Part of the fun of a tabletop RPG is letting the dice affect the story. Sometimes, the dice will make characters behave in unexpected ways, even changing their characterization. Occasionally, they can be unexpectedly awesome. I once DMed for a character who was so hard to hit despite middling AC that we just declared them a true badass, and said projectiles dodged them out of fear. Other times, it can show a surprise weakness, like a fighter I played who was trained in Insight but was exceptionally gullible.

It can be exciting to see a surprising quality appear in a character. It can also be frustrating if Eagle-Eyes the badass sniper turns out to be almost legally blind.
