What's altered after retired soldiers explored leisurely? After agreeing to bring Foreman back, reduce the team's salary, and add it to Foreman's, she tells them that she has no idea what they're talking about, and hasn't seen or spoken with Foreman in four days.
Cue Foreman's appearance right outside Cuddy's office, smug smile and all. This occurs in the season 8 episode "Chase", surprisingly on House against Taub. Throughout most of the episode, House is constantly attempting to successfully ambush Taub, who's been taking self defense classes, and Taub is shown to be surprisingly adept at reacting to whatever House throws at him. He also reveals, however, that constantly being on guard against House's attacks forces him to try to think three steps ahead of House; in one scene, House assigns Taub to "obviously fraudulent lab work" so that he'd know exactly where Taub would be at the time so he could leap out and blast him with a squirt gun and as a bonus, he'd get to watch Taub's paranoia at work beforehand, watching him look in all the wrong places for the oncoming attack.
After he leaps out and fires, however, it turns out Taub already rigged the squirt gun to misfire, and instead it squirts at House's own face. Pretty much how the team beats the Villain of the Week in every episode of Leverage. A season finale involves the team squaring off against their most dangerous opponent yet - the guy from the pilot who put the team together in the first place.
He knows every single con they pull to the point of knowing exactly which algorithm Hardison will use to hack a hydroelectric plant's computer. Fortunately, the team realize this and get the help of several acquaintances including Parker's aging Gentleman Thief mentor and Nate's ex-wife and former opponents The Cracker Chaos and the bruiser who beat up Eliot in the first season. In the end, Nate has the two Big Bads cornered on a precipice with a gun pointing at them, choosing which one to kill.
Then he sees his team and changes his mind. He leaves the gun at the edge of the precipice and walks away, knowing full well that the Big Bads would lunge for it and fall.
In Mad Men , Duck Phillips tries to leverage Don Draper out of his position at Sterling Cooper through a corporate buyout that would leave him as President and Draper's creative division nearly devastated. He does all this, since any contract Draper was working under would definitely have a clause restricting him from taking clients with him should he leave the firm. The hitch in Duck's plan? Don doesn't have a contract at all. Probably the most notable example is in "The Crimson Hat" when Jane thinks he's tricked Red John and is going to meet him while in reality, Red John not only knows it's a trick and adjusts accordingly, but takes it a step further by setting up Wainwright as his stand-in to be ultimately shot and killed by the FBI.
In Noah's Arc , Guy has an elaborate plan to manipulate both Alex and Trey, involving staging random accidents that Guy can "fix", breaking down Alex's credibility in the eyes of Trey and Alex's friends, and a Wounded Gazelle Gambit. As complex as Guy's plan is, he's Out-Gambitted by Alex and his friends concocting a simple fake note, tricking Guy into revealing his feelings for Trey who was never interested to begin with.
Michael manages to out-gambit his enemies several times throughout the series with backup and contingency plans. In the season 2 finale of The Sandbaggers , Burnside spends the entire episode maneuvering to convince Wellingham to appoint Peele as the head of SIS, as Gibbs, the other candidate for the job, is someone he has a long-standing rivalry with; he spies on Wellingham to find out what he wants and feeds the information to Peele, goes looking for skeletons in Gibbs' closet and tells Wellingham they're common office gossip, and so on.
Then Peele writes a memo that clearly displays him to be unfit for the job, and Burnside has to go back to Wellingham and walk back everything he's said, and Wellingham reveals that he knew all along what Burnside was up to, had already made the decision to appoint Gibbs, and had maneuvered Peele into writing the memo in order to convince Burnside that he wasn't a suitable candidate.
In the third season finale of Sherlock , Sherlock Holmes himself is the recipient of this trope, at the hands of " the Emperor of Blackmail ," Charles Augustus Magnussen.
