** At the end of the ''Warlords of Draenor'' intro, you stop the Iron Horde's invasion of Azeroth by destroying the Dark Portal with their own giant siege tank. That they left conveniently nearby.

*** On the other hand, if you are against the Institue, they get killed by their brand new nuclear reactor meant to guarantee their future. In addition, they ended up letting the Sole Survivor live [[spoiler: as a back-up replacement for Shaun]] while killing everybody else in Vallout 11. In other hands, they choose to let the person who was primarily responsible for their downfall live.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'': In "You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head", you can non-lethally obtain the keys from the three Ghoul-haters, then take out Mr. Crowley himself with a headshot. Tenpenny rewards you for this, if he's still alive. Speaking of Tenpenny Tower, in the quest of the same name, you can arrange for the Ghouls to peacefully move in, but they change their mind and [[TrojanHorse kill the residents anyway]] after two weeks.

** Happens so frequently to Eggman that's it's become something of a RunningGag. He's been bitch slapped across the sky by the very creature [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure he tried to control]] He needed the Chaotix to rescue him from a room that Metal Sonic [[VideoGame/SonicHeroes locked him in. ]] He is bitch slapped ''again'' by yet another creature that he [[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed tried to control.]] And after finally managing to successfully capture the Time Eater, Sonic uses it to trap him in an [[VideoGame/SonicGenerations empty timeless void.]]

** The Scout's Boston Basher weapon (a nail [[BatterUp bat]]) inflicts "bleeding" status on whoever it hits. If he misses, he hits ''himself'' and suffers bleeding status, potentially killing himself.

* The Sycorax Nation in ''[[VideoGame/{{Thera}} Thera: Legacy of the Great Torment]]'', despite being [[FantasyCounterpartCulture stone-age native Americans]], are masters at turning other factions' fancy technologies against them. They're the only Mesocala "native" faction who can get access to horses, guns and ''elephants''.

* In the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series, Wario's signature [[Fartillery Wario Waft]] is his strongest attack, dealing a ridiculous amount of damage (And knockback as of Smash 4) when fully charged. However, it's also able to KO him if he rockets off the top of the screen with it accidentally. The AI isn't programmed to understand this and will occasionally self-destruct if you engage them in air combat towards the upper limits of a stage.
