* Emperor Pilaf and his assistants in the ''Franchise/DragonBall'' come close to getting Pilaf's wish for world domination twice but fail both times due to not his own errors. Back when he first appeared in ''Manga/DragonBall''. He managed to summon Shenron but took so long to make his wish to TakeOverTheWorld that Oolong, the transforming pig, managed to fly over to the dragon and [[ChivalrousPervert wish for girls panties]], which he then proceeded to wear on his head for a while. Much, much later, he manages to successfully get a wish from Shenron in the first episode of ''Anime/DragonBallGT''. However, instead of wishing for what he wanted he shouts in frustration at Goku, who showed up just as the dragon was summoned, "I wish you were a kid again!" It was not intended as an actual wish, but because Goku was so much easier to defeat as a child. Shenron, however, took it as an actual wish and granted it, kicking off GT's plot.

* Emperor Pilaf and his assistants from ''Manga/DragonBall''. Only once does Pilaf (almost) get what he wants...he [[spoiler: manages to successfully get a wish from Shen Long in the first episode of Dragonball GT. However, instead of wishing for what he wanted, he shouts in frustration at Goku (who showed up just as the dragon was summoned) "I wish you were a kid again!" - not as an actual intended wish, but because Goku was so much easier to defeat as a child.]]
** Except that he has come close to getting his wish twice (or once, depending on your opinion of [[FanonDiscontinuity DBGT in general]]. The other time was back when he first appeared in Dragonball. He managed to summon Shenron but took so long to make his wish to [[TakeOverTheWorld]] that Oolong, the transforming pig, managed to fly over to the dragon and [[ChivalrousPervert wish for girls panties]], which he then proceeded to wear on his head for a while.

** The Logia Devil Fruits are the rarest and give their users the most powerful abilities; Smoker, Ace, and Crocodile are among known Logia users. However, [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Honey Queen]] from the second movie (whether it was canon or not) was a Logia user who was pretty incompetent, trying to flee when her own siblings were losing, lacking the courage most Lugia users have. She didn't get far either, captured by Nami who simply bottled her up in a jar after she had assumed fluid form.

* Keroro from ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' probably counts. His schemes to conquer Earth always seem to end in disasters of some kind, when he's not being sidetracked saving the world from ''other'' alien invaders or something.



* Japoli, Katejin, and Enge, the [[PunchClockVillain Punch Clock Villains]] of ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer'' who are completely incompetent in their jobs, and are only a threat if they have Overman. They are the main source of comic relief with the Siberian Railroad.

** Carta Issue of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' zig-zags between this and NotSoHarmlessVillain. She is a valorous LargeHam Gjallarhorn officer who overly relies on team formation and frequently [[TalkingIsAFreeAction talk mid-fight]]. The ineffectual part comes from [[BornInTheWrongCentury her belief in honor]] when her opponents have none and has no qualms about killing her off guard. While her knowledge of formation is actually put to use when she [[spoiler: went after Orga's mobile worker to disrupt his command, only to be halted by Biscuit's HeroicSacrifice]] and her combat skill is decent for a person who enters the field for the first time with a ''[[ImprobableWeaponUser ceremonial weapon]]'', her urge for CombatByChampion frequently backfires. [[spoiler: The sympathetic part comes from her tragic death, both delivered by Mikazuki and [[UriahGambit staged]] by none other than her treachous love interest, [=McGillis=]. In the end, Carta is just an honourable soldier who wants to honor her family, not only it doesn't earn any respect, it nets a DisproportionateRetribution from her enemy because of her unintentional killing.]]
