** Jar-Jar's tendency for this continues in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''. Clones assigned to him are convinced he's some kind of military genius, since he unfailingly [[TheFool stumbles into something]] to defeat the current villain's plan and often takes out most of their forces himself in the process.

* Cadet-then-Officer-then-Sergeant Douglas Fackler in the ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' movies might be the very embodiment of this trope, constantly causing bodily injury to anyone around him while him being completely oblivious to it. He is such an immense jinx that throwing an apple core outside his patrol car's window in the first movie causes a chain reaction that results in '''a city-wide riot'''.

It's the middle step between TheJinx and MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds. IJustShotMarvinInTheFace is a SubTrope. SpannerInTheWorks, DoomMagnet, and WalkingDisasterArea are {{Sister Trope}}s. For laughs, may turn out to be GracefulInTheirElement.

Compare TheJinx who doesn't directly cause mayhem, somehow he manages to induce bad luck in those around him.

It's See MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds for the middle step between extreme version of this trope. Compare TheJinx and MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds.who doesn't directly cause mayhem, but somehow manages to induce bad luck in those around him. Also compare WalkingTechbane when a character is unintentionally destructive to technology. IJustShotMarvinInTheFace is a SubTrope. SpannerInTheWorks, DoomMagnet, and WalkingDisasterArea are {{Sister Trope}}s. For laughs, may turn out to be GracefulInTheirElement.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/TrueLies'', during a scene where Helen accidentally kills a group of terrorists while trying to fire an uzi, to save her husband, Harry. The recoil causes her to lose control and fumble the weapon, sending it tumbling down the stairs in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBIrQV9PxHg slow-motion montage sequence where it continues to fire]], taking out several {{mooks}}.
* In ''StarWars: ThePhantomMenace'', Jar Jar Binks destroys quite a few combat droids accidently during the final battle for Naboo. In one scene he accidently unlatches the door to a stash of grenadelike devices, sending them into the enemy ranks; in another, his foot get caught in one droid, and trying to escape causes the droid's blaster to fire, taking out several droids, including a [[BossInMooksClothing Droideka]]. In the same battle, Anakin destroys the control ship by accidentally crashing into the bay and then accidentally firing at the reactor (which is somehow accessible from the docking bay).
* ''[[Film/TheNakedGun Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult]]'' shows that Drebin has accidentally killed his fiancee. He remains unaware of that.
** To elaborate, he lived on top of a steep cliff, and on their wedding day he slammed the door open just as she was about to enter, throwing her off the edge to be eaten by sharks.
** In the same movie he is also celebrated for killing a record number of drug dealers. He laughingly confesses that he backed over the last few with his car by accident.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': In a flashback, the last time Butters tap danced in "The Tap Tragedy", he accidentally killed eight people.

* Fran of ''FrankenFran'' is one of the few non-comedic examples. In fact, she might be the best example of this trope deconstructed. Since this is itself a deconstruction, that's impressive.
