Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Whether it's The Ditz, The Fool, Inspector Oblivious, or a monkey, this miscreant is capable of derailing the most ironclad plan by unknowingly taking a third option. They ruin the implausible Gambit Roulettes by exploiting their one, intrinsic flaw: their reliance on Contrived Coincidences, rigid patterns, and the assumption that nobody would be stupid enough to actually push the Big Red Button or fight the ''apparently'' unstoppable robot.
How can they outdo the master at his own game with nothing but stupidity and clumsiness? It's precisely because these characters are the fools and tools of fate that they are uniquely placed to derail these schemes with the gentleness of a butterfly flapping its wings... of doom!
Put another way, they are an author's walking deconstruction or Lampshade Hanging of the Theory of Narrative Causality: just as easily as a plot can come together, it can be pulled apart with the tiniest, most ridiculous things.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })These characters are the worst nightmare of The Chessmaster, Smug Snake, Manipulative Bastard, and Magnificent Bastard, and the bane of many a Clock King.
When the character ruins a protagonist's plans by unknowingly doing something small but crucial, he becomes an Unwitting Instigator of Doom. When the Spanner can trigger a series of coincidences, it's Disaster Dominoes. When the plan is screwed and the character is also aware that he will screw the plan, and doesn't care, he becomes a Leeroy Jenkins. Occasionally, may be Mistaken for Badass. If the focus isn't on them, they're often an Unknown Character.
Compare Finagle's Law, It Began with a Twist of Fate, Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!, Outside-Context Problem, Remembered Too Late.
Opposite of the Unwitting Pawn, often is the Unwitting Pawn until the final crucial moment. This is the main cause of Didn't See That Coming, this trope being the "that". Quite often an Achievement In Ignorance. Inverse of Unintentional Backup Plan, where a character accidentally completes an imperfect plan that would have otherwise failed. Compare with Out-Gambitted, where someone's plan is successful but ineffective against a better-thought-out plan. Compare Too Dumb to Fool, where the character is too stupid even to be baffled by explanations. Also, compare Evil Cannot Comprehend Good, where the flaw is that the villain can't see someone being generous or brave or honest enough to foul up his plan.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Specialty of The Fool. See also Didn't See That Coming, The Dog Bites Back, Who's Laughing Now?
The trope is reputedly named for the Industrial Revolution-era practice of disgruntled workers throwing a spanner into a machine, either because of fears machines would put them out of work, or as a bargaining chip for better working conditions (and often because they were the only ones who knew how to repair the machines as well).
(Note for Americans reading this: "Spanner" is the Queen's English word for what you would call a "wrench", with the added benefit of it being slang for a stupid person. It has nothing to do with a Long Runner in development. The equivalent American phrase specifically involves a monkey wrench, known in the UK as a gas grip — "He really threw a monkey wrench into my plans.")
Not to be confused with A Spaniard in the Works, which was a 1965 book by John Lennon of nonsensical sketches and drawings whose title was a wordplay on this expression.
Disgruntled French workers did this by throwing sabots (wooden-soled clogs) into machinery - giving us the word sabotage.
Often an ending trope, spoilers may be ahead.

The Bridge gives a borderline humorous example in an otherwise completely serious situation. Bagan has set up an elaborate Xanatos Gambit that would work out in full to both secure more power for himself as well as kill Harmony. A crux of it was keeping a displaced Monster X separated from his comrades and put into the Equestria Girls world, where he'll be weaker in his human form and thus easier to kill by Bagan's agent, Enjin. One bystander messed it up and they weren't another kaiju nor an Equestrian hero intervening in the fight. EG!Photo Finish happened to be at the scene of a battle between X and Enjin at a hospital and took some pictures, thinking it was a movie stunt being filmed. Days later when an ally of X was in the same realm but dozens of miles away, she bumped into Photo, saw the pictures and recognized X in the images; and was able to alert her allies that she'd found him and he was in trouble. Bagan, the billions year old Physical God got his plans set back by a photographer who didn't even know what she was snapping pictures of.

Advice and Trust: Shinji and Asuka end up ruining Gendo's plans by befriending Rei, although this happens long before his plans are put into action. And everyone is completely unaware of the implication of this, meaning that they spend several chapters trying to figure out how to stop him, and he still thinks that he's in control of the situation, despite the fact that he's already lost.

In Chrononauts, new players are the spanner. Plans in the game range from Gambit Roulette to "I win next turn as long as no one makes a minor change in 1914". New players will often meddle with history (even starting World War III), steal random historical artifacts, or kill the makers of said artifacts, to "see what happens".

In Day of the Wolves, #1's plan for Taking Over the Town was masterfully planned and executed. The one thing he could not have foreseen was that Chief of Police Pete Anderson would have been fired the day before the plan was executed, and therefore was at home instead of at the police station with the other officers.

In the Sluggy Freelance story arc "GOFOTRON Champion of the Universe," Zorgon Gola has a pretty nice Gambit set up where he pretends to be an Omnicidal Maniac, so that the heroes will sacrifice themselves trying to prevent a chain reaction that would destroy the universe, leaving him free to take over the Punyverse after their deaths. What he didn't count on was Torg, Riff, and Bun-Bun accidentally teleporting themselves into the Punyverse. They end up hijacking a vital piece of the heroes' Combining Mecha (the crotch). Without this, the heroes have no way of pulling off their Heroic Sacrifice, and Zorgon Gola, along with the rest of the Punyverse, is blown up. Oops.

Know Thyself: While Voldemort was a carefully crafted factor in the machine's plans, Harry surviving his encounter with a scar and Voldemort's code being scattered from it was such an anomalous event, agents had been keeping a close an eye on him to ensure that he wasn't a threat up until the point that Trinity found him. Not only that, but the machines didn't even notice his absence at first because he is the only wizard to have been successfully unplugged, all other attempts rendered in a vegetative state.

