Anticipation not moving in opposite direction?

We know that anticipation is one of the principals of animation. But whenever I read or watch something that talk about anticipation, it always says "anticipation, most of the time/almost always is moving the opposite direction from intended action".

Why everybody always said most of the time or almost always, as if can't be sure that anticipation is always moving the opposite direction? I'm not bashing anyone here, I'm just curious, what kind example of anticipation that are not moving in opposite direction? Since I can't think any examples for that.

Anticipation used to telegraph an action doesn't necessarily need to be in the opposite direction. An example could be as simple as a moving hold. Another could be an emotional anticipation (for instance, in order to read a particular emotion, you first anticipate with, say, "surprise").

Could you give me the example (in images preferably?), I'm sorry I still didn't quite understand (especially the emotion one).

One of the examples in moving hold was like this:

usually moving hold is put at 4th image right? But that's still the opposite direction of the intended run direction, right?

Sorry for the newbie question, just want to learn.
