* ''FanFic/EscapeFromTheMoon'': [[spoiler: The decision to make Spliced Genome immortal was decried by countless as an ill advised measure, including Spliced Genome herself. The people holding the Idiot Ball disagreed.]]

* ''FanFic/EscapeFromTheMoon'': [[spoiler: The decision to make Spliced Genome immortal [[spoiler: immortal]] was decried by countless as an ill advised measure, including Spliced Genome herself. The people holding the Idiot Ball disagreed. In the sequel ''The Mare From the Moon'', Spliced Genome ''was'' content to wait out her time on the moon, and had been reforming slowly after almost three hundred years of no conflict between her and her jailers. But then one of them grabbed firm hold of this trope and activated a death trap, triggering her RageBreakingPoint. [[spoiler: Word of God is that it was done by an individual without permission and against standing orders to leave her alone.]]

* PlayedForLaughs in ''FanFic/ChildOfTheStorm.'' Harry kvetches to Carol about having to carry [[BigEater]] Ron up eight flights of stairs after the latter falls into a food coma. Not only is he [[ForgotAboutHisPowers both a telekinetic and a wizard who knows how to do a basic Levitation Charm,]] he also has a pair of highly intelligent, pony-sized wolves with him who would probably be willing to carry Ron on their back.

* Ino in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3665921/51/Black-Flames-Dance-In-The-Wind-Rise-of-Naruto Black Flames Dance in the Wind: Rise of Naruto]]'' throws real kunai at the training grounds instead of practice ones (which have a foam tip) and nearly hits Sakura when she misses her target. What makes it worse is her sensei had previously chewed her out for that very action, citing that not only could she kill someone doing that, but one such death once caused a blood feud between two clans.

to:

* In ''WebVideo/MyLittlePonyTotallyLegitRecap'' Twilight and Spike share a "Common Sense Switch" between them, and whoever it's flipped on towards will be the rational one for the episode while the other's dumb ideas will drive the plot. Most clearly seen when Twilight attempts to babysit while running a bunch of errands, including visiting a hospital of sick children, and going through all the trouble of winning back her stolen crown instead of just taking it back (albeit with a belated justification), all over Spike's consistent and rational objections.

* In the ''Star Trek: Renegades'' pilot, everyone seems overly fond of the "vaporize" setting on their phasers, even when it might be useful to question someone. When TheManBehindTheMan shows himself, Chekov's security expert immediately kills him, despite knowing that he may be the only one who can stop [[spoiler:the portal about to destroy Earth]], simply shrugging and referencing old habits when the incredulous Chekov asks why. Borrada also holds the ball when he continues to blame the Federation for something that it supposedly did ''before'' it was ever founded.

*In the fanfic ''IProopedMyPants'' all of the characters get this at some point. After their mansion burns down, the Zharjeks all take minimum wage jobs at a hotel, even though they are still supermodels. And when the Mafia kidnaps [[spoiler:Tiffany]], they let her use her phone as long as she doesn't use it to call the police.
