Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })In a world bound by laws of physics, some things are just impossible. Even when magic is involved, there are often limits.
Despite this, somehow there's someone who can do things thought impossible, simply because they do not realize that they should be incapable of the achievement. Any of the characters might occasionally be And You Thought It Was a Game, but it can be a recurring trait for a Genius Ditz or a Bungling Inventor. This trope focuses on the times the character in question achieved what he or she did largely because they had absolutely no idea that it was supposed to be impossible.
In contrast to many cartoons, which consistently (and inconsistently) apply and dismiss physics for the Rule of Funny, this trope is typically meant to occur when the act in question goes against whatever physics are firmly established within The 'Verse. Generally, the best way to tell the difference is whether or not the Achievement in Ignorance can be lampshaded or not.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })This can be played either seriously or for laughs. If for comedy, it is often The Ditz who does the undoable deed. If for drama, the character in question may be a genius or prodigy in his particular field.
This happens in Real Life, usually with things like math or physics equations and occasionally with feats of daring that the accidental daredevil hasn't been told are life-threatening. On the more mundane side of things are people learning or successfully trying things their more learned peers were taught couldn't be done.
Compare with Magic Feather (which gives people confidence to do things they only think are impossible for themselves), Beyond the Impossible (for impossible events or people trying to break the rules), Too Dumb to Fool (where a fool immediately sees through a lie or other treachery), Centipede's Dilemma (where being aware of what you're doing makes it harder to do when it's not literally impossible), Beginner's Luck, and Strategy Schmategy. Also compare Runs on Ignorance, which deals with devices that require ignorance in order to work.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Compare Accidental Discovery and I Thought Everyone Could Do That. Contrast Power Born of Madness (in which the person does impossible deeds because he no longer cares if they're impossible), the Determinator (who tends to do this kind of thing intentionally), and Metagame which is about achievements in meta-knowledge.
May lead to a How Unscientific! moment. A Snipe Hunt may occasionally end this way. If they can't do it anymore once it's pointed out that they shouldn't be able to, that's Reminder of Impossibility. Related to Clap Your Hands If You Believe, in which this can quite literally be the case; and "How Did You Know?" "I Didn't." when the situation is not limited to physics, just a highly improbable lucky guess. See also Magic A Is Magic A, which the perpetrators of this trope tend to violate. Also see Too Dumb to Fool, which can sometimes be the source of this trope. This trope may be the reason for the idea that Idiots Can Not Catch Colds. Overlaps with Runs on Ignorance.
Please note that this trope is not just doing something despite not knowing how, or doing something by accident or blind luck. It is specifically doing something thought to be impossible because you don't know it is "impossible".

In Rogue Sorcerer, Aiden manages to kill six master Sorcerers as well as unintentionally put a death curse on every other Sorcerer in existence in a gambit which he had been certain would end in his failure and death.

The Penguins of Madagascar:
The penguins have trouble removing a hornet nest. They discover that Mort isn't hurt by the hornets because he is protected by a "halo of ignorance". Kowalski uses a machine to drain their minds of bad thoughts so that they could then deal with the hornets. Hilarity Ensues.
In the episode "It's About Time", a time machine creates a hole in the space-time continuum that threatens to destroy the universe. Rico then tosses the machine into the hole, and it closes. When Kowalski states the impossibility of it, Skipper responds, "That's why Rico's a maverick. He makes his own rules."

In the Smart Guy episode "TJ Versus the Machine", TJ beats the unbeatable chess computer Socrates by taking a lead from Marcus. Marcus doesn't have a clue what he's doing, and TJ realizes that a computer designed to compete against expert players won't be able to formulate a strategy against random, unpredictable play.

At the end of Quarterdeck, Kydd earns his place in high society by inviting Thérèse Bernardine-Mongenet to a banquet hosted by Prince Edward. What Kydd doesn't (and the rest of Canada does) know is that his lady is the Prince's mistress, who isn't allowed to be with him at occasions such as the banquet.

In the Worm and Destiny crossover Paradoxical, where Taylor has been resurrected as a Guardian, Taylor's Ghost Kali wonders at one point if Taylor's abilities with the Light, which seem to fall in-between Hunter and Warlock, and confuse people trying to figure them out are because she was never told that it wasn't possible for her to do something.

Heralds of Valdemar:
Used seriously with the Valdemarans, who not only are able to come up with magical solutions no one has tried before because they aren't familiar with the cultures and traditions surrounding magic, but are also able to analyze it according to logical rules because no one has told them that magic doesn't follow rules, leading to one of the Hawkbrothers' bewildered muttering "But magic doesn't work that way!"
Said Hawkbrother eventually buckles in and starts learning Magic A Is Magic A, though he struggles with it. Going from perceiving himself as a master artist with magic to a bridgebuilder with math and calculations isn't easy for him.

The Infinite Loops: Billy has managed to kill several omnipotent loopers (Han Solo, Anakin Skywalker (twice), the entire Mane Six, etc.), drive a completely insane person sane who proceeds to shoot him, make Gendo Ikari a looper, and crash three safe-mode punishment loops, through nothing but lethal stupidity. He's also been labeled an MLE, despite having no malicious intentions whatsoever — his idiocy alone is enough to make him a threat to all of Yggdrasil. So many achievements, and Billy's too stupid to realize any of it.
On a lesser note, Ihy had a drunken bender and ended up bringing the Old Spice Duo into the Loops without realizing it until he sobered up. Ad Space was believed to be something of the last thing to do at best due to the supposed damages it sustained when Yggdrasil broke, so Ihy's accident actually helped make ads into viable Loopers (though not viable Branches to Loop into.)

Humans in the Disgaeaverse are already pretty damn tough in order to keep up with the various demonic invaders and/or Overlords, but most of the reasons are pretty damn rational (Cpt. Gordon is military trained, as is Jennifer, while Almaz is a guard and Sapphire a berserker). And then there's Fuka Kazamatsuri. While humans can tap into 30% of their potential without risking self-injury, she manages to tap into the full 100% when her back's against the wall... all by believing that she's in the midst of a soon-to-end nightmare despite being stone dead and a Prinny to boot! And unlike the previous humans, she has no training. She's just an Ordinary Middle School Student with a lot of ambition!

Raising Steam has the steam train "Iron Girder" essentially fly across a rickety bridge, supported only by mist and fog, because Moist convinces Simnel that it can (which turns out to be a subversion, because Moist has secretly made a temporary living ... or whatever ... bridge out of the Ankh-Morpork golems that the mist and fog prevent anyone from seeing).

In Boruto, the academy's graduation exam includes a similar test, with Shino all but coming right out and telling his students that they should cheat. Several of the students pass the written exam by stealing a copy of the test in advance from the teachers' lounge and memorizing the answers. But since Boruto barely even pays attention in class, he treated it like a normal written test and just answered the questions correctly on his own.

This was probably the original intention behind Han Solo's retort to C-3PO in The Empire Strikes Back: "Never Tell Me the Odds!!" Han does not want to know how unlikely his various insane flight maneuvers are to work precisely because that might deter him from trying them, and those insane maneuvers were their only chance of escape. Han does not want to know what is impossible, or so unlikely as to be effectively impossible.

In Dark Souls III, you encounter the latest iteration of the Onion Knight, Siegward of Caterina, when he's trying to find his way to the top of a tower by overcoming a fairly basic lift puzzle. When you have, yourself, solved the lift puzzle and gotten to the top of the tower, you will find that even though the lift hasn't moved since you used it, and he certainly wasn't on it with you, Siegward has somehow managed to find his way to, not the top of the tower, but a ledge partway along the lift shaft that you can only reach by rolling off at the correct time. Even he's not sure how he got there.

On Jon's own channel, JonTron, this happens quite a lot, by way of managing to play games inserting them into the wrong consoles. Or the wrong machines entirely. And playing episodes of Goosebumps by inserting the books into a console. In his Titenic (sic) video he plugs the correct cartridges into the correct console, but then submerges the console in a fish tank before playing it. He also somehow manages to recut a total disaster of an episode into something actually good in post-editing, apparently just by pushing a couple of buttons on his FitBit.

The Belgariad:
This is played seriously when Garion tries to resurrect the dead colt and succeeds, something Belgarath (the first and most powerful human sorcerer) can't do. In this case, it's primarily used to show just how much sorcery depends on the sorcerer believing a feat is possible. In particular, the adolescent Garion sees things as simpler than they actually are, which lets him do things that his learned elders think are too complex to be done. Belgarath notes at one point that this also puts Garion at risk, as this sometimes results in Garion attempting things that more experienced sorcerers would know are too dangerous to try. This is also Foreshadowing, as Errand, a complete innocent, convinces the gods to bring Durnik back to life in the last book largely by not comprehending he's dead...largely.
Also subverted in the fifth book, Enchanter's Endgame, by Queen Islena of Cherek when ruling in her husband's stead. Following suggestions of a fellow queen, she orders a priest trying to usurp power to go to the front lines or be sent to the dungeons. Such an ultimatum would be completely unacceptable behavior for the monarch, except Islena isn't well known for her intellect and is assumed to be ignorant of her apparent faux pas. Unable to counter the queen's order, his take-over not yet ready, and with no actual legal grounds to protest, the priest is sent to war. And once the priest is there with the rest of the army, he really can't come up with a compelling reason why he should be sent home again. Especially since members of his radical sect claim to be fearsome warriors who aren't afraid of battle. Her husband King Anheg later admits that he could never have done this because he is expected to know better.
Also, in Polgara the Sorceress, Polgara comments on Belgarath's ability to continue at any given task unrelentingly, and supposes he may be able to "store up sleep" during his long periods of rest, something she knows/believes to be impossible. Just afterward, she decides it might be interesting to test the capacity of a human to do what seems impossible - when one doesn't know it—by convincing Mandorallen to pick himself up by the scruff of his neck.

Honor Harrington:
The Graysons had to work out on their own how to use most Manticoran technology. They ended up making some revolutionary discoveries from this since part of the process included doing things no one already knowledgeable about the technology would have thought to try.
Honor herself remarks in The Honor of the Queen that the world's greatest swordsman doesn't fear the second greatest, but rather the worst swordsman because he has no idea what the idiot will do.
Graysons also are the known galaxy's experts in nuclear fission power. While everyone else had switched to fusion for safety and environmental reasons, Grayson had a very low tech base and a lot of heavy metals, including radioactives. After several centuries, this resulted in safe, reliable, cheap, and powerful fission powerplants, so effective that the Manticoran navy adopted them for their small combat ships/"fighters".

The Simpsons: Homer's intelligence varies depending on the writer and, as a result, achieves great feat that require a drop in his IQ (for better or worse).
In "Homer Goes to College", Homer Simpson achieved an Epic Fail so massive that he managed to cause an actual nuclear meltdown in a nuclear plant simulation truck with no fissionable materials.
In "Homer's Enemy", Frank Grimes tries to get everyone to witness Homer's stupidity by tricking Homer into entering a "Design Your Own Power Plant" contest intended for elementary school students. Homer designs a power plant model with racing stripes and fins to lower wind resistance. Mr. Burns is so impressed by the display that he awards Homer first prize, and Frank Grimes, who is frustrated by Homer's dumb luck, undergoes a lethal Sanity Slippage when he grabs a pair of high-voltage cables and electrocutes himself to death.
In "Homer The Smithers", Homer managed to light a bowl of cereal on fire by pouring milk on it.
In the "Treehouse of Horror V" story "Time And Punishment", he managed to build a Time Machine by failing to repair his toaster.
In "Bart the Lover", he manages to solve two problems simultaneously, each one solving the other! When trying to build a doghouse, he hurts and injures himself, causing him to cuss a lot. Marge suggests a swear jar. After several days of trying to build the doghouse using the swear jar, he eventually stops cussing and gains enough change this way for Marge to buy a doghouse. (And a six-pack of Duff.) In other words, the doghouse project helps him stop swearing and the swearing helps gain a new doghouse!
In "The Front", Grandpa Simpson managed to take off his underpants without taking off his pants first. When asked how he did that, he is as confused as everyone else.
In "Homer Defined", in the realm of “possible but exceedingly unlikely”, Homer also manages to prevent a catastrophic meltdown two separate times by pressing a single button on his console at random.
In "Home Sweet Homediddly-Dum-Doodily", Homer attempts to figure out Flanders's whereabouts by trying to think like Flanders. His internal monologue goes "I'm a big four-eyed lame-o and I wear the same stupid sweater everyday and..." Seconds later, he concludes from his introspection that Flanders is at the Springfield River. He's right.
In "Bart's Comet", Principal Skinner has spent years meticulously searching the night sky for something to name after himself. He makes calculated and precise adjustments to his telescope, carefully logging each movement, but hasn't found anything. Bart screws around with the telescope for a few seconds, spinning it completely at random, and finds a comet that gets named after him. Cue a Big "NO!" from Skinner.
In "The Cartridge Family" Homer attempts to engage the safety on his revolver and accidentally sets the firearm off, shooting a picture of Marge. Realizing he accidentally disengaged it he attempts to re-engage it... and it shoots the same photo of Marge. Then he sheepishly lays the firearm down, it fires itself which ricochets off a pot, strikes the handle of a knife, and sends it flying to embed into the same photo of Marge. The fact that revolvers don't have safeties in the first place (save for deliberate aftermarket conversions) only makes it even more amazing.

In Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, if Snake calls up Otacon and complains about seasickness, Otacon will suggest he take pentazemin (a fictional form of benzodiazepine he normally uses to reduce hand tremors while sniping). He does, and his seasickness goes away. A surprised Otacon reveals he suggested the pentazemin as a placebo effect and there was no way it should have worked. It also doubles as a case of Accidentally Correct Writing as drugs from the Benzodiazepine class actually do treat motion sickness and Mal de Debarquement, presumably by suppressing central vestibular responses.

