Such acts may include wandering into a dark alley at night while alone, separating from the main group due to anger at one or more of the team members, GoingForTheBigScoop, losing a fight against opponents that are well below her skill level, trying to take on the BigBad one on one, deliberately taking on way too many enemies single-handedly, or not listening (or listening, for that matter) to TheHero suggesting she WaitHere. It also includes [[TooDumbToLive not having the sense]] to kick the villain [[GroinAttack in the nuts]] when he tries to [[StandardFemaleGrabArea grab her upper arm]]. It can also play a role in her actions (or lack of them) after being captured, such as [[CardboardPrison being detained in an area with little or no security]] and failing to take advantage of numerous opportunities to escape.

* Akane Tendo in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. The girl was first shown beating up fifty-odd armed attackers on a daily basis and was called Champion of her Martial-Arts School. Yet on more than one occasion, she gets kidnapped by opponents, far, ''far'' [[OvershadowedByAwesome beyond her level]], and acts like a complete ingenue (one kidnapper tied her up with ''pantyhose'' for pete's sake!) Of course, once the immediate threat is absent, she does her damnedest to try to escape.

In both Ranma 1/2 movies, she spends the immediate threat is absent, she majority of screen time in captivity waiting for Ranma to save her, and does her damnedest to try to escape.not attempt an escape or do anything make his job easier, despite never being tied up, locked up, or seriously restrained in any way.

* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Sango picks this up a few times, seemingly to give Miroku a chance to show his heroism and devotion to her. The most notable case is in episode 131, where she gets mad at Miroku, runs off to find him, and gets captured (by a bunch of unskilled mind-controlled human drones) without putting up any resistance, resulting in her getting possessed by a demon egg and an epic battle (in the next episode) with Miroku where he fights to free her from demon control.

* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Sango picks this up a few times, seemingly to give Miroku a chance to show his heroism and devotion to her. First there was the incident in Mt. Hakurai where she gets knocked out by her own weapon after Kagura blows it back at her, despite having plenty of time to catch it (since it's a boomerang, this is what she normally does) or get out of the way (she was partially distracted by seeing Kohaku, but that's no excuse). The most notable case is in episode 131, where she gets mad at Miroku, runs off to find him, and gets captured (by a bunch of unskilled mind-controlled human drones) without putting up any resistance, resulting in her getting possessed by a demon egg and an epic battle (in the next episode) with Miroku where he fights to free her from demon control. Then there was the incident near the end of episode 161, where she gets captured by a lowly demon that was never depicted as a serious threat up to that point.
