-->'''Richard''': Oh, hello officer. Really? I don't remember any
reckless driving.driving. [A quick montage of all of Richard's terrible driving is shown.] Right... well I think I just won't pay the fines and wait for this to all blow over. Bye. [hangs up]
-->'''Anais''': Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. If you don't pay, they could send you to jail.
-->'''Richard''': That's exactly what he said, but don't worry. I've been imprisoned heaps of times. They put you in then straight away you're just not in there anymore.
-->'''Nicole''': This bill is eight hundred thousand dollars. It says if we don't pay by tomorrow, then they can take our house away. What is going on today?
-->'''Anais''': It seems the results of all our reckless actions are finally catching up with us.
--> While in jail, the Wattersons start to devise a plan:
-->'''Anais''': I think Gumball was on to something. Up until now, every bad situation has gotten worse and worse until it somehow just fixed itself. There's only one solution left.
-->'''Richard''': What is it?
-->'''Anais''': [hands out papers containing charges against them] Everyone take a problem, part ways, and produce a problem more problematic than a problem of that proportion should probably be.
-->'''Gumball, Darwin, Nicole and Richard''': Huh?
-->'''Anais''': Just do what you do best. [evilly] Make things worse.
*** Later, when the episode is about to conclude and the Wattersons are being confronted by an angry mob:
-->'''Richard''': [poking people with a broom] Somebody think of something, I can't hold 'em off forever!
-->'''Nicole''': No! This is it! It's all over! The end of the Wattersons!
-->'''Gumball''': The only thing that can save us is reality being completely reset by some kind of magic device!

-->'''Richard''': Hey Hector's mom, what brings you here?
-->'''Mrs. Jötunheim''': Do you remember the time when your kids wound up my boy and he went on a rampage?
-->'''Richard''': Oh yeah, I remember... [flashback transition, clips from "The Colossus" are shown, Hector is seen destroying the town. The flashback is interrupted by Mrs. Jötunheim.]
-->'''Mrs. Jötunheim''': Enough flashbacking! If you remember well, seventy-five percent of Elmore was destroyed and somebody has to pay for it!
-->'''Richard''': You mean it didn't all end well like it always does?
-->'''Mrs. Jötunheim''': [takes out a sheet of paper and hands it to Richard] Here's your half of the bill for the reconstruction work.
-->[Richard gasps as the sheet of paper unfolds, revealing a long list]
-->'''Mrs. Jötunheim''': Why are you looking so surprised? Did you really think we lived in some sort of fairy tale? 'Cuz wake up buddy, we don't.
-->[Mrs. Jötunheim gets on her broom, and flies away, then disappears. Someone clears their throat. Richard sees that Principal Brown has appeared.]
-->'''Richard''': [whispering] Weird, that lady gnome seems to think that things we've done in the past have consequences in the now.

* Michael Patterson of ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'''s adult career is defined by this, thanks to his development into a WishFulfillment JerkSue. Guy married his childhood crush after witnessing her car accident and [[{{Paparazzi}} snapping photos instead of helping]], shunts all the work of raising their kids onto her and gets lauded as a 'wonderful father', slanders his CeilingBanger neighbors... then came the apartment fire, where he ditched his wife and terrified children to run back into the blaze to grab his laptop. Not only is he never called on this, but one of the fireman who saves him instead decides to gush about how great his newspaper column is!

* This trope is the ''entire reason'' Neebs (from ''WebAnimation/DoraleousAndAssociates'') is such a BaseBreaker. He embodies TooDumbToLive, and most of Doraleous' bad luck stems from his arrogance and disobedience ([[spoiler:which eventually gets him fired]]), but said idiocy earns him [[spoiler:half the throne of Ashbury, a fortune in broom sales, and (arguably) most of the credit for the Geighs' victory over the Giopis]].

* Deedee from ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory''. She normally means to be playful, but always destroys everything Dexter works hard for with nearly no comeuppance at all. Of course, this can be explained by Dexter not wanting to tell his parents she broke some stuff in his ''secret laboratory'', and that said laboratory, despite containing an arsenal of supposedly powerful weapons and tools, remains more or less defenceless against one (pre)pubescent child.

** Scooby-Doo has NO detective skills and in fact is a dumb coward but he ''always'' manages to catch the MonsterOfTheWeek by accident and gets congratulated by everyone at the end of each episode- in some of the spinoffs he's even famous for it!