Eureka:
Basically the premise of the series. In a town full of the world's top geniuses, the average-intelligence-having sheriff often saves the day by not knowing enough about science.
Which is sometimes invoked after a while, especially by Sheriff Carter's friend Henry Deacon, since he has seen how many Eureka Moments have come from it. Henry is one of the few that doesn't immediately dismiss Carter's intelligence and treats his "dumb" questions more as teaching moments.

On the subreddit /r/ShittyAskScience a user once asked, If the sun were to instantly disappear, would it take 8 minutes for the earth to stop orbiting it?. However, this is actually what would happen if the sun were to spontaneously disappear as the force of gravity travels at the speed of light. The page exploded when they realized that someone asked a question so unreasonably stupid it became reasonable.

Looney Tunes:
The reason Wile E. Coyote and other characters in the shorts can do things like run off a cliff and not fall until they look down.
An early Daffy Duck cartoon had Daffy riding an invisible bicycle, with the remark "I'm so crazy, I don't know this is impossible!"
Another one had Wile E. and Road Runner run off the cliff. Wile E. looks down and falls to the ground, while the Road Runner still floats on a fragment of rock. Peeved by the latter part, Wile E. says via a sign, "I wouldn't mind - except that he defies the law of gravity!" Road Runner, in response, holds up a sign that says "Sure - but I never studied law!"
Bugs Bunny accomplished a similar feat in "High-Diving Hare". After Yosemite Sam tries to saw through a high-diving platform and the rest of the platform collapses, Bugs quips "I know this defies the law of gravity, but I never studied law!"
There is at least one instance of a character running off of the cliff, realizing it without looking down, and try to continue without looking down. Obviously, they look down (usually getting lured by their enemy).
There is a variation with Elmer and Bugs as children, where Elmer says they didn't study gravity yet. Then Bugs slipped him a book...
There was a Tiny Toon Adventures episode which explained the phenomenon. Elmer, teaching the young toons, said that as long as the toon didn't look down it wouldn't fall.
Which in itself is a shout out to an earlier Disney work where Walt himself explained this as the Plausible Impossible effect.

In Off the Line, Cloud Strife/Rainstorm does a lot of things other players or even the game developer didn't know were possible out of ignorance as a newbie player:
Rainstorm befriends Red XIII because he assumed that the latter had a unique player class as opposed to most players who assume Red XIII is a mob or a pet.
Rainstorm kills players higher leveled than him due him applying real-world logic and physics into the game, which most players don't.
Rainstorm finds out that Vincent is a real person and not a boss nor a glitch after a few minutes of talking to him, which Cait Sith didn't know even after ten years of attempting to delete Vincent.

Team 8:
While on their first "mission" (cleaning and repairing an injured herbalist's home), Kurenai has a full conversation with (who she thinks is) Naruto. He slips and falls off the roof, and then... he disappears in a cloud of smoke. It was a shadow clone. The strength and self-awareness of each clone are based on how much chakra is put into the technique, which is no problem for the chakra-riddled Naruto. But no one told Naruto that ever.
Quite a lot of Naruto stories have Naruto accomplishing impossible or exceedingly difficult feats (such as creating a solid transformation technique) simply because he thinks' he's doing things right.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann:
The very first combining happens because Kamina, in his ignorance and insanity, figures that just slamming two Gunmen together will combine them. Lucky for him, he used one made for this task, although it looks at first like that he instead just almost impaled himself.
The whole series kind of goes on with this. At one point Team Dai-Gurren completes a difficult operation—later, their supercomputer reveals the odds of their victory had been computed beforehand but hadn't told them because the result showed that success was a complete impossibility.
Interestingly, this indicates that the supercomputer also invoked this trope - by all accounts, it should have "exploded" due to seeing its impossible calculation mistake, yet it decided to ignore the mistake and continue running, simply because it knows the humans are also ignoring that 0% anyway.

There's a saying in Go that those who simply know Joseki (a series of standard, well-known plays) are worse than newbies. Newbies still make moves that are unpredictable, but those who simply play out Joseki are predictable. The point of knowing Joseki though is to understand when such moves are useful and when they are not to counter them.

Naruto:
The first part of the Chunin Exam is designed to test students' sneaking and information gathering skills. The test accomplishes this by being ridiculously hard so that the students will need to cheat to get the correct answers. They are penalized for being caught cheating, and lose points for any wrong answer. The expectation is that the students will realize that they need to cheat and not get caught. All of Team 7 passes, but only Sasuke figures out the intent of the test. Sakura works out the answers by hand, and Naruto leaves his test completely blank; neither gets caught cheating (and since he didn't leave any answers at all, none of them were wrong), so they pass. The proctor of the exam is rather amused when he sees Naruto's exam paper.
To a lesser extent, Sasuke never seemed to realize that his teammates are unable to cheat and might need him to pass answers like Kankuro, Tenten, or Ino were able to do.
In Boruto, the academy's graduation exam includes a similar test, with Shino all but coming right out and telling his students that they should cheat. Several of the students pass the written exam by stealing a copy of the test in advance from the teachers' lounge and memorizing the answers. But since Boruto barely even pays attention in class, he treated it like a normal written test and just answered the questions correctly on his own.

Stand Still, Stay Silent: Due to some traumatic event in his past, Onni is someone extremely reluctant to leave his comfort zone, both in the real world and in the mage-space. His family members are aware of this, and understand when he refuses to join the expedition. Reynir initially met Onni via walking into his mage-space safe area, where, in the midst of mistaking him for a threat, Onni showed his hidden more combative side. This causes Reynir to be completely oblivious to Onni's fear of less safe areas, consider him a go-to source of magical reinforcements and push the right buttons to get Onni to help when needed completely by accident.

One possible character trait in Death Road to Canada is Oblivious, which is surprisingly useful. Characters with the trait can bypass events due to simply not understanding the issues involved, (Such as walking into creepy locations that freak out the rest of the party) or distracting hostile adversaries with inane questions. (Such as asking the buff bandits why they're wearing sweatbands, which causes them to go into a flexing routine and forget about mugging the group.)

A sign on the third floor tells you to walk straight down the hall and to not deviate from the path or get distracted. Fail to follow the rule, and you will die at the end of the hall...unless you don't read the sign, then you can take the most crooked path you want. Ignorance of the rule excuses you from it!
However, if you read the sign before in other playthroughs, it will remember...

8-Bit Theater:
Fighter and Black Belt do this constantly. Black Belt has No Sense of Direction to the extent that he can ignore gravity, warp the Space-Time-Continuum, and duplicate himself. Fighter meanwhile, has done things such as fold portable holes into themselves and split himself into multiple Fighters in order to even out conflicting teams. Although this may be more of an achievement in poor organization than stupidity, Red Mage once survived having his skeleton pushed out his mouth because he lost his pencil and was unable to record the damage on his character sheet. Besides, as he claimed, everyone knows that skeletons are vestigial organs.
Red Mage frequently tries to invoke this trope, with various degrees of success. His approach is probably best summed up with "I know that and you know that, but I don't know that".
Vilbert (who claims to be a vampire, but is also a LARPer and probably just making it up) explains that he is able to survive in the sunlight because he feels it would be an uninteresting death. note  Vilbert is definitely some sort of supernatural being: after all he did survive having a bunch of organs pierced by a falling armoire.
Black Belt once held up a rope for the others to walk across over a lava pit. He then followed. When asked how, he replies, "Simple. I held up the rope and walked across, like you guys."
Fighter survived a fall at terminal velocity by blocking the ground.
This trope was explicitly used by Red Mage when he told Fighter to use "make [his] swords as things unto chainsaws", the logic being that Fighter is too stupid to realize he doesn't know how to do that. It works.
Black Mage, naturally, has mixed feelings about this trope.
Or the time Fighter started flying because he thought they had slain gravity. After surviving an airship crash, he assumed that since falling didn't kill them, that they must have killed falling instead. That one was actually caused by Sarda "jackassing" the Light Warriors back to his cave.

One episode of Camp Lazlo had Lazlo, Raj, and Clam build a boat. Out of brick and concrete. Somehow it's the only ship that manages to float and even takes off like a motorboat, likely because they didn't build it to Lumpus's specifications, as all the other teams did that and their boats sank immediately.

Jeff Doe's whole character revolves around this. In The Epic Life, Jeff is a teenager with a very bent understanding of logic and reasoning. It isn't clear if this is the source of his power, but regardless, he has no concept of "abnormal" and follows his inclinations. Despite having no clear limits, he normally acts like a regular person (albeit absent-minded and innocent) averting the whole A God Am I trope.

In A Protector's Pride, Rukia gathers the reishi (spirit energy) in the air to power her spells and doesn't think anything of it. Hitsugaya points out that is a technique exclusive to Quincies (Shinigami use the reishi in their own bodies).

Dragon Ball:
Dragon Ball: Goku trained for the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament by running around the world without using the Flying Nimbus cloud on account of advice from Master Roshi. When asked how he got to the tournament, he said he swam from Yahhoy, which turned out to be on the other side of the world from the tournament.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods: The God of Destruction, Lord Beerus, comes to Goku and friends looking for the "Super Saiyan God". According to a prophetic dream, this person will become Beerus' rival. Goku tries to fight Beerus when they first meet, but Goku's stongest form is beaten by a flick to the forehead and a chop to the neck. We learn that the Super Saiyan God is a form a Saiyan can assume with some help from 5 other pure-hearted saiyans. Goku transforms and finds he can now stand up to Beerus, but is disappointed that he got this power from his friends and not from his own training. That is, until Beerus points out that halfway through the fight the transformation wore off, but Goku continued fighting just fine anyway, having acclimated to the use of divine energy.
Dragon Ball Super: When Goku Black figures out that Vegeta used anger to power up, he tries the same thing. He turns his Laser Blade into a scythe capable of launching a Sword Beam that can rend a slash in spacetime which he could use to summon clones. An incredulous Vegeta asks him what he just did, and Black responds with, "I have no idea," and muses that the level of power he just achieved is now beyond even his comprehension.

This Bites!
This was invoked, then averted in the Navarone arc. Cross doesn't tell Zoro that he's trying to cut through a diamond-hard seastone cage, because he thought if Zoro didn't know he couldn't do it, he might be able to. It doesn't work.
Played straight in the Enies Lobby arc. During the battle on the Bridge of Hesitation, thanks to years of thieving and treasure-hunting, Nami notices a glint from a far-off battleship. She assumes it's a sniper, replaces herself with a mirage, and yells at her crewmates to get down. In reality, it was Admiral Kizaru, who was planning to use his Sacred Yata Mirror technique to warp onto the battlefield and kill them all. Instead, he flies straight into Nami's mirage and is refracted away from Enies Lobby, painfully colliding with the Red Line and left immobile. In short, Nami, a member of the Weakling Trio, unknowingly defeated one of the Three Admirals.

Xiaolin Showdown:
An early episode has three of the four heroes trapped in an invisible box by an evil mime. Raimundo is able to make noise sliding the Mantis Flip Coin against the "invisible" bars, while it was previously established that the walls were solid, and there were no bars. They use this to escape when they realize the box acts like whatever they think it does.

Discussed by Ken Silverman, the creator of the Build engine on which Duke Nukem 3D is based. When he made it open source, he expected a hardware-accelerated port to come soon after; instead, all he found was angry people calling whoever asked for such a port an ignorant and claiming "it was common knowledge" that a hardware-accelerated Build port could not exist. Ken Silverman then proceeded to make it himself, naming it Polymost. On release, he quipped that if those angry people were right in calling others ignorant, then he had to be the most ignorant of all, because not only he kept claiming it was possible, but he actually proved it was.

Dilbert:
Parodied when a CEO with no experience is hired because "someone who doesn't know anything doesn't know what can't be done." When he goes to shake hands with the Pointy-Haired Boss (who is right-handed), he extends his left...
This happened in Dilbert again with Ratbert, who was told he was so stupid that he had telekinetic power.
In another series of strips, Ratbert decides to fly simply by flapping his arms. Dilbert insists it can't be done. Bob the Dinosaur gives Ratbert some advice that turns out to work, resulting in him flying near an annoyed Dilbert and remarking "This must be so embarrassing for you."
One time Dilbert tells someone from Marketing that he reprogrammed his DNA into that of a weasel's. The poor dope is so gullible that he actually starts changing!

Discussed and invoked in The Dresden Files. While setting up a Batman Gambit, Harry compares himself several times to Wile E. Coyote. When things start exploding in his face, he thinks to himself that Wile E.'s big mistake is looking down. If he kept running, he'd make it to the other side of the canyon. While Harry isn't technically ignorant of the dangers around him, he decides to keep going anyway.

In a mainstream Animaniacs episode, Stinkbomb B. Basset Hound pursues Slappy, and when she climbs a tree to get away from him, he scales the tree after her. When he reaches her, however, she tells him that dogs can't climb trees, at which point he plummets to the ground. (He gets a good idea in the next scene and tries to use climbing gear to do it, but doesn't fare much better.)

In Dog Days, everyone is under the impression that the hero summoning spell that brought Cinque to Flognard is "one way"; that is, when Cinque returns to Earth, he'll lose all memories of his adventures and will never be able to come back. After he's gone home, Ricotta does some research and discovers a sort of loophole in the spell that will allow Cinque to regain his memories and to return some day — and he just happened to have performed every single requirement of that loophole in the process of saying his goodbyes to his new friends. Granted, the conditions aren't amazingly stringentnote The Hero has to give gifts to three different people (preferably from his homeland, but not required) as well as giving a written promise to return to the summoner, but he still managed to get them exactly right without realizing it.

Similar to the above-example in Garfield, there was one week-long series where Snoopy and Linus climbed a very large tree to investigate a "strange creature" in Woodstock's nest which turned out to be an egg. Eventually, Lucy came along, and Charlie Brown explained what was going on. Lucy shouted to them that dogs can't climb trees; Snoopy replied, "You're right!" before falling out with a crash.

