* ''{{Rift}}'': One of the driving reasons for the Defiant to exist as a faction is a strongly held belief in this very concept as the gods have shown their capability to fix the problems at hand, but have chosen ineffectual or outright lazy methods of achieving this, all of which can be described as slapping a bandaid on a crack in the dam before sending ants to fix the problem for you.

* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Etro]] certainly meant well. She loved humanity, the one and only thing she had ever been able to create, ([[DrivenToSuicide by tearing her own body apart]],) gave them all their souls and ruled as a [[DontFearTheReaper benevolent]] {{Shinigami}} styled goddess over Valhalla, the realm of the dead... However, she was also seemingly unable to realize the limits of her own abilities, appreciate the risks she was taking or see the consequences of her actions. Eventually this leads to her accidentally breaking reality and when she [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong tries to fix it again]] [[DeconstructedTrope the effort ultimately kills her]]. According to WordOfGod, Etro was a quite "foolish" goddess, but it's unclear if that meant she was intellectually impaired or just didn't have much in the way of common sense.

May result in a CrapsackWorld, CrapsaccharineWorld, {{Gotterdammerung}}, be the cause of the problem that the quest is about, or merely be a peculiar background detail. Not the same as TheGodsMustBeLazy; the design errors may be causing the gods extra work.

* ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' points out straight away how inept God is, notingthat the Guide is more controversial than such tomes as "Where God Went Wrong," "Some More Of God's Greatest Mistakes," and "Who Is This God Person Anyway?" (all written by Oolon Colluphid, who went on to write "Well, That About Wraps It Up For God" after He disappears upon finding out that the Babel Fish's existence has canceled Him out).

-->It is such a bizarre coincidence that anything (''the Babel Fish'') could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God. The argument goes something line this: "I refuse to prove I exist." says God, "for proof denies faith and without faith I am nothing." "But," says man, "the Babel Fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it. It proves you exist, so therefore you don't. Q.E.D." "Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

* Terminus, Hylia's twin sister/Terminian counterpart in the ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' fic ''[[FanFic/BoundDestiniesTrilogy Blood and Spirit]]''. While she means well, she's prone to making severe mistakes that have long-term consequences. For example, when Link is first [[TheCorruption corrupted by Majora]] Terminus makes him swear to keep it a secret from Zelda, not wanting to put Zelda through the same pain she went through when Majora corrupted her own hero; Majora subsequently forces Link to attack Zelda and nearly kill her, something that Terminus had [[IdiotBall stupidly failed to consider]]. When Zelda confronts her about it later, Terminus even acknowledges that it ''should'' have occurred to her, but it didn't.
