** Jigsaw's own fatal flaw is his [[GreenEyedMonster envy.]] After [[spoiler: [[FreudianExcuse the death of his unborn son]] [[DeadManWalking and his cancer diagnosis,]] John is really just bitter and angry at the world, lashing out at people who 'waste' the lives he could never have. It ultimately consumes him to the point [[spoiler: it kills him leads to the death of his ex-wife, the only person in the world who even still mattered to him.]]

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Impulsiveness. It gets Judy bamboozled by Nick, almost costs her her career, and prompts her to [[spoiler: try and steal an entire train car full of evidence instead of sneaking away with a small, but revelatory sample to show the ZPD.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': The FatalFlaw of the [[TykeBomb Daughters of Aku]] is their LackOfEmpathy. They were taught from an early age that needing help is weakness and deserving of punishment, though this also means that they ''won't'' protect each other when they're on the defensive.

* ''Film/FullMetalJacket'''s Sgt. Hartman's inability to deal with issues without using force, which ultimately gets him killed when his personal ButtMonkey, Private Gomer Pyle, undergoes a psychotic breakdown (thanks in large part to his own treatment of him) and shoots him down after Hartman approaches him in his usual style instead of calling the [=MPs=] when Pyle has a loaded gun in his hands.

** According to Kit Harrington, Jon's greatest flaw as a leader is that he assumes his men will automatically fall-in-line in the name of the greater good. This leads him to overlooking the DevilInPlainSight in both Thorne ''and'' Olly.

** Most of the primarchs had one. Horus' was his obsession with glory, Mortarion's lack of self-confidence which led him to seek guidance from the wrong people, Alpharius' constant desire to prove his brilliance which [[{{Chessmaster}} ironically made him]] easy for both Chaos and the Cabal to manipulate, [[TheResenter Perturabo's resentment]] at never receiving the recognition he felt he deserved, [[TheFundamentalist Lorgar's]] need to follow a higher power which drew him to the Chaos gods... and that's just the traitor primarchs. There's also Guilliman's [[ControlFreak obsessive need for orthodoxy]], Dorn's single-minded determination and straightforward attitude [[AttackAttackAttack which at times translated poorly to warfare]], Leman Russ' UndyingLoyalty which led to him never questioning his orders...

** Robb Stark chooses to MarryForLove despite the strategic consequences.

to:

** Robb Stark chooses to MarryForLove despite the strategic consequences. Furthermore, he's honorable and assumes honor in others. He assumes he can win back Walder Frey's loyalty by making amends. He assumes that Lord Walder will honor Guest Right. He assumes Roose Bolton's unwavering loyalty as his bannerman. All of this culminates in betrayal and murder. Like his father, he also suffers heavily from HonorBeforeReason which causes him to execute Lord Karstark in retaliation for killing two Lannister boys when it would have been far wiser (if somewhat less noble) to simply hold him prisoner until the war was over. Because Karstarcks men leave him after their lords execution Rob is put in the position of needing Walder Frey's help in the first place.