In Super Dimension Fortress Macross/Robotech, this was the trope that enabled the crew of the SDF-1 to perform an extremely low altitude space-fold jump, which the enemy Zentraedi thought was impossible. The humans still barely understood a portion of the alien ship's capabilities and simply didn't know that using that system so close to a planet was considered an insane move. As it is, the human's seriously overshot their intended destination of the moon to just beyond Pluto and the stunned Zentraedi are left wondering if these supposed space warfare amateurs are actually tactical geniuses. The humans also irreparably banjaxed the space-fold drive -by which we mean to say they made it vanish in a Puff of Logic- but the Zentraedi had no way to know that. This would only be the first of many Indy Ploy or outright accidents that ended up confusing and impressing the Zentraedi.

Discworld likes this one:
Tiffany Aching reading the dictionary cover to cover because nobody ever told her she shouldn't and Susan Sto-Helit successfully teaching seven-year-olds algebra and, when told it's too hard for them, replies that so far they haven't figured that out. It needs to be said that examples of children learning something before adults would think they're ready to learn it are probably Truth in Television. A bright child may be reading books meant for adults by the age of eight or ten, though they probably won't understand everything they read.
Bergholt Stuttley "Bloody Stupid" Johnson is such an incompetent architect and inventor that he ends up creating buildings that are Bigger on the Inside, and circles with the value of pi equal to exactly 3. Three of the national projects that he undertook can fit in a normal pocket. The full list is here.
In Equal Rites, Esk teleports something without a counterweight and was able to do it because she didn't know it was impossible because she hadn't been formally taught. It does, however, have consequences later. As well as a possible explanation being given: any wizard could do that, but doing so greatly increases the chances of something going very, very wrong in transit, leading to wizards who know better never trying it.
Discussed in The Last Hero, when Leonard asks for journeymen craftsmen, rather than masters, because he has no use for "people who have learned the limits of the possible".
Death gives this explanation for how he can move through walls and otherwise tell the laws of physics to sit down and shut the hell up. His advice to Mort in his stint as his apprentice is not to think about it too hard and forget that you know that you can't move through walls. Mort is able to do this when he isn't actively thinking about it as he escapes a group of thugs by backing through a wall. Later books implied that this is because of Death's nature as being outside time - even if the wall is there now, there was or will be a time when the wall will not be or wasn't there, so Death instinctively travels through the space the wall occupies at a moment when there wasn't a wall, then reverts to the moment he needed to be in. When time gets imprisoned in Thief of Time, both he and Susan temporarily lose the ability to do this, as the world is frozen in a moment and there is no past or future to travel through.
Susan also uses this trope when she travels back through time to ask Death a few questions about her job. The Raven uses this trope as an example of why education is actually a bad thing.
An interesting example is Lord Rust, Ankh-Morpork's foremost military leader by dint of heritage; the man is a total incompetent with absolutely no tactical ability or military knowledge whatever and does not seem to comprehend the utter futility of attacking a vastly superior force on their home ground with virtually no provisions. While this has the obvious result of killing almost every man under his command, Rust is completely unharmed, even though he leads every suicidal charge from the front. By all laws of probability, he should be dead long ago. However, Rust has the unusual ability of being able to completely and subconsciously ignore anything that contradicts or is outside his extraordinarily unrealistic worldview, assuming that it simply cannot exist, including physical danger. He has been reported as charging directly at enemy lines surrounded by projectiles without being scratched; arrows have apparently changed direction to avoid him (which then hit his men). On the Discworld, sufficiently powerful belief can alter physical reality, and magic has been described as more or less ignoring the laws of physics.
Hodgesaaargh finds the newly-hatched phoenix because nobody told him that nobody had ever found one. A slight subversion in that the other characters think that it is this trope, whereas Hodgesaaargh also succeeds because he thinks of the phoenix first as a bird, then as a magical creature while everyone else thinks of it the other way round.
Cohen and his Silver Horde slaughter the Agatean ninjas because nobody told them that ninjas were invincible. They have a history of doing stuff like this. As Barbarian Heroes, they regularly do impossible things, kill impossible things, survive impossible things, and, in general, are impossible. There is a reason they have all lived to be very, very, very old and still haven't retired. In fact, that last one counts as the biggest impossibility they regularly pull off: even after they died, they didn't think they were dead and went on like it didn't happen.
In Sourcery, the Genie uses this to travel through the sky in the lamp while Nijel is also holding it. The trick is not to draw too much attention to it (by thinking or talking about it) so that physics doesn't catch up with its impossibility.
In Going Postal, at the end of the initiation trial that the old postmen run for Moist, they sic several massive dogs upon him, whom he recognizes from their bark as Lipwigzer dogs—which his grandfather raised. He handles the challenge with perfect confidence by using the commands that all purebred Lipwigzers are trained... only to learn afterward that they were not Lipwigzers at all, but Ankh-Morpork junkyard dogs, with no Lipwig training whatsoever. Since he thought he was safe, they couldn't smell fear on him.
Raising Steam has the steam train "Iron Girder" essentially fly across a rickety bridge, supported only by mist and fog, because Moist convinces Simnel that it can (which turns out to be a subversion, because Moist has secretly made a temporary living ... or whatever ... bridge out of the Ankh-Morpork golems that the mist and fog prevent anyone from seeing).
The Light Fantastic: Taken Up to Eleven with the Druids' method of assembling stone circles: convincing the 50-tonne megaliths that they can fly and then riding them to the construction site before they can remember that they are, in fact, giant hunks of rock.

The Powerpuff Girls
Professor Utonium kind of is this Trope. Every time he invents something useful, he does so by accident. (This includes the Girls, by the way, as described in the show's opening sequence.) He can't seem to do anything useful on purpose, however. (It's probably not a good idea to mention the Dynamo, something he did invent on purpose. It was a disaster, to say the least.)
Bubbles managed to get 1075 on a scantron test in "Him Diddle Riddle" by drawing a flower on it.note Though it is implied that Bubbles actually figured out the trick by listening to Him's Exact Words. Him said that the test was based on their current educational level; the girls are in kindergarten.

In The Licanius Trilogy, Davian's initial journey is full of unbelievably lucky coincidences. That's because he managed to the full suite of his Augur powers without knowing that they even exist.

In the Goldsmith questline of Final Fantasy XIV, the Warrior of Light tries to repair a mammet with a Black Pearl Ring they recently crafted. They know literally nothing about mammet construction and this action makes zero sense, but it works anyway because the mammet ends up getting Insulted Awake at the prospect of having their creation in his body.

In the Worgen starting zone in World of Warcraft, your character is stuck in Worgen-form and unable to change back and forth at will until near the end of the zone's story, when the Night Elves give you the means. Well before that point, however, one of your quests involves getting senile old Grandma Wahl to evacuate in the wake of the Cataclysm. In the course of the quests, you see her transform into a Worgen and attack an enemy that was threatening her cat. Upon returning to her to turn in the quest, she's returned to human. Grandma Wahl apparently controls the curse by virtue of being too dotty to realize she's even a Worgen in the first place, let alone that she's supposed to be Shapeshifter Mode Locked.

My Hero Academia:
In the My Hero Academia: Two Heroes movie, the young heroes attend a party on the lower levels of a 200-story tall tower with state-of-the-art security. Once both the party and the security system is hijacked by terrorists, they have to race to the top floor using the stairs, since the lifts are blocked by the system. On the 80th floor, they end up cornered by two of the terrorists. All seems lost, until Bakugo, Kirishima and Todoroki step in and help hold the villains back. How did they manage to get there right on the nick of time? Up to that point, they were unaware of the terrorist attack: They ran late to the party, and got so hopelessly lost on the tower that they somehow ended up almost halfway up the tower ahead of the team that actually wanted to go up.

In Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Sherman and Penny are in Leonardo da Vinci's workshop and find his flying machine, and Penny urges Sherman to take it for a joy ride. With her "Just do it!" encouragement, Sherman gets it airborne and is actually piloting it with skill until Mr. Peabody sees them and reminds Sherman that he doesn't know how to fly. The instant Sherman hears this, he freaks out, loses control and crashes it.

In The Great Train Robbery, the last part of Edward Pierce's plan to get to the gold requires him to climb along the top of a speeding train, and the revelation that he successfully did so causes an uproar in the courtroom. Although he spouts some poorly understood science about a slipstream preventing him from falling off, actual experts dismiss this as nonsense and decide that the only way he got away with it is because he had no idea it should have killed him.

Homestuck:
While not stupid by any means, Sollux still managed to walk out of a dream bubble and come back to life simply because he didn't realize you weren't supposed to do that. Later turns out to be an aversion: he was never fully dead to begin with, and it was perfectly within the rules to leave.
Eridan managed to completely drive the angels in the Land of Wrath and Angels to extinction, despite them being nigh-unkillable NPCs that each take at least a minute's worth of sustained fire from Ahab's Crosshairs to kill and don't drop anything like enemies do...because they aren't enemies, they're game constructs, and you aren't supposed to attack them.

In an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Aquaman uses his ability to control aquatic creatures to take command of... silverfish. The Atom points out that silverfish are insects, but ends up shrugging it off with a Sure, Let's Go with That after Aquaman cheerfully responds that "a fish is a fish." This is itself a Call-Back to their first meeting, in which Aquaman used his powers in a "Fantastic Voyage" Plot to command a lymphocyte. This gave Ryan a Twitchy Eye.

Toon:
Steve Jackson Games' role-playing system, which takes place in a cartoon universe, gives appropriately cartoony reasons for being able to do this sort of thing. If a character wants to walk off a cliff and on thin air or breathe underwater or whatever, he can roll to intentionally try to fail an intelligence roll. If he fails, it's considered that he's too dumb to realize it's impossible. This is a reference to all the times cartoon characters do just that. It's actually considered a law of Toon Physics that gravity does not affect a character until they realize it's supposed to. This is demonstrated in an episode of Tiny Toon Adventures.
The "Star Toon" setting in the Tooniversal Tour Guide sourcebook features the Bozonians, an alien race so monumentally stupid they can build outlandish architectural wonders and incredible scientific devices because they're too dumb to realize the things they build should be impossible. Visitors to their home planet of Bozok are strictly forbidden because all it would take is one smart-ass telling the locals "That's impossible!" to bring down a civilization.

Done in Dinoverse with the help of a Sentient Cosmic Force. Bertram builds a machine for the Science Fair which has a simple function—play different randomized videos on screens while hooked up to suction cups on someone's head—but he wants people to think it's showing their dreams, so he builds something massive out of junk salvaged from tech shops. Somehow it turns into a Time Machine. Later it's shown that throughout the multiverse people have been building devices that do the same thing, and Betram must repair a broken one without tools while in the body of a Dilophosaur.

Atomic Robo:
Why can giant ants exist despite the Square-Cube Law? Because they don't know there's a square cube law.
At one point, one character thwarts an invasion of vampires from another dimension by using a plan that depended on the use of a Xenon laser. When he explains this, Robo informs him that the laser he used was not, in fact, a Xenon laser, and he doesn't think their facility even has one, leaving the guy baffled about how his plan worked.
Taken to its extremes by Dr. Dinosaur, whose inventions just plain don't make sense even within the context of a comic that once used the Large Hadron Collider as a proton cannon. This causes extreme frustration in Robo, who gets to watch the laws of reality bend into pretzel shapes because of a delusional dromaeosaurid inverting gravity with a spanner, a lightbulb, two car batteries, and a broken calculator.

Everfound gives us an odd variation combined with Reality Warper. The ruler of the City of Souls is sometimes known as "The Unremembering King" due to his ability to "unremember things". How this works is if the king says he does not remember something, then it ceases to exist. For example, he doesn't remember that Afterlights with red hair aren't parrots, so they sprout red parrot wings. He doesn't remember not being a powerful Mayan king, so he becomes one. As he fell toward the center of the earth, he tried to save himself by not remembering there ever being a direction such as "down"—so he was teleported instantly to the only place where there is, in effect, no "down"—the center of the earth.

The Order of the Stick:
Elan has fallen into this a time or two, to the point that Daigo has theorized that Elan is of more use in a given situation the less he understands what is going on. On one particular occasion, Elan managed to invoke this trope. When face to face with his Evil Twin Nale, Nale is surprised that Elan thought he was dead. As a Genre Savvy bard, he should've known that a villain is never dead if they Never Found the Body, and half the time not even then. Elan counters that the hero always thinks the villain is dead until he shows up again.
A rogue once managed to land a sneak attack against Haley because he didn't realize that she had Improved Uncanny Dodge, which makes her immune to sneak attacks by characters with less levels than her. When this was pointed out, she was instantly healed of the damage inflicted.
When Redcloak battled a fellow priest in Azure city, the priest got hit with a Destruction spell. He asked Redcloak if his Saving Throw result was good enough to survive the attack, then promptly died when it wasn't. Later on, we see him waiting in line in the afterlife, and he realizes that he calculated the Save wrong and should have survived after all.
Blackwing intentionally invokes this to good effect. In need of magic, he manages to find a scroll of Vaarsuvius's, and while he recognizes that it's a harmless Divination spell, his complete inability to properly activate it causes an explosive Magic Misfire — which is exactly what he needs at the moment.
The heroes are having an argument while they are riding their horses (and riding dog) when Elen interrupts to remind everyone that they had left their mounts behind earlier, which causes the mounts to vanish out from under them. So they had been riding on mounts that didn't exist because they forgot that they didn't have them anymore until the Plot Hole was pointed out.
In one of the early strips, Durkon miscalculates his to-hit rolls against an enemy. When Roy and the enemy in question correct his to-hit score, wounds appear on the enemy. When they help him calculate his damage, the wounds grow increasingly severe until the enemy concludes "that puts me at negative health" and drops dead.

Author Mario Puzo admitted that when he adapted his 1969 novel The Godfather to a screenplay for the first two installments of the film trilogy, he had no idea what he was doing, having had no prior experience or instruction in screenplay writing. After The Godfather and The Godfather Part II netted him one Oscar each for Best Adapted Screenplay, Puzo decided to properly learn the trade and obtained a starter's book on how to write a screenplay; the first chapter read, "study Godfather I."

