* ''WebComic/HowIBecameYours'' would never have led to any reunion of Katara and Zuko, had Mai not ''kept the letter, telling Zuko of Katara's pregnancy, for three years''.

Simplify for non-fans. Ponified versions of words like "nobody" may be fine for MLP fan sites, but are inappropriate for general interest sites such as TV Tropes.
** Other notorious MLP Troll Fic ''{{FanFic/Cupcakes}}'' is a milder example. So Pinkie is kidnapping and killing ponies to be baked into various foods. Disgusting, but fair enough. Nopony really notices the missing ponies or contacts the police. Okay, that's a little worse, but that could be hand-waved by the bystander effect. Pinkie is doing all her torturing and killing in the basement of Sugarcube Corner, the local bakery. Er, do the owners Mr. and Mrs. Cake ''ever'' go down into ''their own basement'' just once and notice that maybe the party streamers made out of dried intestines would be a bit strange?

* In the seventh episode of ''[[FanFic/MyLittleUnicorn My Brave Pony: Star Fleet Magic II]]'', a robot attacks a dam. Nopony can figure out it's not a living being despite noticing it's made of metal and shoots EyeBeams until its wiring is exposed.

* This sums up ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5305902/1/The-opposite-effect The Opposite Effect]]'', an ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' fanfiction in which Pearl and Trucy decide to hook up Ema and Klavier, despite Ema clearly hating him. Somehow, the two repeatedly miss Ema throwing away Klavier's gifts to her and screaming abuse at him, while Ema never thinks to directly confront the two about their actions or ask Phoenix to do something about it. When Apollo ''finally'' gets around to asking them what they're doing and telling them that Ema doesn't like Klavier, they somehow get it in their heads that he's jealous and proceed to try to set him up with [[{{squick}} Trucy's history teacher and one of her classmates]]. At this point, ''still'' nobody talks to Phoenix about what's going on (despite him being Pearl's friend and Trucy's legal guardian). Meanwhile, Klavier spends the fic convinced that Ema loves him based solely on Pearl and Trucy's word, despite Ema repeatedly yelling at him, throwing his gifts out the window, and hitting him. [[spoiler:In the end, the only way Apollo and Ema can think to resolve the issue is to trick Klavier into being set up with Trucy's classmate, essentially [[{{hypocrite}} resorting to the same stupid tactic they were upset the girls were doing]].]]

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' FanFic series 'Worldburner' (which is a {{Crossover}} event of epic levels with many, many TV, film, literature and comic series) takes this to such egregious levels that it should be the TropeCodifier. In order to further the plot, ForgotAboutHisPowers is a mandatory requirement (unless you're a ButtMonkey or a RookieRedRanger, in which case [[CurbStompBattle you're allowed to win]] against [[TheSnarkKnight Daria's]] EvilCounterpart Judith (who is blessed with JokerImmunity) because it's supposed to be [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]], but the MoodWhiplash that occurs when this happens and [[BadassArmy the heroes]] all wield [[IdiotBall Idiot Balls like weapons]] jut so they can end up DyingLikeAnimals while the plot awaits TheChosenOne makes it all come across like an AudienceAlienatingPremise.

* ''Fanfic/EigaSentaiScanranger'' has abundant examples, but probably the best is "There's Something About Toni." The villainess's plan is to have a hate-inducing monster attack the school's Valentine's Day dance, and have a student use pent-up energy to blow up the rangers at said dance. Some problems arise 1) She doesn't appear to take any steps to make sure what the student uses his energy to blow up is the rangers 2) She doesn't take any steps to insure that the student will even be at the dance 3) She continues on with her plan to use her monster at the dance, even though she earlier used it in a flashy attack that got the rangers' attention and allowed them to discover how to reverse the effects of its powers. This end up being okay for her because the rangers seemingly forget they have this information 4) The villainess was taken by surprise when she found out another superhero would be performing at the dance, even though this was advertised on the dance's posters 5) When the monster shoots an arrow at the guest superhero, one of the rangers tries to perform a body block to save her. Even though the ranger in question's signature weapon is a shield, and moreover a shield she's supposed to be able to throw with Captain America-like skill. 6) Not really part of the Idiot Plot but still worthy of mention, the rangers waited until after classes to do anything about the monster's rampaging victims during its first appearance. Meaning also that classes were held during rioting on campus.
