** Poison Ivy in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' is ultimately undone by her own kiss and her plants. When she finally gets Robin alone she is able to get him to kiss her by telling him her plans, as a sign of trust between lovers, but immediately shows her true colors after their kiss. Robin reveals he protected himself from her poison with rubber lips, and Poison Ivy had just given herself away, failing Robinís SecretTestOfCharacter to see if she loves him. Shortly afterwards she is defeated by Batgirl and knocked back onto her own Rose Throne, which closes on her and traps her. The Rose Throne was part of her seduction of Robin, a sign of her false love to him, being where they shared their kiss and after Robin outsmarted her she angrily shoves him from it, out of its range of harm. Ultimately her seductions of Robin led to her own undoing.

* In ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'', Barbossa not only cites the code at the gathering of the Brethren Court, but calls on Captain Teague to enforce it, all to avoid fighting Beckett. Jack's motion for the Court to fight won't be entertained because only the elected Pirate King can declare war, and there's no King because a Pirate Lord will always only vote for himself. So Jack calls for an election, lets everyone else vote for themselves, then throws his support behind Elisabeth, who's gung-ho for bringing war on Beckett. Now Barbossa ''has to'' go to fight Beckett, since he not only cited the rule that says Elizabeth can declare war, but called on Teague as well. He's got a better chance of surviving a war than a fight with Teague.

* Lampshaded in the 1969 farce ''Film/MonteCarloOrBust'' (known in the U.S. as ''Those Daring Young Men In Their Jaunty Jalopies''). The unscrupulous Sir Cuthbert (Creator/TerryThomas) has several fiendish schemes backfire on him rather nastily. At one point his put-upon henchman Perkins (Creator/EricSykes) turns to him and says "Hoist with your own petard! Well, it serves you jolly well right."

* In the 1997 film version of ''Film/PrinceValiant'', Morgan le Fay tries to blow sleep dust into Princess Ilene, but Ilene sneezes, which blows the dust back at Morgan. She gets drowsy and falls to her death. Later, Ilene knocks a mook who was wielding a primitive flamethrower into a vat of oil, with predictable results.

** Skynet's also engineers its own demise thanks to trying to assassinate [[TheHero John Connor]] [[RetGone retroactively]]: not only did John Connor learn how to fight Terminators from future versions attacking him as a child, but John Conner was only conceived because [[StableTimeLoop his father followed the first T-800 back to save him in the first place.]] In Skynet's defence [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption it already lost.]]

* In the ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' first movie]], Jafar has Aladdin cornered and brags that he's the most powerful being ever and that Aladdin is nothing without the Genie. This gives Aladdin the idea to claim that his power is only second to the Genie's, tricking him into using his last wish to become an all-powerful genie, resulting in being imprisoned in his own lamp.
** ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'': At the climax, Jafar opens the earth and traps our heroes in a lava pit...only to eventually have [[spoiler: Iago]] [[AchillesHeel kick his lamp into the lava]], causing Jafar to electrocute, then explode into nothingness.
