** Frieza's brother Cooler was hoisted even higher. As shown in ''Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge'', he and his squadron were watching as his younger brother destroyed the homeworld of the Saiyans, and had a chance to fire on an escaping space-pod. Cooler let it go, saying his brother was "too soft" for letting a child escape and it was his problem. Years later, when he went gunning after Goku to avenge Frieza, he was soundly trounced by the child he allowed to escape, who happened to be Goku. (As incredible irony, his realization of his mistake would not come until had clearly lost the battle with Goku, and was mere seconds away [[HurledIntoTheSun from hitting the Earth's sun.]])

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': It is already ironic that Kirei Kotomine was killed with the Azoth dagger he gave Rin years before. What is even more interesting is that the dagger was given to him in the ''[[LightNovel/FateZero prequel]]'' by Rin's father, Tokiomi Tohsaka who was Kirei's teacher. It was then used to stab Tokiomi by Kirei while Tohsaka's Servant Archer (''LightNovel/FateZero'''s Archer, aka, Gilgamesh) watched impassively.

** During their final battle in the Fate route, Rider lures Saber to a building's roof, because she needs a wide open space to summon her Pegasus. Saber then notes that with a wide open space, she can finally unleash [[SwordBeam Excalibur]] without risk of collateral damage, and obliterates Rider and her Pegasus.

** Team Rocket's been hit with things like this from time to time. In one instance, at the end of the Johto arc, they capture Pikachu using a massive magnet, causing him to fall ill and begin to dangerously overcharge. In the very first episode of the Hoenn arc, they capture the ill Pikachu again, using a machine to absorb Pikachu's electricity, not knowing that all they've done is helped him release the excess electricity he had built up that ''they'' caused.

** Jiemma, the head of the Sabretooth guild, is a SocialDarwinist who imposes his doctrine upon his guild, outright stating that "no weaklings are allowed in Sabretooth." Later, when he kills Lector right in front of Sting, Sting is pissed off enough that he takes Jiemma down with one blow; Minerva subsequently kicks him out of Sabretooth in accordance with Jiemma's own rules, as he had proved himself to be weaker than Sting.

** This could also be construed as how Team [=5Ds=] defeated Team Ragnarok. Harold's Trap Card, Gjallarhorn, would have banished all three of his Divine Beast monsters in three and then deal damage to Yusei equal to their ATK, ''and'' make them and Harold nearly invincible until that happened. Yusei was able to turn this card against him by summoning Shooting Star Dragon for the first time. This causes Harold to use his Odin's Eye Trap, which again, is what Yusei was expecting; he counters with a Trap of his own to shanghai control of the Trap, making the three Divine monsters vulnerable; a second Trap causes their Scores to drop to zero, meaning when the effect of Gjallarhorn finally activates, Yusei takes no damage at all. Harold, however, is now defenseless, and wide open.

* ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'': Fav turns several girls into magical girls with unique powers, then manipulates them into fighting and killing each other for his amusement.

Ripple picks up Swim Swim's halberd, a magical weapon able to actually damage the terminal.

* Nakamura-sensei from ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'' tries several times to capture [[RobotGirl Nano]] for her studies. All of her attempts backfire horribly, but the incidents with the paralysis powder stand out: Nakamura laces coffee with the powder and invites Nano to drink, hoping it will put her to sleep so she can capture Nano. The first time Nakamura was not paying attention and gave Nano the wrong cup, while the second time she [[TooDumbToLive sipped the excess coffee from the spiked cup to prevent it from spilling]].

*** It's also stated the Frieza's the one who created the Super Saiyan legend - when he destroyed Planet Vegeta, he ended up sending Bardock to the planet's past, where Frieza's ancestor confronts him. Their fight leads to Bardock becoming a Super Saiyan and killing him; with the ancestor's dying breath, warns them of the golden-haired warrior.
*** Also'd apply when Frieza killed Krillin, since that was what finally triggered Goku's transformation into Super Saiyan. If he instead just fought Goku immediately, he could have easily won and avoid the situation in which he cut himself in half altogether.
