** During the Impel Down Arc, Luffy's first confrontation with Magellan in Level Four of the complex is a CurbStompBattle with Luffy on the curb, with the result being Luffy poisoned Hydra, a venom that kills in 24 hours. Magellan then tells the other guards to send him to Level Five despite the fact that he'll die anyway. Unfortunately for Magellan, he's eventually found there by Ivankov and the other members of the Newkama Land colony (which not even the guards know about) and Ivankov is able to use his Horu Horu no Mi Devil Fruit power to aid Luffy in fighting off the poison, which he eventually does. As a result, Magellan soon has a crisis on his hands as Luffy's trek through Impel Down continues with even more gusto. (Of course, one can hardly blame Magellan, as ''nobody'' had ''ever'' survived the Hydra. Even Ivankov said that his help would only raise Luffy's nonexistent chance of surviving to about 5%.)

* In TanyaHuff's ''Literature/SmokeAndShadows'', the Shadowlord, an [[SorcerousOverlord evil wizard]] from [[AlternateUniverse another world]] sends shadow minions, and later comes to Earth himself, in search of a wizard who escaped during his conquest of their world. He feared they would return to overthrow him. Ironically, the wizard in question was a bit of a coward and had no intention of ever going back or fighting the Shadowlord. Only the fact that they are now being actively pursued motivates them to take a stand.

* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'': Brron. He thought by killing Juudai's friends, he would be able to defeat Juudai. Instead, it unleashes Juudai's ''UnstoppableRage'' and the secret powers of darkness within him and Brron gets stomped flat. Then Juudai goes on to be an even greater villain himself. Thanks, Brron! We couldn't have saved the world without you!

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Doflamingo's seemingly fool-proof plan to prevent Luffy enacting his SpannerInTheWorks tendencies results in this. His plot involved a tournament for Ace's devil fruit, in order to distract Luffy from destroying the [=SMILEs=] factory. Sure enough, Luffy enters, and finds himself in a pickle when he can't leave the tournament without being noticed and allowing the devil fruit to fall into Burgess's hands due to being in the finals, until ''Sabo'' arrives (apparently as a Revolutionary) and trades places with him. The thing is, Sabo's appearance is largely Doflamingo's own fault. Chances are the Revolutionary Army would have never taken action on Dressrosa and Sabo would have never appeared had it not been for the tournament for the Mera Mera no Mi. What proceeds afterwards is a domino effect that complete derails his plans, to the point that, in hindsight, setting up the tournament was the first step towards his downfall.

** Frieza's genocide of the Saiyans. Yeah, it was terrible that he betrayed his workers who did years of loyal service for him, but given how ruthless and evil the Saiyans were, Frieza did the universe a favor by all but wiping them out, especially if they succeeded in usurping him. The Saiyans were so bad that another race actually tried to kill them with a virus. There is also the added kick in the nuts to Frieza that his genocide was the reason why Goku was sent to Earth to begin with. If he hadn't, Goku would have been raised as a Saiyan and the universe wouldn't have its savior. So, thanks for fixing it twice, villain.

** Frieza does one better in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''. In the retelling he manages to kill Piccolo who [[HeroicSacrifice died protecting Gohan]], causing Gohan to have a major HeroicBSOD, blaming himself for Piccolo's death. After Frieza is dealt with Gohan asks Piccolo to train him again so he can protect his family from people like Frieza. So, thanks again Empire of Evil.