Spider-X: Mystique’s immediate plan to spend time with Rogue as Risty and her and Magneto's more long-term plan to infiltrate the manor and pose as Xavier are both thwarted just because Peter Parker joins the X-Men, as his spider-sense makes him aware of Mystique's true identity even when she isn’t explicitly doing anything dangerous (although she doesn't actually know how he sensed her for some time).

In Sudden Death, Foss has a great plan to use Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals to hold the Vice-President of the United States and others hostage to demand hundreds of millions of dollars in ransom. He's got bombs set around the arena, his men around it, explosives set to keep the cops at bay and the head of the Secret Service unit handling this is secretly on his side. All it takes for things to go awry is for the fire marshal's daughter to walk off and his trying to find her causing him to stumble onto the whole plot and fight the terrorists on his own.

The Cool Kids Table Harry Potter-themed game Hogwarts: The New Class is built on this. The plan was to bring four American muggle-borns to Hogwarts and teach them magic in order to expand the wizarding community. Unfortunately, the four picked were four cloud-cuckoolanders who ignore almost all advice given to them and go out of their way to poke holes in every rule of wizarding society, causing McGonagall to quickly grow exasperated.

Fate/Harem Antics: The entire fic is about Irisviel, who is trapped in the Holy Grail but in full control of it, deciding to use the upcoming Holy Grail War to get her son Shirou a harem. All the existing plots and plans promptly get derailed as Iri makes sure all the Masters and Servants besides Shirou are female. Specific examples are:
Iri's father planned to summon Hercules as a Berserker and force his granddaughter Illya to serve as Master. Iri summoned Minamoto no Raikou instead. Likewise, Iri has some limited ability to speak to her daughter through the Grail, so unlike in canon where Illya hated Shirou and their father (because her grandfather lied to her), Illya knows that their father never abandoned her, and is looking forward to meeting Shirou.
Bazett tried to summon Cú Chulainn as Lancer, but Iri gave her Scáthach instead. More importantly, when Kirei tried to murder Bazett for her Command Seals, Iri briefly stopped his artificial heart, distracting him at a critical moment and ruining the opportunity.
Sakura summoned Medusa as Rider, as in canon. Zouken tried to force Sakura to give control over to her brother Shinji, but Iri deliberately made the summoning more explosive than usual, causing the ceiling to fall on Zouken. Sakura and Rider escaped in the confusion.
After Zouken recovered from having a ceiling drop on him, he summoned a Servant himself, deciding an Assassin would fit him best. Iri gave him Hassan of Serenity, a Poisonous Person. Zouken didn't realize that, slapped her for her perceived disobedience, and melted. And since Iri had severed his connection to Sakura (which she could only do after Sakura made her contract with the Grail), he couldn't draw power from her and stayed dead for good.
Iri did this to herself with Assassin: Since the intent is for Shirou to have sex with all the girls, the fact that she can't touch anyone without killing them is a problem. Iri quickly summons Sir Galahad as Shielder, who has the power to resist poisons and can pass this onto her allies. And she makes Caren, Kirei's long-lost illegitimate daughter, her Master just to mess with Kirei.
And Iri again manages to do this to herself. By summoning Shielder and Ruler, she broke the normal limits on number of Servants and left the door open for others to be summoned. Three separate groups start summoning Servants of their own. Iri can't shut them down, but she can make sure the Servants and Masters are all female. She gives the Ainsworth family Jeanne Alter as Avenger, but instead of letting Julian become the Master as they intended she grabs his sister Angelica. She gives Fiore of the Yggdmillennia clan Nobunaga Oda (who is female in the Nasuverse) as Gunner. And Miyu wasn't trying to summon a Servant at all, but didn't understand how the Grail War worked and got Elizabeth Bathory as Temptress.

This Bites!:
The Unluckies. If the For Want of a Nail in Chapter 19 wasn't enough, in Chapter 20, Cross attempts to use Soundbite's powers to stop or stall the Rebel Army outside of Alubarna. Unfortunately, the Unluckies arrive and snatch the snail, scrapping that plan. And even after they're beaten, Miss Friday manages to disable Soundbite's powers until Luffy beats Crocodile.
For a while, it actually became something of a Running Gag that the Straw Hats' plans never worked out as planned, to the point that the characters started making note of in their planning sessions. This was particularly frustrating and humiliating for Cross, as he is the official tactician for the crew. But starting after Skypiea, things start going much better.
Granny Kokoro proves to be this to Cross's plans. Sloshed out of her mind, she browbeats Iceburg and Franky into feeling the love that the Going Merry has for her crew, and encouraging them, as Tom's apprentices, construct a ship worthy of the Oro Jackson's successor... within earshot of Iceburg's secretary and one of his best shipwrights.
Aokiji. Post-Enies Lobby, when he came across an island hosting a big pirate brawl, he decided to halt the whole thing with an Ice Age... giving Blackbeard the perfect opportunity to swallow up his now-frozen opponents.

The Pink Panther
In The Pink Panther 2, it seems like Inspector Clouseau, a seemingly Inspector Oblivious, is one of these until the very end, where he reveals that he was a Chessmaster after all.
According to Peter Sellers, the original Clouseau qualified as well, but he knew he was a buffoon deep down.
The Pink Panther Strikes Again had killers from all over the world come after him. He bends over to tie his shoes at the exact right moment... Likewise in the film's Dénouement, Clouseau is unwittingly catapulted onto Dreyfus' Death Ray, destroying it and killing Dreyfus in the process.