Holmes has made a Deal with the Devil to take Magnussen down - in exchange for Magnussen's blackmail materials, especially those related to Mary Watson's bloody past as a CIA agent , Magnussen will receive Mycroft's laptop, which contains valuable MI 6 secrets.
Magnussen agrees to the deal and flies Holmes and Watson to his island mansion, where he reveals that there never were any blackmail materials - Magnussen's memory is just so good that he can remember every incriminating detail he's ever learned about everyone he's ever met.
And he's already called MI6 to arrest Holmes and Watson for selling state secrets. Holmes is so utterly dumbfounded at being gotten the better of that to prevent the villain from getting away with his crimes and save Watson from Death Row, he decides to kill Magnussen himself and surrender to government custody.
Victoria Hardwick, one of Lex's early love interests, persuaded him to help her father take over LuthorCorp. Lex suggested they take over both their fathers' companies together. She then stole information from him that Cadmus was a prosperous lab and that LuthorCorp had sunk all their money into a bid for the company, and arranged for Hardwick to outbid them. When she revealed this to him, he explained that the data was fake and Hardwick had bought a worthless company, leaving them financially vulnerable and allowing LuthorCorp to buy them in turn.
Tess manages to out-gambit the Alternate Universe version of her own father, Lionel Luthor, who is the epitome of Magnificent Bastard , after he usurps control of LuthorCorp from her. He really should have known better than to underestimate his own daughter , even if the version of her from his universe is a Bastard Bastard who doesn't meet any of his expectations. He honestly seems a mix between shocked, furious, and impressed. In the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Counterpoint", Voyager is smuggling telepathic refugees to a hard-to-find, mobile wormhole, so they can escape a repressive telepathic regime, despite repeated inspections by soldiers led by Inspector Kashyk, who lets his men search the ship ineffectively, since the telepaths are kept in the transporter buffer during the inspections while he engages in Foe Yay with Captain Janeway.
Then he arrives on his own, claiming to be a defector and to have always known about the transporter trick and never told his men. Together, he and Janeway make great headway in finding the wormhole, but before the work is completed he has to return to his crew to keep them being ineffectual and prevent them becoming suspicious. He then returns in an official capacity and, with his second-in-command out of the room, asks Janeway if she's located the wormhole.
As soon as she tells him where it is, he calls in his second , orders his men to materialise the telepaths and flies Voyager to the wormhole, intending to destroy it to prevent further escapees.
Except the wormhole isn't there, the transporter buffer is full of vegetables, and the telepaths are already on their way to the actual wormhole location in cloaked shuttles - using cloaking methods Kashyk shared with Janeway as part of his defector ruse.
You created false readings. That is the theme for this evening, isn't it? In the sixth season finale, Castiel and Crowley have a simple plan: Castiel being the more powerful of the two decides to cut Crowley out of the deal at the last minute, and take all the power for himself.
Very quickly, this starts to look like a bad decision on Castiel's part, because Crowley immediately seeks out and 'defects' to Castiel's most powerful enemy: Crowley offers Raphael the original deal and together, Raphiel and Crowley force Castiel to flee, leaving behind all the ingredients for the spell.
What he left behind include a fake version of one ingredient; something rare, hard to get, and crucial to the spell. He'd already hidden the real item away somewhere else. While Raphael and Crowley waste their time trying to cast a spell that can never work, Castiel is able to complete his work without threat or interruption. By the time he finishes, he's pretty much the most powerful being in the Supernatural universe.
Only God, and probably Death, are stronger. Raphael doesn't fare very well after that. All the Winchesters have managed to successfully pull this on occasion.
Henry, John and Sam are all pretty good, but the really master has to be Dean. More often than not, Dean manages to defeat what ever being of much greater strength, power or intelligence or all three he is up against, but making them think they are winning.
Happens in Third Watch in the final season. A serial killer is playing games with two cops and won't tell them where his latest victim is hidden before she dies - he knows pretty much the exact hour this happens. However, he's willing to divulge her location after that hour.