** And again when Cell tries pressing Gohan's BerserkButton. He uses his Cell Juniors to pound the Z-Warriors to hell. This, along with him crushing Android #16's head right in front of him causes Gohan to reach Super Saiyan 2. This was an instance of BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor, as Gohan had warned him about what would happen if he made Gohan lose his temper. At least Frieza and the audience at the time didn't know that it would lead to the Super Saiyan transformation; Cell, meanwhile, was an incurable perfectionist and wanted to fight his opponent at his strongest, believing himself to be incapable of losing due to being...well, [[UltimateLifeform perfect]]. You'd think that since he had some of Frieza's cells, he would have learned from his mistake…
** From the original series, Commander Red. Him contracting Mercenary Tao to kill Goku completely backfired. Because Tao murdered one of Goku's friends, it changed Goku's focus from searching for the Four-Star Dragon Ball to finding all of them. He also forced Goku to become ''much'' stronger to beat Tao, which [[ImplacableMan made him close to invincible]] when he came to the Red Ribbon Army base. He also made the mistake of making things [[ItsPersonal personal with Goku]], which made Goku more ruthless since he wanted to destroy the Red Ribbon Army instead of simply taking the Dragon Balls.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Hungry, Hungry Homer", Homer is accused of being a liar when he tries to expose [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Howard K. Duff VIII]], the greedy owner of the Isotopes' plan to move the team to Albuquerque. Homer actually stages a hunger strike, which the conniving Duff uses as an advantage, moving him to center field. But when it becomes clear that Homer will ''not'' give up, Duff unchains him and offers him a new deluxe hot dog, in front of a huge crowd. Homer very nearly succumbs to the temptation... but then notices the hot dog's toppings are all Southwestern ingredients. The crowd realizes this [[WhatAnIdiot (and on top of it, the hot dog's wrapping says "Albuquerque Isotopes" on it)]] and Duff is unable to bluff his way out now, even Duffman turning against him. (Moral of story: ''Never'' assume the BigEater you're trying to [[BribedWithFood Bribe With Food]] can't recognize it.]]

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}},'' [[NietzscheWannabe Pain]] has Naruto utterly beaten, pinned to the ground and paralyzed. When Hinata jumps in to try and save Naruto, Pain blows her away, knocking her out. Then, [[TeachHimAnger just to make a point about suffering]] (or possibly [[ForTheEvulz just to be a dick]]), he stabs her, apparently fatally. This triggers Naruto's UnstoppableRage, going straight to 6-tailed form for the first time, DoNotPassGo-style, then eventually to 8-tails, and tempted to go fully to 9. Presumably Pain thought he could win, since his ability was keeping Naruto paralyzed and with disrupted chakra. He would have been ''dead'' wrong if the 4th Hokage's safeguard hadn't brought Naruto back from the brink but even so it directly brought about his own defeat by freeing and reempowering Naruto. Nonetheless, when Naruto finally snaps out of it, Pain isn't ''nearly'' as confident anymore.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Forced Kin", an alien force defeats the girls using every single idea Mojo Jojo had ever come up with. Jojo gets so upset at the alien stealing his ideas ("[[PunctuatedForEmphasis You've. Ruined. My. DREAM!!!!!]]") that he goes primal and physically forces the alien leader to submit, driving away the attack and becoming the hero.
** Mojo Jojo is really a major victim of this trope. In fact, the most major thing is the fact that he ended up inspiring the Professor to make the Powerpuff Girls, caused the FreakLabAccident that created them, '''and''' gave them the drive to fight crime and made them accepted by the city, which was a crime-infested rat hole beforehand, pretty much making everything good in the series his fault to begin with.

* In ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', Guame televised his fight with Simon and broadcasted it to every underground human village as a means to demoralize them. It backfired when Simon defeated him for everyone to see and in turn, inspired humans to turn up as TheCavalry in the penultimate battle at Teppelin.

** Congratulations, Obito, you killed Neji, and put Naruto in a HeroicBSOD. Wait...did the ShrinkingViolet Hinata who was next to him rally Naruto again and the two fought side by side...wait...Naruto then powers up the entire army...well you still have the [[EldritchAbomination Ten-Tails so you can nuke them...wait...Naruto's army cuts through its tails and kicks you off and leaving it out of your control]]. Thanks for fixing that Obito!
** Obito basically fixed the entire series with his actions. Sending Kurama out to destroy Konoha led to the beast being sealed into Naruto, which ultimately led to Obito's undoing with Naruto and Kurama working together against him. He also brings the world together by initiating a World War in order to take the remaining tailed beasts. [[spoiler:After his HeelFaceTurn he continues fixing things by reviving Naruto and giving Kakashi [[EleventhHourSuperpower his full Sharingan abilities]], all instrumental in resolving the major conflicts plaguing the world.]]
