* ''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.

** In "Le Big Switch" Krabs exchanges Spongebob for a french chef from a high quality restaurant during an exchange program in hopes that customer demand for fine expensive food will increase his profits. Things don't go well for Spongebob in his new surroundings initially since [=SpongeBob=] is incapable of cooking anything but Krabby Patties, to the degree where he can't even fry an egg without it instantly transforming into a burger. However his epic fail becomes an epic win when both his boss and his rich clientele both enjoy his Krabby Patties so much they latch onto his ankles begging him not to go back to the Krusty Krab after the exchange ends.
** In "Tutor Sauce", when Mr. Krabs tried to teach SpongeBob to drive a boat, he ended up hitting the Krusty Krab ''every time'' no matter where he was, even with ''an arcade game''.

** In the 7th season episode "A Farewell to Arms" when the inhabitants of Earth are returning from Mars by having Mars directly enter Earth's atmosphere, Leela gets stuck at the bottom and Fry offers to pull her down.

** In "Peter Problems" Peter is promoted to a forklift operator and is eventually fired for negligence. Now stuck at home he tries to prepare dinner, then somehow ends up putting three raw chickens at the table, and when he realizes his mistake he finds that he somehow put Chris in the oven, put Stewie in the freezer, and decapitated Meg and put her head in the microwave, which then explodes in a splatter of gore. They're all perfectly fine later.
