** In ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', Surtur destroys himself in the process of destroying Asgard and the actual BigBad that the heroes [[AlwaysABiggerFish summoned him]] to destroy. That the heroes had evacuated Asgard beforehand, so his TakingYouWithMe attack doesn't actually take anyone with him other than said BigBad doesn't particularly seem to bother him.

* ''ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse'': There's a story written by Creator/DonRosa where the Beagle Boys are the main characters and decide to break into Scrooge [=McDuck=]'s money bin once again after stealing the building's original architectural plans. They carry out the scheme while the building is closed at night, but they all gradually end up trapping themselves in various situations with the remaining Beagle Boys deciding to come back for them once they've successfully carried out the heist. The comic ends with the Beagle Boys discovered by a mightily surprised Scrooge and Grandpa Beagle hearing the cops talk about this from his jail cel and muttering that his grandsons can't even beat an inanimate building.

* A major trope in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', particularly during the early seasons. [[ThouShaltNotKillMuggles Human villains]] tended to fall into pits of their own monsters while Buffy tried in vain to save them. See especially "The Pack" and "Go Fish".

** Exceptions are Malachite/Kunzite and Emerald, although Emerald unwisely took a power up from the Wiseman that turned her into a mindless dragon.

** The Sailor Scouts never seemed unwilling to kill them, it was just karma that most of the major villains killed each other. Sailor Moon tried to kill Jedite twice, and Neflite before Molly stopped her.

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'': The major villains (QuirkyMinibossSquad and up) have a tendency to either kill each other off for various reasons (YouHaveFailedMe, YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness, EvilVersusEvil) or be destroyed by their [[HoistByHisOwnPetard own technology/attacks]], leaving the [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman less human looking]] [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] and {{Big Bad}}s to be destroyed by the heroes. This is especially true of the Witches 5 from the ''S'' season. Eugeal is killed by Mimet, Mimet is killed by Telulu, Telulu is killed by her own plant, Byruit is killed by her own nanobots, and Cyprin and Petirol actually end up killing each other in battle. The Sailor Scouts never have to do a thing.
** Although Sailor Moon was the one who caused Byruit's nanocuff to backfire, and Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Mars tricked Cyprin and Petirol into killing each other
** Exceptions are Malachite/Kunzite and Emerald.
