* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': In a short story, the Super grows tired of Mortadelo and Filemón's incompetence and plots to get them fired. He tasks them with keeping safe a very important document, only to steal it himself. After his attempts to steal the document fail one after another, he overhears Mortadelo talking to the T.I.A. managing director and mentioning that the document is hidden in a cigar they left on the Super's desk... which turns out to be [[OhCrap the same cigar he is smoking]]. The Super is subsequently fired (but thankfully for him, NegativeContinuity is in effect).

*** When Comicbook/{{Lobo}} fought Supergirl, he thought of driving her irrationally mad so she was unable to fight effectively. So he pushed her {{Berserk Button}}s constantly, taunted her and mocked her until she flew off the handle... and pummelled him brutally.

* ''ComicBook/Noob'': Comic 12 has three players from the next day's rival virtual sports team plan to take shifts in basically ding-dong ditching Kévin/Sparadrap (a GeniusDitz at the sport) all night so Noob's best player will be sleep-deprived the next day. They didn't count on the fact that he was sharing his room with someone who is more astute than him, sleep-deprived into a very bad mood and extremely protective of him. The dressing-down they get from the room's other occupant keeps them up all night (they even consider all moving in together after the tournament because they don't want to sleep alone anymore).

** Joe Coyne of the 1940s story "The Penny Plunderers" does this ''twice.'' A penny-themed criminal, when he traps Batman and Robin in a Death Trap, he smugly tosses them two pennies, to symbolize that their lives will only be worth two cents. However, one of the pennies is made of zinc, and Batman is able to fashion a makeshift distress beacon to call for help and is rescued. Later, when the Dynamic Duo track Coyne down, Coyne needs to call the rest of his gang for help. However, the only phone in the room he's in is a payphone. ''One that will only work if given a nickel.''
-->Coyne's hand comes out of his pocket carrying all the coins he is carrying- Five cents - '''but in pennies!'''\\
'''Coyne:''' '''No...''' They're no good to me... No good at all! It's a '''''pay phone!''''' '''I need a''' '''''single nickel''''' '''to be able to''' '''''dial!'''''\\
And then Coyne realizes he is lost! His obsession for pennies has become his '''doom!'''

* This is what allows ComicBook/CaptainAmerica to enact his plan in ''ComicBook/SecretEmpire'' - Maria Hill, former Director of ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}, had found evidence of Cap secretly being a member of ComicBook/{{HYDRA}}. She contacts Rick Jones with this news, but he seems incredibly doubtful and ultimately rejects this, specifically due to the fact that saying something like this is the sort of stunt she would have pulled ever since she took over S.H.I.E.L.D.

** When he discovered Kubix, a living Cosmic Cube, could alter memories, the Skull came up with a genius idea. He had Kubik alter Captain America's memories so Steve was convinced he'd been a decades-long deep cover Hydra operative, believing in them totally. The Skull figured with Captain America a willing agent, Hydra would rise higher than ever. But Steve became convinced he was loyal to the "true" Hydra that the Skull had warped and the Skull was holding them back so began his moves to take over Hydra for himself. In a confrontation, the Skull admits what he did...and is shocked that Steve doesn't believe his memories could have been warped and [[spoiler: kills the Skull to take over Hydra.]]
