** Homer - who designed said "security system" - is a great example, too. People have died because of said stupidity and a notable example (Frank Grimes) died because the fury he got out of ''seeing'' said stupidity drove him to madness.

This is the guy who, on getting out of bed in the morning, somehow manages to trigger a set of DisasterDominoes that ends up blowing up his next door neighbor's house. After that, he'll swerve to avoid a squirrel on the commute to work, accidentally running a passing BusFullOfInnocents off a cliff. When he gets there, he'll distractedly fire a nail gun straight into the forehead of the resident ButtMonkey, then, after lunch, flip his BananaPeel onto the floor right in the path of an elderly hemophiliac.

* There was an episode of ''Series/{{CSI}}'' with this guy. He accidentally killed his wife and somehow decided that the best thing to do was bury her in fresh cement at a construction site... where he got stuck. It got worse when they delved into his backstory. Some characters found his antics funny but Grissom was just disturbed.

* 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 lethal klutz 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'''.

* In ''StarWars: ThePhantomMenace'', Jar Jar Binks destroys quite a few combat droids accidentally during the final battle for Naboo. In one scene he accidentally 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).

This trope is TheKlutz taken [[UpToEleven to its logical]] - and much darker - [[UpToEleven conclusion]], so it could be called a DeconstructedTrope. But unlike most, it's PlayedForLaughs far more often than for drama. It's very close to LethallyStupid, though in that case, the problems are caused by the character's general idiocy, and not always specifically by his clumsiness.

* [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Fethry Duck]] does sometime cause this kind of disasters. Not being an idiot, he does sometime take advantage of it, such as working in demolitions (that get much quicker and cheaper) or, as in the Italian story "Zio Paperone e l'Ultima Avventura" ("Uncle Scrooge's Last Adventure"), easy and large-scale sabotage.

** 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.