Red vs. Blue:
In Episode 100 of the Blood Gulch Chronicles (Seasons 1-5), Omega the evil AI has apparently won; He's repossessed Tex, captured Junior, Tucker's alien son, and has a ship to escape Blood Gulch with. What stops the computerized personification of rage from possessing Junior and using him to eventually take control of the aliens from within? The Red Team planting Andy the Bomb on the ship. This was originally done in an attempt to defeat the Blues, but Andy's presence allows them to blast Tex and Omega out of the sky, allowing Junior to escape in the chaos. On a smaller scale, Tucker finding the alien sword makes him immune to Agent Wyoming's time-rewinder, allowing him to remember the events of each iteration and eventually figure out how to stop the bounty hunter for good.
The Space Pirates from the Chorus Trilogy (Seasons 11-13) had a pretty good False Flag Operation; their leaders would play two rival factions on the planet against one another, fueling them with reversed engineered alien technology and special weapons from ships they forced to crash into Chorus using their tractor beam until both sides killed each other off, allowing their employers to take full control of the planet and all the alien relics therein. However, their last attempt was foiled when the ship tried to change course, jump to slipspace, and power down simultaneously, causing it to break apart on entry and leave some of its passengers alive. Said passengers are the Blood Gulch Crew, who not only complicated the attempted crash in the first place (purely by accident) but would also end up outing the Space Pirates scheme to Chorus and eventually the rest of the UNSC.
In season 14, we learn how the Blood Gulch outposts were formed. Project Freelancer were going to use the place to hide the Alpha AI, so Agent Florida purposely assembled the worst soldiers from both the Red and Blue armies to fill the ranks, and even had a computerized personality (Vic) act as Command and keep both sides at a stalemate. Vic even had a roster of other Freelancers to recruit if anything happened to Florida. So what causes a perfectly orchestrated Forever War to spiral out of control, and eventually lead to the Project's destruction? Florida tripping over one of Vic's cables, then dying in a Stable Time Loop (Church tried to prevent his death by giving him aspirin, which he was allergic to). This scrambled Vic's systems and replaced the agents who were supposed to be sent to the teams with Caboose and Donut, whose Snipe Hunts (wait for an inspector with different armor than the Blue team and go to a store and get some elbow grease, respectively) end up with Donut running off with the Blue Flag. This caused Tex's appearance, Church's death, and ultimately the entire series.

The Black Jack Justice episode "Justice For Some" features a client of Jack's planning to steal his wife's heirloom necklace during an event and invite known thieves to be fall guys for Jack to catch. The plan fails because one had legitimately reformed, another was on a whole other floor casing the joint's artwork, and Jack managed to grab the third when the lights went out to facilitate the robbery. This leaves the client the only person in any position to have performed the act.

Lara Lee in Django Unchained is the one who first notices Hildy's tension with Django, and it's her lighthearted jest about it that draws Stephen's attention to them enough for him to work out the rest. It's possible that the plan would have gone off without a hitch had she not noticed or not chosen to joke about it.

Trixie becomes this in My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Forgotten Friendship. Even though she's under the same Laser-Guided Amnesia the rest of CHS is hit with, Trixie sympathizes with Sunset's plight instead of hating her, and ends up becoming her Number Two. After the initial confrontation with the Big Bad, Trixie also manages to get Sunset out of a locked room, letting Sunset confront the Big Bad again, this time where the other Equestria Girls can hear the culprit spell out their evil plan in a little too much detail.

The Child of Love:
Gendo thought he had planned for any contingence but he did not foresee his son's involvement. Shinji sleeping with Asuka forced him to modify his plans and it ensured that Yui would want to protect his son’s family and Rei would get involved in ways Gendo would not like.
In chapter 9 Fuyutsuki warned him that he had not accounted for everyone and someone would stop him, but Gendo did not listen. Cue Rei interfering. And then Yui.

In the fourth chapter of Super Danganronpa 2, Hajime is able to figure out who committed that chapter's murder because Fuyuhiko happened to wake up during the night and saw the victim heading downstairs, then sat down in the lounge and spaced out for a while. Fuyuhiko's presence in the lounge prevented the killer from returning to their room after carrying out their plan, and thus they couldn't secure their alibi of being fast asleep when their time-delayed murder method went off. Instead, the killer had to pretend they had left their room along with everyone else to investigate the ringing alarm clock in the lounge, which is proof they weren't in their room in the first place since they had one of the Deluxe rooms, which were completely soundproof.
In the preceding game, the entire triumph of good over evil on Earth hinges on a faulty doorknob. A doorknob which, because of Naegi's Ultimate-level luck, gives him an alibi for a crime he would otherwise have been framed and executed for. Given how important Naegi would go on to be to basically everybody, it's no exaggeration to say that that was the moment Junko's fate was well and truly sealed. (Yes, Junko is that pathetic.)

Roy Greenhilt of The Order of the Stick qualifies for this in one early instance, despite being a very intelligent person, simply because he does something so very unexpected. Xykon honestly doesn't expect the heroes to stop him (and rightly so, as he has an army of monsters, 10 or more levels on the strongest PC, and a monster strong enough to send Paladins flying by LIGHTLY TAPPING THEM). He has three characters immobilized, two more being stalled by monsters, and he had JUST shattered the leader's ancestral sword. Confident that the battle is as good as over, he starts to call out the aforementioned monster to finish the heroes off. And then Roy goes and tosses his bony ass into a body-destroying gate that holds an Eldritch Abomination at bay. The Big Bad is out of commission.
Elan is one of these for both the good and bad guys. Daigo at one point wonders if he's more useful the less he knows what's going on, and Durkon suggests that "He has Ignorance as a class power source." In 691, Roy lets him wander around the desert in the hopes that he'll stumble over something. WHICH HE DOES!
The unnamed Cleric of Loki restored Belkar exclusively because it would help him leave safely, which he immediately did. He had no interest in what Belkar did next.

Dragon Ball Z Abridged:
An odd variation occurs when Dende uses the last wish on Porunga to wish everyone off of Namek save for Frieza and Goku. Not only did this screw Frieza out of his immortality like in canon, but this was the same exact plan King Kai was going to use, only Dende beat King Kai to the punch and did it solely to piss off Frieza.
Earlier on, before Vegeta makes his way to Namek to gather its Dragon Balls, Cui tells him that Freeza heard about Vegeta's plans whilst he was on Earth, because the scouter was on the entire time. Vegeta is shocked at this, claiming the transmitter was off the entire time, but then he realises that Nappa was with him and probably forgot to turn off his scouter...