In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the Dragonborn can admit to the leader of the Greybeards that they have no idea how they are able to use the Thu'um, they just do. Arngeir explains that Dragonborn are unique in that they can instantly learn new Words of Power, which would take normal people years or decades to master if they can even do so at all. It's around that point in the game that you stop gaining new Thu'um words easily and have to actually work for them.

Metal Gear
In Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, if Snake calls up Otacon and complains about seasickness, Otacon will suggest he take pentazemin (a fictional form of benzodiazepine he normally uses to reduce hand tremors while sniping). He does, and his seasickness goes away. A surprised Otacon reveals he suggested the pentazemin as a placebo effect and there was no way it should have worked. It also doubles as a case of Accidentally Correct Writing as drugs from the Benzodiazepine class actually do treat motion sickness and Mal de Debarquement, presumably by suppressing central vestibular responses.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater: OK, so Snake collects various plants and animals, which he can call Para-Medic to identify. At the same time, he carries around night-vision goggles and other various things which require battery power. When he collects a species of bio-luminescent mushrooms, he assumes that, because they glow, eating them will "recharge [his] batteries". This works even though Para-Medic specifically told him it was impossible; Snake's ignorance is just that good. Calling back Para-Medic after eating these mushrooms leads to a fun conversation between her and Sigint about the placebo effect.

Played for laughs in Persona 4, where the Investigation Team has a cooking competition in which they make an omelette for Nanako. When it's Yukiko's turn to present hers, Kanji tastes it to make sure that won't harm Nanako... but he doesn't taste anything. He expresses how it's amazing how Yukiko put a lot of ingredients in the omelette only for it to have no flavor, but she chalks it up to Kanji's palate not being refined.

Xanth makes this an actual magical power. Princess Ida's power of "idea" makes any idea suggested to her come true if it's thought up by someone who's not aware that this is her power. Several plot points are solved by Ida or someone else who knows how her power works purposefully leading an unwitting third party into coming up with a possible solution, which Ida's power can then make real. Ida herself did not know about her talent for quite some time, with the result that every idea she had coming true until she learned the nature of her power. Even the fact that Ida is a long-lost princess (and an identical twin to the previously-established Princess Ivy) was suggested by someone who simply thought that it was the sort of thing that usually happens in these stories, thus possibly making the whole thing something that her powers retconned into being.

Undertale:
At one point in the game, Sans moves his sentry station from Snowdin to Hotland (the hottest area in the game) to sell hot dogs. Despite this, his station still has snow on it. Why? He was too lazy to clean it off.
The game is this in-universe, as the Annoying Dog, actually the game's creator Toby Fox, is shown to have made a "fairly decent video game just by barking into a translator".
In the Pacifist ending, Napstablook turns out to be the only one who wasn't drawn into Asriel's massive soul steal. How'd they avoid it? They simply closed the blinds and continued doing their usual activities.

Schlock Mercenary:
Tagon promotes Schlock two ranks to Sergeant when Schlock manages to distract the boarders and allow the company to retake the ship. When Schlock admits he had no plan and just got lucky, Tagon reconsiders and just promotes him one rank to Corporal.
While Captain Tagon is smarter than he looks, he's also really lucky, so this shows up a lot.
Sorlie is an excellent spy primarily because she is a genuinely nice person who gets on well with people and isn't a trained spy. As such, people tend not to be on guard around her, which means she finds out things that an actual spy would not. Bala-Amin is happy to take advantage of this.

Rimmer is advised to invoke this trope in the episode "Cassandra", being told that if he doesn't know enough to know that he doesn't know enough, there's no fear holding him back.
At the beginning of that season, Rimmer mentioned that anyone who couldn't fix the drive plate had to have a brain the size of a newt's testicle. Apparently, it's really, really hard to botch the job.

The move Amnesia, which boosts Special Defense, seems to work this way. Explicitly stated in Pokémon Adventures, where Lorelei says it works by allowing a Pokémon to ignore damage by forgetting that it took damage. She implies, however, that this is a temporary thing, and eventually all this "forgotten" damage will catch up and overwhelm the Pokémon, which is a facet of the move that doesn't exist in the games.

Dragon Ball Z Abridged:
Goku is able to obtain a blueberry muffin during a space voyage because of his deluded belief that there's a button which makes muffins onboard the spaceship (despite being repeatedly told earlier there wasn't one). In the 21st episode, the power of the muffin button allows him to read minds. It's implied later that the Muffin Button may have actually been real, since Goku finds a muffin button on Freeza's ship when Namek is exploding. The Muffin Button in Goku's pod was a leftover bit of technology from when it was one of Freeza's.
Dr.Gero apparently has no idea how he put his brain inside his android body which he immediately questions himself when 18 asks this.

Lightsong from Warbreaker is the grand master of an extremely complicated game he doesn't actually know the rules of. At one point someone remarks on how innovative his tactics are and how they would never have thought to use that ball for that throw; Lightsong does not mention that he picked it because it was the same color as his drink and threw it onto the field completely at random.

Tsukuyomi from Infinity has no problems solving impossible theorems, conjectures and postulates of math thanks to advanced technology downloaded into her, and afterward she simply says that she hoped she passed. She can also whip up a mean feast. But her best talent is probably being a painter. Probably, because beautiful paintings appear out of nowhere in her presence, but nobody remembers her painting them, not even her.

Also in Fire Emblem Fates, when Odin was first hired as Leo's retainer, Leo sent Odin to find things that didn't exist and to do things that were thought to be impossible. Odin, being Odin, somehow managed to complete every task Leo assigned him. Even after he learned that Leo intended for these missions to be impossible, Odin replied that he 'liked' the "impossible" missions.

In One-Punch Man, Saitama 100% honestly believes that his absolutely insane levels of strength, speed, and durability came from sticking to a daily training regimen of 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats, and 10 kilometers of running for three years straight. When his "student" Genos points out that that's just mundane strength training (and not even a very difficult level of it, either) and demands to know what his real secret is, Saitama responds "Look, you might not believe me, but that's really all I did." The series eventually suggests that Saitama broke some kind of internal "limiter" during those three years, which is the real answer for his abilities (and his Premature Baldness).

In CRISIS: Equestria, Insipid's magic has elements of this. Insipid has the ability of Power Copying, but is an idiot who doesn't know how the powers she steals are supposed to work. Yet she's usually more powerful than the original because she lacks their limitations. For example, she once beat Shadow Step — who is supposed to be magically invulnerable — by using her Power Copying to take the invulnerability from him entirely, even though that isn't how her powers should have worked.

Dungeons & Dragons:
Shadow Conjuration spells summon things that function as real if the defender fails to disbelieve in them. Normally, they are used offensively, but when used defensively, the recipient has to choose to ignore knowing that he knows it's not real in order for it to be real enough to give him or her the full benefit.
With the right Prestige Class combination, disbelieving makes it more than 100% real.
Psionics in 3.X had a rather bizarre meta example based on how people played them. Since Psionic Characters used a pool of points rather than Vancian Spell Slots, their powers were enhanced by pumping a power with more points, either by raising the parameters in the power (Eg: 1 point per 1d6 extra damage with Energy Ray) or by powering their metamagics. A common phenomena in the game was known as "Going Nova" where a Psionic character would hoard their power points until the big boss and then pump them all into a single power to deal absurd amounts of damage and end the fight quickly. This gave rise to a false reputation of Psionic Classes being overpowered and many people issued house rules to "Cap" their power... except there was already a Balancing Factor to this built into the game: Psionic characters could not spend more points on a power than their current manifester level. In other words, it was mistakenly labeled as overpowered because players didn't read the rules carefully enough. This phenomenon was so widespread that a popular house rule was implementing the limits that they already had. In fact, when Dreamscarred Press released their Psionics Books, they made sure to label this limit "The Golden Rule of Psionics" and repeat in several times throughout the book just to make sure people actually read it this time.

In Daily Equestria Life with Monster Girl, the true extent of earth pony magic is concealed by a massive race-wide conspiracy, causing all non-earth ponies to believe that the earth ponies are limited to enhanced strength and the Cornicopia Effect. Cerea, however, isn't from Equestria, never learned that earth ponies have no true magic, and as such is easily able to figure out what their magic is really capable of.

The World of Darkness:
Mage: The Ascension: This is a very real thing at a collective level — because reality is strongly defined by what people think it is, a sufficient portion of humanity not knowing or believing that something is impossible or has certain consequences can very much alter reality to make this belief correct.
The ignorant and blind Sleepers — that is, all of non-mage humanity — constantly keep the terrible demons, gods, monsters, etc at bay, and away from our tasty souls, day in and day out. This is done through the amazing, awe-inspiring power... of disbelieving and desperately ignoring that these things could possibly exist.
Clever mages can get around disbelief by convincing sleepers that there is a logical explanation and it's not magic they're seeing. A true mage posing as a stage magician could get away with separating their lovely assistant in half for real so long as the audience stays convinced that there's a hidden trick for them to try guessing, or giving scientific-sounding technobabble for an impossible device.
It works even better to play on the staggering ignorance of the general population. Things that should only work in action movies are a great way to disguise magic that static reality would otherwise reject, mainly because most people aren't bright enough to know it isn't possible. A can of hairspray and a lighter is enough to make basic fire effects coincidental, even if the resultant stream of fire outclasses any actual flamethrower in power. It's suggested that the unrealistic aspects of popular fiction are deliberate attempts to subvert the dominant paradigm.
Vampire: The Masquerade: Creating new vampiric powers is supposed to be something only very old and powerful vampires can manage. However, the weak 14th and 15th generation vampires seem to be able to do it with ease. They grew up on stories that said, for example, that vampires could fly; therefore, they managed to find the magic that let them do it, simply because they were too unimportant for elder vampires to explain to them that it was impossible.

In Dwarf Fortress's Adventure Mode, the greatest challenge an adventurer can do is to take on a Vault, a structure guarded by Angels and holding a slab inscribed with the true name of a demon. This is ridiculously difficult, and the conventional wisdom is that you need to be a Legendary adventurer armed with adamantine to even have a chance. This thread chronicles a newbie player who finds a vault, doesn't know what it is, and asks the forums... and meanwhile killing his way through the place while wearing goose leather armor. And being confused about their advice because he was so green that he didn't know what "candy" and "clown" meant in the fandom. Oh, and the adventurer survived, got the slab, turned into a wererhino to heal the ridiculous amount of damage she'd taken, and got some sweet armor out of the whole thing. The slab turned out to be useless as the demon whose name was inscribed there was killed by a roc in the backstory- the same roc that killed the player's previous three adventurers, in fact.

Fallout 4:
The Idiot Savant perk proves sometimes it's better to be lucky than wise! It gives you a random chance to gain triple EXP from any action, with this chance increasing the lower your Intelligence is. The upgraded version of this gives a quintuple EXP bonus (that's 5 times higher), and the final version brings the bonus back down to three times but also gives triple EXP for subsequent actions taken for a time.
Even the modding community of the game ran away with that trope, using Idiot Savant as a requirement for doing stuff that would make even the most Psycho-laced bandit question their sanity. For example, building a crossbreed minigun slash assault rifle chambered for shotgun shells!
If you're stumped by a locked container, Dogmeat can be commanded to "fetch" the contents, regardless of difficulty.
Sierra Petrovita reappears in the Nuka-World DLC as an excited tourist at the park. Said park has been completely overrun with bloodthirsty Raider gangs, yet Sierra happily gushes and squees over the park attractions with only some token annoyance from the various raiders she encounters. The suggestion is that the raiders didn't simply turn her into a decoration because they all assumed that someone higher up the chain is allowing her to roam around freely, and they do that because she shows absolutely no fear around them and acts like she's supposed to be there.

In Equal Rites, Esk teleports something without a counterweight and was able to do it because she didn't know it was impossible because she hadn't been formally taught. It does, however, have consequences later. As well as a possible explanation being given: any wizard could do that, but doing so greatly increases the chances of something going very, very wrong in transit, leading to wizards who know better never trying it.

In Going Postal, at the end of the initiation trial that the old postmen run for Moist, they sic several massive dogs upon him, whom he recognizes from their bark as Lipwigzer dogs—which his grandfather raised. He handles the challenge with perfect confidence by using the commands that all purebred Lipwigzers are trained... only to learn afterward that they were not Lipwigzers at all, but Ankh-Morpork junkyard dogs, with no Lipwig training whatsoever. Since he thought he was safe, they couldn't smell fear on him.

Shaman King:
This trope is used to explain why it is that a bunch of kids are being sent to stop the reincarnated antagonist who has spent nearly a thousand years training in hell to become more powerful and recently is on the verge of merging with God/The Great Spirit. Essentially, the adults have hit the barrier where they begin to realize there are limitations. The kids are too young/stupid to realize there are limitations yet.
Harsher in Hindsight strikes in the sequel manga, the cast has grown and DOES realize their limitation, unable to change the world in the slightest, which means Hao wins not only the tournament but also the bet. Rosseau was wrong?

In the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon, Presto rarely managed to pull what he needed out of his hat, but somehow, he and the other heroes often managed to solve the crisis with what he did conjure up. For example, in one episode, the heroes were up against a group of giant iron statues, and he managed to produce a cannon - but when he tried to come up with ammunition for it, all he managed were ball bearings. Fortunately, all but one of the statues slipped on them and fell, while Bobby managed to use his club to catapult the cannon itself into the last one, smashing it to pieces.

Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (originally part of The Little White Bird) is somewhere between this and Clap Your Hands If You Believe. As you should know, babies used to be birds. Peter Pan, at one week old, flies away from his home because he doesn't yet realize that little boys can't fly. Upon reaching Kensington Gardens he first begins to doubt whether he will be able to fly again, at which point he loses the ability. He does later get it back with the help of the fairies, though.

