* Possibly as a consequence of trying to quickly analyze and play games during videos, the ''WebOriginal/AngryVideoGameNerd'' has failed at basic game mechanics more than a few times:
** While playing ''VideoGame/{{Ghostbusters}}'' on the Sega Master System, he complains that you can only shoot upward in a 45 degree angle. Apparently he failed to try ''the other button on the controller'' that shoots horizontally.
** While playing ''VideoGame/TheWizardOfOz'' he remarks that only Dorothy and the Lion can shoot. All the characters can shoot objects (Though there is one kind of ammo that only Dorothy can use), leaving [[SoBadItsHorrible the three fans of that game]] to wonder if he just didn't have any ammo left when he tried to shoot.
** His "finest" moment is trying to beat ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania 64}}'', when he finds a "GameBreakingBug" at the [[ThatOneLevel Nitro Glycerine Quest]]. He complains that he can't lay down the nitro, but only ever tries to do so from the menu and apparently never tried just examining the wall which will lay down the nitro. However, to his credit, he also claims he can't discard the items in the "Hazardous Materials Disposal" and is show examining one, so it ''is'' possible he actually does have a glitched copy of the game (if it's not just ManipulativeEditing).

* Since TableTop features players that are new to the games, quite a bit of fail is built in (but it's handled all in good fun). The EpicFail comes in as the host and longtime gamer, WilWheaton, almost never wins. His most notable win came as a result of someone else's EpicFail. During a game of Fluxx, one player did some mumbling and card reading to himself, lots of hand examination, and such for what he thought was going to be the game-winning play. He makes the play and discovers that, by misreading two different cards, he caused Wil to actually win as a result.

* Not many [=LPers=] die on the first part of a sometimes incredibly easy part of a video game. That's where CrazyCommentaries comes in. In their first Mario 64 video, one of the members dies by losing health to Bob-ombs, rolling balls, and not getting any health. The thing that really cements this into Epic Fail territory was how he died. He jumped directly into a rolling ball, not even trying to get away from it.

* [[https://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/61/fiasco This podcast]] is about a production of ''Theatre/PeterPan'' that became an utter fiasco in which the flying apparatus smacks the actors into the furniture, and Captain Hook's hook flies off his arm and hits an old woman in the stomach. By the end of the evening, firemen have arrived and all the normal boundaries between audience and actors have completely dissolved.

** There's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1oVnDboM10 another]] featuring ChipCheezum and General Ironicus, where they watch an LP of ''VideoGame/PokemonYellow'' with the screen zoomed in so far that it removes a third of the frame. Besides this, Chip is left gobsmacked when the player loses to a Pidgey, a Flying type. The Pokemon he was using? A Pikachu, an Electric type. In other words, the [=LPer=] lost with a Pokemon type his enemy was weak against!

* The Website/YouTube [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl2RQzEY2XU&feature=related video]] "[[UsefulNotes/PlaystationVita PSVITA]] [[UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars VS]] [[Nintendo3DS 3DS]]" is either this trope or RefugeInAudacity. Basically it shows a side-by-side comparison of the handhelds' respective graphics done with the two versions (in-game and CGI) of [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep the fight between Master Xehanort and Terra, Ventus and Aqua]]... ''while claiming the in-game graphics to be those of the 3DS and the CGI graphics to be those of the PSV''. Not only is it ridiculous, [[CriticalResearchFailure but also the truth is the exact opposite]]: the 3DS can pull off better graphics than BBS, while those of the Vita can't reach those boasted by, you know, ''a FullMotionVideo''.

** A man who fancies himself a computer demigod is called upon to fix a problem with the printer. His attempt to refill the toner ends up shorting out the printer and an air conditioner unit next to it. Then he makes it worse by trying to clean up the mess and smearing the toner all over and he washes the keyboard off with water. On top of all that, the printer was out of ''paper'', not toner.
