You hear about it, every now and then. About rising rates of depression among year olds.
You've got me right where I want you. It sends a clear message: Mylar balloons and a bottle of champagne, that's just twisting the knife. A character has come up with a perfect plan to ensnare an opponent.
The foe is surely doomed. However, the foe has set up a superior plan, one that makes the first plan look pathetic. In short, the first plan has been Out-Gambitted. This trope specifically has three parts: Alice makes Plan A.
Bob makes Plan B in response. Plan A goes down in flames. Bob makes Plan B in anticipation of Alice making plan A.
This is one of the reasons why the Unspoken Plan Guarantee works. And this was possible because Father's own Evil Plan required that solar eclipse. Furthermore, Hohenheim's allies undo the seal Father put on everyone else's alchemy by using Father's own transmutation circle.
Every duel seems to boil down to "Who will Out-Gambit who? All players use their cards and strategies, putting a gambit against enemies and sometimes two duelists can be Out-Gambitted multiple times in the same duel.
Yami Yugi's duels are almost always about how his gambit destroys his enemy's gambit. Here's an example from 5D's done by Yusei. Greiger decides not to destroy either one, speculating that it's actually a ploy to make him deplete his hand uselessly. It turns out he's right: But since Greiger doesn't destroy either card, Yusei reveals that was covered, too: Happens incredibly often in YuYu Hakusho.
Technically Yusuke's death falls in this category; Jaki's attempt at turning Kuwabara to the Dark Sidepossibly for a stronger host; Yusuke outwitting Goki with little difficulty and then later Hiei, back when they first met; Kurama's fight with Roto; Kurama outwitting Kaito although that was technically supposed to happen ; Sensui and Toguro both getting their way despite the team's actions.
There's also the fight between Yusuke and Kibano. Who used a mask that shuts out the other senses to focus on sensing spirit energy and uses it to fight Yusuke in the dark. The mask however is also the reason Kibano was unable to see or smell the cigarette Yusuke puts on him to find him through the darkness.
In part 3, Dio launched a barrage of knives against Jotaro, which made him fall quite a long distance. Too bad that's just what Jotaro wanted, because he got a free hit while Dio was closing in.
Earlier, Jotaro successfully Out-Gambitted D'Arby in their poker gamewhere the stakes were the souls of him, Joseph, and Polnareff - the boy that Jotaro choose to give the cards was working for D'Arby, and gave Jotaro weak cards, but Jotaro refused to look at them, making D'Arby think that he had switched them, and adds too much to the stakes, with the possibility that losing would equal D'Arby's death, playing a Batman Gambit that made D'Arby break down.
Every fight in Jojo, considering that it's a series where intelligence goes far beyond strength, results in one of the fighters being Out-Gambitted. One of the earliest examples lies in part 1, when Dio planned to have Johnathan cut him in order to take hold and freeze him.
Johnathan Out-Gambitted him by cutting him at an area with the tip of his sword at the torch that allows him to defrost himself.TOP TEN FILMS OF THE s Return to Main Film Page 1.
