* Raiko from the sequel series ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' arguably counts as this. He refuses to help to Korra free the Southern Water Tribe from the Northern Water Tribe because it's something that does not directly involve the Republic, and when told later on of Unalaq's evil plan to free the terrible Vaatu from his prison he still declines because he feels it's better to simply try to prepare for the worst-case-scenario and ready Republic City's forces to try and weather the storm. Naturally, due to his lack of help, Korra fails to prevent Vaatu's escape, and Republic City's defenses are utterly ''useless'' against the hybrid form of Unalaq/Vaatu, who would have '''destroyed''' the City had Korra not arrived in time to stop them. Raiko, of course, wasted no time spinning things to blame Korra for the mess. Subverted in the fourth season, when he recognizes the threat posed by Kuvira and the Earth Empire and mobilizes all United Republic defenses to stop her.

Ironically, he then has to deal with this trope from Fire Lord Izumi, who doesn't want to commit to a first strike given her nation's history, and Tenzin, who's a pacifist and also won't condone a preemptive attack.

* The Earth Federation slowly started to have this hat starting in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' where they remain unsupportive to the Anti-Earth Union Group and Karaba in facing Neo-Zeon since they don’t have much resources but they willingly abandoned many civilians during the Dublin ColonyDrop. It doesn’t help that they made a deal with Neo-Zeon. Then in ''Anime/MobileSuitCharsCounterattack'', they gave Char some gold and an asteroid just to stop him [[TemptingFate from doing more colony drops on Earth]]. But anyone who is familiar of Char such as Bright Noa and Amuro know that he’s still going to drop the asteroid and they’re right. The Federation’s attitude increasingly became worse in the Late Universal Century that they’re completely useless against the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91 Crossbone]] [[Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam Vanguard]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam the Zanscare Empire]].

* Season 2 of ''Anime/PsychoPass'' has the Sibyl System who were ignorant on the danger that Kirito Kamui imposed most especially when he kidnapped an Inspector, created a hostage situation which resulted to many casualties and killed many of their Enforcers so he can steal their Dominators. And yet, Sibyl kept their heads and focused on trying to darken Akane’s Psycho-pass instead. Later on, it’s revealed that Sibyl knew that Kamui is dangerous and were unable to comprehend his entity which explains their inaction against him. But it’s already too late when [[spoiler:Kamui gains the upper hand and judges the system by forcing them to remove their brains with high crime coefficients]].

As for the former TropeNamer, it's DatedHistory: Britain was in no shape to take on the Third Reich for most of the 1930s, and in any case nobody, ''nobody'' wanted another World War no matter how much they hated and feared Fascism; after all, almost ''five percent of the population of the country'' died the last time. Chamberlain also increased military spending and enacted civil defence preparations well before it was obvious that Hitler would not negotiate in good faith; towards the end his strategy was less "peace in our time" and more "desperately ''buying'' time". So... yeah, that's why we have a Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease policy for this trope.

* ''ComicBook/{{Annihilation}}:'' Of the three major intergalactic powers involved, the Skrulls are involved with the war from day one, the Shi'ar aren't involved at all, and the Kree are being lead by House Fiyero, who just weaselled their way into power, and don't care too much about the war, even once it's reached their doorstep. And making matters worse, House Fiyero even sides with the Annihilation Wave toward the end.

** The Brotherhood of Guardians were even worse with H.I.T.S. management. They entrusted the safety and welfare of Angel Island to a naive and inexperienced teenager who was easily duped by a tyrannical warlord.

** Harvey Who, the head of the Kingdom of Acorn's intelligence agency, delivered a powerful TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to Elias Acorn when the latter came to get his aid in trying to reclaim the throne from Naugus. He kept warning them over and over not to trust certain people and that bad things were coming, but Maximilian Acorn, the previous king, refused to listen, rather listening to the Source of All's guidance. When he realized Elias had a lot better head on his shoulders, Harvey agreed to help.

* Music/DanielAmos: In the short story that accompanies the album ''Music/{{Alarma}}'', one scene has the Reverend James Cursory reassure his church congregation. He tells them that everything is okay, that there are no problems at all--and the rampaging giant outside is just their imaginations. All they need to do is sing and feel good, and their imaginary problems will go away! The giant levels the church while they’re singing.
