%%* SteveGerber's AuthorAvatar Richard Rory fits ** Alas for ComicBook/{{Batman}}, his darker turn in the 70's gradually slid him into this bill, position. It's been very clearly detailed that his presence did manage to break the gotham mob and he's not happy about it.send most common criminals into a panic, allowing Gotham to at the very least, clean up its police department. Unfortunately, in their place arose Batman's infamous Rogue's gallery. Psychopaths, serial killers and all manners of gang lords who frequently carve up Gotham however they please. It's gotten to a point where some people are just begging for batman to just kill TheJoker and move on, complaining that his grand dream is utterly unreachable and only death and failure can follow in his wake.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': How the Lannisters see Jaime after he returns; King Joffrey and Cersei both note that they survived a siege without him and the war was won without him playing a major role and he for his part, sat out of it as a captive and returned as a cripple. This is amplified furthermore when Joffrey gets poisoned at his own wedding in full view of everyone, with Jaime unable to do anything but watch. It's worse in the TV show because his book counterpart wasn't even ''present'' at King's Landing at the time. And then his actions directly lead to Tywin's death. Harshly, but accurately summed up by Cersei:

* One of the sample comics in ''[[VideoGame/WarioWare WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase]]'' features the titular "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Failure Man]]", who attempts to stop an asteroid from crashing into Earth. It goes as well as you'd expect.

** Mumen Rider at least has the excuse that he's a {{muggle}} who's punching ''way'' above his weight class -- [[DeterminedDefeatist and he knows it]]. His ChronicHeroSyndrome just won't let him stand aside. He's not even an example of TheWorfEffect because he's just a regular joe riding a bicycle. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Without a license.]]

* [[PlayerCharacter Otus]] in {{Owlboy}}, already considered a failure and constantly chewed out by his mentor Asio even before the game starts for real, goes out of his way to do things right but it always happens to backfire or accomplish nothing : chasing a troublemaker while on watch duty in Vellie actually gives an opening to the Sky Pirates that assault the village, [[spoiler: he is then sent to re-activate an ancient device that happens to be worn out beyond repair and no one will believe it and still punish Otus for failing, he then infiltrates the Dreadnought during the siege of Advent to sabotage it from inside, only for Molstrom to nearly kill him and destroy Advent by himself... It fortunately gets better by the end of the game when he reverses the effect of the ancient cataclysm that shattered the world and defeats Molstrom.]]

* ''Anime/ReCreators'': Despite their intelligence and familiarity with stories, the Creators and the good-aligned Creations constantly come up short in everything they do and when they do succeed at something, it's often at a great sacrifice. [[spoiler:Mamika, Aliceteria and Sirius all fail to kill Altair, Selesia only stops Charon at the cost of her life and the whole Elimination Chamber Festival ends up being hijacked by Altair to increase her power.]]

The only reason the series even has a happy ending is because the Creators bring Altair's Creator, Setsuna, BackFromTheDead, which convinces Altair to give up her plan to destroy the world and instead go with Setsuna into another dimension when they can be together for all eternity.]]