In just about any D&D module, the adventurers are the Spanner. And any good GM has to be able to handle a Spanner, as the PCs can be expected to do the one thing the GM hasn't anticipated.
A mediocre GM can do this to players. When the players have a good plan which bypasses the intended challenge handily or solves a challenge with minimal fuss, a good GM may let the players have their moment in the sun and save those encounter notes to recycle them with new window dressing. A mediocre GM will have the players' plans fail for increasingly implausible reasons. A poor one will have a deer in headlights look as soon as the players are Off the Rails.
Probably a good example of this is this story◊, where a player who played a Big Good in a Crapsack World completely and utterly derailed a cynical GM's world by being Incorruptible Pure Pureness: a game that had Corruption Points, his character had 0 and then obtained a special artifact that would make them a God but skyrocket their Corruption Points by a multiple of 100 to make them the new Big Bad. However, 0 times anything is still 0.
Example: Give the PCs the Eye of Vecna, you get some fun people fighting over it. However, one of the PCs sacrificing the Eye of Vecna to THE GOD OF JUSTICE? Not so expected.

Avatar: The Last Alicorn: Sweetie's plan to take over Fillydelphia and eliminate all the water and fire benders along with the avatar and the great dragon would've gone perfectly, if it wasn't for AJ learning metal-bending, allowing her to escape, and provide Team Avatar an avenue to escape.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice: The DLC case shows that Larry Butz's still got it; thanks to messily sneaking into a wedding reception because he was hopelessly infatuated with the bride, he not only screwed with the whole "time travel" theme and coverup that was attempted, his general interference also forced the culprit to enact his plan and murder his accomplice much earlier than intended, completely derailing everything and making it possible for the culprit to get caught.

In the preceding game, the entire triumph of good over evil on Earth hinges on a faulty doorknob. A doorknob which, because of Naegi's Ultimate-level luck, gives him an alibi for a crime he would otherwise have been framed and executed for. Given how important Naegi would go on to be to basically everybody, it's no exaggeration to say that that was the moment Junko's fate was well and truly sealed. (Yes, Junko is that pathetic.)

Hellsister Trilogy: During the Apokoliptian War, Darkseid is always at least three steps ahead of his enemies, and he comes very close to win. His plan only fails because of one factor he couldn't have foreseen: Supergirl being near from D'reema right when he spoke the Anti-Life Equation. Before succumbing to the Anti-Life Equation, which destroys Free Will, Kara had just enough time to hypnotize D'Reema into speaking the opposite Equation, thus cancelling out its effects.

Beetlejuice would have succeeded in marrying Lydia and be able to stay in the world of the living forever, if it wasn't for the Maitlands. Adam manages to drive a miniature car into Betelgeuse's foot, which distracted Betelgeuse, while Barbara comes into the house, riding on a sand worm that ends up eating Betelgeuse stopping the wedding from happening.

In The Butchers, JB's original plan was to resurrect the six Serial Killers and then kill them so he could absorb their power. What he didn't count on was a busload of tourists being stranded in the Ghost Town on the day he planned his ritual, or two of those tourists triggering the ritual early. The end of the film implies that Satan, in the guise of the bus driver, deliberately led the tourists there to thwart JB's scheme.

Double subverted during the Centralis battle in the Noob novels and webseries. Fantöm's plan was to distract Amaras simply by his unexpected presence to keep him away from the Coalition frontlines, depsite being much weaker than him. Amaras doesn't fall for it, but this is the time Spectre chooses to confirm the rumors about him being Back in the Saddle. The major difference is that Spectre is strong enough to give Amaras trouble and wants the Empire to win enough to keep him busy so it will have a chance. The novel version of scene mentions the trope by name.

In the 1932 sci-fi mystery film Doctor X the Mad Scientist Serial Killer manages to not only trick the other characters into believing he is innocent but also manipulates them into physically restraining themselves so he can slaughter them at his leisure. Unfortunately he forgot about the Plucky Comic Relief Intrepid Reporter, who manages to dispatch him in a terrified and bumbling fashion at the last minute.

This concept drives the entire plot for Dumb and Dumber. Lloyd sees Mary "forget" her briefcase while going through the airport, and, desperate to win her affection, races through the airport to snag the briefcase and return it to her: the briefcase is the drop for a ransom, containing millions, left there to be picked up by a few hired thugs. The entire plot also runs because the crooks think that Harry and Lloyd are merely Obfuscating Stupidity, never understanding that no, they are actually that dumb, but happen to thwart the criminals at every turn.

There were multiple spanners in Knives Out:
Ransom was the one to anonymously hire Blanc, assuming that his investigation will lead to Marta's incarceration as he was the one to tamper with Marta's medical bag hoping that it will result in Harlan's new will being nullified.
Marta ends up being this to Ransom's plan, as she was able to correctly identify the right medicine and never gave Harlan the fatal morphine dose.
Then there was Harlan himself who rather than let Marta get wrongfully indicted, constructs a complex plot to give her an alibi, forcing Ransom to adjust his plans.
Great-Nana is a spanner to Ransom and Marta's plans since she was the one to spot both of them climbing down the trellis on the night of Harlan's murder.
In the end, Blanc himself is the ultimate spanner, as he was the one to figure out that being anonymously hired to solve what appeared to be a suicide would be Too Good to Be True. In fact, the client would have to have ulterior motives when a large inheritance is on the line. He decides to take the time to solve the case and was able to discover the murderer.

In Ultimate Sleepwalker: The New Dreams, the Green Goblin kidnapped and planned to publicly murder Gwen Stacy as a way to get revenge on her father, Captain George Stacy of the NYPD. While Spider-Man intervened and tried to rescue Gwen, the Goblin had anticipated that and set things up so he'd be able to kill both Spider-Man and Gwen at the same time. Unfortunately, what he didn't take into account was Sleepwalker following Spider-Man to the top of the bridge a Cascnd distracting him long enough for Spider-Man to rescue Gwen and get her to safety. The Goblin proceeded to have a Villainous Breakdown.

