* In the BeachEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'', [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/kaeloo/images/2/21/Unnamed8.gif/revision/latest?cb=20161121131057 Stumpy failing to catch a volleyball]] actually counts as an epic fail.

** In "Mom and Pop Art," when Homer attempts to build a barbecue, he has several epic failures in short succession. All he manages to build is a chaotic pile of the grill's components (including, somehow, his wristwatch) embedded in a slab of concrete. Angrier than usual, Homer charges the debris with an umbrella like DonQuixote after beating it with a pipe, with about the same measure of success.

* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'': Mulan is getting ready for her first meeting with the matchmaker. It starts badly, then gets progressively worse. It involves [[NoodleImplements a renegade cricket, some badly placed ink, a teapot, and]] [[KillItWithFire fire.]]
* From the film ''Disney/BrotherBear'':
-->'''Moose #1:''' I can't believe you totaled a mammoth.\\
'''Moose #2:''' That mountain came out of nowhere. It was in my blind spot.
* In ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'', the animals set up an audition with studio head L.B. Mammoth that is sabotaged by the villainous Darla Dimple far beyond what should be probable or even possible. Flooding the stage? Well, maybe. Flooding ''the entire studio''? Pretty far-fetched. But wait, there's more: accidentally dragging L.B. himself behind you on your anchor as your prop boat floats through the streets, crashing into buildings? Ouch. Accidentally getting him tied to the mast when the boat sinks? Epic Fail.



-->'''Robotnik:''' Think you can manage ''that'' without [[TemptingFate falling on your faces?]]
-->'''Scratch:''' No problem.
-->'''Grounder:''' Can do.
-->''(they proceed to do just that)''

* In what is most likely a ShoutOut to the infamous Ulong tribe of ''Survivor'', [[IronicName Team Victory]] in ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama World Tour]]'' loses ''every single'' elimination challenge and is completely wiped out before the season is even halfway over. The reason is not the unfitting name, but because of the Curse of the Mummified Dog DJ put on himself for his team.

* The ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'' episode "Invasion of the Dads" is full of this. Mr. Turner causing a flood while trying to fix the plumbing seems reasonable, right? Well, he ended up causing a flood ''every time he used a monkey wrench, even when there was'' '''''no''''' ''water involved''. It even happened when all he did was open the door.

* [[WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines The Vulture Squadron]] is lucky that they're able to get their planes in the air, let alone botch up every operation in their efforts to stop Yankee Doodle Pigeon.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'', after Mr. Potato has shouted "Prepare to meet... MR. ANGRY EYES!!", he [[RummageFail accidentally puts a extra pair of shoes into his eye socket instead of his actual "angry eyes"]]. He then proceeds to run into the wall.

*** In "Pickles", [=SpongeBob=] has to temporarily give up his job as fry cook for reasons irrelevant, Squidward takes over temporarily, and epic fail ensues. The customers cry out "He burnt my krabby patty," "He burnt my fries!" and finally: "He burnt my shake!"

* This was sometimes Zigzagged in the earliest ''WesternAnimation/BenTen'' comics; often, Ben would use the Omnitrix and mistakenly turn himself into an alien other than the one he had wanted. (For instance, in one case he thought the super-strong Four-Arms was best for the crisis, but instead he got the super-smart (but physically weak) Grey Matter. Nevertheless, he was usually able to solve the problem with whatever he got.

** In that same opening storyline, Starscream tries to shoot Megatron dead in front of his men. ''Twice''. And fails both times. So pathetic is this attempt at treachery that, both times, Megs can't be bothered to kill him, opting to rub it in his face, land a non fatal shot, and go about his day.
