** ''Father Time'' is probably the most egregious example. If Timmy had simply wished for [[ItMakesSenseInContext his father's trophy to be unmelted by heat vision]], the episode's plot could've been resolved in ''five seconds''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' the fairy king [[PhysicalGod Oberon]] has virtually unlimited power, but his arrogance and temper often combine to make him opt to fight in brutal, elaborate ways either as a means of showing off, toying with enemies, or venting his frustrations. During one climactic confrontation in which he's made angry by being unable to immediately penetrate a force field, he assumes a gigantic form to attack the Manhattan Clan and gets caught in a cage of electricity, only for him to realise that he's not thinking clearly and simply shrink enough to walk through the bars and the becoming intangible so he can get inside the force field from beneath.

** The chronic and widespread amnesia over the Iron Queen's {{Magitek}} is one of the main causes of the IdiotPlot that is The Iron Dominion Saga; the Freedom Fighters are constantly clueless to the fact that their enemy can control machines with her mind, and wind up being shocked each time one of their cyborg or mechanical allies gets turned against them by her. They also keep forgetting that they have a counteragent to her spell ''right in their own backyard''. And in case you're wondering, there's actually a time in the saga where the Iron Queen ''herself'' forgets that she has this power, and has to be ''reminded'' that the Freedom Fighters are holed up in a GreyGoo city that she can manipulate...''after she successfully infiltrated and messed up said city with her powers''.

* ''Film/BruceAlmighty'': After Bruce was caught kissing Susan by his girlfriend Grace, he seemed to forget that he was near-omnipotent, so he could just wipe her memory of said event, or re-write history to make it that it never happened.

** Ulrich is a much worst offender. When he was first introduced, his Triplicata allowed him to summon two illusion of himself to trick the enemy. In season 2, it was upgraded so they could fight and hurt enemies of their own, with Ulrich [[OneManArmy once defeating an entire army of monsters thanks to it]]. Comes season 4, he forgets said upgrade when fighting William (who easily devirtualizes the real one) before forgetting the power altogether for the whole season. He doesn't uses it again until ''Series/CodeLyokoEvolution'', and when he does, it's portrayed as just the illusion trick.

* In ''WhateverHappenedToTheManOfTomorrow'', Superwoman is amongst the heroes trying to break through the forcefield surrounding the Fortress of Solitude. She's capable of teleporting and walking through walls but maybe the forcefield somehow blocks these.

** In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire the fourth book]]'', Harry uses [[SummonToHand Accio]] to summon his broom to get past the dragon in the first task when he could have used the same spell to summon the dragon's egg he was trying to get or summon his broom to fly over the maze in the third task.

** At the end of Season 3, when Nathan is killed by SerialKiller Sylar, his own daughter, Claire, is nearby and she has blood that can bring him back to life. However, for some unknown reason, Claire and Peter - unaware of Nathan’s death - are sent ''away'' by Angela and Noah to “look” for Nathan. Curiously, Noah, Claire's adoptive father, does not mention how Claire's blood can bring people back to life (having been brought back to life with her blood himself) but instead goes along with Angela's crazy plan to ''pretend'' Nathan is alive. They shape-shift Nathan's murderer, Sylar, into Nathan's likeness and pump him full of Nathan's memories to make him believe he is Nathan. Needless to say, the whole thing falls apart and Peter and Claire, who were in the dark about this own insane plan, are [[YouKilledMyFather exceptionally pissed]] when they learn Nathan is dead and it was Sylar who was masqueraded as their brother and father.