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls
In My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Rainbow Rocks, Sunset Shimmer proves to be this for the Sirens. Since she was immune to the Sirens' Mind-Control Music, they instead opt to break her will to rebel against them with a few well-placed Armor Piercing Questions and a Hannibal Lecture. While it briefly sends Sunset into a Heroic BSoD, Sunset still ends up rallying the Rainbooms together and gets them to break free from the Sirens' Hate Plague.
Spike has managed to do this twice. In Rainbow Rocks, after Sunset restores her friends' spirits, Spike has Vinyl Scratch free them from under the stage, allowing them to stop the Sirens at the concert. Then, in My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Friendship Games, being Human Twilight's Morality Chain helps her briefly snap out of being Drunk on the Dark Side, allowing Sunset to break through the dark magic that corrupted her.
Trixie becomes this in My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Forgotten Friendship. Even though she's under the same Laser-Guided Amnesia the rest of CHS is hit with, Trixie sympathizes with Sunset's plight instead of hating her, and ends up becoming her Number Two. After the initial confrontation with the Big Bad, Trixie also manages to get Sunset out of a locked room, letting Sunset confront the Big Bad again, this time where the other Equestria Girls can hear the culprit spell out their evil plan in a little too much detail.
My Little Pony: The Movie (2017): When Tempest sends the orb to petrify Twilight, two different pegasi dash in with the aim of saving Twilight. Rainbow Dash saves her, while Derpy Hooves Takes The Bullet and the resulting distraction buys the Mane Six their chance to get away.

The Pony POV Series has one that's notable for the exceptionally long time required for the spanner to actually get into the villain's works. Back in the G3 Universe, which was facing The End of the World as We Know It (actually a Shoot the Dog to avert a Class Z Apocalypse) at the time, Pinkie Pie's best friend Minty just bled to death after their fight with Luna, leaving behind her "spirit" (or at least a piece of herself). Strife, Discord's sister and Spirit of Natural Selection, is fighting the survivors of the doomed world (in order to give them at least the chance to fight for their survival, something she believes is the right of all living things) and sent Heartless-like spirits of "erased" ponies after them. One of these falls into the canyon where Pinkie and Minty's fight took place, wounded in battle. Pinkie, in a split second choice, fuses the piece of Minty with the shadow, which turns out to be that of the G1 Twilight. The result? Twilight Sparkle!
During the Dark World Arc, Discord's little sister Rancor is this. She arrives to get close to Discord and ultimately steal back Destruction's power from him so it can be used for its intended purpose (Destruction's original job as an Anthropomorphic Personification), mortally wounding him in the process. This ends up throwing a gigantic wrench in Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox's plans, allowing Discord to Out Gambit her and alert Twilight to the true nature of the Dark World, forcing Paradox to expose herself to the heroes. The name Rancor chooses after succeeding (Disruption) couldn't be more appropriate. It's this trope especially because, while its implied she knew Paradox was there, she didn't care one way or the other what happened so long as her own mission was a success.
Part 6 of Shining Armor's Arc has Sergeant Thunderchild be this General-Admiral Makarov's attempt to kill Shining Armor. Makarov didn't even know his name, yet he shows up just in time to break through Makarov's Anti-Magic field and save Shining. This also buys time for more Shining's forces to show up in a Gunship Rescue and drive Makarov's forces off.
During the Wedding Arc, Prince Blueblood inadvertently foils Queen Chrysalis' plan just because he wanted to take a girl on a date. He lead his date through the caves under Canterlot, and ended up finding the imprisoned Princess Cadance.

In the Champions (5th edition) universe, the centuries long, multi-dimensional, wheels within wheels master plan of DEMON's secret master involves in it's final stages a literal Spanner in the Works. The precise timing that underlies the multiverse needs to be off just slightly for the rest of his plan to work and as such he has positioned a minion in the metaphysical boiler room of creation with a $10 hardware store spanner. Now he just needs the stars to align....

Kristoph Gavin's ultimate scheme in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney was meant to be the murder of Vera Misham via a poisoned postage stamp depicting the magician act Troupe Gramarye. However, the girl is such a huge fan of the Troupe that she saves the stamp for seven years; her father eventually uses the stamp instead and dies. The flaws in Gavin's plans run deeper than this, but this is his only apparent mistake; everything else is because of Phoenix Wright's meddling.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies sees Phineas Filch end up as one in the second case. Florent L'Belle's entire scheme, which took months of planning, backstabbing, manipulation, blackmail, threats, and outright murder - so much so that it's lampshaded how insanely complicated it all is by Apollo Justice - was all to have unrestricted access to the Forbidden Chamber in Nine-Tails Vale to steal a gold ingot supposedly contained inside of the Chamber. Filch, on the other hand, snuck into the Forbidden Chamber on a whim in fifteen minutes because he was bored. By doing so, Filch spooked Jinxie Tenma, which forced L'Belle to improvise a few things, proving to be his downfall in court.

When Tipping Forties LP'd Tales of Symphonia, they managed to go about 90 videos without using Presea, who they perceived as The Scrappy. The point was they hated the flatness of the character and refused to involve themselves with how stupid that part of the game was. Of course, they forgot the game was stupid (for that one instance, at least) and a scripted event forced them to use her. It nearly brought them to tears. Laser-Guided Karma.

Examples in My Hero Academia fanfic Conversations with a Cryptid:
Midoriya discussed this with All For One, as he discovers that something must have happened for the murderous supervillain to put his plans on hold. All For One cryptically says that plans can change. In fact, it was because of his marriage to Inko and Midoriya being born that caused All For One to change his plans so he could stay with them and/or keep them safe.
Another spanner is the Sludge Villain who proceeds to kidnap Midoriya, eventually resulting in All For One breaking out of prison to rescue his son.

He sent Shrek to get Fiona so Farquaad could become king in exchange for his swamp leading to Shrek and Fiona meeting. Fiona falls in love with and marries Shrek, which foils the plans of every subsequent villain in the seriesnote Fairy Godmother and Prince Charming's plan to have Charming marry Fiona and Rumpelstiltskin's attempt to seize the kingdom from Fiona's parents, just to clarify.

