* From ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}, everything [[spoiler: the Orokin Empire]] build ended up backfiring on them. This includes things they created to fix their previous messes. Let's see, in chronological order of project crashing down on them, how much of a staggering display of GenreBlindness they exhibited:
** The Sentient. Meant to colonize another star system, ended up TurnedAgainstTheirMasters.
** They created the [[TheVirus Infestation]] to fight against the Sentient. Unsurprisingly, they lost control.
** The Grineer genetically engineered SlaveRace, which so far has been working pretty well, ended up being conscripted to fight both Sentients and Infested, and were generally treated like dirt. It unsurprisingly ended up in a mutiny since now they were the ones with the guns.
** And the last nail in their coffin, [[spoiler: [[PlayerCharacter the Tenno]], child soldiers in]] PowerArmor, who ended up [[spoiler: turning against the Orokin by the [[MissionControl Lotus]], though they were also treated like dirt]], bringing down [[spoiler: the Orokin Empire for good.]]

* ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' reveals the Protoculture experiment that went so horribly wrong it indirectly lead to the destruction of their entire species. They attempted to create living, biological superweapons with destructive power comparable to entire millions-strong starfleets. This was successful, but the resulting weapons required tremendous amounts of energy to function, more than the Protoculture could easily provide. The Protoculture then tried to solve that problem by siphoning energy from an AlternateUniverse that apparently had no physical matter in it. Again, this was successful, but the energy that was siphoned into their living weapons was actually intelligent EnergyBeings... who promptly took control of the bodies they'd been forced into and rebelled, becoming the Protodeviln and inciting a galactic war. Though the Protodeviln were ultimately defeated, the Protoculture did not survive the conflict.

* On the path to ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'''s GoldenEnding, you investigate the "True Lab", and the experiment with [[OnlyMostlyDead fallen-down]] monsters to attempt to preserve their [=SOULs=] after death by injecting them with Determination extracted from captured human [=SOULs=]. The monsters ended up actually getting back up, and looked to be good as new -- technically a failure, but [[HopeSpot a happy outcome nonetheless]]. [[spoiler:Then they all started melting, and their bodies fused together into the terrifying Amalgamates.]]

** Danzo is a more long-term example, as a fair amount of the tragedies that happened in the story can be ultimately traced back to his underhanded actions, in his obsession to "protect" Konoha, arguably creating more enemies and threats that didn't exist in the first place. Just about everything he did backfired horribly for the village, but of course, it didn't matter to him.

* ''Anime/PokemonJirachiWishmaker'': Butler spends the bulk of the film trying to capture Jirachi and use his power to resurrect a Groudon fossil in order to get revenge on Team Magma for expelling him from the organization. He ultimately succeeds in using Jirachi to do so, but instead of an actual Groudon, he ends up with a MadeOfEvil EldritchAbomination that ''resembles'' Groudon. He's [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone rightfully horrified]] by the result, and helps Ash destroy the monster after it absorbs his LoveInterest, Diane.



* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'': Dr. Robotnik planned for his CoDragons, Scratch and Grounder, to be hyper-competent {{Super Soldier}}s who could easily defeat Sonic. Instead, he got the exact opposite: two LethallyStupid clowns who Sonic regularly outsmarts and runs circles around.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' has "Project Daycare" an experiment mentioned in "Haylias" that had CIA agents put their children to undergo severe training and brainwashing to turn them into powerful sleeper agents that will be activated by a phrase only used by the parent, however should the child remain activated for more than 7 days, the child will not only lose their free will, they'll immediately turn against their handler/parent and kill him.

Unfortunately, Stan, who had subjected Hayley to this, was LockedOutOfTheLoop in regards to this and assumed that the project was discontinued simply because the children lost their free will permanently after seven days; he only finds out the truth ''after'' missing the deadline.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': [[BigBad Damien]] was created as an attempt to cheat a vague prophecy by fulfilling it in controlled circumstances -- presumably, no survivors. Also, "''Every'' properly trained wizard [[NeverLiveItDown has heard]] of Abraham, the ''[[SorcerersApprenticePlot idiot apprentice]]'' who ''[[DidntThinkThisThrough recklessly]] enchanted'' a massive ''diamond'' instead of ''[[CutLexLuthorACheck selling it]]'' to pay someone more ''skilled'' to fix his cursed noble friend."

* The failed formula in ''[[{{Fanfic/Plasmas Folly}} Plasma's Folly]]'', which causes the subject's skeleton to [[{{Body Horror}} transform at a faster race than the rest of his or her body]]. After Kelvin lost his first test subject to this, he was forced to abduct future victims instead of seeking volunteers.
