* In the the world of Innistrad in ''MagicTheGathering'', the angel Avacyn used to lock demons away in an artifact called the Helvault, until she was tricked by the demon Griselband and the two were sealed together. Losing its guardian angel, lots of bad things happened in Innistrad, until the necromancer Liliana Vess decided to break the Helvault to kill Griselband without knowing that it would also release Avacyn.
* In ''{{Exalted}}'', when the Great Contagion was killing the majority of Creation, The First and Forsaken Lion got TheFairFolk to invade, destroying fully half the territory and killing many of the Contagion's survivors. The problem? The Balorian Crusade was repulsed, and the infusion of Wyld energies may very well have helped Creation fight off the effects of the Contagion, thereby allowing it to survive. [[FanNickname Falafel's]] Neverborn master was quite angry, to the point where it bound him into his armor. Painfully.

** The "Miracle Giant" Gerard Valkyrie was seemingly unkillable & unstoppable even against the likes of shinigami captains Hitsugaya, Zaraki & Byakuya, becoming stronger everytime he revives & even Byakuya commented that Gerard level of power has rival the BigBad Yhwach. However in the midst of their seemingly endless fight, the BigBad Yhwach took away Gerard's powers in the wake of his fight against Ichigo that ended up killing Gerard for good.

* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', [[BitchInSheepsClothing Assistant Mayor Bellwether]] vouches for [[RighteousRabbit Judy]] when she was about to be fired by [[DaChief Chief Bogo]]. She didn't expect that Judy would discovered she was behind the HatePlague affecting Zootopian predators the same way she expected her to find about the missing mammals.

* In Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's Literature/VorkosiganSaga book ''Falling Free'', the heroes at one point want to rescue someone from the villain. Since they're in outer space, they need the help of a spaceship pilot, and the only one they've got is not one of the heroes; he's helping them for pay, and is unwilling to risk himself on some harebrained rescue scheme. One nasty phone call from the villain later, and he's on the heroes' side. This is not the last time someone helps the heroes due to the villain's JerkAss tendencies.

** As Luna gloatingly tells Olive Branch himself after he's arrested, his half-assed plan and the actions of himself and his lieutenants have caused the anti-Celestia movement to lose almost all support, not only allowing the royals to focus once more on searching for [[BiggerBad Chrysalis]] rather than defending their position, but now no one will object to Twilight officially adopting Spike.

* In ''Fanfic/TheElementsOfFriendship, Book IS: Bonds'', [[BigBad Trixie's]] [[ArtifactOfDoom Alicorn Amulet]]-powered conquest of Ponyville and enslavement of its citizens gives [[AdaptationNameChange Queen Selena]] the motivation and catalyst she needs to regain her full power for the first time since she was purified of [=NightMare=] Moon.

** ''VideoGame/Fallout3'' has a similar situation, in which the protagonist is almost killed by the BigBad only to be rescued by another figure from the same evil faction in order to broker a deal - which backfires horribly when the decision is upheld, starts a mutiny, and potentially the destruction of an entire base as well as the undoing of the faction's leader.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' episode "The Gallant Smurf", young Prince Godfry falls in love with a maiden named Pricilla, but his overprotective and snobbish mother [[RitchBitch Queen Felicity]] objects to him wanting to merry a "poor, pitiful, penniless peasant" like, and gives this condition for ''anyone'' wishing to marry her son: Show her something she's never seen before. Queen Felicity is a very old woman who has seen almost everything. Most every suitor fails, and it when it looks like [[WickedWitch Hogatha]] may well succeed (she captures Grandpa Smurf, whom even ''she'' has never seen among the smurfs) Godfry and Pricilla hug and make a tearful farewell, causing Felicity to groan and say she's "never seen such true love before". After Godfry asks her to repeat it, she realizes that she just admitted Felicity has met her condition. (Presumably, Felicity kept her word and let them wed, but we can only assume it.)

* [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk The Hulk's]] ''raison d'etre'': if you're going to kill him, at least try to make him happy about it. This makes Ultimate Nick Fury DangerouslyGenreSavvy since he did JUST THAT. Pity Loki intervened.

* Canonical examples aside, ''Fanfic/RiseOfTheGaleforces'' has a case of this that works three-fold. Firstly, if Mr. Ludlow hadn't gotten the idea to clone the Supers who had died in the Golden Age, they wouldn't have contributed to the Aperture's downfall. Secondly, if he hadn't turned Violet into a T. rex, she wouldn't have had the power to wipe the floor with him and his men. And third, [[NoFourthWall if he hadn't jumped into the storyline a couple dozen chapters too late]] and tried to kill everyone participating, thus throwing a spanner into [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Ripper's]] EvilPlan, [[FireForgedFriends the Supers would never have found a reason to join forces against the enemy,]] and thus the ending might have turned out [[KillAllHumans a whole lot worse.]]
