** Episode 8 has the Camp Paramount support team develop a new BFG for the Rangers.\\
'''You'd Expect''': That they'd warn people to stay out of the testing range for the new weapon.\\
'''Instead''': [[NoOSHACompliance They don't]]; BC nearly gets vaporized when he inadvertently walks into the line of fire.

* In ''Fanfic/MastermindStrategistForHire'', the Blue Dogs gang meet up with [[VillainProtagonist Izuku/Mastermind]], wanting a plan to rob Okane Bank from him.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The Blue Dogs pay Izuku's fee for the plan.\\
'''Instead:''' The gang instead holds Izuku at gunpoint in an attempt to get the plans to rob Okane Bank for free. Bear in mind this was one month after he had [[HostageSituation threatened to release plans to kill the top 50 Pro Heroes in Japan if he is captured or killed]], and had #8 Hero Wash killed in protective custody to show he was serious.\\
'''Result:''' Immediately after giving the Blue Dogs their plans, Izuku creates and sells plans to kill each member to their enemies. [[KarmicDeath All four of them end up killed as a result.]]


'''You'd Expect:''' Chrysalis would [[spoiler:reveal to everypony her now broken partnership with Jewelius and that he helped her to infiltrate Canterlot as well as steal Cadance's identity. Even if he calls her a liar, doing that would help her to deny him whatever he seeks to gain out of betraying her]].\\

'''You'd Expect:''' Celestia would understand she needs to assert herself, sternly stop her nephew from making biased accusations, and start properly clearing things up for everypony.\\
'''Instead:''' Celestia takes no action to stop her nephew from speaking even when he's addressing the ponies in Canterlot's streets. She only asks him to calm himself while letting her nervousness show, and says that everything would have been resolved differently if Twilight -- the hero who just stopped the Changelings -- had just kept a cool head and brought evidence to back up her accusations.[[note]]Jewelius overrules this argument by pointing out that before that, Celestia herself chose not to postpone the wedding and first deal with the looming threat of unknown attackers she was warned about.[[/note]] [[NotHelpingYourCase She makes it worse for herself and the other heroes]] by telling them to run right after Jewelius has promised in his speech to correct their mistakes, making them look as guilty as he says they are. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero This leads to them all being imprisoned and scorned on by everypony, while Jewelius makes himself Equestria's king.]]

This backfires horribly, as the escape attempt fails and makes them look as guilty as he Jewelius says they are.

* In ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/14750820/chapters/34105899 To Intervene]]'', Tony Stark spends months negotiating with the US government to hand over leadership and liability of the Avengers to the Defense Intelligence Agency, making a point to send emails to the Avengers any time there's any change in the negotiations.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The other Avengers to keep up to date on what's happening since it has a significant impact on their operations.\\
'''Instead:''' Steve just gives an offhand reply thanking Tony for the update without ever reading the emails.\\
'''The Result:''' The Avengers are completely unprepared when contacted by the DIA for the expected meet and greet.\\
'''Even Worse:''' Steve tries to blame Tony for not keeping him updated, and when it's proven Steve was replying to emails without reading them, he tries to claim that Tony should've given them a heads up if it was important, ignoring that's ''exactly what said emails were doing''.
** Before this, Tony retires from the Avengers and eventually decides to hold a press conference detailing that he's stepped down from the Avengers entirely and plans to have no more dealings with them outside end of the world scenarios.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Steve to offer no comment on it since Tony's been officially retired from the Avengers for months.\\
'''Instead:''' He furiously calls up Tony and lambasts him for talking to the press without clearing it with him first and demands to know what Tony is thinking retiring from the Avengers.\\
'''The Result:''' Steve solidifies Tony's decision to wash his hands of the Avengers and further proves to him that none of them, barring Vision was ever actually his friend.

