* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': Let's say you're a KidDetective who's trying to solve a series of serial kidnappings. You know a group of people who have some very strange knowledge concerning it, but you're unwilling to believe they could really know as much as they do. What do you do? If you answer "Let myself be kidnapped, even though the first two victims ''died horrible deaths'' and I have no way to protect myself from a similar fate", congratulations, you're [[spoiler:Naoto Shirogane]], and it's a miracle you haven't shot yourself with your own pistol before now. Lampshaded when the main characters point out how bad an idea that really was.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': Let's say you're 4}}''. The police have caught a KidDetective who's trying to solve a series of suspect for the serial kidnappings. You know a group of people who have some very strange knowledge concerning it, killings, but you're unwilling to believe they could really know as much as they do. What do you do? If you answer "Let myself be kidnapped, even though the first two victims ''died horrible deaths'' and I have no way to protect myself from a similar fate", congratulations, you're [[spoiler:Naoto Shirogane]], and it's a miracle you haven't shot yourself with your own pistol before now. Lampshaded when the main characters point out how bad an idea Naoto, knowing that really was.the only victim that the suspect actually killed didn't die the same way the others did, suspects that he's [[JackTheRipoff a copycat killer]] and the real one's on the loose. Unfortunately, no one believes Naoto, so she's forced to take matters into her own hands, and appears on TV to become a target for kidnapping and lure out the killer. Unfortunately, this results in her being kidnapped and thrown into the TV, nearly causing her own death.

* The ''VideoGame/XBeyondTheFrontier'' game as well as the ''X3'' trilogy and ''X: Rebirth'' sequels (''X2: The Threat'' is a completely different story altogether) would have never happened in the first place had the developers not written [[AllThereInTheManual the backstory]] that made responsible the existence of an IdiotPlot. [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot Had the Terrans had the common sense to take their time to meticulously and thoroughly fix that one buggy software update meant for the Terraformers]], there would be no rampant genocidal self-replicating robots out there to menace the galaxy, if not, the universe, and there also would not have been made possible the birth of an offshoot faction of the Terrans who would end up becoming a LostColony and then get locked into a GuiltFreeExterminationWar with their parent faction over seven centuries later. It's not like there was some sort of deadline to test it out on the Terraformers or something (although we may never know if there was a something like that). However, since the virtue of patience isn't found on the Terrans, [[AIIsACrapshoot we all knew what happened next]]. It seems the developers decided to make an IdiotPlot [[EnforcedTrope the driving force]] of the X-Universe games as we know today.
