** Ordinarily, when a mining ship from the future commanded by an AxCrazy Romulan shows up and starts laying waste to ships and planets, most folks would decide to steer clear of the damn thing. Of course [[Film/StarTrek Captain James T. Kirk]] decides that the best course of action is to take them head on.

Kirk, however, decides that the best course of action is to take them head on.

* In episode 12 of ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', the Oorai girls Tankery team runs into a gigantic Maus tank. It promptly knocks out two of their tanks with little effort, and forces them to retreat. Saori reads up on it, then laments that its like a tank on top of a tank. Which gives Miho a crazy idea based on what her friend just said. [[spoiler: They have one tank go underneath it to prevent it from moving its tracks, then a smaller tank on top to prevent them from turning their turret, then Miho's tank knocks it out by [[AttackItsWeakPoint shooting at one of its exposed grills.]]]]

* In episode 12 ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'':
** A lot
of ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', Miho's plans count, as she's generally taking on teams with both numerical advantages and superior equipment, but the Oorai crowning moment comes when the Ooarai girls Tankery team runs into a gigantic Maus tank. It promptly knocks out two of their tanks with little effort, and forces them to retreat. Saori reads up on it, then laments that its like a tank on top of a tank. Which gives Miho a crazy idea based on what her friend just said.

** ''[[Anime/GirlsUndPanzerDerFilm Der Film]]'' includes many more crazy plans, and not all of them from Miho. Things like catapulting a Hetzer off an L3 Tankette in order to [[spoiler:shoot down the barrel of a Morser-Karl]], having a tank ride a rollercoaster track to act as a lookout, disguising tanks with inflatable duck heads as camouflage, or [[spoiler:blasting a FerrisWheelOfDoom off its supports to break up the enemy formation.]]

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' invoked this frequently pretty much every time Rachel came up with a plan it was this. Marco says it word for word more than once. What to do when one of your friends has been kidnapped, held prisoner in a ridiculously well-guarded underground base, and you have less than two hours to rescue them, all while your leader isn't even around? Impersonate a jet pilot, steal a jet, fly it straight down into the ground ''through a building'', '''''then''''' bail out and jump into battle. Even then, it only worked because they made the BigBad's day when they killed a political rival in the process, and he didn't bother to stop them from leaving the mess. Rachel, folks.

* ''Manga/HighSchoolDXD''
** If there's anybody who is able to get more powerful from perversity, it's Issei Hyodou. Seriously, almost every single power up he has involves Rias' breasts or the breasts of his harem. Some of these include: ClothingDamage to a female enemy and bombarding them with powerful attacks, ''hear'' breasts talk and it will only tell the truth, [[spoiler:and use Rias' breasts ''as a battery source''.]]
** How about using that very ClothingDamage ability [[spoiler:to rescue Asia from becoming a Nuke?]]

In ''Manga/HighSchoolDXD'' Issei Hyodou. Seriously, almost every single is the one most prone to coming up with these kinds of schemes. Devils gain power up he has involves Rias' breasts or the breasts of his harem. Some of these include: from their desires, and sacred gears evolve in accordance with their wielder's desires, and what Issei desires is usually [[PowerPerversionPotential something perverse.]] This leads him to develop powers like a ClothingDamage to a female enemy and bombarding them with powerful attacks, ''hear'' breasts talk and it will only tell the truth, [[spoiler:and use Rias' breasts ''as a battery source''.]]
** How about
spell that can also destroy magical bindings, or using his girlfriend's boobs as a power battery, but it also shows through by less perverse means. His plan to defeat Raiser Phenex, for example, involved sacrificing his arm to gain a power up from his sacred gear and then attacking Raiser with a cross and holy water, which would normally be extremely painful for a devil to touch except that very ClothingDamage ability [[spoiler:to rescue Asia from becoming a Nuke?]]he used his sacrificed arm like an oven mitt.

* The ''WesterAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "Sandy, SpongeBob, and the Worm" has Patrick suggest that the citizens should "take Bikini Bottom and push it somewhere else" to get it away from the giant worm attacking the city. Squidward subverts this trope in response:
--> '''Squidward:''' "That idea just might be crazy enough...TO GET US ALL KILLED!"