What the cops do? Since the perp has no way of knowing the time outside of the interrogation room, they switch the clocks. Same as the film. That lousy, stinking, lying, cheating, totally dishonest, dirty, rotten- Lawrence: Yes Freddy, isn't she wonderful!
The History of the Devil: Lucifer is out-gambitted twice; once in a flashback by Jesus Christ , and again at the ending by the prosecution. His goal had been to reenter heaven by proving himself innocent of humanity's suffering.
The prosecution acquits him on the caveat that he can never leave heaven again, knowing that heaven is utterly empty , having been abandoned by God and the other angels. Richard of Thrill Me plans the perfect crime, and Nathan acts as his accomplice because Nathan is better at details.
However, Nathan wants them to get caught. Nathan leaves evidence kind of everywhere. From an embarrassing photo used to instigate a blackmail scheme, to allergy information to put a young boy in a dangerous situation, to non-integral minions bribed into disloyalty, to said young boy made angry enough to want to kill the blackmailer, Maderas' scheme to inherit the throne by killing Laharl was made one of these by Etna herself, and he never saw it coming up until it actually happened.
Seraph Lamington does the same by acting like a gullible fool around his right hand man, Archangel Vulcanus. Vulcanus believed Lamington was completely blind to his plan to conquer the Netherworld, Celestia, and the Human World, while it turned out Lamington was very aware of his schemes from the start, and in fact he was using Vulcanus' plan in order to lure Laharl and Flonne to Celestia so he could begin the last step in his own Gambit.
Although primarily designed to be humorous, Peasant's Quest falls into this trope when the expected victory scene is replaced with a short speech by Trogdor informing the player that despite having met all of the said conditions for vanquishing the dragon, he is invincible and cannot be killed. Fortunately, you get a statue built of you because you've come closer than anyone else.
Then a few missions later your commanding officer returns to reveal that the entire thing was a ploy to lure Nod into making a hasty offensive, so not only are you able to counterattack, but a surge in GDI funding has led to new toys like Orca VTOL craft and Ion Cannons.
It's the only time in the series we've seen him speechless. The Gambit Pileup of Chrono Cross occurs when two factions compete on manipulating entire civilizations and one of fiction's greatest Unwitting Pawns to further their schemes across time and space, little realizing that they themselves are being played by a Chessmaster who nobody had accounted for, despite making little effort to hide himself and even having exposition-heavy chats with the protagonist on several occasions.
The player's interaction with Drakuru in World of Warcraft becomes this. While he initially uses you as a pawn in his schemes to breach Drak'tharon Keep and enable the Scourge invasion of the Gun'drak zone, things change once you get there. He tries to turn you into a ghoul and make you into his right hand , but the Knights of the Ebon Blade fake the transformation and have you secretly sabotage all of his plans while pretending to serve him. Eventually you manage to turn his secret weapon against him and he asks the Lich King for help, who kills him.
This turns out to be because Arthas is working on a gambit of his own, and you're more important to it than Drakuru. The Game Mod Blue Planet: War in Heaven for FreeSpace 2 has a magnificent example of this. He knew exactly what sort of gambit Calder would pull on Lopez, and when Calder's battered, exhausted force finally began to close the noose on Lopez's flagship GTD Carthage , Steele brings the GTD Imperieuse out of its Silent Running Mode in the Asteroid Belt—Calder thought he had left Sol system to resupply—and jumps out of subspace into the fray at the exact right location to start tearing Calder's ships to pieces with his main beam cannons from beyond the Earth ships' effective range.
The "Tevs" lose a few small ships and a number of fighters, while the most elite task force in the entire United Earth Federation is almost completely destroyed save one ship in a matter of minutes. Also doubles as a Player Punch as the player is stationed on that one ship that makes it out alive only to emerge from subspace too close to the sun and doom the crew to an agonizing death In every Resident Evil game except 5 , Wesker always wins.
