* ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'': In the story "Scandal in Baghdad", Iznogoud hires scandalmonger Leguenn Scandales to discredit the Caliph by planting a fake story in the newspapers that he has an illegitimate child whom he abandoned at birth, and soon, the whole country (except, inevitably, for the Caliph himself) has heard the news. The plan backfires when over three hundred people come forward claiming to be the Caliph's illegitimate child, including Wa'at Alahf and a woman old enough to be the Caliph's ''mother'', and the kindly Caliph adopts them all.

*** In the American Archie ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' series, the former Julian Kintobor Robotnik creates a robotic vine known as Krudzu, which runs rampant in the Great Forest until they're destroyed with water. Snively and Antione attempt to find another set, but are destroyed in the process. One last batch evolved into a deadly "Krudzu Hybrid Hydra", only to be destroyed by Dr. Eggman, who felt that only he could defeat Sonic.
*** Also in the Archie comic, Mina Mongoose, suffering from PTSD after the {{Magitek}}-wielding Iron Queen took over New Mobotropolis, used her status as a public icon in an attempt to send a message for the citizens to rise up against fear and take care of themselves. It worked, only she didn't expect Ixis Naugus to use his magic to amplify the existing fear and anger of NICOLE, eventually leading to NICOLE being exiled from the city completely.

*** ** In one of the later arcs, Robotnik, having been sent to a sub-atomic universe called [[ArabianNightsDays Shanazar]], eventually created a "Dimension Blender" to enlarge Shanazar until it occupied the same space as Mobius, [[MergedReality fusing the two planets together]]; in the expected chaos and destruction created from the merger, Robotnik planned to conquer Mobius once again. The plan backfires when Mobius and Shanazar fuse without ill effects; instead, the Zones from Shanazar as simply added onto Mobius.

* In [[http://www.digitalpimponline.com/comic/avw/150/ this]] strip of ''Another Videogame Webcomic'', Player One petitions to get Tim Tebow on the cover of ''[[VideoGame/MaddenNFL Madden 2013]]'' in the hopes of passing the MaddenCurse onto him, because he's sick of all the attention and coverage Tebow is getting. It works and Tebow suffers a season ending injury, but unfortunately Series/SportsCenter likes covering Tebow more than they do actual football, so they suspend all sports coverage in favor of non-stop reports on Tim Tebow's road to recovery.

* Stride chewing gum's first ad campaign was about the company growing increasingly desperate because their gum's flavor lasts so long, all their customers are still chewing on their first piece of gum, forcing them to halt production and find ridiculous ways to force people to spit out their gum and chew more.

* In ''ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX'', one of the gangster capos thinks that it would be a great idea to record a video of him ''digging up Frank's family and urinating on their bones'', then sending it to every news station in the city. The plan was to make Frank incredibly angry, because the gangster believes that angry people always make sloppy mistakes and he can take advantage of that to kill the Punisher. This plan succeeds in making Frank angry all right... but it ends up sending him shooting right past UnstoppableRage and into pure TranquilFury instead. Rather than making mistakes out of fury, Frank uses his newfound focus to effortlessly butcher his way through dozens of local mafia-types ''en masse'' until the police bow to his demands to reinter his family.

* In ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged'', Rosalia subjects Kirito to a BreakingSpeech intended to reduce him to a gibbering wreck before she and her Titan's Hand goons mug him. However, this doesn't change the fact that Kirito [[RPGMechanicsVerse is still thirty levels higher than them]], so they can't even harm him even when he's not bothering to dodge their attacks. All Rosalia succeeds in doing is turning a {{Jerkass}} into a LaughingMad [[AxeCrazy killing machine]], ''then'' slamming ''several'' of his {{Berserk Button}}s, which turns out to be a fatal mistake.

* A cartoon from ComicStrip/{{Quino}} (of ''ComicStrip/{{Mafalda}}'''s fame) has a man teaching his son to be a ruthless businessman caring only for money. Then, when the man is old, is forced to live in the street because the son doesn't want to pay his retirement house. The last panel has the old man begging to a passerby, saying something in the vein is "help me, my son grew up right!"

** In ''ComicBook/TheDarkPhoenixSaga'', Mastermind manipulated ''Comicbook/JeanGrey'''s mind to remove both her morals and [[PowerLimiter the blocks she'd put on her cosmic power]]. The result was... [[AGodAmI a little more than he could handle]]. Dark Phoenix "rewarded" Mastermind by giving him exactly what he wanted: she made his mind "one with the universe", [[GoMadFromTheRevelation shattering his sanity in the process as the human brain lacks the capacity to comprehend what he'd experienced]].
** This is the ''recurring'' problem with the Sentinels, courtesy of AIIsACrapShoot. See, the Sentinels are programmed to eradicate all mutants. Mutants evolved from baseline humans as a result of a specific combination of genetic traits. The Sentinels are equipped with genetic scanners that let them identify this "X-Gene" both in active ''and'' in passive form. Meaning they can not only track mutants, but they can also track humans who ''might'' turn into mutants, and even humans who have a chance of having mutant children. Logically, then, the next step is to start wiping out ''those'' humans too. And if humans attack the Sentinels in defense of those humans, then the Sentinels, by virtue of their self-defense programming, are obliged to terminate those humans as well. Needless to say, the very first of the {{Bad Future}}s the X-Men were involved with was the ''ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast'' storyline, involving a universe where Sentinels wiped out mutants and then all humanity.
** Similarly with the Purifiers, who gave Bastion a new body so that he could help them kill the X-Men. Bastion took one look at their plan, dismissed it and created his own, almost instantly hijacking the Purifier's purpose completely. Unluckily for the Purifiers, they didn't know Bastion had no qualms about using ordinary humans as weapons...
** Similarly, with Madelyne Pryor: When S'ym and N'astrir unlocked her powers and corrupted her, they assumed that they would be able to control her only for Maddie to hijack the entire Inferno plan to go after her husband ''Comicbook/{{Cyclops}}''.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Supergod}}'', the entire world is totally screwed because each nation was a little too good at creating an unstoppable PhysicalGod during their super being arms race.
