* ComicBook/{{Ares}}, MarvelComics' God of War, once pointed out a list of things like "white flags, taking prisoners, Geneva Convention thing and ''checking out if you have enough bullets before rushing into the battle''" and concludes that those are things his sister Athena cares about. He's the God of War. To be fair, he is the God of War as in "conflict", and Athena is Goddess of War and of '''Wisdom''', i.e. strategy. So it's in character for him; less in character for Athena to care about Geneva Convention and white flags, considering the original (Greek) myths. She probably doesn't; [[AxeCrazy Ares]], being [[SociopathicHero Ares]], probably just assumes that everything in war that he doesn't like must be her thing. This characterization is true to their mythological depictions...which is why Athena routinely handed Ares his ass when they were fighting on opposite sides.

** Makuta Icarax doesn't like the complex plan that Teridax has thought up to conquer the universe and thinks that everything would be easier if the Brotherhood of Makuta simply demolished everything in its path.

He's by no means dumb and capable of coming up with good plans himself, but as fellow Makuta Krika notes, the only way Icarax's own plans would be accepted over Teridax would be if they had even better chances to succeed...and Icarax's average plan is called out as "about as subtle as an axe to the face and usually about half as interesting."

** This trait proved the undoing of Primarch Ferrus Manus during the beginning of the Literature/HorusHeresy. So pissed off by the betrayal of his brothers (Especially Fulgrim), he charged in fast and blind. Leaving a huge number of his legion and other loyal Primarch's behind in his angered haste. The only thing it got him was [[OffWithHisHead a swift decapitation]] by Fulgrim, and the unenviable honor of being the first Primarch slain during the war.

* Despite the above example, [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] Steve Rogers has an occasional habit of this too. It's most noticeable in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', which features him dealing with the discovery that his best friend is a POW by ''invading Austria'' during a break in his USO show. Fitting his status as TheHeart and TheGoodCaptain, though, he only does it to himself, strategizing more carefully and checking with other people whenever he's serving as leader.

When he does plan a [[AttackAttackAttack head-on attack]], he always gets some kind of prior approval from the people involved and does his best to make sure that he's still the one in the greatest danger.

** Kouji Kabuto from ''Anime/MazingerZ'' is a mild case of this. In one hand, he ''never'' listens when someone tells him "Don't go", he is impulsive and hard-headed, falls into utterly DUMB, anybody-could-have-seen-it traps because he is too hasty and eager (a fact Kouji himself lampshades), and he is a [[TheDeterminator determinator]] who doesn't know when to quit. On the other hand, he IS capable of listening and following instructions and plans, he is a GeniusDitz who is good at devising strategies on the fly, he is capable of deceiving the enemy and he understands that sometimes stealth is necessary and even good (although he is not very good at it, but at least he makes the attempt), and the wisdom of making a tactical retreat. And he is capable of acknowledging his mistakes (once he was forced to retreat. He was angry, but after TheProfessor Yumi explained the situation to him, he admitted he was wrong and apologized). In a nutshell, he shows some traits of the trope, but he has not let them get him killed.