Galaxy Quest:
The Thermians construct a fully functional, space-worthy Starship, complete with powerful weapons, Warp Drive, and Teleportation, based on the design of a ship seen in "Historical Documents" intercepted from space. Unbeknownst to them, these "Historical Documents" were actually episodes from the TV Series Galaxy Quest, broadcast from Earth by humans not remotely capable of producing these technologies. It's important to note that this also included the Omega-13, an alien device that was not part of the original ship schematics and that nobody even knew what function it had, only educated (and conflicting) guesses.
Nesmith actually manages to defeat the Big Bad in the first act of the film, while he still believes that he's on a television show. Wanting to end the "show" as quickly as possible because of his hangover, he orders an immediate attack that takes the villain completely by surprise. Unfortunately, he promptly leaves, allowing the villain to recover and come back later.

Princess of the Blacks:
Most transfigurations require a specific spell that's designed to turn one designated object into another designated object. However, there is a type known as "free transfiguration" which is a spell designed to turn anything into anything else but requires in-depth knowledge of both the beginning and end materials. Jen finds out in fifth year she's been doing the latter her whole life.
Voldemort swore himself to Nyarlathotep and became a soul mage without any inkling of either, partly because Nyarlathotep is the only Power that doesn't inform his followers of what they've become. He had simply created horcruxes in an attempt to make himself immortal.

In Fantastic Four, this has been used as an explanation for why Reality Warper Franklin Richards is so much more powerful as a young child than various adult versions of him (introduced via Time Travel) have been: he doesn't realize that all of the things he's doing are impossible. An adult Franklin who actually understands the laws of physics needs to think of ways to work around them, even though based on the way his powers work that's only a psychological limitation.

In RuneScape there is a Ga'al (a Tzhaar born without memories) who used magic to hide himself, but hid himself too well and got stuck, and only appears when certain conditions are met which the game doesn't give any clues about. If you ask him what runes he used for the spell, he will say that he didn't use any runes. Your character will point out that this is impossible, and he will say that nobody told him that.
When you ask the blacksmith Oziach about rune armor, he tells you he will sell you some if you slay the dragon Elvarg, who destroyed an entire nation of wizards on her own and has been untouched ever since. He expects that the ridiculous Impossible Task will make you leave him alone. Long story short...

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality:
Inverted, as appropriate for a story where clear thinking rather than ignorance is a source of power. Harry lists out all the laws of wizardry describing things you can't do, and looks for restrictions that would sound plausible to wizards ignorant of science, but make no sense from a scientific standpoint. Harry zeroes in on the law saying that you can't Transfigure parts of whole objects — because as a Muggle knows, every whole object is made of individual atoms!
A more standard version of the trope is invoked in Ch. 59, where Harry suddenly realizes that broomsticks run on Aristotelian physics — they just go where you point them, rather than continuing under their prior momentum and accelerating in the new direction pointed — presumably because the witch who invented them had never heard of Newtonian mechanics. (Which is a severe problem if you're an excellent pilot on standard broomsticks, and you've just ignited a powerful rocket, which does run on Newtonian mechanics, attached to your broomstick.)

Gundam:
In Gundam Build Fighters, when China tries her hand and building a Gunpla and finds herself in a Gunpla battle, she defeats her main rival due to the fact she stuffed her Gunpla, Bearguy III, with cotton, helping to absorb the shock of an otherwise fatal attack. She didn't do this as a deliberate strategy, she did it to adhere to Bearguy's backstory of being a stuffed animal turned into a robot.
Similarly, the instruction papers for Gundam Build Divers's Momokapool Gunpla reveal that Momoka's desire to turn a Kapool into a penguin-themed Gunpla lead to the suit being a lot more stronger and durable. She didn't care much for a "strong" Gunpla, she just wanted a cute Gunpla.

In the I Am Weasel episode "Law of Gravity", I.R. Baboon was actually able to defy gravity up until the point that he actually gets to read the actual Law of Gravity. Later on, Baboon destroys the Law... and every lawyer on Earth starts floating helplessly in mid-air. Weasel explains it only affects lawyers because they're the only ones who understand the law.

Professor Arc: Jaune managed to greatly impress Cinder during their first official meeting with his complete nonchalance towards her and her implied threats, together with the fact that she just can't figure out his real intentions. This only happened because a) he was too inexperienced with shady deals (to say nothing about women) to pick out most of their conversation's subtext, b) his lack of Huntsman training prevented him from even noticing that Cinder was threatening to attack him in the first place and c) there is no way to figure out a plan that simply doesn't exist.

Game Grumps and Steam Train:
When engaging in a Games Grumps Vs. match, Jon often does better going in blind, which frustrates Arin to no end.
When the guys played Trine 2 on Steam Train, Ross attempted to solve any and all problems by conjuring boxes, and in so doing actually bypassed several puzzles that would otherwise have required actual problem solving. In response, the developers sent him some swag, including a certificate of excellence in the art of boxing from Amadeus the wizard.
On Jon's own channel, JonTron, this happens quite a lot, by way of managing to play games inserting them into the wrong consoles. Or the wrong machines entirely. And playing episodes of Goosebumps by inserting the books into a console. In his Titenic (sic) video he plugs the correct cartridges into the correct console, but then submerges the console in a fish tank before playing it. He also somehow manages to recut a total disaster of an episode into something actually good in post-editing, apparently just by pushing a couple of buttons on his FitBit.
For half of the playthrough of Punch-Out!! for the Wii, Danny did not know that he could duck or regain health. Instead, he developed ridiculous timing skills that allowed him to exploit brief moments of vulnerability before his opponents could hit him with moves he thought were unblockable.
During their playthrough of Besiege Ross keeps building utterly ludicrous kill-machines like a "tank" that literally just drives around spinning a big arm in an attempt to kill enemy soldiers. The soldiers effortlessly overwhelm it, smash the arm off rendering it helpless, and proceed to bust it to shreds... which hurls it into a mine, blows it apart, and ignites all the scattered pieces which in turn kill enough of the soldiers to complete the level. Naturally Ross is completely blown away by this.

In Mass Effect Human Revolution, Conrad Verner, resident incompetent Butt-Monkey and fanboy of the main characters, assembles a huge network of freelance mercenaries, repeatedly pulls off dangerous missions, and manages to even infiltrate an enemy frigate, sabotage it from the inside by accident, and then save everyone on board the ship. How does he do this? He found an original copy of a Shadowrun sourcebook and assumed it was a historical document, and then proceeded to follow it almost to the letter, not realizing it was a role-playing game.

Alcatraz Series:
Smedry Talents often have a subtext of this. Generally, the Smedrys can turn being very bad at one thing (for example, dancing), into being really good at something else (like fighting). Aydee Ecks Smedry's power in particular is being extraordinarily bad at math, so that she can, for example, believe that if you have one each of the three kinds of exploding teddy bear (It Makes Sense in Context), then that's six teddy bears total, making 3 extra appear.
Alcatraz was raised in the Hushlands, making Free Kingdomer magic and technology equally arcane to him. Since he is more skeptical about common axioms (technology is defined as something anyone can use and magic is restricted to certain people), he can make connections nobody else can, like Smedry Talents are the same as Lenses.

Goofy refers to this phenomenon on an episode of Goof Troop. Pete wants to steal Goofy's cat, Waffles, as part of some scheme. So he convinces Goofy that Waffles is allergic to the color of Goofy's house. When Max's encyclopedia declares that cats are colorblind, Goofy shrugs it off: "Maybe Waffles hasn't read that book."

In the My Hero Academia: Two Heroes movie, the young heroes attend a party on the lower levels of a 200-story tall tower with state-of-the-art security. Once both the party and the security system is hijacked by terrorists, they have to race to the top floor using the stairs, since the lifts are blocked by the system. On the 80th floor, they end up cornered by two of the terrorists. All seems lost, until Bakugo, Kirishima and Todoroki step in and help hold the villains back. How did they manage to get there right on the nick of time? Up to that point, they were unaware of the terrorist attack: They ran late to the party, and got so hopelessly lost on the tower that they somehow ended up almost halfway up the tower ahead of the team that actually wanted to go up.

The Wheel of Time:
Nynaeve instinctively reinvents a form of Healing which uses all Powers instead of just Air, Water, and Spirit. The Aes Sedai of the Third Age are all adamant that this is dangerous and are shocked it even works, never mind that it actually works better. This is a running theme in regards to the Aes Sedai, that much of what they can and can't do is limited largely by tradition. That and a massive lack of initiative and imagination. The veil of general secrecy inherent within the White Tower is to blame for much of what was lost, with certain Aes Sedai not finding students they could trust to pass their skills on to and consequently taking their knowledge with them.
In tel'aran'rhiod, Perrin blocks a beam of the supposedly irresistible force of balefire with the palm of his hand as if it were nothing, leaving Egwene aghast, telling him what he's just done should be impossible. Perrin, who didn't even know what balefire was a moment before, merely shrugs. It's likely that if she'd tried to do the same thing, it would have been impossible because Your Mind Makes It Real and she's used to dealing with balefire in the waking world where it really is impossible to withstand. In Dream Land, though, it's no different than anything else and can be made or unmade on a whim... as long as you believe it can.

Kill Six Billion Demons: The in-comic religion outright extols this trope as a virtue. Two particular examples:
In the comic proper, Allison successfully re-binds Vladok by shoving a mask on its not-face and shouting names at it, to the utter shock of everyone present.
In the lore, Pree Aesma managed to defeat the three greatest disciples of YISUN, the Masters of Space, Aesthetics and Ethics, essentially by being too ignorant to learn their teachings and throwing violent temper tantrums whenever she got frustrated. It is because of her scheming, vile, ignorant nature — and because she is always trying to improve herself, unlike YISUN's more self-satisfied disciples — that YISUN names Aesma his greatest disciple, the Master of Want.

Mike Flores developed his now-famous bass technique by accident; as a child, he was trying to learn guitar but kept losing guitar privileges whenever his parents grounded him, so he picked up his father's bass (which couldn't be taken away) instead and tried to emulate using a pick with his fingers instead of plucking. This was well before one could readily access instruction videos to find out how the pros did it, so he essentially just played in a way that made sense to him. This technique was, by conventional standards, totally wrong, but he didn't know this and became so proficient with it that there was no point in trying to learn how to play correctly, as he could play circles around just about everyone with it.

Vanilla Ice from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, when stabbed through the throat multiple times and having his head twisted around 180 degrees, claims he 'doesn't have time to die' and keeps on fighting as if he weren't injured at all. In reality, Dio has made him a vampire, though Ice himself doesn't realize this and continues to believe he's resisting death through pure willpower until Polnareff lures him into a sunbeam and he begins to disintegrate.

Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 has Mareeta learning the Astra skill in this manner. Upon meeting with a man claiming to be the great swordsman Shannan, she asks him to teach her his signature technique, and he decides to give her some spiritualistic advice and tell her that she needs to look inside herself to become a true swordmaster. A few minutes of sword practice, self-reflection, and meditation later, and she's worked it out. What puts it into this trope is that "Shannan" was actually Shannam, a charlatan and a mediocre swordsman who doesn't know how to use Astra at all, and his "training" was just him bullshitting an answer to get her to go away. Mareeta simply didn't realize that learning how to use Astra because of some generic advice and introspection should be impossible.

Tweedledope is a member of a group of villains called the Crazy Gang who can somehow create Applied Phlebotinum by just tinkering with junk. No doubt the most miraculous piece of machinery he created this way was the sentient portal-creating robot Widget. It should be noted that Widget's sentience derived from the amnesiac and temporally displaced mind of Kate Pryde, the Days of Future Past version of Kitty Pryde (it takes a very long time for Widget, let alone else, to figure this out), and later examination suggested that there's a mystical element involved.

Dashie Games: Towards the end of Dashie's playthrough of Life Is Strange Episode 2: Out Of Time, he gets to the part where Max tries to convince Kate not to commit suicide. The point is, he has no prior knowledge of this. The decisions he chooses is "Things will get better," "It was in silent mode," "I'm gathering proof," "Be strong," "Your mother," and finally, because Dashie knows someone named Matthew and that it was 11:30 at this point, "Matthew 11:28." After all of these decisions due to having no prior knowledge and no walkthrough to guide him as a result, in the end, Dashie ultimately ends up saving Kate. Due to his success in this, Life Is Strange became one of his requested games and it racked up a lot of likes.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods: The God of Destruction, Lord Beerus, comes to Goku and friends looking for the "Super Saiyan God". According to a prophetic dream, this person will become Beerus' rival. Goku tries to fight Beerus when they first meet, but Goku's stongest form is beaten by a flick to the forehead and a chop to the neck. We learn that the Super Saiyan God is a form a Saiyan can assume with some help from 5 other pure-hearted saiyans. Goku transforms and finds he can now stand up to Beerus, but is disappointed that he got this power from his friends and not from his own training. That is, until Beerus points out that halfway through the fight the transformation wore off, but Goku continued fighting just fine anyway, having acclimated to the use of divine energy.

In an Archie Comics story, the klutzy Archie loses his memory following an athletic mishap. Reggie toys with him by telling him he's the school's champion athlete, expecting that Archie will humiliate himself, only to be astonished when Archie proceeds to accomplish incredible athletic feats, such as a record-breaking pole vault without using a pole. When Archie throws a javelin beyond school property, accidentally puncturing a guy's tire, he gets a memory-restoring punch in the head and reverts to his usual clumsiness.

In Tremors 2: Aftershocks, the subterranean, wormlike Graboids move into a new biological phase: three foot tall, bipedal, raptor-like beings nicknamed "Shriekers". When the Shriekers disable a car on the road out of town, (blocking the road) and disable communications by taking down the radio tower, the heroes nearly panic at the implications, especially after having previously seen how clever the Graboids could be. Then they discover that the Shriekers have vision based on seeing heat and are simply attacking anything hot in their way, such as a car engine or a radio tower, and have managed to disable their human opponents purely by chance. As one stunned character says when they find this out "You mean they're acting so smart...because they're so stupid?!"