** In ''All the Laughs We Had in the Past'', Chat Noir gets into a massive argument with Ladybug, blaming her for Chloe's akumatization into Miracle Queen and all the recent tension stemming from his [[DoggedNiceGuy constant harassment of her]]. Ladybug and the other heroes [[WhatTheHellHero call him out]] on his SkewedPriorities, and he splits off from them. Miracle Queen then vanishes, and he is approached by a Ladybug who is acting completely different, abruptly expressing interest in him.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Chat Noir to find her abrupt personality flip strange, or to acknowledge that they are currently in the middle of dealing with an akuma with unknown powers and that everything about this is completely unlike his partner.\\
'''Instead:''' He happily assumes that Ladybug has finally given in to all his advances and ditched the fight and her responsibilities to apologize and make out with him.\\
'''As a Result:''' They kiss, and Miracle Queen uses his distraction to [[spoiler:steal his ring, exposing his SecretIdentity and helping the Black Cat Miraculous end up in Hawkmoth's hands]].


'''Instead:''' She tracks her down at the museum, accuses her of 'avoiding her call' despite how Marinette gave her a very clear answer about what she was doing, and attempts to grab her wrist and ''drag her'' off to see Adrien over her protests.

'''Later:''' Alya stages an 'emergency meeting' at Marinette's house, ''without'' letting Marinette know she or any of the other girls were coming, in order to propose another ZanyScheme to sabotage Adrien's outing with Kagami. Again, Marinette insists that she is not interested, and declares outright that she's given up on Adrien and is dating Luka after he [[LoveConfession confessed to her]].\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Alya to respect her friend's choices, even if she's disappointed that she wasn't able to help her hook up with Adrien after all.\\
'''Instead:''' She accuses Marinette of only agreeing to date Luka in order to [[OperationJealousy make Adrien jealous]].\\
'''As a Result:''' Marinette is so hurt by Alya implying she's that [[ManipulativeBitch manipulative]] and frustrated by her stubborn refusal to just ''listen'' to her that she decides they should take a break from each other over the summer.\\
'''Now You'd Expect:''' For Alya to take the hint.\\
'''Instead:''' Alya immediately decides to try staging an OperationJealousy of her own by trying to hook Lila up with Adrien... without letting Lila in on the OperationJealousy part. Because Lila is just [[BitchInSheepsClothing sweet enough]] that she'd agree to this sort of thing, so there's no reason to ask if she's okay with it, right? Like, say, making sure ''she'' doesn't have any kind of feelings for Adrien...?

** Alya has been trying to help Marinette confess her crush to Adrien. However, when she tries to arrange for an outing to the wax museum to become a impromptu date, texting Marinette with the news and ordering her to 'submit to her fate', Marinette replies that she's already ''at'' the museum with Luka, babysitting Manon.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Alya to consider the possibility that Marinette is ''already'' on a date, or to acknowledge that she already had other plans.\\
'''Instead:''' She tracks her down at the museum, accuses her of 'avoiding her call' despite how Marinette gave her a very clear answer about what she was doing, and attempts to grab her wrist and ''drag her'' off to see Adrien over her protests.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12974846/3/Embers Embers]]'', Izuku's Quirk is the ability to pull fire towards him (though he can't generate it), which he learns to launch using a combination of gymnastics and kung fu, creating something similar to [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender firebending]].\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Since students taking the Yuuei entrance exam are allowed to bring items to support their Quirks, he'd bring a blowtorch or other source of fire with him to the exams.\\
'''Instead:''' Izuku doesn't bring anything and simply hopes someone nearby has some sort of fire related Quirk.\\
'''The Result:''' Izuku fails the exam with only a few rescue points from sending Iida to save Ochako.


'''Instead:''' Jewelius [[SkewedPriorities absolutely refuses to spare a thought]] for [[spoiler:the Changelings]] until he's done with the heroes, even when Twilight herself asks him to focus on [[spoiler:the Changelings who're definitely more of a threat to ponies than the fugitive heroes she and other ponies are already starting to forgive]]. He tries to get the citizens off his back by having Twilight lie to them, but [[SuddenPrincipledStand she disobeys his orders]], and he allows her to realize his true nature in their following argument, leading her to escape from Canterlot with the Elements of Harmony and reconcile with the other heroes. [[spoiler:After Jewelius' army is petrified by the Elements and he's cornered by the heroes, the Changelings take their chance to kill him while he's at his weakest.]]