Everything is set up to rebound to his benefit, even if he takes a hit or two along the way. Until 5 , the only character to hand Wesker a defeat of any kind is Ada Wong, who pulls off a successful doublecross at the end of Resident Evil 4.
Alex Chessmasters his way to attaining the ultimate power of the Golden Sun, only to find that The Wise One had foreseen the possibility of this happening and arranged events at the beginning of the first game such that Alex would be screwed over at the last possible second of the second game.
Eggman kidnaps Amy, in order to get Sonic to give him the last Chaos Emerald. However, earlier, Tails made a fake, which would ultimately blow up the Eclipse Cannon. Sonic plans to exchange it for Amy, to kill "two birds with one stone". However, Eggman tricks Sonic into getting trapped in an escape pod rigged to explode. What follows can only be expressed in dialogue. You thought you could trick me with that fake Emerald? How did you know it wasn't the real one?
Because you just TOLD me , fox-boy! The plot is a series of these, each getting sprung on by the next gambit. The ending even comes down to which one ultimately pays off: Bane actually wants it all for himself, and only worked with Batman because it would be easier to find everything this way. However, at the resolution of the quest, Batman reveals that he knew full well Bane's intentions and that he let Bane collect his half anyway so he could dispose of them in one go.
This plan would have gone without a hitch if it didn't run counter to the plans of the Precursors. One of them, Juno, was aware that Lucy had betrayed the Assassins. Continuum Shift plays with this trope in Arcade mode - while in Story mode Yuuki Terumi's scheme comes to fruition with few flaws, he needed to view the entire Continuum Shift to do it, and two characters in Arcade mode came dangerously close to obliterating his plans.
Rachel Alucard knew fully well that Terumi was on the hunt for Noel Vermillion, the "Eye of the Azure", and in her penultimate fight, she encounters the girl and fights her to help her understand just what she is and what she's capable of.
Even though Rachel explained things quite clearly, Noel did not want to accept reality, and that left a window for Terumi to come in, grab her, and toss her into the cauldron for her scheduled smelting. Makoto Nanaya, empowered by her knowledge of events in Slight Hope , cut right on through and disabled Tsubaki so she wouldn't try to kill Noel, and right after took Noel down to break her mindrape induced trance.
Logic dictates that Terumi had no choice but to pull Noel out of Makoto's grasp at this time - Makoto knew full well what Noel was, had every intention of explaining herself to Noel, and Noel was more inclined to believe her close friend than the vampire in the poofy dress. The resulting battle between Makoto and Terumi saw the latter chomping at the bit to kill the "little bitch" once and for all. The Illusive Man has his plan to subvert Shepard in Mass Effect 2 by giving a false impression of Cerebus as the misunderstood good guys by ensuring the Normandy SR-2 was crewed by generally morally upright and sympathetic Cerebus members blow up in his face.
By putting good people on the ship, they respond to being led by Shepard, especially the Paragon version, by promptly showing they're far more loyal to Shepard when Shepard tells their boss to get stuffed. Note this mass defection also includes the ship.
The Illusive Man himself gets outwitted by the Reapers. Although he came really close to fulfilling his plans to control them and use them to take over the galaxy, he ultimately ends up indoctrinated from prolonged contact with Reaper technology.
Near the end of the game, the Big Bad , in his bid to release Grima , puts you into a situation where it appears you have killed the game's main character, as was foreshadowed in a dream sequence at the very beginning of the game. This leaves the villain with one hero dead, the other his puppet, and the legendary treasure in his possession Then the Hierophant, who is the Grima from the Bad Future, jumps into the Awakening ritual, using his own power to resurrect the present Grima, effectively completing the plan and out gambitting the Avatar at the same time.
A villainous and tragic example occurs in chapter 9. Thanks to the knowledge the Hierophant gives him, Validar is able predict every single tactic the Avatar uses in their attempt to save Emmeryn and effortlessly counters them each time, ultimately resulting in the death of Phila and Emmeryn's Heroic Sacrifice.
