* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Yang's short temper and berserker tendencies repeatedly put her in danger. She was easily frustrated when she couldn't land a hit on Neo and could not attack precisely because of it, leading to her getting knocked unconscious and almost killed. Adam Taurus deliberately exploited it by injuring Blake, sending her into a rage which ended in her [[spoiler:losing an arm.]]

* Most incarnations of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' are presented as overly cocky and prone to acts of recklessness, a lot of which are exploited by foes or end up with him making a detrimental mistake. In the games alone, Eggman took advantage of an opening left by Sonic's arrogance in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'', while in ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld'' his over eagerness to swat away Eggman's new toy left another antagonist, the Deadly Six, free to bring havoc, an act which almost led to Earth being drained of it's life and Tails being transformed into a robot).

* In ''TabletopGames/WerewolfTheApocalypse'', several Time of Judgment scenarios show how fatal flaws undermined the various shape-changers. ** The Nuwisha alienated many Garou with their trickster ways. When the Wyrm targeted the Nuwisha for genocide, their reputation created difficulties for them when they sought refuge among the Garou. ** The Black Furies naively revered the Wyld for much of their history. This spelled doom for the tribe when a quarter of its members contracted the Wyld-tainted Metamorphic Plague. ** The Get of Fenris always placed too much emphasis on relentless combat and too little on subtlety. This gung-ho attitude drove the tribe to charge head-first into subterranean tunnels to fight the Black Spiral Dancers. Even when it was obvious that the Black Spirals were luring them deeper into the tunnels with {{defensive feint trap}}s, the Get pursued their prey anyway, until the tribe fell to the Wyrm. ** The Uktena's close study of the Wyrm always worried the other tribes, and their strategy of binding banes under caerns was dangerous. In one Time of Judgment scenario, these bound banes corrupted the tribe's Bane Tenders, who in turn corrupted the rest of the Uktena. ** The Red Talon's uninhibited hatred of humans led them to eat human flesh. The Red Talons contracted a prion disease from eating human flesh, which they in turn passed on to other wolves, annihilating almost all of their wolf kinfolk.

* ''HappyTreeFriends'': Almost all the characters have fatal flaws. Lumpy is inept at everything he does, Nutty is constantly hyperactive and addicted to sugar. Flaky has fears and phobias about just about anything and everything. These flaws do indeed prove to be fatal by the end of the episode. Sgt. Flippy's untreated post-traumatic stress disorder, always proves to be fatal for ''everyone else around him'' by the end of the episode.

* In the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels, Anakin Skywalker's fatal flaw is his arrogant insistence that he can do anything and his inability to let go of that which is important to him, ironically causing him to turn to TheDarkSide in his narrow-minded effort to [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl save Padmé]] at all costs.

* In the second ''Film/HellBoy'' movie, Johann tells the eponymous character his fatal flaw is his temper. He is soon proven correct when HB loses his cool and slugs him.

Already on the page.
* ''Series/TheWire'', most of the characters are flawed in their own way, but the most obvious example, would be Jimmy Mcnulty. Ironically, his whoring and drinking don't affect his work but rather his personal life to the point where he becomes a burden to those around him. ** He can't be a good detective and a good person at the same time. Eventually, that leads to him doing wrong things in order to make the right case, which doesn't end well.