Edge of Tomorrow is centered around William Cage, an inexperienced soldier who becomes trapped in a "Groundhog Day" Loop after being splattered in alien blood. But how did he get that in the first place? Well, he ran out of ammo, saw a soldier strapping a Claymore to his armor and pulled it towards the alien, not knowing said mine is guaranteed to kill anything within a few feet of it (the soldier was clearly aiming for a suicide attack), meaning the Claymore killed them both, but Cage was splattered with the blood that enables him to revive by looping. In short, he became The Only One capable of defeating the aliens because of being literally Too Dumb to Live!

In All Around Type-Moon, Rin Tohsaka, while learning to use a computer, makes a mistake and summons the player Saber from Fate/EXTRA. Let's reiterate; Rin summoned a Servant from an alternate future, an act of the Second True Magic, simply by being Hopeless with Tech. And at the end of the chapter, she manages to summon the game's other servants.

A gag in The Good Place reveals that every religion and theologian's idea of the afterlife was pretty inaccurate, with most of them getting only about 5-10% right - except for an Erudite Stoner from Calgary, who got really high in the 70s and started rambling about life after death. Somehow, by pure chance, he got over 90% of it right, only to completely forget about it the next morning. He's something of a revered figure in the afterlife as a result.

One Piece is full of this:
In the cover art serial, "Wapol's Omnivorous Rampage", Wapol, having been disposed and now a hobo, uses his Devil Fruit power to eat anything and spit whatever he ate all mixed up to create some toys. A scientist examines one toy and discovers a new alloy. So, by just messing around with his powers, Wapol invented a brand new type of metal that would revolutionize technological progress!
In "Gedatsu's Accidental Blue-Sea Life", Gedatsu is so absent-minded that he forgets about gravity itself and stands on a wall.
In "Eneru's Great Space Mission", Eneru is on the moon (itself a feat, as his "ship" flew by propellers which should not be capable of reaching outer space) blasting stuff with his lightning. He comes across an ancient city, strikes this, and ends up jump-starting the ancient technology by being Trigger Happy.
Papaggu the starfish can act and talk like a person. How? He thought he was human and by the time he realized he wasn't, he was already in the swing of things. Even Luffy didn't understand how that worked.
A rather extreme example regarding how Luffy was declared the "Fifth Emperor" of the Sea and saw his bounty tripled in the aftermath of the Totto Land arc. Their entry into Big Mom's territory, the country of Totto Land, was initially supposed to be a discreet rescue mission for Sanji. Circumstances caused the situation to escalate, which eventually led to the Straw Hats allying with Capone "Gang" Bege in an assassination attempt on Big Mom because Sanji refused to abandon his biological family to their fates. The ensuing chaos that resulted from the Big Mom Pirates chasing them down was then sensationalized by "Big News" Morgans. He took a clusterfuck of a secret rescue operation and subsequent collateral damage as a deliberate assassination attempt and a full-on raid on Big Mom's territory and, in his article on the event, declared Luffy to be the "Fifth Emperor" of the Sea. Essentially, the Straw Hats caused their reputations to skyrocket, to the point of becoming ranked among the most powerful pirate crews in the world, by complete accident, without ever stopping to realize the magnitude of the events that had just transpired because they were in crisis mode or about to die the entire time.
Kin'emon ends up at the brunt of this during Wano when Denjiro compliments his cunning strategy, knowing that there was a traitor in his midst and purposely told him the wrong location to meet for the invasion of Onigashima based on the final message of the deceased Yasuie, which had a subtle clue indicating the true meeting point. Except Kin'emon didn't know there was a traitor, and he legitimately misinterpreted the message.

NewsRadio: A "Flowers for Algernon" Syndrome episode features Matthew, a very stupid person, drinking what he thinks is an intelligence-boosting formula and, because he is so stupid and gullible, he believes it works and therefore it actually does. Until he became smart enough to realize it was only a placebo and immediately reverted back to his old stupid self.

Portal 2:
In Chapters 6 and 7, it's revealed that the man behind Aperture Science, Cave Johnson, was not only insane with mercury poisoning but didn't know anything about how science actually works. It's because he didn't know the limitations of technology that his corporation created physics-breaking inventions like the Portal Gun. Considering the invention of portals was for "possible shower curtain applications", and that he said they were going to "throw science at the wall and see what sticks", this is actually quite likely. It helped that the man didn't think his science should "stand on the shoulders of giants" and instead did everything from the ground up. Problem is, this also meant his test subjects suffered a variety of known hazards.
The Intelligence Dampening Sphere, better known as Wheatley is an AI built with the express purpose of being stupid. However, when he is put in charge of Aperture Science, his lack of knowledge on how the facility works and COMPLETE disregard of property damage makes the test chambers even more lethal than GLaDOS's tests could ever dream of being.

Jared succeeds in using a Level 5 Magikarp as his starter Pokémon, which should be impossible because the only attack Magikarp has at that level is the useless Splash. Jared, however, doesn't understand the basic mechanics of Pokemon battling and instead uses Mr. Fish as a bludgeon, and wins enough battles this way for Mr. Fish to evolve.

For half of the playthrough of Punch-Out!! for the Wii, Danny did not know that he could duck or regain health. Instead, he developed ridiculous timing skills that allowed him to exploit brief moments of vulnerability before his opponents could hit him with moves he thought were unblockable.

The development of X Japan and by extension much of the Visual Kei scene happened as a direct result of this trope: Yoshiki, hide, Taiji, Toshi, and Pata didn't know and didn't care that Glam Rock and Glam Metal were generally thought to be incompatible with Speed Metal and Thrash Metal, how to promote within the Japanese record label and media system of The '80s without upsetting the apple cart of the industry, and much more about how to do metal music "right", and almost all of them aside from Toshi were drunk much of the time. Somehow, this only helped them start the country's most successful and biggest-selling rock/metal band and become the Trope Namer, Trope Maker, and defining band of Visual Kei.

In the 2005 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mike Teavee sees Willy Wonka's Television Chocolate setup as this on Mr. Wonka's part — Mr. Wonka was merely looking for a new way to get his chocolate to market and wound up creating a teleporter without realizing the true significance/potential of such an invention.

According to Touhou lore, Kanako deliberately arranged for the power of nuclear fusion to be given to Utsuho, specifically because the latter was too birdbrained to know that controlling nuclear power was difficult. It worked, though Utsuho became evil for a while. This eventually led to an odd side effect: Utsuho became a savant at nuclear physics, despite still needing examples of how long 100 meters is.

In The Changeling of the Guard, the heroic changeling Idol Hooves explores an entire crypt that's stuffed with ancient booby-traps, completely failing to realize that it's supposed to be dangerous. Part of this is thanks to his Nigh Invulnerable carapace protecting him from Annoying Arrows and the like, but still. This comes as a hell of a shock to Daring Do and Ahuizotl, who are having one of their usual battles over a treasure when Idol obliviously wanders into the middle of it and freaks them both out.

In The Saint short story "The Newdick Helicopter", a Con Man sells a mark plans for a "helicopter" (actually a gyrocopter). When the mark assembles the helicopter, he discovers it cannot take off vertically as he expected it to. Assuming he had put it together wrong, he starts tinkering with it and ends up inventing a fully-functioning helicopter. (Note that this story was published in 1933, several years before the first fully-functioning helicopter was built.)

In the non-canon light novel Jorge Joestar, one of the stories takes place after the universe was reset by the Stand Made in Heaven thirty-six times. Three characters from the original universe have survived through all these resets: Giorno Giovanna, whose Gold Experience Requiem allows him to No-Sell any attack, including the end of the universe, Ultimate Kars, who was on Mars at that point, which was not affected, and... Rohan Kishibe, who managed to No-Sell thirty-six separate Class X-4 Apocalypses simply by being too preoccupied with writing his manga to acknowledge the end of all things. Apparently, if other books of this author, which are noticeably linked to each other, are to be acknowledged, it's more of a case of Clap Your Hands If You Believe, since consciousness-induced spatiotemporal manipulation was a major plot point in the "Disco Detective Wednesday".

A bit into NieR: Automata, you meet a Half-Wit Inventor machine in Pascal's village. He keeps asking you for investment money until you reach about 100,000, which he intends to use to send a rocket to the moon.

Mage: The Ascension: This is a very real thing at a collective level — because reality is strongly defined by what people think it is, a sufficient portion of humanity not knowing or believing that something is impossible or has certain consequences can very much alter reality to make this belief correct.
The ignorant and blind Sleepers — that is, all of non-mage humanity — constantly keep the terrible demons, gods, monsters, etc at bay, and away from our tasty souls, day in and day out. This is done through the amazing, awe-inspiring power... of disbelieving and desperately ignoring that these things could possibly exist.
Clever mages can get around disbelief by convincing sleepers that there is a logical explanation and it's not magic they're seeing. A true mage posing as a stage magician could get away with separating their lovely assistant in half for real so long as the audience stays convinced that there's a hidden trick for them to try guessing, or giving scientific-sounding technobabble for an impossible device.
It works even better to play on the staggering ignorance of the general population. Things that should only work in action movies are a great way to disguise magic that static reality would otherwise reject, mainly because most people aren't bright enough to know it isn't possible. A can of hairspray and a lighter is enough to make basic fire effects coincidental, even if the resultant stream of fire outclasses any actual flamethrower in power. It's suggested that the unrealistic aspects of popular fiction are deliberate attempts to subvert the dominant paradigm.

In the book Fallen Angels, the main character Perry is charged with setting up claymores to provide suppressing fire in a sneak attack on some Vietcong soldiers. Just before the firefight begins, another character sees a Vietnamese soldier sneak out and turn one of the claymores around, but the gunfire starts before he can do anything about it. However, once the fight ends, they realize that none of the claymores fired in their direction. In other words, Perry had set up that particular claymore backward, and the enemy had turned it around again. Especially impressive, given that claymores are labelled This Side Forward.
In Glory Road Oscar Gordon, knowing nothing of hypergeometry, somehow manages to feed Igli to himself, thereby killing the unkillable construct.

The entire premise behind the victory over the Buggers in Ender's Game. Ender was lead to believe that the entire war he fought was just a simulation meant to train him for the actual war. This was done to push him past the Moral Event Horizon and force him to use tactics that would otherwise be unthinkable against a real opponent: total xenocide. Once it's revealed what he did, he broke down into hysteria, stating he never would have done it if he knew it was real.

Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA:
Flight is an advanced magical skill that requires complex calculations to perform. Illya shocks the others by casually doing it just because she watches a lot of anime and thinks magical girls are supposed to be able to fly. Miyu, on the other hand, inverts this — she cannot fly because she thinks it's impossible, despite Illya doing it right in front of her. When Illya tries showing Miyu an anime depicting a flying magical girl, Miyu just points out all the scientific reasons why it shouldn't work.
Later, when Illya's mind is implanted in a plush doll, she is able to make the doll move and speak by intentionally invoking this reasoning.

Peanuts:
Schroeder can play extremely difficult piano pieces on a toy piano where the black keys are simply painted on (or are they...).
Similar to the above-example in Garfield, there was one week-long series where Snoopy and Linus climbed a very large tree to investigate a "strange creature" in Woodstock's nest which turned out to be an egg. Eventually, Lucy came along, and Charlie Brown explained what was going on. Lucy shouted to them that dogs can't climb trees; Snoopy replied, "You're right!" before falling out with a crash.
In early strips where Linus was still shown as an infant, he often displayed this trope. Examples included stacking blocks off-center well past the point they should fall over, and blowing up balloons cube-shaped. While Charlie Brown kept trying to figure out how he did it, Lucy was just embarrassed that her brother didn’t know how to do things right.

In Pippi on the Run, the final Pippi Longstocking movie with Inger Nilsson as the eponymous character, this trope becomes a Running Gag. Over the course of the movie, Pippi does several completely impossible things, and then afterward claims that the reason why she could do them was that she forgot they were impossible. The entire thing is subverted at the very end of the movie when Pippi rides a broomstick around Tommy and Annika's house, and when Annika once again claims that this is impossible, Pippi cheerfully yells back that it's not impossible to her.

During their playthrough of Besiege Ross keeps building utterly ludicrous kill-machines like a "tank" that literally just drives around spinning a big arm in an attempt to kill enemy soldiers. The soldiers effortlessly overwhelm it, smash the arm off rendering it helpless, and proceed to bust it to shreds... which hurls it into a mine, blows it apart, and ignites all the scattered pieces which in turn kill enough of the soldiers to complete the level. Naturally Ross is completely blown away by this.

The title character's player in The Ballad of Edgardo arguably deserves Pantheon status for this trope. When the story's narrator is building his character, he instinctively picks the coolest-sounding stat options without consulting anyone else for advice, and only learns too late from the other players that the abilities he's chosen are considered by the other players to be pathetically underpowered and strategically useless. He'd made a brawler, but fists do zero damage against any kind of armor. He'd set up his stats to give himself a Spirit Cap of five, then picked the Perk "Overflowing Spirit" to remove the cap, not realizing it also locked him out of using elemental attacks, which would at least let his fists do some damage. He was stuck using Raw Spirit, which does far less damage, but cannot be resisted by anything. Those same players learn too late that Edgardo's supposedly useless stat build, thanks to brilliant exploitation of a limited field effect, is actually the most overpowered Game-Breaker in the entire setting. The city of Haven is home to the Spirit Well. While in Haven, your Spirit automatically and instantly recharges "up to the cap." With no cap, Edgardo has literally infinite Spirit to spend on every action, and thus can use Raw Spirit to deal infinite irresistible damage with every punch.

