* In many 50's monster movies, the protagonists will declare a monster immune to conventional weapons after a few torso-shots from low-caliber revolvers don't faze it, oblivious to the fact that bigger guns and more critical points on the body exist. At the very least, ''Videogame/DeadSpace'' and ''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead showed that even something that can't technically be killed can still be dismembered or burned until it no longer poses a threat.

* ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'', ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'', and ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld''. No one ever thinks to just follow Bowser whenever he invokes VillainExitStageLeft. Likewise, despite the existence of quite a few RealityWarping {{MacGuffin}}s, anyone who has one tends to suffer from ComplexityAddiction and/or ForgotAboutHisPowers.

** In "Trajectory" is revealed that Zoom's powers are killing him. No one ever thinks of simply waiting for that to happen. Granted, there's a lot of damage he could do on Earth-2 in that time, so just leaving him be could be catastrophic, but no one seems to even consider the option.
** In "Versus Zoom", Zoom kidnaps Wally and says he'll only release him if Barry gives him his powers. Zoom actually keeps his promise and leaves Wally free and stays still while they inject him with Barry's powers. No one for a moment even entertained the idea of putting absolutely anything else in that syringe. Poison, a narcotic, acid, etc. Any of those would have actually given them an advantage against him, at the very least for a few minutes. More than enough for them to get the upper hand and capture him.

* Many, ''many'' video-game [[{{Main/Creepypasta}} creepypastas]], such as ''WebOriginal/SonicExe'', have the protagonist continue playing TheMostDangerousVideoGame even after they realize it's haunted. However, nothing is preventing them from stopping, meaning that the player could simply turn the game off and get rid of it.

* One episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' centers around a teenage girl who comes to New York to get an abortion, because the state she's from requires parental consent and her father had previously thrown out her older sister for an unintended pregnancy. She went to the first clinic in the phone book, but the doctor there turns out to be against abortion, and manages to delay her until she's past the legal limit for the procedure; as a result, the girl and her boyfriend end up battering the unborn child to death. But the entire thing would have been avoided if the teens had just ''gone to a different clinic''.

This can be seen as a sub trope of IdiotPlot (a plot in which many characters grab the IdiotBall to keep the story going) where all the characters perpetually grab the ''same'' Idiot Ball.

This can be seen as a sub trope SubTrope of IdiotPlot (a IdiotBall as it's essentially an Idiot Ball so grand in scale that it doesn't just move the plot in which many along--''it keeps it alive.'' And when numerous characters grab in the IdiotBall cast fail to keep the story going) where all the characters perpetually grab the ''same'' Idiot Ball.
pick up on this [[ElephantInTheRoom one glaring element]], you've got yourself an IdiotPlot.
