** Season 9, Episode 2: While infiltrating an enemy base, Agent South Dakota refuses to take a moment to activate her motion trackers, despite Agent North Dakota's insistence she do so, as it'll "Take too long". As such, she doesn't realize that a guard has spotted her from behind and the rest of the mission becomes a shoot-out. As such, South goes down a rank on the Freelancer Leaderboard.

* In ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' episode "Mala Mala Jong", Master Fung sends the Chosen Ones away from the Temple with the Shen Gong Wu when Wuya is about to attack with the titular demon warrior. Raimundo decides to go back and help, and gets captured for his effort, letting Wuya track down the other heroes. This is why Raimindo wasn't promoted along the others.
-->'''Raimundo:''' But I was brave!\\
'''Master Fung:''' You did not obey my orders. Your brash and impulsive actions nearly led us to the brink of destruction.

The Changeling hive has a PowerNullifier that prevents non-Changeling magic from working. While Starlight, Trixie, Thorax and Discord sneak in to try to save them, Discord loses patience and charges in screaming he has to save Fluttershy at the top of his lungs.

** ''Oblivion'''s {{NPC}}s invariably exhibit this trope, whether or not an amusing death has been scripted for them. As soon as the combat music starts playing, they'll yell "STICK TOGETHEEEEER!", and disregard their own advice by charging into the fray.
*** There is also a similar NPC in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' who blindly rushes into a dungeon trap after requesting your help to save his fallen comrades. With a spot of luck he can be saved, although the programmers never intended this to happen and he will just stand around doing nothing.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', this is a major cause of some of the game's notorious {{Escort Mission}}s. That withered old pilgrim who begged you to escort her to a shrine? She won't hesitate for a second to charge that [[ElementalEmbodiment Atronach]] ''[[PlayingWithFire made of fire]]'' with fists swinging. A OneHitKO usually ensues in these situations. You'll be thankful when you can command an escort to "Wait Here" while you go clear the path ahead to prevent any "Leeroy-ing", but this isn't always an option.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' carries on the tradition, made even worse by the fact that towns can be attacked at any time by dragons (and, if ''Dawnguard'' is installed, vampires). When this happens, ''every'' adult NPC in the area, from town guardsmen to unarmed civilians, will charge into battle, often with nothing but a dagger and a cry of "Skyrim belongs to the Nords!" Especially annoying in Riften, where it is easy for irreplaceable shopkeepers to get killed off permanently.

* Larry Niven's sentient-carnivore [[KnownSpace Kzinti]] ''always'' attack before they're ready. The greater the chance of defeat, the greater the honor of victory! This tendency was bred into them by the [[StarfishAliens Jotoki]], and eugenically bred back out when their suicidal warriors died in glorious battle.

* Assassin and marksman ComicBook/{{Deadshot}} in the DCU sometimes acts like this. Somewhat explained by the fact that he has a death wish (or more accurately is apathetic about death). He can follow a plan, but if he sees his shot open, he'll take it [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim without hesitation]]. Several SuicideSquad missions have been cut short by Lawton killing their target while the rest of the team was in the planning stage.