StarCraft I and the expansion Brood War feature a massive Gambit Pileup , where Kerrigan ultimately Out-Gambits everyone, kills most of the characters, and only spares those not worth it because mercy is worse. And then it's revealed that she was out gambitted by someone else.
Given that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has a massive Gambit Pileup , this trope is in full effect as Chessmasters are pitted against each other - however, the winner being Letho came out of left field for most players, albeit at the behest of the Emperor of Nilfgaard. While he DOES do some pretty creative things with the fact that most people can't see him , he's simply playing against several other, much better, chess masters.
Including one of the other world eaters. It occurs often in Tears to Tiara 2 as two very capable commanders duke it out. Worth mentioning is that quite a few of Hamil's plans seems to be very accurately predicted by Izebel, who counters it handily and makes life very hard.
She actually knew exactly what he's going to do because he told her before his memories were wiped and stashed away. When he finally defeats her, it was with a plan that she had insisted he not tell her. You and your team pull off a masterful one near the end.
After figuring out the traitor's identity, your team sets him to help bust the Conspiracy he's working for, and successfully plan two steps ahead of him for every move he makes, up to and including him trying to kill you. He bluffs Ganondorf into allowing him to go through with his plan, knowing that Ganon needs his help in order to achieve the power of a God and become unstoppable.
The final case of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney reveals that Kristoph Gavin set up a long Gambit involving poisoning a painter via postage stamp and his daughter via nail polish after using the two of them to take revenge on Phoenix. But, Phoenix Wright set up an even greater Gambit that overhauled the entire legal system of the country just to catch Kristoph. This happens in case 4 of Phoenix Wright: When the government wouldn't cancel the launch, Yuri took matters into his own hands by switching Launch Pad 1 with the Space Museum formerly Launch Pad 2 and having Clay Terran drug Sol Starbuck with his own anxiety pills to keep him none the wiser.
However, the Phantom wiretapped his phone and used this information to kill Clay and escape. Cinder had already figured out that Raven Branwen had planned on double-crossing her to keep the holder of the Spring Maiden powers, Vernal, away from her. With the trio away from everyone else, Cinder makes her move, freezes Raven, then gloats about how pathetic a leader she is as she uses her Grimm arm to gut Vernal and steal her powers.
To Cinder's horror, it's not there. Raven breaks free and reveals herself to have been the real Spring Maiden; Vernal was just a decoy. Violet's cup is spiked so that Racquel can humiliate her. Abby swaps the cups so Racquel is drinking her own punch, since Abby wants to be rid of Racquel.
In Tales of the Questor , the fae princeling Dolan had set up a gambit both to shaft the human Duke, after DECADES of extortion, into releasing the Wild Hunt, and another to raise the princeling's own status in the Unseleighe Court and to debase a family enemy from the Seleighe court by forcing his enemy's daughter, Lady Absinthe, to ride the wild hunt for him.
This led to the whole thing rather famously blowing up in his face Quentyn himself managed to do this with a group of people who tried to repossess half his home village, including his parents' farm: Dateline tries To Catch A Predator. Meanwhile, a fan tries to see live Stone Phillips. The basis of this Penny Arcade strip. Caliborn and Calliope in Homestuck. Calliope typically comes across as by far the smarter of the two, but unfortunately for her, Caliborn is really good at thinking outside the box.
At one point, their relationship is reflected by a game of chess they're playing, and Calliope comments that Caliborn is playing really badly and wonders why he bothered pestering her into letting him switch the positions of his king and queen.
A few turns later, he calls checkmate, and she thinks he's crazy Calliope, quite understandably, Rage Quits. More importantly, he short-circuits most of her plans instantly by just having her dreamself assassinated before their session even starts. The events surrounding the trolls' entry into the medium also qualify. Equius and Vriska are plotting to usurp the title of Blue Team Leader from Aradia with both of course also planning to backstab the other.
