* From ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'' you have the mission ''Wildlife Preservation'' the plan is simple enough: Find Mordecai. Get upgrade to Claptrap. However things ''really'' don't go well in the end.

* ''FanFic/TheTotallyAmazingSpiderMan'': The plot kicks off when Spider-Man arrives in Beverly Hills. Jerry, concerned about Spider-Man's aims, orders [[WesternAnimation/TotallySpies the spies]] to detain him for questioning. Unable to keep up with him naturally, the spies stage a mugging - with Sam playing the victim and Alex and Clover playing the thugs- in an attempt to lure him out. Unfortunately, he proved to be far more formidable than they expected. Clover was [[AllWebbedUp stuck in Spidey's web]], Alex is sent running for her life, and Sam had to stall for time so Alex could get out of sight.

* ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead''. "Take car, go to mum's, kill Phil (sorry!) Grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for this all to blow over." Goes about as well as you'd expect in a zombie movie.

* Combined with a ''massive'' dose of {{Genre Savv|y}}iness in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. After a relatively simple plan to steal a MadScientist's Displacement Drive Vehicle goes awry and ends up destroying the vehicle and scientist's entire island complex, Torg learns the experience. So, when he decides to try and take down Hereti-Corp [[http://sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20100303 he figures the best way]] is to pretend that ''they'' have a Displacement Drive Vehicle, too, try and steal it, and cause so much unintentional pandemonium that it brings the whole company down.

* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', Tagon's Toughs are genre savvy enough that if told something should be simple, they immediately start planning for the worst. And not even senior members of the Toughs are allowed to say "[[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong What's the worst]] [[TemptingFate that could happen?]]"

* ''FanFic/TheVow'' (a ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' fanfic): A gang of criminals band together with the intention to kidnap Lady Lianne - the only child of a powerful noble, who's at the time in Gongmen City and courted by Lord Shen -, ransom her back to her father for an insanely large price, split the spoils and leave China. They kidnap Lianne in brought daylight right in front of [[{{Badass}} Shen]] and his wolf guard while they're in the city, but several of them die while one is captured and forced to reveal the hiding place. Before being rescued, [[DefiantCaptive Lianne]] even tells the bandits' leader how flawed the entire plan is.

** In "The Gold Job," Hardison gets the chance to run a con and comes up with a ridiculously complex scheme that's basically a big land deal. However, just as it's about to go through, the marks get tired of all the hoops and quit. Luckily, Nate has a back-up scheme to take them down for supposed insurance fraud. Afterward, Nate tells Hardison that the problem with such large complex plans is that you can never predict exactly how a mark is going to behave. Thus, Nate starts with the "simple and ugly Plan G" that will work when all else fails and moves onto more complex schemes from there. As Nate states, the simplest plans ''always'' remain the best.
