* Sharon Novak in the ''Series/LostTapes'' episode ''Monster of Monterey''-- ties herself to the boat when working on deck and going underwater to fix the engine, check. Refuses to investigate an abandoned boat with bloody decks alone, check. Immediatelt tries to call Coast Guard on malfunctioning radio and then has boyfriend call them from shore while she tries to raise her sails and leave the area as soon as possible, check. She only dies because the monster returns before the Coast Guard can arrive and her tether is too long to stop her from being knocked overboard while raising the sails.

* ''Literature/ThisBookIsFullOfSpidersSeriouslyDudeDontTouchIt'': When a ZombieApocalypse affects the [Undisclosed] town, a group of zombie-film aficionado hipsters arms itself and start to shoot anybody they think is infected before assaulting what they think is the "main base" of the phenomenon (which they think it is only because it's a creepy BedlamHouse). Not only do they kill hundreds of innocents unnecessarily (after everything was said and done, it turned out that there were only ''seventy'' infected people in the whole town) but they themselves are completely annihilated by the monsters when they ''do'' end up facing them. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking To not mention that]], [[IKnowMortalKombat having obtained all of their weapons knowledge from said zombie media]], [[RecklessGunHandling their weapons handling was horribly atrocious]].

* Alduin of ''VideoGame/TheElderScrolls'' attempted to ''[[DangerouslyGenreSavvy outright kill you when you are still level 1]]'', however, not only it inadvertently helped you to escape from the execution, the mistake eventually led to his own demise.

It's definitely not a good idea to interrupt an execution.

* When the cast from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' gets stuck in a ZombieApocalypse, Soos sets himself up for this, but does get better.
-->'''Soos:''' Dudes, stay calm. I have been training for this moment my whole life. With all the horror movies I've seen, I literally know all there is to know about to avoid zombies.
-->''(A zombie bites Soos from behind. He turns instantly.)''
-->'''Soos:''' Second thought, gonna flip the script. Can I eat your brains, yea or nay? I'm seeing some yea faces over here....

* In ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', the Hills visit a Renaissance fair, where the "king" has fairgoers throw tomatoes at Peggy. She tells them that potatoes would be more historically accurate, at which point the fairgoers readily switch their ammo. Not a death per se, but Peggy didn't exactly do herself any favors. [[note]]Also adding to Peggy's well-known status as a KnowNothingKnowItAll, there were no potatoes in Renaissance Europe[[/note]]

** After running away from the Land Cruiser prior to the Tyrannosaur attack (itself a pretty GenreSavvy move, even if not a particularly admirable one), Ed Regis finds himself alone in the woods. He hears Lex and briefly considers finding her and rejoining the other people, but decides all the noise Lex is making will attract the Tyrannosaurus, so he walks in the opposite direction - only to get eaten by the juvenile T-rex that had escaped earlier.