All throughout Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Jack repeatedly plots for the most favorable outcome (for himself), but stubborn fool Will Turner and arrogant jerkass Captain Barbossa assume they know best how to get things done, and nearly screw themselves out of their goals frequently. If Barbossa had wanted to cut Elizabeth's throat instead of her hand, Will would've been too late to save her on his own, and if Will had died like he should've when Barbossa ordered the Interceptor scuttled with Will trapped below, Barbossa would never have gotten Will's blood to pay Bill Turner's debt. Near the end of the film before the climactic battle, Jack has everybody where he wants them, but because Barbossa and Norrington don't trust him at all, his plans almost fall apart.
From the third movie, At World's End, it's Jack's turn to act as the Spanner which disrupts the East India Company's plan to wipe out the pirates at Shipwreck Cove. Faced with the imminent threat, the Brethren Court has gathered to choose a new pirate king; it's mentioned that this has happened many times in the past, but no king is ever chosen because every pirate inevitably votes for themselves, leaving the results tied at a single vote for everyone, preventing a new king from being chosen. Sure enough, as the vote goes around the table, every pirate puts in a vote for themselves...until Jack Sparrow casually votes for Elizabeth Swann, giving her two votes and thus the role of pirate king. As a result of her leadership, the East India Company (who came in expecting to massacre a bunch of unorganized pirates) instead found themselves facing an actual organized resistance.

Nanoha's presence in Game Theory derails Precia's carefully laid plans. But this turns out to be a subversion, because the events that disrupted Precia's original strategy actually made it possible for her to come up with a better plan that works flawlessly.

Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon end up doing this to Darth Maul in Darths & Droids. In a clever little inversion, this whole scenario is actually made up on the spot by the DM, after the events took place in which the players apparently screwed up everything by going Off the Rails. The author suggests this technique as a way of getting back at players who mess with your established scenario too much.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street: Sweeney Todd would have killed Judge Turpin and ended the movie right there and then in the middle had Anthony, who had recently talked to Sweeney about his plan to elope with Johanna in order to get her away from Turpin, not busted into his shop with the judge right there in the room in order to inform Sweeney that he has found Johanna and that she has agreed to the plan. Needless to say, this ends up blowing both the aforementioned plan and Sweeney's attempt to kill Turpin straight to hell.

In Hatoful Boyfriend's True Ending storyline, Dr Iwamine had won. Ryouta was mindless and implanted with the Charon Virus, Sakuya was emotionally broken, Yuuya and Hiyoko were both dead, and Kazuaki and Anghel were trapped. It takes two spanners to fix this. The first is Okosan, who snaps Sakuya out of his grief just in time to stop Anghel and Kazuaki from dying to nerve gas. This leads directly into the second - and most important - spanner, which is Anghel using his hallucinogenic pheromones to put Ryouta into a mental state where he could be talked down and prevented from wiping out humanity, thus unravelling everything Shuu had done up to that point. Needless to say, it's best not to fuck with the Joke Characters.

A History of Magic: The Incubators feared that this would happen in the form of an Anomaly, a person who has magical powers not granted by them, for they could awaken the magical powers in all of humanity. It was why they had arranged for Jesus to be crucified, after all. Their fear was eventually realized when Billy Kane used Haitian magic to become a Puer Magi, causing a chain reaction that resulted in thousands of teenagers spontaneously becoming Puer and Puella Magi without contracting.

S.W.A.T.: Alex Montel kills his uncle Martin Gascoigne for sticking his hand in The Syndicate's till, then takes Gascoigne's car to the airport to catch his flight home. On the way, he's pulled over by a motorcycle policeman because he has a tail light out. The officer then discovers there's an arrest warrant linked to the license plate and detains Montel "until we can verify who you are." Lampshaded by an FBI agent after Montel's identity is discovered:
This type of thing is very much Truth in Television, many real criminals are caught because of insignificant things that shouldn't have happened. One notable example is Timothy McVeigh, who was also caught when he was pulled over by a state trooper.

Quentyn Quinn in Tales of the Questor is a subversion. Instead of stupidity, it is a sense of honor and desire to help that make him accept quests which almost always indirectly monkey-wrench SOMEONE'S plans, generally without even knowing it. Examples:
A simple lack of knowledge led him to believe (and say) that human coins were forged. A politician's Oh, Crap! moment led a guard to realize they were indeed fakes—and who was behind it.
His very decision to become a Questor—paired with the discovery of an old contract—puts his home village in peril. The contract stated that the previous Questor was to retrieve some artifacts in exchange for land on which to build a village. The problem: the old Questor failed to do so, and now that there's a new Questor, a political faction intends to use that contract to get Freeman Downs repossessed and thus out of the picture. Quentyn's decision? Retrieve those artifacts, knowing that if he dies in the attempt, the law ensures that the contract ends with him. He knows nothing about the true scheme at work, and the opposing faction has no idea what to do now. The legal counsel sent to deliver the bad news summed this trope up rather perfectly:
His desire to help a human village ended with him in a position to UTTERLY screw over a fae—which he does so very EPICALLY. The fae in question calls a Wild Hunt on Quentyn, promising a wish if he survives. Quentyn barely manages to win, but it's now when the fae realizes to his horror that Quentyn is not only part of a race that's protected from the Hunt, but also under the protection of another being which doubly prohibits him. As punishment, the amount of wishes that the fae is supposed to give is tripled. The first two wishes are used to deprive him of everything he has. The third wish is a traditional "leave without taking revenge" wish...with an additional clause that forbids him from ever calling a hunt on that plane again.
And then there's Squidge, who is only too happy to prove that one can deliberately be this when he ruins Rahan's prank.

Since she was immune to the Sirens' Mind-Control Music, they instead opt to break her will to rebel against them with a few well-placed Armor Piercing Questions and a Hannibal Lecture. While it briefly sends Sunset into a Heroic BSoD, Sunset still ends up rallying the Rainbooms together and gets them to break free from the Sirens' Hate Plague.

