This trope is the {{opposite|Tropes}} of SmartBall, and probably not closely related to SanityBall, AdvantageBall, or HappyFunBall. And not even ''remotely'' related to MasqueradeBall or TimeyWimeyBall.

Note that in any relatively [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism Idealistic setting]], the villains will typically ''always'' firmly hold onto the Idiot Ball; instead of [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim just shooting the heroes]], expect to see plenty of EvilGloating because... well, [[TropesAreNotBad the show would be over otherwise, right?]].
