* A huge portion of the central conflict in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' could've been avoided if [[spoiler: Maledict had come right out and told Sonic that he was his father and that he needed his help]] ''before'' Tsali got there first and tried to kill Sonic. Also, the Metarex leaders continued to trust M/[[spoiler: Maledict]] even while they were slowly ''losing'' the Metarex War.
** Also, Tsali grabs it in Episode 73 - he could've easily killed Cosmo and escaped without anyone noticing if he didn't stop to gloat (and murder all of her friends first). Trinity lampshades it in the rewrite, and it's revealed that Tsali [[AxCrazy wants to watch her and her friends suffer before they die]].

* In the [=MST=] treatment of ''FanFic/TomSwiftAndHisWarTank,'' Ned and Mr Damon keep a firm grip on this at all times, but it seems that anyone who isn't Tom gets their sticky mitts on it at some point.

-->'''Servo''': Ah, it all becomes clear, now. The residents of Shopton, except for the Swifts, share a collective intelligence. Someone else in town must be buttoning their coat and thereby placing a strain on the town's remaining IQ resources.

* {{Lampshaded}} in "Fanfic/PastContinuous". Eleya remarks in her InternalMonologue that the coalition could have avoided a lot of trouble by basing the effort to retake Deep Space 9 out of a nearby Bajoran military base instead of the middle of a major city.

* 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 ''[[Fanfic/NobodyDies Neon Genesis Evangelion: Nobody Dies]]'', Kaworu is very enthusiastic about [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre maintaining the species]] with Rei. The Idiot Ball? The first attempt fails by loss of [[NoodleIncident Ocular Virginity]]. The second by [[DestinationDefenestration Defenestration]]. He still tries.

* In ''[[Fanfic/NobodyDies Neon Genesis Evangelion: Nobody Dies]]'', ''Fanfic/TheChildOfLove'': Sigh. Shinji. [[spoiler:Your own unborn daughter is warning you telepathically about your father's plans and asking you being strong and being there for Asuka and her.]] And what do you do? Losing your nerve and breaking up because you think you are not strong enough to protect them.

* In the ''{{Firefly}}/Series/DoctorWho'' crossover fanfic ''Fanfic/TheManWithNoName'', some of the characters are hunting Reavers. When they stop, thinking they've heard something, [[ItsProbablyNothing the Doctor keeps going anyway]], walking smack right into one. Even the Doctor admits it was blindingly stupid.

And he still prolongs the negotiations to get better terms and claims that Elsa's weak. Even his own son calls him out on this.
