* Apparently the T-X from ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'' has a sub-routine that makes it clutch the ball several times. Most notably when it's imitating Scott (Kate's fiance) and she is running toward it. What does it do? [[TooDumbToLive Turns back to the form Kate already knows is a killing machine well ahead of time]], giving Kate ample time and distance to be rescued. Though it may be a case of ArtificialStupidity, neither the [[Film/TheTerminator obsolete T-800]] or the [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay T-1000]] made moves like this, and the T-X is [[InformedAbility alegedly far more intelligent and advanced]].

** And when we get to the Original Trilogy, in the light of events of the Prequel Trilogy, Palpatine's response to Luke's refusal to be turned to the Dark Side is truly idiotic: He proceeds to try to torture Luke to death, in front of his father, while Luke begs his father for help, despite the fact that ''offering Anakin the power to preserve the lives of his family was the key to getting him to turn to the Dark Side''. He may have hoped [[ThatManIsDead Anakin was dead]], but he didn't even think of the possibility!

Palpatine's plan to sway Luke to the Dark Side to begin with was even more idiotic: simply put it "ha ha I've lured your friends into a death trap... so now you're my apprentice I guess! Go Team Dark Side!" At least with Anakin he actually offered the guy a desirable incentive to [[FaceHeelTurn turn bum on the Republic]].

* Sandman / Flint Marko from ''Film/SpiderMan3'', after being foiled by ol' Web Head, decides that he'll never be able to get the money he needs to help his daughter as long as the web slinger is around and decides to take him out. Considering he can ''fly'' and regular police and military can't stand a chance against him, it never occurs to him to just cross the Hudson and hit a bank in Jersey City, ''where Spider Man doesn't fight crime.'' That's also not considering the legal applications of his abilities that would have been far more lucrative than robbing banks (see his entry under CutLexLuthorACheck).

* In ''Film/JurassicWorld'', had Claire or anyone at the Indominus Rex enclosure bothered to check its tracking device ''before'' sending a trio into the pen to investigate, it wouldn't have escaped and none of the bloodshed would have ensued.

*** To be fair, Charles was just inside the head of a man as he died slowly and painfully, and now his best friend is wearing a telepathy-blocking helmet. It's not unrealistic for someone to say something rock-stupid after experiencing death and then being confronted with what seems to them to be the ''walking corpse'' of a loved one.

* ''Film/TheHungerGames'': The Career tributes [[FailedASpotCheck fail to spot a deadly threat]] that Rue notices from further distance and all go to sleep in the same turn without a sentry, in a kill or be killed scenario. This is quickly exploited against them.
