* A ''monumental'' example hails from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', where [[spoiler:GodOfEvil and resident BigBad Grima single-handedly creates a loophole that allows it to be permanently killed. Following Lucina and her comrades in the past, it creates a timeline where TWO versions of Grima exist. How is that a problem? The only person capable of killing Grima... is ''Grima itself''. And the present Grima (also known as ''the player's Avatar'') is a good guy more than ready to pull a HeroicSacrifice to destroy his alternate self forever. Oopsie daisy.]]

And the present Grima (also known as ''the player's Avatar'') is a good guy more than ready to pull a HeroicSacrifice to destroy his alternate self forever. Plus, the reason the Avatar is so intent to do this is because the Future Grima tried to merge with his past self at a point when the past self was weak; this caused the present Grima to loose all memories, create deeper bonds with the people who find him / her and be more ready to stop the Future Grima.

*** The entire game might not have happened if not for [[BigBad Alduin]] pulling this trope. The Dovahkiin would have died a nameless nobody in Helgen if Alduin hadn't interrupted their execution by trying to kill them.

(Possibly justified, or at least excused, given that Alduin's colossal {{Pride}} probably made him want to be the one to kill the Last Dragonborn directly.)

** If Dickinson (the face of the anti-independence faction) hadn't basically began gloating about how his vote would kill the independence vote, Franklin wouldn't have had enough time to call for a delegation poll, leaving the final vote (and the fate of the United States) in the hands of [[spoiler:Wilson, who sides with the independence voters because he doesn't want to be remembered in history]].

** 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 rivaled 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.

* ''FanFic/{{crawlersout}}'': After Fem!Harry admits she wouldn't be able to stand by if people were being persecuted, Gellert Grindelwald deems her a threat and tries to kill her. It backfires ''horribly'': [[spoiler:since Harry is the Master of Death, she is immune to the Killing Curse. Worse, Grindelwald used the Elder Wand to cast it; as Harry's ownership of the wand trumps any other claims, no matter the time or place, the curse ''rebounded''. The only reason Grindelwald survived is because Harry saved him, leaving him life indebted to the woman he just tried to murder]].

* Children book "You're A Hero, Daley B" by Jon Blake. Selfsame hero is a rabbit who doesn't know who he is and where he belongs. And what his overlarge feet are good for. [[PoorCommunicationKills His fellow rabbits easily could have told him...]] Along comes the weasel Jazzy D and tells him he is a rabbit and her designated lunch, incidentally also solving the feet conundrum [[KillerRabbit (they are good for kicking bloodthirsty weasels to kingdom come).]]

* This is {{Spenser}} and [[http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/j/michael-jecks/ Baldwin Furnshill's]] chief method to solving crimes without evidence. Annoy people until they try to kill you, then find out who they worked for. Though Baldwin doesn't actually try to annoy people; usually the bad guy who falls into this trap hates him for his rank and title, or his loyalties and suspected beliefs, said series taking place in a particularly hectic time of English history. Spenser, on the other hand, is actively trying to invite this trope a lot of the time. A lot of his cases would have been a lot shorter (and unsolved) if the villains had been smart enough to just shut up and leave him alone.

*''WesternAnimation/CaptainUnderpantsTheFirstEpicMovie'': Professor Poopypants does this ''twice''. The first time was when he had the Turbo Toilet 2000 "eat" Captain Underpants. In doing so, he exposed CU to the pretty much radioactive leftovers from the school cafeteria, and it results in him getting ''real'' superpowers. The second time is when he's [[NearVillainVictory seemingly won after erasing George and Harold's sense of humor]]. He mentions the planet Uranus, which triggers the memory of how George and Harold first met, and gets them laughing again.

* At the start of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto3'', gangsters from the Colombian Cartel raid a prison transport to kidnap an elderly, Asian gentleman. In the process, the game's protagonist Claude escapes and eventually eliminates the Cartel from Liberty City. Additionally, bomb maker 8-Ball escapes and Claude buys explosives from him to destroy a ship used by the Cartel to transport drugs. Furthering the irony even more, the entire reason Claude was in the prison transport was because he was betrayed by the Cartel's leader, Catalina.
