Instead of just concentrating on his own work where he could use Google Adsense, or directly sell ads for his site and Youtube Partnership for his video content, he wastes all his time trying to take over the iCarly webshow.

** ''Videogame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'' reveals that Jack was convinced that the Vault in Elpis would give him access to the wealth and power and alien technology that all other Vault Hunters seek, and make him impossibly rich. It turns out that what the Vault held was [[spoiler: an Eridian device that held knowledge of the Warrior, which promised him incredible power]]. However, at that moment, [[spoiler: Lilith attacked him and smashed the device, horribly scarring his face, because up until that point he'd been becoming more and more violent, unhinged, and megalomaniacal]]. As a result of what happened, Jack was driven completely over the edge into the lunatic psychopathic dictator and CorruptCorporateExecutive Handsome Jack, obsessed with unlocking the Vault on Pandora so he could inflict his revenge.
** Averted with Torgue, who was a brilliant gun designer (despite never having a formal education and still drawing with crayons) that sold his designs and founded one of the biggest suppliers of explosive weapons to the galaxy. However, because he had no idea how to actually manage all of it, he unknowingly sold all of it for a few bucks and a high five. Torgue himself also expressed interest in hiring Tiny Tina while he still had the company, whom he not only jives with but also sees the potential in the little bombmaker.

** "Pikachu's Goodbye" is an extreme example: Team Rocket attempts to poach a group of wild Pikachu (along with Ash's, naturally). They completely fail to realize that they could just, you know, ''battle and capture the Pikachu like any other wild Pokemon''. Only one of them has an owner.