Humans in the Expeditionary Force series are at the very bottom of the technological totem pole and are absolutely helpless against the full might of the hostile species inhabiting the galaxy. Despite that, there are two reasons why they still have a distinct advantage over everyone else: 1.) All technology in the galaxy is based on how each species think reversed-engineered Precursor technology is supposed to work while the main character has befriended a Precursor A.I. who is the only one in the galaxy who knows how Precursor technology is actually supposed to work and 2.) Human scientific and technological knowledge is so laughably ignorant in the grand scheme of things that the main character keeps pointing out workable solutions and coming up with plans that succeed because he doesn't have the knowledge to "know" that such feats were supposed to be impossible. The flabbergasted and begrudging A.I. even comments that this trope must be humanity's hat.

During the first mission in Deus Ex: Human Revolution the player is tasked with disarming a gas bomb, which is quickly counting down. It's possible to fail the hacking mini-game, leaving a player to watch as the gas will detonate killing the civilians. Many players may simply slam or shoot the bomb out of sheer desperation or impatience; only to find out this actually works and successfully disarms the bomb.

In Fairy Tail, Natsu grabs Virgo just as Duke Everlue summons her, resulting in him getting dragged with her to the Celestial Spirit World and then to Everlue's location. Shocked, Lucy asks Natsu how he's still alive, as the Celestial Spirit World's atmosphere has no oxygen so only spirits like Virgo can survive in it. Natsu says he hadn't noticed. Then again, he was only there for a few seconds at most.

The only zombie immune to its knockback entirely is the Jurassic Bully, which as Penny puts it- "is too stupid to observe typical physics", hence becoming immune to the knockback by not knowing that it should be.

Fate/stay night:
Shirou was told that Projection magic was useless, so he stopped pursuing it as his primary magic and simply uses it as a warmup before he tries other types of magic. This is roughly equivalent to performing surgery on someone as a warmup to fixing a radio: painful, dangerous, has little to do with what you're gearing up to do, and something that a non-expert should never do. And no-one is an expert in Projection because it's seen as incredibly difficult and incredibly useless. However, Shirou doesn't know this, so he basically creates matter from nothing, which is supposed to be an impossible feat even in this universe. At best, most people can only keep their projections around for a few minutes and they're of shoddy quality, but Shirou shows the ability to replicate items that never seem to disappear as well as legendary weapons. And he doesn't even realize this is amazing.
To his credit, this isn't entirely an achievement in ignorance so much as it is no-one realizing how Shirou's magic actually works or recognizing that he's doing something other than what it looks like. He has internalized a Reality Marble — basically a cheat in otherwise consistent natural law — that specializes in the knowledge and tracing of swords and sword-like weapons, though he can't properly utilize it due to his poor magecraft skills. Archer calls it Unlimited Blade Works. That said, he didn't only practice Projection with swords—because it's more like he's drawing the blade from inside himself, it could be said that his "Projecting" swords is almost a different form of magic entirely.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater: OK, so Snake collects various plants and animals, which he can call Para-Medic to identify. At the same time, he carries around night-vision goggles and other various things which require battery power. When he collects a species of bio-luminescent mushrooms, he assumes that, because they glow, eating them will "recharge [his] batteries". This works even though Para-Medic specifically told him it was impossible; Snake's ignorance is just that good. Calling back Para-Medic after eating these mushrooms leads to a fun conversation between her and Sigint about the placebo effect.

Tales of the Questor:
Quentyn and his friends put together an absolutely unique magic item using techniques no-one has ever seen before. Subverted in that they're not stupid, but three sheets to the wind at the time. In other words: drunk.
Not only were they responsible for creating perhaps the most powerful magical sword in existence from what should have been the most magically worthless enchantment training sword (think about recording over a cassette tape hundreds of times), they invented new runes to tie all the latent enchantments together, essentially revolutionizing the field.

In Duckman, the title character gets a new adrenal gland from whom he thinks is a world famous stuntman who recently died in a freak accident. This leads to him believing he can do all sorts of monumental stunts and acts of derring-do. And it works...until his partner informs him that the gland came from a dyslexic accountant (and a new adrenal gland wouldn't give one increased strength, balance or flexibility, either). He calls off his latest daring stunt and everything is back to normal.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:
The key to flying is "throwing yourself at the ground and missing": being interrupted mid-fall and forgetting to hit and then—and this is vital—not thinking very hard about how you should be falling. Otherwise gravity will glance sharply in your direction and demand to know what the hell you think you're doing.
This was the method behind the invention of the Infinite Improbability Drive. By way of explanation, the theory behind finite improbability generators was well-understood by that point and largely consisted of ensuring that probability was twisted just right to ensure an otherwise improbable result. For example, ensuring that, at parties, every particle in the hostess's undergarments simultaneously quantum-leaped two feet to the left. The INFINITE Improbability Drive was considered something of a Holy Grail for scientists but after centuries of trying they gave up and declared that it was next to impossible to create one. An underclassman, cleaning up after one of those previously-mentioned parties, realized that if it was ALMOST impossible, there must be some real possibility of it, and decided to find out what would happen if he worked out how improbable such a drive was, fed the result into a finite improbability generator, gave it a really hot cup of tea, and turned it on. Moments later, a fully-functional Infinite Improbability Drive was created. Not long after that, the underclassman was lynched by the now-thoroughly-annoyed scientists.

There was a Tiny Toon Adventures episode which explained the phenomenon. Elmer, teaching the young toons, said that as long as the toon didn't look down it wouldn't fall.
Which in itself is a shout out to an earlier Disney work where Walt himself explained this as the Plausible Impossible effect.

SpongeBob SquarePants:
SpongeBob and Patrick set up a bonfire while they believe themselves to be wanted men, and the instant Patrick wonders on how they could possibly light a fire while underwater, it fizzles out.
In another episode, land-dwelling fanboy Patchy the Pirate sent him an invitation to a party, but when SpongeBob received it underwater, the writings on it have been turned into indecipherable smudges. SpongeBob then proceeds to make a smug comment.
In "Snowball Effect", SpongeBob tries to teach Patrick on how to make a snowball. Patrick fails...but in the process, ends up creating a snow cube, a snow pyramid, and a snow double helix.
The building montage of "Home Sweet Pineapple," full stop. The two, attempting to rebuild SpongeBob's house after it was eaten, manage to completely defy the laws of physics without even noticing.
In "Ink Lemonade", Patrick is running a lemonade stand using one lemon that Squidward gave him. When the lemon is used up, he tries to get more juice from a toy fire engine, and despite Squidward telling him that he can't, he manages to extract a few drops of a red liquid from it.
In "Call the Cops", Patrick also somehow manages to make ice cream in a jail cell toilet using toilet paper, his own underwear, toothpaste (including the empty tube), and a cinder block.

Warhammer 40,000:
This is how a lot of humanity's technology operates in the dark days of the 41st millennium. After thousands of years of scientific regression, the Adeptus Mechanicus not only has a monopoly on mankind's Lost Technology, they worship it and wrap all but the simplest of mechanical tasks into a religious ritual. So activating an ancient plasma reactor or whatnot involves a great deal of chanting, incense, the application of sanctified engine oil, and some specific taps with a wrench that just so happen to hit the "on" switch. Depending on the Writer this is all a scheme to keep the common people from learning how to maintain their own devices, while other sources have the AdMech genuinely clueless of the scientific principles behind their shiny toys. In yet others, much of it is real, the Machine Spirits the worship is meant to appease exist, and advanced Tech Priests are essentially wizards.
The Orks are an even more pronounced example. Greenskins don't have scientists that we'd recognize, but "Meks" and "Doks" with mechanical and medical knowledge hard-wired into their DNA. They can put together an engine block or perform an organ transplant purely on instinct, but wouldn't be able to explain how they did it. For the Orks' weirder, physics-defying inventions, the devices function to some extent because the Orks expect them to — Orks are latent psykers, but aren't conscious of this fact. This is why captured Greenskin technology is so temperamental or nonfunctional when used by a non-Ork, and why when it comes to Orky vehicles, the Red Ones Go Faster.
An even more extreme example are the Jokaero. Similar to the Orks, these orangutan-like aliens are capable of creating technology on an instinctual level. Unlike the Greenskins, though, these aren't piles of junk randomly slapped together and brought to life through sheer willpower. The Jokaero can make some of the most advanced, highly miniaturized technology in the galaxy, utilizing advanced techniques and seemingly natural phenomenon that the best minds in the Imperium can't wrap their heads around. And they can do it with pretty much any bits of junk that happen to be lying around. A Jokaero can sit on a pile of technological scrap and assemble a spacecraft that is more advanced than almost anything any other race can put together. Again, another difference from the Orks is that anyone can use Jokaero tech. In spite of this, there is great debate if Jokaero are even sentient, as they don't appear to have any discernible language or culture, with everything they do motivated only by their will to survive. The evident lack of sentience, their innate technological prowess and the non-exclusivity of their tech means that the Imperium is willing to make them an exception to their Kill 'Em All policy regarding Xenos, and Jokaero technology is highly sought after by both Rogue Traders and Inquisitors. That said, their creative process appears to be entirely random. Handing a Jokaero a bolt pistol could result in it having enough firepower to vaporize a tank in one shot, or an otherwise normal bolt pistol with some high-tech but ultimately useless flourish, with no way to discern which you are going to get.

Tedd's attempt to investigate the scientific underpinnings of magic in El Goonish Shive reveals that this is one of the rules, at least when it comes to magical enchantments put on people. If you put a 1-hour enchantment on someone and tell them it'll last a week, it will last a week simply because they don't know it's supposed to have worn off already. This cuts both ways — tell them the magic will wear off shortly, and it will, even if it wasn't supposed to. As long as they trust your word, anyway. That essentially means that being very naive and completely uninformed about magic has the potential to turn you into a magic-powered supersoldier...
Another instance of mind over magic: Tedd's ability to see and interpret magic in action went completely unnoticed because everybody assumed Tedd was using Magitek, and Tedd thought it was normal .

The Team Rocket trio of the Pokémon inevitably accomplish this. By the end of their Sinnoh run, they have become such washouts within the organisation that Giovanni has completely forgotten who they are, meaning he starts believing their exaggerated claims of success and promoting them to bigger roles.

He's thoroughly convinced that he failed the exam and All Might confirms that 15 points aren't enough to get in even with a flawlessly written score. Then he finds out that he got the highest score in the history of the exam thanks to the 160 rescue points he wracked up, surpassing even All Might's decades-long record. While getting ready for his second day of school, he manages to defeat Mr. Mxyzptlk completely by accident when he misunderstands the rules of the game, inadvertently tricking the imp into yelling "Kltpzyxm" in frustration.

Tidus in Final Fantasy X is completely ignorant of Spira's customs and the Church of Yevon. Because he stubbornly refuses to conform to the social norms, he starts asking the big questions that no one else thought to ask for over a thousand years. This leads Yuna's party to discover that the entire faith is a lie to control the masses.

In Delicious in Dungeon, one of the original ten golem cores had been lost due to Senshi dropping it down a drain when washing it. The core eventually reached the sixth floor and once it froze over accidentally created an ice golem.

Blackadder:
In the episode of Blackadder II themed around Elizabethan-era exploration, Blackadder launches an exploration mission to improve his standing in court. His actual plan is just to channel-hop to France, relax for a while, and come back with made-up tales of adventure. The captain he hires, however, is almost completely insane and no-one else on board knows how to navigate or operate a ship. As revealed at the end of the episode, they somehow made it to Australia and back within two years.
At the end of the final episode of Blackadder the Third, Prince George announces he's alive because the bullet hit the cigarillo box in his pocket. As soon as he realizes the cigarillo box is in his other jacket, he dies.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
The episode "Twilight's Kingdom, Part 1": "I don't think it works that way, Pinkie." While interrogating an inanimate rubber chicken won't get the Key of Laughter, throwing it at the Harmony Box actually does transform Boneless the rubber chicken into the Key of Laughter.
This is one explanation for how Pinkie Pie manages to constantly violate the realistic, Magic A Is Magic A setting with her unusual abilities. Something that other characters lampshade frequently.
In the episode "Inspiration Manifestation", Spike is able to easily recover a booby-trapped cursed book, largely because he was too distracted checking it out to realize he was in-danger and panic like he would have likely done otherwise.

Child of the Storm has Magneto's teaching style work along these lines - don't tell your student that something is meant to be impossible, and they might just pull it off. His first lesson with Harry, when he drops a (very realistic) hologram of a piece of debris on his head, which Harry instinctively catches with his Psychic Powers, is designed to demonstrate this. Doctor Strange, on the other hand, knows that various things are impossible, then does them anyway.
Wielders of chaos magic tend to thrive on this, with Wanda explaining to Hermione in the sequel that chaos magic is only really limited by the wielder's imagination (though willingness to use their power/risk the side-effects and durability both come into play). Since Hermione, who herself has chaos magic (thanks to being Wanda's daughter, and completely unaware of it), is someone who thrives on Rule Magic - learning the rules of magic and mastering the framework they provide - this underlines the fact that this is really not the power-set for her.
Steve apparently lifted Mjolnir several times prior to the first book, completely unaware of the significance. This meant that once, he used it as a doorstop.

Circle of Magic:
The books run on this trope, particularly the four main characters weaving their powers together in the first book. Lampshaded when Niko informs Tris that the magic-seeing spell should have worn off a week after it was placed.
At the same time, though, it is noted by various characters that magic (much like science in the real world) has many things still unknown about it. You just don't realize this is so until the so-called impossible happens.
This is multiplied by the fact the main characters have natural ambient magic, which comes from an affinity to various crafts or elements, whose rules are more or less adherent as to the individual subject matter, as opposed to the learned university magic which is highly structured by it's schooled rules.

In Splatoon's single player campaign, at one point a member of Mission Control somehow manages to make herself almost impossible to understand on the radio because she's holding hers the wrong way. This is represented by having her dialogue box shown upside down. This returns as a Chekhov's Gag in the sequel, when the player and company intercept an odd message delivered in the same manner, confirming to her partner that she's been brainwashed into working for the enemy.

