Simply put, a character is excessively prepared for a scenario, no matter how unlikely.

This trope is for you 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, and are Genre Savvy enough to prepare for every unlikely trope,

Also compare The Anticipator, who manages to remain unsurprised despite lack of preparation. Contrast Forgot to Feed the Monster. Trust Password is a subtrope.
