** 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.

* If you've ever been on a sports team in your school days, you can remember at least one teammate who lacked the good sense to stick to the game plan, was a showboat, and/or did something monumentally stupid that cost your side a victory.

** ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'' lets you summon the Leeroy, complete with battlecry by the original man himself. Pulling an actual Leeroy with him is a bad idea because the whelps he summons on the enemy's board will be enough to kill him once the player's turn is over.

* An example of an enemy doing this is the Muton Berserker in ''Videogame/XComEnemyUnknown''. It uses melee weapons instead of the standard plasma guns used by the aliens, and will charge towards any of your squad who damage it. While its melee attack is devastating if it closes the gap quickly enough, the fact that it doesn't utilise cover, combined with its vulnerability to Overwatch fire and the Assault class's Close Combat Specialist skill, means it often gets killed before it lands a hit.

*** The unofficial Defender motto was "never try to save a suicidal Scrapper". That being said, certain Defender sets (Traps and Time in particular) were somewhat notorious for taking the view that the best defense was a good offense and jumping into enemy groups in order to use their AoE debuffs.

* Off of the battlefield, the 1993 Thanksgiving Day Football Game between the Miami Dolphins and the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys, leading 14-13 with seconds remaining, managed to block a game-winning field goal attempt from the Miami Dolphins. All Dallas had to do seal the win is let the ball roll dead. Miami was barred by rule from touching the ball again unless it was touched first by Dallas... which is exactly what happened when Defensive End Leon Lett charged in - ''past several teammates trying to wave him off'' - and tried to recover the ball. He slipped on the snowy surface and ended up booting the ball forward, where Miami recovered and subsequently re-kicked for the win.

**''"Leon was not one of our main special teams players. Iím not even sure he ever worked with special teams previously, so he hadnít gone through all the rules and regulations like somebody who was on all the special team units. We threw him into the mix because of the snow, thinking that with his size and power, he might be able to block one up the middle. It wasnít Leonís fault. We didnít have him thoroughly prepared for the situation."'' - Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': "Sworn to the Sword" reveals that Pearl would repeatedly leap in front of Rose Quartz to protect her during the First Gem War. This is despite the fact that Rose was a powerful BarrierWarrior with an unbreakable shield, while Pearl is a WeakButSkilled FragileSpeedster in comparison. Basically she was a GlassCannon trying to tank blows for the ''actual Tank''. When Garnet mentions this to Steven, he envisions a little montage of Pearl being repeatedly poofed into Gem form by vastly stronger foes that Rose almost certainly could have handled by herself. Then the image switches Pearl and Rose with Connie and Steven. The scene cuts to Steven's horrified reaction right before the axe hits Connie -- fully aware that Connie being human can't regenerate from a lethal blow -- and he immediately tries to stop Pearl's training before Connie permanently falls into this mindset too.

** In "Jailbreak", Ruby and Steven run around Peridot's hand-ship in an attempt to find Sapphire. Sapphire is singing to help them find her, but whenever she stops, Ruby screams Sapphire's name at the top of her lungs, with zero regard for the fact that Peridot and Jasper are on the ship as well, and won't take kindly to the fact that their prisoners escaped.

** Likewise, the Swedish Navy of the era. Ironically, it gained its greatest victory (the battle of Svensksund 1790) when it was on ''defensive'' and ambushed the Russian fleet in the notoriously diabolical Finnish archipelago.
