* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8702607/2/Shinji-s-Angels Shinji's Angels]]'' Armisael goes back in time to fix things (since it infected Rei, it fell in love with Shinji just like she had) and manages to catch four other Angels and reprogram them along with getting them bodies using Rei's clones. Unfortunately, she simply copy and pasted her own emotions over theirs, resulting in Leliel asking "Who is Shinji Ikari and why do I love him?" Armisael's only (vocalized) reaction is a loud "D'oh!"

* A recurring theme in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11669575/1/For-Love-of-Magic For Love of Magic]]'' is Harry Potter taking some action and realizing later he didn't think things through enough. Runes that age him faster also kick start his libido, causing him to fantasize about his foster mother, and never stop aging him which leaves him looking roughly seventeen when he's thirteen. A rune designed to hide his mind in darkness from legilmency leaves him open to being corrupted by said darkness after [[spoiler:he murders Peter Pettigrew]]. The latter is particularly dangerous as it nearly turns Harry into a dementor.
** A narrowly averted example comes when Harry decides to crowdsource an arithmancy problem by posting it online as a mathematics problem. While he does get a solution, someone also warns him that the muggle government is aware of magic and they keep their eye out for such things, which can land him in very hot water.

** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'' and Crystal Prep's Principal Abacus Finch's plan to win the titular games. Blackmailing the very shy and insecure Twilight Sparkle of that world into competing in the games. Then, upon finding out that Twilight has been unintentionally collecting the lingering Equestia magic with a magic amulet, pressuring her to use it to win the games. What could go wrong? Well two things actually. 1) The contest deals in both academic studies and physical challenge. So while Twilight passed the first one, no problem, and give her school an early lead. She's near useless during the second event because she's not an athlete in the slightest. and 2) Oh, how about [[spoiler:Twilight losing all control of the magic, being transformed into a force of evil that's willing to destroy the universe!]]

**Concatenated example, as that, in turn, was just the excuse his brain came up with to turn against the person in question who he approached without any kind of protection... to deliver a medicine made to prevent her from releasing chemicals that made everybody who gets near her want to kill her.

* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'': The Trio devises a plan to impersonate students from House Slytherin so that they can sneak into the Slytherins' dorm and hopefully uncover some information about the titular Chamber. They spend a month concocting an extremely advanced shapeshifting potion and make some thoughtful arrangements, like stealing appropriate robes and preparing drugged cupcakes to put said students out of commission for the duration of their foray. Finally, everything is ready, and they perform the transformation...whereupon they realize that they have no idea where the Slytherin dormitory is.

Of course, said thoughtfull preparations were thought of solely by [[OnlySaneMan Hermione]], so it's possible ''she'' knew where the dorm was, but her transformation went wrong preventing her from joining the boys and distracting her from telling them.

* Turned into a ''RunningGag'' with Mojo Jojo in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', to the point where, when a spree of robberies occurred in Townsville, the girls quickly ruled him out as a suspect because ''it was too well thought out''. Case in point: in the episode "Monkey See, Doggy Two," he re-uses his old Anubis Dog Head plan to turn the world into dogs under his control, but he doesn't turn the girls themselves into dogs because he believed that was the FatalFlaw in the original plan. Instead, the still-human girls just beat the crap out of him, causing the plan to fail even worse than before.

Instead, the still-human girls just beat the crap out of him, causing the plan to fail even worse than before. What makes this plan this trope even more is that Mojo Jojo ''did'' think this through - he solved the original problem by protecting his rear with a metal plate. He just thought hard enough that it circled back around into this trope when he opted to not turn the girls into dogs.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': Syndrome's EvilPlan involved the Omnidroid, a robot programmed to adapt to techniques used to defeat it in order to beat opponents. [[spoiler: The plan was that he would order the Omnidroid to attack a city, and then defeat it in order to set himself up as a superhero. He fought the robot using a remote control. Unfortunately for him. the Omnidroid, following its programming, realized that the remote was a threat and immediately acted to remove it. Without the remote, Syndrome [[CurbStompBattle went down pretty fast]], leaving the ''real'' heroes to stop the [[DragonAscendant Omnidroid]].]]
