** Of course, thanks to a bug in the original Excalipoor, it did as much damage as the Excalibur ''when thrown''. So when Gilgamesh's opponent is inevitably hit by the sword that Gilgamesh threw away, it hits {{for massive damage}}.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Dota2}} Dota 2]]'' has enough ways for players to fail horribly that it warranted its own long-running "[[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE14F2057980335BE Fails of the Week]]" series. Heroes that are particularly prone to this include Pudge[[note]]whose hook snags the first unit it touches - friend or foe - and pulls them back to Pudge... that is, if he [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy doesn't just miss outright]][[/note]], Naga Siren[[note]]whose ultimate, Song of the Siren, puts nearby enemies to sleep but also makes them invulnerable, which can easily screw up allies' spell combos[[/note]], and (for some reason) Nature's Prophet.

* Annoying trainers in ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' (and the remakes) will call you every once in a while...and some call to say that they failed to catch a ''Pidgey''. Yes, a ''[[ComMons Pidgey]]''. You have about a 33% chance of catching Pidgey that's at full strength with no status conditions and a plain old Poké Ball, yet they were ''trying'' and couldn't catch it!

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', your character and the girls have a cook-off to make omelettes for young Nanako, but the girls prove [[LethalChef incompetent at cooking]]. However, Yukiko in particular stands out. While the other girls' dishes come out [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce dangerously spicy]] or just plain awful, Yukiko manages to cook an omelette that has ''no taste at all.'' How she accomplished this, we may never know. But hey, better than the [[strike:curry]] "Mystery Food X" that ''knocked out'' you and Yosuke!

If an Epic Fail results in the player's death or failure, you have YetAnotherStupidDeath. When it's the AI doing it, you have ArtificialStupidity.
