* ''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 [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething 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.

** ''Film/TheBigLebowski'' ("The beauty of my plan is... its simplicity"). The meat of the movie comes from the fact that several groups of people have simple plans, and they all run afoul of each other.

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex''. Noah makes a very detailed plan to have the perfect prom night with a girl that's out of his league. He takes into account her friend's hilariously bad luck and invites Rex, knowing that he could survive any accident she may cause by her clumsiness. What he ''doesn't'' take into account is that Rex is being harassed by a giant monster bunny that wants him dead. This ends with all of them inside a tank trying to get rid of said bunny while on their way to prom.

* This is what ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' generally does when it's not doing ''Series/ThreesCompany''. Lampshaded at one point when Martin scoffs at yet ''another'' Simple Plan that Niles and Frasier have devised (sharing an office as psychiatrists):

* 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 [[spoiler:thanks to Jack kidnapping and then killing Mordecai's beloved bird Bloodwing in incredibly cruel fashion]].

* In ''VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2013'', Lo Wang's task is simple -- buy an old sword called the Nobitsura Kage from a {{Yakuza}}-connected collector named Mizayaki for two million dollars. Things waste no time in going right straight to hell.
