* During the finale of ''[[Franchise/DotHack .hack//ROOTS]]'' and revisited in the first volume of ''VideoGame/DotHackGU'', if not for encountering [=TriEdge=]/Azure Kite in the [[RecurringLocation Hulle Granz Cathedral]] and being [[BeatTheCurseOutOfHim data drained]], thus being reverted to a low-level PlayerCharacter and losing his [[OneWingedAngel broken]] [[PrestigeClass class upgrade]], Haseo might have never been able to properly control Skeith or calm his head enough to stand any chance against the real threats he would have to face. [[note]]WordOfGod is that [=TriEdge=]/Azure Kite was actually aiming for Ovan behind Haseo, but it still worked out.[[/note]]

* In ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' Damar has become an ineffective alcoholic. Weyoun's constant hectoring, debasement and reminding him of how powerless he is enrages him into a ''HeelFaceTurn'' where he swears off alcohol, frees two federation officers and leads the resistance that eventually throws off the dominion. Nice job Weyoun!
** Dukat had a pretty epic one earlier. When the Defiant breaks the Dominion line to approach the wormhole, Dukat decides not to open fire on the ship so he can watch Sisko get destroyed. This allows Sisko to get into the wormhole and convince the Prophets to spirit away the oncoming Jem'Hadar fleet and close the wormhole for the remainder of the war, leaving the Dominion without reinforcements and having to find alternatives for their supply of ketrecel-white, which is the only thing that allows the Alpha Quadrant powers to sufficiently defend themselves.
** During the final battle, the changeling in charge of all remaining Dominion forces in the Alpha Quadrant and Cardassia in particular snaps after learning that part of the Cardassian resistance survived and orders the entire race wiped out. Since the Cardassian military is fully integrated into her forces and the Allies are currently attacking, this leads directly to Dominion defeat when they naturally switch sides out. The force that storms her command center is composed largely of troops that had been ''guarding'' it minutes before.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''

In ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' "Sacrifice of Angels", all the Dominion really needs to do is [[HoldTheLine hold their position and block the Federation fleet trying to recapture Deep Space 9 for the few hours it will take the Dominion/Cardassian station crew to destroy the minefield]over the wormhole]]. This should be easy, since the Federation is outnumbered two-to-one. Dukat, however, is obsessed with defeating his rival Benjamin Sisko specifically, not the Federation and its allies more generally, and opens a gap in the Dominion lines that he hopes to then close on Sisko when he goes for it. Sisko instead punches straight through the trap and reaches [=DS9=]. Though Sisko does get help breaking through from a Klingon fleet that arrives late in the fight, had Dukat kept his ego in check, the Dominion probably would've won the war with that single battle.

* In ''Literature/KrisLongknife: Audacious'', Vicky Peterwald's amateurish attempts to have Kris assassinated not only [[AssassinOutclassin fail miserably]], but inadvertently lead to her uncovering and bloodily defeating the Peterwald bloc's attempt to overthrow New Eden's government (the group of would-be assassins that kidnapped Kris's great-grandmother Ruth Tordon as bait store her in one of the same buildings where they're stockpiling heavy weapons for TheCoup).

** She does successfully send you on a wild goose chase after the third piece and takes the opportunity to not only steal all three pieces, but kidnap Leah, Cain, and the stranger in an attempt to force Cain to remake the sword... [[spoiler:But torturing Cain is enough to provoke Leah into unleashing her powers, wiping out every mook in the room. Maghda gives it up as a bad job and disappears with the stranger, and Cain's dying act is to remake the sword in time to hand it over to YOU.]]

* ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'': Maghda. Dear Lord, Maghda. Taking it from the top:
** The first time she appears, she tells the [[TheHero Nephalem]] (ie, you) that the first part of the [[DismantledMacGuffin stranger's sword]] belongs to her, summons her ineffectual minions to deal with you, and then, once you're finished mowing them down like the weaksauce mooks they are, helpfully tells you that you can't reach the next piece because it's in a place guarded by the Ancients - literally all the clue needed to figure out exactly where it is.

** Add this to the fact that she absolutely cannot believe that her boss - [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Belial, the LORD OF LIES]] - could possibly intend to sacrifice her to distract you while he carries out his plots elsewhere, and she's not even borderline TooDumbToLive.

* When ''ComicBook/AvengersForever'' went about undoing the damage wrought by ''ComicBook/TheCrossing'', it was retconned that Immortus was manipulating Iron Man since ''ComicBook/OperationGalacticStorm'', not Kang since the Avengers first battle with him. What put this in this trope? During the events of ''Galactic Storm'', Immortus has tried to install Tony with a sense of xenophobia to try to drive the Avengers to go back home and keep them from interfering in intergalactic affairs. Instead, this caused Tony to go into a murderous rage after the Supreme Intelligence allowed a bomb to go off that killed most of the Kree Empire to try to jumpstart the Kree's evolution and Tony led a group of Avengers to kill it.

* The ''XXXenophile'' short ''Wish fulfillment'' starts with the heroine being defeated by a usurping general who declares that "henceforth you shall be my captive flower". This gives the LiteralGenie who granted her three wishes before the option to grant "my captive flower" 3 wishes as well.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rupert}}'', the way to turn the villain's crystal palace into a CollapsingLair is to strike a certain note on an organ. During the climax, Rupert and the princess are frantically hammering away at the keyboard, since they have no idea which key to hit, but can't find said note. A FightScene ensues where the villain, while trying to stop them, falls against the keyboard, hitting just the right note.
-->'''Rupert:''' ''(sincerely)'' Thank you, Prince Lazuli -- we were looking for that key.
