* Lewa for the first few years of the ''FranchisE/{{Bionicle}}'' storyline. He's supposedly become [[CharacterDevelopment less reckless and impulsive over time]], but [[TheChewToy he's still the one who usually ends up in trouble and needs rescuing]].

* Intentionally inverted in ''A Lonely Place of Dying'', where Batman, who has sworn to no longer take in a sidekick after the death of Jason Todd, has started becoming brash and impulsive without "someone to look after." Standing right outside a building he is about to investigate, Nightwing, the original Robin now all grown up, shows up to assist him. When Nightwing asks for a plan, Batman shrugs him off and jumps right into the building, [[spoiler:walking right into a trap]].
* Tim Drake chose to become Robin precisely because he believed Batman needed a sidekick to keep him on the right path.

* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'': Scrappy Doo. Cynical fans wished that Scooby would stop picking Scrappy up during his "Puppy Powerrrr!" charge and let the MonsterOfTheWeek eat him. Although, [[FridgeLogic considering all of the monsters of the week were old men in costumes, Scrappy might have been able to take them]]. And part of why [[TheScrappy Scrappy is hated]] is that, since he's always willing to attack the monster, he rather wrecks the WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief that keeps us from asking why the ''others'' don't try it.

* Jade in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures''. While she ''does'' prove invaluable, an in most cases her quick thinking is what saves the day, her insistence on ignoring any order of Jackie's, no matter how sensible and life extending, makes her an avid IdiotBall juggler. Lampshaded by Uncle.
-->'''Uncle:''' (''after Jackie tells Jade to do nothing'') Jade never "does nothing".\\

* Chuck from ''Series/{{Chuck}}'', as he's not a real spy while the other two are trained spies. Not usually particularly reckless though, and he generally tries to run away from danger unless it threatens someone he cares about.
