Added DiffLines:

* Virtually every episode of ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFourWorldsGreatestHeroes'' involves a catastrophe either A. started when Reed Richards' latest invention malfunctions, B. [[IdiotBall triggered by Johnny Storm's stupidity]], or C. [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs set off when Johnny Storm's stupidity causes Reed Richards' latest invention to malfunction]]. Yes, it shows how the Fantastic Four aren't superheroes, but a superpowered family who gets into trouble, but it still applies.

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', Homura's conflicts with Mami and Sayaka could theoretically be avoided if Homura stopped being so antisocial and cryptic, and just flat-out ''told'' everyone [[spoiler: that magical girls turn into the witches they fight, and that Kyubey is deliberately misleading girls into making contracts in order to take advantage of the energy that is released during the girls' aforementioned witch transformations]]. However, it's eventually subverted. [[spoiler: In several previous timelines, Homura ''did'' explain everything to the rest of the cast, and they either didn't believe her until it was too late or they snapped and tried to either commit suicide or murder the other magical girls to stop them from eventually becoming witches. After seeing this happen so many times, Homura eventually just gave up on trying to explain things.]]

** Meanwhile, considering that Twilight was able to block Discord's magic near the end of Season 2's premiere, there's no reason for the Mane Six to ''not'' use AntiMagic on the other villains as well, since the villains rely exclusively on their magic.

** WebSite/SFDebris also (falsely) noted that judicious use of a TimeBomb in the pilot would have turned the series into little more than a TV movie. [[spoiler:The SadisticChoice at the end of "Caretaker" was, should ''Voyager'' destroy the Caretaker Array and leave themselves with hoofing it home, or use the Array to get home and let the Kazon enslave the Ocampas? Janeway chose to blow the Array. Chuck Sonnenburg's solution was to set a time bomb aboard the Array, set to go off just after it chucked ''Voyager'' back to the Alpha Quadrant. Unfortunately, there was an easily-missed line where Tuvok notes that without the Caretaker, it would take several hours to activate the Array and that's assuming that it doesn't get even ''more'' damaged in a multi-hour firefight. It's understandable, since even the ''writers'' seemed to forget that bit of information.]]

It's understandable, since even the ''writers'' seemed to forget that bit of information.]]

* ''FanFic/SecondWind'': One that is not PlayedForLaughs: [[spoiler:the Five Elder Stars ordering Sengoku to have Marineford's entire top brass attack the Straw Hats to prevent them from joining up with their new allies, the Whitebeard Pirates, in the New World. Sengoku is ''horrified'', because regardless of whether or not they succeed in killing the protagonists, they will still be weakened, and Whitebeard will still attack them. Of course, this entire situation can be solved by the World Government not going kill-happy for once and letting the Straw Hats go free, but they're thoroughly convinced that option would be worse as it would tip the BalanceOfPower in Whitebeard's favor, seemingly ignoring the fact that their half-baked idea to attack the Straw Hats ''will do that anyway'']].

* Every single villain in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' except the Pony of Shadows could have easily ended the series:
** Nightmare Moon would have gotten away with the Elements scot-free if she just stopped trying to trip up the Mane Six.
** Discord can literally win by snapping his fingers, but he decides to toy with the Mane Six and even flat-out ''tell Twilight where he hid the Elements''.
** In both her season finales, Queen Chrysalis has our heroes hopelessly cornered...only to not only refrain from knocking them out, but do nothing to protect herself from the blast that beats her.
** Instead of containing the Crystal Heart in an inescapable crystal prison, King Sombra traps Twilight in one ''after'' she knocks the Heart over to Spike, who then gets it to safety. Sombra doesn't smash the Heart either.
** After draining Twilight's magic, Lord Tirek has more than enough time to just squash the helpless Mane Six like ants...but lets them go, allowing them to unlock Rainbow Power and one-shot him.
** After stealing the Mane Six's cutie marks, Starlight Glimmer imprisons them together and ''leaves them unattended'', allowing them to conspire against her. Even worse, she stores most of her stolen cutie marks in a big picture window so fragile that a branch can utterly destroy it. Also after the Mane Six get their cutie marks back, beating Starlight into submission, locking her in a magic-draining prison, and ''then'' lecturing her about friendship would have saved both us and them a season finale involving her.
** And speaking of the Pony of Shadows, [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E25ShadowPlayPart1 Shadow]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E26ShadowPlayPart2 Play]] revolves around Twilight and friends carelessly opening a gate to Limbo to free the Pillars, not once thinking about the possibility of accidentally freeing the SealedEvilInACan alongside them.

(and later Starlight Glimmer imprisons them together and ''leaves them unattended'', allowing them to conspire against her.

*** It might have something to do with the DC heroes' code against killing; Brainiac, being a sentient being, is still protected by that code and therefore they can't just destroy him.
*** It might also be a ContinuityNod, as, in the comics, the remains of Brainiac are what are used to create Brainiac 5, a hero in the 31st century.

* In Film/HappyDeathDay, the protagonist, Tree, is stuck in a GroundhogDayLoop in which they are killed at the end of every day. The killer in question though, never gives Tree the impression of being anything more than a normal human [[Spoiler:and is in fact two people; a dangerous but untrained and under-equipped serial killer and another college girl, and yet it isn't until Tree knows the killer's two identities that she tries simply killing them, even though she could easily use the loop to get good weapons and know exactly when and where they'll strike if she follows roughly the same path each time.]]
