** In another arc, Calvin decides that he refuses to inherit Earth (as it's too polluted) and he's leaving. Hobbes then asks him where he planned to go.
-->'''Calvin''': You know, sometimes you're a real load to have around.

* Belkar in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0286.html This]] appropriately-titled ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' strip. He's spent a lot of time trying to goad the KnightTemplar paladin Miko to kill him, as doing so would make her Fall from paladinhood. He assumed that his teammates would [[DeathIsCheap resurrect him afterwards]]. V then points out that the Raise Dead spell requires 5,000 GP of diamonds to work- diamonds that they don't actually have.

* Zigzagged in ''Film/ANewHope'' with Luke and Han going to rescue Leia from the Death Star detention center. On one hand, their "plan" was rather ill-conceived (going into a place they knew nothing about, not planning a way to get out, cutting off their escape route, and setting off an alarm, escaping only because [[TrickAndFollowPloy Vader wanted to let them go and follow them]]). However, on the other hand, they didn't exactly have time to think of anything better. One could consider Vader's gambit as this, since it doesn't take into account how dangerous it is to let the heroes escape ''[[AchillesHeel with the Death Star's blueprints]]'', but ''Star Wars'' villains tend to suffer from SuicidalOverconfidence and [[GenreBlindness never seem to cotton on to their exploitable weaknesses anyway]].

* In ''Film/WarCraft2016'', Llane orders [[spoiler:Garona to kill him]] so tha she may gain respect among the orcs and thus a chance at forging a peace between the two species. This part works without a hitch, but Llane didn't count on [[spoiler:Lothar coming back to reclaim his body and thus finding Garona's knife in Llane's back]], pretty much ensuring that the ''human'' side won't wish to negotiate.

* ''Film/SpaceCamp'': The NASA robot JINX never stops to consider in his rush to give his friend Max his wish to go into space that sending him up in a barely-ready shuttle that doesn't even have enough oxygen to make it to reentry could be detrimental to his health.

** One of their car vs. X races had James and Hammond in a plane James was piloting racing Jeremy in a car along the ground. Sounds like a good plan, but by the time James had completed all the pre-flight checks Jeremy already had a considerable head start, which was a problem since they were in a small, single-engine plane that was barely faster than Jeremy's high-performance car. And then, to top it all off, they had to land at dusk, since James wasn't checked out on night flying, and finish the race on public transit. Jeremy lampshades it when he hears about that part:
-->'''Jeremy''': He really didn't think this through, did he?

* This is very much the modus operandi of Nate in ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'', his most famous quote being "I didn't think that far ahead". On a small scale he often carries out solutions to problems without thinking about the consequences of the aftermath; one moment in the second game has him quoting the trope verbatim as he uses a train car to bust out of a repair shed, alerting all the enemies in the area. On a larger scale this is his overall theme throughout the series; other characters often point out that he's often going up against incredibly dangerous people for the treasures he seeks, which always lands him in their bad blood and frequently sends him to jail. The third and fourth games even have the backstories themselves construed to warn him of the danger, yet he doesn't think anything of it and plows ahead on the adventure, putting him and his loved ones in constant peril and biting him in the ass later.
