleon-like fighter who uses his invisibility to stay hidden until the late part of the tournament\\
'''You'd Expect:''' With this knowledge, Quitella orders them to sneak attack opponents in the arena when they're busy focusing on other instances, in particular, when Kale was going in her berserk mode. Maybe they can catch opponents off guard and cause them to trip (similarly to how Gamisaras knocked Katopesla out). Damon could even toy with bigger and stronger fighters like Toppo and Magetta and even trick them into attacking each other, like jumping from one fighter to another. They could even attack Goku while he's charging the Spirit Bomb. It's even implied that Damon and probably Gamisaras attempted to ambush Jiren after he seemingly took Goku out, although it wouldn't have done them any good.\\
'''Or Better Yet:''' With 19 fighters and 4 Universes remaining, 13 minutes left, and neither Damon and Gamisaras having not been revealed to the other Universes' fighters, Universe 4 best course of action would have been to attempt a VictoryByEndurance, as it's the universe with the most fighters remaining at the end of the time limit will win the Tournament of Power. Undoubtedly, Universe 3 and Universe 11 will attempt to attack Universe 7 since they have the most fighters at this point. Chances are Universe 7, 3, and 11 will have loss more fighters in their battles and a possible a Universe or 2 being erased. All the remaining Universe 4 fighters would have to do is stay hidden. Damon, Gamisaras, and Shantza's tricks only work if their opponents don't have an understanding of their gimmicks. The best time for the Universe 4 fighters to make their move is near the very end of the time limit and only if another team looks like they are going to have more than 3 fighters left.\\
'''Instead:''' Quitella waits until they're his only members left (alongside Shantza, the last visible member) to actually send them out against Universe 7. Even though the two are CombatPragmatist fighters, the fact that a lot of points of distractions aren't present anymore gives Goku and co. time to actually focus on the sudden turn. Still, Gamisaras takes out Katopesla and almost takes out Vegeta, Gohan, and Android 18. Everyone, including the Pride Troopers and Zen'o, are wondering why everything is taking such a strange turn in the Tournament of Power. Nobody suspects anything.\\
'''You'd Then Expect:''' Gamisaras to keep on attacking without any suspicion, and with only a few universes remaining, the heroes think it's either accidental slip-ups, a stealth attack from Universe 3, or something unrelated to Universe 4.\\
'''Instead:''' Quitela does his "KEKEKE" laugh (which makes Beerus immediately suspect it's Universe 4) and OUTRIGHT hints that Gamisaras is invisible.\\
'''Result:''' Piccolo manages to knock out Gamisaras with ease after finding out his gimmick, and although Damon fools Piccolo at first, Goku and Android 17 manage to cripple Damon and cost Universe 4 the tournament.

'''Result:''' This gives Gamisaras from Universe 4 a chance to strike her and knock her out relatively early in the tournament. Talk about getting easily wasted by a hidden fighter who almost took her out in the anime too. It's just a good thing that Gamisaras also took out the Maiden Squadron as well.

'''You'd Expect:''' Knowing that Berserker Kale is not only a threat to the rest of the fighters, but also a threat to their own team as well, Saonel and Pirina from Universe 6 to stay out of the monster's way so she could continue her rampage to other Universe 7 fighters or the Pride Troopers.\\
'''Instead:''' The two Namekians LITERALLY stand in front of her and try to intervene ...\\
'''Result:''' Kale proceeds to reduce Universe 6's numbers even lower ... and Cabba even makes a similar mistake as well, but luckily Vegeta was there to save him.

* Frieza's brutal beatdown onto Jimizu has everyone spooked, including the Gods of Destruction (Helle, Beerus and even Champa). When Frost appears, however, Frieza "betrays" U7 and allies himself with Frost because of their hatred against the Saiyans, starting with beating Gohan. This instantly garners Champa's attention.\\

'''The Result:''' One by one, each of the multi-formed Tiens is sniped with ease, leaving an effective one-fourth of Tien's strength charging Hermila head-on and being unable to quickly knock him out of the ring, ultimately necessitating a StupidSacrifice after the events described below.

While one of the four clones got eliminated, Tien could leave the other three on the stage and ask Zeno for permission to allow them to continue fighting until all of the clones have been knocked off. If he refuses, that's that, but if he grants this request, Tien could have the three clones fuse back into one, leaving three-fourths of his full strength to continue fighting. It may or may not be granted, but it's worth a shot, and couldn't do any harm to try.\\

This ends up biting the Pride Troopers hard later, as the Pride Trooper division led by Kahseral set their focus on Caulifla and Kale as those two were already at a severe disadvantage after one of their members got knocked out earlier. Kale ends up transforming again ... but this time, she has control of her powers. Caulifla and Kale then send Kahseral and the other remaining Pride Troopers (except for Cocotte, who gets KO'd by Android 18 shortly after) flying, effectively reducing the Pride Troopers from 8 to 4.

'''The Result:''' Hit does the exact same thing as he did with Dypso, causing Kunshi to fly off the arena alone. After this, Toppo and Dyspo avoid further fighting and Jiren only fights those he thinks are threats, allowing Universe 11 to survive to near the end of the tournament.

'''You'd Expect:''' Kunshi K'nsi and Dypso to retreat and regroup with their remaining comrades in order to give them both a chance to recover.\\
'''Instead:''' Kunshi K'nsi decides to have Dypso retreat while he tries to perform a TakingYouWithMe on one of their opponents.\\
'''You'd Then Expect:''' Considering that earlier Kunshi K'nsi had witnessed Hit using a technique that caused Dypso to phase through him and almost get ringed out, Kunshi K'nsi would realize that a suicidal charge would be ineffective against Hit and would therefore choose Goku as the target of his final attack.\\
'''Instead:''' Kunshi K'nsi throws himself at Hit.\\
'''The Result:''' Hit does the exact same thing as he did with Dypso, causing Kunshi K'nsi to fly off the arena alone. After this, Toppo and Dyspo avoid further fighting and Jiren only fights those he thinks are threats, allowing Universe 11 to survive to near the end of the tournament.


'''Instead''': [[SmugSnake He completely glosses over what Vegito meant]], states that accepting Goku into his fusion means [[InsaneTrollLogic he's bearing the sins of the Gods that let a mortal like Goku become as strong as them]], ''starts crying over the 'pure act' of the 'sins' he bears,'' continues to flaunt his power in everyone's faces in spite of his body gradually becoming more and more unstable, and then has the audacity to forget '''he's no longer immortal''' when Trunks [[KarmicDeath cuts him down minutes later]]. Even when he turns into an EldritchAbomination because of this, since he didn't kill Vegito along with Goku and Vegeta, Goku ends up summoning Future Zen'o and erase him and the entire multiverse, putting an end to his Zero Mortal plan.

* In episode 66, the final battle, Vegito has impaled Zamasu after tricking him and stated to his face that he's a mortal due to his fusion with the body of Son Goku, meaning he's entirely killable. Not to mention said portion of his body is [[BodyHorror growing more unstable as the fight drags on]] as a blatant and obvious sign that things aren't as he thinks they are.\\

'''Even worse:''' You know that bit about how Future Trunks would be good for the Tournament of Power? The heroes would barely manage to muster up a roster of ten guys powerful and/or skilled enough to potentially be more than cannon fodder in the tournament, half of whom got much stronger than previously thought possible through training on the side. And then Buu starts taking his two month nap ''the night before the tournament'', forcing them to scramble for a new tenth guy. And then Beerus makes a throwaway remark about the heroes being at fault for destroying Frieza and his men, within earshot of [[IdiotHero Goku]].
