*** 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.

** From the same game, Kratos steals Hercules' [[PowerFist cestus]] and uses it to cave his skull in, and kills a giant scorpion by impaling it on its own stinger. In the second game, Theseus is stabbed through the guts with his own spear and has his head smashed in with the door he was trying to prevent Kratos from passing through, and the Barbarian King is crushed with his own hammer.

* A few of the bosses in ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'' can't be damaged by Sonic and have to be defeated by turning their own weapons against them. A particularly glaring example is the machine Robotnik uses at the end of Lava Reef zone, as you don't even have to ''try'' to damage it; [[TacticalSuicideBoss it just repeatedly launches bombs that it seems to willfully redirect back into itself until it eventually explodes.]]
** In ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', when you fight Silver the Hedgehog, he tries to squish Sonic with a giant ball of debris when he's down to his last hit. When Sonic hits him, he's knocked into the ground and promptly ran over.

* In the ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' series, the entire series started with Cortex doing this. How, you might ask? By mutating Crash in the first place, and insisting on using the Cortex Vortex on him without figuring out why it wasn't working on Crash. Naturally, Crash escaped, then went and brought down Cortex's entire army. And then he did it a bunch more.

* The 8-bit-era parody adventure game ''Bored Of The Rings'' has in one area a basilisk; if the protagonist (Fordo) enters that area without protection, the basilisk accidentally kills him with its gaze. As indicated in the Mythology and Religion section, the solution is to carry a mirror, so that the basilisk kills itself instead.