The main cast of Drowtales are Manipulative Bastards and Chessmasters whose plans often wind up crashing into each other, but so far the biggest example of this trope is Ragini, a child slave who survived the massacre at the Val'Sharess tower and was able to keep said Queen alive for a year, and then later become host to her aura and escape. If it weren't for her things in the story would be much, much different, and the full extent of her spanning potential is just beginning.
The Big Bad, Snadhya'rune, is implied to consider Ariel a key part of her plans. This results in the Big Bad's "Well Done, Son!" Guy attacking Ariel out of jealousy, ensuring Ariel will never trust the Big Bad

Donovan Dijak was most responsible for bringing an end to The House Of Truth's second Ring of Honor run, the very same Dijak Truth Martini took in to prevent him from challenging for Jay Lethal's television title belt. He was paired with Joey Daddiego and redirected at the Tag Team titles of War Machine, but when he refused to use the Book Of Truth for an illegal advantage, Martini barred him from the group...and got kicked in the head as a result of this, allowing Prince Nana plenty of time to turn Dijak towards his own designs. Daddiego and Taeler Hendrix then went after Dijak and Nana in revenge, leaving Lethal basically on his own regarding Bullet Club, who swiftly positioned Adam Cole to take his last title belt.

He's plotted a perfect 18-minute window to be back before anyone knows it with a minor computer glitch to hide the theft.

In the Homestar Runner holiday toon "A Death-Defying Decemberween," Homestar announces to one and all that he's going to sled down the Steep Deep - a vertical cliff face - and Strong Bad catches The Cheat surreptitiously helping Homestar bury a mattress at the foot of the alleged slope. Of course, Strong Bad being Strong Bad, he moves the mattress expecting Homestar to maim himself on impact...but the next day, when Homestar sleds down the Steep Deep, he makes a perfect landing. As it turned out, the mattress was full of "hammers, broken glass and candy canes sucked down 'til they're all pointy"; the whole thing was a ridiculously elaborate (and painful) scheme for Homestar to get out of having to spend Christmas with his girlfriend Marzipan's parents, one that Strong Bad successfully sabotaged (even if the end result wasn't quite what he had been expecting).

In Dead of Summer, the Big Bad's backup plan to blow everyone up with a Time Bomb was thwarted because Tito and Otis saved Panther, who proceeded to disarm the bomb and save everyone.

Ace Attorney:
Kristoph Gavin's ultimate scheme in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney was meant to be the murder of Vera Misham via a poisoned postage stamp depicting the magician act Troupe Gramarye. However, the girl is such a huge fan of the Troupe that she saves the stamp for seven years; her father eventually uses the stamp instead and dies. The flaws in Gavin's plans run deeper than this, but this is his only apparent mistake; everything else is because of Phoenix Wright's meddling.
Larry Butz also counts, owing to his tendency to do unreasonable things that end with him stumbling onto vital evidence. In the first game, he was coincidentally returning a boat he had been using at precisely the right time to overhear a gunshot, in the third he shirked his work as a security guard when the villain's plan relied on him being at his post so that he would hear the noise of a panic button, rush into the room and arrest the wrong person and then in a later case his choice to wander around at night in the cold leads to him witnessing a number of things he wasn't meant to.
In the fourth case of Justice For All, the lead that helps Gumshoe and company track down Shelly de Killer is, of all things living and not living, Matt Engarde's cat, who meows at the end of a transmission from de Killer.
In the third case of Justice For All, Acro's plan to murder Regina was to call her to a specific point where he would drop a heavy weight on her head. Problem is, the note he secretly planted on Regina began with "To the murderer...". Due to Regina being very naive, she didn't think the note was for her, and posted it on the circus's bulletin board, where her father saw it and responded to it in Regina's place. Then you realize that Acro wanted to kill her because her naivete led to his brother being put into a coma, and he should have known that she would never realize the note was meant for her...
In Trials and Tribulations, Furio Tigre's plan to use Glen Elg's MC Bomber virus, worth several million dollars, to pay off his own million-dollar debt was annihilated because the moment the exchange was about to happen, Elg miraculously wins half a million in the lottery.
In the final case of Ace Attorney Investigations, the shenanigans of Larry Butz and Wendy Oldbag, of all people end up helping Miles Edgeworth put away the seemingly untouchable Big Bad. Larry, by accidentally breaking the Samurai Spear, forces the staff to have the Steel Samurai use a different move instead, thus enabling Edgeworth to realize that Alba was not at the Steel Samurai show while he was killing Manny Coachen. Wendy Oldbag takes the box of "Rising Sun Dogs," which turns out to have a drop of Alba's blood on it, and combined with Alba's wound, proves that he was injured while killing Coachen.
Larry gets to do this again in the manga. Simply by being arrested on suspicion of killing Bright Bonds (based on calling him and demanding that he get out of his ex-girlfriend's life), he derails the killer's plan to use him as an alibi, because she gets called in to prove his alibi, and through contradictions in her testimony, gets implicated as the murderer.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies sees Phineas Filch end up as one in the second case. Florent L'Belle's entire scheme, which took months of planning, backstabbing, manipulation, blackmail, threats, and outright murder - so much so that it's lampshaded how insanely complicated it all is by Apollo Justice - was all to have unrestricted access to the Forbidden Chamber in Nine-Tails Vale to steal a gold ingot supposedly contained inside of the Chamber. Filch, on the other hand, snuck into the Forbidden Chamber on a whim in fifteen minutes because he was bored. By doing so, Filch spooked Jinxie Tenma, which forced L'Belle to improvise a few things, proving to be his downfall in court.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice: The DLC case shows that Larry Butz's still got it; thanks to messily sneaking into a wedding reception because he was hopelessly infatuated with the bride, he not only screwed with the whole "time travel" theme and coverup that was attempted, his general interference also forced the culprit to enact his plan and murder his accomplice much earlier than intended, completely derailing everything and making it possible for the culprit to get caught.

