Can be the result of DidntThinkThisThrough, but not necessarily. Compare NiceJobFixingItVillain and BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame. The StreisandEffect is a subtrope of this, when the petard is censorship.

A "petard" is an explosive device (basically a bucket full of gunpowder) intended to demolish gates and fortified walls; being too close to the detonating explosive could well toss the engineers who planted it into the air. Thus, this term literally means "Blown into the air by one's own bomb" and [[ZerothLawOfTropeExamples was first coined]] by Creator/WilliamShakespeare in ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''.
