When everyone involved is ''aware'' that all options are bad and that there's no right answer, it's a MortonsFork instead.

instead. If a character tries to learn from these mistakes and do the ''correct'' thing after, they might be a MoralPragmatist.

*** [[spoiler: Of course, the Frey's themselves, and their powerful ally Roose Bolton, were already planning on betraying Robb, given the Frey's reluctant support, and Roose's undercutting of the war effort.]]

* [[EvilTwin BlackWarGreymon's]] [[RedemptionEqualsDeath sacrifice]] in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' which created a seal to trap [[BigBad Myotismon]] also inadvertenly restricted the Digi-Destined. It's even lampshaded at one point that his sacrifice "did more harm than good".

** It's actually a little worse than that. No mention to the Master Sword is made until its first appearance, and Ganondorf could be defeated by regular methods before attaining the Triforce. Zelda's plan was simply to get the Triforce before Ganondorf could. The catch? [[spoiler: The Master Sword being the last seal meant Ganondorf could '''never''' reach the Triforce on his own anyways.]]

Sometimes, [[BeingGoodSucks it hurts to do the right thing]]. Sometimes, [[ConflictingLoyalty it's damned if you do and damned if you don't]]. And [[SenselessSacrifice sometimes, what seemed a good idea at the time turns out otherwise]]. It sounded like the right thing... but it turned out to be [[TitleDrop Not Quite The Right Thing]].

* ''VideoGame/Bioshock1'': Jack meets his first (fully conscious) encounter with a Little Sister, whose Big Daddy was conveniently killed in a tidal accident. Here, he also meets Dr. Tenenbaum, a former Rapture scientist responsible for the creation of the Little Sisters. Tenenbaum wants to undo the work she put into the Little Sisters, but Jack's MissionControl, Atlas, argues against any redeeming factors for such an action, saying that they're no different from the Splicers rampaging throughout the underwater city. Should Jack choose to [[WouldHurtAChild harvest]] the Little Sister for her ADAM (as opposed to purifying her, resulting in less ADAM but sparing her life), Atlas tries to convince Jack that he did the right thing. [[spoiler:It turns out Atlas is a villain all along, meaning that his moral justifications for harvesting were moot]].

*** To elaborate: if the bombs go off, Europe uses this incident to increase its anti-terrorism laws. If Madison dies, then ''America'' uses her death to increase its anti-terrorism laws, and nobody has come up to the plate to oppose them.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3'' turns over some "accidentally help the Nilfgaardians gain more war assets" events you perpetrated in The Witcher 2 by revealing that King Radovid, the current leader of the Northern Alliance, has devolved into a full-blown TheCaligula, mass-murdering sorceresses and nonhumans in the biggest WitchHunt in the North's history, and Emir's ruthless but well-planned Nilfgaardian conquest might be the only thing that can stop it. Still, SOME of the war assets end up turning against Emir because of his constant would-be usurpers, but you'll never know which.

Sparing Radovid will cause him to win the war but damn the north and ESPECIALLY Temaria to further decades of war and genocide, while you can resolve the whole "Nilfgaard conquers the entire world and sends it to hell" issue by simply [[spoiler:grooming a true heroine, Ciri, as next in line for Empress]].

** If you don't resolve "the Nilfgaard thing" and they conquer the world while corrupt, solving the murder mystery at Skellige results in a peaceful ruler who does not defy Nilfgaard, while allowing the perpetrator to go unpunished results in her "wimpy" son taking over, then tearing the peace treaty with Nilfgaard in half and beginning a legendary war against them as one of the greatest and well-respected Nord kings in history. Averted if you can redeem Nilfgaard through.