Aradia allows them to proceed, because a. Rose gets Out-Gambitted big time by Doc Scratch. She knew that she was an Unwitting Pawn from the beginning, though never knew to what extent she was being controlled. This becomes symbolic when you consider her Aspect, Light , and her class, Seer, and how she was manipulated by creatures of the Void to do their bidding. In the "Barsoom Command" arc, Schlock has discovered that the mission he is on was nothing but a trap to trick them into drawing one of their allies, the AI Lunesby, out of hiding.
The trap has been sprung, Lunesby is in danger, most of Schlock's team has been arrested, and he's not far behind. Right when the bad guys are about to finish sweeping everything under the rug, they realize that Lunesby has already escaped; a few days previously Schlock hired an old enemy to contact some new friends, and they completed the mission while the bad guys were distracted containing Schlock and his team.
The awesome part is that Tagii was a partition in Ennesby's brain at the time ; it was literally impossible for her to be smarter than him, but she outsmarted him anyway. Unfortunately, he also underestimates the amount of influence that Kirby still holds over them.. In "Mad Love" adapted from an issue of The Batman Adventures , Harley Quinn actually gets Batman to fall for one of her traps, but then Batman rather expectedly uses a Batman Gambit to exploit both her feelings for the Joker and how the Joker would react.
She almost had me, you know. Arms and legs shackled, dizzy from the blood rushing to my brain I had no way out other than convincing her to call you. I knew your massive ego would never allow anyone else the honor of killing me , though I have to admit she came a lot closer than you ever did He has after all been taught by the best. In "Injustice for All" the Injustice League has captured Batman, and begins working on different ideas to tear the league apart to defeat them.
What they don't realize before it's too late is that a Batman's manipulating THEM into screwing up, and b He can escape whenever he wanted. Naturally, The Joker - the member who actually caught Batman for the team- is the only guy except for the Ultra-Humanite who fully expects Batman to escape, and pleads for the right to kill him immediately. Lex Luthor doesn't listen, and the team listens to Lex, which means, of course, that The Joker was the Only Sane Man in that situation.
The third season revolves a great deal around the conflict between super villains Lex Luthor and Grodd.
In their final confrontation, Luthor manipulates Grodd into using his own powers to destroy himself, resulting in this exchange: It could have gone the other way. It really could have, couldn't it? But why speak ill of the dead? Arrow spots Question pocketing evidence, and confiscates a locker key.
Once he's gone, Question then reveals that the key was a fake-out, and the real evidence he palmed was a shipping manifest. And then we find out that Arrow knew he was being conned, and hid outside so that he could follow Question when he chased up the real lead. As is "super genius" Wile E.
Coyote, at least in those shorts where he's pitted against arch Karmic Trickster Bugs Bunny. In the Road Runner shorts, he's not really outwitted so much as victimized by fate, gravity, poorly designed ACME products, and his own ineptitude.
After they get out of the opening meeting with their boss at the publishing company, they take the elevator down. Daffy switches territories with the utterly apathetic Bugs about six times. The negotiations concluded, they celebrate by having a party. Our heroes are wise to the fact their drinks are spiked, and use The Force to switch theirs with some nearby partiers.
Not to be outdone, the Villain of the Week poisons all the air in the room. He thought he was getting around Cartman's Batman Gambit , only to run straight into one that was far , far worse and cry the delicious tears of unfathomable sadness. David Xanatos in episode 12, "Her Brother's Keeper". His plan is to woo Elisa's brother to his side, first taking advantage of the fact that she can't tell him about the gargoyles and hence why she thinks Xanatos is an evil mastermind and then tell him his own version to make sure not even their testimony will help anymore.
