** While they did succeed in beating Whitebeard, [[FamousLastWords with his final breath,]] [[DyingMomentOfAwesome he confirmed that the world famous treasure that belong to Roger and everyone was looking for did in fact exist.]] The fleet admiral Sengoku reacted with a look of both fear and rage when Whitebeard did this as he knew that with the word out more pirates would now venture out to find One Piece and a newer, bigger, and more chaotic age of piracy would begin. With his final breath, Whitebeard basically [[AllForNothing invalidated every aim the world government had by starting this war making all of the Marine's spent resources and sacrifices a complete waste.]]
** The biggest blunder of all was the arrogant view of the World Government that Whitebeard was just another pirate, albeit a very powerful one. [[BigGood Whitebeard was far more than that to many people]] and it was the respect he commanded from others that caused [[PersonOfMassDestruction Red Haired Shanks]] to make sure that [[DueToTheDead Whitebeard and Ace would get the burials they deserved.]] The world Government couldn't even put the heads of both Whitebeard and Ace on display as a warning to other pirates like they wanted to. What if anything did the World government get out of this?

* The corrupt World Government in {{One Piece}} often makes decisions that are this trope. The biggest one to date it the Summit War. They managed to capture the late pirate king Gol D. Roger's son Portagas D. Ace and wanted to not only end Roger's bloodline but also use Ace as bate to draw in Whitebeard, the strongest pirate in the world at the time, so they could defeat Whitebeard and his crew. Unfortunately several outside factors made things go south very fast. While the World Government had no control over the outside factors that turned what should have been a great victory into a PyrrhicVictory it should have been obvious to the World Government that things wouldn't go down so simply to say nothing of the fact that [[DidNotThinkThisThrough they really didn't consider the ramifications in the long term]]. To wit:
** Ace's brother [[TheHero Luffy]] tried to rescue him at the super prison Impel Down and when that didn't work, Luffy made a huge jail break that ended up releasing some of the most dangerous prisoners in the world. The Government's reaction to that was to cover it up so they wouldn't lose the people's faith despite the fact that if such prisoner's start something ([[CardCarryingVillain which they will]]) the escape will be exposed anyway and the government will lose face for both the escape and lying to the people.
** Taking down Whitebeard created a power vacuum and disrupted the delicate balance of power among the strongest and most influential groups in the world. This should have be obvious with some forethought and the worst part is that after the war, so much of the government's forces were stretched thin that the government could barely keep a lid on the ensuing chaos.

* The song [[TitleDrop A Good Idea At the Time]] by OkGo both expresses SympathyForTheDevil and is an [[ShoutOut explicit homage]] to the RollingStones song ''Sympathy for the Devil'', portraying Lucifer as simply a guy after a good time who keeps winding up causing horrific situations throughout history, usually because of [[ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime this trope]] and the consumption of [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy ludicrous amounts of booze]].

** This statement could probably be the unoffical motto for Aperture Science in general. Which is exemplified by the Mantis DNA project, in which the second batch of test subjects gets used for a new test: fighting an army of Mantis Men.

* Every idea Klunk comes up with for [[DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines the Vulture Squadron]] to catch Yankee Doodle Pigeon seemed like a good idea at the time. Once it's implemented, EpicFail is imminent.

It's only after she repeats her advice to Bob that she sees what a bad idea it is.
