* 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!"

* The "Daedalus Attack" in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''. It involved the titular ship covering its right arm (which was a submersible troop transport ship named the ''Daedalus''; long story) with DeflectorShields, then ramming it through an enemy ship's hull, opening ports once inside and firing [[MacrossMissileMassacre missiles all over the place]]. In other words, the giant mecha spaceship ''punches'' an enemy ship and then makes it explode from the inside. It was basically a desperate, last-ditch tactic thought up when the WaveMotionGun was down, but it was so effective that they end up re-using it several times throughout the show, and it even makes appearances in later series on occasion.

* The Canadian 85th Highlanders of Nova Scotia battalion in the [[WorldWarI Battle of Vimy Ridge]] captured a vital linchpin in the Germans' defence, Hill 145. In the snowy battle, preceding attacks on Hill 145's artillery fire failed to suppress the defenders, who shredded the unfortunate infantry attacking their position, and with few men available, the 85th Highlanders were called up to take the position. Unbeknownst to the 85th, their preliminary artillery barrage was canceled due to the close proximity of their jumping-off trenches to the enemy lines, so the zero hour of their attack was met with silence...and nonetheless a battle cry rang out among them and they charged forward, largely surprising the Germans defending Hill 145 who knew that significant artillery barrages meant an attack was happening and figured no one in their right mind would attack without them. It probably helped that [[AchievementsInIgnorance the unit was up until this point, totally green and used only for work parties]].

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has many examples. And all of these, somehow, work.
** How, if you are Harry Potter[=/=]Thorson going to escape the [[TheDreaded Disir]] once they kidnap you and a couple of friends? Annoy them, [[IShallTauntYou taunt them,]] hit them with a spell you have no idea will work, then run like hell.
*** If you deem the Ravenclaw Quidditch team to be responsible for[=/=]compliant in bullying your friend (Luna Lovegood)? Wait until the next Quidditch match, fly as close to a bludger as possible, then [[DeadlyDodging use it to take out the entire opposing team.]]
*** If you are facing an immortal AxCrazy {{Necromancer}} with GodOfEvil level powers and a HealingFactor that makes Wolverine's look pathetic, how do you defeat him? [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E14Innocence Re-enact an episode]] of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer.''
** If you are Harry Dresden, how do you kill a NighInvulnerable demon that just refuses to die? [[spoiler: Grab a high voltage power line and channel the electricity through you into the demon.]]
*** If you are facing the previously mentioned {{Necromancer}}, how do you hurt/kill him? [[spoiler: Meld fire and force magic with [[TouchedByVorlons Soulfire]] to create a holy lightsabre.]]
** If you're Tony Stark, how do you, having spent several days [[spoiler: drugged up in a HYDRA Dungeon]] defeat a demonic dragon? [[spoiler: Fly into its mouth and blast your way out from the inside.]]
** Doctor Strange's entire XanatosGambit, culminating in Chapter 78, seems to run on pure, brilliant lunacy.

* Similar to Lelouch, as he is in many ways, L-elf of ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'' tends to use these. The best is when he is up against X-eins, a former teammate of his who is a master of these in his own right. The only thing that can stop X-eins' crazy plan is an even crazier plan from L-elf.

* In ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'', the party needs to escape from the [[VideoGame/{{Strider}} expoding Balrog ship]]. A [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny dragon powered lens]] piloted by [[VideoGame/LegendOfTheValkyrie Zuhl]] is nearby but he can't get in closer because of the interference from the [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Psychopower]]. Hiryu's suggestion? Get to the dragon ''using the catapult and toss themselves towards the dragon''. This stunt is repeated in ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone 2: Brave New World'' where Hiryu suggests the same thing again with the newcomers utterly baffled at the idea while the ones who already did it before just gave up arguing about it and just did it with Chun-Li remarking that this one's easier because the other side of the ship can pull in the characters.