He even orders Fox to tell Elisa this outright, because with her brother no longer believing her, it will do her no good. Except that it does, because she brought a tape recorder. This plan is hardly Xanatos's best anyway, since it involves setting hypercompetent killers on himself with serious lethal intent and real weapons. In one American Dad! After he goes off them and causes havoc, Steve challenges him to a game involving two cups, one of which contains his medication.
The scene that follows is a parody of the one from The Princess Bride , and naturally Steve put Barry's meds in both cups. Unlike Westley, however, Steve has no immunity to the meds.
Slade figures this out and not only does Robin only meet with a Sladebot, but this causes tension between him and his friends. In My Little Pony: Discord has seemingly won, having broken Twilight and brainwashed her friends so they can't use the Elements of Harmony against him. What Princess Celestia does next is send back all of Twilight's friendship reports, and the memories sparked by reading those old letters convinces Twilight to fight for her friends and the bonds they share.
That way, Celestia outwitted a Reality Warper spirit of chaos by mailing a bunch of letters. In " Keep Calm and Flutter On ", Discord tries to ensure his safety by driving a wedge between the Mane 6 and getting Fluttershy to promise never to use the Element of Kindness against him. However, Fluttershy knew this was happening and managed to reform him by threatening to withdraw the friendship she had been building with Discord throughout the episode, which made Discord realize that her friendship did matter to him.
In Generator Rex , all of the villains who spent the entire series scheming to obtain the Meta-Nanites, the keys to godhood, were outmaneuvered before the series even began. The Salazars — Cesar and his parents — had programmed the Meta-Nanites in such a way that only Rex could tap into their full power.
In Young Justice , this happens to the Light on a few occasions. Near the end of the first season, they try to use blackmail to get Artemis, Superboy and Ms. Martian to join them, but they defuse the blackmail by telling the other team members their secrets.
Then they manage to create a cure and vaccine to the mind-controlling Starro-Tech, and catch the Light by surpise, allowing them to free the JL from the Light's control. Then the Team shows up, and not only did the Light fall for Aqualad and Artemis's fake deaths, the Team managed to infiltrate the assassins and capture nearly half the Light.
In one Rick and Morty episode, Rick is kidnapped and put in a simulation of his life by alien scammers who are, once again, trying to steal his formula for concentrated dark matter a powerful spaceship fuel. Rick knows he's in a simulation, but this time the aliens are prepared for this, and allow Rick to escape the simulation, return home, and enter the code to his safe filled with scientific secrets Rick counters this by escaping and attempting to fly home to change the safe code, but while being chased in the flight back to earth he needs to mix up some more of his special high-power fuel to escape.
But as soon as he instructs Morty on which ingredients to mix, it's revealed that - once again - he's still in the simulation, and now the aliens have his formula. The aliens, flush with pride and having finally gotten what they wanted, let Rick leave.
As Rick flies back to Earth, the aliens throw a party for their success and prepare the first batch of concentrated dark matter, only for the formula to result in a volatile compound that instantly destroys their entire ship. The rebels take the main dome and make preparations to launch it into space with all hands on board, essentially wiping out the entire occupying force of Lothal in one swoop.
Occasionally, ACME products do work quite well e. In this case, their success often works against Wile E. For example, The Dehydrated Boulder, upon hydration, becomes so large when it crushes him, or upon Wile E. Coyote finding out that the fine print on the warning label for the Earthquake Pills states that they are not effective on road runners, right after he swallows the whole bottle, thinking they're ineffective.
Other times he uses items that are implausible, such as a superhero outfit, thinking he could fly wearing it he cannot.
Another suggestion is that Wile E. Coyote is a "beta tester" for ACME. Coyote also utilizes war equipment such as cannons, rocket launchers, grenades, and bayonets which are "generic," non-ACME products. Coyote why he insists on purchasing products from the ACME when all previous contraptions have backfired on him, to which the he responds with a wooden sign right after another item blows up in his face: In Fast and Furry-ous , Wile E.