In Unknown Armies, you can become an Avatar of an archetype by mimicking that archetype's classical behavior. One of those is The Fool, who can pull this off easily and walk away unscathed.

In Home, Pig the cat's presence spare Tip from being abducted with the rest of the humans. When the Boov are collecting the humans, Pig panics and clings to Tip's head. The scanner detects Pig instead of Tip and disregards them both, causing Lucy to be taken alone. Were it not for this twist of fate, Earth and the Boov would likely have been destroyed.

In The Atomic Brain, as shown on the TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000, in spades. The main plot for the villain Miss Marsh was for her to have her brain swapped with the prettiest girl of three chosen. That gets ruined when the homeliest of the three, who had her brain swapped with the cat's, gouges her eye out. Miss Marsh's companion tries to double-cross her, killing her and letting the remaining girl take her money, but Marsh kills him. The scientist, Dr. Otto Frank, pulls one by placing Miss Marsh's brain with the cat's, revealing that he wanted to keep her locked away in the cat so he could use her money to continue his research on reviving the dead. Miss March responds by locking him in the revival chamber and setting the dial to "Frag the entire house".

In A Few Good Men, it becomes apparent that the Department of the Navy very much wants the case of United States v. Dawson & Downey to be quietly resolved by a Plea Bargain so as to prevent incident from causing too much embarrassment to the Marine Corps. This plan is undone by the dual spanners of Galloway and Dawson; Galloway, because she senses something isn't right, and goads Kaffee in doing his due diligence for once instead of rushing to a Plea Bargain. Dawson, meanwhile, is too hardcore of a jarhead to willingly accept a dishonorable discharge because it'd be easier for him, telling Kaffee to take his plea bargain and shove it.

Spike has managed to do this twice. In Rainbow Rocks, after Sunset restores her friends' spirits, Spike has Vinyl Scratch free them from under the stage, allowing them to stop the Sirens at the concert. Then, in My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Friendship Games, being Human Twilight's Morality Chain helps her briefly snap out of being Drunk on the Dark Side, allowing Sunset to break through the dark magic that corrupted her.

Cyrano de Bergerac: Played hilariously straight: This play (a farce) has a lot of Gambit Pileup orchestrated by Cyrano, Roxane and De Guiche, but no one of them is capable of being an Unwitting Pawn for long.
Cyrano: Lampshaded by himself at Act II Scene VI: Unaware of it, he destroys De Guiche plan to set an arranged marriage with Roxane and De Valvert when he manipulates De Valvert to a duel.
De Guiche: When you apply Fridge Logic, you see that De Guiche was the Unwitting Instigator of Doom in his own plan to bully Roxane into a marriage with De Valvert at Act I Scene IV: When De Guiche makes a Dare to Be Badass to De Valvert, it’s only a small act, but it’s crucial because it sets a Disaster Dominoes scenario that ends with De Valvert being touched by Cyrano and so unable to marry Roxane. He also destroys his own plan to Buy Them Off Cyrano when he mentions that his uncle Richelieu could correct a line or two from Cyrano’s work.

In Season 9 of Survivor: Fan Characters, Prescilla/Bonnie has been controlling the entire game and has managed to take the two weakest players to the finals with her while tricking everybody into believing that she's just a sweet, innocent girl who couldn't POSSIBLY be an evil mastermind and gloats about how she has a 100% chance of winning the day just before the final Tribal Council. Then Cherman, the little robot who has been a Butt-Monkey for most of the game, reveals that he has a recorder he used to record Bonnie's Evil Gloating about how her only regret is that she didn't do more to hurt others. Your reign was nice while it lasted, Bonnie.

In The Matrix fic Rescue Run, Captain Dena Reese unknowingly serves as this to the Machines' cycle of control to keep the human population of Earth under their control; not only does she confirm that the Matrix has existed for longer than the two centuries the people of Zion believed, but she also helps them make contact with the human colonies in the rest of the solar system. Through her presence, the people of Zion are evacuated from Earth and relocated to a new green planet, while the spacefleet destroys the Machine mainframe and the Matrix to prevent the machines following them into space.

Lilo & Stitch: Jumba Jookiba creates Experiment 626, an alien with super strength and abilities, who comes to Earth causing mischief as Cobra Bubbles checks to see if Nani is a suitable guardian for her younger sister Lilo. Jumba starts pursuing 626, who disguises himself as a dog and gets adopted by Lilo who names him Stitch. When Jumba tracks Stitch to Lilo's house, the ensuing laser fight destroys it, which leads Cobra Bubbles to take Lilo into custody, and Lilo runs away, getting captured by Captain Gantu. Now that Jumba is fired and facing a prison sentence, he reluctantly teams up with Stitch to rescue Lilo. Stitch catches up to Gantu's spacebound ship and defeats Gantu, rescuing Lilo in the process. Just as Stitch is about to be taken away, Cobra Bubbles, who is impressed by Stitch's heroism, reminds Lilo that she purchased Stitch at a shelter, which means she has custody of Stitch. Stitch intervenes and tells the Grand Councilwoman that he found the family on his own, and that in spite of its small flaws, his adopted family still has much good in them. Now that Stitch has a family, Cobra helps them rebuild their house and even makes special holiday visits now and then.

In Vampire: The Requiem, the Circle of the Crone has the position of The Fool, whose sole purpose is acting as this. When the Circle needs something stopped they send in The Fool and watch stuff blow up. Basically it's like "so, you're a rather spirited walking corpse, eh? Say, could you go check out what that Invictus bastard is doing downtown? Just do whatever feels natural, I'm sure it'll be a blast." Fools who survive long enough to gain some measure of respectability might make it to the rank of Trickster, for whom the purpose is basically the same except the Trickster actually has some idea of what he is doing.

The ending of Layer Cake has the protagonist outclassed not by dumb luck, but by being shot. Because while he was really successful in tricking clever criminals in his Batman Gambit, he ends up shot (and possibly killed, it's a little vague) by a guy whose girlfriend he stole and whom he considered of little importance.
