* This is the mainstay of every fail / wtf moment videos in ''VideoGame/{{Dota2}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Hearthstone}}'', and practically any multiplayer games out there. ''Especially'' Hearthstone, as the RandomNumberGod there can utterly screw you, with ''Doomsayer'' as its favored harbinger.

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter 3 Ultimate'' introduces Hunters for Hire, in which you can hire 1-4 CPU-controlled versions of hunters you've met (e.g. via [[Nintendo3DS StreetPass]]) to do a quest for you, with varying odds of success. Occasionally, hired hunters will fail quests that should be trivial given their equipment, Hunter Rank, and party size, such as failing a simple "Hunt a [[WarmUpBoss Great Jaggi]]" quest (one hunter apparently [[https://twitter.com/MonHunProblems/status/456504182602596353 hired a team of G-Rank hunters]] to do this, which '''failed anyway''') or, even worse, failing a low-rank quest in which the objective is to deliver items that can be easily gathered.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/EnterTheGungeon'' has an example of this, where [[spoiler:the Bullet's uncle]] tried to "aim and fire" their ancestral weapon and nailed themselves in the head with it. [[spoiler:The weapon in question is a ''sword''.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon 2}}'' has a new weapon class called the Dualies, which has the player shoot ink out the "magazine" in order to dodge roll; the ink mechanics in the game make it so there is no such thing as friendly fire. Despite all of this, Pearl still manages to ''[[BeyondTheImpossible splat herself]]'' in this exact fashion.

* In ''Videogame/YuGiOhReshefOfDestruction'', when dueling Bandit Keith, he can and will tribute three monsters to summon the Winged Dragon of Ra... in Sphere Mode. A Divine Monster with 0 Attack and Defense. (Even worse, a Divine Monster cannot defeat any other monster using the [[ElementalRockPaperScissors Attribute advantage house rules]], making it ''completely'' worthless. This is even funnier if beforehand, his monsters had been defeating you.)

* Most deaths in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' are from pretty obvious causes, what with the titular endless [[EverythingsTryingToKillYou Player vs Player war]] going on. However, in addition to being shot/stabbed/beaten by other characters, there are lots of things in the game that do tiny amounts of damage and it's possible to ignominiously die of any of them. One player [[http://wiki.nexuscla.sh/wiki/index.php?title=User:WikiMallich/Exotic_Deaths keeps a running tally]] of every one of these documented fails.

** ''The moments when a Pokemon (wild or AI-controlled) uses a move that drags out a Pokemon which is immune to most, if not all of their moves is good for a chuckle too.''