** After [[ForWantOfANail Twilight has stopped the Changelings]], Jewelius starts acting aggressively and calls all the other heroes (even Cadance who can't be held accountable for being taken by surprise and imprisoned) out of their mistakes while the wedding guests and some guards are present. He doesn't really give anypony a chance to properly explain themselves, and Vivian points her horn threateningly toward Celestia the moment the princess opens her mouth.\\

** After [[ForWantOfANail Twilight has stopped the Changelings]], the [[BitchInSheepsClothing previously well-mannered]] Jewelius starts acting aggressively and calls all the other heroes (even blames Princess Celestia, Shining Armor and Twilight's friends ([[KickTheDog and even Cadance who can't be held accountable for being taken by surprise and imprisoned) out of their mistakes imprisoned]]) for letting the invasion happen by [[MadeOutToBeAJerkass refusing to listen to Twilight about Chrysalis]], all the while the wedding guests and some guards are present.

** When the [[HeroWithBadPublicity disgraced heroes]] -- Celestia, Cadance, Shining Armor, the Mane Five and Spike -- sneak inside Canterlot's castle in search of Twilight, they come across an intersection of three hallways on their way to the library. They [[LetsSplitUpGang decide to split into three groups]] and reach the library through the three different routes, believing they'll be less likely to get caught if they aren't all together.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The princesses and Shining Armor would first use their knowledge of the castle to give each group instructions on how to best reach the library through the different paths and possibly avoid any patrolling guards. Or better yet, Celestia, Cadance and Shining Armor should each be leading one of the groups.\\
'''Instead:''' The fugitives split up randomly (with Celestia and Shining Armor both in one group and Cadance in another) and start finding their ways without further discussions. Only the group consisting of Celestia, Shining Armor and Spike reaches the library and finds Twilight without being noticed. All the others are found by [[TheBrute Commander Hildread]], leading Cadance to [[YouShallNotPass buy them time to escape]] and end up being injured by [[spoiler:Jewelius]]. That in turn leads to Twilight -- who has been [[CorruptTheCutie manipulated by Jewelius]] during the past week -- renouncing her brother, friends and mentor in anger before she detains them with a magic dome and allows them to be imprisoned.

* ''Fanfic/LovedAndLost'':
** Right before the Changeling invasion begins, Prince Jewelius has his assistant Vivian help Twilight Sparkle and Princess Cadance out of the crystal caves. Once they've interrupted the wedding ceremony to stop Queen Chrysalis, Jewelius proudly tells the latter of what he did. She's very surprised that [[spoiler:she has been betrayed by [[EvilAllAlong Jewelius]] who convinced her to start the invasion in the first place]].\\

'''Instead:''' Chrysalis [[spoiler:brushes off the entire issue, confident her victory is assured anyway. She ends up being shrunken and trapped in a glass jar, and it's not until a week later that she gets a chance to expose Jewelius to the heroes when all of them are at his mercy and locked up in cells along with her]].

* ''Fanfic/TheThirdFaction''
** The Blue Faction has just come across Siegfried, who has given his heart to the homunculus & is about to fade away.
'''You'd Expect''': That with Siegfried being an enemy and their current position being delicate, they would just let him die, thus depriving the Black Faction of a powerful Servant & one less enemy for the Blue Faction to
deal with.
'''Instead:''' Artoria decides to give Siegfried Avalon to regenerate his missing heart so she could have a proper
duel with him.
'''You'd Also Expect''': Rin & Shirou, but especially Rin to raise objections over Saber's actions & threaten to use a Command Seal to force compliance if she didn't listen. Rin could've used a Command Seal anyway & explain her
reasoning after they got away from the Black Faction.\\
'''Instead''': They trust in Saber to 'do the right thing' & just stand there & do nothing else.\\
'''The Result:''' The Blue Faction loses Avalon, resulting in a major disadvantage against so many Servants &
leaving their position more vulnerable then before & the Black Faction having a powerful weapon. And while
Siegfried might be willing to return Avalon, the majority of the Black Faction, particularly the Masters, will
not be willing to do so and will undoubtedly be using Avalon to their full advantage.\\
'''Even Worse:''' A confrontation occurs with the Black Faction & while no battle occurs & The Blue Faction is allowed to leave, the confrontation consisted of several reveals from the Blue Faction: mainly Shirou using Unlimited Blade Works, Rin revealing her full name & revealing Saber's true name to the Black Faction & while the
Red Faction is their enemy, there's no guarantee that they won't be told the same information.