In Uprooted, Agnieszka's accomplishments pretty much run on this. She uses a healing spell that her teacher has written off as useless, goes for whatever incantation and rhythm feels right rather than the carefully studied formulae that he follows, and rescues her best friend from the malevolent Wood because she didn't know completely what it would entail. Her active suggestions also rely on this, like using an incredibly dangerous text to cleanse her friend of The Corruption. (That said, she does also practice and study, just from books written by other intuitive mages like her.) Her teacher eventually gives up shouting How Unscientific! at her.

In Sourcery, the Genie uses this to travel through the sky in the lamp while Nijel is also holding it. The trick is not to draw too much attention to it (by thinking or talking about it) so that physics doesn't catch up with its impossibility.

Joe Patroni in Airport is a skilled mechanic qualified to taxi planes but not fly them. When a 707 is stuck on a snowy runway and has to be moved off at any cost to allow another plane's emergency landing, he takes the cockpit and pushes the aircraft past its limits until he manages to get it moving just ahead of the plows coming to (destructively) give it a push, thereby saving the aircraft. Arguably Patroni is overqualified for this trope, because he knows the plane inside and out and exactly how much abuse it can take. What drives it home is when he's told afterward that the manual says what he just did is impossible—to which he replies the beauty of the 707 is "she can do everything but read." It's an achievement in ignorance for the plane.

Foxface's death in The Hunger Games occurs thanks to this. One of the more clever tributes, she survives the Games by stealth and caution, stealing food from the other tributes in small amounts that they're not likely to notice. This backfires on her when she steals berries collected by Peeta, who isn't wilderness-savvy enough to realize that they're extremely poisonous. Katniss notes after the fact that a deliberate trap would have never worked, but Foxface had no reason to think twice about eating something that another tribute had collected for his own consumption.

This is how Ed of Ed, Edd n Eddy is able to warp reality and do things no normal kid should do; such as lifting a house. Actually lampshaded once: Edd and Eddy come to a screeching halt at the edge of a cliff, Ed slams into them and knocks them off. Eddy starts yelling at him before Double D looks down and announces: "Uh, gentlemen? IMPROBABLE ALERT!" While Ed contemplates that he can "jump it" (jump to the other side of the ravine while already standing on air) the others scramble back to safety.

South Park:
In "The Wacky Molestation Adventure", Kyle's parents tell him he can go to a Raging Pussies concert if he brings democracy to Cuba. He does just that, unaware that his parents thought this task impossible. They still don't let him go.
"Red Hot Catholic Love" has Cartman insisting, based on nothing more than Insane Troll Logic, that since eating makes you poop out of your butt that naturally putting food up your butt will make you poop from the mouth. He's so desperate to prove Kyle wrong that he actually tries it... and it actually works. Kyle sums it up the best:
In "The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs" kids are appalled when the supposedly "risque" and "mature" book The Catcher in the Rye doesn't live up to their expectations, and, for shits and giggles, decide to write their own banned book, making it as disgusting as possible. They succeed, and their creation is praised worldwide as a literary masterpiece because people keep ludicrously interpreting elements of the book as brilliant metaphors.
In "Krazy Kripples", after expressing a desire to join the Crips, which they believe is an organization for people who have been disabled from birth, Jimmy and Timmy manage to "pop some punk-ass Bloods", despite assuming that this means buying marshmallows and ginger ale. They cross the road on the way to the store, causing a truck driver to swerve and kill the rival gang members. The Crips are ecstatic that they both popped some Bloods and brought back marshmallows and ginger ale.
In "Wing" the boys not only set free countless people indentured in slavery to the Chinese Mafia, but actually convince the criminal organization to abandon human trafficking for good, without ever once even realizing they're dealing with criminals in the first place. They simply think the Mafia is a talent agency and have stolen their client.

Sweet Genius:
Some winners have been primarily self-taught and have won largely because they didn't cook by the same rules the trained professionals did, resulting in unusually creative desserts.
One chef in the infamous bone marrow challenge decorated her plate with the bone the marrow came in, not realizing Chef Ron has a thing about inedible decorations. However, the way she used it was creative enough to actually earn his praise, and she won the episode.

Pete Sandoval (of Morbid Angel, probably the most influential Death Metal drummer ever) has a funny story about how he became known as "Pete the Feet". One day the other members played a recording of a drum machine, and lightly poked fun at Pete for it being faster than him. His response? He kept practicing and practicing until he was able to outpace the machine, eventually forcing the band the admit that it was, in fact, not a real drummer.

Manly Guys Doing Manly Things:
Jared succeeds in using a Level 5 Magikarp as his starter Pokémon, which should be impossible because the only attack Magikarp has at that level is the useless Splash. Jared, however, doesn't understand the basic mechanics of Pokemon battling and instead uses Mr. Fish as a bludgeon, and wins enough battles this way for Mr. Fish to evolve.
Jared also doesn't understand anything else about Pokemon training, and instead uses real-world logic and animal handling techniques to manage his fifty-foot sea dragon. This is seen as revolutionary by Pokemon professors, and has dramatic results when Lysandre compares his own Gyarados (kept in a Poke Ball and only fed Poke Puffs) to Mr. Fish (free-range and an active predator).
Time Travel works this way: there are no paradoxes or alternate timelines as long as you don't worry about how it works. If you do...

Achievement Hunter Minecraft Series: In episode 159, the crew is playing with a mod that adds dinosaurs. Ryan and Geoff are looking at a machine that creates eggs and embryos from DNA, and Ryan's wondering why it doesn't seem to be working. Geoff puts a chicken egg in the machine as a joke, and it turns out that eggs are the "fuel" for the machine.
Alfredo has been given the nickname "Mr. Magoo" due to the fact that he has bumbled across the Minecraft server, somehow avoided monsters and death traps that have taken out other Hunters numerous times and discovered places that the others failed to by complete accident. This is how he ends up winning the second "Ya Dead Ya Dead" series.

In Fate Stay/Night fanfic Nerve Damage, Shirou Emiya converted all his nerves into ad-hoc Magic Circuits prior to the story, making him obscenely powerful. When Rin finds out, she tells him that mages have been trying to achieve that very feat for centuries only to fail catastrophically, and even attempting it really should have killed him.

In one story from Wally Wood's Sally Forth, the characters are riding in a battle-scarred helicopter — until one of them points out that it should not be able to fly, causing it to fall immediately.

In the Inheritance Cycle, there exists a little girl named Elva with perfect precognitive abilitiesnote so long as the thing she's predicting involves pain, anyway and the power to know exactly the right words to completely destroy someone, or to build them back up, without using magic at all. Multiple characters comment that she could probably defeat the main antagonist single-handedly. Sure enough, when they get to him, he uses magic to prevent her from speaking, and then admits to being more frightened of her than any other living being. How did she come into existence? Because of Eragon's bad grammar.note He was trying to bless her as a baby, and intended to say '...And may you be shielded from misfortune', but used the wrong tense of 'shield' and instead cast a spell with the wording 'may you be a shield from misfortune'. This gave her the ability to predict misfortune, and how to prevent or - once Eragon removed her compulsion to do the latter - cause it.

Homestar Runner:
This may explain the title character's use of the "telekinetic powers/invisible arms" that the fans are still debating over. Homestar may not realize that he should be unable to manipulate objects or coat sleeves or stay airborne between two shackles in Trogdor's Dungeon in 8-Bit Is Enough. However, suggesting the same of Marzipan might be pushing it.
Quite a few characters have Invisible Anatomy. It could be that the characters grew up with it and so don't think it's unusual (or impossible).
According to the Strong Bad Email "4 branches", Strong Bad has classified a whole list of "So Stupid It's Smart-ities" Homestar has accomplished, like accidentally reciting Coulomb's Law when asked, "What's two plus two?"

Genius: The Transgression:
The premise is implied to be this. Since the Inspired put the "mad" in "Mad Scientist", they have a tendency to veer into Insane Troll Logic. They're still able to make inventions using that logic, however, often achieving impossible feats.
Indeed, one of the defining conflicts of the game is between "normal" Geniuses (who know it isn't possible and do it anyway) and Unmada: Geniuses who truly believe science works according to their paradigm. Around an Unmada, it does...

Dino Attack RPG plays this for laughs constantly with Enter and Return. Where to begin, they firmly believe that sharks, trees, and umbrellas are appropriate equipment for surgery, successfully used a shark to revive a patient after conventional CPR and a defibrillator already failed, and in one instance after being sent on a Snipe Hunt, they managed to leave a hospital, buy a fishing pole, go to the harbor, catch a shark and get back in roughly 30 seconds.

The main character of BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out My Defense, a VRMMORPG novel, hasn't played any game before. So she started putting all the skill points of her character in defense. But she acquired very rare and powerful abilites that make use of her defense, like gaining additional resistance or outright nullifying all the damage she receives.

In one of the Myst novelizations, The Book of Atrus, Katherine has been secretly learning how to write Ages, and when she shows one of her books to Atrus, he patronizes her by saying something like "Good idea, but it couldn't work in practice." She just tells him to flip to the last page, where a link exists to a fully stable, torus-shaped world with one side always facing the sun and viable life on both sides. Not only does this impress Atrus's socks off, but it fully drives home the fallacy of Gehn's way of thinking: In an infinite universe, anything that can exist, must exist somewhere.
Hugh Hoyland, the protagonist of Robert A. Heinlein's Orphans Of The Sky, on learning his people's world is actually a space ship, decides to teach himself how to pilot the ship. According to all common sense of astrogation, no single person can learn the necessary skills to fly a ship by himself, especially one of the size Hoyland was on. However, because all knowledge of this common sense was never printed in text, he never realized this and thus taught himself all the skills. This was repeated later in the novel when Hoyland, not realizing the difficulty of managing a landing and the sheer danger his life is in, successfully lands his craft on a planet.

Goblins:
Drowbabe is able to shrug off wounds because she's under the effects of a Mage Armor spell, and has convinced herself that the spell provides damage resistance (it actually makes it easier to dodge blows).
Minmax manages to create a sword made of Oblivion, the concept of nothingness, by toying around with a magic sword and a hole in reality. Kin theorizes that the sword only continues to exist because Minmax can't comprehend the concept of Oblivion, and his ignorance might even fuel the sword and make it more powerful.
Minmax then proceeds to give the sword the incredibly appropriate name of "Oblivious". Naturally, while not knowing what the word "oblivious" means.

Sunsplit Saga: Sunspawned: The spell that Sunburst used to create Sunset, the Independent Construct Kinesis Equation, was in magical textbooks, but was thought to be purely theoretical, which Sunburst didn't know. Celestia's hair, which Sunburst had unwittingly used in the spell, helped, but it turns out that the reason no one before him succeeded is because they got the math wrong. Sunburst used the math Meadowbrook used for enchanted items, while everyone else (except possibly a hedgewitch who may have created the Mirror Pool) used the "amniomorphic constant".

In Dr. Stone, during the America story arc, Arc Villain Dr. Xeno sends an army of soldiers armed with machine guns and grenades to fight against the comparatively primitive fighters of the Kingdom of Science. But since some of those on the Kingdom of Science's side have never seen advanced weapons like these before, they fail to recognize just how dangerous they are, so they're not intimidated into surrendering as Xeno expected. This lets them fight off these heavily-armed soldiers using only spears.

Don't Rest Your Head: It's implied that not only do the normal people ignore anything related to Mad City (for example, when they stole an entire district, they thought it was destroyed in a fire), they can literally No-Sell anything the Nightmares do. Most of the time.

Horribly subverted in The Batman. The Joker had no idea what his Joker Putty formula would do to human flesh, but when he found out it had turned Ethan Bennet into Clayface, his sick mind actually considered that a great accomplishment.
In an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Aquaman uses his ability to control aquatic creatures to take command of... silverfish. The Atom points out that silverfish are insects, but ends up shrugging it off with a Sure, Let's Go with That after Aquaman cheerfully responds that "a fish is a fish." This is itself a Call-Back to their first meeting, in which Aquaman used his powers in a "Fantastic Voyage" Plot to command a lymphocyte. This gave Ryan a Twitchy Eye.

In the first season episode of Code Lyoko "Cruel Dilemma", after Jeremie again fails to make Aelita's virtualization program work, Odd snoops around in Jeremie's room, takes some of Jeremie's candy, and when Jeremie surprises him, drops the candy on the keyboard of the computer...accidentally rebooting the virtualization program and completely by accident, inputting an unknown command that makes it work. (Unfortunately, because Jeremie didn't see what Odd did and can't save the program for some reason, he can only use it once, and when Yumi falls into the Digital Sea at the end, he has to use it to save her from a Fate Worse than Death, meaning Aelita has to wait.)

Jared also doesn't understand anything else about Pokemon training, and instead uses real-world logic and animal handling techniques to manage his fifty-foot sea dragon. This is seen as revolutionary by Pokemon professors, and has dramatic results when Lysandre compares his own Gyarados (kept in a Poke Ball and only fed Poke Puffs) to Mr. Fish (free-range and an active predator).

The Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers episode "Good Times, Bat Times" features the quite popular one-shot bat Foxglove who manages to carry Dale while flying. She actually cannot carry him, but she does until Dale expresses his amazement about it. At this point, she remembers that she can't carry him, and they plummet. At other points in the episode, we see her trying (and almost succeeding) to keep the Ranger Wing from crashing and carrying a brick in mid-air, probably because nobody tells her that all this is too heavy for her.

Pretty much everything Richard does with his magic in The Sword of Truth. He routinely pulls off stunts that much older, learned, and experienced wizards and sorceresses believe are impossible. And in fact, Richard himself struggles with even the most basic of magic when he actively thinks about using his power. It turns out that Richard is a particular type of wizard called a War Wizard, who utilize their power purely on instinct and intuition rather than formal study. That's right, it's an entire school of wizardry that runs on this trope.

In the Star Trek: The Next Generation Q Continuum trilogy, the evil omnipotent being is more powerful than Q because he's insane and can ignore/doesn't know the limits of omnipotence. It does help that he (it?) is also from a universe/dimension/existence that even the Q have no idea exists.