In another short, the names "A-1" and "Ace" are used. And in another, there was an Excelsior product. As in other cartoons, the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote must follow the laws of cartoon physics. Coyote cannot unless there is an opening through which he can fall. Sometimes, however, this is reversed, and The Road Runner can burst through a painting of a broken bridge and continue on his way, while the Wile E.
Coyote will instead enter the mirage painting and fall down the precipice of the cliff where the bridge is out. Coyote is allowed to hang in midair until he realizes that he is about to plummet into a chasm a process occasionally referred to elsewhere as "Road-Runnering", or a "Wile E.
Coyote can also overtake rocks or cannons which fall earlier than he does, and end up being squashed by them. If a chase sequence happens upon a cliff; The Road Runner is not affected by gravity, whereas Wile E. Coyote will unfortunately realize his error eventually and fall to the ground below.
A chase sequence that happens upon railroad tracks will always result in Wile E. Coyote being hit by a train.
Coyote uses an explosive for instance, dynamite that is triggered by a mechanism that is supposed to force the explosive in a forward motion toward its target, the actual mechanism itself will always shoot forward, leaving the explosive behind to detonate in Wile E.
Similarly, a complex apparatus that is supposed to propel an object like a boulder or steel ball forward, or trigger a trap, will not work on The Road Runner, but unfortunately, always will on Wile E. For instance, The Road Runner can jump up and down on the trigger of a large animal trap and eat bird seed off from it, going completely unharmed and not setting off the trap; but when Wile E.
Coyote places the tiniest droplet of oil on the trigger, the trap snaps shut on him without fail. At certain times, Wile E. This will always result in him losing track of his proximity to large cliffs or walls, and The Road Runner will dart around an extremely sharp turn on a cliff, but Wile E.
Coyote will rocket right over the edge and fall to the ground. In his book Chuck Amuck: Coyote cartoons adhered to some simple but strict rules: The Road Runner cannot harm the Coyote except by going "beep, beep. Trains and trucks were the exception from time to time. No dialogue ever, except beeping and yowling in pain. This rule was broken in " Zoom at the Top " where Wile E.
The Road Runner must stay on the road — for no other reason than that he's a roadrunner. This rule is broken in Beep, Beep, in a sequence where Wile E.
Coyote chases the Road Runner into a cactus mine. This also occurs in Fastest with the Mostest, when Wile E. Coyote lures the Road Runner to the edge of a cliff. Another occurrence was in "Freeze Frame", where Wile E. All action must be confined to the natural environment of the two characters — the southwest American desert.
All tools, weapons, or mechanical conveniences must be obtained from ACME. There were sometimes exceptions when the Coyote obtained other items from the desert such as boulders to use in his attempts. Other product brands have also been used by Wile E. The Coyote is allowed to catch the Road Runner, but is not allowed to eat him. For instance, Wile E. Coyote does catch the Road Runner in "Soup or Sonic", but is too small to eat him.
In a interview with Michael Barrier years after the series was made, screenwriter Michael Maltese said he had never heard of the "Rules. War and Pieces , the last Road Runner short directed by Chuck, was released in mid By that time, producer David H. The premise was a race between the bird and "the fastest mouse in all of Mexico," Speedy Gonzales, with the Coyote and Sylvester each trying to make a meal out of his usual target.
Much of the material was animation rotoscoped from earlier Runner and Gonzales shorts, with the other characters added in. Due to cuts in the number of frames used per second in animated features, many of these final Road Runner features were cheap looking and jerky. Also, the music was very different and of poorer quality than the older features a by-product of composer William Lava, who replaced the late Milt Franklyn and the retired Carl Stalling , and his music style different from his two predecessors.
The remaining eleven were subcontracted to Format Films and directed under ex-Warner Bros. These cartoons can easily be distinguished from Chuck Jones' cartoons, because they feature the modern "Abstract WB" Looney Tunes opening and closing sequences, and they use the same music cues over and over again in the cartoons, composed by William Lava.
